    Crap: oasis (twice, and both times bored the hell out of me..and that was whenthey were good as well), The Hives...erm thats it for now...
    Luckily I haven't actually paid just to see a band who turned out to be crap. Have seen some absolutely shocking support bands at times though, and Metallica and the very stoned Dandy Warhols at the BDO were both bad too. Stopped liking Metallica after their performance. It just seemed that they didn't care much, they hardly moved around on the stage at all, just stood there in fixed positions. The crowd was nasty too, like 30,000 all at the one stage and I was the only one not wearing a black Metallica shirt. The fireworks were good though, I'll give them that.

    Jealous that you got to see Radiohead. I would love to see them live. I've heard somewhere that someone from the band came here to look for a suitable venue but all the indoor theatres we have weren't big enough or something. Why not have and outdoor gig then? Oh well.

    The color of immortality, nature and envy - you are truly a unique person. While clearly the color of nature, you also symbolize rebirth, fertility and hope in the world. On the other side of the spectrum, a natural aptitude to money with green coming to signify money and possibly even *********!

    Either a Paul McCartney concert in 2011 or (and this might be cheating) a Madchester festival I went to last year.

    Toughie, one of the following

    Oasis - saw them a bunch of times but will go for Liverpool Royal Court 2002
    Guns N Roses - Olympic stadium two years ago
    Paul McCartney - Manchester 2011.
    Rolling Stones - Old Trafford last year

    Honourable mention to Motley Crue who might make the list if I remembered their gigs better, they tended to get out of hand

    Hmm,

    Red Hot Chili Peppers, supported by James ****ing Brown, in 2004, both put on unreal shows (saw the former a few years later at Leeds, and easily the worst performance I've ever seen

    REM, supported by Feeder, Idlewild, and the Zutons at Lancs CC one year. Think that was on a Friday, then headed down to Milton Keynes Bowl for Green Day on the Sunday, awesome weekend of music.

    Any time I've seen Pearl Jam - they made a Manchester show last about 3 hours once - but their appearance at Leeds was their first festival back after Roskilde. They insisted on a safety barrier near the front, so many thought the front was some sort of VIP golden circle, not realising you could just walk around and stand there. Was about 5 rows back in a totally uncrowded area.

    Likewise James always put on a good show, catching them at the GMex one year with Tim Booth walking through the crowd shaking everyones hand at the start, sadly in the days of phones with potatoes for camera's or i'd still have the footage.

    Slipknot and Rammstein back to back at Download was pretty good.
    Managed to catch Rage Against the Machine at Leeds too.

    I guess Muse would still have to top my list. The first time was certainly the best - a small theatre of about 1000 people in Auckland. Pretty special experience, that.

    Others that I have great memories of include Rammstein, Faith No More, Radiohead, Black Sabbath, Iron Maiden, The Veils, John Farnham, Jimmy Barnes and Rob Zombie.

    In recent times, Alice Cooper and Judas Priest have put on preposterously good shows considering how old they are. Can't believe Rob Halford can still sing the way he does.

    Looking forward to Metallica and Elton John in the next few months. I gather Elton's voice isn't quite what it once was, but it'll still be good to see such an icon in the flesh.
