    Preferred entertainment

    I'm not in the Wolfmother demographic but I did appreciate the "vibe" if not the volume.

    That got me thinking, which band would I prefer? Trouble is, most of the ones that come to mind have members that are either decrepit, demented or dead. Arguably The Rolling Stones fit all three categories (Keith Richard being proof there is life after death).

    I was going to suggest Daddy Cool, but since the loss of the great Ross Hannaford I doubt they'll be back.

    So I thought I'd kick off a new thread for suggestions. So who's got any ideas?

    Difficult to think of a band (or even a type of music) who everyone will enjoy.

    Maybe you want a wedding/covers style band who can play tunes to get the crowd singing along; as when two of the players on the screen were singing Country Road very badly and everyone joined in - partly to drown out the noise!

    I think they should have some brass and a drum where Wolfmother were, all game. Like the wildcats in 1987 with Cal Bruton, James Crawford etc

    I think with a band like Wolfmother, or similar, its attracting people who wouldnt come to Rugby.

    Its the whole entertainment experience.

    we go to the rugby because we love Rugby.

    Minderoo are trying to find a larger audience

    I guess

    Perth bands like Birds of Tokyo, Karnivool, Eskimo Joe, End of Fashion, Katy and Luke Steele or Aussie bands like Gyroscope, Butterfly Effect, Pnau etc. Plenty of Aussie bands out there. Personally I'd like to see Parkway Drive but they might be a bit heavy for some people.

    I thought there might of been Wolfmother fans buying tickets but there were not many that gave them a second glance from what i saw. I think the wedding band idea is a great one. Smashing out all the party anthems.

    some people over 50 would consider Wolfmother pretty heavy too.

    Yep all good suggestions.

    Jebediah, powderfinger (if u could get em back together). There are plenty.

    I wouldnt mind seeing The Butterfly Effect perform, I reckon they could get the crowd going!

    .....friend of mine has a theory about Keith. God is such a big Stones fan that he has arranged it so that every living day he (the friend) has lost to smoking has been donated to Kieth Richards..

    Been a fan of Wolfmother for a while and was more than happy to see/hear them live. I do like the idea of having a small brass band through out the game as long as they don’t play while the game is on! During injury breaks no problem while the ball is being moved around the paddock “big problem”

    So much for X's theory.
    I thought they were pretty good. But for auld fart who listens to the Gunners, Metallica, Def Leopard etc. Spose that's expected. Like I said last night I think the lead fella sounds a lot like Robert Plant.
