Where to even begin? Well, I guess a link to the setlist: http://www.setlist.fm/setlist/...tralia-3bfbb870.html

Without a doubt the best of the three so far. The band were loose and energetic, the song selection great, and the crowd really into it.

  • I was planning to bring a sign for "Kare Kare"! Didn't need to. It was sublime.
  • My next request would've been "There Goes God". It and "Kare Kare" are two of my top ten Crowdies songs. (Now the only two left I haven't heard are "I Am in Love" and "Sacred Cow", both the longest of long shots.) "There Goes God" was huge fun and segued into "Weather With You"; during the transition there was some humour after somebody threw a bra on stage - and Neil then threw it at Nick.
  • Good work on the paper plane requests and shouted requests, everybody! It paid off with a fantastic "Now We're Getting Somewhere" in the encore. Possibly the highlight of the night just for being so much sheer unbridled fun.
  • Though there was also that version of "Sister Madly" - forget Thursday's version! Barely a correct lyric was sung and it was hilarious, especially when Neil and Nick got into a conversation mid-song about seeing The Velvet Underground in Paris in 1995 and sharing a bed; "that would be fine now," Neil said, "but back then I put a pillow between us!"
  • I could keep going and going with the highlights. "Into Temptation" was really beautiful; "Hole in the River" one of the best I've heard; fireworks going off at the start of "Private Universe" surreal; "Whispers and Moans" has torn it up all week; I will never tire of "In My Command".
  • Every night Tim has got one more song than the night before. Bring on the huge Woodface extravaganza tomorrow!

Absolutely buzzing after this show. Of the gigs I've seen I doubt anything will beat that first Forum show in Melbourne, 2008, but geez this is up there.

Another great set list! "Kare Kare" and especially "There Goes God" are also favorites of mine. Plus "Into Temptation" and "Now We're Getting Somewhere"! That's every request I could've imagined from the first phase (barring my two favorites from TOLM, "In the Lowlands" and "Never Be the Same"). Wish I could've been there this week. I'll have to put on FTTW today.

What a spectacular setlist. Compared to the Friday gig I attended, they dropped Not The Girl and added There Goes God, Kare Kare, In My Command, Into Temptation, Sister Madly and Getting Somewhere. Dammit...

In consolation, I did get When You Come and Pour le Monde which were cut from Saturday. Can't really judge unless you are in attendance, but this certainly looks like the best of the four on paper.

I was flying home at the time, wish I could have hung around for this one but there's only so much accommodation and tickets a poor uni student can afford.

And Nails In My Feet! I thought Friday was fantastic, but really I would've been delighted with any night.

Well spotted. What a great song it is, too. Any night would have been tremendous.
