The Empire strikes back???
I really love Empire of the Sun. And judging by their clean sweep made at the Arias this year - so does everyone else. But their first attempt at headlining Parklife was utterly dismal. Despite the amazing costume changes and warped out back-up dancing, it just seemed like there was no energy, excitement or audience interaction coming from front man Luke Steele. The crowd barely moved a dance muscle. Maybe it had something to do with the absence of side-kick Nick Littlemore, who was said to have disappeared off the face of the earth and won't return Steele's phone calls. Who knows? Anyway, I walked out of that dream real quick and made my way to the pulsating crowd who were obviously enjoying The Rapture a whole lot more.
