No Splendour Sideshow For Brisbane! Anyone have a time machine and $500?

Did they not have trouble filing out the venues the last time they came? I know a few Australians mentioned the lack of ticket sales in 2010. They might be expecting a higher turnout and a media boost with their new album and a headlines spot at the festival.

If it were on the weekend, I would totally do this, but its during the week and some people have to work.
From memory, the Brisbane show was the only one that sold out on the last tour. Pretty disappointed :-/.

in perth they are playing challenge stadium, which isn't really that big and the pumpkins should fill it. i saw stone temple pilots there last year and was surprised at how small the place is. just basically a basketball court with a few seats.

They have sorted out the acoustics in the Vector arena now. Seen a number of bands there and the sound has been all good.
For the pumpkins I was front row dead centre so I cant really speak for the last time they played there. However I did tell Jimmy at a signing in Aussie a few days later that I was at the show and he commented on the terrible sound so they were well aware of it at the time.
