    Placebo were never a "louder is better" kinda band, but I think with any concert I'd advise against being right next to the amps :lol:

    Mine was on Thursday night!

    I went to see Don Diablo in Newcastle, he's doing a tour of the UK and Newcastle was his first stop so I had to go! I'd had the tickets since the start of September so was so excited.

    It didn't start out so good. All it said on the ticket was 7:00pm so I just assumed that's what time he was on. I arrived at the O2 Academy for half 6 thinking this was plenty of time.. the queue wrapped around the entire building. Oh dear. I didn't get in until about quarter to 8 and then I had to find the main stage. When I did, the DJ was just closing his set and the next guy wasn't Don Diablo. He was called King Arthur or something. I thought the guy who was closing when I got in was Don Diablo and I'd just missed him. I was just stood there in the crowd so angry at myself. But I just thought to myself "You know what, I paid for this ticket, I'm going to stay and enjoy this guy's set as much as I can, the staff won't notice." So I managed to get myself into it, and at one point I quickly googled on my phone "King Arthur O2 Academy" and it was then I found out that King Arthur was just a supporting DJ for Don Diablo. I didn't realise there'd be supporting artists. So I could enjoy the set a lot more then at 9 the man himself came on stage.

    It was a really good set, mainly just him playing his original songs & remixes and sharing a few of his upcoming tracks with us. Not really so much DJ'ing involved like he does at the bigger festivals but still good to be there. I'm not a fan of all his songs, in fact only a select few, On My Mind, What We Started, Make Me Feel Better etc. but you'll dance to anything at a concert, won't you? Plus the music was so loud I could barely work out what I was listening to half the time, but I uploaded about 15,000 snapchat stories and the sound on them was a lot better so I could watch them again and save what I liked. Oh, and there were moshpits. Lots of them. I'm lucky I'm tall otherwise I'd have ended the night in hospital.

    I learnt to arrive for concerts a couple of hours early instead of half an hour (though I'm kind of glad i missed the first supporting set because by the end I could barely stand) and I learnt to never wear a jacket to a concert. Ever. Bad idea. The only thing is, I didn't drink. I was there to enjoy the music, see someone I follow and really like, learn what I could about DJ'ing live and that was it. Not to get blackout drunk and pull underage girls like everyone else around me. But that's Geordies for you. I enjoyed it so much tho, and it's such a shame we don't get anyone else like Don Diablo in Newcastle

    Still the best cover of "Beat It" I've ever heard :top: I still love Motorhead Ahhh and during the concert my mate and I were massive wrestling fans at the time and Metallica did a song called Line in the Sand which was used as the entrance theme for a faction named Evolution, so when Lemmy asked if anyone has any requests towards the end of the night my mate shouted the song and Lemmy just pointed our way and went "Yeah, let's do that one - Line in the Sand, boys...". Such an awesome moment

    My first concert was Taste of Chaos at SECC when I was 13/14. I went with my mum and there were bands such as Aiden, Saosin and Taking Back Sunday there. T'was a good night but I don't listen to any of those bands now

    I remember wearing a lot of eyeliner and having a long bang fringe and that pretty much everyone in the crowd looked the same as that :laugh:

    Left drenched in beer, and covered in bruises from mosh pit. :broken::beerglass:

    Also lost my hearing for a week afterwards. Was standing at front near speakers.

    Was a NOFX, Lagwagon and Alkaline trio concert.

    Had an epic time.

    My first concert was last year at the o2 seeing The Vamps, it was amazing!

    Sounds cheesy but it was one of the best nights of my life. I've never been so happy before. That afternoon I went to a signing and met one of my favourite bands, they were lovely people. Then at the actual concert I was just speechless; the bands, music and the vibe was just incredible. Plus I was with my 3 best friends which just made it more enjoyable.
