Live concerts


We went to see Kings of Leon at Hyde Park last night and I have to say Caleb Followill's voice was amazing! Foo Fighters and Dave Grohl's voice aside, his voice is probably the best I've ever heard live. He made it look so effortless and they played a great mix of new and old material.
The Foos at Wembley Stadium was the best I've ever seen live, and I've also been lucky enough to see alot of big names live over the years, and that set me wondering who you've all seen and who put on the best show for you?

I haven't seen anyone live for a while, and I haven't seen many...
I think the last time was 2004 when I saw Incubus do their A Crow Left of the Murder tour in 2004, MEN arena. Ah, was a good night :)
Before that it was Placebo in one of the Leeds uni halls, 2003, Sleeping With Ghosts.
Oh, and I saw Capdown :)yes:) who were supporting Weezer :)no:) in a free event in Leeds, called Breeze. Didn't want to see Weezer, I went for the support band :D

I don't know who the last band my husband saw was, but I know who the first was. Quite embarassing for him, actually ;)

Pantera at Manchester Apollo was good but so was Metallica at G-mex, its a close call but id have to say Pantera seeing that without Dimebag there will never be another chance to see them


Think this takes some beating

Went to see kings of leon in manchester on sunday and just thought it was a poor show, the crowd never got going which I would say was due to a poor set list. Have seen foo fighters a few times and they are amazing, can't wait for them in milton keynes next saturday :clap:

He even signed my Alphabet Zoo CD, because I have the same name as one of his 'T' animal songs :D


Macc Lads.

Absolutely fanchuffingtastic.

Macc lads, weren't they fond of boddingtons, chips and gravy?

My top 3 concerts were

Pink Floyd

Oh hang on, that's four lol
