In the #36 Position. ''Guns N'Roses, Wembley Stadium, London, June 13, 1992. Stadium Rock Genius!''



''After a patchy European tour dogged by cancellations, and shows being cut short by moody-chops Axl Rose, expectation was fairly low, but at Wembley under a scorching sun, it all came right. With a stellar support bill (Faith No More and Soundgarden), and a guest appearance from Brian May for two Queen covers, ''Tie Your Mother Down'' and ''We Will Rock You'', this was the perfect mix of sleazy L.A. attitude and stadium rock pomposity.''



Below this paragraph is a photo of GNR's 19 song setlist which shows ''Tie Your Mother Down'', and ''We Will Rock You''. However, I spotted on the setlist...''Sail Away Sweet Sister'' as well.



Page 37 In the #21 position. ''Green Day, Reading Festival, August 29, 2004.''



''The stunning rebirth of Green Day began with this Sunday night headline slot. 2 weeks before ''American Idiot'' came out, this was the show that reminded everyone just what a great band Green Day were. More importantly with 50 Cent and Rasmus having been bottled off to hilarious effect earlier in the day, Billy (Joe Armstrong) and company found themselves with an extra hour to fill. Hence, in addition to the usual covers, ''Shout'', ''We Are The Champions'', we got impromptu versions of The Clash's ''I Fought The law'' and the Buzzcocks' ''Ever Fall In Love With Someone You Shouldn't Have''. Ten months later, they'd be back playing to an even bigger crowd.''
