4) Skid Row Eastern Creek Raceway (supporting Gunners)
Was that the 2007 tour? we saw that tour in Christchurch supporting Gunners (well Axl & Friends) and Skid Row should have been the headliners, they absolutely wiped the floor with gunners. Admittedly it was the last show of the world tour but Gunners were super disappointing that night. Sebastian Bach is an absolute beast though

I believe it was the 1991/92 tour. But yeah, Bas and Skid Row did wipe the floor ... with everyone. Still remember Bas coming out and asking "is this a F***ing party or what? Where's the F'n beer?"

Crowd was huge. Sound like many concerts at huge sporting arenas could have been better, however just happy I got to see him. I am still dirty that I missed Nirvana. Had the chance to see them at DeeWhy hotel in Sydney and I was crook so didn't go :(.

On a brighter note, forgot to add Green Day at SCG and Wave Aid also at SCG they were awsome gigs too.

Going to see one of my fav live guys soon at the end of Oct (Claude Hay) but I'm keeping my eye open for the next Post Malone tour - until this youtube vid I found.....it's either how I know I'm old OR a sign of how things have changed for the worse. Watch closely how 1) the heads all start to pop up like ducks sticking their head up to get shot off by hunters. As peeps get put up on shoulders of other poor souls who miss out cause they have to do the hard labour lol 2) the phones come out to film/selfies/share on social media and miss the moment and 3) everyone sings so loud so they can be heard you cant't even hear the guy you came to see.

I'm different, yeah I'm different.

Thought I had posted before but some of the highlights.....

1. Pearl Jam - Seen them 3 times.......the last show of the 3 was the best. Simulcast on Triple M which meant they played all of the big hits on the one night!
2. AC/DC supported by The Living End at the Entertainment Centre - loved the concert and the only concert where I think I suffered permanent hearing loss. Billy Connolly was about 6 seats away and was awesome with the crowd!
3. U2 at ANZ stadium and the Opening Act was............. Kanye West!
4. So many Homebakes over the years - The Finn Brothers, Jet, Silverchair, Powderfinger etc.
5. Live - supported by Sugar Ray!
6. Wave Aid (the Oils, Nick Cave, John Butler, Finn Brothers etc)
7. Livid in 2002 had a pretty good line up - Powderfinger, Oasis (nearly got killed in the Moshpit), Grinspoon, Something for Kate, Motor Ace, Superheist, The Butterfly Effect, Morrissey, John Butler Trio, The D4, Unwritten Law, Sum 41, Bodyjar, Dropkick Murphys.
8. Coldplay way back just after they released their second album. Didn't realise till later on that we stood next to Ewan McGregor most of the night as he was in town filming star wars.
9. Neil Finn/Paul Kelly/Mark Seymour in 2000 at the Domain during the Olympics! The crowd was in such fine voice and there were a heap of athletes mingling throughout the crowd! Lots of fun!
10. Ryan Adams - 2 hours of some amazing songs, unreal set list and even a verbal argument with people in the crowd. It had it all!

Honorable Mention - The Wiggles! The Moshpit was even crazier than Oasis.

Have not seen that many live performances, always preferred sitting at home with headphones, listening in crystal clear sound.
That being said, I have seen ...

Iron Maiden
Pink Floyd
Neil Young
The Wailers (Unfortunately minus Bob)

Pink Floyd was an utterly stunning experience.
