Alice Cooper in 1977 at the Perth Entertainment Centre when he reprised Welcome to my Nightmare was brilliant. Seen lots of Bowie and Iggy Pop/Stooges concerts all fantastic as well. Springsteen in 1985 and Neil Young at the same time were equally brilliant. Phil Collins was also touring at the same time but I didn't see his concert.

I also saw Blondie and Elvis Costello both at the Perth Concert Hall in 1979 a few weeks apart. Both were great gigs.

One final comment, The Clash only toured Australia once and this was the Far East Tour in 1982. I saw them at the Capital Theatre in Sydney 3 times. They supported some local Indigenous activists (Gary Foley - can't remember the others) to assist them in getting their message across. This struggle continues.

The E-Street Sirius show? Wowwwwwwwwwww.

Highlights?
Full E-Street band at the Moodie Theatre in Austin, Texas it was part of SXSW. Amazing venue, great sound and sight lines for the whole audience.

Highlights were Bruce and the E-Street band as performers, over a three hour show they just ripped it.

Special guests Tom Morello, Jimmy Cliff, Eric Burden and more all added to the experience and the ultimate highlight was an all star jam and crowd singalong finale of Woody Guthrie's "This Land is our Land" it was moving.

I'm so glad I got to see an American icon in the US, it's a different feel.

:thumbsu: Mr Yokal, you have a superb taste in music.


The Rollins Band at the palace in November 1995, nothing comes close.

Powder Monkeys played first, then Hank took the stage.

Pure, crushing, intensity.

The paint was peeling off the walls.

Rollins even makes reference to this gig himself, and I consider it a privilege to have been there.

I have a videotape of Rollins in 88 at the Eureka Hotel in Geelong.

Only copy in existence of that gig.

PM if you want a copy.;)[/QUOTE

Pearl Jam in the Netherlands, 2007, with support from Kings of Leon. Gang of Youths in Fremantle in 2017.

Also, have always liked them without being a huge fan, but Prodigy put on an amazing set at a festival in 2010. Had 20,000 people moshing at one point.

Winnipeg Jets!
Tool-Lateralus tour was awesome...stands out for sound quality.
STP,Pearl Jam,Social D,Mudvayne,Alice in Chains,Chevelle,Metallica and even Cypress Hill were all good.

Most fun had at a concert was easily ACDC...sadly never to happen again.

******* stupid game
Probably The Wailers down at Selinas in Coogee, a few years after Bob Marley died. It was pretty much his entire band except Junior Marvin had moved out front on vocals. It was absolutely incredible, I wonder how much better Marley could have made it.

Honourable mentions:

The Angels on the Liveline tour at the Enmore.
The Angles, Rose Tattoo and the Screaming Jets at Selinas.
Motorhead at the Luna Park tent.
Jack White at the Hordern.
Transvision Vamp at Selinas.
AC/DC. Saw them three times at the Sydney Entertainment Centre, before they started doing stadium shows.
