Got to see the best Aussie band ROCKING THE SHIT out of Acer Arena last night, everyone was on fire, Charley fits in so well, Jimmy is looking fitter than ever and sounding sen-fucking-sational, and after seeing the whole show from my roaming patrol I got to go backstage and work the aftershow and meet the band! Best shift I have ever worked in Security? You bet ya life! Bring on tonight at Tuesday at the SEC, probably be on the stage barrier for that one
Talk about having a great job! Congratulations. I saw the band at the first show at Newcastle and the other night at Coffs Harbour. It goes without saying the shows were great. Newcastle was a bit crowded, pretty well chocka block wherever you were. Coffs Harbour was under a big tent at the hockey fields just out of town. I thought it was better than Newcastle, but never went for as long i think. They had big screens around the place projecting the show all around. They had some pretty serious looking video cameras filming the show, so lets just hope there is a new DVD or 2 on the way!!!!
There were buses to and from the venue back to town but it was around an hour after the show before i could get one with so many people. The only complaint i had was that they were charging $8.00 and $10.00 for 1 can of beer, depending on what you were drinking. I don't know why organisers need to charge that much.
It seems in the merchandise department, there appears to be amongst the T shirts one specifically for each venue plus the normal varied standard ones. I've got a Newcastle and Coffs Harbour one so far.
I'm off again to see them again next Tuesday at the Sydney Entertainment Centre. Be a quite night with work the following day. Will put a few photos up when i sort through them from Coffs. Peter.
Well I was there both nights and asked every security guard do you know my friend Juddster. They said whats his proper name and me being me could not remember. Anyway you were'nt backstage Thursday night because we didnt see you or you didnt come say hello (naughty Juddster)Was pretty special being back there wasnt it? Didnt see many people at either concert that we knew, Wednesday night Razzi, Wombie, Nicky and Dazza from Melb. and Thursday night just Wombie and Nicky. Will do some photos and report soon. Yes it was a great night Juddster.
Yeah I did backstage Wed night. Thursday night I did the bar in the foyer after the show, and most of the guards would not know me, even though it is my company that does Acer, we are a Newcastle based company and most of the guys we use at Acer are the Sydney based Lebanese boys, I am one of the Newcastle boys.
