    Just wondering what the best concert you ever saw was.

    Mine was Led Zeppelin, back in 1977.
    [a little fuzzy about the date.....not sure why]

    No opening act and none needed....

    Whats your's?

    AC/DC. Forget first time but again a few years ago for the "Stiff Upper Lip" tour. Nothing will ever match sitting 5 rows from Angus Young.

    That is incredible. No kidding!

    I can imagine the warm wind of Diamond Head blowing while Seals and Crofts sings.... "Summer Breeze.. Makes me feel fine..."

    B.T.O. The White Rock British Columbia based band rocking the crater with "Taking care of Business!"

    America... A horse with no name.

    That takes the cake.... and my "Eagles" concert at McMahon Stadium in Calgary gets blown away by your Diamond Head Event.

    I Bow To You!

    Yes, it was incredible. I was stationed in Hawaii at the time.
    I was 24 years old and one month short of getting out of the military after 6 years.
    Seems like a different life time...well it was.
    One of my fondest memories.

    And ya, that makes me "chronologically challenged" :thumbsup:

    Well I know most of you are not country music fans, but this past Wednesday night we went to see Diamond Rio a country group..it was general admission so we ended up practically on the stage, and then we were sitting across from a couple the guy had along his guitar that he get autographs on, they thought he was with the band so when meet and greet came up he vouched for us and we actually shook hands and talked to the band members...after the concert I was handed a guitar pick from one of the singers also Marty Roe the lead singer shook my hand and said "Its nice to meet you sweetheart"..it was an awesome concert!!!!!!!

    My actual favorite concert to go to would be Tim McGraw...

    Maynard Ferguson....Berg Gym....UW-Stevens Point about 1973-74..

    When he did "MacArthur Park" his trumpet nearly put me deaf. That was the loudest song I ever heard in concert, and that includes several rock acts.

    I saw Robin Trower at Wembley Stadium in London in 1976 and I know they heard him in Leeds.

    Conversely, when the Who played "Live at Leeds", they probably heard them in London ;)

    For me, the best was probably Jethro Tull at the Royal Albert Hall around the late 70s (what I consider to be the best Tull line-up).

    Then there was the first concert I ever went to: Thin Lizzy in Sheffield - probably around 75/6 ...

    Then there was .... :cane:

    Back in 2005, a couple of friends and I travelled from here in B.C. to Detroit Lakes, Minnesota for WE Fest. Some of the performers that year were Alan Jackson, Toby Keith, Tim McGraw, Dierks Bentley, Gretchen Wilson, SHeDAISY, Big and Rich, Emerson Drive, Joe Nichols, and Sara Evans. Great time!

    WE fest is probably the greatest country festival out there.
    Heather I've actually met Marty Roe too. I love country but it's just not in concert form for me. As great as Alan Jackson and George Strait are I probably wouldn't pay big money to see them only cause to me they're just suited better for listening to. Best country show probably would be Hank Jr.

    I have never seen Alan Jackson or George Strait in concert, your right they are for good listening, I probably wouldnt pay to see them..but now Diamond Rio we got these tickets for $25 a piece very cheap and then right on the stage to couldnt beat it...and they were awesome!!! Now if you have never seen Tim McGraw and you love country go and see him in concert he is Great and puts on an awesome show...Im glad to see there are some country fans here...

    I love live shows and have very seldom been disappointed, making it hard to pick a favorite. ELO sucked, but Hall and Oates was the opening act and they were very good. That said, here goes:

    1. Rolling Stones - Steel Wheels tour
    2. Pink Floyd(1986)
    3. Garth Brooks(1991)
    4. Bruce Springsteen(1984)
    5. Paul McCartney(1988)
    6. Most every other act I have seen live - save ELO.

    Good one. One night a band named "Brand X" was playing near a pub I used to frequent not far from central London. The place was in the round.
    Not a large crowd this night...Brand X was a jazz-rock fusion group. I was sitting on the far right side of the arena...about the same level as the drummer to my right. Upon further inspection it was Phil Collins. I was about 20 feet away from him. Other than shaking hands with Governor Moonbeam Jerry Brown(Wisconsin politicians exempted) Collins is the most famous person I've been that close to. Good drummer, too.

    I saw Bob Seger in my junior high gymnasium for a whopping $2!

    He was just a local and it was when his very first album just came out. Live bullet came out right after that and well, you know the rest.

    Got to meet REO Speedwagon this summer. Great guys!

    Saw Rolling Stones and Bruce Springsteen at PacBell park in SF.

    Saw Kiss in my home town ice arena (holds about 700) before they went big.

    Jimmy Buffet from the 5th row center with baskstage tour.

    Met Hootie and the blowfish, Glenn Campbell, Alice Cooper, and Jonathan Cain of journey. But they aren't the most famous that I have met.... :thumbsup:

    It would have to be the only concert I've ever been to: On June 26, I went to Tom Petty and Pearl Jam at the Xcel Energy Center in St. Paul.

    :rotflmao: I've seen Garth but was to ashamed to say. I'm even more ashamed to say next to AC/DC he probably has one of the most intence shows out there. For an old bald man he sure had energy. I'll bet he was on the juice :jumpsmile:
