      Went to the hollywood bowl twice in the last few weeks to see the Los Angeles Philharmonic perform Holst's "The Planets" and also for John Williams conducting a load of his film scores...Star Wars, Harry Potter, Indiana Jones and a ton of others... Both brilliant.
      Later this year I have Depeche Mode (hollywood bowl), Coldplay (rose bowl), elbow (wiltern), nick mulvey (troubadour) and perhaps Eric Clapton (forum)
      Phew!
      Might also fit in The War on Drugs (Greek Amphitheater) and Alison Moyet.
      Some great ones to look forward to.

      Was in a bar near Sutton last month mate watching a game with Bernie, all was going well the boys had scored, had a few pints when all these kids came in from the local college. Most of them couldn't drink with laws in the states so they did what kids do - make a f**king nuisance of themselves.
      Couldn't hear yourself think and there was f**king mayhem, soon as the game finished we were out of there, imagine the gig would be similar.

      Saw Coldplay last night in Miami. Say what you will about them, they put on an awesome show.

      Saw one of their gigs last year and they are very crowd pleasing. But I have to say I much preferred them when I saw them on the Viva La Vida tour 9 years ago. Aside from being a far better band back then they weren't so overbearing in their desire to please the audience whereas on their latest tour they assault you with hit after hit after hit accompanied by fireworks, flashing wristbands, confetti and flame throwers. Exhilarating at the time but exhausting overall. I always feel the best concerts are those in which you leave knowing a little bit more about the act you've just seen - the ability to surprise and give the audience something unexpected as opposed to just giving them what they want.

      That's a fine and diverse list of gigs there. Would love to see Holst's planets on the basis of Jupiter alone! I'm no classical buff but that gets the juices flowing!

      Saw Depeche Mode at the hollywood bowl last week.
      First half was a lot of the newer stuff which was ok. The second half was all mid 80’s to early 2000’s....and that was epic. Great to have finally seen them in concert. Even got to meet Martin Gore afterwards! Nice little fella with a ton of eye liner on!

      One of the best concerts I've been to,  unbelievable live band Kasabian.

      Saw The Floyd Effect last night on the Brindley in Runcorn, Jesus H Christ what an experience, close your eyes and you were there back in the day.

      Y&T in Belfast tonight and then Alice Cooper in Dublin tomorrow.  Not a big fan of Alice Cooper tbh but any excuse for a piss up in Dublin.  Y&T on the other hand, without a doubt one of the best live bands I've ever heard.  Cannot f**king wait!

      I don't disagree, but as the dad of a 14 and 12 year old that were also at the show...they had an absolute  blast and to me that was worth it. My oldest loves them and I can think of a lot worse music or bands he could be into at that age. So yea, maybe some of that stuff is a bit cheesy, but I have to admit, overall it was FUN and to me that's  what's missing from a lot of bands these days.

      Now, if you want to see someone that hits the nail on the head for your description above (a surprise and something unexpected), go to a Pearl Jam show. They will knock your socks off every time, guaranteed and they still don't bow down to anyone ;)

      Yeah I know exactly what you mean. And as you say if 12 and 14 year olds are loving it then that's all that's matters I suppose. For a lot of people that may also be their first live gig and what an impression it must make. They've been going for nearly two decades and to be fair, not many acts that are 2 decades old can appeal to younger audiences (especially 4 middle aged Englishmen) but Coldplay seem to have done that. That's their success in a nutshell - the ability to appeal to anyone of any age. Maybe not for me anymore but I still adore their A Rush of Blood To The Head and Viva La Vida albums like them. Will always have a soft spot for them on that basis.

      I've heard so many great things about Pearl Jam live yet never had the opportunity to see them live. And by the sounds of it, Eddie Vedder by himself would be worth the entrance fee alone! He's always seemed like such a charismatic, likeable personality. Thing is, I don't know where to start with them as I've never really given them the respect of sitting down for a good period and listening to their back catalogue properly (rather than just having them crop up on my ipod on shuffle!).

      You could always try on one of their official bootleg albums to get a feel for how the shows go.

      Should be a bunch of them on iTunes.

      But really, you can find snippets from just about  any show on Youtube. They really are prolific in their live output.

      I'd also recommend catching Ed in a solo environment as well. He shines just like Chris Cornell did. Really was hoping that one day, they'd end up getting together on tour, but alas it was never meant to be.

      Here's one of their more recent shows from just up the road in Tampa. Pretty good quality and good energy. Diverse setlist too.

      Those shows he puts on are something else. Love it when acts like him really push the boat out for what is technically possible within a stadium/arena environment. Awesome spectacles.

      I know mate, can't wait to the show.
      I saw him at Wembley arena in 88 on his Radio Kaos tour and it was brilliant so I'm really looking forward to watching and listening once again 30 years later ;)

      It was a birthday present from my kids, they tried to get the Echo Arena but it was sold out.
      What a show, the fx were literally out of this world. The power station thing was brilliant as you say.
      The remote pig was mad floating round the arena coupled with print out of the damage caused to society and the planet by the multi-powerful, obscenely wealthy and greedy pigs that rule the planet.
      'Trump Is A Pig' in huge letters put it all in perspective.
