  1. @deedeedragons..”would you rather see Hobart’s or Canberra’s or something?”…Yeah can’t see the problem with that idea.I’m not bored witless yet that seeing fireworks on TV floats my boat with excitement.If I was stuck in front of the box I would think the featured performances would be the draw-card.There’s nothing stopping that being shown from Hobart or Canberra,other than the normal bit of Sydney centric nonsense of course….

    • Very aware of the meaning of the word, but it is the eve of the 2013 year just as Xmas Eve is the eve of Xmas. Seems rather pointless to me to have an eve of a year that won’t exist as soon as that eve expires, but I accept I am likely in the minority!

    • Shrugs…. it’s the title of the show. Personally I’ve always subscribed to the theory that it’s the eve of 2013 anyway, so don’t get me started!

      PDA: I did read elsewhere that Catriona was happy to return and do one-off gigs if they suited so my understanding is it had expired.
