Best Live Act in 2001

Former MemberFormer Member Posts: 1,876,324 The Mix Honorary Guru
Which live act or gig anywhere you have seen in the year 2001 is the most remarkable? To me, it is Muse playing at V2001! I was in the Chelmsford site, even though it was raining, the whole act was great, atmosphere was high. I haven't seen anything like that for long time.

    I to went to V2001 (Stafforshire site). Faithless really did it for me. On a drizzly summers afternoon boucing up and down to We Come One & Insomnia was so great. Also watching The Charlatans, finally with some sunshire, stoned was also a great highlight.

    Muse at Wolverhampton Civic.

    Muse, Manchester Apollo on November 2nd... awsome.

    Reading was pretty cool this year too.

    Best gig i saw this year was My Vitriol at Reading - absolutely fantastic. I also saw them at Manchester Uni later in the year. But the best live act overall was Ash, whoi also saw twice - at Reading and at the Ulster Hall in Belfast - absolutely fantastic! <IMG alt="image" SRC="biggrin.gif" border="0">

    Ash were very impressive, saw them 3 times <IMG alt="image" SRC="smile.gif" border="0">. It was cool when they sprayed fake snow (foam) the roof for "There's A Star".

    Black Sabbath put on a good show at Ozzfest as well, come to think of it.

    Can't decide between two....
    Offspring @ Wembley arena, 21st January.
    Less Than Jake @ London Astoria, 19th April.
  • Former MemberFormer Member Posts: 1,876,324 The Mix Honorary Guru
    YES at Hammersmith Apollo 4th December.

    Best I've seen for ages. The new album Magnification is excellent.

    Going to see Mostly Autumn at the Mean Fiddler on 12th January. Best new band for years.

    Can't choose between:-

    Marilyn Manson @ Docklands Arena in January
    or
    Linkin Park @ the Appollo in September.

    Leeds Festival. just all of it!

    The highlights were Travis cause they were just class!

    Marilyn Manson as well. Dont really like his music or his theories on our human race but you can't argue with the fact that he puts on one hell of a show!

    Although it was "short'n'sweet", king adora @ the London Astoria was ace. They have so much energy and they are so different to alot of the stuff around at the mo.

    Probably marlyn manson at reading . Im not a big fan of the music or the message but it was totaly amazing to watch live . All the shit they did on stage did actuly make me scared.

    Saw Stereophonics at the Millenium Stadium in Cardiff - ROCKED!

    Suported by The Crocketts (mental), Ash and The Black Crows.

    Such a great gig. Shame the camp over weekend was canceled due to Foot + Mouth though <IMG alt="image" SRC="redface.gif" border="0">)


    Having seen Ash at the Phonics gig, I went to see them play an Intimate gig at Bristol Academy. Supported by Seafood (Bristol band - very good). Brillian gig too.


    But would have to say the Phonics gig topped it!

    Radiohead Aug 2001 Hollywood Bowl

    They played three and a half hours, kicked ass!
  • Former MemberFormer Member Posts: 1,876,324 The Mix Honorary Guru
    U2 @ Slane for two gigs in the summer

    I was working both nights on the bar. The first week was the week Bono's dad died so it was a special atmosphere, the second date was more upbeat and kick ass.

    Moby was excellent at the second gig, I was suprised.

    they stopped Ash comming on for an hour and put the Ireland football match up on the big screens, when Ireland scored it was unbelievable! 90,000 going totally mad <IMG alt="image" SRC="biggrin.gif" border="0"> Then Ash came on and rocked.

    brilliant.
