I forgot about Paul McCartney's "symphony" at Carnegie Hall. Don't remember what year it was but it was shortly before Linda MCCartney diedPure torture. My arse was numb - it went on for three hours!! Pretentious computer generated shite! I was so mad we sat through it.

Cat Stevens a few years ago on his first ever visit to Ireland. He sang on stage for a short while then left. Then we had a preview/promotion thing of a west end show in which he was not on stage! People were booing and shouting for him to come back on. Everybody had paid alot of money to see him. He did come back on eventually and kind of apologised and realised he got the format wrong.

Oh and that dire Guns n Roses concert at the O2 that DH dragged me to at 9 month pregnant (seated obviously!) Axl Rose didn't appear for 1.5 hours, by which time the whole place was changing and slow hand-clapping. The mood got very ugly and when he finally came on stage, he was booed and water bottles flung on stage. He sang a couple of songs and flounced. Cue lots of angry booing. We skedaddled before anything kicked off. Apparently he came back on stage at 1am purely to fulfil his contract and avoid the need for mass refunds. Spoiled brat.


PMSL I was there too! It was so bad it was good nearly, I found the whole thing entertaining. The worst bit was that everyone really wanted him to just get on the stage and sing and he was such a eegit. That said, it was pretty true to form of every Guns n Roses concert.

I also saw Shitney in the O2(got a free ticket), man she was bad.

Music : It was Bob Dylan in the O2, DH told me it would be crap and it was. He just sat there and kind of muttered for a while, then we left.

Comedy it was Jimmy Carr, I think it was in Vicar Street but could be wrong. He just wasn't funny, in fact a lot of the audience left during his act as he seemed to have completely misjudged what would make the Irish etc laugh. It was so disappointing.

Yeah - that was pretty bad.

I also thought Neil Young at the RDS this year was pretty bad - I don't really need to listen to 20 minutes of pointless noodling and feedback. I'm not a fan (DH is), but I thought he was much better a couple years back at the O2.

Boring, boring, boring. They barely said hello or anything else to the audience and they could have been playing on the moon for all we knew.
No charisma or presence.
Dreadful.



Same-it was awful. No atmosphere and loads of self-obsessed guitar solos etc. And I was 34/35 weeks pregnant so really needed some entertaining!


We actually left and went to the bar... It improved significantly after a few pints... They Played "new stuff".. Why?people were thereto hear their old stuff..

Comedy, was eddie Izard in the point November 2003.. Just.not.funny.

Radiohead in Punchestown. I think it was their third gig that I'd attended but the first, and last, since they'd gone totally weird. It was bad.

The Pixies in Lansdowne Road. I love the Pixies but the sound was really, really bad and the bad had aged so much. Kim Deal looked like my mammy in a christmas jumper. I still love them but if I saw them again I'd do what I did at Violent Femmes and just not look at them.

I'd really like to know where is everyone getting all those free tickets?


Before I had kids I used go to watch a lot of new bands live. Quite a few of these bands wouldn't be great at all.

The worst concert I was at was Rory Gallagher. He was completely out of it. It was disturbing to witness and also incredibly sad because he died shortly afterwards.

I don't really like concerts where bands are going through the motions of rolling out the old hits year after year, decade after decade. Mind-numbing and depressing. I think the Stones were caricatures of themselves and became really just a bad tribute band.

I enjoy most gigs and would go to nearly anything for a night out. I don't really understand people complaining that stars don't do the old hits - I personally have more respect for artists who keep producing and performing new music. Worst I was ever at? In 92 I went to Chris de Burgh. I only went as a friend was stuck for someone to go with. I hated it but he put on a decent show I suppose. I found Damien Rice in Marlay Park dismal. He was so into himself and dull, I would sooner have gone to see Chris again, at least I would have had a laugh. So Damien was the worst.
