What are the best gigs you've seen this year??

Hey all,

What is the best concert you've seen this year?? My stones shows are about to come up in Slane and London but having seen them last year in Sheffield and Glasgow and having endured the massacre that is the biggest bang I really am in doubt as to whether they can top these two shows from this year

Brian Wilson - Brillant show no 50 ft screens or fireworks just all about the music. Sang his heart out!!

Equally so

The who in the marquee Cork - Without doubt one of the best shows I've have ever witnessed in my whole life. On a par with the Stones in the Point Dublin on the 9th & 11th of September 2003. Quite literally out of this World. Reasonable ticket price €70 compared to €120 for the Stones at Slane. We won't even mention London smiling smiley

Velvet Revolver
Smashing Pumpkins
Lcd Soundsystem

The Police weren't bad although i was a little disappointed in them. They reworked some of the songs, and i think if you haven't toured as a band for over 20 years, you shouldn't be doing that. Not on the first tour back together anyway.
And i doubt The Police will do anything else after this tour

Can we also throw in 2006? That way I could include going to see the RCMH concert... by sheer luck.

On the night of the show, I took the subway over to Rockefeller Center at 8 pm after work. I called my wife and said, "It doesn't look like I'll get in... I'll be home in about an hour." I walked around the block. On 51st, I saw that the side lobby doors had been opened for the intermission. Concert-goers were standing outside smoking and talking on the sidewalk within a barricaded area. Security personnel stood nearby watchfully. A security guard parted the barricades, allowing two guys to leave the enclosure. As they were walking away from the hall, I ran over to them. "Excuse me, are you guys leaving the concert?" "Yes," one of them said, explaining that he wasn't feeling well. "Would you be willing to give me your ticket?" I asked. "Sure, good luck," he said, handing me his ticket. I raced around the corner towards the main entrance at 50th Street and Sixth Avenue.

It was intermission, there were many concert-goers milling about. I held out the ticket for someone to scan. I was already a few paces past him by the time he looked down at his electronic scanner, and noticed that this ticket had already been used by someone. "Were you already inside?" he asked me, looking at all the smokers and people milling around out front. "Did you just come outside during the intermission?" "Yes," I answered, and I quickly hurried away inside, into the middle of the opulent lobby of Radio City, amid the intermission crowd, dumbstruck. I climbed up the grand stairs to the third mezzanine.

Halfway through the Stones' set, I made my way downstairs (where I felt I was needed), where I found an empty aisle seat and I enjoyed the rest of the amazing show. Perhaps it was me being on the floor near the stage... it seemed like the Stones had kicked it up a notch, and they really rocked out during the second half. They sounded great. While they were playing "Sympathy For The Devil," Keith climbed some narrow stairs at the side of the stage. He continued to climb... his path continuing upward past the empty loge seats at the side of the hall, until he was near the first mezzanine and he couldn't go any further. There, right above me, Keith Richards played his solo for "Sympathy." This was a Stones fan's dream. But this was not a dream. This really happened.

This year?
I would have to say Johnny Winter at the Canyon Club in Agoura Hills, CA since it is the only show I've been to so far this year. I expect that to change this Saturday night at Slane.

Stones in Rome July 6th - well, also the only show i've seen this year - but I'm sure it would have been the best no matter what.
