I''ve not been able to go to as many gigs as I used to since becoming a dad about 8 months ago but now summer is here I've been to Isle of Wight and on the 1st of July I'll be standing in awe as I listen to the dark side of the moon as performed by Roger Waters & Nick Mason.

It started me wondering if anyone will be at Hyde Park and just in general about who you've seen live this year, who sucked, who rocked etc etc.....

I saw Disturbed in Christchurch NZ a couple of months ago, 7 hour road trip from here each way. Was a great conceret and trip all round, got shitfaced, survived the front of the moshpit and had some f*ckers try to steal my car in Oamaru, two thumbs up I'd say :cheers:

i cant remember wheither it was this year, it might have been very late last year, but the foo fighters. undoubtably the best night of my life. got about a meter from mr grohl, and watched him do a dumb solo. f***ing brilliant. stacked actors - f*** me.

also saw deep purple. smoke on the water - you could tell they had played that about 304581948621530962059862 times. but the rest of there songs were awesome, most notibly hush and highway star.

AAHHH! NOOOOOOO not edge fest!!

Although i was a huge fan of the presedents back when they where good, ie. peaches days. So i was thinking just going to see them, however i couldnt stand the idea of standing in a mini mosh with heaps of 13 year old, punk wanabes. Its just not right somehow. lol

Oh and yeah that Foo concert was late last year.

This year has been slim pickings for me, only local acts down the King Billy (a local bikers pub) and a reigge/rock band who I gave up on after 2 songs.

I went to see The Jamm at the endo of last tear though. Wouldn't have known that it wasn't The Jam themselves if I'd had a few more beers before going in.

Well, just won tickets to see Muse at a special gig at Shepherd's Bush Empire. Go me :D

Also seeing them on their Autumn tour in London and Lyon hopefully.

I might also be seeing Sigur Ros at Southampton and Apartment at 100 Club...

I'm not the biggest Coldplay fan but the tickets and beer were free. They actually put on a good show though, so I wouldn't judge them unless you've seen them live.

I've been to  Hilltop Hoods
Did they put on a good show? I'm a big fan of their albums.[/b]
Yeah mate they were very energetic. It was great. Even Fanning who came on after them gave them huge wraps.
