Eh I'm reconsidering now - it'll cost me an arm and a leg in flights but I probably owe it to myself to see them play for old times sake.

Cynic - I was curious myself. I checked out the Brisbane Entertainment webiste and they say they are 100 to 150.

I imagine that all the shows should be the same.
