Following on from OB1's Elton John thread what gigs have you been to which surpassed expectations?
Conversely which ones did you look forward to which were total flops?
Both of mine were at the Hammersmith Odeon.
In the early 80's my brother rang and said he had a spare ticket to see Meatloaf. I said I wasn't interested, didn't like him much had none of his records etc etc. I ended up going!
Wow!! What an entertainer, 100% effort from him, total respect for his fans, brilliant gig
Conversely I had really been looking forward to seeing the Pretenders (had a bit of a crush on Chrissy Hind but that was allowed), They were total crap, not interested, seemed bored by the whole thing, they were on stage for just over an hour and I felt cheated and angry all the way home (which took longer than the gig).
