Its a tough one - because I was at many great music events over the years
The most recent one was Paul Carrack at the Olympia back in October - great show

Looking forward now to the NCH New Years Eve concert which has seen many great names over the years
This years its Charles Castronovo - well worth going to if you get the chance

Has to be Klassik unter sternen featuring Elina Garanca and friends.

Superb concert in a Benedictine Abbey, Stift Gottweig, on top of a hill in the Wachau valley. It seemed to me to be much bigger than it's more famous companion, Melk Abbey some miles upriver. The crowd was estimated in the region of 5,000 which I couldn't see fitting into Melk although I might be wrong there too.

The highlight was the large segment from Aida that the whole ensemble were involved in.

Garanca and Frittoli duet doing Offenbach's Barcarole was pretty special also.

Enjoy the NCH. I'd go a lot more often if I lived nearer. Going to the Christmas one myself.

Siamsa Cois Laoi - Don McClean, The Wolfe Tones, Leo Sayer. It was a very hot day, went there by train, the concert was amazing. I remember being on somebodies shoulders, unbelievable atmosphere, despite the crowds it was electric, no trouble, no badness, just loads of young people having a great time.

I also have fond memories of Elaine Paige in London as Piaf. I'm a life long fan of Piaf. My mother saw Judy Garland in London, can't remember why but that's what she said.

Elton John in Limerick a few years ago was dire. I'll never go to Thomond Park again.

Electric Picnic 2015. Their best line-up ever.

Blur, Tame Impala, War on Drugs, FKA Twigs, Florence & The Machine.

That was a highpoint. The last 2 picnics have been rubbish.
