Late night and early morning, welcome to touring. The band & crew left the venue in Auckland a few hours after midnight, back to the hotel to pack, and then off on an early flight to Brisbane, AUSTRALIA. Upon arrival it was no time for sleep, Kirk & Rob hooked up with Luke & Fozz, some local surfers, to check out the waves. After all, we are staying in SURFERS PARADISE (yes, that is the name of the place, gotta love it!). Tomorrow is another BIG DAY OUT show. We will be joined by, among others, The Strokes, The Datsuns, The Mars Volta and the Flaming Lips. The day after that, on Monday, Metallica will do a headlining show at the Entertainment Center in Brisbane.
