    I'm still trying to figure out how that Accept show can be financially viable.

    1,000 tickets only - $80 a ticket, $200 for VIP.

    Assuming 20 VIP that would be $84,000 ticket sales.

    Getting 5 band members, plus at least a couple of crew, and all their gear to Australia, accommodation, transport, food, venue booking, plus all the promoter costs..

    Looks like it's part of a tour including an LA date and then Japan so that would help spread costs. They're obviously flying economy though. ;)

    I find the lack of power/symphonic international bands touring Australia very depressing :(

    My wallet says thanks, my heart is sad :p

    It's more thrash bands I want! I take what I can get from whatever's trending though... I've seen dozens and dozens of stoner/doom bands, haha.

    That's a lot of bands touring! The main band i want to see that I haven't yet is Within Temptation. I'm not holding my breath though.

    THIS. Sooooooo much this.

    Although I don't love them nearly as much now as say 5 or 10 years ago I would still following them everywhere if they came to Australia. REGARDLESS of whether I could afford to or not :p

    Promoter friends have tried to get them here previously - but apparently they want to play arenas and they are not gonna fill arenas here.
