Second Sydney Big Day Out announced

The first Sydney Big Day Out seemed to sell out pretty quick, so they’ve announced a second one in the 27th of January – same bands, same venue, same bat channel. Tickets go on sale on the 11th of October. In other related news Gold Coast Big Day Out tickets go on sale midnight tonight! Get on it Banana Benders!

That’s unusual, isn’t it?

wow crazy, I didn’t know they had done this in the past! As you say, they may as well just announce two shows at the beginning…especially with this line up.

I’d imagine tool would’ve known about it? Surely they couldnt just add another date, which could potentially conflict with scheduling…

Do you think there will still be time to play some sideshows if they start announcing these 2nd day BDO’s? they might feel that this fulfills their obligation to the aussie crowd.. 🙁

Hands up if your not buying BDO tickets for a failsafe because you know they will play sideshows. Well replace KNOW with HOPE and that’s the boat I’m in.

yea mate i gotta agree with Hellboy, i’m not risking not seeing Tool at all. we dont get many chances to see them down here and although i’d prefer a full show…and i have a contact that may be able to get me a ticket to one of the side shows, should they happen…..i’m still not risking it!

i’ll take Tool anyway i can get it 🙂

looking at the gap between Melb and Ade, it seems they’ve left more than enough time for a Melb Sideshow *fingers crossed*, whereas with the additional Sydney show, knowing tool like to have a night off fairly often, it would be quite a squeeze to fit the sideshow in… obviously only suggesting this from past experience and hoping for the alternate for everyone

Less of an assumption more to do with finances (just booked a holiday last week) which is why I won’t buy BDO tickets, not now anyways. There’s always a way of getting into BDO if need be, there’s that friend who wants to sell their ticket, the BDO announces way more ticket sales, and then the more frowned upon ways. While I understand that I’m going to have to get my shit together if there isn’t sideshows, it just makes more sense to me to wait and see what happens.

I missed tickets to the first sydney show. I hope they play Thirrd Eye at the 2nd show too

They don’t announce 2 Sydney shows for the simple reason to sell out the 1st show fast and have people buzzing.

mate i’m just hoping they play Third eye at all? i have this gut feeling they will deem it unsuitable for a Festival gig. Greatest opening song ever!!!! IMO

Junior, cast your mind back to Auckland BDO ’07 not your department but what happend with the screens? they didnt start working until the third song of the set which was Jambi if i recall…FAIL! 🙂

Sydney, GC and Melbourne all sold out now? is that faster than normal? i havnt really paid as much attention the Aussie shows in the past, but it seems they are selling out exceptionally quick. Auckland will sell out eventually,… Read more »
