    If i was you, I'd give up my internet connection or something for the $50 ticket to see Priest. Just saying... I know it can be hard to come up with cash, especially if you have a family who depend on you but if they are a top five band of yours... Food for thought.:headbang:

    Oops, I didn't realise the Brisbane show was this Wednesday night, thought it wasn't for another week or two. Lucky I saw the ad in today's paper. :)

    due to work training, money and not getting much cash next pay, may have to stay home for this show and on sell my ticket to repay the people who brought it for me.

    sucks but that's life.

    chance I still may be able to go but it's not a high one at this point in time. :(

    OK, listened to the new album again today and now I'm looking forward to the concert. Such a great piece of work. Perhaps the fact that it's so different from their other stuff is why I like it so much.

    I respect it more than I actually enjoy it, but yes it is a good album, just too long.

    So, anyone else concerned that, according to the Ticketek website, Priest will only be on for 85 mins? Yikes.

    well, looks as though I'm not going.

    if I don't do this training course, I'll lose my job.
    and now out the price of two tickets too.

    oh, well.

    hope that you all enjoy.

    nope.
    tried.

    it comes down to the fact that al employees of the security company that I work for need to have these new certifications and if we don't have them, can't work.
    So would have to wait until the next course (some months away) so won't be able to work until then.

    sucks massively but such is life.

    one hope would be get a lift after 4 and go straight to the show but that doesn't look like happening at all, because everyone wants to get there early.

    Brisbane gig is tonight. Might show up late because I have no interest in seeing the support acts. Leave around 8ish I think because the Brisbane Entertainment Centre is just a few minutes away.

    Just got home from the gig. Great stuff!

    Small crowd though - reduced seating and still didn't sell out.

    Oh, and the opening act that I saw, Electric Mary (missed the first band), were excellent. Was excellent. Whatever. Probably the best no-name support act I've seen.

    What's a "small crowd"? What would you say the numbers were?

    I'm not very good at estimating crowd sizes. Maybe 2000, if that?
