What an amazing concert.
Found a girl in the Melbourne Au Pairs Facebook group who was wanting to go, so I messaged her and she just happened to be from Grimsby, Ontario :) haha such a small world! I bought tickets and Amie and I met up a week before the concert one night last week. We found out pretty quickly that we have pretty similar taste in music, so that was cool.
I picked up Amie and we drove to the train station and took the train to Flinders, grabbed some dinner at Grill'd...kinda like The Works at home, but with a ton of veggie burgers as well, which was nice for Amie cuz she's vegan...so much respect for her, wow, not sure I could ever do that!
Then we walked to Rod Laver Arena, about 20 minutes to get there. Even though our seats were at the very very top, we were still so pumped because it was like half the size of the Sky Dome, so we still had a great view. Apparently it seats 35,000, Volker told me.
And another incredibly exciting part was the opening band...Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeroes! How does that even happen?? And before they came on, was a guy named Willy Mason, who was also unreal. So much talent, could barely handle it.
And then Mumford and Sons. Gah. Just blown away by their real talent. They opened with "Lovers' Eyes" from their new album and it was just perfect.
