Oh that's called moshing a.k.a. body surfing. Not something I'd recommend for newbie concert-goers. Actually not something I'd recommend, period. You won't find any of that here in M'sia, I don't think. Not so sure about S'pore but I don't think they do too much of that over there either.

You'd do good to go early...as in several hours early to get yourself a decent spot to watch from, for park concerts at least. Bring a lot of water, too. A few bottles should suffice. And if you have one of those mini battery operated fans, then you'd do good to bring that, too (along with spare batts, of course). If not, just bring one of those manual ones that satay sellers use. I'm sure you know what mean. Towels would also be good to wipe sweat off with and you could bring some extra to sit on for the long wait. Sunnies and possibly a hat or a cap, too, should the day be a shunshiney happy one. And to help you get by the long hours, an ipod (or whatever other mp3 player you might own), a PSP, a gameboy advance or a nintendo ds (or all) will be useful. If you don't have any of those, then a book should do the job as well. Or you could talk to your mom.

You might also want to bring some snacks to get rid of those pesky hunger pangs.

And don't forget to bring a camera and a copy of their CD for, you know, the off-chance that they might hold an autographing session for the poor, deprived SEA fans. You never know. It's better to bring then to regret later, isn't it?

omg! vspirit you sound SOOOO prepared! you've been doing this a lot, haven't you? haha. the only stuff i normally bring to concerts are.. well, myself, a bag with my handphone and wallet.. and uhh... thats it. no fans, no water, no tissuepapers, nothing. not even a camera (which i regretted). but i regretted not bringing a water bottle cause i bought a bottle of water for like, 3 bucks at SP's concert. what a ripoff.

but if you have to bring all that.. means you have to bring a big bag in right? i thought they dont allow that? and wouldnt it be so troublesome if you wanna jump to the songs and stuff with a bag on your back? it would be flinging here and there and stuff.. lol.

and er.. i doubt my mum would let.. cause its a schoolday and all. but there's no harm in trying i guess! its just.. i have no idea how to bring up the subject and i doubt she'd wanna go with me anyway cause she doesnt have a pasport.. and she doesnt really like travelling. she'd quite old-fashioned actually. typical housewife kinda mum

oh and uh, muse_music, i think we';re the only ones studying here.. and npoe i'm from KL, but my hometown is in Johor! haha. but i rarely go back there to visit my grandma though.

haha,you seem to attend a rock festival instead of a concert.hehe.coz i did it when i was in rock festivals we even had tents,but i mean in China.
here in singapore,you can chat with each other during the wait.and you'll find time passes really fast.sometimes they may do soundcheck when you're queuing.Good Charlotte did it anyways.

*lol* too true. that's basically what i had with me when i hit BDO '00. I'm under the impression that most concerts held in parks would require that as well xD especially if you're planning on queueing early. the ones in the stadium are another thing altogether. for that i'd just bring myself, my cell and my cash, not so different from deb. possibly a water bottle as well so i don't have to get ripped off, unlike deb (sorry deb!!! xDD).

and deb, when you said SP, my first instinct was to be very , very jealous of you, and if you've seen them in concert, that'd mean you must've been very, very, young, which doubled up my envy. then it occured to me that the SP you're talking about is probably different from the one i'm thinking of so...well, my envy deflated pretty quickly after that revelation, you might say. xxD

hey, hey, welcome to the jungle =D

well, it all depends on how easily i can get em ticks but worse comes to worse, like i said, i suppose i can just buy them online, which sales start at approx 9a.m. tomorrow. But i'm not gonna say I'm absolutely going til i get em tickets in hand, if you get my drift.

EDIT: Oh and muse_music, looks like you're in luck. You're about six years over the age limit, tho I'm sure your mom'll still insist on accompanying you...which is a great thing in and on itself. Cos there's a high chance that she could be brainwa---uh, converted into liking the band after having seen them live.

EDIT2: and if i'm going...that'd mean the earliest i can start queueing up at the venue is...2p.m., since i'll probably only be leaving KL at 8a.m...guh...and not to mention i've gotta go grab lunch and stuff...T.T

okaaaay...so i went ahead and jumped off the pan without giving myself too much time to think. actually i think i actively avoided thinking at all and now...now, there's no going back.

i'm not sure i should be jumping with joy or kicking myself but i suppose i'm a little happy...

...yeah, i went and bought two this morning. i can't really feel the weight of my wallet now . i'm almost certain it's worth it tho i prolly won't know til after the show itself.

it's ironic how the situation has turned out cos i was the one most vehemently against going all the way there. but something about this particular show, possibly the nature of how it's planned, calls to me. maybe it's the semi-impromptuness of it all...

and well, i suppose it's safe to say now i'm definitely going, tickets in hand and all.

hiya muse_music, welcome back. how'd i know? why, simple, i found out via the event details available on the sistic page. =). hope you can make it there.

crazy_mary: you know, i really like your handle. there's just something awfully...quaint...about it.

i bought them via the ticketing agent at kl sentral. didn't bother to book via the intarweb cos of certain reasons. smooth transaction it was too. it was over all too soon. they had tickets for phantom of the opera available there too but it's all in singapore. damn, they really do get all the good stuff down south, don't they?

i'm gonna be going with another friend of mine who's not really a huge fan but is curious and tasteful enough to want to see the band live. he's the sort who likes to experience all sorts of new things, especially when they come with good publicity. and of course, you're welcome to come along, if you don't mind tagging along with perfect strangers, that is =)

EDIT: and uh, something you said earlier just occured to me. yeah blame it on my slow processing time, my brain's permanently stuck at 64MB ram...anyway, it's about the passport bit. i actually don't have mine ready cos it's just expired, haha. I figured I'd just get the tickets and worry about the details later. i'll prolly only get it renewed early Jan. i initially wanted to renew it sometime in april or may, in time for a trip to japan I've been planning to maybe take but thanks to this, I've gotta bring that particular plan of mine forward a bit. passport renewal...that's gonna cost me another RM300 in monetary casualty. Le sigh.

i dont mind following u vspirit.. strangers?? c'mon we're malaysians.. hehhe. dont worry bout pasport, it's 300 for 5 years. so if muse is coming 2 thailand or other SEA countries that 300 ringgit is worth it.my pasport is still valid and i can definitely go to KL sentral 2 buy d tickets but i'm just worried bout work n no friends 2 go wif. am trying to beg a friend of mine to come wif me but just can't get out of work on the 16th n 17th... u noe, i should b like u.. dont think 2 much and just do it!!

hello!! sorry for the lack of replies.. got too caught up with work and musechat.mu.. hehe. anyway, omg vspirit you got the tickets already?! i'm gonna ask my friend who's off to Singapore tomorrow for holiday to get it for me since i got my mum's permission.. woohooooo but i sense trouble ahead. she's so fickle minded she'd probably change her mind a month or a few weeks before the gig. plus, her exact words were "i'm okay with it.. but ask your father la." and i'm scared of my dad... er. yeah.

and you know what sucks? i might not have anyone to go with! and if that happens, i guess i wont be going then.. which is really extremely gay. i'm begging my friends to go with me now and they're all "see first la.. got school la.." and stuff like that. its so gay i tell you.

You know, I was actually all set on going alone. I didn't bother begging, cos the very act itself is disheartening to me, no matter their reply, and I really don't find the idea of other people disheartening me from something I truly desire very appealing, no matter how unintended it is. And no matter how good a friend they are, they're outsiders when it comes to certain desires of my heart. And in knowing that I still persist, then it serves me right to be disheartened, isn't it? So might as well not bother at all. Persuade? Hah, don't give me that bullshit. This might come off as harsh, but I seriously don't have time for it.

You see, some of my friends, they're into a different scene altogether so I guess I've got no business asking them in the first place but some of them, they actually do like what they hear but just couldn't be bothered enough to see for their own eyes and to that I say, "Hey, it's your loss. It's no skin off my nose."

This friend of mine, I only happened to ask in passing. I sent him a text msg the day I found out asking if he wanted to join and some relevant info a couple of days later when he asked. Then I left him alone for another couple of days til yesterday night before I set out to buy the tickets. I sent him a short text msg again asking for his final decision cos I needed to know whether to buy his ticket for him or not and he merely went, "Sure, why not. Let's go." The answer seemed rather nonchalant and flippant to me so I asked him again if he's sure cos RM194 is a little too pricey for an experimental experience (in his case), and not to mention the bus fare to and fro and some travelling expense we're gonna have to set aside for while we're in Singapore. In fact, to a third person watching, it might even seem more like I was trying to dissuade him last night but I really wanted him to be sure and didn't want him to blame me should he have second thoughts later (tho i wouldn't worry about him having regrets after seeing the show). He said something along the lines of, "Yes. I'm sure. No second thoughts. I'm in. I wanna go."

Can't say I'm not glad with his answer cos those hours of waiting won't be as easy to pass without company but if that's how it's going to be, I'm all prepared to face it. xD He's the only one I bothered to ask anyway cos knowing his character, it's really a 50/50 thing with him, which is a far better probabibility than some of the people I know who actually claim they've heard of MUSE and liked what they heard. And that's already a lot more than what my friend claims. He thinks they're talented and that's bout it. But he appreciates talent and for what it's worth, I rather think that's enough.

Then again, he always falls hook, line and sinker for most of the things I've introduced him to so far be it anime, manga or music. I guess he trusts my tastes. Heck, even my mom thinks they're talented from just listening to Space Dementia. She never really said anything about other bands I listen to before, other than to state that most of them are ear-splittingly loud and promptly wrote me off as a lost cause who'd probably lose my hearing by the time I turn 30...xxxD And then she turns around and, together with my dad, buys me an iPod for my birthday to which, of course, she constantly complains about my listening to it too loud. I don't think I'll ever get that woman...but that's what I love about her.

And...I digress. Sorry about that.

So hey, if you can't find anyone to go with, you can come with my friend and I. You too, Deb. That'd make four of us, the more the merrier. I'd have to meet you first, though, because I'm gonna need your share of the dosh beforehand to buy your bus ticket for you. ^_~

BTW, is your name really Mary and how old are you? Cos if you're a minor, and you're serious about going, chances are your folks are gonna want to meet us, or at least, me. And if that's what it takes for you to be able to go, I'll gladly go through their grilling xxD. Small price to pay for someone who wants to experience MUSE, to be able to experience MUSE, if you ask me. But then that's only possible if you live around the KL or Klang Valley area. Anyway, if you do, on both counts, just say the word. That goes the same for you too, Deb, and I'm very sure you, at least, are a minor. One thing tho, Deb, we're not planning on staying at a hotel or whatnot. You'll have time to wait around to try to catch a glimpse of them after the show, sure, since the bus we're intending to take only leaves at 8am earliest, but we're not planning on putting up anywhere for the night. We'd prolly just sit around whatever all nite cafe that's around the vicinity of where we'll board--HarbourFront, which, I might add, is only a mere six MRT stations away from the concert venue =).

EDIT: Oh and DEB, you can actually buy the ticket yourself right here in KL. Just go to Holiday Tours and Travel Sdn. Bhd. in the KL Sentral arrival hall. They're KL's only Sistic agent. I bought mine from there.
