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.

Erm, 1983 - Kajagoogoo

Have graduated to Bryan Adams more recently though

Sinead in 1988! Would have LOVED to have seen her then!!! Jealous.

I loved Born to run so much,

"Hey Eddie, would you lend me a few bucks?"

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.

bluefox · 02/04/2008 14:38

Muse are awesome. Must see them again but cant get to V festival this year and didnt manage to get tickets for Albert Hall.

Would love to have seen Steely Dan too. Were they great in 2001 or a pale shadow?
