Saw the band's final Great Circle Tour show on Friday night. I knew they were good live but I was blown away by how tight they were and the presence they had on stage (particularly Peter who is ageless it seems). Jim was still seated with his injury - very amusing when they went off for the encore and he just sat there in the dark while we all chanted his name :D

A fantastic vibe in the crowd (was nice to be one of the younger fans in the audience for a change!) with many sing-a-longs. The setlist was as good as I could have hoped for as a casual fan, only song I didn't hear that I would have like to was Dreamworld.


Setlist:

Redneck Wonderland
Read About It
Lucky Country
Warakurna
Hercules
Truganini
Put Down That Weapon
Stand in Line
Short Memory
When the Generals Talk
Who Can Stand in the Way (with Charlie McMahon on didgeridoo)
Treaty (Yothu Yindi cover) (with Yirrmal)
US Forces
Kosciusko
Only the Strong
The Dead Heart (with Charlie McMahon on didgeridoo)
Beds Are Burning
Don't Wanna Be the One
Blue Sky Mine
King of the Mountain

Encore:
Wedding Cake Island
Power and the Passion
Forgotten Years

Encore 2:
Best of Both Worlds

Nice set! Glad you enjoyed.

These guys really bought it on this tour. Like 'sleep said back in one of the first posts in this thread, "The Oils are back and don't we need them now".

Great tour by a great and important band.

I could do with perhaps a bit more Earth and Sun and Moon, which to my admittedly singular thinking is a stunning ecopop record. But I'm physically jealous nonetheless.

Never get much press over here in the UK, and are sadly considered One Hit Wonders for Beds Are Burning. Criminal that their catalogue is so underappreciated.

Saw them in '93 on the Earth & Sun & Moon tour in Birmingham and was blown away - Rob Hirst still one of the great drummers.

Wish I'd seen them in 1990 when Hunters & Collectors supported them.

Didn't make either London show this time around due to post Vedder empty wallet syndrome. Gutted to miss out.

Hopefully there'll be a live album/dvd released.

On a side note - has anyone found a *cough* friendly download source for the Full Tank remastered albums anywhere?

A recent facebook post by the band said they were going to do one/both of these with the Sydney Domain shows :hooray:
