  1. Happy 12th Ahmet Tribute / Celebration Day! Crikey, that's 1/5 of my life ago 😲 - where did that go? Watching again 😁
  2. Happy 11 years gone everybody! Time sure flies. As is my custom, I watched the Celebration Day DVD last night. (I know there's been a thread in the Master Forum for the last couple of months about the relative merits of the concert but I'm just reminiscing on it's anniversary)
  3. I've just come back from seeing this years edition of CCEntertainment's Whole Lotta Love show. It'd be at least the sixth time I've seen it and it was easily the best so far. Anybody who loves the music and is in or around Sydney next weekend - seriously, do yourself a favour. This is a superb show! (And I've had the good fortune of seeing Robert Plant and JBLZE already this year). There are still tickets for the State Theatre on Saturday. It was all great but The Battle of Evermore moving into Kashmir was next level!
  4. Cheers luvlz2 One week til I see them in Sydney!
  5. Got me (But I believe he's playing Hammersmith with BCC at I type )
  6. http://www.jasonbonham.net/blog/2017/11/6/jblze-australianew-zealand-2018
  7. Bugger! No word yet from Ticketmaster, even though it seems it was announced 2 days ago. Actually not holding my breath - he was to tour here in 2012 (and I had a ticket then too) and it was cancelled without rescheduling "due to unforseen circumstances". Leaves me just with the Foo Fighters that weekend... I'll live
  8. Nah, not having a go Xolo1974. That's the beauty of opinions - everyone's is different and valid. I had determined that those prices are acceptable to me (my point) - I can't make that decision for anybody else. The "sad" comment was referring to on principle you wouldn't pay that much for a such a show, now matter how good it might be. The $45 tribute band I expect was a great night. I've seen such bands too but I'm expecting that the JBLZE production (and staging costs, no doubt) will be at another level - I'll let you know in 5 weeks.
  9. Dear mods Just wondering why it was thought better to move this thread to 'News', which it really isn't?
  10. Kind of sad. Really what anybody would pay indicates the value of that experience to them. You previously thought this was "value". That's a pub tribute band with no "connection"! There is an Australian set-up, CCEntertainment, which does an annual 'Led Zeppelin Celebration' called 'Whole Lotta Love' - 4 alternating vocalists, 9 piece band, generally filling smaller theatres. Don't try to act as Led Zeppelin. Musically superb. I think last time I saw them it was about $70AUD. Easily worth double that. I'm not anti pubs. Amongst the best shows I saw this year were free in pubs or $15-20AUD in small rooms. I also paid the most I ever have for a concert ticket (last week in a 12000 seat arena). $406AUD for a pommy bass player playing tunes from his earlier bands - and well and truly got my money's worth. I'd have to dig back to Queen in 1976 or the O2 Arena 10/12/2007 show (which to attend, cost me nearly 10x the amount last week) for a show which I'd say might have been"better". Needless to say, I'm looking forward to JBLZE in Sydney, am OK with the price and don't care whose not there!
  11. As you also said on the Australian fans page... If he's getting this sort of message from his homeland, why would he bother?
  12. Happy 10th anniversary Ahmet Tribute! (I've waited and waited... it's now 2pm here but the rest of the world's coming around. And I do know it's still 15 hours or so til the time!) I've Celebration Day-ed by having it on in the car at midnight, coming home from a show, watching the DVD and wearing my t-shirt playing guitar in the band at church this morning
  13. Xolo1974, Jason's show is also in Perth on 30 Jan. Will be pretty special, I reckon.
  14. Hey zeppatic. I'll be in Sydney for both JBLZE and RP (Tues show).
  15. BIG bump! Who's still around? Been busy this week - and it's only Wednesday! Have got myself tix for Jason's Led Zep Experience at the State Theatre in Jan and Robert + SSS at the SOH in March Two out of four ain't bad, merely months after the 10th anniversary... Twilight zone thing is (even though they were pick a section or price category, not specific seat) they're the same row number and seat numbers differ by just one.
  16. Another year! Per tradition (well, at least since year 5) I've put C' Day DVD on and relived the night. My other enjoyable LZ experience this year (utilizing the USB audio input on my upgraded vehicle and having loaded a "high rotation" drive) was twice on long trips listening to the studio tracks in order from GTBT to I'm Gonna Crawl. Very rewarding!
  17. Anybody else going to see Robert Plant / SSS shows? Taking my 13y.o. to the Sydney Ent Cent on March 28. (And he's coming to Deep Purple next week - wish my parent's had been like that!)
  18. Wishing all in our land, off to see Celebration Day in 6-7 hours time, a most wonderful evening
  19. Hey weird, I had this too just now! With the Django start from LFNIP version. Seeing Joe in Sydney in 3 weeks. Other than that I've been stuck on Celebration Day for 2 days Anybody notice that that song (as well as not being played in the O2 concert) doesn't appear anywhere on the 2003 DVD?
  20. What Reggie said. Just note that this is a BIG country (similar area to USA but with 1/15 the population - more than half of which live within a 60-odd mile radius of either Sydney or Melbourne). Flying from Sydney to Perth, on the west coast is 5 hours and Darwin in the far north is 4 hours. Like the United States there's much varied terrain. We've got desert wilderness, lush tropics, rural and vineyard areas, many variants of spectacularly scenic coastines and mountains, even alpine areas. And the beaches. The top of Australia sits well into the tropics though and our southern cities don't have winter ice and snow. As well as the sharks we've got a range of deadly snakes, spiders and sea-creatures but combined there would only be a handful of fatalities per year. Many countries would have far more critter-related deaths than here. Nobody worries much about it. Post again if you decide to come and when you know more about where, how long and what sort of things you want to see. I'm sure you'll get plently from people on here including local-knowledge suggestions which could make it a more memorable trip than the average tourist - but as Reggie said have a look at the Facebook on travel sites for ideas.
  21. Hey stz - just bought my ticket for Celebration Day at Tuggerah! https://www.eventcin...web_moviedetail
  22. First international touring band - Queen, 1976 Hordern Pavillion, Sydney (age 17) Prior to that, a number of Australian 70's rock bands at various all-ages events, including AC/DC immediately pre- then just post-Bon Scott joining, Stevie Wright, who had been the singer for the Easybeats and Buster Brown, some members of which moved on to Rose Tattoo. Others probably only Aussies of that era would know: Skyhooks, Hush, Madderlake, Capt Matchbox...
