Hey Shanocles!

I'm still trying to work out a proper estimate of how many people were there, but I've reviewed the concert over on this thread:

Goblin - live Melbourne Town Hall 21-11-2012

and since then, I've come across several videos people shot of the concert on their phones, some of which show the crowd, so you might get a better idea from that! I've posted Youtube links on that page too, as well as some of my own fairly rubbish photos.

I thought there would be some more proper photos/review popping up on the net by now, but so far very few!

Claudio mostly played on his bank of keyboards, but went up to the organ for about three tracks on and off. He even joked something like `see you in ten minutes' because of the time it took to travel from the stage up to the organ!

Nice to see you there man! Had a blast, that organ was mind blowing.

Anyway, I'm off to work with approximately 0 hours sleep. Til next time!

GOBLIN - Melbourne Town Hall, Melbourne, Australia - November 21st 2012

Melbourne Town Hall's Grand Organ is the most complex, thunderingly loud natural instrument in Melbourne. And for one night only, it will belong to prog-horror legends Goblin.

Goblin will be employing the Grand Organ to perform a set of their most famous and revered soundtrack work. Awe-inspiring, overwhelming and chilling, this is how the music of Goblin was meant to be heard.

Support:
Thematica, feat. members of Midnight Juggernauts plus Timothy J Hoey (Cut Copy), Gus (Architecture in Helsinki), Evelyn Morris (Pikelet), Shags (Lost Animal, Brous) and more guests to be announced, bring to life grand musical interpretations of iconic film and soundtrack works. Traversing Phillip Glass, John Carpenter and beyond, Thematica will re-imagine these artists' significant film scores on a large scale.

Rounding out the bill will be local heavyweights The Night Terrors, with their dark synth dreamscapes and other-worldly electronica.

Supported by Mess+Noise and Triple R.


Location:
Melbourne Town Hall, 100 Swanston Street, Melbourne VIC 3000

Date & times: 21/11/2012, Wednesday: 8pm - till late.


Price: Full price tickets $40. On the door $50 Transaction and booking fees may apply

********

I'm all set and ready! Anyone else planning on going?

Damn sure hope they play some of one of my all-time favourite prog albums `Roller'!
