    Default The Best Live Band

    I was at Oasis in Belfast about a month ago and they were pretty good but Metallica in Marley during the Summer was the best so far..I would imagine Slipknot would be good and as I am a fan I would like to see them but they are not coming to Ireland on their tour so I might head over to Reading....SO which band is the best live?????The Prodigy maybe

    Personally, I have grown to dislike the really big arena type concerts, theres nothing worse than paying your cash and having to watch it on a giant TV!
    Even Radiohead at Malahide castle suffered from that (Top band though)

    Now I prefer places like Vicar Street - only couple of hundred people and then you get the atmosphere

    Best recent gig was the backroom at The Lantern, Navan
    Kila (amazing live), The Coronas, and my fave irish band - The Flaws

    The Boss was also pretty special when he played the Point, on his seegar sessions tour
    So good, they released it on DVD and you can see me doing a guitar solo with him!

    Other than that, Madness in Belfast are always good at xmas

    Now i have been to many a concert from every genre of music, i would never listen to the radio or music in general but I love going to concerts, now i wasn't going to post a reply but I'm man enough to face the backlash but the best concert I have ever been to (easily 50+) was The Spice Girls in Manchester, not for there looks nor those of the fans but for sheer entertainment value, great concert!!

    (and before you say it, i didn't pay for anything, flights, 5 star hotel, VIP passes, my own suite at the concert so you can't slag me for buying the tickets nor for accepting them)

    I was at Meatloaf nearly 10 years ago and he sounded as good live. The last time Guns n Roses were at the RDS, I enjoyed that too back in 2006. They would be my favourite 2 concerts.

    Thats a joke right???????

    Mine would be Dire Straights........saw them lots of times.......another great gig that i went to was Bruce Springsteen.......amazing........the sheer energy of the man and the talent too..... Been to so many concerts as i worked for CBS so there really are hundreds that i could say - Abba in their day was a great gig cos they were on our label too - Epic records.

    You have U2 How come they are the biggest band in the world - or don't you like them.

    I really really wish it was a joke

    Saw U2 lots of times, dire staights, bruce, Wacko Jacko, Queen, Phil Collins, The Eagles but music aside I stand by my comments, for entertainment value or the drugs they were pumping thru the ventilation it was a brilliant concert
