U2 on Ethiad Stadium won't be an ideal preparation for the upcoming AFL season. I suppose they'll have a couple of months to improve the turf afterwards.

Decided against buying a ticket to $oundwave this year. Will do Gaslight Anthem & Ataris sideshows instead.

I cannot wait to see them. Definately my favorite live act that I've seen. I would probably pay $100 to see them, yet I cannot comprehend $159 for pre-sale Soundwave. I'm going to pray for some good sideshows

Both those bands aren't playing Soundwave I don't think...

Although agreed on the Soundwave ticket prices, I swear that they used to be a lot cheaper.

Yeah they're not playing Soundwave. I swear in the first and second years pre sale were about $110 and full price $130
