Didn't I tell you it would be like this? :lol:
Between our no-camera policies and our somewhat reserved national character, I'm not surprised at all! You northern hemisphere types are always more, um, enthusiastic!

And irrespective is a word. :nod: Irregardless isn't tho :tsk:

I see there's a sweepstake going on, on FOTC's FB page to win a t-shirt here. Only eligible for US & Canadian residents. Rules can be found here.

And Bret and Jemaine are going to be on Radio NZ at 1.15pm NZ time today on the national stream here. :D

Ooh that radio NZ interview is quite cool. Bus Driver's Song sounded so good. I liked Bret's idea about a short film about the bus driver.

I was having FoTC withdrawals after the FOUR shows I saw :supz:, but now that the tour is over, I'm having withdrawals all over again. Daily updates and pics spoiled all of us, I think! So, now what?

Side note: I had the luxury of sleeping in a bit today and was having the strangest dream. I started to slowly wake as Bret and Jemaine we're creeping into my dream. I opened my eyes and realized that the tv was on and the guys were singing Cheer Up, Murray. I cracked up laughing and my hubby (have I mentioned him before? :shock: ) said he was shocked at how long it took me to wake up with FoTC on. :lol:
What a great way to wake up!

I know, can't believe the tour is over already. At least we have all the updates to look back over for the time being before we hear about what's in store next for Bret & Jemaine. :)

Aww, that is a great way to be woken up!

Flight of the Conchords are finalist for the Top Comedy Tour award at the 2012 Billboard Touring Awards 8)
Roger Waters, Bruce Springsteen, Madonna, Coldplay, Kenny Chesney Among 2012 Billboard Touring Awards Finalists
October 30, 2012 | By Ray Waddell, Nashville

Finalists for the 2012 Billboard Touring Awards boast a diverse mix of genres, touring strategies, venue types, and positions on the career arc and their broad geographic footprint points to the increasingly global nature of the touring industry

Among the finalists are mega-tours by such veteran artists as Roger Waters, Bruce Springsteen & the E Street Band, Madonna, Coldplay and Kenny Chesney, along with newer stars like Jason Aldean, Miranda Lambert, Lady Antebellum, the Black Keys and Taylor Swift.

The Billboard Touring Awards are primarily based on actual numbers reported to Billboard Boxscore, reflecting real business being done, as opposed to any sort of voting procedure. The exceptions would be such honors as Legend Of Live (Neil Diamond), the Concert Marketing & Promotion Award, the Humanitarian Award (the Apollo Theater), the Road Warrior Award presented by Shell ROTELLA, and the Creative Content Award (Michael Jackson Immortal by Cirque du Soleil), as well as the Eventful Fans' Choice Award, the latter determined by online fan "demands" at Eventful.com for Boxscore's top tours.

The awards are based on numbers reported to Boxscore from Oct. 1, 2011, through Sept. 30, 2012.

The finalists for the Top Tour, based on Boxscore gross, are Bruce Springsteen & the E Street Band's Wrecking Ball tour, Madonna's MDNA tour and Roger Waters' The Wall Live tour. The finalists for Top Draw, based on Boxscore attendance, are Springsteen, Coldplay and Waters.

The Top Package award, which goes to the top-grossing tour with three or more artists on the bill, are seven-time winner Chesney for his Brothers of the Sun tour featuring Tim McGraw, along with Grace Potter & the Nocturnals and Jake Owen; Swift's Speak Now tour, which included Needtobreathe on all dates, along with such acts as Danny Gokey, Frankie Ballard, Hunter Hayes, Randy Montana, Josh Kelley, and several others; and Aldean's My Kinda Party tour, with Luke Bryan, Lauren Alaina/Rachel Farley, and DeeJay Silver.

Finalists for the Breakthrough award, which goes to an artist still in its first decade of headlining that breaks into the ranks of the top tours for the first time, are Lambert, the Black Keys and Lady Antebellum. The Top Boxscore award, which goes to the highest-grossing single engagement of the year, are the Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival, Indio, Calif.; Waters at Estadio River Plate, Buenos Aires; and Lollapalooza at Chicago's Grant Park.

Among the industry awards, finalists for Top Manager are Jon Landau Management (Springsteen), Mark Fenwick (Waters) and Guy Oseary (Madonna). The Top Agency finalists are Creative Artists Agency, Paradigm Talent and William Morris Endeavor Entertainment. Top Promoter finalists are AEG Live, Live Nation Entertainment and Time 4 Fun, and finalists for Top Arena are the O2 in London, Rod Laver Arena in Melbourne, Aus., and the Staples Center in Los Angeles. Finalists for Top Club are the 9:30 Club in Washington, D.C., the Fillmore in San Francisco, and House Of Blues Houston.

Jeff Dunham won for the second year in a row. Oh well, hopefully FOTC will have another chance to win the award.
