My Life

Live Earth

I managed to get a couple of tickets to the Live Earth concert in London yesterday. Wow it was a good show with some incredible performers. I'm not going to list them all but it was the first time I had seen the Foo Fighters live and they were just superb, loud massive energy and great tunes, they really got the crowd going. In all there were about 20 acts during the 10 hours show, of course there was some pap, Metallica and Genesis spring to mind but then you needed time to go and get a beer or burger anyway. Of the other good or great performances were Snow Patrol, Madonna (surprisingly as I'm not normally a fan), the Red Hot Chili Peppers (of course), the Beastie Boys and the Black Eyed Peas.

It was also the first time I'd seen the new Wembley, even though it was massively over budget and late it is a great stadium. Apparently there were 85,000 there yesterday but the queue for beers and food was never more than 3 minutes. Even when the entire stadium piled out after the show towards the tube, it only took us 90 minutes to get back to my flat.

Overall a superb day, photos are already up on Flickr
