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!



I think I was at that concert! Hubby and I were singing our hearts out!

My stand outs include the above and:
  • Sigur Ros at the Enmore Theatre. I cried, I lost time, I was transported. It's a whole body experience
  • Jewel at the Opera House. Just her and a guitar, it blew me away.
  • Rufus Wainright at the Basement. He's so immensely talented and hilarious to boot.
  • I saw Alannis Morrisette play in a boardroom to 20 people years ago at work. She is so clear and beautiful in real life and that VOICE! My God! It was when Hands Clean had been released and I still love that song
  • Nelly at Homebush. I just love him.

geez, my music tastes are eclectic when I look at it like that!

Eurythmics - Annie Lennox is a goddess and just gets better with age.

Prince - I went twice and each concert was a bit different, he seemed to 'tailor' his performances to his audience and their reactions/feedback, and I was surprised at how much sexier he is in real life!

Bette Midler - not just an incredible voice, but a wonderful comedian (she had us in fits of laughter all through). It was like a musical and stand up rolled into one and the sets were superb.

I would go to see any of these performers again in a heartbeat.

I've only ever been to 3 major artist concerts and they were all awesome in their own right.

Saw Jamiroquai back in 2003 (rod laver) (?) he was awesome!!!! He really got into the show and was jumping all over the stage and it was just spectacular.

Saw Dido in Melbourne, Life for rent tour (rod laver again) she was also awesome, I just love her voice and it was such a fantastic performance, even though she forgot the words at one point, the audience just lauged it off. I would definately see her again.

Weird Al Yankovic, Straight Outta Lynwood tour 2007, despite the concert starting at least two hours late and half the audience giving up and leaving in disgust, it was a good concert in the end, all the bells and whistles, a huge medley and some really funny moments.

As for a lesser known band, I always try and catch Tripod during the comedy festival or durinng pod August nights and I've never been disappointed.

- Front row at Hilltop Hoods, getting a hug from Suffa!

- Angus & Julia Stone at 2007 Falls Festival, so amazingly perfect. Actually, so were The Waifs and Claire Bowditch.

- Mattaffix, also at Falls 2007, such a fantastic performer, one of the most perfect moments I have had with hubby.

- Pink in Sydney last year, she is amazing, love her to bits.

- Missy Higgins and Ben Lee at A Day on the Green

- Chris Isaak... wub.gif

- The whole crowd bouncing at The Herd concert at the local uni

- Hoodoo Gurus at Falls '06, had the best time in the front row with one of my friends.

That would have been awesome, I have seen them live 3 times and they are just unreal.

I saw Tripod before they got 'big'. I will never forget the comedy gig they did where they mixed everyone's songs together - like Aqua's Barbie Girl to a slow song and mixed all of Oasis' songs together to make one song. They are so highly underrated in Australia, they are an amazing talent.

Best ever moment by a long shot would be at one of the open air music festivals , Summerfieldayze, when Tiesto played 'Silence' while we danced in the pouring rain. In was magical, the music, the crowd, and whole atmosphere just gelled perfectly. smile.gif

The Foo Fighters earlier this year - acoustic version of My Hero - waves and waves of goosebumps. And I funally got to hear Everlong live

Metallica in 2004 at the Myer Music Bowl - just as the opening guitar strains of 'One' were played, it starts raining lightly, and as it got into the heavy part, so did the rain. Awesome moshing and very muddy on the way out!

Bowie in 2004 - Playing Heroes. Beautiful

The Tea Party.. in particular the songs Psychopomp and Save Me. No drugs but I was on another planet... totally transported to some weird place. Amazing what some music has the power to do.

"Okay Mum, so if we can't find it at THIS place... Screw it!! Right?!"

"Show Dadda your dance Mama! I like it when people laugh at you!" Finn, 5

Pearl Jam at the Sidney Myer Music Bowl, 1995. I was 16...

I remember turning around and seeing the fence being torn down and hundreds of people from the outside running in! It was an awesome, awesome concert, I am so glad I went!


My happy little boy!
