I saw a similar question on Facebook the other day and thought it was an interesting question. If you could attend one final greatest hits concert of an artist who has passed away then who would you pick? Perhaps you could even mock up your dream setlist if you like ~

I think mine would have to be Amy Winehouse just to hear her voice live would be such an experience. I imagine Michael Jackson's shows were amazing too and he must have really put on a show with all of the costumes & dancing etc.

100% Whitney at her peak. Nobody can even come close vocally and I'd have loved to have heard that live.

Really tough call between Johnny Cash and Michael Jackson.
I think MJ though probably, because it would've been more of a show. One of my friends is SUCH a huge MJ fan and was so excited for the This Is It tour, had bought loads of tickets for it etc, such a shame to have just missed out on seeing her idol 💔

I got to see Amy before she died at TitP! So I am really lucky in that respect.


All the artists I really love are still alive, but I think it'd be Whitney or MJ at the height of their respective careers for the pure spectacle. Like going to see Beyonce it's one of those once-in-a-lifetime experiences going to see a true showstopper that you may not adore but will be overawed by their performance.

David Bowie, for sure. He was such a strong part of the music I grew up around that it would have to be him for sure. Such a legend.

Whitney easily, she's the only celeb Death that's REALLY affected me. Like Liam says, at her peak she was untouchable.

MJ as well probably, in fact I really should get to rediscovering his hits at some point.

Aside from that I can't come up with anyone else I'd be enthusiastic about going to see live.

Queen with Freddie Mercury. I'm going to see queen with Adam lambert in December but Freddie was in a league of his own.

Also a obscure one to many on Buzzjack, Emerson, Lake and Palmer I would have liked to see. My dad is a fan of them and their songs are very good, and Greg Lake was a great singer!

I honestly don't know because none of my actual favourite artists have died. Maybe the original Rat Pack? Or David Bowie.

Amy Winehouse for sure - I was obsessed with Back To Black when I was a teen, such a good album!

A few near-misses for me -

* In 1997, when I was 8, I lived minutes away from Wembley Stadium. One night I heard a voice start singing out from the sky - it was Michael Jackson, performing in the stadium on his HIStory tour!! Pretty magical listening to it biggrin.gif

* Eleven years later in 2008, I'm in HMV, and they're selling a limited amount of Glastonbury tickets. I consider buying one, but I decide not to as I didn't know who to go with and didn't have a tent. Amy performed that year...

* My friend saw Whitney at the O2 in 2010, but she said she was really disappointed as infamously she was long past her peak by then.

My answer would definitely be Freddie Mercury - astonished it took so long for his name to appear in this thread, thank goodness for troublepink!

My favourite band are The Beatles so my answer for this is naturally all four of them during Beatlemania. Travelling quite a fair bit back in time laugh.gif

He was the first person I thought of when seeing this thread laugh.gif gutted that I never really saw him or rather took notice of him when he was alive. I was born in 87 so was too young really to know when he died in 91. However I remember I heard bo rap a lot when I was a kid thanks to it being on the soundtrack to Wayne's world 👍😃

Agree with Queen with Freddie Mercury, they were responsible for a song that the whole family actually loved across generations. Michael Jackson and Whitney at her peak also agreed on.

Another artist I wish had been well enough to perform live was the late Alice Martineau. She suffered from Cystic fibrosis and died in 2003 at the age of 30.
