It's the evening of my 65th birthday and I'm sitting here (in Chester, England) listening to Powderfinger tracks on Spotify and reflecting what an absolute tragedy it is that such a collective of virtuosos are no longer together and producing more phenomenal music. I had heard the odd track by the band (My Happiness, Lost And Running ….) during visits to relatives in Australia/New Zealand in 2006 and 2009 but the sounds were lost in all the great Aussie/Kiwi music I had never heard before. However on my next trip down under, in March of this year, I “discovered” Hotel Existence on the Quantas London/Singapore flight and was blown away. I managed to buy that album and Odyssey No 5 while down there (and even visited Byron Bay while on the Gold Coast) but have been unable to track down any other albums or DVD since returning home. To make matters worse, I wont be back for another 18 months so will have to rely on overseas mail to complete my catalogue. The bitterest pill to swallow is that I'll never see the band live. I trust this note helps to demonstrate that great music is ageless and an old rocker like me, raised on Rolling Stones, Pink Floyd, Led Zeppelin and Big Country (to mention a few favourites over the years) can still appreciate artists from the other side of the world when they make such a magnificent and inspirational sound. Belated thanks fellas and please take pity on an old timer and do it all again one more time and I'll be on the first plane down.

Saturday's concert was just amazing and brilliant and it was a beautiful congregation of music, love and peace. It was breathtakingly amazing. The music was just wonderful as always and I thank-you Powderfinger for making such inspiring and just great music!

Hello Ms F,
just curious because i would have bought it for sure, but why was the last concert in Brisbane not released on disc the same as the other 3 concerts were? itunes only for some reason & ive heard it was edited?
