Too many to choose from for best- though Dream Theater at Wembley Arena would be right up there - also Rush back in the 90s

Worst was certainly Thin Lizzy just before they folded. Not only was big Phil in a bad way but the rest of the band must've been stoned out of their boxes too. A massive disappointment as it was one band I had waited years to see and they were a shadow of their former self. Leeds Queens Hall, must've been around '82

Too many to list but absolutely loved seeing Aerosmith, Bon Jovi, Iron Maiden et al however my personal favorite was a set played in Ibiza by Tiesto. It was insane!!

Worst was by far was Meat Loaf where he cancelled it whilst singing Paradise by The Dashboard Light, great show up until that point.

Asdral, Lamb Of God are awesome! thumbsup

Best gig I've been too has to be Enter Shikari at the Aberdeen Music Hall. 100% the entire and to say I was knackered at the end would be a crazy understatement. Worst has to be Oasis cause I was forced to be there, Liam & Noel :spit:

Best - Enter Shikari in 2006 back when they were relatively unknown, at a local venue they sold way too many tickets and the place was heaving only supposed to hold about 1000 people must have been at least 1500 people!

Worst - Razorlight at Leeds Fest 07, they headlined immediately after Kings of Leon (who were absolutely amazing) and everyone booed them throughout pretty much the whole hour and a half set

Best: Chili Peppers at V Festival when we got front row, few feet away from the legend that is Dave Frusciante.
Foo Fighters at Leeds festival when they refused to stop playing and the organisers ended up turning off the electrics and dragging them off.
Damian Rice at the Apollo in Manchester on Valentines Day, perfect for wooing the Mrs.
Kings of Leon at MEN arena earlier this year, got to meet the support band the Whigs afterwards.
The Pixies, finally got to see one of my fave bands when they made a return a few years back
Muse, put on such a show.

Worst: Chili Peppers at MEN arena, everyone booed the support act which narked off the Chilis who then really werent up for the show.

I can't think of a "worst" at present but there have been several contenders for the best. Probably the one that springs to mind in recent times was Seth Lakeman at Buxton - brilliant live!
