Australian Tours

There have been a ton of great bands touring Australia lately, particularly in the Heavy Metal genre. I know many of the aussies on this forum went to see Ratt and Winger a few weeks back. Those are just two of the great bands that have come to our shores this year. I think many bands are starting to realise that they do have quite a solid and dedicated fan base in Australia, and we would love to see more of it. A few of the upcoming tours for early '08 that I know of include:

 

Confirmed

Bon Jovi

W.A.S.P.

The Poor (Supporting W.A.S.P.)

Helloween

Black Majesty (Supporting Helloween)

Iron Maiden

Ozzy Osbourne

Saxon (cancelled but will re-schedule)

Toto

HIM

Nightwish

Black Rebel Motorcycle Club

Budgie

Velvet Revolver

Dream Theatre

Hardcore Superstar

 

Rumours

AC/DC

Baby Animals

Extreme

 

AND Jeff Scott Soto needs to re-schedule...

 

 

Anyone else?? Any other likely true-mours??

 

And a question for the aussies on this forum. Which artists/bands would you like to see tour Australia in the near future. For me it would be without a doubt - Whitesnake and John Waite. I would also love for Edguy to come back...they said they would so they have to.

What, didn't you dig The Poor's WHO CARES? That's a fantastic old-school hard rock record! It was a very nice welcome surprise when it came out in the ultra-dull mid 90s. It's worth the price just for the track "More Wine Waiter Please" :beerbang:

I hated The Poor too. :( I recall it being very average to these ears.

Highly average, one of the worst Aussie releases. I stand by it. Ive owned it, ive tried to enjoy. Failed. Average.

What are you doing on the net at midnight on a Saturday night? We both suck.

I'm glad one of us is out there fighting for our right to party. There is a pug sitting on the floor looking up at me - now it's standing up on two feet leaning on me, telling me with it's face it wants to sit on my lap. I told him I have to wrap presents but he doesn't seem to understand. I wonder if it's because he's so small. He just tried to jump up on me now. He's getting a little restless. He was just there for the last hour as I replied to threads here. He sure is cute, though.

Is there any real possibility of any of these - except maybe the Poison and Warrant rumours I did hear, and who knows with Def Lep - I guess they could come here. But is there really any chance of Danger Danger or Trixter, or even Europe (not that I'd be TOO Interested these days) hitting these shores??

    • Battlegod Productions. Although I ordered directly from the bands website...The band messsaged to say they were waiting for payment to clear after it was received, then messaged to say they had received payment about 2 weeks later...still waiting on it actually being sent...ah well
    • That's actually a pretty cool song. Better than his previous bands for sure. I gotta agree with Auslander, though. Something a bit off-putting about those backing vocals. Some are nice, but particularly the ones at the start of the chorus are, as I said, "off-putting."  I've had lukewarm reactions to backing vocals in the past, though, and sometimes I get past it. Hopefully this is one of those occasions?
    • I have been summoned. #1 - plods along and goes absolutely nowhere. Sorry, no cup of seme- uh, tea. #2 - certainly a bit more lively that the first one. Not bad, but it's very, very basic stuff. Okay tune. #3 - yeah, sadly just not my thing. As weak as, if not weaker than the first track.  Sorry cob, I think it's going to have to be a pass from me.  
    • Yeah, I do agree and I don't want people to get me wrong. I'm not a defund the police type or anything like that. My respect for the police is at the lowest it has been in my entire life, but I hope it is something that can be restored in time... though the longer this all goes on, the less hope I have at all for a future worth looking forward to. But that's another story.  I do have some regard for police officers "just following orders" but I've seen and heard way too much to have too much sympathy. And I agree that it is the policy makers that I despise most of all, but I'd have liked to have seen some sort of resistance from the police in all of this. It's been my biggest issue through the whole thing. In the media, government and the police force, there are so few voices (and definitely no significant voices) opposing the ridiculous nature of what has happened over the last two years and is still ongoing.  I don't understand it all, but are the police part of the government, or is there some separation there? If you're given absolutely absurd rules to enforce, I would like to see opposition to it. And as I do with everything, I think what I would do in their situation. If I was a police officer, and I had a family to feed, what would I do? Would I stand outside a grocery store and fine a couple who removed their masks as they walked out the store? Sure as all fuckery, I would not. I've been asked by several officers throughout the last couple of years to put my mask on before a fine was issued, so I'm 100%, definitely not just painting all police with the same brush. I know there's exceptions to every rule. But for any officer who's first instinct was to fine for mask breaches, or insane area restrictions or any of the entirely petty, pathetic laws we've had to endure over the last couple of years, for them I have no respect whatsoever. Even if you're put in the terrible situation they've been put in, there's still a way you can handle it, and a lot of the ways I've seen and heard it handled is not something I can respect.  Anyway, I watched a cool video today. It's as if this guy took every thought I've had on the whole pandemic and said it in proper, intelligent words. If I wasn't as dumb as a wooden post these are the words I'd be saying-  
    • With a rack like that, I'm sure she is.
    • Didn't see anything on this and 1 the new songs are real nice and 2 the Dare Force connection and Johnny's Minnesotian presence just makes it all to epic! His debut solo release Truth or Dare is out now and the 3 video tracks are really good, heck @Geoff my even like it.   I am partial to #2 atm. https://www.facebook.com/JohnnyONeilOfficial https://www.johnnyoneil.com/      
    • I thought of this one today for some reason.  I'm sure everyone here is familiar with "Talking Heads - Psycho Killer" from '77, a very strange track in it's own right, but does anyone here remember the 1980 parody track "Psycho Chicken" by "The Fools"?      
    • That's more like it mate. Your best one so far. Keep it up.
