Airbourne 2020

SHAKE THAT

Young and wild hard rock’n’roll band Airbourne is fulfilling concert halls all over the world.

They will perform as special guests during Alice Cooper’s tournee in Australia and New Zealand in the beginning of 2020, then play 2 shows in USA and go to Europe with Iron Maiden (some gigs during Legacy of the Beast Tour 2020).

Airbourne is inspired mostly by AC/DC and Motorhead but I hear also musical (only musical) similarity to Motley Crue, Armored Saint and WASP because these old school bands are loud, screaming and kick-ass. It’s all about sex and rock’n’roll.

Airbourne has released five longplays:

– “Runnin Wild” (2007),

– “No Guts, No Glory” (2010),

– “Black Dog Barking” (2013),

– “Breakin Outta Hell” (2016),

– “Boneshaker” (2019).

Current line-up features Joel O’Keeffe (guitars, vocals), Ryan O’Keeffe (drums), Matt Harrison (guitars), Justin Street (bass).

BOOGIE

Airbourne was created in 2003 in Warrnambool, town in south east Australia, around 250-300 kilometers west from Melbourne.

People living there enjoy access to nice Logan Beach with opportunity to watch whales each year between June and September. They can also practice water sports in AquaZone (the largest facility in South West Victoria).

Later Airbourne decided to move to Melbourne. While Angus Young from AC/DC is known with his habit to drink ten cups of tea each day (sometimes he chooses chocolate milk instead), Melbourne is the world capital of coffee. I just see Joel O’Keeffe running on scene and wonder how many cups of coffee he used to drink each day? 😉

BARCELONA

Barcelona, Spain, Fountain, Water, Drops, Sun, Summer

Musictivity wouldn’t be complete without mentioning Barcelona, the capital of Catalan. There are at least few reasons why this city is so popular among tourists:

– beaches,

– mountains,

Catalonia’s Most Emblematic Mountains

– cuisine,

Traditional food in Barcelona: typical Catalan dishes

– nightlife,

– football,

– architecture.

The cap’s a bangin’ on the door
But up here there’s no law
We got an endless mini bar
There’s a television on the sqad car
We’re mixing sugar and spice

GET AROUND

There are thousands of Blogs and Websites which describe Barcelona better than I ever could. I’m not even sure if the list above is complete – it could include long Barcelona’s history or something.

Barcelona was the first holidays destination in my life. I’d a pleasure to spend there first half of March 2017.

I’m traveling constantly from this time! Ten visited country only in 2019!

Now is December 2019 and I’m already keeping in my mailbox 8 plane tickets and hotel reservations in Athens and Barcelona (again), but at the same time I’m certain that my May of 2020 will belong to Asia: Philippines (I have family in Philippines), Thailand and something else (would prefer Japan and South Korea but if my family won’t get VISA, we will go somewhere else like Malaysia, Indonesia, Vietnam).

The point is that experienced travelers develop skills which allow them to travel smarter.

I can really see strong difference between my preparations, tools which I know and use, habits during journey in March 2017 and December 2019. I would call it a competence to get around unknown cities.

You are welcome to e-mail me poblak@europe.com or leave a comment below this article. Ask whatever you want, I will try to give you the best answer as I can.

Oftentimes, my friends get links from me to articles which answer on their questions and reduce uncertainty. I can even make special research for you and publish the result in form of separate article (as I’ve made regarding Arnhem and Oslo – look at category “travel” in menu).

However, I hope that you will find the most basic and available info in Google on your own. Big advantage of traveling is that you learn self-organization along the way. Links inside Musictivity’s shop are good to start.

https://musictivity.org/2019/11/10/shop/

Get access to best on-line hotel browser, exciting guide trips selection, largest store with official and licensed merch, most reliable ticket retailer just in one place!

I can completely understand if you are not ready to travel because I also wasn’t before March 2017. Fortunately, you don’t need to pay for watching Barcelona!

I would like to add at the end that hopefully Aussie from Airbourne will have fun in Barcelona and other visited cities. Europe is friendly, compact and widely open for you!
