Everybody’s touring in Australia these days… They must love American music!

@Taylor:

They do now*lol*.

@P90X maybe American musicians love playing at Australian venues :)

As an Aussie, i have to say, American artists flood our radios, and therefore they’re music is huge here, just as they are in the States. So it is really nice to get the artists to come to our land and perform for their fans, since we are never given the opportunity to go see them every other weekend like you guys.
And like @Ricky said, maybe they like our venues, because we do have some pretty fantastic venues down here. And Australia is a beautiful country, so why wouldn’t people, even artists, want to come visit :)
