Just got home from the Killers.

 

Boys night out and some male bonding for my 19 year old son and me.

 

Absolutely brilliant. I really enjoy their music and Brandon Flowers is a great showman.

 

Let downs were: the support act - yawn, the tanked up tw*t making a nuisance of himself near us, TSB Arena - rubbish acoustics.

Totally agree The Killers killed it. But the acoustics. I don’t know how bands can even bring themselves to perform there. We really need a good venue designed for music.

Been to far too many concerts to list, a bit an an eclectic list of overseas performers I've seen (in no particular order) include:

 

B52's, Kiss, David Bowie, Eurythmics, Motorhead (met Lemmy and Wurzel), Berlin, Uriah Heep, Tina Turner, Dire Straits, Fleetwood Mac, Elton John, Neil Young, Simon and Garfunkel, Willie Nelson, UB40 (Samoa, got to be backstage), Iron Maiden, Ace Frehley, Alice Cooper...the list goes on.

 

The big problem in Wellington is a lack of decent venues:
- Valhalla is quite small
- San Fran is a good mid-sized venue
- James Cabaret is gone (shame)
- Bodega is gone (shame)
- St James Theatre is a good mid-large size venue but is very heavily booked for events other than concerts
- TSB arena is a good larger venue but if the sound tech isn't on their game it develops an irritating shriek
- Westpac Stadium great large venue (with a decent sound set up) but can't be used much (thanks Thorndon residents)

 

More recently I've been doing a bit of roadie work to help some friends out so have got to be backstage for Fuel, P.O.D. and will also be helping out at the upcoming Seether concert.

Simple Plan - Power Station. 

 

Wanted to love it, am a reasonable fan though I haven't heard much of their latest album and this tour was promoting that. I was disappointed that after taking 16 years to get here they didn't do more older stuff. They were on stage for around 1 hour and 40 minutes which is reasonable for what I paid.

 

Glad I went, probably wouldn't go again unless I was sure their set would include considerably more older music.

Saw them in ChCh on Tuesday night. Fantastic show, like, really, wow.

 

But yes, the acoustics. The arena is just so tinny with so much high end - it just buried the vocals for me.
