“The best gigs EVER”

published 26/09/2001

ProThe atmosphere at a live gig is unique

ContraCan get stuffy and claustrophobic at times

I have been to many, many gigs in my time ranging from Queen to Alvin Stardust and Bowie to Glen Campbell, I even saw the Carpenters, so it was quite a struggle to keep this opinion short enough to actually submit. I have chosen these particular ones for all sorts of reasons and I have tried to...

“You can't beat a live vibe”

published 27/09/2001

ProGreat atmosphere, see your idols

ContraCan be expensive, may get a bum view!

Ah! Gig-going! Saw this category and thought “umm well, where do I start?” I could give a run down of past gigs I have been to (too many!), I could give a little of my gig-going history as others have done or stick to the “Member Advice” side and give tips and advice on the subject. So what shall...

ProSeeing so many of my heroes live :)

ContraThe cost

The year 2000, in my life marked the greatest line-up of gigs to hit these shores in a long time. In the space of a year I watched in awe a selection of my favourite bands ever, perform across the British Isles. As ever I have trouble deciding on bands, gigs and albums in order of preference...

ProYou'll have an amazing time

ContraPossibly cost

So, gig going eh? Personally I have been to a few in my time, and now consider myself to be one of the regulars. Rock gigs are where you'll find me though, so hopefully I can give you first timers a few tips :) I always buy my tickets on the Internet, using ticket providers such as ticket master...

Prosee op

Contrasee op

I have been to several concerts over the years. First of all, I was dragged by my parents to see a load of acts from the sixties. In the 1980s, I got my own back a bit, by dragging them along to see Five Star, The Housemartins and Wet Wet Wet in Nottingham. I went to Madonna's concert in Roundhay...

Going to gigs is what I do. I used to travel up to London with my friends after school and then run for the last train home (we never missed it, even managing to fit in a few after-show parties as well!) but then when I moved to London for university I started going to gigs on my own. When I tell...

Pronothing beats the thrill of seeing a band live

Contrayou ALWAYS end up behind the tall person!

Ok, so I've been to the odd gig I'd rather forget (*coughwestlifecough*) but in the past few years I've been lucky enough to go to some unforgettable gigs and see some amazing live performances (and some less than amazing ones, too). And I've learned a bit along the way which I think I should...

“Have a folking good time”

Promore intimate than mainstream gigs

Contraharder to find.

The world of the big gig, the stadium event, the hugely expensive ticket and the long drive have a certian appeal - I know, I've been to a few. There's ntohing quite like seeing a professional musician perfform live. However, the money making machine and the bland clone bands have largely put me...

Gig going Tickets I've put this section first for a good reason. When you and your mates read in the paper or in a music magazine about a gig happening near you, everyone says "Oh yeah. We've gotta go to that". Lo and behold 24 hrs before the gig everyone forgot to get tickets! Fair enough you...

Wolf in Sheep's Clothing Goldie "YOU only have to listen to his breakbeats. Sometimes the break covers the entire frequency of a track, from the deepest bass to the highest treble. And the break moves and lives, expands, contracts, explodes, somersaults. It seems to talk to you and travel across...
