Oz Time Minds Time?

It’s all so…timely! The impending whirlwind whistle-stop to Newcastle is exactly two weeks away. I won’t make it out there. I never really believed I had much chance to begin with. But…I know all the stuff. I shouldn’t feel maudlin. It’s a one off! I’ve been to 19 Simple Minds gigs in the past two years (tonight being the 2nd anniversary of the BBC Radio 2 “In Concert” gig at Hackney Empire) – I COUNT MY BLESSINGS!

But…it won’t stop the pangs and the maudlin…because it is tied in with the pull of home and family and all of that.

Denis – I don’t blame you for asking. It was okay to ask. Dunno why Jim seemed so hacked off with the question. The fans just want to see you guys, that’s all! Denis has not been the ONLY Oz fan to be curious as to why the solitary gig.

I saw his comment this morning…and then a few hours later I am looking through the new issue of Billboard magazine and I see this statement from Michael Gudinski of Frontier Touring Company.

How timely. And, please, Michael! PLEEEEAAASE book SM for another (and wonderfully extensive) tour of Oz?! Please?! I will go to ALL the East coast shows. Sydney, Melbourne, Canberra, Wollongong. Maybe even Brisbane, Gold Coast. Definitely Hobart if it even happened (would looooooove to visit Tassie)! And definitely would go to Adelaide too. Oh, just…EVERYWHERE!

Bucket list dreaming…
