bonobaby:
Oh hell yeah, today I woke up in tears of JOY!!!

Sydney, here I come.

I am so chuffed, I was getting all worried there would be no Aussie dates.

What a lovely way to finish an election weekend.  I vote for U2!

Yay!

Of course, from a Kiwi perspective, this just means they're one step closer to (hopefully) touring New Zealand before or after the Aussie dates. *fingers crossed*

I am wondering a bit about why the shows in Sydney and Melbourne are on school nights (Monday and Wednesday respectively) :P

It's ANNOYING as I know I can't take time off work to line up all day, or to fly down to Melb to see them.

I was never good at looking on the bright side.

Thank you,you have made my weekend!!!
The election has me all not knowing what to think and the return of U2 to Oz gives me some stability!
U2 is a constant in a world of variables!!
Dec 1 Melbourne and Dec 8 Brisbane roll on!!

You know what's awesome? I used my savings for U2 in North America this summer to buy myself a trip to Australia for my birthday in December.

Boy did I luck out *jig*

The live nation website is saying seating will start at $39 but I've no idea how far back they mean...

Yeah, I got the impression that was "limited view" seating (or possibly the D-reserve). Although I'll be very happy if the closer seats are that cheap :D

lol "limited view". I only want seats because my bro doesn't want to camp out (and to be honest, my friend and I did it last time. It was hot and sticky and fun for about 12 hrs and then not so fun) but if GA are going to be cheaper than a decent seat, we might be persuaded to go GA.

God, I remember the day I lined up at Olympic Park - it was one of the hottest days EVER and we were sitting in the sun for hours and hours on end in that horrid concrete prison with no breeze.

But SO worth it as I was mere metres fromt the stage :)

God, my friend and I were out there for two days. We got so cranky with eachother because we were the only two for like 12 hours. I think we also had a bean bag race at about 3am or something.

I got propositioned by one of the stadium security guards aswell. Good times, good times. NOT.

The end result was worth it but just like bloodfever I don't know if I have it in me this time.
