JJ Reviews the Final Big Day Out

Gin Wigmore 
JJ Reviews the Final Big Day Out

Auckland 20 January, Mount Smart Stadium, Auckland, NZ

Well, the 2012 BDO turned out to be the final Auckland one as the economics of the event were no longer there. The immediate response to that was book better bands.....

This year the BDO organisers changed things up by reducing the main stages to only one with a second, smaller stage for 'in between' acts. This was an epic fail and totally ruined the feel and vibe of the event when compared to past years. Living End aside, there were no truly quality bands until  Kasabian, Soundgarden and Noel Gallagher made their mark on the day. This is not to say other bands like Cage the Elephant weren't great, it was more of where's the bands like New Order, Placebo, Rage Against the Machine, Marilyn Manson and Nine Inch Nails also on the set to support Soundgarden on the mainstage??

Here's my thoughts on the bands I saw:




  •  Soundgarden - loved them - they played a greatest hits package with a few less well known songs. Kym got all the right notes, Cornell was in fine form, that drummer from Pearl Jam was stonkin' and the bass was heavy as a rock to your head.
  • Kasabian - never listened to their music before but they sounded like they were the business. The crowd loved them and they had a sweet sound. 
  • Noel Gallagher's High Flying Birds - Noel was the reason why I went to BDO and I went home a happy man. He played a good mix of Oasis and solo songs in his set but the inclusion of three b-sides was enough to make this fan die happy.
  • My Chemical Romance - I love these little fuckers (despite their emo tag) it was a real shame they had terrible sound. The Black Parade was a real highlight. 
  • Cage The Elephant - nice, fiesty band from Kentucky. Played their guts out - sounds like they had some tunes I'd better check out!
  • Gin Wigmore - she's got the sass and the tunes to back it up. Like MCR she suffered a terrible sound mix. Her cover of The Animal's House of the Rising Sun was a most bizzare thing but it kind of worked, and at the least was a performance that will stick out in the memory.
  • Unknown Mortal Orchestra - saw one song and they were shit. The Mint Chicks should never have broken up.
  • Battles - Saw two songs, they had a damn good groove going on. 
  • Cut Off Your Hands - who the fuck booked this band?
  • Mariachi El Bronx - who the fuck booked a Mariachi band? Completely the wrong music for a main stage BDO band but the lead singer was entertaining and the music sound good. 
  • Beastwars - utter fucking rubbish. Not mainstage material. The front man must have taken too many drugs in his youth. You'd have been better off getting a locally popular covers band.
  • The Living End - I love this band so was pleased they played a few classic hits. Good energy all round and they did a cover of Nirvana's Breed with Jon Toogood (from Shihad) - an absolute classic BDO moment, one I'll never forget. 
  • Tony Hawk Skate Jam Show - Tony and his boarders got some great air time and actually had a big audience than Midnight Youth which is not thattttt surprising.
  • I Am Giant - we got filmed for their video they were doing but didn't appear to make the cut. Sad face! Never heard them before but they played some good songs at the end of their set after a same same start. Lead Singer seemed have what it takes to be a good show man - they suffered from being on shitty smaller main stage.
  • Cavalera Conspiracy - I don't care if these were the boys from Sepultura, this kind of music sucks.
  • Regurgitator - I like their old stuff better than their new stuff but these guys were pretty shit live. They sound nothing like their recorded music - playing rap songs about licking assholes has it's place but when you have bigger hits and you're not playing them, you've missed the point of Big Day Out. 
  • Parkway Drive - music was a similar style to Cavalera Conspiracy but was was impressed that they were a pretty tight unit. 
  • Midnight Youth - I thought this band was over-rated before I heard them and nothing changed for me. Lead singer seems like a real dick. 
  • Noel Gallagher Gold Coast BDO 2012 Set List

    Kanye West Set List Big Day Out BDO 2012



    Kanye West Set List Big Day Out 2012

    Arriving 45 minutes late, The Telegraphs review noted "Yeezy did spend a great deal of time sharing the stage with a dozen ballet dancers, all of whom moved in a classical frenzy around him as he belted out Runaway. Like his 2010 album My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy, his performance felt less like hip hop and more like universal, gigantic music. Michael Jackson 2.0 indeed."

    Kanye West is a jackass. The American President said so. So goodness knows why the organisers of the Big Day Out saw fit to have him headline the Australian BDO shows.... but seeing as you've found this you probably think BDO is ACE for having Kanye do a headlining turn so here's the set list from his show. He didn't do anything from The Throne Tour - he said he'd made a pact not to perform it solo.

    Cavalera Conspiracy BDO Set List 2012

    Setlist from the Big Day Out Auckland 2012 on January 20th

    The Cavalera brothers played three Sepultura songs so that kept the fans happy - this kind of music was not my cup of tea and I really don't think they should have been a 'main stage' act for the BDO.

    My cousins-in-law had been raving about this band, and they delivered a high intensity Big Day Out set list, worthy of their morning slot on the main stage indeed they gave The Living End a run for their money. Kentucky should consider itself lucky to be able to call these boys sons!

    Big Day Out Set List 2012 My Chemical Romance


    These boys have no idea what a bad romance is, all they do is play their music with high intensity which makes all the EMO kids fall in love with them. Teenagers eh?

    Sadly for this performance, MCR suffered a really terrible sound mix - Gerard Way gave it a pretty decent effort but the mix was just below par - who ever did that job should reflect on how shit they are.

    Here's My Chemical Romance's Big Day Out Set List for 2012

    The Living End Set List BDO Auckland 2012

    Jan 20th

    Being one of the true veteran bands of the BDO, The Living End delivered a hit fulled set list including a nice nod to Nirvana (having played the original Big Day Out) by playing a sweet cover version of Breed with Jon Toogood from Shihad (but actually playing with The Adults) sharing sing duties with Chris Cheney - it was a classic BDO moment.

    The Wife and I were amused to come across Living End's bassist the night before on the Streets of Auckland - he seemed to have had a good day...

    Noel Gallagher Big Day Out Set List 2012


    There were two reasons two go to the Auckland Big Day Out in 2012. One rhymed with Garden and the other was Noel Gallagher. Mr Oasis. Mr Wonder Wall.

    He said the day before the show:

    "I haven't been to NZ since 1997. I have no recollection of it at all! My tour manager informed me I may have had an impromptu sing song round a piano in a hotel bar with that singer Joe Cocker!! I don't remember that at all!! Scary, eh?"

    I saw that show - it was pretty crazy, Liam was drunk, Noel stormed out!

    Playing the last ever gig at the BDO, Noel had some big shoes to fill. Joe Strummer did an amazing set after the RCHP in 2000 and the Flaming Lips will live in infamy for their costume filled closing act in 2005.

    So did Noel deliver? Let's just say for him to close the Big Day Out with Don't Look Back in Anger was pretty apt. Also die hard fans got three Oasis b-sides! Stocked to here Talk Tonight - I pretty much learnt how to play guitar with the chords from that song! Any way, here's the set list.

    Noel Gallagher Big Day Out 2012 Set List

    (It's Good) To Be Free
    Everybody's on the Run
    Dream On

    Soundgarden Set List Big Day Out 2012



    Soundgarden Set List Big Day Out 2012


    Auckland January 20th


    Mount Smart Stadium

    We'll the kings of grunge that are still living (RIP Kurt, Justin Beiber mourns you) are back at the Big Day Out for what turned out to be the last festival at the Mount Smart Stadium.

    Chris Cornell turned up in NZ late last year to perform acoustically and it was well received by the punters. He mentioned during that gig the prospect of Soundgarden doing a BDO show and that was enough to get me to Auckland (and the fact Noel Gallagher was playing too plus that they dropped Kanye West from the line up) .

    This year's BDO was almost a low key event, lets face it, Soundgarden and the guy from Oasis were the only artists who have had the record sales and a place in rock history that the rest of the other performers can dream of.

    So with perhaps one last cup of sorrow, here's Soundgarden's final Big Day Out Set List:

    Set List


    Searching With My Good Eye Closed
    Spoonman
    Let Me Drown
    Jesus Christ Pose
    Outshined
    Rusty Cage
    Blow Up the Outside World
    The Day I Tried to Live

    Ugly Truth
    Fell on Black Days
    Drawing Flies

    I heard a rumour that Hooker With a Penis had it's first outing in a Tool concert since 1999. The cynic in me wonders if it was some kind of response to Lady Gaga's Government Hooker but somehow I doubt it ;)
