Just saw this.

My God you got to see the GOAT live.

Never paid for a concert ticket. What's a good price? Is it a set price or does it depend on the act?

Really tempted to go this summer.

How weird is it to go to one on your own?

Saw Elton John in 76 at Earls Court. My first and most memorable concert. His encore lasted 30 mins ...Saturday nights alright for fighting and pinball wizard. I was 15.

The Police reunion tour in 2007 was pretty special. Saw them at Wembley Arena.

Status Quo at the Hammersmith Odeon in 1984 was great. Went with a few mates and a female work colleague - who brought her boyfriend and his mates. They were Hells Angels! Interesting night afterwards.

I saw Madness in the Dublin Castle Camden Town in 1979. I was only 13 or 14. Wonderful memory.

dave hill from slade has just written a book about his time in the band
I heard him interviewed about it and he tells a story of dave Powell the drummer going backstage at queens Earl's Court gig in 1977 when they were on the day at the races tour( I believe this is the gig you mean)?
While he was there his car was broken into and the 8 track and 8 of the 10 tapes that were stolen
The 2 that were left were both slade albums
I saw Bowie at Earl's Court in 78
Sound was shocking
It had improved greatly by the time I saw the arctic monkeys there

Arctic monkeys at Earl’s Court was p good
Death grips at the roundhouse was a madness

Seeing the real MF DOOM live tops it all for me tbh, even if he weren’t the best performance-wise

Well, I’d love to tell you that I was a Fighter Pilot, but I was in the RAF Regiment, which is a unit that protects the air bases, so tend to shoot them down rather than fly them.

Interesting 7 years though including 3 tours in the Falklands.

Thanks for your service mate.

I knew a couple of fellas who served in the RAF Regiment. Would have been after you. Late 80s early 90s.

Thanks....it’s a very small unit so unusual for people to know anyone in it, let alone two.

Loved the story about Dave Hill btw Starman....very funny.

I love Wu-Tang Clan, but they are probably the worst to go see in concert and pretty much hiphop in general. It just isn't that good in concert, except for maybe The Roots, they play their own instruments so they're pretty good. But Wu-Tang was just 10 dudes yelling on stage all at the same time.
