    I went to a Shanghai 5 thing.
    They're so awesome.

    ok, they were performing at the apple store and talking about HOW to make tracks, but it was the first thing I've been able to go to for a long time. I'm calling it a show. :p

    That must have been nice.

    Last night, I saw my school's orchestra play Lambro's Miraflores for String Orchestra, which was beautiful, Mozart's Flute Concerto No. 1 in G Major, with a faculty soloist. She was awesome, and so was the orchestra, and Shostakovich's Symphony No. 5 in D Minor, which was amazing.
    On Friday, I'm going to see Wynton Marsalis and the Linoln Center Jazz Orchestra playing Duke Ellington's Nutcracker Suite. I've heard good things about the piece, so I'm hoping that it will be ****ING AWESOME! :D

    Last one I went to was about... 6 years ago. I went my girlfriend at the time, and about 8 of her mates to see some Unicef concert in Manchester. Wheatus played, Idlewild? Catatonia was the only one worth remembering. we had our first kiss to "Dancing in the moonlight" by that big haired guy.
    Its sad really. we were going so great but we split up the day after. ho hum! :eek:

    concerts don't interest me. im picky with music. i'll love one track by an artist but hate the rest. unless you can go to see part of a concert these days?

    �in 2001 I saw up to 50 or more musical acts/concerts (basically any event w/live music). During the summer I saw Oasis perform at the Everett Events Center. Even more recent I went to http://www.theveraproject.org/ and saw among others The Fading Collection.

    OK I'm jealous...are you a member of the Cathedral?

    Since we're including church stuff, I saw the Lessons & Carols at theUniversity of the South last weekend. It's a yearly event performed by the University Choir, which is made up of undergraduates there.

    Just saw the Foo Fighters last night (in Melbourne). Top stuff. They really got into it and the crowd loved them back. Its a long tour for them and Australia is far away so they didnt dissapoint IMHO when they could have easily just gone with the motions...:p I think they really enjoy coming here.

    Green Day and U2 coming up. Pretty standard fare...but fun nonetheless.

    It's been a year since I saw Alter Bridge, Crossfade and Submersed at a small venue called Janus Landing in Southwest Florida. The bands hung out after the show - it was cool. My boys and I talked with Brian Marshall and his wife, and Mark Tremonti signed my teenager's shirt. Great show. It was like seeing a Creed reunion because Brian (ex Creed bass player) was back with Mark Tremonti and Scott Phillips - the new lead singer Myles Kennedy totally rocked.

    I forgot to mention that I saw Arturo Sandoval back in February. That was ****ing awesome. I've also seen my cousin's band a few times during the year, nothing notable except the last show, which was the final show of another local band, and a soon-to-be-national band was there. Of course, I left after the second band, because I was pissed off.

    Since I've move in with my girlfriend, I don't get to go to many gigs any more as she's not that into music :(

    The last one I went to was Happy Mondays playing on Clapham Common in London earlier this year. Tried to take loads of photos on my camera phone and ended up with about 15 very dark & fuzzy shots.
