Australia/New Zealand

Postby Merinda » Mon Jun 18, 2012 7:47 am

I'm Australian and living in New Zealand. We're basically the same cept for the accent and Vegemite versus Marmite so lets all get along and enjoy the forum.

I do like the All Blacks.

Australia FTW! I can't believe i just typed FTW.

Vegemite is better than Marmite and anyone who says any different can get out.

Yep. August 29 I think mine is. I'm going more for Myles than Slash although that's not to say I don't like Slash. Apocalyptic Love is a boss album.

You wouldn't have spent as much as me. Flew over to both Sydney and Melbourne from Perth and also went to Soundwave which was an extra $150 on top. Close to $1000 I think I spent but it was worth every cent.

Ha. Boyfriend, Alasdair on here, manages Mark's facebook and Myles' as well at one point and got in touch with Myles over Twitter, MK said he'd sort it, we met them behind the Enmore, Alasdair told Myles who he was and boom, we're in. Was pretty bloody awesome.

Managed to get a few vids.

Satchel is Boss. I'm not really a Panther fan as the cheezy metal doesn't do it for me. They are brilliant musicians though and Satchel's solo he did was awesome.

Those vids are boss. What I would give to meet the guys and watch the soundcheck.

I got a couple of vids as well. I got most of the guitar duel, the end of Isolation (IIRC the sound isn't the best) and Blackbird which is ruined by my horrific singing. I took a heap of photos as well but only a couple turned out as my phone didn't like the lighting. This was the best one I got but I can't remember if it was from Sydney or Melbourne.

Kiwi here. Haha ditto to the man who expressed displeasure at having to share a thread with Aussies :lol .

Just kidding. I actually like Australians. Although I never express that thought in public for fear of being castrated.

Just wondering, where are you guys going to purchase the Tremonti album from? Is there any sort of retail release for this album in au/nz?

I'm thinking of getting it from amazon.co.uk since the postage is relatively cheap and delivery times aint that bad.
