Having missed out on Sydney tickets to Radiohead’s first show in almost 10 years, coming to Brisvegas was my only option, but fuck it. It’s Radiohead, a band high on my bucket list. After waiting for what felt like FOREVER, I woke up this morning with a big ass smile on my face. RADIOHEAD DAY! I thought to myself, “what a day, eh Millhouse? The sun is shining, the birds are singing”. It appears I spoke to soon.
Counting down the hours until my flight to Brisbane, Mother Nature had a menopausal fit with torrential hail and rain coming down hard and heavy on my dreams. I then thought to myself, “if my flight is cancelled and I miss Radiohead, I will kill myself. Goodbye sweet world.”
LUCKILY the sun reared her beautiful head and I was back on track… ALMOST. Delayed flights plus an extra half an hour in the air meant I literally made it just in time. BUT I MADE IT!! Despite rumours of a self-indulgent set list, my heart is racing like a bitch as I head to Brisbane Entertainment Centre, because I know whatever Thom does – it will be worth it. Stay tuned for my live updates. WARNING: There will be tears…
