    For me it was Heaven 17, Penthouse and Pavement tour in November.
    It only took them 30 years to get around to touring the album!

    Kasabian headlining at V festival in August last year. My other faves from the weekend included White Lies, Editors, Florence and the Machine, Madness and Faithless. Roll on V 2011! :D
     
  6. Gary Numan. Went to DC in October, after waiting about 27 years I finally got to see him.

    My most memorable V moment is Queens of the Stone Age (V 2003?). Mark Lanagan on vocals for Hangin Tree.

    Haven't done Leeds or V for a couple of years now, makes my back hurt :(
     
  9. Blind Guardian at the Palladium in Boston. best show ever, before that was primus

    Metallica in May(haven't been to any in ages :().

    Waited over 3 hours, stood in the front row, caught two picks and a massive beach ball :D


    EDIT: Come to think of it, that isn't the last one, I've seen a bunch of small local bands since. Can't remember the names, etc though...

    "The Wall" was by far the best show I have ever seen! I hope it comes out on DVD after the Berlin show. I have seen The Trans-Siberian Orchestra three times so far. The really cool thing is I live on the west side of Ohio, the west coast tour comes as far east as Fort Wayne so I have gotten to see both of the different bands that perform the shows. They played some songs from their upcoming album "Gutter Ballet", should be a great show also!

    Roger Water "The Wall" tickets were $150 a piece. If any show was worth it, that one was. AC/DC is the band I have seen the most often, I went to "Powerage" in '78, "For Those About to Rock" in '81 and "Who Made Who" in '86.

    Makes my back hurt too! Both the lugging gear from the car and the standing for hours on end. I'm far too old for it really, but I minimise the weight what I take as much as possible and wear the best shoes I can for comfort, and if it's a few band I'm not worried about being up front for, I sit down on the grass at the back. I'll keep going until the pain becomes absolutely unbearable! Lol.

    $90 for Nightwish but that included a Meet and Greet, signing, and Photo op as well as the concert.
     

  20. i am extremely envious, was this when tarja was the singer or that new one? I wish I had gotten around to seeing them back then :(


    most I ever paid for a ticket was i think like 150/ticket (bought 5 total for friends and gf going still havent been payed back GRRR) or something like that, I preordered VIP Pit tickets for last years mayhem so I could do the whole meet and greet deal with rob zombie. was pleasantly surprised that I got to see avenged sevenfold too.

    The Black Keys at Stubbs in Austin a few months ago. That ended about a 15 year drought from the last concert I saw, Soundgarden in the mid '90's.
