    He's done other odds and ends, but the movie soundtrack is hugely popular.

    I know ZZ Top played in 2002 at Blues festival as i was there.Only trouble was that they kept everyone waiting for about an hour and a half after their scheduled time and i was too tired after 11 hours at the festival too really enjoy them and plus they just seemed to be going through the motions.However,friends who saw them at the Ent Cent in Sydney the night before said they were great.

    Anyway, i've got myself a ticket on the floor for the first night at the Enmore Theatre. $150 for the Enmore Theatre!!..........tha't way above anything i ever paid at the Enmore

    I paid $300 a ticket for Kiss at the Enmore. It was worth every cent.

    Yeah it was pretty good, sydney had 3 sell out shows apparntly. I think most people know that they probably wont be back agian.
    All the songs seemed to be really short, either they just are or it was my imagination. as blondie would finish singing the backing band she was with continued on rocking doing solos was pretty good, she walked off at one point, (I think it was the heat/drinks needed) and the band just broke out playing untill she came back - wasnt long maybe a minute or 2 but you could see it wasnt planned... for 65 she looks pretty good!

    As for the Pretenders Martin looked to be having some issues keeping up, I was cringing when he started to 'strip' but the older ladies in the crowed loved it... Hahah just thinking of some of the dance moves last night the 80's must have been good lol...

    in saying that I had a migrain so I didnt really enjoy it as much as I think I would have :(

    Most of those songs would have been pretty short. Good to hear that Blondie was worth it. I knew the Pretenders would be good.
