HAVE YOU ATTENDED A RECENT BIG DAY OUT?

chairpage.com has a long standing and highly regarded tradition where people send in their experiences from attended Silverchair shows. We call them Road Reports and post them, unedited, to chairpage for everyone to read.

Unfortunately very few Road Reports for the recent Big Day Out tour have been received. If you have attended any of these shows please tell us all about it by writing a review and sending it to us. Include if you can anything that happened at the show "out of the ordinary", anything humourous or simply what impacted you the most.

Please send what you've got (photos too - good quality only please) to webmaster@chairpage.com and we'll post them to chairpage with a credit to you.

CHAIR GET HOT

Silverchair have had the strongest showing of their entire career with "Straight Lines" making it to #2 on Triple J's Hottest 100 poll missing out on #1 by a mere 13 votes of the 700,000+ votes cast! The national youth broadcaster's annual list of their listeners' favourite songs of the year was announced today and is always a highlight for Australian music fans.

The great result for "Straight Lines" eclipsed every other Silverchair track. Previous highlights included "Tomorrow" (#5 in 1994), "Freak" (#13 in 1997), "Ana's Song" (#15 in 1999) and "The Greatest View" (#10 in 2002).

Daniel Johns was interviewed live on Triple J to accompany the announcement and expressed his sincere thanks to everyone who had voted for Silverchair in this year's poll.

Other songs from Young Modern to feature in this year's list were:

If You Keep Losing Sleep (#30)
Reflections Of A Sound (#80)
