given how close the winery apparently was to getting called off, I've
been wondering more if it's the fishing he's keen for. and, why not a
concert, and why not throw some nights in for the Aussies as well to
help pay for bringing everyone over? sounds good to me!

I want seats as good as my Enz ones, dammit. (third row centre)
hopefully TicketMaster have figured out how to sell tickets without
their wheezing IIS servers falling over .25ms after sales start.

Strongly suspect Auckland will sell out -fast-, with a second concert
announced soon after. Vector's not that big a venue...
