Korn in Concert at the Sydney Superdome!

On Thursday the 27th of April my boyfriend Daniel and I had a massive night of heavy metal at the Sydney Superdome! This was my first taste of REALLY heavy metal music live in concert and I loved it!
The line up for the evening featured four Heavy Metal bands from the USA (with all three support bands never having played in Australia before); 10 Years, Hatebreed, Disturbed, followed by the main performers, Korn. As you would expect the night included plenty of shouting, jumping, moshing, and crowd surfing,(especially in the mosh pit that went off on the general admission floor! It looked quite violent in the heavier songs). By the end of the night my neck was sore and Daniel had lost his voice from all the singing/shouting along to his favourite tracks from Disturbed and Korn.
The only real let down for the evening (besides the fact I couldn't bring my digital camera in with me) was that the sound for Korn wasn't right; the lead singer couldn't be heard over the drowning of…

Live on Triple J radio

Friday the 7th of April was a very exciting day for me, because at approximately 4:25pm I gave a live speal on Australian national radio about my dramatic morning in purchasing the hotly contested Arctic Monkeys tickets.

I wrote into Triple J's Great Day/Crap day segment with Robbie Buck's Topshelf radio. (This is where you request a song for a great day and a song for a crap day). A lady from the station called me on my mobile at about 3:15pm and said she'd call me back between 4:45 and 5:15pm.

I told family and some friends they could catch me on the radio at this time but Triple J ended up calling me at 4:20pm and only two people I told heard me on the radio, along with the rest of Australia who was tuning in at this time.
