Hmm (kicks dust)..want to sell your Midnight Oil ticket for Friday concert?

Larfin 13 March 2009 31

OK, yes, shame on me. Got too caught up in the humdrum of life to get my ticket to the Oils in Canberra on Friday night [tonight].

However, given I grew up on their albums, and missed the chance to catch them live whilst they were together, plus the fact that I’m now a fully occupied dad of 2.5 kids under 5 and rarely get out, perhaps there’s a GenY’er who’s just going along for the curio show who could take it or leave it.

If you could leave it,.. then I’m interested in getting in touch to grab a ticket.

Will save me harassing people on the way in if I can’t find a scalper.  God knows it took me long enough to get the leave pass to get out in the first place. Go on, you know you’d rather be somewhere else…

aww scootergal, i was hoping something miraculous happened and you got a ticket, danced in the mosh pit while staring into each other’s sweat drenched eyes and went off to pancake parlour for some canoodling in a booth before a peck on the cheek and a skip through the moonlight home again…

you’ll get him another time then? 🙂

Got him anyway!!

Tonka’s review almost made me think about going, but no bugger it. I never loved them that much, apart from Wedding Cake Island (I have Bird Noises). So I didn’t.

I opted for staying in with my amazing, wonderful, coming of age daughter. She is only 12 and heading up to sydney tomorrow for the ‘Sound Relief’ gig there. I am slightly jealous but still in awe of her. Sure to be a great line up, but oils not playing that one…

there are still tickets there, crappy seating ones, but still available as of about 6pm.

Primal Primal 3:56 pm 13 Mar 09

Ticketek website says there is indeed some seating available. Looks like they’ve opened the seats on the far edges.

Those will likely be the tickets that the oils management put aside for overseas travelling fans.

I heard that they were putting some aside that would be released if overseas people didn’t buy them..

Ticketek just released another 100 tix (according to a mate who’s in line).

Larfin I have a spare ticket. Post your phone number and I will call you.

jessieduck jessieduck 2:35 pm 13 Mar 09

Larfin are you not checking the thread to get the tickets? Happy to help but being a Friday afternoon I want to get this show on the road…

I’d be hoping they pull out US Forces for an encore tonight.

Support act was a comedian called Clint(?), wasn’t bad. If you get up the front of the crowd you may even get picked to be part of the second-ever Air Midnight Oil band!

Nah, probably heading over to the Old canberra Inn…

I was really hoping for US Forces but i reckon Mr Rudd may have said something about that.

Tonka Tonka 12:58 pm 13 Mar 09

Are you going again tonight thumper?

I’ll be there. Maybe we can have a drink beforehand?

Yep P&P was great with the brass. Ditto for Best of Both Worlds.

I would be very hard pressed to find a fav. Generals maybe because it was so different.

They’ve said they’re mixing up the sets over the two nights, so I can’t wait to hear what they come up with tonight.

The support act was a comedian. Not sure of his name. I was drinking the compulsory pre-show beers when he was on.

So was I…

How good was ‘Power and the passion’ with the brass?

Tonka Tonka 12:17 pm 13 Mar 09

Hey Nambucco,

Cheers for that. I actually used to write for BMA & Canb Times way, way back in the day.

I’m a bit rusty at the reviews but I tried.

I doubt BMA have much use for an old fart like me ha ha.

I would be happy to do a proper review of both nights for them if they’d print it.

The support act was a comedian. Not sure of his name. I was drinking the compulsory pre-show beers when he was on.

They’ve used a comedian as an opening act before.

Steady Eddie opened for them on the 20,000 watt rsl tour. That was funny.

Steady Eddie is just wrong. Funny but wrong.
