SAW SIMPLE PLAN PLAY AT FESTIVAL HALL TONIGHT!
It was amazing. Thanks for being there, billys_pin_up
Unfortunately SP PIT SELLS OUT DAMN QUICK, so we were stuck in seating, but IT WAS AWESOME ALL THE SAME.
Would have been a thousand times better in the pit, being able to see their faces and all, but it was fucking sweet all the same.
They were filming it for a dvd. Now, I'm not sure if they're doing another live dvd, or if they're just filming snippets from gigs, and I'd prefer another live dvd, BECAUSE IT WOULD BE THE ONE IN MY CITY. THAT I WENT TO. So it would be amazing my default, but I think it's probably more likely to be snippets of live shows.
ANYWAY. They fucking rocked.
The Never Ever and We The Kings opened for them. I'd never heard of either of them, and I wasn't blown away by them, but they didn't suck, so that's something, I guess.
Anyway, SIMPLE PLAN. The main attraction. The only thing I cared about seeing. I keep missing them! I didn't go a few years ago, because I had no one to go with, and when they played Vancouver, I was visiting Melb, and when they played Melbourne, I was back in Van! BUGGER.
BUT I FINALLY GOT THERE THIS TIME, SO LET ME DO THE TRACKLIST.
I can do the starting song and the final song with absolute certainty, but everything in there is just in no particular order:
The Worst Day Ever.
When I'm With You/You Don't Mean Anything/My Alien Medley.
I Got a Feeling/I'm Sexy and I Know It/Moves Like Jagger/Dynamite Medley. (there may have been others, but I can't recall)
God Must Hate Me.
When I'm Gone.
Your Love Is a Lie.
Welcome to My Life.
Can't Keep My Hands Off You.
Jet Lag [ft Christina Parie].
You Suck At Love.
This Song Saved My Life.
I'd Do Anything.Encore:
Loser of the Year.
I'm Just a Kid.
Perfect [acoustic start].
They also tried Aussie accents (showah, latah etc, and they pronounce Melbourne correctly!).
They talked about Vegemite, of course, and Pierre said he quite liked it, then David said he was going to rub Vegemite all over his body and asked if Pierre would still enjoy it if he had to lick it off. Pierre claimed to be turned off by this. I think otherwise.
THEY HAD BEACH BALLS DURING SUMMER PARADISE. A LOT OF THEM. THERE WERE GIANT BALLS EVERYWHERE!
Pierre got in the crowd once, David twice, once was crowd surfing, and I can't even imagine how much he must've been groped. Holy fucking shit.
They introduced a hot new dj, who was actually Chuck. DJ Funky C, I think. Pretty fucking funny.
Annnnnnnnd I think that's all I can remember.
Man. I want to relive it so bad. I'd Do Anything was definitely one of my favourites, because it's my favourite song anyway, but they were all amazing.
Right. I'm off to bed, now. *yawn*.
FUCK YEAH SP.
P.S. GO THE DEES. FUCK YEAH, MELBOURNE FINALLY WON A GAME. AGAINST ESSENDON. THE LAST TEAM AGAINST THE SECOND FROM THE TOP, AND WE WON
. FUUUUUUUCK YEAH!
