    Sheer Heart Attack tour. That must have been absolutely insanely good. I would have loved to have been there, notwithstanding the fact that it was a few years before I was born!

    Yeah The Prodigy were really good but I was there to see Oasis :)
    I was at the McAlpine stadium REM gig. Oasis were supposed to be supporting though but pulled out the week of the gig.

    AC/DC in Sheffield about 1977 and Thin Lizzy also Sheffield about the same time.
    Scissor Sisters about 3 or 4 years ago in Manchester. They absolutely blew the roof off the place.
    Oh, and Sarah Jane Morris at Ronnie Scott's seven or eight years back.
