I am a big music fan and always have been. There is a recording of me singing ABBA when I was only 3 years old.
Over the years I’ve had the chance to go to some great concerts and see some great bands. Here is a list of the ones I can remember (dates might not be exact…) :
Crowded House / Split Enz - The Spit, Gold Coast, Australia 1990
Hunters & Collectors - The Spit, Gold Coast, Australia 1990
Midnight Oil – The Spit, Gold Coast, Australia 1991
Nirvana – Fisherman’s Wharf, Gold Coast, Australia 1991
Hoodoo Gurus – Fisherman’s Wharf, Gold Coast, Australia 1991
Hoodoo Gurus – Fisherman’s Wharf, Gold Coast, Australia 1992
Tripping Daisy – (Local Dallas band) Dallas, USA 1993
Silverchair – Dallas, USA 1996
You Am I – London 1997
Silverchair – London 1997
Chemical Brothers – Big Day Out, Sydney Australia 2000
Magic Dirt & Jebediah - Sydney Australia 2001
Sonicanimation - Homebake, Sydney Australia 2001
Chemical Brothers – Hordern Pavillion, Sydney Australia 2002
Powderfinger – Hordern Pavillion, Sydney Australia 2002
iOTA – 10 times, best was at the Sydney Opera House, Sydney Australia 2002
The Rolling Stones – Enmore Theatre (only 2,200 people!) Sydney, 2002
Tim Rogers - Sydney Opera House, Sydney Australia 2003
U2 – QEII Stadium, Brisbane, Australia 2006
Out of all of those, the 3 best would be :
1. Chemical Brothers @ Big Day Out – just AWESOME! AWESOME! AWESOME! One of the highlights of my life!
2. Rolling Stones – at the Enmore Theatre that seats only 2,200 people. The ticket agency received 550,000 phone calls trying to buy tickets! And I was one of the lucky ones.
3. U2 – I have been a massive fan since 1989 and never got the chance to see them until last year.
What are some of your highlights?
