Thread: Concerts that rocked your world?

    Concerts that rocked your world?

    For me, it was my first biggy, Glastonbury 1990.
    I was unemployed at the time and had just cashed my giro. Mate of mine comes up to me and says ''Glastonbury this weekend, you up for it?''
    I was.

    We thumbed a lift from Brynmawr and within two hours we were rocking up at the gates.
    Neither of us had a ticket, but we were there.
    Being there soon turned into getting in there as we found a gap in the fence and waltzed through.
    Acts that weekend included Happy Mondays and The Cure.

    We were in for free, tidy.

    King Crimson at the Capitol Theatre, Cardiff on October 29th 1971. It was packed. The music was brilliant and Peter Sinfield's light-show was magnificent. They started the concert off with, 'Cirkus.' Here's the track from 6 weeks earlier:

    Black Sabbath , supported by TOOL , Milton Keynes Bowl , Summer 1998

    Beautiful day , beautiful sunset 🌇 , original Sabbath line up , 20 years after their last studio album

    Ozzy and Bill Ward had cleaned themselves up

    They were immense , 2 hours of heavy riffing , pounding drums and bass

    They should have knocked it on the head after that and became a comedy act but they were untouchable that night 🌙

    The stone Roses, Ally Pally, I was with my first love

    The Chameleons, The Academy, 1998, Quashie was superb that night playing the didgeridoo

    Ian Brown, The Apollo 1999, top night followed by the music box dancing our nuts off all night

    LCD Sound system Cardiff 2010, the place was bouncing, absolutely rocking

    The Stone Roses, Wembley, 2017. They're not a stadium band, but this night was superb.

    Chemical Brothers Paris 2018

    She Drew The Gun, Deershed, 2019, there was just something about this gig that was so unbelievably emotional

    Rollercoaster Tour - 1992. Includes..

    My Bloody Valentine
    The Jesus and Mary Chain
    Blur
    Dinosaur Jr.

    Countless other concerts...

    In 2017 the Joshua Tree tour in Chicago was great

    The Roses at Newport Center.. infamous!

    Birdland at TJ's.. in fact most concerts at TJs. I think I lived there in my youth

    Have to say James are one of the best bands ive seen live.

    Genesis at Liverpool Empire 1974. Peter Gabriel was majestic as Brittania and the concert had a big effect on me. Thereís something about seeing your favourite band live for the first time. Itís been the same ever since.

    I was also at the Gabriel concert down the CIA and agree with you, he was really good. Genesis are my all time favourite band, and although I prefer the Gabriel years, their music does have an effect on me. That’s what music is supposed to do, isn’t it ?
