I know pearl jam can sell footy stadiums. But I'm really wrecking my brain how they think they're gonna sell 2 days in Sydney with the line up they've tossed up.
The last 2 dayer was a shambles with 2 for 1 tix in the end.
Maybe hold out if they're prob forced to do that again

Mbe for you, but it's not a bad first announcement at all. I know people who would be stoked to see all of the following, and I'd be keen to see about half. Thankfully these don't sell too well any more so I can wait until the second announcement before I decide whether to go.

Pearl Jam
Arcade Fire
Blur
Snoop Dogg aka Snoop Lion
Major Lazer
Flume
Tame Impala
DIIV
Mudhoney
The 1975

And that probably won't sell out. Senses Fail sold 70 presale tickets to their Unibar show on the weekend, and I don't think many more bought tickets at the door.

Adelaide just hates bands.(However La Dispute's show at Fowlers probably pulled close to 500, so maybe it's just Unibar. OR... maybe it's just Senses Fail.)
