Summary of our trip to Oz










Back in cold Scandinavia again it's not strange you are longing back to the land down under.
I could do without the long flights but the rest was amazing.
Friendly people everywhere
 with great hospitality, professional promotors and crew, amazing crowd, mostly good weather and I really enjoyed the Australian beer. Last but not least we got to see something really incredible, the duststorm that rolled in over Sydney on Wednesday morning. Someone told me that this was very rare and haven't happened since 1939.

The only thing that was really annoying me as a pedestrian was that it took a lifetime to cross a street because of the red lights. I guess that if you don't drive a car you are at the bottom of society in this part of the world ;-)

Can't wait to go back Next time I'll make sure too have even more days off before the first show to get rid of jetlag and do more sightseeing.

Thank you SOOOOOOO much for coming Down Under guys. I was at your Sydney show with my daughter and you just blew us away. We were right in front of you and you gave my daughters friend your pic and Cat gave me his. I'm sorry the time difference mucked you around but am so happy you want to come back. Can't wait to see you guys again and if you have more time you should come up the mountains where I live and see some great scenery.
Thanks again guys, love you all.
Dark Kisses,
Linda xx

Awesome, awesome post! Glad you guys enjoyed your time here cos I know all us Aussie Deathstars fans enjoyed having you here! I look forward to waking up and finding new Australian tourdates from you guys ;D Though I'm guessing it'll be a while yet before you come back. It was the first time I'd ever seen a dust storm as well! And though I wasn't in Sydney when it happened, in Canberra (where I live) we got a lot of it too, it was very surreal walking out of uni and seeing the sky an eerie yellowy brown colour, made me think of War of the Worlds for some reason =P Haha, I know Sydney traffic is terrible, but if you live in Sydney or have been there a lot you know all the tricks! YAY for you having a Golden Gaytime!!! Those are some of the best icecreams out there man =D I didn't realise they were only in Australia!
Thanks once again for the amazing shows you guys put it on, seeing you guys was one of my top concert experiences!

I think Nightmare is becoming fat. He must eat less and moving more.
