    I'll be at the Big Top, I also intend on going sober as I wish to recall all detail of the night, not just snippets.

    And three days before the gig Disturbed are playing at the Horden!! WOO!!

    I'm sure no one here cares about "Disturbed". Anyway back on topic. Are there any tickets left anywhere? Just watching Bloodbath The Wacken Carnage and it's made me want to sell everything I can to go see Opeth. :headbang:

    Ticketek dosent say Melbourne is sold out? Actually "Allocation Exhausted" fuck.

    Brisbane or Sydney better? How many ppl does each place hold? 2 gigs at any of them 2?

    I think Luna Park Big Top holds around 2000 (they'll have it on website).

    Luna Park is pretty much under the harbour bridge but on the opposite side of the airport. Screw taxi, I suggest catch a bus. As long as you can make it to the city, getting to Milson's Pt station is a breeze and won't cost you too much.

    As for Brisbane, somebody else..

    ps- I remember in 06, I saw a family leave Luna Park and kids looking up at a huge line of black metalheads. Made me giggle, 'kids, this is what you don't become'

    Fuck cab, I'm getting the train from Sydney International, changing lines and getting off at the closest station which is like 500m from the big top. Then a night rider later back to the airport. The big top website has travel details. Plus as I don't know Sydney too well, I used this site to work out the best transport http://www.131500.info/realtime/default.asp.

    I got mine of the day they went on sale and have number 1071. How you have 31 is beyond me.

    I've almost decided on heading to Sydney for this - can anyone give me any reasons why I should consider a different concert?

    (if it's a help I thought I'd mention that I've never been to Oz, only Tasmania)

    I bought mine on the day the day they came out and I have ticket number 1505, so it looks like a full house lol. Be fucking hilarious though if it was only 34 people. A forum meet up wouldn't be too hard, given we would make up most of the people in the room :lol:. Oh and to Defluo, come to Melbourne, the sounds destroys at the Palace.

    I bought my Sydney ticket about 3 weeks ago and the number says 72. So it's probably irrelevent.:erk:

    I hope they play a few Watershed songs.

    Initially I was a bit down about the new album (before it was released) because I was obsessed with hearing classics such as When and Advent live, and as more songs are written there is less chance of hearing others. However, after experiencing Watershed, anything and I shall be delighted.
