That is fantastic news, thanks for that Robin! You've made my day.

I just ordered my ticket for the Melbourne concert. I've been a huge admirer of his music since my uni days in Sydney about 15 years ago. Everyone else was into grunge and Nirvana and I was discovering John Foxx for the first time.

I really hope he does the Metamatic (& B-sides from that era) set list. It would be a totally orgasmic experience to hear classics such as Mr No, Film One, Glimmer or Swimmer 1 performed live. I believe the music he made in that period hasn't been surpassed by anybody else since.

However I'd be happy just to see the man live. I thought a concert in Australia would never happen.
