Paid Members Hannibal Scorch Posted February 1 Paid Members Share Posted February 1 (edited) Inspired by and with thanks to @Gus Mears excellent topic of First album/single, I thought this would be a a good idea for a topic. My first gig was REM Monster World Tour at the Milton Keynes bowl in 1995. They played 2 nights, both with some great support acts (Magnapop, Belly and Blur who were my favourite at that time) played the Saturday, but we could only get tickets to the Sunday. A Pre The It Girl Sleeper, Radiohead who were not yet too artsy (Creep was amazing live) and a band who seemed to be played on MTV Europe constantly at that time. All led up to the main event. REM were great. Really great. The played all their hits as long as a lot of their newest release Monster. I later found out Radio 1 broadcast REM live that night and I do have a CD bootleg copy of the gig, and a promo flyer of the poster. Amazing first gig really. Whilst N*E*R*D at Hammersmith Apollo in 2004 is one of my favourite gigs, and important as it’s where I met future Mrs Scortch, I’d think we’d both agree that seeing Prince at the o2 14th August 2007 during the 3121 residency was the best. An incredible live act who i wish I’d been able to see more then once. Worst gig was Kanye West’s Glow in the Dark Tour at the o2 November 11th 2008. Awful storyline about him being stranded on a planet thanks to crashing his spaceship, didn’t seem to want to be there, and he restarted his encore about 5 times because his vocoder wasn’t working. Was getting booed at the end. Just a miserable experience. What are yours? Edited February 1 by Hannibal Scorch Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
