Alice was working on reception all day, so me and Dane headed down to the Tanks Art Centre without her, as he wanted to go get his ticket sooner rather than later, as he had lost his I.D. and thought he'd need it to collect it. He was worried that he'd have to get his pregnant sister (who is about to pop any day now) who brought the tickets to come down, but the only hitch was that the security guard didn't stamp his wrist saying his I.D. had been checked, although he still got an 18+ wrist band anyway. It was surreal being at a concert surrounded in exotic and tropical trees! The first support act, Zennith Boyz, was a trio of aboriginals, including one didgeridoo player, which was really cool to get to see as a part of a band, especially as now I've been told that the breathe in through their nose and out through their mouth (try it- it seems impossible!). Another interesting fact about didgeridoos is that they are hollowed out by termites. The second support act, Natalie Pa'apa'a, was three girls, also aboriginal, who were also really good- they kind of reminded me of Ms Dynamite. Alice got here by this point. Julian Marley seemed to be a bit shy- he kept holding his hand over his eyes- but still put on a good show. As expected, he played a few of Bob's hits.
