Perth Arena – Paramore Concert

Had an opportunity to get tickets to our suite at Perth Arena to see Paramore, they sounded vaguely familiar but wasn’t sure where I heard of them from but figured if nothing else it was a chance to get out of the house and do something different. Sadly the S4 when zoomed in doesn’t really do so crash hot on photos however the video came out pretty well. Unfortunately whatever encoding Facebook uses turns the video somewhat blocky the original source at least looks quite good and I was really surprised how it looks at 1080p on a big screen monitor.

Overall as far as live performances goes it was actually pretty good. There are many bands which whilst sounds great in a studio really suck at singing live, or those that do sound decent live have virtually no audience participation in the show. There was a reasonable amount of participation in a lot of the songs, and with one of them an audience member got to come up on stage and sing with them. One thing that definitely earnt them points in my book was the message at the end of that song when the girl went back to the audience. You all should have one of these; You all have a voice and you deserve to be heard, don’t let anybody tell you differently.

A lot of people tend to just go with the status quo in society today, too afraid to speak up against things; or not wanting to rock the boat. In the end it is up to each of us to stand up and be counted when things take place around us that are not right and it is possible for one person to make a difference as has been highlighted over the last 50 years in the global society.

Show finished a bit after 11 and there didn’t seem to be many taxi’s around so thankfully there was only a five minute wait until a train back down to my area so I caught that; Down side being the buses don’t run that late in my area so I had a 4km walk home from the train station at about 12:15am however the world around us rarely disappoints and there was a beautiful full moon out and plenty of stars for me to gaze upon and dream about for the walk, was pretty tired so my pace wasn’t the best but at least it only took 5 minutes extra compared to normal getting me home at 1am.

All in all a pretty decent night out.

      Yeah, death and taxes are the two certainties in life as they say.

      Mortality is a bitch however imagine the worlds population if we were all immortal it would be somewhat concerning within two generations.
