Whats the best concert/gig you've ever been to? Why did you enjoy it so much? My favourite would be when i went to see "Spunge" in october 2004, because it was in a smaller room of rock music venue. The band was unsigned and the atmosphere the whole night was amazing. The band asked the crowd which song they wanted them to perform and got the crowd to join in to make it fun. Everyone seemed to have loads of fun too. I went with my husband, my best mate and her ex-boyfriend. ~joeys wife

In all honesty I've only been to TWO concerts in my life, well in actual fact ONE and a HALF, in 36 years! The first one I went to (promise you won't laugh?) It was Buck's Fizz! That was back in 1988. It was fantastic. The second one I went to see was quite recently in 2004 I was taken to see Cold Play at Crystal Palace, I hated it, I had never heard of them, it's true! I got badly burnt waiting for hours in the intense heat, I left half way through. I am off to see Abba in concert at The Royal Albert Hall in London in September. Ok, you can stop laughing now ;0)

Hi I would have to say the Nickelback concert. It was special since I took my teen with me. We both love the music and had a blast. I got him right up by the stage, as close as you can get to the band. It was his first concert and we will both rememer it fondly.

Nickelback Cool.. I used to like them they had the first album over here and I kinda tired of them. (just like the muse) Although it's great to hear! giz; I'm glad you'll remember it :) Some I'd rather forget about! lol

I love music and my taste in music is varied. I enjoy anything from gospel to new age, alternative, jazz, easy listening, old-school rock, top 40, and more. The only type of music I do not enjoy is country and blue grass. I have been to many live events and enjoyed most all of them. If forced to pick only one favorite I would have to say the Three Doors Down concert that I attended. The pyrotechnics were awesome and the music was tight! The crowd was rocking and the company (my wonderful hubby)was wonderful!

Omigod! come to think of it.I've never actually watched a big concert. Everytime there is a concert of my fave band coming, i planned to go but always do not go. First, I really do not like crowd..much more a big crowd is expected during concerts. Second, hmmm i do not like too loud sounds, noisy people.. anything that beyond 3 decibels. Third, i always associate rowdy crowds with trouble! So, I do not have any night life at all. The only time i get to see big concerts happened in our living room while watching it aired on TV.

Hi, Joey, I personally do not like concert/gig because concert / gig are beyond my knowledge of understanding them and hence neither I can appreciate them nor depreciate them. I love melodies Hindi songs. Of course, I had go on an official matter to an concert. I understood nothing. I was sitting for more than 1 hour as a dump.

My favorite concert ever-- Was Kenny Chesney- He was with Keith Urban and Deena Carter- I'm a huge Kenny fan- We had front row seats- Right up and close- I reached out and touched him- Man it was a rocking night! I was so hoarse by the time he finished up.

Oh I've seen many many many concerts. I've traveled across the country and to another country to see concerts. I don't know if I could ever pick just one that was my favorite. I followed a band on tour and that is just the most fun thing to do, especially when you're friends with the band. I just think going to concerts and being a part of the crowd and the fun and losing yourself in the music is one of the greatest things in life.

My favorite would have to be Mariah Carey in 2003. It was also in a small venue so it was very intimate. I love her she's an awesome singer! she can blow the top off of any roof!

I went to see Motley Crue while they were in Desoto county. They rocked the house even with Vince's leg hurt. He told us he would never cancel a concert. I loved it because of it being wild.

my favorite concert was probably x-fest 1999. It was the first x-fest I ever went to. Fuel, Cypress Hill were the headliners. Can't really remember anything else cause I was so drunk the whole time and it was like 8 years ago. I like concerts where there is more than one band there. Like at x fest there were 3 stages of bands playing so you got to hear a lot of different music. PLus a ton of hot guys.

Hi there, We have alot of Music Concerts here in NZ. I would have to say the best open air music concert I went too see, was "Metalica" way back in 2001, it was awsome and packed up with so many rowdy people, jumping, slamming and just going crazy LOL... When they came back again a couple of years later I refused to go LOL... The first one was it!!! Last me a life time...
