Massive Attack concert, 11 March 2003  
Massive Attack played a relaxed, laid-back concert - their first in four years apparently - at the Rod Laver arena here in Melbourne. It was also the most political concert I have attended for... well, ever, maybe! Big-screen graphics included rolling real-time statistics on everything from 'hectares of desert resulting from land-mismanagement' to 'teenage pregnancies' to statistics on billion-dollar spending on defence by world governments:

Iraq 1.3 billion
USA 399 billion

The crowd vibe was excellent and I had lots of room to dance up the back. The crowd went crazy when headline snippets about Bush/war/Iraq/terror flickered across the screen interspersed with graphics of planes and bombs. Massive Attack tapped their audience's concerns well and if war does break out, their tour is going to have an even creepier vibe to it elsewhere.

Goes without saying I am green with envy, but *cough* does this also mean you're (both) standing me up for Hamlet? I might not survive the experience by myself. But you know, just go, if that's what you want. I'll be brave. (Okay, green like Lance's eyes with envy.) (For Bop, that's very green.)

Re: *_* Deliriously happy
Hellooo! Yes, schedule a little complicated: basically Monday and Wednesday nights are out. Tues and Thurs nights, preferably not! Otherwise, I'll be there, no probs... just might have to flee after to do homework!

Ringing is best... I'm dinnering with Sarah (post-b'day) tonight and out for lunch tomorrow, but otherwise around most of w/end... I'm sure we'll catch each other on the phone at some stage!

**studiously ignoring mentions of eye-colours and cheekbones**
