Don't remember all of them, but here are the ones that immediately come to mind:

Bruce Springsteen / Seeger Sessions Band - Fucking amazing, I was in the third row (have been closer in the past but this was cool, too), and I'm sorry more people weren't willing to go with him on this. 10/10 and then some.

Fiona Apple - She blew me away, period. That girl can sing. I felt emotionally exhausted after that show. 10/10

Tom Petty - Not as good live as I'd hoped. Some assholes who were next to us on the lawn added to my non-enjoyment of the show, but overall he was pretty dissapointing. Major highlight for me was when Stevie Nicks came out and joined him for Stop Draggin My Heart Around. That was a moment. 6.5/10

Snow Patrol - Had an awesome time at this one. Love these guys and it was worth the wait after having the original date postponed due to Gary's throat. Sounded amazing and I'm going to see them again in April. 10/10

Bob Dylan w/ Foo Fighters opening accoustic - Foos were great, just about on par with Dylan himself. When he came out I literally felt chills collectively ripple throughout the arena. I love what he does to his songs live, and next time he plays a small theatre or a baseball field I'm so there. 10/10

The Strokes - 8/10 - Great performances although i would have preferred to be a bit closer to the front. Having said that though, the Manchester Apollo is the best venue i've been to. It's got a quite retro feel to it with the decor and the standing area is on a slightly downward slope so everyone can see the stage.

Graham Coxon - 9/10 - really surprised how much i enjoyed this gig. I was pretty close to the front, he talked to the crowd and did 2 encores. Some of the songs i didn't know but over all a great gig.

Take That - 10/10 - Best gig i've ever been to. Really. 3 rows from the front. They did all their greatest hits included a Beatles medely. Lots of money had been spent on the show as it was very well rehearsed and the lighting was great. Never Forget was the last song

Albert Hammond Jr - 7/10 - I was at the back and didn't know most of the songs as his album wasn't out at the time but the songs were good and i may well get the album.

I am very jealous.

I was in Spain when the Take That tickets came out/concert was played here

What was it like being so close to them all (especially Mark)?

I didn't go any concerts in 2006. I usually go to a few gigs every year. I had tickets to see RHCP in Barcelona but couldn't go and then Nerina Pallot was rescheduled until Febuary.

Was awesome, my mate got a pat on the back from Gary Barlow and wouldn't shut up about it on the way home. The performance of Could It Be Magic had them dancing while water was being poured on them from above and 'cos we were so close they started kicking the water out over the people at he front. Howard nailed me with some of it so i gave him a couple of V signs but i don't think he noticed. I'm gonna get him back one of these days...

I went to my first two concerts ever this year, and the first was definately better.

AFI-was expecting them to play longer and the opening acts were ok, but it was amazing for a first concert! My chest hurt for about a week from all the screaming I did 9/10

Thrice-in the front row and center, I got all kinds of molested for a band I'm not crazy about. Didnt know most of the songs and couldn't breathe. Opening acts were awful too 4.5/10

Roger Waters, September 18: 9/10. The fact that I felt like hell somewhat detracted from this show.

The Who, September 29: 10/10. The energy level out of Pete was unbelievable, and Roger sounded great. I have never a seen a crowd reaction as strong as I did for Baba O'Riley. The entire place just went wild.

I couldn't agree more. 10/10 for me, too.

and 10/10 for me as well.


Stars - I'm so glad I was able to check them out at the beginning of 2006 before their last tour ended. Small club, great atmosphere, great band. 10/10

I can't even remember if I saw anything else this past year, but those three shows stand out.

6/19: Radiohead-8/10

My first time ever seeing the band was a great show, but the setlist wasn't one that I liked an they played one of the few songs I actually don't like (bones). the band still put on a damn good show

6/20: Radiohead-9.8/10

5th row seats, the premier of "All I Need," coupled with a solid setlist and another great performance by the band made it my favorite show of the year

7/5: Wilco-7/10

This was a festival show, so that limited the band to a shorter show and I couldn't even see the band myself because of my seats; but the band played well and played almost every song I wanted to hear in their short set (good because it was my first time hearing them)

9/26: The Who-8/10

I had low expectations for this show, but I was pleasantly surprised with how it went. I liked the new songs and they played great versions of old classics (even if thats not what I wanted to hear). Roger Daultry lost his voice the last third of the show so that brought it down a little bit for me, but overall very solid.

10/27: Bob Dylan-9.5/10

I had roughly 8th row seats, his voice was the best I'd ever heard it in 3 shows and it was far and away the best setlist he had played. One of the best concert experiences of my life, too bad he played a terrible version of all along the watchtower to close the show, an the length of the show was about 30 minutes less than what I prefer (even if its standard for dylan)

11/24: Wilco-9.2/10

A great show, I had good seats and they played an extended set (25 songs). Played Sunken Treasure which was great, and I enjoyed much of the setlist. Main complaint is about the loud and obnoxious people in front of me and a lot of repeats from the last time I saw them

11/25: Wilco-8.5/10

A good show, but I set me expectations kind of high for their last show of the year, and they just played a pretty normal show. A debut of a new song was cool, and most of the performances were good. I still think they play too many of the same songs every night, but I was still satisfied with the show
