This is Hardcore: Pulp are coming to Melbourne!

Dr Jarvis Cocker and I, December 2009

Presale tickets for Pulp’s Melbourne & Sydney shows went on sale at 9am today, and I’m pretty excited to say that I booked a pair for myself and Glenn.  Don’t worry if you missed out this morning, though – sales open to the general public [through Ticketmaster] first thing tomorrow.

Pulp are one of those bands that I’d just accepted that I’d never be able to see live.  I missed out when I was younger [last time they came down under I was about ten years old], and by the time I realised what a great group they actually were, they’d disbanded.  Even when they announced their return to the European festival circuit late last year, I didn’t imagine that they’d make it all the way to Australia.  But, here they come!

I saw Jarvis Cocker a couple of years ago, touring his Further Complications album.  While he put on an excellent show [he likes to single out people in the audience, and dedicate entire songs to them – it’s quite intimidating], all I wanted was to hear some Pulp.  And this is my chance!

Pulp will be playing at Festival Hall on July 29th.
