Just back from the 3rd show in Sydney. What a nice surprise at the end of it! When Vocal faded out and the lights were turned on (which normally means that it's time to "row that boat home"), they started playing Absolutely Fabulous (single version)! Everyone really appreciated that and started dancing!

On the second show they did not bother saying "good night" and getting out to be back and play "encores" — just continued without that (or their engineers forgot to pause before starting playing Being Boring). It was also amazing to see one of them popping onto the stage to check something with Chris and talk to him when he was playing the song!

I was very very honoured to go back stage and meet Neil and Chris after the show while the boys were winding down last night (Sunday night), very casual and relaxed conversation, two very down-to-earth (and busy) gentlemen.

Presets DJ set was enjoyable too, and the venue being relatively small made the show that much more personal and enjoyable.

Till next time lads : )

If they had a heart they would come back and put me out of my misery. (From having missed them. I have Post Traumatic Stress Syndrome to this day because that New Years Eve in Sydney!)

Haven't been on the forum since I started this thread. Had an epic night at the Electric gig in Sydney, followed by the best view of the Opera House in the city to watch the lights of Vivid festival that night.
Thankfully, have now moved back to Ireland so getting to see the boys will be so much easier (funny how that becomes a factor in where you choose to live, haha)

I wish I'd met you while you were still living in Australia, NMMary. Then I could come and visit you in Ireland when there just so happens to be a PSB concert on! ;-)

Lucky, Lucky You!

Those spoiled devotees who live in the UK.. I just don't think they truly appreciate how lucky they are!

*sigh*

Last night, I spoke to Neil in London from my office in Perth.
He said they’ll be bringing Dreamworld to Australia in 2021 including to Perth.

That would be amazing!!! 8) Last time I saw them live was Melbourne 1994! I hope they do all the major cities, then we'll all be happy!

I agree - and I think if they do Perth (Neil promised me an interview) they'll obviously do the bigger cities.

That's great. It'll be the first time they'll come to Melbourne since I've become a fan around the time Pandemonium (the live album) was released.
Literally the only thing I'm looking forward to in 2021.
Who knows if they'll do a festival or a standalone.
Last time they were here it was a festival. I'd like to think they can do a standalone show but a festival is lower risk I think.

Exciting news! (fingers crossed that the Melbourne gig isn't on a Saturday)
