If you live anywhere close to the Rose Bowl, that is...

At least they are a tad bit better than Neil Diamond (sorry Lyn!)... the acoustics are great from the bathroom!!! :D I can't wait for someone I really like to come and play here.

I know what Clanger means about being close to an open air vanue and hearing it for free, several years ago, Bruce Springsteen played sheffield, and it could be heard quite some distance away along the Don valley.
I also used to work nightshift at a company next door to the Sheffield arena (behind the stumble Inn pub), and of course the Don Valley stadium, so it was innevitable that we`d be party to hearing the free concert and generally the fireworks etc at the end.
So we`d either order a curry delivered in, or fire up a BBQ and chill outside listening to the concerts at the DV stadium.

We`d also make a few quid opening up the works carpark/yard and allow folks to park their cars......... for a small fee ;)

seems Metallica are to play a couple of cheapo concerts, 1 in germany, the other at the O2 arena, tickets are in the region of 5/10 euros, maximum of 2 tickets each are available to registered members of Metallica website/forum.
1st come 1st served for uber dedicated Metallica fans

I'm a little bit further from rosebowl than clangs, i'm about a mile and half crow flying, so i'm hearing a very distorted REM, wind must be in other direction, coz i heard Neil Diamond perfectly.

Although I have uber dedicated friends who are in the fan club who cannot get a response (they can only apply online)!!!

Oh and Booie, my Dad's colleague from Whiteley heard lots of REM too!!!
