Well, you guys are making me feel a little better.

I've only ever seen PJ in Brisbane, getting most shows from 98-2009. EV on both tours at QPAC. some great fan club seats for one of them.

The BDO for the LB tour just did not interest me. I felt too old for that - even back then.

I'm pumped for the new album and tour, but Wednesday night, down the coast and for $300 a pop? Work / family and finances just do not stretch that far.

I'm sure they'll be great and I know the board will be represented at the show, so I can get that ambivalent take on it.

I think I'll just pre-order the red vinyl, follow the setlists online and hunt for HQ proshot footage.


I've made every tour since 95 and been all over the country except Perth. But honestly $300 a pop is a tad rich.
Plus to be honest this PJ Premium seating thing getting 10% of tickets is such a wank. Really feels the 10 club and band are a long way from where they started.
But hey, who doesn't like money.
I've been trying to decide if I should alter my order, it's funny all the money spent over the years and $300 for a ticket really sticks in the craw.
And yeah Wednesday on the Gold Coast is just shit. I enjoyed the Big Day Out show but it was still a long way from Entertainment Centre shows.
I can't see them doing multiple shows on the Gold Coast as I just don't think it'll sell out.
Sydney and Melbourne far more likely.

I've registered for the GC show, which would be my eighth PJ gig if I'm lucky enough to get a ticket. ;)

Last saw them on the BDO tour at that venue (2014 seems like a fucking long time ago!), wouldn't be my pick for a SEQ PJ show but whatever.

If the ticket price does turn out to be $300 then I don't think I'll be seeing multiple shows this tour.

I wish there were more shows scattered around the country so there wasn't such demand. 10 years without a show and it's an over priced stadium. sigh

Spot on.

Also, imagine a Pearl Jam tour of Australia falling right after a Trump election win. :poke:

Always glad to witness a zeb appearance!

Are you seeing QOTSA on this tour?

They were superb in Adelaide.

Heya Spen, nice to see you too.

Glad to hear you had a blast at the Adelaide show. I have tickets for both Queens nights in Brisbane and am very likely to hit the Gold Coast mini-festival as well.

It is going to be a gruelling week:

21/2 Mogwai
23/2 Dinosaur Jr
24/2 Queens
25/2 Queens
26/2 Queens
28/2 The National / Fleet Foxes

Locked in for The Beths, MJ Lenderman, Boris, Wilco, Tropical Fuck Storm and Nick Cave with Colin Greenwood further down the calendar too.

Tickets confirmed this morning.
Gold Circle Front Standing.
I am sure I'll get over the cost when I get to take my youngest daughter to see the band I grew up with.

Must say the tickets seem to be selling well.
Had to get 4 x tickets for a friend, was 8000 in queue and when got in the only place I could get four together was GA standing.
At least with only 3 days between Gold Coast and Melbourne I think it's safe to say there won't be two shows on the Gold Coast.
