Tool at BDO this year was the best, seeing Danny play live was awsome just because seeing his drumming and how he plays was really interesting to watch.

Queens of the stone age a few years ago was good at the Thebby in Adelaide, free tickets helped :P

Beastie Boys at BDO 2 years ago

I actually liked Steve Vai, he's a chop but still put on a good show.

 

The worst i've been to was a local gig where a fight broke out between 'rage dancers' and the lead singer of one of the bands. The lead singer got tossed out of the gig.

Favorite gigs:

Wilco earlier this year, at the Palais - Awesome gig.

World's End Girlfriend @ Corner Hotel, a few months ago

 

Also worth a mention, Spun Rivals - f**king rock out at every gig, and Little Red - the most fun band I know. Both are local (Melbourne) bands, and play fairly often. Also from Melb - Because of Ghosts - now touring Canada.

 

Worst gigs:

Richard Buckner @ Corner Hotel earlier this year - was with Edith Frost, which almost made up for it

 

Hmmm... these all seem to be from this year... I wonder who I've forgotten.

 

Tonight - Justice!!!

haha worst act i've seen was Murder Dolls @ BDO 2003 in Adelaide. some dude in the crowd threw a water bottle at the lead singer, so he stopped everything, and went stupid at this dude, threatening to kill him. i thought it was funny.

 

:P

After last night, Sufjan Stevens definitely gets a big mention.

 

Battles are reputed to be fantastic live - come the 29th I guess I'll know for sure :)

 

Oh, and another local (Melb) act - the Papernecks. Good stuff. Matt Storey is such a dreamboat :wub:

1998, Metallica, Rod Laver Arena, playing for about 3hrs.

 

Best concert ever, the pyrotechnic's and shit were insane.

 

I was 14, surrounded by big dudes with beards and tattoo's, was such a fun night.

The very best show i have been to would be Marilyn Manson on his Rape Of The World Tour 2007, SA. so full of energy..

 

Going to see Ozzy Osbourne 16th of March or something in Melb, should be great.

 

Also going to see Bullet Fore My Valentine/Atreyu/Avenged Sevenfold on the 8th of May.

completely forgot i created this thread. i've got a new 'best gig' to add to my list

 

IRON MAIDEN in Sydney.

 

was a fair effort to get there - got free tickets on Friday before the show, had to hire a car Sunday morning to drive from Canberra to Sydney, got back to Canberra at about 3am Monday morning and started work completely deaf and unable to talk at 8 that morning.

 

i'd happily do it 3 times a week to see Maiden play. brilliant show!
