The gig looked so wonderful judging from the stuff on youtube and the plethora of pictures! It's great that they're opening the encore with Stereotypes, definitely a treat to see live! Munch, you're gonna love the Perth show tomorrow!!

Great pics, thanks for that! Love Graham's shirt, btw.

It was great. Of course my preferred setlist would not get a look in but overall great gig and they seemed to enjoy it. Sounded great from where I was. Love closing my eyes at these gigs and just listening to these wonderful songs being played live.

My short-ish review of the show:
AMAZING! But that's not all, it wasn't perfect. Like the lights for example, they were very bright, annoying and in my eyes. Also there were no screens on the side so
I could barely see the band. But now onto the good, the show was very energetic and the disco balls on "Thought I Was A Spaceman" were great.

If the Melbourne gig was anything to go by, the good peeps of Perth are in for one helluva show...

...plenty of water-anointing & hi-fives from Damon to us lucky duckies up front; signature split jumps, backward roll & face-pulling from Graham; sterling stick work from the irrepressible Dave & even Alex 'dacked up' for the occasion, ditching the dodgy shorts of fashion crimes past...

Ridiculously grateful that the boys came to play upside down "on this [not so] little island"...just don't leave it so long between drinks next time, lads! ;)

So I finally got around to scribbling a review to go with the photos.

If anyone is up for a bit of gushing self indulgence...
