Can someone please tell me what "daggy" means?
Ah now that depends entirely on what country you are in and the context in which it's used!
In actuality dags are the dirty poo-ey scraggly wool bits on a sheeps butt - but in colloquial language it's something quite different! :lol: In NZ slang a dag is someone who is funny - a bit of a jokester, so to be called a dag is quite positive. But in Australia it's pretty much the opposite - it's someone who's a bit of a dickhead/loser, I believe. So if something is daggy, eg, clothes, it usually means it's stupid/unfashionable and/or ugly/embarrassing.

Correct! But it can be quite affectionate too, like I'd describe my Dad as a dag sometimes - a bit lame and uncool :D

BUT....ANYWAY....

WOOOOOOOOO!! I got tickets!! So excited! :D

:supz: :supz: :supz: :partyman:

All up cost me $175 bucks (for 2 tickets)... :shock: But so worth it...hopefully! I'm in the front section, but about 8 rows back unfortunately, but I was just happy to get the tickets! :D

:woohoo: Congrats on your tickets, gibbs and Peaches! :supz: So glad both of you managed to get tickets. :clap: seasick_sarah, have you managed to grab tickets yet or will you be buying them in the general sale?

I've merged the "Tour Dates" and "General Tour Discussion" threads into one thread so now the posts from both threads are under the "General 2012 Tour Discussion Thread". I guess it makes more sense for all the posts to be in one thread now to prevent any further confusion. The first post contains all the tour dates. :)

I'm Bret side....but that could be a good thing, as apparently I'll have a nice view of lovely Jem :lol:

How does the meet n greet work? Do I just stand outside and wait.... :shock:

Yes. And they may or may not show up... (spent 1.5 hours waiting for them to show up after their Mpls gig, only to learn they skipped over to the Leonard Cohen show elsewhere in town....)

If possible, scout the venue out early...see where the stage door is or back exit. Also, look for their bus afterwards. They have to come out and get on that bus and that's where you want to lie in wai.....I mean, where you want to calmly await their eventual exit. :D

Agreed with Laura, finding out about stage doors and where their tour bus is located will definitely help. If you're unsure, you can always ask staff at the venue and there'll probably be other fans waiting around for a possible meet and greet so looking around at where fans are congregating after the show and asking fellow fans may be useful. SW's plan of action could also prove to be fruitful. ;)

Ooh, the general public sale for Australian tour tickets is starting soon! Good luck to everyone purchasing tickets. :D
