Rearview Mirror from Pearl Jam !
heeft de eer het toernooi te openen. Als
intro speelt de gitarist voor de gelegenheid
het deuntje van het Wilhelmus. Bij de eerste
band valt op dat de gitarist en de bassist
de show stelen. Dit is het eerste optreden
in deze formatie, maar vast niet hun eerste
optreden. En wat betreft de jury ook niet
hun laatste: uiteindelijk vallen ze met een
vierde plek net buiten de prijzen. Vaak is
het nog niet zo druk aan het begin van een
dergelijke dag/avond, maar na verloop van
het eerste optreden is Bondi Beach als zo
goed als gevuld.
