Joe Satriani - Mumbai (2005)
Managed to see Elton about 12 years ago. Puts on an amazing show. Of course he can't hit the notes he could in the 70s, hasn't been able to for about 30 years now, but he does rework the key of the songs to account for that, and does it well.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.
