    Thunder. Dirty Love.

    Danny can’t dance, but damn what a voice! Was at The ‘Smith. Great night out. Supported by the marvellous The Answer, IIRC.

    I was at this one, too, can’t find a vid though.

    They seem to have pulled all the clips from the Carter USM reform DVD down from youtube, but there’s a nice closup of me covered in blood in the middle of Rent :mrgreen:

    Great CG—-I had completely forgotten about Rick Wakeman and that “Journey” album. Wow, that brings back some great memories—takes more and more effort to bring the memories back it seems πŸ˜†

    Reading fest 1991. They came on at about 3pm on Saturday. Everything after that was an anticlimax. The random mohawk dancer climbed on stage and threw shapes to his hearts content.

    Same tour, different venue – I caught them at Wembley Arena…

    Epic band that are always better live than recorded IMO.

    Daphne and Celeste (who?) getting bottled offstage at Reading 2000, I was trying to find footage of Kevin Rowland dressed in full suspenders etc. at Reading the previous year, but it doesn’t seem to be online.

    I might try and dig out some video of Editors circa 2000 or so…might have it on tape somewhere.

    Oooh! Good thread!

    Het Teasel, I saw them on their Farewell to Kings tour, amazing. Can’t remember what year that was, but I saw them in Southampton at the Gaumont and +many for Rush being a superb live band.

    I was here too…

    Hah, that was a Reading classic bokonon. Not so much the bottling, as the reaction- Daphne and Celeste baiting the crowd beforehand then charging into the fire like the light brigade. 50 Cent couldn’t face down the Reading bottling, those girls were hard as nails.

    And still better than Oasis.

    Could have been a couple of years earlier, the 90s are all a bit of a blur.

    Rage Against the Machine just as they were going huge.

    I was here, one of these stage divers is me. The video was shown on Top of the Pops and my mates Mum recognised me and rang my Mum to tell on me!

    The Royal Festival Hall had certainly never seen anything like that before! David Hemmings was the narrator. I think everyone in the audience felt that they were watching something pretty special. 8)

    Loads of fantastic memories but some get recalled easier than others! πŸ™‚

    Cities in the park 1991. I’ve been looking for this footage for years and it’s just popped up on a youtube search thanks to this thread.

    I’m normally quite rude about comeback tours, but this was quite close to being a religious experience for me.

    I was at this gig – Nirvana at the Astoria in ’89 (Lamefest), as covered in Q’s Ten Best Gigs of All Time piece:

    I was also at SOAS when Nirvana played there, before the Astoria gig I think – possibly their first-ever in the UK? – and that one really was something special. Better than the Astoria gig, better venue, more intense, more sweat, actually truly awesome.

    More Lamefest:

    Amen to that. Depends who’s making the comeback. This one was a bit of a spiritual experience for me last year…

    [video]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oLZxhnpQQf0[/video]

    The place went mental when they launched into I wanna be Adored

    unklehomered – I was lucky enough to be at one of the Pixies last gigs just before they split up. At Manchester Apollo. They were ****ing awesome!!!!

    I won’t bother with a link, a video will never come close to the experience.

    And it was only last year.

    19/05/2012

    And just 2,500 or so of us there.

    Black Sabbath at the O2 Academy, Birmingham.

    And I got right to the front.

    Amazing. Simply stunning.

    No fancy set, just 4 guys on a stage.

    Flashy, I’ll take your “Thunder” OP, and give you the first band I ever saw live at the first proper gig I ever went to.

    Franz Ferdinand at T in the Park at the peak of their fame. Probably the biggest crowd of the weekend, in the sunshine, 30000 or so pissed Scots bouncing up and down non stop for 3 1/2 minuets. Close up of me at 1:35 as well πŸ˜€

    I was there (but not there) at Stonehenge in 1984 for Hawkwind.

    I also went to see Flux Of Pink Indians who had an Icelandic support act, KUKL with a rather odd female vocalist. I can’t find any live footage so have this instead….

    I was in the audience at the very first live gig of this in 1974. No vid of them playing, only the live recording.
