    Oh, and I hope nobody is expecting there to be much merchandise. I saw two shirts for sale. Maybe a couple of other little things.

    That was posted Tim what posted that. I'm not going. Anything less than 10,000 at Acer is going to be disaster. THe place will sound like a hangar.

    Not sure yet... I'm training it up to Sydney and then a friend is picking me up on the way in to catch up with Andy to grab my tickets (yes, my life is THAT complicated all the time! HAHA!) so I'm not sure what time I'm actually gonna be there. But if I'm there in time, alcoholic beverages will be consumed. :)

    word of warning: keep an eye out for a guy in a 3 piece suit and long coat.

    just saying. ;)

    Damn it, it's on at the same time as the footy, and I never miss St Kilda in the finals. Just as well I hadn't bought a ticket yet. Disappointing though.

    I just realised that the footy's on next door, so had the idea of going from one to the other. Checked the playing times though, and Priest are on from 20:55-22:15. Dang. What a short and early set!

    a friend gave me a lift at the last minute, so made it to the show.

    was fucking awesome!

    the moshpit was full of fuckwits and pretty rough, so moved to the gate area on the right hand side (close enough to almost touch Halford and Tipton when they moved to the furthest part of the stage).

    as for crowd size.
    None of the upper silver seating were filled but the very upper ones were.
    a some sections seemed empty but also know some people moved to the silver floor section from seats.

    but was an awesome show and was so glad to get up there.

    now, does anyone have a set list for the night?

    Well, the Brisbane one was the same as the setlist I linked to on the first or second page of this thread... pretty sure it's the same anyway. So chances are Sydney was the same too.

    There were only two shirts that I could see, maybe a couple of posters and such as well.

    I walked over to the venue after the footy, and some dude gave me his ticket on his way out, so I got to go in for the encore. :headbang: Just heard the end of Painkiller; I wish I'd been there five minutes earlier. The crowd in Melbourne was decent, if not massive.

    I feel empty. Only one concert left for the year (Def Leppard) and then nothing. :(

    Who the fuck leaves the venue during Painkiller?! Lucky you got to hear the encores, Winmar.

    I'm noting Angel as my official "leave the hall for a drink" break:kickass:
