It's Alive!!! Now I Know What God Feels Like!!!

It's open!!! Incredible. After all this time the new Adelaide airport is finally open for business. It seems like only five months ago that we attended the opening day. And not before time too - the old one is seriously ready for demolition.

We had the misfortune to spend about 90 minutes there on New Years Eve sending my mother off back home to Brisneyland.

Due to a colossal fuck-up most of the tickets were sold to scalpers via U2's own site before they went on sale (seemingly standard procedure for the band these days if reports about the poor allocation for European/USA tickets are anything to go by) and tickets have been fetching a premium ever since. I've bid on a few on eBay and I made a run at two general admission tickets early last week.

Then, this Friday, a bomb dropped. Bass announced that they were selling general admission tickets for $99 a pop. Suddenly there were a run of ads in the Advertiser and the usual wankers on eBay from people trying desperately to off-load their surplus tickets for up to $250 a shot. $250 for a ticket I can wander down to the local Bass o…
