Has nobody here ever seen Led Zeppelin?

My best concert experience was seeing Jimmy Page and Robert Plant in 1998. When Page pulled out the violin bow during How Many More Times, I was in heaven.

Next best was Rush in July '02 in Toronto. It was my first time seeing the band, and that in itself made it an incredible experience, regardless of what they played. They played a great mixture of music anyway, so I walked away happier than I ever thought I'd be from that show.

3rd best was Dream Theater this past July. DT are just perfect, and totally blew me away on stage, playing all the old stuff I wanted to hear. The setlist was entirely different from the first time I saw them in '02, and that made it even better. Well, minus the part of Metropolis they threw into the instrumedley the last time...

Um, pardon me and not to be nosy, but who is this Blue?

Best concert would have to be, currently, only really big concert. I have been to assorted other small ones.

Pearl Jam - Lexington '03

Despite the fact that there was this idiot girl behind me who was there just to rave about how sexy every single one of the band members were.

Mother Jane, Rainbow Cafe show was also very good. I really hope those girls get somewhere. But there were maybe 20 people at that show.

Now you know. Buy Mother Jane.


God wants you to send me some money.

Blue have grown on me a bit in the past year or so-I now only think of them as a bit crap and a bunch of dickheads, whereas before I thought they were proper shite.

I was lucky enough to see Queen at least once on every UK tour from Hyde Park (76) to Knebworth (86). The best Queen gig looking back now would be Knebworth because it was Freddie's last but having said that the Bingley hall Stafford gigs of 77 & 78 would take some beating.
From an emotional level the Tribute Concert was just something else with complete strangers crying together & hugging together at the end when they showed Freddie on the video screens.
Liveaid was something else that made being a Queen fan feel very special I can tell you inside the stadium everybody was with the band regardless of who they had originally come to see. The only 2 acts to come anywhere near were Bowie & U2 and The Who were the biggest disappointment of the day.
The other artists I have seen over the last 30years who I've really enjoyed are
The DAMNED (50+ Times)
Stranglers - Manchester Apollo 1980
Robbie Williams (yes really) - M.E.N. areana 2001
The Cross (Various)
Roger & Brian of course
Slade - Victoria Hall Hanley 1981
Hazel O'Conner - Shrewsbury Music Hall 1980
Stiff Little Fingers - Liverpool Royal Court 1983
Thin Lizzy - Wembley Areana 1979
Dire Straits - NEC 84
U2 - NEC 87
Elton John - NEC 86
I could go on forever here but the worst show I think I've ever been to was Cliff Richard in 1975 bloody awful he was!
