Stranglers (Hugh Cornwall's last tour with them)

And the great post punk 80s:

For modern bands, Black Rebel Motorcycle Club are kings.

Best gigs experiences have to be my two Glastonburys (1992 and 2004)

When I posted this reply I was very new to the boards and just listed a few of my favourites. But I now have a better understanding of what the majority of posters here like! Just wanted to let you know I've also seen the following (I'm trying to make friends!):

Pink Floyd,

Rolling Stones,

Black Crows,

David Bowie,

the Cult,

Motorhead...

... well, there is some proper rock there anyway!

Latest one was Boz Scaggs, about a month ago. He's still great. Don't care to hear him sing "standards" though. Why are so many artists reverting to this? Because of the success of Rod Stewart? To lend a mature credibility to their careers? Whatever it is, I don't like it.

But Boz's other stuff? Outstanding!

The Beach Boys was my first concert, and to be honest, i dont remember a thing about it. i've also been to see two christian bands: Audio Adrenaline and Sonic Flood.

those are the only concerts, but hey, i live in a small town, we dont get many good musicans to come her, and i'm also only sixteen so i havent had many opportunites to see anyone.

I've heard nothing about new recordings. Actually, the whole reunion tour hit me like a brick wall. I got a ticket just 'cause I was curious. To be honest, I wasn't expecting much since their glory days rest in the times of Doolittle, and there wasn't a chance for me to see them then. They played in top form in yesterday's show, so a new release would really be cool. They still got it after so many years.

I never saw the Beatles live but I´ve dreamed of a great concert they gave in a bar. I also dreamed of an incredibly Pink Floyd live... That was when I was younger. As a former rock journalist I´ve seen so many concerts that now I love to stay home at night!

But the one that thrilled me the most was the Psychedelich Furs checking sound before a concert for TV. They played for near half and a hour, they were feeling really good... and there I was, with them and two or three more people... checking sound! That night they were great, but the sound check was another thing.

I´ve seen maybe six or eight times Lou Reed and he never deceived me.

And I remember Violent Femmes live in a club, in Paris... one of the most exciting concerts!

I was at the first Rolling Stones gig in Madrid, they performed under a summer storm and that was real magic! They still are magic on stage...
