    What's that, all the tools there just to see TOOL, without any inkling of how ironic that is?

    True on both counts - but what is the point of rules if they aren't enforced?

    "Anyone inside the event not wearing a top will have their wristband removed and will be ejected from the event. Intimidating behaviour will not be tolerated."

    Not according to Wiki

    On this tour, the band has pledged to play some of their classic albums in full on some nights, and is varying their set lists more than usual - rarely-played songs from their first two albums are being played, possibly for the first time in twenty-five years. Such songs include Roulette, Get Ready, Only Lonely, Tokyo Road, Let It Rock, Wild Is the Wind, Something to Believe In, It's Hard Letting You Go, Santa Fe and Homebound Train (vocals by Richie Sambora)

    Looking at that set lists site, Runaway is the only one being played in Australia - on some nights.

    I'm really surprised they didn't play Tokyo Road in Tokyo.

    "Let it Rock" is from Slippery When Wet, not one of the first two albums.

    Homebound Train is from New Jersey, I think what they're trying to say is those songs haven't been played live for 25 years.

    I'm surprised to hear that about Let It Rock, I think JBJ is avoiding the high pitched songs, Dr.'s orders I hear, he stopped doing the high pitched stuff in Runaway a long time ago.

    And yet he's still doing "Living on a Prayer". Not that he couldn't.

    The audience would crucify him if he didn't. I notice he sings some parts in a lower register and points the mike to the crowd and gets them to sing the high bits. The song is towards the latter part of a 3 hour show so he can be forgiven.

    From the footage I show of last night's show, the crowd sang most of it.

    Black Label Society had dates up on their website a few weeks back for Australian cities with a TBA in the venues column. They have since disappeared.

    I'm trying to imagine watching metal bands on a ship, then seeing them walking around the rest of the time. Sounds like a sweet arrangement to me!

    Sounds just like Farnsey doing You're The Voice now. I understand that he probably can't hit those heights now, but I also think "why bother?".

    Is anyone going to the Darkest Hour / Carniflex show tonight at the Factory? I'm trying to figure out if it's worthwhile shelling out $55 to see Norse (it's Shayne's first gig with them), since I've never heard the other bands

    Brisbane folk:

    "Few artists in rock history can carry off the single moniker, and carry it with gravitas.

    SLASH is one of that rare breed.

    Since emerging with Guns N’ Roses, SLASH has been one of the world’s most sought after guitarists. Michael Jackson, Ray Charles, Stevie Wonder, Quentin Tarantino and so many other fellow icons have sought his services in order to make the good sound great. Critics and fans alike still debate the greatest rock riff of all time with “Sweet Child O’ Mine” consistently taking top honors. Time Magazine placed SLASH second only to Jimi Hendrix amongst the greatest guitarists of all time.

    It therefore came as little surprise that when SLASH put out the word about recording an album, the likes of Ozzy Osbourne, Iggy Pop, Chris Cornell, Dave Grohl, Lemmy, Ian Astbury, Andrew Stockdale and others smashed down the studio door to be a part of it. ‘Slash’ (the self titled album) is everything that was ever great about rock music. For all those who will undoubtedly find themselves praying at the Altar O’ Slash “Modern rock will not get much better than this, we have encountered a new standard, a new “classic” that is every bit as good as the best of the best from decades long” – Metal Resource.com

    It would be hard to find a band with grander artistic scope than COHEED AND CAMBRIA. Over the course of nine years and five groundbreaking albums, the New York foursome has diligently developed a unique sound combining forward-thinking classic rock with strong pop sensibilities and intricate musicianship. An epic alternate universe of extended tracks with odd time signatures, convoluted ballads with fiery guitars, anthemic instrumental crescendos and everything in between, COHEED AND CAMBRIA live show is just as intense and hypnotic, "at one point you felt as if you were inside the pages of a twisted comic book, the next walking through a graveyard, at the bottom of the ocean or even floating in space—and the music kept dragging you in further." - Hey Reverb

    TAKING DAWN grew up surrounded by the glitz and glam, the bright lights and big city of constant vice. This Las Vegas upbringing helped shaped the band into what it is today: a rock'n'roll timebomb just waiting to explode on an unsuspecting public. Inspired by the 80s glam metal era, TAKING DAWN has chosen to take the foundation of that sound and scene and update it in a thoroughly modern way: by shredding, soloing and creating melody in their music. The band rejects genre classification, frontman Chris Babitt saying, "Our music is about attitude and being open to rocking out to a song... The genre barrier bullshit is not for us." Genres, compartmentalization and safe rock 'n roll be damned.

    The man himself is ever modest about his place in rock history but SLASH's upcoming appearances at Soundwave Festival and his intimate Sidewave in Brisbane with COHEED AND CAMBRIA and TAKING DAWN will leave his legions of fans with no doubts at all."

    SLASH, COHEED AND CAMBRIA, TAKING DAWN: Tivoli, Brisbane. March 2

    I am so stoked !! The Rob Zombie/Coheed timetable clash at Soundwave was a major buzzkill for me so this solves that problem :D
