I’ve spent all year moaning about how nobody ever bothers to come and tour down here in Oz, but a trip to The Corner website last week got me all kinds of excited. It looks like the drought is finally over – summer 2010 in Melbourne will go off. You heard it here first.

I’ve already nabbed tickets to British Sea Power (!), as you can see above, and these are the two tracks that I’m hanging out to hear live:

The Great Skua – British Sea Power

Open The Door – British Sea Power

And check out the quality below – even though I’m not into all of these bands, it’s great to see that so many artists are making the trip down under.
