    Sidney Myer Music Bowl - Melbourne. 
    Glorious night here. Spoon supporting. 🤘
    I’m on a small patch of grass known as the terrace between the seating and lawn sections.

    Awesome show, my first time seeing WoD. And they didn’t disappoint! Adam was actually sick but to be honest I couldn’t tell until he mentioned it. The weather was on point which helped create a really relaxed atmosphere and everyone just seemed to be chilling and enjoying the tunes with a few cold beers and other beverages. Great set with every track a highlight. The band is so tight! A lot of love for the sax player! And the crowd let him know!

    Songs played: (not in order but fairly close and maybe missing one or two). 
    Old Skin
    Pain
    An Ocean Between the Waves
    I Don’t Wanna Wait
    Strangest Thing
    Red Eyes
    Eyes to the Wind
    Harmonia’s Dream
    Under the Pressure
    Living Proof
    Don’t live Here Anymore
    Occasional Rain

    Awesome set!  I do wish they’d break up the “I Don’t Wanna Wait/Victim” battery.  Those songs are a little same, sonically, in my opinion.

    After the opening excitement of the first four songs Victim did feel like a little bit of flat spot at spot 5. It picked up again from there and never let up. One gem after another.
