I second berlinchair101's sentiments. FUCK YEAH! indeed. I saw him in 2007 and the show was epic. Can't wait for this.

Admittedly, saw him with Linkin Park. Odd choice for support, amazing none the less.

He was great at the Enmore.

Any guesses as to ticket prices?

Woah. A lot of Audioslave. Not so much Soundgarden. Where's Part of Me and Scream? And the Bond one?

berlinchair101

berlinchair101 said on the 26th May, 2011

I think a lot of SG's songs don't sit as nicely acousticly.

or maybe he knows he's going to be belting out the Soundgarden ones a lot soon so he is playing his others.

Either way that's a beastly set.

Hahaha, nothing off his last two solo albums. Awesome.

berlinchair101 said on the 26th May, 2011

Hey played Scream in Seattle. But he also played A Day in the Life, Comfortably Numb and Man of Golden Words so you couldn't really complain ha ha.

Trust me its nothing special saw him at download two years ago and all i could think about was how good soundgarden were. He destroyed their music on stage.

I assume you have to win a competition or something?

grattan said on the 4th Oct, 2011

Nah, just queue up with 300 other fanatics in a casino for a few hours and that's that.

Mmm, pass. Don't like being at Star City at the best of times.

The rock lily is in the worst part of the casino though; right next to the elderly Asian businessman on the cheap auto-roulette tables. Just feels fucking uncomfortable being there.

I really want to go but I hate Star City and I have a 21st that night. Bother.

how does this rock lilly concept work...... just get there at 5pm, get in, get pass outs and come back for bands?

is there guestlist if you rsvp to fb events?

or is it hours of standing around?

i think it depends on how pack it is... i went to the free gyroscope show there on Thursday and you could walk in walk out whenever you want(but it wasn't very busy)... but i think bigger acts have wrists bands
