Haha, sweet :). Did you ask to see his dick? I would of.
I like your story time, I'm gonna join in:
Bat for Lashes at Latitude was amazing because, for one, I love her. But while the Manchester date I mentioned had a much better set due to its increased length, the Latitude show was better as I was more drunk and was having a great time at what was the most beautiful and peaceful festival I have ever been to. Plus I had great company in my best friend and this lovely girl we met on the coach and subsequently camped with (along with a few others whom we all bonded with on the 6ish hour journey there). It was also nice having two people both pissed out of their minds and simply relishing the joy that I was seeing one of my most beloved musicians. Cue lots of hair stroking and tapping and smiling. It was a great memory.
Imogen Heap had to be there as it was a fantastic show and performance, but lacking any of the personal merits of the previous gig mentioned. Still, Imogen Heap!
Of the others I have little to say really. Blind Guardian was just a really good show, that isn't a band I've grown weary of and that is Metal; so relevant.
Metallica was also a great show and even despite my lack of enthusiasm for them being just as true then as it is now it was really impressive how none of that mattered if you play all of Master of Puppets. And other stuff.
And Guns N' Roses just cause I was a ridiculous fanboy at the time. The day after Metallica too... thats two good headliners for one festival. Of course, it would of been way better had it been the real Guns N' Roses.
I've enjoyed Dream Theater a few times live too, I suppose I should of included them too. The first and second times I saw them was the best, 2007 or 2008 I think. Since then they've been disappointing, even despite the odd decent song thrown in. But thats just Dream Theater for you, isn't it?
Opeth suffer from the same recent disappointments that make the earlier, fonder memories less fond. They were great the first and second times I saw them. Back in 2006/7.
And finally, festival shows are way better than inside ones. Especially for bigger, headling bands. The open air, dark starry nights really make the stage shows better.
