Queen - The Works tour (my first concert ever)

All following concerts were in Vredenburg, Utrecht, The Netherlands. This is a small concert hall (also used for classical concerts). Because it is so small, the atmosphere is very warm, personal. As if you're just visiting an artist in his house (ok, mansion)
Youssou N'Dour

I'm not a huge concertgoer, but I think the best show I ever saw was David Byrne a few years back in a local club.

Hey Mrs Taylor

My girlfriend and I have been waiting to go to a Simply Red concert for so long. He tours the States very rarely so it's hard to see him around here.

We actually had our chance to see him last year (first U.S. tour since 1992), but then my girlfriend had mid term exams that same week and was absolutely busy with work and study. We hope Mick Hucknall and Simply Red will be touring the States soon... hopefully.

My favourite gig ever was probably Mansun at Central Station, Wrexham, in 2002, the one and only time I got to see them. Little did I know at the time that they would split up after the tour and the new songs they were previewing would not get released until a couple of weeks ago! I wish I'd taken a recorder to catch it on tape!

Electric Six at Central Station in 2003 was also a great gig, very energentic and I was taken aback by seeing twin lead guitars for the first time when I saw Wishbone Ash live at Telford's Warehouse in Chester in 2004.

Off to see Bloc Party hopefully this weekend, wonder whether that will rate up there?!
