    Hmmm...

    Probably Mogwai at the Sydney Opera House earlier this year. Huge post-rock sound from some guys from Glasgow in the main concert hall was a pretty surreal experience - even they were confused as to how it happened.

    Bruce Sprinsteen and the E Street Band circa 1984.

    Looking forward to Florida Georgia Line next year (just shows what ageing does to you).

    U2 (back in the Joshua Tree days)
    Casiopea
    Allan Holdsworth (playing at a local pub of all places!!)

    Actually not a live "band" as such but Paco Pena and John Williams (guitarist) live on stage together - awesome!!!

    Back when they were still good ;)

    I've been listening to quite a bit of Paco Pena lately.

    Thats where the Spanish ñ can make a difference from n. His name is Paco Peña.

    Pena is a pain or a pity (plus other meanings); peña is a rock or a crowd.

    But English language keyboards make it difficult to use the correct letter.

    I thought I was at that one, but more like 2001 for me. Anyway, was amazing.

    I've seen Cat Empire and Michael Franti each a few times. One of those would be my pick.

    How does one pick. All are good in their own way.

    But I really liked Faithless, Jan 2002 at the Metro in Melbourne. Incredible energy and a good vibe.

    Seen a few over the years but no one gets close to AC/DC.
    Would have loved to catch Faithless too.

    Mine would be Jimmy Eat World at the Enmore a few years back or Coheed and Cambria at soundwave, also a few years ago.

    Not sure if it was the right amount of rum and a small venue but JEW was such a great gig, I had never experienced such an appreciative crowd. Saw Kings of Leon at the same venue 2 years ago and was very disappointed. Must have got the rum mix wrong.
