    Far too many to be bothered to type but one of the performances that impressed me the most was when i saw Amy Winehouse in Feb last year at the guildhall oin southampton.

    That doris has got the ******* best voice live i've ever heard.

    Killers give a pretty good show live as well.

    I guess you were born in the 60's like me, then AndyMac........??

    I was never into live performances, don't really know why because I loved the music at the time. The first band I saw was New Order when I was about 40! Then Busted, (took daughter) then Bon Jovi and Rod Stewart (both at richo arena), that's it.......

    Seen them last year in Bangor which is the bands home town and where I live. So it was a homecoming gig for them on the local council playing fields. The concert was absolutely awesome because of the atmosphere around the whole town. 33,000 people were in the venue and probably the same again in the park beside the venue, plus The people having drinks and barbeques in the gardens of neighbouring houses.

    Search Youtube for "Snowpatrol, Ward Park". :rock:

    Definately NOT, why would they? Playing other peoples music live doesn't make it live music.

    Depends how its mixed IMO, sure theres people that just beat mix 4/4 track records but at the same time theres DJ's who have sublime mixing/sampling skills and song selection...
