|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.

I must say that Green day put on a kickass show.
|My Top 5:
Brian May in Hamburg 93 & 98
Iron Maiden Hamburg 99
Kiss Hamburg 97
Mike Oldfield Hamburg 99
|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?!
|1 The Freddie Mercury Tribute
2 Metallica, Cunning Stunts, Birmingham 97
3 Velvet Revolver,Manchester,Sept 04
4 Monsters of Rock 95, Metallica, Skid Row, Snakepit, Slayer, White Zombie, Donnington Park.
5 Black Sabbath, Last Supper. Birmingham Dec 99
6 Roger Taylor, Stoke on Trent, March 99
7 Bon Jovi, Stoke On Trent, 01
8 Brian May, BTTL,Manchester June 93
9 White Zombie, Wolverhampton 96.
10 Skunk Anansie, Manchester 97.
This is my top 10. The worst gig ive ever been to was Linkin Park, Manchester 03. They were shite!!
|Penis - Vagina
|Probably Pat Benatar with Red Rider opening, 1983 I think. A close 2nd would be Loverboy with Joan Jett, probably the same year. Hall & Oates were lots of fun though.. the saxist came into the audience and ran around. Willie Nelson was quite fun circa 1984.|
|Hm.. Probably a Styx concert I went too....It was fun though.|
|I am guessing since I have only gone to one real concert, I am going to have to go with that one. Michael W. Smith and Mercy Me (2004) and the company was great!|
|I saw Van Halen (Yes with Hagar...) Sept 5. and it was unbelievable...I can't believe how great they still look and sound. It was the best...Whooooo!!! VH!!!! :-))|
|Ohh I also saw Fleetwood Mac, it was okay...|
|I saw Fleetwood Mac too... and it was a boring one to be honest.|
|*grumble* I've never been to a concert. There aren't many concerts that I'm that interested in going to anyway. I once had the oppurtunity to go to a Bob Dylan concert, when I was 10 or 11. *sigh* All I have are 3 Queen concerts that I've downloaded in the past few weeks. Even though I love those, it's no fun watching them by myself. Then I feel bad when I make others watch, cause I know they don't really want to.
I've been to a couple school band concerts. Do those count?
|The very best:
Heart, Chicago 1982
The Police, Champaign IL 1981
Joan Jett, Champaign IL 1981
Brian May, Chicago 1998
Tom Chapin (Harry's bro) Chicago early 70's
Arlo Guthrie, Houghton MI 1985
Dan Fogelberg, Champaign IL 1982
Joe Walsh, Chicago 1983
Chicago, Chicago 1980 and 1982
Rush, Champaign IL 1981
Reo Speedwagon, Champaign IL 1981
John Mellancamp, Chicago 1982
|i havent been to that many concerts (im still young...i guess), so i have to say the best one was the strokes on october 22, 2003. & phantom planet a couple of times, earlier this year and last year. that's about it. i would have seen interpol this month but nooooo...it sold out. =/|
Brian May 1993
Trans-Siberian Orchestra 2003
I've been to many others, from more Queen, more Pretenders, to Frampton, Heart, Santana, Bruce Springsteen, U2, Elton, Billy Joel, B52's, Eagles, Doobie Brothers, Coldplay, The Darkness etc, etc,...but those were my absolute favorite 5 shows. :-)
|Five of my favorites but maybe not THE top five:
Queen - Toronto 1982
Grateful Dead - Toronto 1987
Brian May (opening for GNR and also on his own) - Hamilton and Toronto 1993
The Kinks - Toronto 1983
Dave Matthews Band - Toronto - 2004
Not necessarily my favorites...
I have also seen Pink Floyd (not with Waters) , The Stones , Supertramp and The Eagles among about 200 shows. I saw Peter Gabriel twice on the "So" tour and one time was one of my favorite shows , the second time 6 months later one of my worst.
I saw Fleetwood Mac in the early 90's one of the times they were disinegrating and they were pretty bad.
I could name other great ones and crappy ones ... maybe later!
|Oh Janet you saw ELO!! Awesome!!|
|Janet, do you know if the Trans-Siberian Orchestra are touring now? I saw that my sister got a notice from ticketmaster.com saying they were touring - I thought you might be interested to know, just in case you would want to check it out!|
|Oh, and Savannah, sure I'd love to see the pics!!|
|Already got tickets for Dec 11th, Alistair! ;-)|
|...okay, too swift for me! LOL|
|1. Brian May, 1998
2. Rush, Sept. 2004
3. Yes, 1996 (?)
Brian is obvious, but I must say Rush last month was something to remember for me. Another dream went true. And Yes, well, fantastic sound, amazing music and great Steve Howe.
|Bullwinkle in Toronto 1981 at the Police Picnic Joan Jett had tomatoes thrown at her!!|
|When I saw Joan Jett she was the opening act for the Police, and her show was full of energy and vibe - perfectly setting setting the stage for the Police.|
