Big Day Out tickets went on sale last Friday and it was apparently the biggest selling day of the Big Day Out ever.
Why, you ask?
Here’s the first announcement of acts:
The White Stripes
Iggy & The Stooges
Kings of Leon
The Mars Volta
The Magic Numbers
The Living End
End of Fashion
Wolf & Cub
Now, sadly I have never been to a BDO. Because of this fact I have missed out on seeing Nirvana, Metallica, Rage Against the Machine, Foo Fighters (seeing them in December!), System of a Down, Red Hot Chili Peppers (although I saw them at the Hordern) and many many many more acts that have graced the BDO stage over the last 10 or so years.
I am going this year. Yes yes. I am going. I have heard rumours that Audioslave may be coming, and perhaps even the Chili Peppers again. But there is always lots of speculation.
Mind you, I don’t have my ticket yet. I have to pop down to Landspeed Records this arvo and get 2! 🙂
