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 ahdn_john_08_gif).

 

I also saw Boyzone years ago now in Manchester UK (it was my girlfriend’s birthday,I don’t like them,honest!a-hard-days-night-paul-5). 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! john-lennon-salute_gifapple01heartapple01

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.a-hard-days-night-george-9

In all honesty, I would have absolutely loved to hear Ringo sing it. a-hard-days-night-paul-7

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’ a-hard-days-night-ringo-10

Groups / Singers I’ve seen live over the years … in no particular order and don’t have exact dates …

Rockpile, Undertones, Status Quo, Judas Priest at a rock festival 1979

Dr. Feelgood, late 70s

The Jam, farewell tour, 82?

Elvis Costello x 2, mid 80s

Van Morrison x 2, late 80s

Paul McCartney at Kings Dock, Liverpool, Flowers In The Dirt Tour, late 80s

Steve Hackett. mid/late 80s

Robert Plant, mid/late 80s (really boring!)

10CC, mid 80s

U2, War Tour 

The Clash (without Mick Jones) late 80s?

Squeeze (farewell tour mid 80s)

Squeeze (just before covid)

Stranglers (3 or 4 years ago)

Kinks (best live band ever!) x 3, early – late 80s

Rush, mid/late 80s

Genesis, Mama Tour

Dolly Parton, 4 or 5 years ago

John Prine x 2, 4 or 5 years ago

The Seekers, their farewell tour a few years ago

The Proclaimers, pre covid

The Pogues (supporting Elvis Costello)

Gary Glitter (early/mid 80s, pre convictions)

Suzi Quatro (4 or 5 years ago)

Paul Heating & Jacqui Abbott x 2, last 5 or 6 years 

Foster and Allen, early 80s

Bowie, Serious Moonlight tour, early 80s

Chris Rea, mid 80s

Bruce Springsteen x2, Born in USA Tour and Tunnel Of Love Tour, 80s

Tom Petty and Roger McQuinn, touring with Dylan mid 80s

 

I’m sure there are more but that’s my list off the top of my head! Best live bands were The Kinks, Squeeze in 80s and Elvis Costello.

Most disappointing were Rush and Robert Plant

Just saw Dylan for the first time. Second show of the Rough and Rowdy Ways tour, man he sounds great and his sense of humor is still sharp as ever. Gave a new breath to the new songs that I’m still getting to know, and did some fantastic renditions of a few classics from Blonde On Blonde, Nashville Skyline, Shot of Love, etc. Awesome show.

Very cool!

I’ve never actually attended a Dylan show, but I did listen and linger awhile outside the fencing surrounding his concert at Toronto’s CNE stadium on August 29, 1988; I also caught a glimpse of him through his tour bus window after the show.

Paul: Yeah well… first of all, we’re bringing out a ‘Stamp Out Detroit’ campaign.
