the best single evening i ever had was david gray > suede > REM - can't remember what year, or what order they played, but i do remember it was the most "sheer joy" sequence of bands i've seen there.

2003 - I think it was Suede, then David Gray then REM, and agreed, it was magical.

(That said, Suede were awful that day I thought!). But it was a perfect evening. Got too drunk for REM.

I saw them in the Manchester Apollo in 2003 I think, just after Hail To The Thief came out, they didn’t have a support and played for about 3 hours. It’s still to this day my favourite gig ever. 

Radiohead at Old Trafford cricket ground in 2008 remains my favourite gig of all time. Worth missing Glasto for that year.

I was at that as well, me and my mate both nearly got kicked out for throwing ale over each other after I got pissed off after he accidentally covered my white T-shirt with mustard off a hot dog he’d just bought. This was all due to us both being really drunk after a mate of ours was working on the bar and kept giving us free booze.

That would have been a great time to watch them. My favourite record of theirs is In Rainbows though. 

Don’t really know if I’ve got a favourite record, most of them all stand up really well on their own. Here’s another story for you. Saw them a day before my 18th birthday in Amsterdam in 2006. They were booked to play 2 dates, we saw them of the first of the two. For some unbeknown reason they sent me in the post tickets for both days, so I kept hold of it and thought I’d try and sell it to a tout outside the venue. Got to the venue and sold it to a tout after a bit of a discussion, I think for the price of the ticket (about €35). Anyway that night Phil Selway’s mum died and they cancelled the following night’s show, so the tout ended up €35 euro’s out of pocket because he obviously couldn’t sell it on ??

Oh, I like this. From 2007 I actually have notes and lists. Before that I am going for ‘most memorable’ rather than best. Leafing through the programmes, many of my favourites played (Primal Scream, Van Morrison, Nick Cave, Sharon Shannon) and I must have seen them, but it is all a bit of a Blur - who I am sure I saw as well, however it was a Blur headline set at Roskilde that really stands out in my memory instead.
