Purple fever hits Australia (more write-ups soon!)

Just a quick post to check in and let readers know that I have a few gigs to write-up and will post them very soon - namely the awesome Earth, Wind & Fire concert I went recently, Seal and Maceo Parker!

After leaving the Maceo Parker gig last Wednesday, buzzing from the amazing energy he and his band brought to the Corner Hotel, I discovered that there was about to be an announcement concerning an upcoming Prince tour down under!

Prince W2 Australia Tour
At 3am, news broke online and the "Welcome 2 Australia" tour was confirmed. This was huge news for me, along with all my Prince loving friends, and, between grabbing news wherever I could find it, scrambling for tickets (I'm seeing his 2 Sydney shows and 3 Melbourne shows) and launching my new unofficial Prince fansite, 'til the Dawn, things have been rather hectic!

Oh, yeah, and work. There's that, somewhere in there, too ;)

So that's where things are at for me right now. At one stage I was so busy going to live music gigs (not to mention comedy gigs, being that we've been in the midst of the Melbourne International Comedy Festival down here this month as well), that I was not finding time to write about them.

But that will all change shortly and I'll share my thoughts on these amazing gigs later this week, as we get ready for what is shaping up to be an extraordinary May here in Australia for live music.

    Last year you attended a Michael Paynter gig with Jordan Clarey as one of the support acts, and you indicated that you would have to check him out more as you had only his last song after arriving a little late. Just thought you might be interested to know that Jordan has just recently formed a band called Move On Be Strong (MOBS). They are performing at Revolver next Tuesday 26 Feb 2013. If you have the time you should check them out. All original songs written by Jordan. A lot of his fans think that this band has the potential to become very successful.

    You won't regret it if you do.
