The "I was there" gig video thread
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.Posted 5 years ago
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.Posted 5 years agoslackaliceMember
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.Posted 5 years agoracefaceec90Member

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
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! 🙂Posted 5 years agoTooTallMember
Posted the first one before. From 30 sec, the bloke with the big flat top and glasses in front of the lead singer – me:
I also worked this one:
I saw some good bands at their peak when I were a lad 😀Posted 5 years ago
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.

I’m normally quite rude about comeback tours, but this was quite close to being a religious experience for me.
Amen to that. Depends who’s making the comeback. This one was a bit of a spiritual experience for me last year…
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!!!!Posted 5 years agojohndohMember
I won’t bother with a link, a video will never come close to the experience.
And it was only last year.
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.Posted 5 years agowhatnobeerMember
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 😀Posted 5 years agohiggoMember
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….
