Man that would have ruled.Aussie Bhoy said:I remember seeing Kiss at Lang Park in 1980, which for a short time made me the coolest guy at school as I was the only one to go, I still have the ticket.
yer.. it doesnt really bother me that much because the bands i like only use small venues. for example im going to a Parkway Drive concert at the rosemount this saturday.. its sold out, but thats probably only somewhere between 500- 800 people, not even.ryan79 said:^^
Don't forget Perth has a lack of stadium that would make it worth their while right now. And don't say Burswood Dome - that thing is hideous.
KISS played the WACA but the WACA is only allowed 2 or 4 concerts per year so we must select carfully.
Wait till we get our new City Arena up and running and add our new sports stadium (fingers crossed) which should be able take on concerts as well. Then we might get more acts over.
I remember when Metallica last toured (not BDO). I signed a petition to get them over to Perth - they ended up selling out 2 concerts at PEC!

not good news from Sydney's Telstra stadium last night.
some people that went last night said it was worst concert they have been to because of the terrible feedback and reverberation! many walked out.Venue staff had to move 150 people from out of a 'dead spot" to more expensive seatings.
but he still plays fantastic!
Yeah size doesn't always mean a good time. Part when it comes to attracting big acts you need size.Perth4life said:yer.. it doesnt really bother me that much because the bands i like only use small venues. for example im going to a Parkway Drive concert at the rosemount this saturday.. its sold out, but thats probably only somewhere between 500- 800 people, not even.
Funnily enough, the night after The Stones, we went and saw the Hothouse FLowers. I saw there last Sydney show in 1993 and they are a fantastic live act. Unlike the stones where we were almost at the back of 58,000 people, we were at the front of under 1000 in the Newtown RSL. We even had drinks after the concert with them :laugh: We had just as much fun seeing The Flowers as The Stones - and as you suggest, perhaps the tiny venue helped. **** it was loud though - ears still ringing. The Stones cost us $35 ea and the Flowers $45 ea + beers.ryan79 said:Yeah size doesn't always mean a good time. Part when it comes to attracting big acts you need size.
One reason I hate the BDO - you never get close enough to see an act. I have been to many raves - both small and huge but most of those small 500 to 1000 people gigs are very cool. Even smaller 50 -100 people wharehouse gigs are great.
So this time round it's off......and I almost booked flights for Melbourne and HR.....shew......well, hope they reschedule for all the fans down under.Tree climb fells Rolling Stone
April 30, 2006
ROLLING Stones guitarist Keith Richards has been airlifted to a New Zealand hospital with a head injury.
The 62-year-old and fellow Stones member Ron Wood were attempting to climb the tree at an exclusive Fijian resort last week when he slipped and fell, hitting his head, newspapers reported today.
Richards was reportedly flown from the Wakaya Club to Nausori Airport near Suva where he was treated at the Suva Private Hospital on Thursday morning, the papers said.
He was then reportedly transferred to Auckland's Ascot Hospital on Thursday afternoon where he remained yesterday with his wife, Patti Hansen, by his side.
Rolling Stones spokeswoman Fran Curtis said Richards, 62, was treated locally then flown to a hospital outside of Fiji as a precaution.
Curtis said Richards suffered a mild concussion. She said she did not know how it happened. He was still hospitalized on Saturday.
The Fijilive.com web site reported that the accident was believed to have happened at Fiji's exclusive Wakaya Club resort.
Richards and his family were enjoying a holiday at the exclusive resort following their Australian tour.
The SA Government spent nearly $500k luring the Rolling Stones to play their only outdoor concert as the grand opening for the redeveloped Adelaide Oval Stadium. Ofcourse this has been cancelled aswell as all other Australian shows, however the Rolling Stones are reported to be coming back later this year.Why they were due to play at the small Brisbane Entertainment Centre (13,500) rather than Lang Park (52,000) is a mystery to me after it was sold out in seconds. Also I thought the prices were way over the top, I know shows cost a bit to put on, but I've seen acts like Prince, the Beach Boys, Yusuf Islam (Cat Stevens), Barry Gibb, etc playing at the same venue for less than half the prices the stones tickets were. How many millions do they need in the bank? Sadly I didn't make it but Bruce Springsteen had the whole E Street band here recently and charged far, far less.
PROMOTERS have confirmed The Rolling Stones will return to Adelaide Oval at the conclusion of this year’s football season.
Well it's more like a stadium now!^look at the couple at 1:07 in the vid, he's playing with his belly button lol.
I think thats the first time I've heard it called Adelaide Oval Stadium
