I actually really like "On My Way to Work".
Sign of a good and interesting album when people's opinions are so varied song to song
Maybe it was released a few days earlier here in Oz as some form of tokenism to compensate for the fact he hasnt played here since '93!
Get here Macca!
Maybe if he occasionally toured here that may help with charts.
Have we pissed him off here or something.
Weird that he is a prolific tourer and hasn't graced our shores since 93
New given good reviews in the Australian and Adveriser (South Aust paper). Both 4/5 stars.
Lot of other big names like The Stones and Springsteen touring Australia next year - lets hope MAcca follows their lead.
its getting beyond a joke
have we pissed him off somehow?
is there another reason we dont know about as to why he cancelled shows here in 2002 as well? I know the Bali bombings were thrown up at the time as the reason but I dont buy it..
Just come off seeing the rolling Stones in front of 54000 people at the new Adelaide Oval which is truly a world class venue.
If its good enough for the Stones to do an Aussie tour then its good enough for MAcca.
I actually emailed Barrie Marshall about all this and much to my pleasant surprise, I got a response from him.
Unfortunately his responses werent too hopeful:
"We are always looking at a way to play in Australia but time is a problem. We are hoping this may change in the coming years."
and then this:
"Thank you for your response and I appreciate your comments. Paul would love to play Australia so let?s just see what may be in the future."
I think there may be more chance of him playing on the moon than here in Oz.
Emails were from 1st December
I am from Australia and because he doesnt look like coming here i went to vegas and saw both shows in 2005.
Loved his stage entrance to Magical Mystery Tour and Maybe I'm Amazed live is awesome - so much better than the studio recording.
But yea Please Please Me and Bathroom window were highlights.
