The MINT News Review #6

It’s been an eventful week for the Minties. The Cure is coming to Australia, The best Sausage Roll has been named AND we might be able to win a sleepover at IKEA!

The Cure will headline Vivid Live

The Cure will premiere the global celebrations of the 30th anniversary of their biggest-selling record Disintegration with four concerts at the Sydney Opera House for the annual Vivid Live festival at Vivid Sydney.

The British goth rock icons will perform the album in its entirety — and other fan favourites — on May 24, 25, 27 and 28.



Conan O’Brien in Sydney


US comedian Conan O’Brien visited Sydney this week for his sold out show, ‘Conan & his Australian Friends,’ at the State Theatre. He trained with lifeguards in Bondi, he met koalas and wombats, and he donned a red-and-white Sydney Swans jersey and played some AFL.

Rumour has it this visit came about after Australian actor Hugh Jackman sent him a video shaming him for not including Australia in his show!


Fancy a sleepover at IKEA?


IKEA, home of tasty meatballs and flat pack furniture is hosting a sleepover experience for the lucky winners of their Wake Up With IKEA comp across Australia.

Winners will be treated to a “tailored sleep zone” including the choice of their own linen and preferred pillow type. Plus, to make the whole thing a lot more relaxing than your standard sleepover situation, they’re also offering winners pre-sleep massages, a delicious dinner and cute movie night complete with snacks, followed by breakfast in bed the following morning.


And the winner is…

The 2019 Wotif People’s Choice Uniquely Aussie Awards has proclaimed that their sausage rolls are the best of the best.
