    Can you let us know if you’ll be playing any shows outside of the tour? Big Day Out is extremely hot and not a very pleasant context to enjoy a gig if you’re over the age of 16

  • twofortytwo

    Please let us know if you end up doing any sideshows! Whilst BDO is a classic staple on the Aussie/NZ summer festival circuit, it’s simply not a pleasant environment to see any show, let alone you guys.

  • Steff

    stoked! also would rather side shows though (for Perth) so if you could let us know before I go buying BDO tickets would be much appreciated 🙂

  • funkybek

    Please, please, please do some sideline gigs! Especially in Perth 😉

  • sars

    Second the request for a sideshow. Wont be at the BDO, but would definitely come and see you guys at another venue.

  • rowee

    your 2 biggest fans live in Hobart…please come to TASMANIA!!! or at least do a side show in Melbourne so we don’t have to go to BDO (a cesspool of filth!) 😀

  • d23

    side show, side show, side show.
    Gold Coast/Brisbane would be amazing.
    Waited sooo many years for this! yay

  • rkspp

    sideshows would be great!! in perth too 🙂
    can’t wait for this!!

  • stephanie

    sydney sideshows! 😀

  • Miss Lexie

    You guys are the only reason why I’d go to Big Day Out this year! PLEASE do a sideshow in Brisbane or Gold Coast!! 🙂

  • Cray23

    You would be great to see, just not at BDO. Could you please notify of any shows outside of BDO, particularly around the sydney newcastle area? It would be awesome, just not at the BDO, because they can be out of hand

  • Tansplant from the US here in Sydney. I can’t echo the sideshow enough! Someplace cozy in Sydney would be perfect!

  • Mel_Only

    Please please please do a few side shows!!!!!

  • quantize

    Both Kraftwerk and Leftfield each played side gigs at the Enmore theatre in Sydney…highly recommended if ur management are looking at options for sideshows..

    You’d have no problem selling it out since I think your audience spans a wide age range like theirs..

    As you can see from the response, the BDO, whilst being a great tradition here, is not a good environment either acoustically or visually

  • twofortytwo

    No sideshow would definitely be the biggest disappointment of the year. So many people have been waiting for you guys to come down under. But no one really wants to $180 just to see one act. Playing BDO really does alienate a lot of Aussie (and NZ) fans. 🙁

    Sideshow in Brisbane, please!

  • murdoc_19_2000

    side shows please!!!

  • bryn.gilbertson

    I nearly died when I heard you were coming to New Zealand! You have many fans down here, and you’d certainly be the ONLY reason I’d go to Big Day Out this year. If you decided to do a side show in Wellington (CAPITAL OF NZ!), many people would come I assure you =D Love you guys long time! Huge fan.

  • green_fairy

    PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE do a sideshow in Sydney!!! I will be completely heartbroken otherwise!

  • josh88

    I plan on seeing you guys perform either way, whether its at bdo or a sideshow. However if you do decide to put on sideshows pleeeease don’t forget Perth 🙂

  • Tobias Funke [SEQEN]

    Definitely do a Melbourne sideshow! =] Much love!

  • hazy_crazy

    My boyfriend and I are huge fans of yours, and we’re excited that you’re coming to Australia. Slightly disappointed it’s at the BDO. We only want to see you and one other band – we can’t afford to fork out that much money just for that :/ Would love if you did a side-show in Adelaide. Or at least come back soon and do some side-shows. This is where your true fans will come out to support you!

  • stinky

    Perth sideshow please!

  • lannah

    Please do a sideshow in Brisbane! BDO does not deserve your awesomeness!

  • RCV

    I saw you guys play at the Roskilde festival years ago and it still stands as the most amazing live gig I’ve ever seen! I won’t be able to make it to the BDO so please, pretty please do a sideshow in Melbourne. Or anywhere really, I’ll fly interstate for it!

  • Jes

    I haven’t been to the BDO since 1999…. Please do some sideshows if you are not locked in to an exclusivity agreement :””( I think 99% of people would rather hear a personal set not a festival set.. Please!!!!


  • pauli

    Why no sideshow in Perth? It would sell out in a second! Sat feb 4 would be ideal for you! Do it

  • WystanW

    Any Clue’s on Pre-Sale password for Melbourne Side show?

  • rhys2d

    Hey…caught your Melbourne side show @ Palace, great, but…I love you guys & need to ‘pipe up’ about your ‘thin on the ground’ efforts, bit suss on the length of performance & venue selection…I paid my dues for ticket, shirt & being from ‘the coast’ (1hr20min drive away) felt a lil’ jibbed on your hour 5 stage departure with average crowd encouragement to come back for 10-15min. Yeah, yeah, were all big time but jeez guys give us a show, as you said yourselves ” a good start to the weekend” a short one at that.
