I love going to concerts. some of the standouts are:
U2 -Zooropa (looking forward to the Vertigo tour too)
INXS (unfortunatly without Michael Hutchence )
R.E.M. (I was pleasantly surprised by how great this concert was)
Neil Diamond (seen him twice, not bad for an oldie. his music rocks!)
Noiseworks (Jon Stevens!!! what more can I say)
I've seen heaps of Aussie groups too but I won't mention them as no one will know them.

ahhh i recently went to the big day out on the gold coast. it was all sweet except for the fact that the power cut out halfway thru mudvaynes set. a mosh pit with lots of angry metal fans is not a safe place to be. the white stripes and franz ferdinand were awesome, but iggy went for way too long. i think hes a bit too old now, the crowd didnt really know much of his stuff.
Painstaking devotion and love
Surrendered to self preservation
From others who care for themselves
A blindness that touches perfection
But hurts just like anything else
Isolation, isolation, isolation

Bauhaus. Manchester Academy.
Last night...fucking awesome.
The minute I walked into the Academy, I knew this was going to be something special. The atmosphere was charged and the place was buzzing with anticipation.
From the off they kicked arse. The flow only being interrupted due to some dickhead launching a can of lager at Pete Murphy. Murphy returned the can, at speed in the general direction from where it came, to applause.
Nothing was going to spoil the night. If anything it increased the energy and excitement in the venue.
Highlights among many were...Dark Entries, She's In Parties, In The Flat Field, Terror Couple Kill Colonel.
Oncour's (sp?) were; covers of Joy Divisions, 'Transmission' (that brought the house down). Bolan's, 'Telegram Sam', Bowie's, 'Ziggy Stardust' and to finish the night perfectly, 'Bela Lugosi's Dead'.
This band's material from 1979-83 is nothing less than remarkable. What a shame they didn't produce more. Much like the Faulty Towers comedy series, all the better for it.
Like I said fucking awesome!
