Saw them on Monday. Yes, it was everything it should be. I know that they're taking crap for not being able to reschedule shows, but I spoke with David after the show- they're all adults with jobs, families, lives- they can no more afford to add a few weeks to their vacation time than any of the rest of us. In addition, while I talking with David, a few fans who'd been at the show in Harrisburg, and even now, the pain David had at how badly that show went was palpable- he was talking about how he literally called his mother while the police were taking equipment, and even his Mother was telling him that it was over.I really do hope they come to Australia. Heck, what I really hope is that they can stick together, and tour for a few more years. However, I can say from seeing them first-hand, they're under a LOT of pressure. It's going to be tough going for them.
That's too bad they're under such pressure, I'd hope it would be a joyous and lucrative return for them. The Big Day out was announced a few days ago and I had my fingers crossed for them to appear but alas not - one day. Such a great, great band - totally jealous you got to see them.
