11 Things That Flogs Do At Concerts That Shit Us To Tears

Here are the people to avoid next time you're at a live gig.

Some people have no idea what live music is about.

Keep a careful lookout for any of them at your next show...

11. Flogs Who Watch The Concert Through Their Phone

We just don't get it. Live music is meant to be experience LIVE. Not when your on the train the next day showing a friend on a six-inch screen.



10. The Flogs Who Made Up The Rule That You Can Only Buy 4 Beers At A Time

Here at Triple M we're all for responsible drinking, but when your at a concert you need to keep a few in reserve... and sometimes four just doesn't cut it.

More than 200 people are working to get the massive stage ready for Saturday's concert.

 

The Rolling Stones have unveiled their MASSIVE stage at Adelaide Oval just days before they kick off their Australian tour.

Production manager Dale Skjerseth - who has been involved with the band since 1994 - says it takes a lot of work to get everything perfect. 

"We’ll be up to around 200 (people) working today, tomorrow, up to the prep for the show and then of course the building will expand. Security ushers, and all the rest of the staff will come in," Dale said on Wednesday afternoon.

"It’s a well oiled machine but we all have to get the joints moving."

Dale says the crew won’t know the specifics of the set list until moments before the show starts.

"They’ve been rehearsing so many songs, we really don’t know what it’s going to be… Of course there will be the favourites and the things added in and stuff they haven’t done,"

"They look back at what they did before years ago when they played here. They think about it and it’s just gotten better every time they’ve gone out."

Promoter Tony Cochrane also confirmed that Jimmy Barnes will be healthy enough to support the Stones after the Cold Chisel singer underwent back surgery last month.

The as yet unnamed new album will follow on from their 10th studio LP, 2011's I'm With You.

In the interview Flea said, "We are nearly finished writing. We’ll go in the studio sometime in the next couple of months."

He also described it as "super danceable, funky shit and some real introspective, pretty stuff. It feels good, man, and it’s fun to play it."

It's looking like they plan to be finished, with the album released and out touring by this time next year.

The people of Moline in Illinois were treated to a very special Pearl Jam performance the other night.

Not only did they perform their 1996 album No Code in full, Eddie Vedder and the band also wrote and performed a brand new track "Moline".

As Vedder explained they wrote the track before the show, "It literally was written about 10 minutes…it was finished right before we came out here."

He also said that the song was related to their cult classic track "Better Man".

From all reports this has been one of the most unique PJ performances in recent memory, you can see some footage of the show below.

Sometimes video opportunities just present themselves... Phil Rudd playing our AC/DC pinball machine.

Earlier, AC/DC's management confirmed that Malcolm Young had left the band, due to a serious illness.

"Malcolm is suffering from dementia and the family thanks you for respecting their privacy," Malcolm's family told New York's People magazine.

While a statement on the band's official website read: "Unfortunately, due to the nature of Malcolm's condition, he will not be returning to the band."

The news comes off the back of AC/DC announcing their brand new album Rock or Bust is out on December 2. And a world tour in support of the album is to follow.

Malcom Young's nephew Stevie Young (pictured above) played on the album and will tour with the band in Malcolm's place.

Listen to the Grunge veterans brand new album in full

In a Triple M Music Jury Exclusive, Bush and Gavin Rossdale have released a brand new album. It's called Man On The Run and it's out October 24. Listen to the album stream below.

This will be the band's 6th studio album. The first single is called "The Only Way Out", and we think it's a killer track featuring all the hallmarks of a Bush song.

The album was recorded at Dave Grohl's Studio 606 with Grammy-winning producer Nick Raskulinecz (who's done stuff with Foo Fighters and Alice In Chains to name a few ).

It's their first album since 2011's The Sea Of Memories and 20 years since their mega-selling debut album Sixteen Stone, which contained some little songs like "Comedown", "Glycerine" and "Everything Zen"!

Triple M premiered the new Foo Fighters song today, called "Something From Nothing" which is the first real taste of the Fooies eighth studio album, Sonic Highways. You can hear snippets of the new song in the video above.

Triple M's Head of Rock, Shaun VanGough said, "I’m as pumped as a dog with 5 tails about this new Fooeys album! I love the idea around pairing a TV rockumentary with its release.

"They’re not the kind of band to leave anything to chance. Everything is planned and executed meticulously with focus & deliberateness.

"They’re always up for challenging how they do things and that’s why in my view they’re the world’s greatest rock band. Sonic Highways will be the next killer chapter in their evolution - that’s why I’m excited!"

Pumped?
