Seen so many acts in my time. From 15-22 I regularly took in between 15-20 gigs a year. This was in the day you could just wander up to a venue & as long as not sold out could pay £10 to get in.

Some of the "big acts" would include
Guns N' Roses twice
U2
REM
Oasis
Red Hot Chili Peppers five times
Rod Stewart twice
Billy Joel
Neil Diamond
The Stone Roses
The Who
The Killers 3 times
Foo Fighters
Iron Maiden
Kasabian

As a child I was taken to see Engleburt Humperdink and Max Bygraves by my mother!

I made up for it by seeing Motorhead at the Hammersmith Odeon but for some reason she didn't want to come with me. Dunno why I said I'd pay for the ticket.

Been subjected to Elton too, but i think going to see Pink half a dozen times with the wife may trump that
I was alive when Rangers died
