    AC/DC's Stiff Upper Lip Tour, 2000. It was basically the same set as here:

    Duran Duran were a great band during the early 80's.

    When did you see them, Elizabeth?

    I think it was 1984. I saw them at Madison Square Garden in NYC. I was 14 and went by myself. Took the subway.



    I also saw Linda Ronstadt, Joan Jett, Metallica, Iron Maiden, Candlemass, Fleetwood Mac, Cheap Trick, Def Leppard, and Keane.


    Edit: I just googled it and their shows at MSG were in March 1984. I was 13, almost 14.

    I looked at the set list, so that must've been an amazing show! Duran Duran were at their peak of popularity then. I never did manage to see Duran Duran in concert, though.
    'Well, what are you?" said the Pigeon. "I can see you're trying to invent something!" "I-I'm a little girl," said Alice, rather doubtfully. She found herself at last in a beautiful garden, among the bright flower-beds and the cool fountains.

    That's a great line-up!

    You were lucky to have been able to see them, Elizabeth. Led Zeppelin came to London in 1975 when I was 17 but my overprotective Mum didn't want me to go. I eventually gave way and still regret this. In the end I caught them at Knebworth (1979) but that show wasn't half as good as their iconic Earl's Court performances.

    My wife went to see the Beatles in 196(?)

    She can't remember the exact date but it will be on the ticket stub that she kept. This is probably worth a fortune now and I'll post a photo sometime (..it's up in the attic in her 'Beatles Scrapbook' at the moment).

    I'll bet she was one of those screaming girls who made them eventually stop doing live concerts because they couldn't hear themselves playing

    Hm, thinking about it, I must admit that I've been pretty lazy with single-band concerts, but I used to spend my annual holydays on festivals. That's 3 or 4 days of festival and a week to recover from it lol

    Among the best experiences certainly was Wave-Gothic Meeting, Leipzig in 1999, the hay-days of Gothic. WGT is a unique experience with various locations spread across Leipzig including open-air spots at Völkerschlachtdenkmal f.e., often shows without electricity, just pure analog instruments.

    EuroRock in Neerpelt, Netherlands, originally started as a Gothic festival as well, but soon came to include also Metal on sundays. My first shows with Dimmu Borgir and Behemoth were there. Also Dive, one of the oldest EBM "bands", a fascinating show when one guy alone fills the stage. Have been there every year until they moved to the city hall instead of the open-air festival.

    Have been to a special show of Black Sabbath featuring Ozzy Osbourne about 12 years ago or so, expecting Ozzy to drop dead any moment, but his insanity got him well through the show.

    Although as a working slave for the mag I wrote for back then, I much enjoyed my visits to Party.San festival, also the luxury of not being crammed to the ordinary visitors' camping area (one doesnt get younger, right), a highlight however certainly was Shining in 2008 I think and a great show of Sólstafir.

    Since my sinews degenerate ever further, concerts have been become very rare. Last one was with Watain and Destroyer666 some years ago already.
    Ein Leben ist nichts, deine Sprosse sind alles
    Aller Sturm nimmt nichts, weil dein Wurzelgriff zu stark ist
    und endet meine Frist, weiss ich dass du noch da bist
    Gefürchtet von der Zeit, mein Baum, mein Stamm in Ewigkeit

    I sat through the Duran Duran concert. I was a fan but not a screaming fan. I was lucky to have an aisle seat so I could see the stage. It was like a spiritual experience. My first real big concert. (I had seen Linda Ronstadt at the No Nukes rally in Central Park in 1982 with my mom, and Joan Jett in 1983, in New Jersey, with my mom and her then boyfriend).

    My worst concert experiences were being thrown up on at a Metallica concert by some guy sitting/standing behind me, and having a seat behind a pole at another concert where I couldn't see the stage. I saw them 3 times. The last time I saw them was the best because I was so close to the stage and James Hetfield was looking at me, but I had popped out of my new demi bra (not out of my blouse) and didn't notice until I got home. I never wore that again.

    Iron Maiden concert was great except that everyone stood up. I stood on my chair to see and then the people in front of me also stood up on their chairs. I'm short and couldn't see the band.

    I loved Keane, was a huge Keane fan, and flew from Florida to my native NYC to see them at the Radio City Music Hall in 2005. I didn't sleep the night before and so when I got to my hotel I fell asleep. I woke up and frantically rushed to RCMH and it was intermission, the opening band had finished playing, so I was happy that I didn't miss Keane, but everyone stood up and I couldn't see the band from where I was sitting, and I couldn't hear the music either. My ears had popped from the plane ride. My hearing didn't go back to normal until after my plane ride home.

    A hugely entertaining post, Elizabeth ... the best I've read in a while!

    I didn't even know what a demi bra was so I've just looked them up and it took me well over an hour to complete my research

    Ears are strange things and I've had similar experiences with planes. I'm sure they've also suffered from the high-decibel concerts I used to go to, although the audiologist says my hearing is still in the 'normal' range. I'd definitely wear ear plugs though if I went to see any bands now!
