Some of my best memories are from concerts smile.gif Nothing better than seeing your favourite band / artist live!

My standout moments:

- BDO 2000. Blink 182, Foo Fighters, Red Hot Chilli Peppers, Nine Inch Nails, what more could you possibly ask for? It was 40 degrees, I had to throw out my socks because they got ruined, one of my toenails got so crushed (through big boots!) that it's never been the same, I bled from 3 places. It was blissful madness!

- Being lifted onto some guy's shoulders when Greenday played my favourite song of theirs (She) at Rock-it wub.gif

- A Shihad gig, I lost my friends and this group of bikie guys formed a circle around me so I wouldn't get squashed, they let me mosh into them and go nuts and then threw me up and I crowdsurfed all the way to the front. So much fun!

- The Snow Patrol gig last year. Every song they played was perfect, they're one of the best live bands I've ever seen

- Seeing Rage Against the Machine at the BDO!

- Dancing like a crazy person to Crystal Method cool.gif

I have only been to 4 concerts. Kylie Minogue, Live, Robbie Williams and Bon Jovi.

All very differeng but I don't think I can split Robbie and Bon Jovi. Singing to Angels with one crowd and Livin' on a Prayer are highlights wub.gif

- My First mosh pit concert, I was 12-13 it was at the local Youth Centre Superheist & Sick Puppies, I ended up with a broken toe, i got kicked in the collar bone by a crowd surfer and elbowed in the face, i came out of it all black and blue, it was so much fun!

- My first big day out - 2002 seeing Silverchair, Garbage, Something For Kate, Griners etc. The atmosphere was amazing, i'd never experienced anything like it, i got crushed up against the barricade when silverchair was playing, i was in so much pain but nothing was going to stop me from seeing my favourite band. I was 15 and it was so much fun, I have been every year since except this year because i'd only just given birth a few weeks earlier, I can't wait for the day when I can take Koby to the BDO

- Across the Great Divide Tour - Silverchair & Powderfinger, I was 8 months pregnant, singing along to every single song and having Koby kicking along to the music, it was amazing. Sometimes now Koby will sit in my lap and we'll watch the DVD of the show and he loves it. I love it that i've passed on my music tastes to my son.

The Bon Jovi concert earlier this year. Not a stand out moment as the whole concert was fantastic!!

A stand out moment at a concert would be the last Dixie Chicks concert, when they sang I'm Not Ready to Make Nice. It was so powerful, I had to wipe away tears from my eyes!

Oh I love concert moments that make you cry! When I saw Ben Folds play with a symphony orchestra and do The Luckiest I cried and decided it had to be my song for walking down the aisle wub.gif

- Bon Jovi concert earlier this year. I dont think I've ever danced and sung so much at a concert before
- Justin Timberlake Justified Tour - We had seats right near the side of the stage and spent the majority of the time looking at Cameron Diaz who was at the side of the stage. JT and Cam kept stealing looks at each other and she was blowing him kisses in the songs. It was so cute. Not a music moment really, but it was quiet cool to see.
- BDO 2004 - Seeing Metallica play in the middle of a thunderstorm. I dont even really like Metallica but it is something I'll always remember.

The Lenny Kravitz concert at Rod Laver - we all kept getting told off for dancing on the seats but the last encore was of course "Are you gonna go my way?" Incredible to see a whole stadium get to their feet, jump on their seat and simultaneously head bang. It was like one giant mexican wave of heads!

The Billy Joel / Elton John concert - so massive it filled the MCG. There will never be another concert with such talented musicians together. The way they duelled each other on piano trying to outdo one another. The way Elton played Billy's forbidden Uptown Girl and Billy played Elton's forbidden Candle in the Wind. Spectacular!

Going to a smaller university I got the opportunity to see the likes of Powderfinger, The 'Gurg (regurgitator), Rebecca's Empire, Something for Kate, Boom Crash Opera, Hoodoo Gurus, The Badloves all really close-up. Literally front row.

The Falls festival was also a highlight: REM members, Grinners, 'Gurg again, Alex Lloyd, John Butler Trio, 28 Days, Paul Kelly, George, Groove Terminator, Resin Dogs etc. etc. Not so much a concert as a temporary lifestyle you take on for a few days.

Stand outs for me:

Pearl Jam concert at the end of 2006 - when they played/sang "Black" the entire crowd was singing the "doo de doo doo doo de doo" 's at the end of it, and when the band stopped playing and Eddie stopped singing, the crowd continued with the doo de doo doo doo de doo for about another 30 seconds. The look on Eddie's face was priceless and I think it bought a tear to my eye!

Linkin Park last year singing a piano version of "Pushing me away". BEST. VERSION. EVER.

The crowd was belting it out along with Chester and it was one of the most awesome experiences smile.gif

Just thought of another -

Regina Spektor at The Tivolli was one of the last concerts I went to, she was amazing live, it was such a great venue for her show.

I think my most favourite concert experience was U2 Zooropa Tour, I was 50m away from the front of the stage. Nothing can top that one.

Others I've been to....
John Mellancamp in 89/90's
Phil Collins - awesome - in 90's
Billy Joel - 89?
BDO & Homebake in 99/2000
Michael Jackson
Rolling Stones
Robbie Williams

I think that's about it. Went mostly in the 90's.

U2 is the best though, nothing could beat it.


edit.... ooops forgot about Human Nature - that was pretty good

I know a lot of people can't stand Kanye West but his Sydney Opera House concert with a live Symphony Orchestra was quite an experience.

That and BoyzIIMen 2007 Sydney concert. I was right in front and I got a rose from Nate, OMG, OMG!!! Hubby wasn't impressed that I was accepting a rose from another man a month before our wedding rolleyes.gif.
