Ironically enough - Michael Jackson, Kooyong Stadium, Melbourne November 1997.

Great show, excellent singer, glad he's been found not guilty and I hope he DOES sign that Vegas contract as I'll be flying over to have a look real soon! Go Michael!

We feel like its time to talk about the human body again, so you can expect titles similar to "Take on me" and "Touch me".

Right now some working titles are

Closer please - A very modern track that sounds like Nik Kershaw.
Put your hand on my thigh - Naturally this will be a tear jerker.
My hands are made for you - Another tear jerker.
Embrace me - Up-tempo song with lots of drums.
Lets only book seat on the plane baby - My favorite

I read your post this morning and I'm still laughing. Best post ever

If "Put your hand on my thigh" is not a chart topping single, then I don't know what is!

This is a little embarassing but since I was a kid with my parents I have an excuse right. It was a week in Lake Tahoe not much else to do so we saw
The Pointer Sisters
Andy Williams and the Smothers Brothers
Johnny Cash
Can't remember the order

For real concerts it would be Billy Joel with my dad
or Oingo Boingo
First moshpit Fishbone almost got killed
first surfing the moshpit No Doubt when they were playing small clubs and hanging out in the audience
Oh I miss those days

My very first concert was R.E.M. last October. The 23 I think It was. I saw them in Atlantic City. What an amazing show. Second best show I've seen. I've seen the Pixies, Elvis Costello, and U2 now since then, and have tickets for Coldplay in August and U2 again in October. R.E.M. will always be special though for being my first concert.

Few things rock as hard as hearing "Get Up" or "Maps and Legends" from 11 rows back.

Being a member of the 'Over 40 Club' does have its advantages.
