INXS's Australian Tour

So INXS have decided to go on another tour. Cool! But so far, it seems to only be an Australian tour. Bummer! Has INXS suddenly turned chicken to come to the USA? I hope not. Nah, I don't really believe that. Hopefully they will announce some US tour dates as well. I hope. Not that I am positive I will be able to attend. I mean, I'd like to, but I'm also a very busy person here at home, and very likely the concert (IF they come here) will be in Seattle or Portland. Though I can probably make it to Portland quicker than I can make it to Seattle, a random trip to either of those cities is not really in my schedule. But I might sneak out for a few hours so I can try to make it to the concert. LOL! I mean, I want to get some on film, put it on DVD, and watch it anytime I want. Maybe even offer it to the fans! Those who didn't get a chance to make it or just want to relive the experience. I need a better camera though. Like I said, I would love more than anything to also add an interview with INXS. They could be my first celeb interview since my online interview with Dougal Dixon. He's one of those though that only people who are into science knows. But still, a celebrity in his own right. I'd love INXS to be the next. But I don't know. Though it would make my video quite unique. I can ask, it never hurts to ask! But alas, it may be just a dream. But if I could get it to happen, maybe it would keep the other fans quiet about INXS being for nothing but money. Sad as that may sound, I don't know if it's true. I hope not. In the past it seems that INXS was all for the music, and the fans. But I don't know. Let's see. If I do get to do an interview with INXS, I'd like it to be with all 6 members, including JD. They may only allow big, major companies to interview INXS, like the newspapers or something. How can I explain that I am from a small, friend-based company? LOL! That's why I said this may all be just a dream. But like I also said, it never hurts to ask! I'll keep you all informed on how that goes. But I'm not really expecting it to come out in my favor. hehe!

I personally do not care about which fans will also be attending. I go to these concerts just to see INXS. No one else. But it is always nice when I do make new friends. I remember my concert at the Schnitzer Hall in Portland, I connected with a very sweet young woman. I didn't know her, I don't think I ever got her name. But I remember what she looked like. She had long, blond hair and brown eyes. I never ask anyone's names at these concerts because I know I might never see them again. Concert trolls, I don't give a shit about! That's my new name for people who go to concerts and harass others. Examples would be the delusional mods. They go to concerts, but it is for no other reason than to harass other fans. But that's why it's rare for me to go to a concert and connect with anyone. People are evil. They will be nice to your face, and then shit talk you behind your back. I just ignore them. Of course if I do go to a concert, and happen to come face-to-face with any of the delusional mods again, I have a cute idea! hehehe! I won't mention what it is now, but in the end, I think it'll be funny as heck! It would definitely add some comedy relief to my video. ;) You all will have to wait and see what I'm talking about. But at the very least, maybe it'll keep those dumbasses away from me. Let me go my way, and they can go their's.

Maybe it's a good thing INXS may not be coming here for a while. I need to save some money so I can get that new video camera, and some more battery power. I'd need to find extra batteries! Camcorder batteries are not cheap either! But I don't want to run out of juice mid-way into the concert! That's what I hate most about filming. That's why I never bring my dang digital camera! The darn thing always runs out of juice at the most inopportune moment! I think that's what I want for Christmas, a new video camera, with a good zoom lens. I want to be able to get right up there on stage with INXS, or at least make it seem like I am! I need a new cam and wireless mic. I want to be able to talk into the video and still be heard over the crowd. The wireless mic is going to be the cheapest thing I get. I've seen them on Amazon for only $20. Of course I may have to go with a better model than that if I want it to last me. You can see the kind of film I will be making. An interview with the band will just be extra gravy if I can get it. I don't really like movies that are all concert footage! Though I love INXS and the men in the band dearly, a movie of all concert-footage is dull! I'd like to add a bit of one fan's point of view, and her day before the concert begins. Maybe get some other fans involved if they want to. That's a big maybe though. hehe!

Well, we'll see what happens. If all goes well, it'll be a good video. If all goes the way I'd like it to, it'll be one HELL of a damn great video!!

I wanted to go see Lady Gaga in concert when she came to this state last month. But she arrived at the same time I went to Billings, so I had to miss it. But I really wanted to go to Billings. That was my graduation present.
You'd have to live in Australia to see this INXS tour. I'm sure you would have had a great time.

Maybe next time she comes to this state you can go see her. If you're still here. Or maybe she will go to Montana someday.
