    Just wondering where all you guitarists were playing...What is the largest crowd you have played in front of???
    I played an open air concert for about 3000 people..It was great. I would love , just once, to play a huge venue..Like 60,000 plus would be excellent...

    The biggest I've played is 3000 at a (believe it or not) open air Blue light disco on the waterfront. Those kids knew how to party.

    Seriously though. Played at a local fireworks display once. Had about 3500 at it. Big gig for a bunch of under-talented 16 year-olds.
    As for the largest audience base. I'm in a drama group and we did Oklahoma 2 years back. I played the part of Will Parker. We put through 7,500 people over a three week run.

    Supported Goanna Band and Aussie Crawl many years ago in an outdoor concert... it just pi**ed down all night and blew up the generator. Promoters had to give the money back to everyone. Big crowd, dunno how many but...:laugh:

    The largest audience I played in front of was about 50, but they had all come to see us, and the atmosphere was great. I think that's way more important than how many people you play for.........But 60,000 would be cool too!

    played to a huge crowd supporting noiseworks in the 90's in mackay, got no idea how many people were there, and 2 gigs at festival hall in brisbane, packed house, i think it holds around 6000 to 7000 people. those were the days.
