Hey, just wondering who else is going to the show in Vancouver. The only western Canadian show! I'm excited that they are actually coming anywhere near me (8hour drive away). Maybe some of us fans can have some fun afterwards?

Yeah I'm going there, and I'm excited beyond belief! I'm so happy they're coming to Canada, I'm flying out there from Edmonton, how about you? I really hope they do meet and greet afterwards!

I'm so damn happy for Canadian Conchordians! I mean, if New Zealand IS the Canada of the South Pacific, then it's only right that the boys show a little Kiwi love for the Great White North.

Also? I have the worst mutha'ucking craving for a large double-double and some sour-cream glazed Timbits. I love being home in London, but I MISS my Timmies. And now I'm wondering what kind of donuts the boys will go for when they're in Canuckistan. I see Bret as honey cruller kind of guy. Jemaine? Jemaine is tougher. Maybe pink glazed with sprinkles. He does like to surprise people, after all. :D

What's the concert venue like in Vancouver? Has anyone been there before? Have you, Dandy?

I'm coming down from Prince George. Not sure if I'm flying or driving yet. It depends on time constraints and money I suppose.

Yay!! I'm so happy too, Turnip! I almost died when I found out they were coming to my city! Canada gets some Conchord lovin' again! :heart:

Eeep! :shock:

The show is at The Centre for Performing Arts http://www.centreinvancouver.com/
It's a really nice venue... Quite new (built in 1995 I think?) There are 1836 seats on three levels. I've seen a few shows there before. I'm so flippin' excited to see them in a proper concert! :bounce:

BTW - I can totally see Jemaine as a pink glazed with sprinkles kinda guy. ;)

So how is the view from around the area where the balcony's start? I looked at a lot of pictures of the venue and it does look really gorgeous.

Thanks, I had an account before, but I've no idea what happened to it. OH WELL! I've been coming to the site for quite a while, though. I'm a lurker.

The venue is fairly small, so I reckon it's a decent view from mid-orchestra. Sorry I can't be more helpful - the furthest back from the stage I've been there is row K.
The venue is gorgeous though... the lobby is amazing! :)

You lucky guys in the front row. I'd kill for those seats, I'm at the back of the dress circle, because of a ticket buying mishap. But I'm just so lucky to be able to go. The date is approaching, I'm starting to get really excited! :D :D :D

Not a review per se, but thought I'd put it here since it's Canadian and references the upcoming Vancouver show. :) It was a nice read with only 1 tiny mistake.....Foux fafa. :)
