HTDAAB released in Australia on Sat 20th

I have made some phone calls and apparently the official release date for HTDAAB is Sunday 21st but stocks will arrive on Saturday afternoon.

Most of the shops I spoke to will have them "available" (but not on the shelf) after lunch on Saturday.

6 days and 19 hours to go

JB Hifi is always putting stuff out early. Got the Slane DVD early... Elliott Smith's new album early... John Safran vs. God early... all the Saturday before the Monday or Tuesday release.

JB hifi is great, their customer is way superior than other music stores. Ordering HTAAB at Trax was a frustrating experience, the guy was so freakin hard to communicate to.

HMV & Sanity will sell it on Saturday. Not sure about Virgin.

If it's not on the shelves, just ask and they should be able to get one from the storeroom.

I spoke to the guy from leading edge and he said sometimes the boxed sets come in a few days after that album! Hopefully not but he promised to call me asap! He'd better otherwise i'll be on the phone twice a day untill it comes in!!!

Does anyone have any thoughts on how to get the best tickets for the concerts when they are announced?????

Virgin would be identical to Sanity seeing as they are one and the same.
