The Big List of Concerts

As you can see from this list, I go & have been to a hell of a lot of concerts. When I was younger, my parents used to bring me and my sisters to all sorts of concerts and gigs all over the country. I never really broke the habit if I’m honest.

I love nothing more than a great gig where the tunes and drinks are flowing. A gig in the Big Top during The Galway Arts Festival is my idea of a perfect night out.

Gigs are always interesting because it’s usually the ones you don’t have high hopes for that are mind-blowing and the ones you think will be mind-blowing are merely mediocre.

Here is the somewhat full list of the concerts and venues I’ve been too – I say somewhat because I’m positive there are some I’m missing. As it is getting increasingly more expensive to see your favourite artists live, I thought this list might be handy. If there is any concert or venue you are considering going too and are wondering if it’s worth it, have a look at the list and if I’ve seen them or been there, feel free to ask and I’ll let you know if I’d go again.
