(and in reply to the first post here, The Darkness were on with Robbie Williams at Knebworth, heard a bit of them on the way down- of course we weren't there on time!- and the reviews i heard were all pretty good too)
Problem is, Mr Pad and I have different musical tastes. So I can't expect him to surprise me with tickets to whichever concert I might like. Plus, I'm not really inspired by camping out and rolling around in mud. Ok, well - unless I join the TA. But that's different.
I'v been to quite a few concerts in my time, and one of the best, and only for the atmosphere, was a runrig concert in Bielefeld. The place was packed with every jock in germany and its was a great night.
I am a meatloaf fan, and went to see him live in Cardiff last year. Again, another great night. And the venue was only charging £1.80 a pint, which made the night even better!!
Neither am I, got myself a cheap motorhome and I use that for whenever I go to events, such as music, motorbikes (on/offroad), visiting friends who have no spare beds etc, its also very useful on the odd drinking session to avoid paying for taxis home etc, I just crash out in the van
8esar - Runrig, excellent live band, definately know how to get the crowd going (especially if you are a jock), but are probably more popular in Denmark and Germany than over here
