I loved the Stereophonics personally, and Garbage rocked as always.

I think he means Sinead O'Connor, right?

I am pretty sure it is Skunk Anansie. I am 99% sure that Sinead O'Connor has never played with U2 on the same bill. If I am wrong, I am sure I will find out soon enough

Peace.

I saw them in Baltimore too! In fairness, they were okay.

Hey, I didn't know Skunk Anansie opened for U2. I kinda like some of their songs.

Nelly Furtado...eew. Hate that b*tch.

Best = Moby. I was never majorly fond of his music til then, but his performance at Slane just blew me away! Whenever I'm talking about Slane I'm just as likely to talk about Moby as I am U2, purely because I was so surprised how great his performance was!

Worst = Nelly Futado. Can't stand her!

Damn! I wish I had been able to see The Pogues (and Pearl Jam too, for that matter!).

I'm surprised there hasn't been more love for Los Pixies. What an amazing band!!!

Just look at some of the ZooTV openers and realize how amazing they were:

Pixies
PJ Harvey
Big Audio Dynamite
Primus
Public Enemy (in their prime)
The Sugarcubes (Bjork!)
The Ramones
Stereo MCs
Velvet Underground(!)
Pearl Jam(!)
Bjork (solo)

Not bad!

I've only seen 2 opening acts - PJ Harvey and No Doubt. In terms of getting the crowd fired up, No Doubt played circles around PJ Harvey. I really wanted to like PJ Harvey, but I couldn't understand a word she sang, all the music was dark and moody (except for one song I really liked - Angeline was it?), and none of the band looked at all happy to be playing with the exception of the lead guitarist, who looked like he was having a bit of fun - the rest looked pretty blank for most of the set. Maybe I caught her on a bad night.

No Doubt on the other hand were tons of fun - you could tell they were having a blast up there...they were pumped up, Gwen knows how to feed off the audience and get them pumped up...hell, they were just a lot of fun!

I suppose PJ Harvey is good for what she is, she just isn't my thing.

PJ Harvey was amazing! This was the first time I ever went to a show early specifically to see the opening act.

Her own concerts are also great!

Garbage was awesome as well, No Doubt were OK, FLC on Pop Mart were ok.

The worst opening act was Primus at Yankee Stadium Zoo TV. Probably the worst band I have ever seen live. The stadium was shaking because the bass was too loud. HORRIBLE!

I liked 3EB, Sugarcubes, Garbage, FLC, and No Doubt. PJ Harvey was real but I could go the rest of my life without hearing her wailing. The Disposable Heroes of Hiphoprisy(sp?) were probably the worst openers IMO.
