    I've been to some really good ones in my time, although admittedly I haven't been able to get to any in the past few years. I went to Hit The Deck in Nottingham a few years ago which was amazing, but I think my favourite gigs have been The Blackout and Forever The Sickest Kids. While I don't really listen to the bands now, the support acts were amazing, the bands were really good, the venues were great, and the general atmosphere was insane. I always used to hang around and meet the bands afterwards as well. How about you?

    I've been to a lot of concerts. I prefer concerts in small concert halls, the atmosphere is just so much better and more 'intimate' in a way. One of the best concerts I have been to has to be Imagine Dragons at Brixton in 2014 (I think) and Twenty One Pilots at Shepherds Bush Empire.

    I'd say seeing Black Sabbath on their Reunion Tour back in 2013! Another concert I really enjoyed was Papa Roach on their Silence is the Enemy Tour in December 2013, they were my favourite band at the time and it was great being able to finally see them live after years of loving their music

    BIGBANG at Wembley Arena in 2012 or Boy George at King Tut's Wah Wah Hut in 2013. Both were just so utterly surreal.*

    Gorrilaz live at M.E.N Arena in 2010. I was right up at the front and I couldn't have got a better view. The show both in terms of the visual aspects and the music were amazing and no gig has topped it since. I don't know how I managed with the crowds though. These days I can barely deal with a venue holding 50 people, let alone 21,000

    Damn that sucks, just hunt someone down at school/uni who also likes them. I went with someone from school to see FOB purely through stalking their Spotify history lmao.

    ODESZA at Troxy. Insane visuals, lighting, music and the atmosphere was beyond amazing.

    Going to see Flume at The Warehouse Project and BMTH at Barclaycard Arena.

    Pretty sad that I never got to see Queen perform live or even Bombay Bicycle Club. ;(

    Desertfest was real good a few years ago. We made some "special" brownies and spent 3 days headbanging, it was killer.

    I can't pin down one specific gig because I've been to so many over the years (I had an A2 [I think. It might be A1, Idk] sized corkboard filled up with tickets, and I've got enough tickets that aren't on the board that could easily fill the majority of another one. Paper reference tickets don't make it onto the board, and I've got a few of them laying around too).

    The Pigeon Detectives at Concorde 2 in Brighton. The single best atmosphere I've ever experienced and the most deaf I've ever left a concert.
