(A couple of close contenders are Bryan Adams at the Caird Hall in Dundee, when he did an intimate little acoustic gig between his two stadium shows - it was wonderful to hear his songs performed that way - and Codeine Velvet Club at the Doghouse in Dundee - less than 100 people in the crowd and some annoying b*****ds at that, but the show was brilliant).



I couldn' get tix for Adams and was gutted, as apparently it was a gret gig. Not a fan of the Caird Hall soundwise - saw Travis, they were great, sound was terrible. Ahh, you're the second person who has said Codeine Velvet Club's gig was great, someone I work with was there and said it was ace. Keep spotting the album in HMV, know what I will be picking up on payday... Never been to the Doghouse, should prob go now that I pass it every day before work...

As for the annoying people, at least there was only 100 of you. Have you perchance had the misfortune to go to a gig in Fat Sams Live? All underagers chucking beer around - the vast majority are annoying! Saw The Hoosiers there and someone else (can't remember) but I prefer when the gigs are on floor 2 of the nightclub - Athlete sounded awesome there last year. I suppose I should be grateful we get any gigs in Dundee at all...!

Been to Fat Sam's Live to see The Fratelli's and it was a great night, but I can imagine that drunk underagers would annoy the crap out of me, mind you I was up at the back of the room away from the floor so I avoided all the beer. Saw Seth Lakeman on the 2nd Floor and you are right the sound was fantastic.

Wouldn't actually recommend the Doghouse, unless it's a really good band.

I saw Travis at the Caird, and you are right the sound in there is crap. Comedy shows are even worse in the Caird...

Seen him twice now and he puts on a fantastic show. No bells and whistles, just him and the band and you can't help but jump and dance.

Well worth trying to go and see.

Hate to say it as it'll probably get me flamed here but it was Keane at V in Stafford, they completely blew me away, so energetic and completely wasn't what I expected.. Found myself in second row which probably played a part ;)


Keane are SOOOO much better live. I saw them for the first time at Edgefest in Toronto (a friend scored free tix from her work and couldn't go), right before he went into rehab and they were very good.

This did not prepare me for how amazing they would be last year in Glasgow. Amazing! Their albums don't really do them justice to be fair.


Keane just keep getting better. I hated their first album but Spiralling is one of my fav tracks ever.


I'm seeing them again in June at Bedgebury Pinetum as its only an hour or so from home.. They are wonderful live.. Really expected it to be quite a mellow affair but the atmosphere was amazing

Extreme at the Academy in Glasgow - reformed and promoting their latest album "Saudade Du Rock" they were f***ing awesome, and they appreciated the crowd (Nuno and Gary both had a conversation about how they insisted Glasgow be on the tour as they remembered vividly the last time they played there)..


Wow I didn''t even know they'd reformed.. Saw them at Wembly Arena (must have been just before xmas 1991).. Haven't listened to Pornograffitti in ages........ *wanders off to stereo*

Metallica - Wembley Stadium - July 8th 2007. My favourite band and my first time seeing them live and it was amazing in so many different ways. Highlights were Disposable Heroes, The Memory Remains and ...And Justice For All

The Wildhearts - Widgewood Rooms - September 21st 2009 - I was right up front to witness (in my opinion) the greatest English band of all time ply their trade. They played their entire new album followed by a set of classics and it was glorious.

As it stands I haven't seen BnL live (due to a lack of money) but hopefully I'll be seeing them in September in Southampton

U2 were amazing - saw them in a huge stadium in Melbourne, Australia - I think it was the Telstra Dome at the time, don't know if it has the same name now. Just a "show"! real spectacle.

And speaking of spectacle - Kylie Minogue's X Tour was just incredible.

David Gray always puts on a great show - I've seen him 3 times now I think. He is a brilliant musician and his drummer is totally mad.

Crowded House are always great - trying to talk my partner into seeing them tonight!

It was basically my life long dream to see Oasis, and I finally did in December of 2008. Seriously, I cried the day I bought tickets because I was so happy that I'd finally see them after 13 years of loving them. It was seriously one of the best gigs I have ever been to, I loved every minute of it. Liam was in top form, which is surprising enough, and Noel was just utterly amazing, so was Gem.
