Concerts/Artists you have seen/Are planning to see

Recommended Posts

I'm excited to go see Gary Lightbody perform a solo show next Wednesday in Napa, CA! I'm going with my mom and its only a 45 minute drive. I'll be the guy shouting, "Play Signal Fire!!" Haha.


Oh man Signal Fire never fails me. Always makes me crying all the time. It's so emotional.

That's a pretty nice list there! Hope you enjoyed the Frank Turner set yesterday... it's not often that you get such an intimate, up close look at an artist! I hope you enjoy U2 tonight as well :) I saw them for the 2nd time back in June and it was amazing... I think the new tour is the best they've been in more than a decade.

Yeah, the Frank Turner show was really, really special. It was in a tiny hotel bar with only 50 people in the audience... Great setlist balanced between a few hits and quite a few rarities and covers (including an equally hilarious and amazing mash-up of Meat Loaf's Bat Out of Hell and Bruce Springsteen's Thunder Road)... Plus, being the nice guy that he is, he came to hang out in the bar a few minutes after the show to talk to everyone there.


U2 were fun too, but I felt kind of underwhelmed by the whole show... was kind of expecting it to be a bit more exciting(?) or something like that. Guess I may be a bit spoiled with the amount of great shows I've seen the past few years - I'm not that easily impressed anymore :P

The prodigy x 6 (Creamfields,Doncaster Dome,Brixton Academy, Manchester victoria warehouse, Cardiff arena, Dublin arena)


Bon jovi x 5 (R.D.S dublin x 3, Maine Road manchester, Stoke stadium)


Robbie Williams x 3 (manchester arena x2, Phoenix park dublin)


Foo Fighters (Etihad Manchester)


U2 - Just the once at Wembley on the 360 tour!


Kasabian x 2 (Venue cymru llandudno, Birmingham arena)

There aren't many bands left i'd like to see, i would of loved to of seen linkin park, even had tickets for the last tour they did but it was cancelled because of the manchester bombings and then of course sadly chester passed away, Wouldn't mind seeing chemical brothers again, only ever seen them at festivals, gutted i missed them at manchester arena on friday


Also hoping Oasis do a re-union tour at some point!
