I would make sure I liked them more when they came to my city because I'd only just started listening to them when they did and I regret it so much. If they had left it 2 months later I would have seen them and wouldn't have to be sitting here crying that I'm not going to Reading tomorrow.

Go back in time, that's the best thing ever, id see all the legends of the 50s , elvis , eddie cochrane,Billy fury,buddy Holly. Id also see muse at the battle of the bands, and at some pub gigs before they got famous. if I could go back id be so young. Why does time go so fast?

I would like to go back to Earls Court 2004 (first night) and experience that show through the eyes of a 22-year-old rather than a 15-year-old who had only been to one gig before that.


Yes this!


Probably also some of the early gigs in Devon. Gotta freak bands out if someone turns up to a gig with 8 people there and sings all the words to their new demos.

Haha, Niall, that would be brilliant!


Matt : "We're going to play a new song now we've never played before, it's called Showbiz"

Some bloke in the crowd : "OH MY FUCKING GOD! YEEEEEEEEEESSSSSSSSSS!!!!!!!!!"

Or even...

"This one's called Boredom...we, er, we've never played this one live"

*evil grin*


The obviously handing over a copy of The Resistance for the band to sign. Think that would probably put the band off playing forever.


Matt did find it pretty funny when someone requested Jimmy Kane at Shepherd's Bush in 2006.
