Was totally amazing, we were totally blessed to have have even met the band, my wife and I are still buzzing about the rest of the night.

The only downer of the evening is I had to tell my daughter she is no longer allowed to wear her Viva La Vida shirt we bought her in Berlin as she now has all four autographs on it and I would hate to have to put it through the wash. I tried to buy her a new one after the show but they only had XL left (not a good look for an 8 year old) :)

Luckily enough have a friend going tomorrow night who will be able to pick her up a replacement.
As a last resort, you could always buy something from their online store.

Oh yeah...that sucks. I still remember how amazingly excited I was that they played it on Wednesday. Since it came out, every time I listened to it I thought how cool it would be if they played it, but always thought it was too obscure for the mainstream fan. When I heard the first words of it come out of Chris' mouth, I screamed so loud (made so much more obvious because of the fact no one else did hahaha).

Improvement? They were better than last time?
Better than the Twisted Logic show. And I loved that tour too. But this....was something else.
Audience was totally into it as well (thank God). Chris said that we were the loudest and best in Sydney thus far. :)

We also had a cool chat after the show with the dancin' roadie. Very cool, found out that Wednesday night was the first time he had ever performed the routine. He also had a rather impressive tatoo inked this morning and performed tonights routine in quite abit of pain. Lovely guy, gave the kids picks and setlists. I am lost for words as to the generousity these guys have for their fans. I'll try to upload the vids overnight (my conncetion has been a bit iffy lately. I have some vids uploaded now from wednesday night which I'll link in the appropriate thread. I'll post tonights links once they are up. :)

Edit... Vids are on the way up, will add in the links as soon as they are active.

Speed of Sound wasn't played. I'm 95% sure of that.

A little bummed about no GoW, but for me the setlist was fine just the way it was.

Just going through pics/vids now.

Yeah I read about that. Quite a bummer really, was looking forward to Glass Of Water too!

Still though, anyone know what that version of 'God Put A Smile On Your Face' and 'Talk' was? It's killing me!

Will they bring out a tour dvd at all you reckon?
