    Kiss and Megadeth. Thought about Helloween but decided against it.

    Not doing Megadeth, even though the new track is awesome - seen 'em 5 times, don't need to travel again to see a weird looking Dave Mustaine be grumpy on stage for a couple of hours.

    Didn't do KISS.

    Did do Behemoth / Watain. Behemoth were amazing and somehow sounded good in the dungeon that is Fowlers. Watain unfortunately succumbed to the pain of "Bass, drums and droney vocals" that Fowlers is famous for.

    Looking forward to Helloween greatly.

    So I went to Sydney for KISS on Saturday and saw them again last night. Good on Saturday, excellent last night.

    Well I picked a good year to go to Wacken as a Maiden fan.

    They're playing Wacken? I can't remember the lineup.

    Did anyone go to Megadeth?

    I saw At The Gates last night. It was a super show.

    Saw Def Leppard last night. They're skipping Brisbane so I had to fly to Sydney to see them. A great show as always, although they cut three songs from their Japan set without replacing them.

    I saw them for the first time on Wednesday. Cool show. The sound guy must be deaf though, for it was overly loud. How loud were they in Sydney? Why didn't they play Brisbane?!

    No idea why they skipped Brisbane because their last show here was pretty full. Maybe it was a scheduling thing.

    Megadeth gig was good. Bodom had a better mix for the most part but both bands played solid sets.
    Alestorm with Lagerstein and Troldhaugen last night was excellent. So good to see Australian bands kill it live and win over the crowd.
    Next up I might check out Uncle Acid in a couple of weeks at the Corner.

    Three weeks away. That's my next one. I also grabbed tickets for The Tea Party with the Melbourne Symphony Orchestra next year. That will be amazing I'm sure.

    Picked up Midnight Oil tickets for Hanging Rock today. Have wanted to hit a gig there for ages and with John Butler supporting it should be bonza.

    I went to five gigs recently - Opeth, GNR, Springsteen x 2 and Twelve Foot Ninja. All good fun.

    I saw Meshuggah last weekend. As good as I remember them being last time for sure. I hear Entombed A.D. are touring too, I would love to check them out, last time I seen them would of been the late 90's

    I went to Adele a few weeks back. Very good, but not suited for a stadium.

    Not enough of a stage show?

    Glad to hear Meshuggah were good. I've only seen them once, at Soundwave, and they were great. I don't listen to them much, but was impressed.

    I saw Entombed a couple of times, in 1997 and in 2004. Good band! How many Entombed members are in the AD version?
