Bob Marley Leeds Uni 1977


Sweet, you can't beat that. There's something powerful about seeing those amazing people that are no longer with us. I've met two people that saw Hendrix live :shock:

I was also at Oasis too :lol:

However my favorite would have to be an early PJ Harvey gig possibly at Brixton Academy. I was never much of a fan but the energy was unreal.

RHCP at Hyde Park was amazing - James Brown (RIP) and his crew supporting also amazing. Unfortunately Chicks on Speed were opening up and got booed off, which was also amazing in trhe fact that I've never heard so many people hate a band so much!!

If you get a chance go and see Arthur Brown, I've seen him a few times in tiny clubs and he's brilliantly mental in a musical kind of way - shoving the mic down his trousers and singing into his microphone hard-on - funny as f**k!

Presidents of the Usa this year, Super Furry Animals in 1996, Motorhead a couple of weeks ago - all brilliant!

I was at that too. 120,000 people IIRC, and yet that is the first time I've heard that gig mentioned in well over 10 years.

The best two that i have experienced are either U2 in Germany or the Stones at the O2.

Amazing!

Prince at the o2 was seriously amazing-

Massive Attack in Cardiff just after Mezzanine came out- 'Angel' is def. the best single song I've heard live.

Radiohead on the big tent tour in Newport, cant remember that one so much, just before OK Computer came out I'm sure it must have been good!

Bob Dylan in Cardiff just after Time out of Mind came out- proper mix of the classics and the 'new stuff' which was fantastic.

Seeing Kasabian play at a tiny little bar near Phoenix, Arizona while I was working out there was pretty special.
There was only about 100 people in there, and most/all of them had never even heard of Kasabian.
They certainly knew about them by the time the gig had finished! This place was bouncing by the time they finished with Clubfoot 8)
These are the kind of gigs I love, small and intimate.
About 2 weeks later I stumbled across Embrace playing and even smaller gig in Sacremanto, California. Must have been 30 people max in there and they were asking what we wanted them to play!
I've seen both bands play to 5000+ people but these 2 gigs were far better to me :D


Like wise saw them do a small (ish) 1000 people gig at Leeds uni a few years back...really very good in small venues.

I also saw Kings of leon at a gig in bridlington before they were widely known, they were supporting "The music" came on looking a little like the bastard offspring of zztop and proceeded to blow the small crowd away. Seen them many times since in much larger venues, but that was special.

Off to see a nice lineup next year in dublin, Oasis headlining and kasabien and rumoured to be the prodigy supporting...cant wait.


That KOL gig sounds amazing. I caught them touring on the back of Youth and Young Manhood and have been hooked ever since. Head and shoulders the best live band of the last 5 years imo. They just come on stage, play and then leave. No poncing around, just raw talent.
Its a shame that the latest album seems to have lost a lot of that rawness :(
Had a great 2 days last year when I saw KOL at at Wembley followed by The Verve the following night at the 02 :D
Got tickets to see them on the 14th in Bournemouth 8)
