what gigs have you been to, where the support act either massively upstaged or was massively bigger than the main act?
I guess they would've done that.
It was good. The Pixies finished and a large number of people stayed for a few minutes afterwards chanting 'Fuck the Stereophonics' before the cricket ground emptied. Goldfrapp were playing before them too! It was a bad day.
was fairly ridiculous. But I think Cursive supporing !FR! beats it.
was Terris supported by Coldplay. Although to be fair at that point no-one had heard of Coldplay and Terris were on the front cover of the NME. Where are they now, etc.
out played idiot pilot.
jay jay and the pistolets upstages everyone, everytime he supports anyone.
at the Venue in Edinburgh in 2001. They were great. The Strokes were headlining, and were pretty dull. I think we left before they'd finished.
at we are scientists. They were great (f,r)
I also saw kaiser chiefs supporting franz ferdinand before the kaisers were properly "big". They were much better then. He was chucking the mic stand all over the place and jumping around instead of the swooning he does nowadays.
also iLiKETRAiNS quite upstaged forward russia the first time i saw forward russia. It was great. Great.
