I've been to quite a few, though none recently (most recent was Guns N Roses last year at the London Stadium,where Axl Rose sang God Save The Queen,among others ).
I also saw Boyzone years ago now in Manchester UK (it was my girlfriend's birthday,I don't like them,honest!). We were surrounded by drunk women old enough to be my grandmother yelling at Ronan Keating to pull his pants down. And yes,that really was the most memorable part of the concert for me. The 'music' was crap,but my girlfriend was happy, that's what mattered

@Bebu Steve Stevens is a legend (although he has a terrible name, I don't care that it's a stage name, it's still terrible.) He played the guitar on one of my top 3 (if not my number 1) MJ track, Dirty Diana.
Speaking of guitarists that Michael worked with, Jennifer Batten- absolutely incredible, she could play the Beat It solo just as well (if not better) than Van Halen. If you have 2 minutes to spare in your day, watch this.

Sounds like it was awesome, @Beatlebug! Glad you enjoyed it!
I would have never thought that anything Zeppelin-related would happen at a Muse concert, but then again, I thought the same thing when I saw Ringo a few years ago. But lo and behold, Ringo spotted someone in the crowd who looked a little like Jimmy Page/was wearing a Led Zeppelin shirt, made a joke about Jimmy Page being in the audience, and Steve Lukather played the intro to Stairway.
In all honesty, I would have absolutely loved to hear Ringo sing it.

Muse nodding to Zeppelin seems even more unlikely than Ringo, because at least he's one of the fellow classic-rockers; but then again, they're fans of Hendrix and have played 'Back In Black' with Brian Johnson -- not to mention jamming with Dr. Pepper's Jaded Hearts Club Band -- so I think it's safe to say they have a healthy appreciation for the golden oldies.
And hahaha Ringo singing 'Stairway to Heaven'
