What a great day, all the acts were fantastic (except Bliss n Eso, but that’s just my opinion. Although they totally failed to work the crowd. Crowded House (a suprise act with Liam Finn on drums) showed them how it was done). My favourites of course were, Crowded House, Split Enz, Hunters and Collectors and Midnight Oil.
Most memorable moment of the day: They piped in Cold Play from Sydney (for a second time) but this time it was with John Farnham. That’s not the memorable bit. The most memorable bit is the entire crowd at the MCG and the SCG, all together singing ‘You’re the Voice’. I don’t know the figures, but it would have to be well in excess of 100,000 people! You couldn’t even hear John Farhnam. Sydney may have got to see it live, but they didn’t get to hear two stadiums full of people joining in. What an amazing feeling!
Funny moment: Some bloke behind us tried to start an ‘Aussie Aussie Aussie’ chant, he only got one ‘Oi Oi Oi’.
There was a minute silence at one point. It was so quiet. Just the sound of thousands of rain ponchos blowing in the wind, and the occasional shout of someone shouting ‘shut up’ to a small majority who weren’t taking it seriously.
