    I have seen lots and lots over the years.
    But to be honest,The Stones take some beating.
    The thing is I'm not a big Rolling Stones fan.
    I went with a mate who had a spare ticket back in '96.
    They were excellent.
    My list in no real order.
    The Rolling Stones.
    Simple minds.
    Guns and roses
    UB 40
    And of course our leader

    Kewpie, can you find the link from awhile ago on this subject? I know I posted there and it would help me out. Help an old lady... I dont remember, I dont recall. I got no memory of anything at all.

    I can! U2 are shite. Saw them on the 'War' tour 25 years ago, and even then they were in danger of disappearing up their own arses. I left early.

    Best Live Performance

    that you've not had to endure, not including Morrissey, and those lucky to be old enough to have seen The Smiths.

    Out of mine, i'd have to say Interpol, on 8th July 08, at the Manchester Apollo.

    Simply immense, and it's getting to the point now where an artist/band has to be really special for me to want to see them, Interpol are one of the few..
