I went to Acer Arena last year to watch Korn, supported by Hatebreed and Disturbed.. was awesome, only bad part was getting stared at by suicidal Gothic/Emo's as thoe i wasnt supposed to be there... Found a group of people dressed in regular attire and no make up, so they were my freinds for the evening... Lost my voice from all the yelling/singing, Mrs said she enjoyed the 5 days of peace and quiet that followed as a result..

 

She also then tried to convince me i should go and watch Boys to Men (Boys to Fags as i like to call them) to which i responded "LIKE F**k :no:

Linkin Park for me, the whole crowd and atmosphere of the night was insane

The streets at this years bdo were mad also, as were Muse and the Vines

For me it's a toss up between the Opeth concert at Big Top luna park 2006 and Tool when they were doing the Lateralus tour 2001 - I couldn't fault either bands, I've seen them both a couple of times now but those two shows in particular were brilliant.

It was only a gig, but "rock the vote" at the Govenor Hindmarsh when the Funkoars and Terrafirma were on. It was so awesome!! Got to meet every member of the groups and even the Hilltop Hoods and Flak made an appearance :D

best gig ever is yet to come. Daft punk, december 20th, brisbane! wooooo.

 

 

other than that probably pendulum. Wasn't a massive crowd but if you can find an act with more energy without being on drugs then i'll give u a shiny dollar.

Bit of Old school, Sebastian Bach & Guns n' Roses was by far the best concert i've been to so far, they put on a really good show and involved the crowd well.

I went to the offspring way back in like '00-01. Was my first gig I'd ever been to. Was insane.

i have hardly been to many gigs at all, probaby 10 or so inc. silverchair (freakshow tour), koolism, felix da housecat, the cops, expatriate, and more i can't remember. but the best i've been to is the cat empire, which also had support from blue king brown and a US band called 'tourtured soul', sounds emo but they're like funky house/jazz type stuff, they were really good.
