If anyone knows SheWolf, tell her that her email is bouncing and to get in touch asap.

Conversely, if I don't hear from her soon, I will have 2 extra tickets for tonight.

Looking forward to hearing about the show tonight. I hope everyone attending will spill the deets! :D

Gibbs, it turns out they did play F on the Ceiling. Someone tried to take a video...but they were immediately shut down by Jemaine!-here's a short vid of the beginning. :lol: More short videos can be found here.

Was good. Heard some new songs (new to me, at least). Out of the new ones, liked the dad song the most.

No merch, that I saw. ;(

Was J a bit cranky for real there? They made a joke about not filming it and uploading it to YouTube during the tour last year. They said they didn't mind filming any of the other songs, just not that one because it was new. I had a recording security guard chase me for filming other songs, so I stopped. I didn't tell my kids to stop though :) Bret and Jemaine had said it was fine to film them, so I figured it was fine. Some security people take their jobs a little too seriously. There is some footage on YouTube from the Brisbane concert and you can clearly see HUNDREDS of phones recording video!!!

So glad to hear you had a great time, Cuse! :D Could you let us know the setlist for the show (doesn't have to be in order) and how long they played for?

I think J doesn't want anyone to record F on the Ceiling and other new songs at these intimate shows so that it isn't spoiled for others during their tour but it will be harder to control during Oddball. He probably doesn't mind recording other songs though, like last time round.

I just embedded the video for you. ;) I had a sneek peak at the other videos you've uploaded so far and they're amazing! Love Jemaine's dancing and enthusiasm playing the triangle during Inner City Pressure. I see you were able to avoid getting your phone smashed in for recording Sex Tips lol. Love hearing the additions to the new songs! Oh, and "Sally/Creep"? What a wonderful surprise, it works so well. :D

Thanks for sharing those photos too! Must have been such a fun night. :supz:

Embedding SW's other videos as requested. I guess these can be considered spoilerish since Creep hasn't been done before and the last two videos are kinda new so don't watch them if you haven't heard them before and want to be surprised at an upcoming show. :)

Those were great! :) Loved all the differing description for fish up the butt, lol. Did you ever get stinkeye for filming, SW? Or did you get the loving-eye from J at all? *sigh*

I can't wait to see them in 2 wks but it sure won't be as close as you all got! :D

Any more details? :)
