At around 6 pm last night I got offered a free ticket to the AC/DC concert. I paused to consider my options. Either I could be responsible and finish the report I was working on, and also write my weekly NBR column (due in by 7 am Friday) or I could go to the concert.
I pause and convince myself that I can get home by midnight and write my column then, and dive into my bedroom to hunt out a black t-shirt!
Never has Thorndon had so many bogans pass through it! I was not surprised to see Paula Bennett entering the grounds!
The UNITE union was outside trying to get people to sign their petition for the minimum wage to go to $15 an hour. One of them recognised me and asked me to sign. My response was that they should tell Matt McCarten to stop campaigning for measures that will destroy his own members jobs!
The crowd warms up to Shihad.
And then the main event! They rocked even though Angus Young stripping off reminded me a bit of a scene from the Love Actually movie
A concert goer who has found a cheap bed for the night!
We left around midnight. Of course the sensible thing at this stage would have been to head home and write my column. But when people say that magic word – Hummingbird – I can never resist. So down to Courtney Place we went.
I finally got home at 2 am. Set my alarm clock for 4 am, and luckily did not sleep through it. Two hours later at 6 am, I file my NBR column with an hour to spare!Tags: DPF
