I'll kick off with my post from the other thread:

In my time I have seen....Led Zeppelin (Knebworth 1979) Pink Floyd (The Wall, Earl's Court 1980) Rolling Stones (Leeds 1982) Queen (Wembley 1986) with Status Quo and InXS as opening acts! Deep Purple MKII (Knebworth and NEC) Genesis (Brussels, NEC and MK Bowl with Peter Gabriel and Steve Hackett) Thin Lizzy on a few occasions (Birmingham Odeon mainly) Eric Clapton (Odyssey, Belfast) Bruce Springsteen ( Odyssey, Belfast) Chris Rea (NEC and Waterfront, Belfast) Bryan Adams (NEC) Dire Straits (NEC) Rory Gallagher (Civic Hall, Wolverhampton) Simon and Garfunkel (Wembley)
Others include Divine Comedy (Belfast) Suzanne Vega (Waterfront, Belfast), Pat Benatar, Iron Maiden, Def Leppard (Odeon, Birmingham) Rush, Rainbow (Cow Shed, Stafford a couple of times) AC/DC (post Bon Scott, unfortunately) Stranglers, Black Sabbath. Many times at Donington Monsters of Rock (ZZ Top, Meatloaf, Slade, Whitesnake and many others I was too drunk to remember there, and a couple of Reading Festivals (1981 and 1983...I think). Plus many other, smaller less known bands in pubs and festivals, too many to list

Camel; Gryphon; Rick Wakeman; Sailor ( :oops: ); Stephane Grapelli and Yehudi Menuhin; lots more I can't bring to mind as most of them were at Leeds University in the mid 1970s!

In fact, one of the reasons I went to Leeds was the misapprehension that The Who actually lived there .....

He and Stephane were utterly brilliant. It was at Leeds Grand Theatre and though hardly Rock music ('cos it was chiefly Jazz/Classical), it was exceptionally entertaining. I have eclectic tastes - but then most of us do, I suppose.

Get out there - there's nothing quite as good as seeing/hearing music performed live.

Too many to count, been to at least 50 concerts. The ones that stood out were Black Sabbath, The Who, Deep Purple, Pink Floyd and Page/Plant. The most recent was Nickelback in 2013 at the Bell Centre in Montreal but I only went to that show because my favourite band Seether was the backup.

Thats a pretty mixed bag ...certainly some gems in there but I wouldn't shout too loud about Sir Cliff or the Osmonds ....
when that little prat sang long haired lover etc etc ....he gave Liverpool a bad name and a all I wanted to do was throttle him ...to say nothing of his older brother and his glaringly white gnashers...
