    What was the best one you've ever been to TomF?

    I saw Tool once, that was probably the best gig I've been to, the Melvins were opening and I'd say they were better than Tool...big bands don't usually come down to Australia much and our local music scene is absoloutley **** so yeah I choose that one.

    I saw both, Summer Sanitarium and Godsmak & Metallica. Both were really good. There are a few good local bands down here also.

    Meta|Gear - i'm going to see NIN too when they come to the UK - should be fun :D

    Beavis - I dont know what the best gig ive ever been to was. Most of Reading (Festival) 2004 year was awesome...this year they've got Iron Maiden supposedly

    I saw a local band called Rival Joustas who were awesome a few months back, but i think the best would have been at reading. at the front for green day was pretty fun. saw faithless once and they were cool. Heavy gigs are always fun though...

    I always wanted to see Pantera, never got the chance though, as I was only 16 at the time and couldn't afford to travel to go see them.

    Apparently you haven't really been to a gig unless you saw Pantera, I've seen some live videos and it's insane there's no other band that ever had the intensity they had when playing live.

    I went to see see Prince's Musicology tour at the RBC center in Raleigh. Was a pretty badass show...unless you were sitting above floor level (or so I hear).

    Also some years before that, I managed to carry my lazy arse up to D.C. to see his show there. Prince's live shows are absolutely amazing (not to mention the near two hour encore at the concert in D.C....which I had to leave before it was finished).

    I saw Pantera in 95 in Houston Texas with Type O Negative, pretty rockin. But in 97 I went to Lollapalooza with Metallica, Rage Against the Machine, Soundgarden, The Ramones, Rancid.

    But the most entertaining show I've ever been to was a rave in Lafayette, Louisiana of all places. Rabbit in the Moon was headlining the show, and boy what a show. This "Bunny" guy would jump all over the stage in all kind of outfits. Grinding a cast-iron mask with a power-grinder throwing sparks everywhere. Swinging on a rope over the crowd, lasers reflecting off of his discoball outfit. I was gettin off hard to that sh*t man.
