      PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE organise some sideshows – one in Melbourne is a must!

    12. John Fowler says:

      I’m hoping for sideshows too…Adelaide would be ideal & Melbourne would be a nice bonus.

    13. I just found out the other day that you’ll be over here in Oz. Beside myself with joy. I don’t usually see bands but you have been the staple of my musical diet since I was introduced to your music 12 years ago and there is no way in hell I would miss show. 7.5 months is such a long time to wait. I do hope you make a habit of coming here more often :)

      The last (only) concert was awesome!

    15. Peta says:

      Please please play your own concerts in addition to the festival!
      I have been so looking forward to seeing you, but im never in the states when you are playing…..
      Please please play in Sydney!!!!

    16. Saw you guys in 2005 at what I still believe is the greatest line up of bands in Bluesfest history. Please do some side shows. Adelaide would be amazing but Melbourne will do as well.

    17. Wayne Morris says:

    21. Melbourne side show please! <3 I've been waiting forever for this, but I'm definitely going to try my best to catch you at Bluesfest!
