I just spent five minutes trying to eloquently explain my newfound distaste for comedy-rock but then I realized I'm just a joyless bastard.

Enjoy the shows everybody!

I also dislike comedy rock. Flight of the Conchords are a rare exception.

Don't know if it's the same in Australia, but Arj Barker is the opening act for the NZ tour.

Stefan Beck said on the 10th Apr, 2012

Since he seems to be out here every couple of months I'd be suprised if he wasn't supporting this leg as well.

I think the Plenary is at the Melbourne Exhibition Centre. I want to know if it's 18 or all ages, cos I'd like to take my sister :/

MorningAfterboy

MorningAfterboy said on the 10th Apr, 2012

Of course it'll be all ages.

Frontier Pre sale 4pm this Thursday 12th. All shows except Opera House the password is on the email Opera House link - http://www.sydneyoperahouse.com/priority/flight_of_the_conchords.aspx

Bit weak to have all tckets the same price. Would have totally grabbed a cheap seat at SOH, even if it was only 10-15 bucks cheaper.

Lucan

Lucan said on the 10th Apr, 2012

IN for The Plenary show.

Lots of free days around the Melbourne date to schedule for extra shows too.

.

I've got the password as ******** for the Brisbane show????

Edit: The passwords seem to be individual. You will have to sign up to Frontier to get yours

Sarcasm, I'd take your password down as that will be your individual password.

Braveheart81

Braveheart81 said on the 10th Apr, 2012

Frontier Touring presale passwords are unique to you. If you search back through your emails you might notice that your password is always the same for a Frontier event.

my bad! thanks guys. but i can't imagine it being that important right? if someone else uses my password that shouldn't stop me from accessing it........

Blasted

Blasted said on the 10th Apr, 2012

Nah you should be right. No one on here is that much of a bastard. If they are then I'm in the same boat as I had my password up on here as well.

I got row A right up the back area though and decided I would try Tuesday for a better spot

sarcasm_mister

sarcasm_mister said on the 12th Apr, 2012

single seats keep popping up on the SOH website. but no chances of 2 side by side. general sale it is!

Lucan

Lucan said on the 12th Apr, 2012

Row Z for Melbourne. Had to get 4 so grabbed those rather than risking getting nothing on Tuesday,

* despite there obviously being dates reserved for extra shows.

oldgregg

oldgregg said on the 12th Apr, 2012

mrs Gregg could only get row x so I'm trying general sale too. they must of only had shut tickets in the presale. I decided to not correct shut because it seemed fitting.

Quicky

Quicky said on the 12th Apr, 2012

Got row S-24-25 in stalls :) super excited to see these guys!

It was one of my mates but he was dead set trying for 1/2 an hour and he had the option of circle seats like everyone else here so I guess he got lucky!

Scooter mcgavin

Scooter mcgavin said on the 16th Apr, 2012

Scooter mcgavin

Scooter mcgavin said on the 16th Apr, 2012

Clearly there were....Too many dicks on the dancefloor, in this case the dancefloor being ticketmaster and the dicks being scalpers

sarcasm_mister

sarcasm_mister said on the 16th Apr, 2012

once again brutally assaulted by SOH website. fingers crossed for second show.

shazie

shazie said on the 16th Apr, 2012

Got good tickets for him for the Gong show, decent recovery.

tauiwi

tauiwi said on the 16th Apr, 2012

Shattered. I should get precedence for actually being a kiwi. BTW only single-tickets are left.

My 2nd show fingers, toes, and even balls, are crossed.

Scooter mcgavin

Scooter mcgavin said on the 16th Apr, 2012

Why couldn't our shitty cuz Geelong get a gig if the Gong and Newcastle both get gigs too

There will definately be a 2nd show for Melbourne

oldgregg

oldgregg said on the 16th Apr, 2012

ticketmaster is a chode though.

oldgregg

oldgregg said on the 16th Apr, 2012

they should call it chodemaster.

Faris

Faris said on the 16th Apr, 2012

Faris

Faris said on the 16th Apr, 2012

Scooter mcgavin

Scooter mcgavin said on the 16th Apr, 2012



I know newcastle is shit but it is only 2 hours lol you can spend that long in Sydney Peak Hour

Braveheart81

Braveheart81 said on the 16th Apr, 2012



Yes, but if you're driving to Newcastle on a Tuesday evening it's going to take you longer than 2 hours.

MorningAfterboy

MorningAfterboy said on the 17th Apr, 2012



Come down to Wollongong bro, we'll have a gay old time.

Lucan

Lucan said on the 17th Apr, 2012

Plenary has Melissa Etheridge booked for the 15th. Only leaves the Monday and Tuesday available for a 2nd show before they need to shoot over to Perth.

sarcasm_mister

sarcasm_mister said on the 17th Apr, 2012



wasn't aware ethnics were allowed in the Gong?

Braveheart81

Braveheart81 said on the 17th Apr, 2012

If you're Italian it's alright.

The Gong has lots of Italians.

MorningAfterboy

MorningAfterboy said on the 17th Apr, 2012

This is true.

And hey, we're letting 2 Kiwis in - you'll be fine!

tauiwi

tauiwi said on the 17th Apr, 2012



Isn't that place full of 'Bros? It will feel like a Kiwi homecoming. Or a "bro"mecoming

sarcasm_mister

sarcasm_mister said on the 17th Apr, 2012

but i was under the impression that successful kiwis are called Australian.

Hey Perth,

I'll trade you Brisbane's Radiohead concert for you to move your second FOTC show to Sydney.

Good deal huh?

Scooter mcgavin

Scooter mcgavin said on the 26th Apr, 2012

Damn you getting better seats than me, I just took the presale section G like a fool.

I will probably get depressed and sell them at cost on Ebay and then regret it and buy worse tickets at 3 times the price

Does anyone know who is supporting this tour, Is it Arj Barker like in NZ?

Quicky

Quicky said on the 26th Jun, 2012

I'm assuming he's doing a support slot at all shows. Fingers crossed, I've wanted to see him live for a fair while and I'll settle for a support slot :D
