Almost a month ago, I went to Sydney as one of the longest-serving drones in our team left the company.
As is typical with these things, we had to do a braindump of this guy, as without is knowledge, the place would half fall apart. Was good to get back up to Sydney again, even if it meant that I saw nobody I wanted to, thanks to ghey schedules.
Anyhow, we get up there and settled on the Monday, finally get into the office (Jetstar: please get a fucking CLUE on how to check people in! Fucking cheapass budget airlines), and check in with everyone. Ben decides to have a look at Ticketmaster’s website for availability of tickets for Tool on the Wednesday — for no other reason than just for interest. Of course he didn’t expect to see much…
What he indeed found was two seats left, right near the front, in reserved seating!
Needless to say, we were quite wrapped with this, and snapped them straight up 🙂 Couple of hours later, we went to collect them, and then checked the website again, and the concert was sold out — LAST TICKETS!!!
The gig was mad… totally fucken awesome. Second time (thanks Kokman ;)) I’ve seen Tool and the first time I’ll remember them. The other time was a flash-in-the-pan gig called Alternative Nation, and I really don’t remember much from that. I do remember not being disappointed then either.
Anyhow, the rest of that week paled in comparison, mainly thanks to my stomach issues rearing their ugly heads, badly.
There’s no place like home… There’s no place like home… There’s no place like home…
