    Didn't see a thread about this, so I thought I would make one.

    So, what all concerts have you guys been to lately or are going to see in the future? Which ones have you enjoyed the most?

    My favourite concert so far must be Muse. I saw them live in Switzerland in November 09.

    Coldplay in 05 was not bad either, same with Paul McCartney in 04.

    Though I cannot wait for wednesday, it's going to be epic...BIFFY CLYRO!!!! At Royal Albert Hall!!!!

    The one I have been to recentely was Murderdolls.
    Not sure what's going to be my next gig, due to money and obviously when my liked bands tour...
    Best concert so far has been Rammstein. Great performance from the band with pyrotechnics and general performances, foam 'penis' cannon. Great support band that is one of my favourites as well. Had lots of freebies, like the drumstick, got given an aftershow party pass too. Even fainted at the end due to the extreme heat being in the front line from the fires... was well worth it. : ) I hope they tour again...

    I guess most people probably have never even heard of the bands I mentioned, but oh well.

    Not exactly recent but these were all AMAZING:
    Muse at Wembely Stadium, years ago.
    Radiohead were amazing when I saw them at Reading. I was right at the front and ahwhhhhrhrhrh words cannot descibe how good they were.
    Oasis at Wembely Arena was good too. They put on a good show. So did Blur when I saw them at Hyde Park :coma:

    Going to see Belle and Sebastian in May. Woohoooo.

    Recently I've seen Chapel Club (boring, dull) and Does it Offend you Yeah? (generally just loud)..

    The best gig I ever went to: Probably Coldplay in 08 because we were front row, dressed as Coldplay (French revolutionary gear complete with French flag) and managed to get loads of stuff off the stage from the band.. picks, drum sticks, set lists. Check the Coldplay wiki thats our flag in the picture.

    U2 in Dublin was great. Whatever you think about them. Home city + 120,000 Dubliners makes for a special night out.

    I have seen:

    Status Quo (loads of times)
    The Eagles
    Aerosmith
    Elton John
    Scissor Sisters
    Kasabian (before they really took off - I wasn't that keen on them)
    Futureheads (didn't like them, think they died)

    I also went to the Montreux Jazz Festival in 2006 and saw Sean Paul play a guitar.

    This summer I am looking at, but will probably only go to less than half:
    Deep Purple
    Iron Maiden
    Whitesnake
    Foreigner + Journey + Styx
    Rod Stewart

    not been to many recently as lack of money but last yearai saw offspring in london and they were fantastic, as well as billy talent in sheffield who were great, apart from when a girl collapsed near the front and it took over an hour for the amulance to arrive, would have been even better without cancer bats though as iv seen them supporting about 3 times now and still dont like them.

    this year i went to the kerrang tour last month which was brilliant (especially as i managed to get free poster, stickers, tour hat and tour shirt) and cant wait for download in june, first time going there and im pretty excited about it already :-D

    Ahhh me too!! Roundhouse? I'm so excited, they're my favourite band ever, I saw them at Latitude last year and nearly died <3 Definitely the best band I've ever seen live, they invite people on stage to dance with them and everything!

    Last year I saw 30 Seconds to Mars twice and went to the Kerrang Relentless tour, and I saw Biffy Clyro and Enter Shikari the year before. I'm thinking about going to Reading this year, but not sure on that one. The lineup looks awesome though.
