Hard to believe but true:
http://www.adelaidefestival.com.au/2016/music/sunn_O_and_Magma

The bad news is that there is only 1 concert - here in Adelaide for the Festival Of Arts.

And it seems that Magma are sharing the bill with a band called Sunn O))), who are influenced by another band called Earth and may or may not be to your taste. Perhaps not for some I suspect:
"SUNN O))) presents an intense situation of which the audio energy can reach high decibel levels. SUNN O))) reminds you to take care of your personal health and to wear earplugs (available at the venue) in case of discomfort"
Confused

The good news is that, starting from now, we have 4 and a bit months to brush up on our Kobaļan (and to stock up on spare earplugs).

Thanks!

I will definitely be there for Magma.  I'm not sure I'll be there for the other band - "Sunn0)))" - more research needed there I think.

And of course the concert is on a Saturday night, so "Seasons Of Change" will not be going to air live that night...

I don't know the other band either, but I saw it mentioned a few times.

Perfectly understandable Smile

Dang it, wish that alien cult was coming down to Melbourne!

Wondering whether I can convince a friend to go on a many hours road trip that weekend to see them!

WOMADelaide is run over the same weekend here in Adelaide if more incentive is needed - though only a drawcard if your friend is into World Music though...

I see from the link Godspeed You!Black Emperor are playing Thebbie in March. Cool! 2016 is going to be a good prog year in Adelaide I think. Just got to hope that Slava Grigoryan has taken our advice from last year and booked Steve Hacket for the 2016 Adelaide Guitar Festival. (wishful thinking)

For years I've joked to my wife that any trip we ever make to France would have to coincide with a Magma concert. I was more than a little shocked to stumble across a Magma concert in Adelaide while checking the Magma site a few days ago for a place to buy Sl*g Tanz. Good excuse to visit Adelaide for the first time. Wink

Checked out Sunn O)))) on Spotify too. I'm pretty open to anything when it comes to music, but not sure these guys are going to be my cup of tea... still, at least I can add 'drone metal' to the list of genres I know exist I guess!

With all due respect to both bands, I think it's safe to predict that there will be an exchange of seats at the intermission between those there for Magma and those who are there for Sunn O))))  I don't doubt some will also be there for both bands - they do indeed have my sincere admiration.

For myself, I'm hoping Magma will be on first - I will most likely make a run for Magma merch table (if there is such a thing) before the druids of drone metal emerge and turn up their amps...

Big smile

Welcome to the forum Angus! Hope you can make it to our beautiful city to see Magma - bear in mind that the WOMADelaide world music festival is scheduled for that weekend as well.

Yep, I'm making the pilgrimage to Adelaide from Melbourne with my mate Harry (Prog Archives member Stratcat) in March, can't wait.

I noticed Sunn O)))) are doing Melbourne side-shows, but sadly not the mighty Magma, so no choice but to make the several hours drive. Still, good music, a road trip =

Thanks! We're going to add a couple of days each side of the concert and hopefully check out a little bit of Adelaide/SA too - with WOMADelaide on, should probably start looking for accom now, too.... Smile

I love MAGMA, I like SUNN O)))- I wouldn't mind seeing both! SUNN O))) could be a nice meditative prelude to the intensity of MAGMA...

I really want to know too and I bet we're not the only ones either.

Well, I've looked as many places on the web as I could think including the Facebook pages of both bands - found nothing about the running order for the Adelaide concert. The masters of Kobaļan and the masters of drone metal are "co-headliners".

I rang Thebarton Theatre today and asked them - they didn't know (yet), and suggested I ring back Thursday this week when they will probably be able to tell me. (I will indeed do that).

My guess is Magma on stage first, only based on the assumptions that:
- SUNN O))) might have a higher profile (at least amongst the metal fraternity...) so are more likely to be "headliners"?
- SUNN O))) are described elsewhere as performing with extreme volume and so might be assumed to finish the night off? Assuming at least some members of the audience will be there to see both bands and would likely be deafened by the monks of drone if they played first...

They are both reasonable assumptions I think but still just a guess...

Please, if anyone knows the expected running order, post here and let us know...

Smile

If it is SUNN O))) on first, you'll find me out at the bar, I'll be the guy in the Magma t-shirt... LOL

I'd rather Magma go first as well, then my mate and I can do a runner! Going to be pretty cranky after the 8 hour drive from Melbourne to get there!
