I'm just curious, who have you paid good money to see live or who are you going to see? Keeping it music based for now.

For me:

Girls Aloud - Tangled Up Tour (2008, Elton Hall)
Hadouken! (2010, KOKO)
Chase & Status (2011, Tokyo York)
Redlight (2012, Fibbers York)
Evolution Festival (2013, Newcastle Quayside)
South West Four Festival (2013, Clapham Common)

Not loads so this is quite easy to rank but here we go, in order from favourite to least favourite:

01 Katy Perry (after Prism)
02 Florence + the Machine (after Ceremonials)
03 Lorde (after Pure Heroine)
04 Rihanna (after Rated R)
05 Of Monsters and Men (after My Head Is An Animal)
06 Katy B (after On a Mission)

The things in brackets give an idea of the time I saw them and therefore what tunes were played. Thinking about seeing Flo again after HBHBHB because she is stunning live. Badly need to see Nicki too.
