Hey, what was that satellite radio station you mentioned yesterday? I couldn't think of it this morning.

In all fairness, it blurs with Perth as a satellite city. Hence my wink in the last post.

Ah, gotcha. Yeah, it looks like it's basically a suburb of Perth.

I wonder why PT didn't stop in Adelaide on their tour?

First Wave

I think it's channel 21 or something, right before Alt Nation.

Just looked up things, and Mandurah, which I thought was just a southern suburb of Perth and mainly know for a new railway line built there, is actually WA's second largest city. It has 67,000 people.

I'm surprised PT didn't hit Adelaide too. At both the Melbourne and Sydney shows, SW made remarks along the lines of "a couple of months ago, we didn't know if anybody here even wanted to hear our music". So I think this tour was really just testing the waters. Next time around, I think they'll hit Perth and Adelaide. Hell, Dream Theater hit Perth and Adelaide earlier this year on their first Aussie tour!

Speaking of PT, I'm ready for my copy of Stupid Dream to arrive in the mail already!

Dream Theater made it over to Perth? Wow, good for them.

You'd think a certain popular Irish band could have made it there on their last tour, too.

I'm loving how we are turning quite a few people here onto this great band.

Perth was Dream Theater's very first Australian show. And it was a cock-up! The date got changed (to Australia Day when everyone's going to see free fireworks rather than paying $100+ for an obscure band, wooops) and the venue got changed TWICE. So one fan took footage of Hitler from some movie and subtitled it to be Hitler ranting about how much of a fuck up everything was; Mike Portnoy saw it and got it played as the intro to the concert!

Aaaand then some rather crucial technology (I forget what) failed near the end of the main set and the band had to abandon the concert! Poor Perth. Even when bands do get there, they get fucked.

As for U2, they seem to almost have a pattern going. UF and Lovetown hit both Perth and Adelaide, but since then, ZooTV did Adelaide but not Perth, Popmart did Perth but not Adelaide, and Vertigo did Adelaide but not Perth!

See, a PT Survivor may just work out.

Deadwing was enough for me to go nuts and start my quest to get all their albums... scratch that, Arriving Somewhere was enough!

I was listening to the live version of Arriving Somewhere from, uh, the Arriving Somewhere DVD earlier. Now there's a song I would've loved to have heard at the three recent shows.

I can see Adelaide being done without Perth (obviously), but the other way around? It makes no sense playing Perth without Adelaide, as that's the closest city!

Arriving Somewhere is in my top 3.
