      • Blondie Chaplin, who I first met in 1971, was exemplary in his delivery and performances, especially, "Sail on Sailor", one of Brian's most prolific pieces. Blondie's voice was made for that song.

      • Still kind of hard to believe it actually happened. Probably the best gig I've been to at the Arts Centre and I've been to some corkers.
      • Had never seen any of the bands before Thursday night. Due to health issues was touch & go as to whether i could attend. Glad i did. What a night! Minor technical issues aside it was one of the better gigs i've been to. Thoroughly enjoyed each set & would (and have) recommended to friends to come along next time if they come back
      • Fantastic gig and great venue.

      The Theater at MGM National Harbor - National Harbor
      US
      • Al Jardine with his son Matt, were amazing with their strong vocals and performances. They complimented Brian and the phenomenal set in the Greatest Hits show. Sound quality could've been better controlled, but the boys really got after it.

      • I agree. A&B was totally outstanding!

      The Raveonettes
      Lido - Berlin
      Germany
      • Band and I disagree somewhat on what their best songs are. Too excessive strobe lighting, relentlessly, prevented them from getting a better rating. It's been the fifth time I've seen them, but I preferred their 2012 gig, in which their then most recent album, Observator, was heavily featured, and which contains beautiful pop numbers. Pe'ahi, their 2014 album, which of course got the lion's share in this gig, is a lot more intense and gloomy, a bit too monotonous for my liking.

    • Brian Wilson
      Brian Wilson
      The Theater at MGM National Harbor - National Harbor
      US
      • Although Brian's voice was a bit hampered by a cold, all of the singers in the Brian Wilson Band were great. The show was what I expected, and enjoyed. I missed getting a chance to communicate with Brian, Al, and Blondie, who I have known and befriended for nearly 5 decades. As a music artist myself, Brian Wilson inspired me and I was able to learn much from his style, and presentation of each song. He is my friend and mentor, and I will always be thankful for his musical contributions.

    • Dark Tranquillity
      Dark Tranquillity
      Venue - Vancouver
      Canada
      • I think sound issues in Dark Tranquility's set marginalized an otherwise almost perfect gig (good crowd with no stupidity level or pushing). People in the middle rows before/after the moshpit still struggled to hear Mikael Stanne's vocals, and if you moved right to the stage, you were essentially only listening to an instrumental band. I heard the first 2 DT songs from back where the sound mixer guy was sitting, and vocals were a bit more audible there - however anywhere near the stage and you were literally listening to a band playing Dark Tranquility songs as instrumentals. But Insomnium vocals were more than just audible, they were powerful. I wonder what happened with Dark Tranquility there? Mikael is a powerful vocalist as well so I can't imagine he was the problem. I have seen these 2 same bands before in London, England and the sound was way better in that small venue (Camden Underworld) than The Venue (which is a way more better developed).
      Good

      C'est le plus beau concert que j'ai vu toute ma vie, le chanteur (sa voix, sa présence et son choix des chansons), le groupe musicale, le public, l'endroit, le son, la mis en scène ... etc magnifique, formidable, bravo et grand merci pour la joie et le bien être que j'ai senti tout au long de l'inoubliable Byblos 2012. Nous sommes en 2022, 10 ans après je continue à voir cette soirée comme c'est la première fois. 8*

      John Denver in Jackson Hole, US on Sat, 21 Sep 1996

      I was at this concert, was on a motorcycle trip thru the west, spent a few days in JH, saw he was going to be here. Could not get tickets for Friday’s show, got on a wait list for the Saturday show at the time of
      The show since it was also sold out. They put a couple of rows of seats on the stage and made these available, I ended up with one of those seats, probably 10 feet from The performer. I don’t remember much about the play list but it was a great show and very serendipitous outcome for a spur of the moment coincidence of being there when he was performing.

      Lizzy were awesome and Lynott a true star.

      My first concert and I was blown away! The best concert ever. I’ve seen concerts on TV but you don’t get the real feel of all the love and excitement as it is live. I am in love with Korn , and Johnathon Davis how he emphasized his songs he is very dramatic and it pulls you into his songs.

      ZZ Top in Stafford, UK on Sat, 18 Oct 1986

      I was there, as a 6th Former from Ashton-under-Lyne. It was one of my first gigs and it felt like we were in a cattle shed. ZZ Top were on for about 50 minutes and were decent, but it was a short-lived evening. There was a giant illuminated Egyptian death mask at the back of the stage. The musicians were trying a few things before they went to Wembley Arena for the real gig.

      Loved going to Margaritaville to see MIke West (Truckstop Honeymoon) perform. A truly unique act, with clever songs. Unfortunately, Katrina ran them off and they landed in Kansas. But their music was just as good.

      Yes in Seattle, US on Wed, 17 Jul 2002

      It’s 19 years later and I still have the same excitement that I did back then. They were in top form. Jon forgot some lyrics to a song and just made a self mocking bow. It’s was hilarious. The only drawback was an overzealous security guard. He took my brother’s disposable camera and ripped out the film. Funny that he didn’t do the same to a blonde girl who used a flash with her phone camera. Still, it was a concert that will remain in fond memory.

      Frank Zappa in Nashville, US on Mon, 18 Oct 1976

      Basketball arena, sorry acoustics, sitting on the gym floor. I remember speakers at the side of the audience first coming alive during The Torture Never Stoos -- female moans running all around the Auditorium. Zappa was my idol, I loved the concert, though it was probably just another stop for him.

      I was 18 years old, born in Hamilton, but moved to Grimsby Ontario with my family years earlier.
      Hearing that Uriah Heep was coming to Hamilton, I gathered a group of my friends together and 8 of us went to the concert and we’re not disappointed! They were and are still a awesome sound that I still listen to in my 67th year! Amazing band, like Cactus and Spirit , plus King Crimson to name a few I still love to listen to today. So many memories, so little time????????????????????

      The Clash in Portsmouth, UK on Tue, 06 Mar 1984

      Easily the best live gig I have seen. The band led by Strummer, Simonin on bass stormed it even with Topper and Jones on board. I was with a mate near the front of the stage and it was fucking intense. The crowd just wouldn't leave at the end and they came back on for the standard two encores and then two more. The last after all the lights had switched on and fans were starting to vacate. I recall turning around and moving with the crowd toward the exit and then...bang! Off went the lights. Brief pitch blackness. The crowd surged back and Strummer and the band flew back on with one last blast of White Riot. Blew me away.

      Ian Dury fan about
      Ian Dury in Canterbury, UK on Thu, 18 May 1978

      He was supported by a rock and roll revival band called Whirlwind who were ok. I recall their singer saying at one point 'this was our last single - never f- got anywhere. It's called 'hng loose'. Then on came Matumbi with 'Brother Blackbeard on guitar' as Dennis Bovell was introduced as. The Blockheads were excellent. Full steam ahead. NWR looked like what I can only describe as 'Fagin on Speed'. Dury obviously enjoying it. Came on and offered to throw 'A Solid Gold Rolex Watch (from Camden Market)' into the audience - which he did. Bizarrely he did the same with a bunch of bananas. Of course the final encore was all 3 bands back for SADARAR. And his parting comment to us (and the band) was 'We'll come ere again'! Brilliant.
