Concerts to See Before You Die?
@konphusion, Having looked over this years line up I have to ask what the big deal is? I’m just curious because the majority of the names on there do all the major circuit tours and don’t bring a great deal of diversity to the table.
There is EDM out there that gives a far more enriching experience than people such as David Guetta, Skrillex, Afrojack, Tiesto and Deadmau5.
I was so gutted I missed The Wall tour!!
I had been at the bar with my brother and, at the bus stop, a couple asked me for directions to the coach station. I noticed they were wearing shirts of The Wall and it had been on in town that night!! £50 for cheapest tickets wasn’t possible at the time anyway but it would have been cool.
I agree with @Manimal on THE PRODIGY. They were awesome and I’d see them again for sure.
Leonard Cohen was really a superb concert. He is playing again in London June but the tickets are again so expensive. I was right at the front for the show I saw though. Row 7, seat in the dead centre. AMAZING!
Rage Against The Machine are intense live. I was at the free gig in Finsbury Park and it was brilliant. They are highly recommended!
KISS for the stage show. LOL! But seriously…it is good. Smoke a doobie first.
THE LIBERTINES (actually, they weren’t that good in reality but at the time…incredible).
I was suprised at how good Pendulum were when I saw them but then saw them again elsewhere and they weren’t very good at all. Different crowd maybe? It was a metal fesitval the first songs so maybe the setlist reflected that? Voodoo People remix came up! :D
I think that’s it from me.
I would have liked to have seen R.E.M, too.
If I could I would have loved to have seen Bob Marley in Dortmund or at the London Lyceum. For the former, for Redemption Song. For the latter, for Trenchtown Rock. Really though, any Bob gig would be fine by me. But those two are my favourites.
You have no idea how much that term is laughed at in the UK.
@staylucky, Aphex twin is a shaftmaster, he just blows your head off with eardrum blasting crazy jungle beats and plays fuck all of his tunes. Iv’e seen him thrice and he has mostly shafted me with crazy 7000 bpm screeching noises especially towards the end of his sets it just gets ridiculous >:( having said that he did play Synthaconn 9 from The Tuss the last time I saw him, which was the only recognizable tune amidst a facemashing evil evil set >:( He probably is worth seeing though, as according to youtube he sometimes likes to indulge his audiences in value for money, by, you know, playing his actual music.
Below are some glorious tunes. Behold!
heh heh heh >:)
@misterkal, Man, Roger is touring again next year. I saw him last year and felt the warm thrill of confusion, that space cadet glow :] He’s back in Dublin at least next September, and is no doubt gonna tour the UK too.
Bring yourself!!… And your obligatory Hendrix perm
@myexistence, He played recently and my mates were blown away by him. Apparently he played a similar set to what you are describing (they felt as though they were in a late 80′s/early 90′s jungle rave) but that’s OK with me.
I love his Ambient Works stuff but I’d just be down to let the man play whatever he feels. That’s why I enjoyed James Lavelle so much. He just went in there and dropped records for a good 3 hours (everywhere from hip to hop to electronic to Chris Isaak). I like DJ sets that give me a look into the mixers mind, and that’s why my favourite has always been Zabiela :)
£66 is kinda steep but worth it
@tlrlittle, gonna be at both weekends of ultra if all goes as planned. holla.
