Good old grunge rock act Bush have been around for years and their comeback tour was one of my highlights of the year. They did a cheeky cover of Breathe by Pink Floyd and The Beatles Come Together were highlights of such a good performance.

Perhaps a little too polished and she jumped around like a lunatic, but it's worth a mention as I waited years to go see Alanis in action, great performance nonetheless!
