Post by munch » 21 Jul 2015, 02:24

I noticed no one has set this one up.

This is the gig I'm going to. I'd love to meet anyone else on the forum going? Could meet before.. after...
Anyway.
Also you know that plastic icecream cone I have?

You can buy them (Without the face of course) at The Reject Shop in Perth. I may bring mine, not sure yet. Maybe not caus it's more to carry :D


But yeah, anyone who wants to meet! Let's do it! I was thinking of arriving at the door at like lunch time and just sitting there for hours.... well I got nuthin better to do.

Hi everyone,

I've got a general admission ticket to the show as was/am going to line up early to get a great spot. Though I have no idea when to do this, I was just going go to Perth sometime in the morning and hang around Perth during the day and check out Perth Arena every 1/2 hour or so to see if anyones lining up. If so I was going to join the queue. This is really the first time I've gone to a concert by myself, couldn't find anyone interested in lining up. I would be happy meeting with anyone else going early.

Regards,
Michael

Personally I was planning on turning up around a quarter to 4. I can't get there any earlier so I hope that's enough for me to be able to get near the front...

I'll be getting there at around 5ish! Have uni all day :( Saw blur at splendour though so I can't complain if I'm not at the front as I am so so lucky to be able to see blur twice (as well has having seen Damons's solo show and gorillaz)!!

I think you'll be fine Eloise; I got to the arctic monkeys concert around 20 minutes before the doors opened and I was about three rows from the front (and I have a feeling that the amount of teenagers would be greater at arctic monkeys, maybe meaning the crowd were more likely to be lining up early)

That's amazing, you're so lucky!

Ahh cool, thanks for letting me know! My friend was at that gig and somehow pushed her way to the front without even having to arrive early at all, so I'm hoping it's a similar situation tonight haha.

If the Melbourne gig was anything to go by, the good peeps of Perth are in for one helluva show...

...plenty of water-anointing & hi-fives from Damon to us lucky duckies up front; signature split jumps, backward roll & face-pulling from Graham; sterling stick work from the irrepressible Dave & even Alex 'dacked up' for the occasion, ditching the dodgy shorts of fashion crimes past...

Ridiculously grateful that the boys came to play upside down "on this [not so] little island"...just don't leave it so long between drinks next time, lads! ;)

Managed to be in the very front and practically centre. How good was it!!!! Felt sorry for but also laughed at Alex when Damon knocked him over, what a character Damon is. Got to touch him a couple of times, once on his sweaty back and another we had a moment where I couldn't reach his hand so the rest of the crowd helped me whilst he leaned as far as forward he could until we made contact! Then he smiled knowingly as I gave him the thumbs up :D

Anyone on this speak to me at all? I spoke to a few mad fans. Didn't get any names but I was wearing the white blur shirt with the happy ice cream cone on it. And I am a female with a blonde fringe if that helps

I don't think we spoke which is a shame! I was also at the very front :D
