Seen the Boss twice, and I'm going again this summer.

can't wait.

I mentioned on the other thread that I saw INXS on the Kick tour in 1988, when Micheal Hutchence was at his prime. They were supported by Sinead O 'Conner, who noone had every heard of. What a voice! She emptied the bar, because everyone realised there was actually a decent support act on.

Best gigs for me ever were Led Zep in 1971 (I am old!) and Muse at Wembley last year.

ipanemagirl Wed 02-Apr-08 14:34:33

wow, Led zep!

Notyummy Wed 02-Apr-08 14:34:34

Would LOVE to see Muse. I play black holes and revelations FAR too loud in the car on the way to pick up dd from nursery. Makes me drive too fast...and as I have 9 points already, i really don't need that.

<notyummy contemplates only listening to nursery rhymes in car from now on for the sake of preserving license...>

AHHH Lambchop! I saw them at the RFHall sometime but can't remember when, amazing band.
Would love to have seen Steely Dan too. Were they great in 2001 or a pale shadow?
