Xolo1974 Posted March 17, 2018 Share Posted March 17, 2018 Ok, I was born in December ‘74. So I don’t have the spectrum that many do on this forum. I reckon it’s an interesting topic though. Surprisingly enough, my number one gig was only a few weeks ago. Didn’t think I’d be saying that at the age of 43. 1. Roger Waters - Perth 2018. 2. AC/DC - Donington 1991. As a 16 year old, great show. Opening song - Thunderstruck 3. Roger Waters (The Wall) - Perth 2012. 4. Gomez - Melbourne 2002. 5. The Black Crowes - The Royal Court, Liverpool, England (1991 or 1992 I cant remember it was after their first album). 6. Pearl Jam - Perth 2009 - The year I emigrated, waited years to see them. Great show. 7. Buddy Guy - Fremantle Blues and Roots festival 2012. Best guitarist I’ve ever seen live. By a country mile 8. Roger Waters - Bangkok, 2002 (during a 9 month backpacking trip to SE Asia and Australia - where I met Mrs Burbridge - the Aussie). 9. Gary Moore - Liverpool Royal Court 2000. Great show. Very modest and humble man. Brilliant guitarist. 10. Metallica - Donington 1991. Not a massive fan, but they blew me away. One week after the release of the Black album. Sadly, Page and Plant 1998 in Manchester UK do not make the cut. Terrible acoustics at the Manchester Evening Arena. An off night for JP as well. Worst gig - there’s been some shockers - The Stones (Steel Wheels tour in Manchester UK in 1991 - they were shite....basically, just too old, sterile, a parody of themselves), U2 in Manchester in the Vertigo tour (I was expecting them to be shite and they didn’t disappoint - went as a favour to a mate). But the wooden spoon goes to Guns N Roses in Manchester in 1993. Absolute Crap. After having the midweek gig cancelled and rescheduled to the Sunday, they came on stage 2.5 hours late and played 1 hour 20 minutes at a stadium gig. Nearly incited a riot. When the crowd were less than impressed “hey fuck you” was all Slash had to say. Nobhead. Got the brains of a fuckin rocking horse. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
