    Placebo at the O2 Academy in Sheffield last May - it was only a few days before the album Battle For The Sun was released and not only was it the first time they'd played it to a paying audience it was a small venue and I was stood on the balcony as close to the stage as you could get. I also really enjoyed their gig in Manchester at Christmas but the Sheffield one edged it.

    Other than that I once went to a free event for Vodafone when my wife worked for them. The acts were Sheryl Crowe, Madness, Blue and Elton John. Every single one was amazing, I never thought I would say that about Blue, but Elton actually did more encores than he had planned as during the last one he was wearing a tracksuit as he had changed ready to depart.

    And how about the bands we haven't seen, but would have killed to?

    Led Zep for me, I saw Fleetwood Mac at Wembley in about '91 but we were so far back it just didn't do anything. Like to see them again. Ohh Stevie Nicks is gorgeous! (and about 15 years older than me)

    Snow Patrol (Don't count the IoW 2005 as seeing them)
    Take That
    Split Enz
    Duran Duran
    Toad The Wet Sprocket (if the ever reform...)
    Pearl Jam
    Scissor Sisters
    Stereophonics
    Richard Ashcroft

    Probably others, but they are the big ones I can think of right now.

    Needless to say, DD blew me and my gf away, and were brilliant.

    SS were good, but were playing to a half full house, at the time.

    This was also the first time that we felt our baby kick! Our son was born 5 months later and has a deep appreciation of good music.....I wonder why???? LOL!!

    I had tickets to see Madness back in the early days (79-80??) but when we got there - there was a big band of skinheads kicking the proverbial out of everyone - so did a runner before they came on - sad that I missed them now.

    Back on topic - I forgot another EPIC concert -

    Travis at Theford Forest in 2006 (I think - time flies!)

    The band started the concert by pushing their way through the crowd to get to the stage! I didn't realise what was going on until too late and was right in the path they were taking to the stage. I got thrown to one side by a bouncer while my brother was giving the lead singer a high-five!

    The actual concert itself was also first class all the way

    My daughter was in a simolar situation when I saw Mac, along with the River City People, & Jethro Tull. It does seem to have influenced her tastes too!

    Pretty much seen/heard most people that have been on the major festival circuit for the last 3 years.

    One person that was really good was Paul McCartney

    Also kings of leon are awesome

    Saw Deep Purple in 74 too - my first ever gig (In Coventry) with Nazareth in support - Nazareth blew them off stage - though it was about a week before I could hear anything again...somewhat regret that now - as my hearing is shot after too many loud gigs

    Domino: Frank Turner is my favourite singer - have seen him many times live

    SpuffMonkey: that must have been the same tour of Deep Purple (I saw them in London) but I dont remember Nazareth -mind you, I dont remember much from those days

    Forgot Reading Festival 1978 (highlight Sham 69) and Reading 1979 (Gillan, Gabriel, Cheap Trick, Steve Hackett,The Police - and best of all, The Ramones)

    Recently saw Biffy Clyro - was a good one

    I would loved to have seen Stone Roses in their day..

    Best gig would probably be the 2002 homecoming tour where oasis played Manchester and Glasgow (they were discovered in glasgow)

    Played the barrowlands, to about 400 people.. Great gig..

    Also, I went to every T in the Park from 1999-2008 inclusive, so have seen most of the best bands ive wanted to see.. the most memorable was travis in '00, when just before they started to play 'why does it always rain on me' it clouded over, and started raining.. good times..
