Re: Lou Reed: Berlin in Sydney new [re: RabbitFighter]  

Bastards. That can't happen here - there's no room at the State Theatre to do anything like that. Funnily enough it's a bit rainy here in Sydney this morning - but all Aussie city streets have awnings which mainly protect you from the sun, but are also good for keeping the rain off.

I was 3rd in the queue (the guy in front of me was waiting to get 9 tickets for some classical bollocks) and there was another guy behind me. Then this young guy comes up (John Cale shades, iPod, VU-chic clothes) and asks "Are you queuing for tickets for Leo Sayer?"

"No", we tell him, "Lou Reed."

"Oh, good"
he says.

Re: Lou Reed: Berlin in Sydney new [re: ziggfried]  

Since this has been sitting here a while uncorrected, here's at least a little help:

<<Sydney, St.Ann's Warehouse (December 14 -17)>>

This is Brooklyn, not Australia. Right now, sold out.

Sydney, St. Ann's Warehouse (January 18-20)>>

I'll take your word for it, but judging from the errors above, this probably is at some place other than St. Ann's, and maybe some place other than Sydney. Wherever it is, it's not on Lou's site, nor Pollstar.

FYI, for latecomers, or those who only know about Ramona, Leon, and the Outside era, Bowie also played St. Ann's in 2002, and it's the first time he broke out Bewlay where it mattered. And there was even a real audience.

That came from a badly worded website. The concert is being organised in conjunction with St. Ann's warehouse in NY, but all of the Sydney dates (18 Jan - 20 Jan) are at the State Theatre in King Street (where I bought the ticket two days ago).

Re: Lou Reed: Berlin in Sydney new [re: ziggfried]  

If anyone’s interested Thursday night’s show at St Ann’s Warehouse is available over at dime right now. I acquired it last night but haven’t had the chance to listen to it yet. However there’s a review of that very show over at Rolling Stone.

One of the guys on another board that I post at posted this on Sunday (NY time - so he must be talking about Saturday):

“Yesterday I attended a matinee show here in NYC which was added (the four night run at St Ann's Warehouse sold out a long time ago) for the express purpose of a DVD shoot. The house was packed, a few celebs were in attendance (Michel Gondry, Jim Thirlwell, Artie Bucco from the Sopranos, and oh yeah Bono - and they were merely the ones I happened to spot in passing), and the gig was astoundingly good. Lou was in true Lou form, Steve Hunter on guitar, Fernando Saunders AND Rob Wasserman both on bass, Antony and Sharon Jones on backup vox, Bob Ezrin jumping up and down like a madman - what's not to like?”

Didn't any TW’ers go to see it?

Re: Lou Reed: Berlin in Sydney new [re: ziggfried]  

By all accounts (and I've read two so far - one personal and one in the paper) last night's festival debut performance was a thing of wonder.

In 36 hours I'll be watching the final performance. Can't wait.

Origins, yes. But he lived and is buried in Perth. It's good to see someone who knows their Bon Scott trivia, though. He was a great talent.

Re: Problem Child new [re: ghostlove]  

My son goes to Ashfield Boys High - the school that the Young brothers attended and the school that gave Angus his school uniform.

I saw AC/DC with Bon Scott twice in the 70s. Once at Middlesbrough Town Hall (on what was, I think, their first tour) and then at Wembley Stadium supporting The Who in 79).

Have you read Highway to Hell: The Life and Times of "AC/DC" Legend Bon Scott? Great book. I even know someone who knows the author. Touched by greatness.
