A huge scal concert for absolutely anyone on this board - however many people want to come - and no live stream. It would mean we'd have to find a way of funding everyone's trip, and a way of getting round the carbon emissions issue.

People have been trying to solve that for decades - something's telling me a bunch of eskimos aren't going to have much luck either.

That's the most sensible thing I've heard so far.

And if we do the live stream + concert, maybe there could be some sort of interactive part at the end, so not only the people who could make it could ask questions, and talk to Mr. Damo...

That sucks, that's like watching the four sessions. Great, beautiful show but I wasn't there!

Referring to the lucky 100-200 people thing.

I agree, but do you have a better, more plausible idea?
When I mentioned sense, though, I was reffering more to the location of Damien's choice.

Why oh why in a city? Didnt damien say that it was a breath of fresh air playing in somewhere down to earth like Dingle? do people assume it would be in a city?

Yes, but it's not effective. We have more than 100-200 Eskimos, why should it only be them. Can we all just calm down a little bit until we hear what Damien thinks about this or until we call the tour manager?

I think city was just a figure of speech - I agree it absolutely doesn't need to be a city - but whereever it is, Damien should choose.

Anyways, I didn't intend for this thread to be another discussion about possibilities, it was simply to establish what type of show people would prefer, so maybe we should stick to the original topic for now

Are you going to pay for everyone on this board to go?

as awesome as this idea is, i think logistically and even almost politicaly implausible. how many eskimo's are there? who is to say who should and shouldn't go and based on what criteria? if anything i think we should ask damien.. somehow.

Knives, accorging to the Igloo Statistics (bottom of the main page) we are:

Members: 7,618!!!

But I guess it includes all people that signed up in the last 5 years, even if they haven't visited in the last couple of years. Sometimes I check which members are online, and many days we are 8-10 people at a time, sometimes even just 2-3 pple...

So not sure how many 'effective' members we are!!!!!

I don't think there'd be many more than 500-1000.
