    Your Personal Ultimate Gig

    (Inspired by Marc's comments about U2 live)

    Any bands (that includes all variants ie orchestra, group, choir etc) of your choice, past or present.

    Upto 5 in one gig and order them with reasons.

    For moi:

    1) U2 - start the night off on a mellower setting but unbeatable for quality of sound and variation in styles.

    2) Oasis - nothing better than singing along to all your classic Oasis tunes.

    3) The Beatles - Kings Of Pop. Will always be legends in my eyes. Will have to stick to more upbeat tunes and stay away from the stoner music they came up with near the end of the era.

    4) Foo Fighters - Best rock band of the last decade IMO (just edged out Queens Of The Stone Age) and Dave Grohl is a legend.

    5) Queen - Awesome to end the night. 'Nuff said, wouldn't get any better than that.

    Comments/your own choices?

    Honourable mentions go to 'The Who', 'Rolf Harris', 'Reel Big Fish', 'Nirvana', 'Feeder'.

    I just bought the Foo Fighters DVD Everywhere but Home and its awesome.

    Man, I can't wait until they come back to New Zealand because they really are probably one of the best live acts.

    Nice thread

    Start off with U2.. Whole family are fans, could never really avoid there music as a youngster and ended up well and truly hooked

    Matchbox 20 - Rarely do I hear a band whose tracks i like ALL of... MB 20 are a must..

    Travis - Accused of being depressing.. I tend to see them as music to chill out to, not too heavy on the ears, any by a long way they are my favourite band...

    Royksopp - These norweigan guys are very innovative, whilst still making "proper" music.. Music which is always played as the background to stuff on TV.. like Eple..

    Coldplay - Id like to have Stereophonics instead, but they have made a few shockers..... Chris Martin it is then...

    Indeed a very good thread

    Greenday - Just love all of their songs. And they'd be a great live act.

    Matchbox 20 - Well.... Rich said it well. Every one of their songs are classics.

    Linkin Park - These guys would be THE BEST live. And I like just about every one of their songs.

    Coldplay - In the same sort of mould as Matchbox 20. Some great songs as well. Have to play Yellow, The Scientist and Shiver.

    28 Days - Just love their music, also a great live act.

    Oasis - How could I not listen to Wonderwall? Other great hits as well, Champagne Supernova, Don't Look Back in Anger and Stop Crying Your Heart Out.

    Robbie Williams - Great entertainer and I love ALL of his songs. Perfect guy to end the night.

    How much for a ticket? Cause I'd kill for one of those

    You need to hear my version of Wonderwall before you understand the true beauty of that song.

    U2 - one of the greatest alternative bands of all-time.

    Colplay - nice relaxed music.

    Matchbox20Twenty - The masters of all things music for me for the past 8 months or so.

    Michael Jackson - the greatest stage performer of all-time.

    Weird Al Yankovic - the man is a genius!

    The Beatles - Legends!

    On second thoughts, Queen would be pretty amazing..

    A guy said to me on saturday "how can anyone not like queen" In my experience, he is pretty much right.. They must be one of the most widely respected bands ever...

    Top 5 Gigs I have seen:

    1) Oasis - Livid 2002. My favourite band, and although their stage show isn't that great their professionalism in playing their music and the emotion in each and every song more than makes up for it.

    2) Rolling Stones - Brisbane Entertainment Centre March 2003. They played all the classics, the big stage songs and the smaller intimate set and their rock 'n' roll attitude was just spectacular. Keith Richards and Ronny Wood both came on stage with cigarettes.

    3) Kiss - Carrara April 2001. What more can be said about the greatest stadium band ever. Although the weather kept the crowd away, there is no other band IMO that comes close to putting on a show as the mighty KISS!

    4) Silverchair - Brisbane convention Centre March 2003. Silverchair have gone from garage teenage angst band to world class songwriters and performers. Daniel Johns has evolved into an amazing front man and the poeticness (is this a word?) of their music takes you through so many emotions in their 2-hour performance.

    5) Powderfinger - Brisbane Riverstage November 2003. This band has come along way since I first saw them at Livid in 1997, their music has developed and Fanning's vocals have improved immensly allowing them to write bigger and better music.

    Other gigs I would like to mention I have seen that come so very close:

    Deep Purple
    Grinspoon
    Cold Play
    The Offspring
    Soundgarden
    The Living End
    The Music

    Bands I would have loved to have seen:

    The Beatles
    Cream
    The Guess Who
    The Jimmy Hendrix Experience
    The Doors
    Led Zepplin

    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 *********!

    I saw Powderfinger at V2001 over here in England. Quite impressed, and not only about how their bassist both managed to look like Steve Irwin and play his bass by his ankles!
