    I went to see Airbourne on Wednesday night at the 02 Academy Newcastle, absolutely epic. It's now Friday and ribs,shoulder,right knee and left calf still ache from the Mosh pit. If you know Airbourne you know every song Rocks.

    The atmosphere was electric, you know you in a room filled with like minded people when a large contingent of the crowd start singing along to "The Evil That Men Do" that was played as filler music while they setup and the support acts gear was removed.

    If you get the chance to see them, take it.

    Muse @ Wembley. Was great and the fact that Lily Allen did the pre-show made my wife happy too.

    Hmm, Ryan Adams, been to so many of his gigs but really haven't kept up with his output since Easy Tiger.

    Presume he has about ten new albums since then, any use?

    AMM as a trio (Keith Rowe on prepared guitar, Eddie Prevost on percussion and John Tilbury on piano), ten years ago, in a small jazz club in France, amazing stuff. Look them up. Close seconds: Evan Parker by himself with his luminous soprano saxophone in a modern arts museum, and Bach's Saint John's Passion on period instruments in a Gothic Abbey, Philippe Herreweghe conducting. Better than rock & roll, folks.

    Fun fact: Keith Rowe was a major influence on Syd Barrett in the early days (Interstellar Overdrive etc.).

    @mikew1985 to be honest he played a lot of older stuff, only one song off Gold as well! Brilliant gig though, back in April. He eclipsed The smashing pumpkins (Mellon collie tour) and that was fantastic.

    Oh, and I think it's closer to 20 :D he actually just sang an off the cuff song about a loaf of bread after someone shouted it randomly. The band was made up of the old school, and superb too. Some great sporadic moments.

    Rush at the (Dublin) O2, May 2011 - 3.5 hour set (including "Moving Pictures" played in its entirety), and a few songs from their (then) upcoming best album since the early 80s. That did quite nicely.

    Cynic at Vicar Street (Dublin), November 2008 - Never, ever thought I'd get to see them live, and on the eve of the launch of their second album too. Blew Opeth clean off stage that nite.

    Suffocation, Fibber Magee's (Dublin), April 2008 - One of the most legendary death metal bands on the planet, in a fucking pub in Dublin. Without doubt the most intense and visceral gig I've ever attended.

    Tori Amos - Vicar Street, May 2005 - Just her, straddling a chair with pianos either side. She apparently played a completely different set the night before. Had the place eating out of her hand, unreal stage presence.

    George Clinton and the P-Funk Allstars (Electric Picnic, Co. Laois), August 2008 - After a day and a half of solid partying, the Saturday headliner should have been greeted by people asleep on their feet. Instead, it kicked off thousands of people funking and grooving around a giant field well into the small hours.

    Pantera at Brixton. In the 90s, don't remember the year, just a haze, all I remember is weed, beer,and the metallic taste of blood and a huge fucking grin.

    Not trendy to admit as there a lot of people who think they can score music cred points by saying how rubbish they are.

    Coldplay at the emirates, one of the best things I have seen in truth, they were terrific.

    Prodigy at Big Love in 1993 is my favourite.

    The Stone Roses - Heaton Park.

    The gig of my lifetime. Won't get any better than that. The whole day with my friends from school just made it really something special as did the atmosphere. Every pub we went into were playing their music and it was even on the tram getting there.

    Honourable mentions

    Foo Fighters -Epic. They played for hours
    Roisin Murphy - Surreal

    A few others but too tired having just come back from White Lies. They were bloody good.

    Alice in Chains - Alexandra Palace last month
    Interpol - Astoria 2007
    Radiohead - O2 October 2012. Had tickets to see them in Berlin but was cancelled after the death in Canada, which is fair enough of course :(

    Oh and Foos at Reading 2012, was an unbelievably pleasant surprise.
