I am not sure of NZ geography and travel costs but we are much the same with Foo Fighters and Pearl Jam only playing London in the UK.

I have to commute from Edimburgh, Scotland and book hotels and trains - its a 4.5hr commute each way. To make things more expensive - PJ and the Foos are the same week so its a double commute!

Pearl Jam haven't played Scotland in 18 years.
