Leonard Cohen, Conor Oberst and John McLaughlin – top gigs for grown-ups in 2008

The year just ending was a vintage year for live music. From grand opera house to sweaty rock dive, and worthy municipal folk gig to massive arena poprock spectacular, I saw some great musicians for grown-ups performing in 2008.

The five gigs which will linger longest in my memory were:

1. Leonard Cohen – London O2
2. Conor Oberst – Portsmouth
3. John McLaughlin – Barbican
4. Bjork – Plymouth
5. Cecilia Bartoli – Barbican

And the two next best were:
6. Morrissey – Roundhouse
7. Hansel & Gretel – Royal Opera House
