    Hardcore Superstar - Have Mercy On Me

    He's a tradie. Does ok, but just a normal bread winner. He just likes the idea of getting to Vegas again. And in the end I'll be cool with that. If we end up in the US, I'll spend a few days with him and the boys in Vegas having fun, and when they leave I'll move on and spend another week and a half doing my own thing. Amazing that he'd want to fly 20 hours, spend a few days there, and then fly another 20 hours back...

    Dare - Out of the Silence II

    Cool. The reason I asked was that the majority of people now go to see him now to listen to him talk about physics about time, space and philosophy.

    Dare - Out of the Silence II

    Was watching a show on Brian Cox the other night. Freaked the hell out when I saw that he was in Dare, and also D:ream I've only ever known him as the astrophysicist. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Brian_Cox_(physicist)

    Let's end this now. There is no possible positive outcome for further discussion. FWIW,they're both painful for me compared to AFL.

    Hardcore Superstar - Have Mercy On Me

    haha, We had our honeymoon in Thailand 12 years ago. Going back because it was opportunistic and also because all the traveling we do (around 4 o 5 overseas trips annually) are either work related or pretty fast paced taking in the sights etc. Since we've been to Phuket before we're hoping it's forced relaxation to a degree. Also,we're staying in the same hotel we honeymooned in, which is kinda cool. Let me know how you found the Philippines. Some friends and I celebrate major birthdays with an OS trip which is next year. One of them is trying for vegas. I complained that he'd want a week there. He came back with "nah, a long weekend is enough" He missed the point. I wouldn't fly to LA for a week, let along a long weekend, so I'm looking for alternates.

    EUROPE - "Walk The Earth" (2017)

    Yeah, PIP the song is probably my favorite of theirs, so I was happy to hear that. I guess it's hard for them to go back and play a setlist they were playing 10 or 15 years ago (that time is probably smack bang in the timeframe when they were split up) Personally I would have loved to have heard about Joey playing solo stuff in a small pub the following night. that would have been killer.

    Hardcore Superstar - Have Mercy On Me

    We're just going to Phuket for a week. Couple of my kids will be there then also, but we'll mostly avoid them I've been a couple of times before so there is less need to get out and see everything. Forced sitting on the beach or by the pool. I travel a lot for work overseas, so this is the first really relaxing break for a while. Although I'll be looking at some work stuff in my time there anyway.Timing was that late last year Jetstar has a deal on which made it less than $300 return each, so we just picked a date. We're lucky as we are self employed we can travel when we like which we probably don't appreciate enough. I was actually talking about Philippines as an option for something next year and apparently there is a big crackdown on drugs there which is kinda dangerous. I don't watch the news anymore so I know little about that. usually a storm in a teacup though I find.

    EUROPE - "Walk The Earth" (2017)

    It was their first ever tour of Australia which is weird in itself. $100 is pretty steep but I guess normal as it ain't cheap to get over here. Anyway, it was a fairly basic show. Big backdrop curtain, and that was the only stage prop. All dressed in black, no wardrobe changes etc. Good long show overall. 2 x 1 hour sets and the venue enabled a good view from anywhere. Joey took time to walk through the crowd during Superstitious which I guess is appropriate in that song (not worried about crazy fans) A couple of crowd singalongs which weren't too long so that was ok Other than that they were a fairly basic set up "stripped down" if you like I kinda had warped expectations having seen the old Final Countdown etc film clips with fireworks etc As for the setlist Walk the Earth The Siege Rock the Night (With snippet of ”Whole Lotta Rosie” by AC/DC) Scream of Anger Danger on the Track Firebox Sign of the Times Vasastan Girl From Lebanon Open Your Heart War of Kings Heart of Stone Days of Rock 'n' Roll Superstitious Second Set Ready or Not Last Look at Eden Hole in My Pocket Seven Doors Hotel Carrie Turn to Dust Drum Solo Stormwind Prisoners in Paradise GTO Let the Good Times Rock Encore: Cherokee The Final Countdown Missing songs for me I'll Cry For You Just The Beginning - would have thought that this would have been the perfect song to end set 1... Halfway To Heaven Talk To Me On Broken Wings Always The Pretenders New Love In Town Bag Of Bones I know everyone has a different opinion, but I'm not sure the crowd as a whole really appreciated most of the newer stuff. They missed quite a few singles which was a bit weird given their first tour of Oz. (almost as weird a Cheap Trick not playing The Flame when I saw them) But overall it was a good show. I would have regretted not seeing it. Not as much as I regret missing the Dr Feelgood tour, but still regretted it I guess.

    Pop Evil - Waking Lions

    My picks off this album Be Legendary Waking Lions Color's Bleed God's Dam When We Were Young A Crime To Remember Rewind When listening, bring up the lyrics. One of the positive albums around, which I like.

    EUROPE - "Walk The Earth" (2017)

    But being so disinterested after a first listen just does yourself a disservice . Here are 2 recent cases in point. As I mentioned on the thread, I recently gave time to Adrenaline Mob. Off Omerta, the catchy songs came later, but I persisted with the earlier songs. After a few listens Undaunted got pretty catchy and I really like it now. Psychosane got a bit better but is still average for me. then there's the new Europe album. I saw them live tonight, and they played 2 songs I initially didn't like - Walk The Earth and GTO. Walk The Earth became a killer song after 4 or 5 listens, but I never really got GTO. Yet they played it as the 4th last song of the second set, so the band obviously thinks something of it. I had hoped that seeing it live would add to the song somehow but it was still crappy for me. How about HEAT? Did you like their new album instantly? From memory it took most here quite a few listens to get in to it. If one of your favorite bands releases a new album, do you give it more of a go than a band you don't know, or have gone off?

    EUROPE - "Walk The Earth" (2017)

    I've been thinking about this. It make all the Belly 2 Belly discussions we've had futile. Had I known that you needed to like the music on first listen I wouldn't have bothered. I get that there's an element of needing to hear as much as possible, and I wouldn't say it was lazy not to give some music a few listens before deciding, but I would say that in not doing so you're missing out as some of the songs that take a few listens turn out to be the best.

    May have been another thread.

    Black Stone Cherry - White Trash Millionaire

    When I listened to Folklore And Superstition I instantly liked the songs. So that takes that part out of the equation. I guess it's just different strokes for different folks. Was this a band you described as being like Saliva? That may make sense because I really dig Saliva.

    VEGA - Only Human

    I'm kinda the same, but to be fair I really haven't given them a fair go. Less keys would please me more, but that's just a personal preference. Agree with all the drum comments. Makes the songs sound a lot 'lighter'

    Black Stone Cherry - White Trash Millionaire

    I'm listening to an album I've had sitting for ages - Folklore And Superstition and I fucking love it. I've really been missing out. Just listed all their other albums to get based on the strength of this 2008 one. Hopefully they are as good. Shocked to see only a couple of general threads on them. Ima start with the new 2018 album Family Tree

    Adrenaline Mob

    Been listening to the first 2 albums today and they are really a hit and miss band for me. Songs are either not my cup of tea at all (this includes the first 2 songs on each album), or they are great. I'm able to pick 5 or 6 songs of each album which I really like, so that's good enough for me. Great to hear AJ hitting the drums again. I don't have the 2017 album, but I'll be picking that one up soon. Look forward to their Rebel Yell cover.
