My Favourite Gig Experience

I've seen a quote floating around on the internet about how most people these days would rather spend their money on an experience than on physical items, and I am definitely in that camp. I love nothing more than surprising Joe (or any loved one for that matter) with a well thought out experience that I know will add another level of richness to their life. This month, I'm lucky enough to have two exciting experiences to look forward to, and they're both music related. 
First off, I'm going to see my beloved Busted with my beloved Leona! After seeing McBusted with her twice, the second the gigs were announced, we knew we'd be going to see Busted. I can still remember the sad, dark day when Busted announced their split and sadly I had never had the chance to see them live when I was a teen. In a way, I'm kind of glad I never got to see them as without that me and Leona might have never became true boos and decided that we should meet each other for the first time at a McBusted gig! 
My second exciting gig experience is seeing Manic Street Preachers perform Everything Must Go at Swansea's Liberty Stadium. This was actually one of those surprises I mentioned for Joe, as they're easily his favourite band. We've seen them quite a few times live now and they never disappoint and Everything Must Go is one of my favourite Manics' albums so I'm pretty excited that I managed to get us both a ticket! We last saw them at Cardiff Castle, which has to be one my favourite gigs we've been to as the atmosphere was just incredible, and you just can't beat an outdoor gig when the weather is nice. 
One person I would love to see live would be The Boss himself, Bruce Springsteen so you can imagine how gutted I was to hear that Chill Home Insurance were offering people the chance to win tickets! If I'd have won, I would have taken my ol' papa as I can remember The Boss being the soundtrack to many a car journey when I was a nipper, and just singing along to Born In The USA or Dancing In The Dark have always stuck in my mind. Of course, another band I would have loved to see would have The Smiths, but I think it's safe to say they won't be rebanding any time soon. I have managed to see Morrissey live twice now, so I guess I can't grumble too much! 
What's your favourite gig experience? Who would you love to see?
