I know, I know, call me an old softy, but I can't help it. I'm buying a Mother Of The Bride dress that has pockets for the Bounty towels I'll need for the wedding. :wink:

That's the million dollar question, lol. I know you must have a good camera, GH. ;)

Bret side! :D
Seats 55-57, Row 30, floorside (the yellow section on the seating plan)
So in the centre really - probably right beside the sound desk. The view will be really good from there as it's central - even if it's further back than I would like.
But no, I don't have a really good camera :( only a wee point & shoot - but my workplace has a good camera with a 200mm zoom I can borrow (I've already checked!). But then, I've got a feeling you're not allowed to take cameras in anyway... :shock: I'll have to investigate that. Either way don't be holding your breath for brilliant shots from me - I'm notoriously bad at that kind of thing even if I do remember to take the camera! :lol:

They usually frown on major cameras, but a call to the venue would let you know if point and shoots are allowed.

Oops...sorry Nancy!

Yay that you got Bret-side! :thumb:

I recall that most places allow cameras but not ones with the honkin'-sized zoom lenses. So if the camera has a great, but unobtrusive, zoom feature then you should be ok. *Fingers crossed.*

Dates announced!

Quote:
Flight of the Conchords to tour in July

Image

The wait is nearly over - Flight Of The Conchords are set to play their first ever run of Australian headline shows this July.

This will be your chance to see New Zealand's fourth most popular folk-parody duo perform classics like 'Carol Brown', 'Foux Da Fafa', 'Epileptic Dogs', 'Business Time', 'Hurt Feelings' and 'Too Many Dicks on the Dancefloor'.

Throughout their live performances, Flight of the Conchords showcase their skills on multiple instruments, including the ukulele, toy piano, keytar, synth and a 1987 Casio DG-20 Casio electric guitar set to mandolin.

It's hard to pinpoint what has kept the duo from touring our shores all this time - was it band manager Murray's inability to get the guys a gig outside of an aquarium, Bret's commitments to his sign holding job or Jemaine's fear that his Aussie ex-girlfriend Keitha would be waiting eagerly for his arrival? Regardless, one thing's for sure - it's going to be one heck of a good time.
