Seeing Noddy Holder on telly today reminded me i just wished i had seen Slade around 71 – 72 .They played in the Bishops Barn in Wells in Somerset , i was old enough can't remember why i didn't go .Would have been a right raucous night i reckon .Posted 8 years ago

Been very lucky to see most of my favourite bands in their prime, but missed out on Springsteen at Wembley around the mid 80's
Had a ticket, but did my leg in and couldn't make it.
The other one would be Free,just missed them and had to put up with Bad CoPosted 8 years ago

Saw them on the R+S tour, was too late even then really. They were great though 🙂
For me there are loads:
Talk Talk, but only the last 2 albums, which they didn't tour at the time.
Bjork, but I saw her last year and she's still got it.
Future Sound of London
My Bloody Valentine
Bonnie Prince Billy, who I saw but can't remember 😳 and subsequently became a huge fan of
One piece of advice I'd give anyone is if you really love an album, then go see the band on that tour. Nothing worse than seeing someone hoping for them to play older stuffPosted 8 years agoroperMember
I would have loved to have seen the premier of Beethoven's Symphony No. 9 in D minor, Op. 125 "Choral or Ode To Joy at the Theater am Kärntnertor.
He hadn't been at a performance in public for years and suffered bad ill health. He was also totally deaf at this point and very unpopular with the public. He conducted the performance stood next to the official conductor. He immersed himself in the piece but was out of time. He continued to conduct vigorously when the symphony had finished. One of the singers approached him and turned him round to face the jubilant audience. The same audience which had pretty much given up on him. He received 5 standing ovations for writing one of the best Symphonies of all time.
I would have loved to have seen that performance.Posted 8 years agosc-xcMember
The few times i saw nirvana they weren't all that. Not bad, but hardly earth shattering – give me mudhoney instead any day.
Mudhoney blew them off the stage. As did Tad. And virtually every other guitar band of that era.

The Smiths. They split when I was 13 so a little to young to go on my own.Posted 8 years ago
Stone Roses. I know they were shite live but it would of been nice to say i'd seen them live.
Would love to have seen Johnny Cash live.
hh45 – Saw Nirvana at the Astoria just before Nevermind went mental, you didn't miss much. They were very tight but like Oasis they were very overrated, imo of course. 😉mastiles_fanylionMember
Definitely Pink Floyd, 100% I would pay lots (I am talking hundreds, perhaps around £1000) to see them now, even without Syd Barrett.
I was lucky enough to see Queen live at Maine Road (with Status Quo supporting) just after Live Aid and the atmosphere was absolutely electric.Posted 8 years ago
