Yeah, it's already been made reasonably clear that a "resumption" of the tour will be under the reversed name of Experience + Innocence.

Arenas ideally, but unlikely. AAMI Park could get the gig in Melbourne out. Would be better than Docklands

oh, alright then. first i'd heard of it, i wasn't trying to be a dick (i may have come across that way), but it was before my first coffee of the day.

wish they could come up with something a little better than that if they're not going to keep calling it i+e though. i would rather they just stick with the name and sensibly make this the "e" part of i+e.

AAMI Park would be too small though, wouldn't it? As in, why do 2-3 at AAMI when they can make the same amount of money from 2 at Docklands?

I don't think it's a bad idea really - shift the emphasis in the name, and signal that they're now supporting SOE rather than SOI.

Of course, given this was from band blather in an interview (I forget which one) and we know how much they all lie now, they'll probably name the next tour the Super Happy Fun Time Touring Juggernaut instead.

Good god, the MCG's acoustics. I can't recall it being used much for concerts at all in more than a decade of living in Melbourne. I never saw anything there other than Sound Relief.

can't wait for songs of ascent in 2010!

as an aside, i found out this morning that it's likely i'll be travelling to aus for work for 2-3 weeks in the new year. my company's head office is in melbourne, at some point you fuckers will have to meet up with me for a pint and a koala steak (that's what you eat down there right?) so that i don't go running off into the outback out of boredom.

I need to do a mileage run for Qantas about this time.

It's pretty easy to get kangaroo steak.

I now live in Wollongong, but Sydney's just up the railway line and I expect I'll visit Melbourne on a monthly basis, maybe even more regularly.

i was being sarcastic about the koala steaks, but it's actually surprisingly easy to get kangaroo meat here as well. i've had grilled kangaroo steak (kinda gamey) and a kangaroo burger that was excellent. is it cheap there or is is a specialty game meat (like elk or beaver is here)?

Huh, I tried to find roo once in New Zealand and had no luck. It's basically the same price as a decent beef. I use roo mince in my bolognese sauces all the time.

From what I heard I could have sworn they were touring in Aus/NZ this year. Multiple sources from the band and Live Nation indicated a summer leg from around November. I would almost be certain stadiums were getting dates locked in before they decided to finish the tour and move onto Songs of Experience. Maybe Michael Coppel's visit to them in the US was his last ditch effort to convince them for this year. I only hope it means they start the E+I tour in Australia and New Zealand.

An Australian restaurant opened a couple years ago in my neighborhood in NYC. They had kangaroo burgers and steak. Haven't tried the steak yet but the burger was pretty good!
