I have been to over 80 concerts/shows, and it's really hard to pick my favorite! What was yours?? Can you remember your first concert? Mine was Bob Dylan that my dad took me to when I was 6.
U2 Joshua Tree at the old Orange Bowl in Miami, 1987. Had Bono looked to my side of the stage (my right, his left) instead of the other side, I might very well have been the guy he picked from the audience to play guitar with them for one song. Ahhhhhhhhh, the memories...
One up on you...92'achtung baby tour..joe robbie stadium--I ended up at the front row!! Pure luck!! Bono was in front of us the entire time!
U2 is impeccable live...I've been to hundreds of concerts..Prince is fun, Bonjovi high energy...etc etc...anyway I can go on and on!
I have been to aaron tippin, tom petty, charley daniels. I cannot remember any more. My favorite was charlie daniels, but I used to really like tom petty but he isn't as good in concert as charlie daniels.
My first concert was Toad the Wet Sprocket, I think I was 17.
Since then some of my favourites were..Tori Amos, White Zombie/Pantera, Hordefest...wich was lots of performances but I saw Lenny Kravitts and also The Blues Traveler, and one of the most amazing shows I saw, believe it or not, was Gretchen Wilson. She did a cover of Heart, and also Led Zepplin, it was amazing!!!
Haha that's the year I was born. Very cool! I've been to the Orange Bowl before for a UM game. At a Green Day concert my friend got to go on stage and play Billy Joe's guitar, then he let him keep it
Rolling Stones...Steel Wheels tour....Cincinnati...got high!
Didn't mean to do that. I just thought it was funny you chose a concert from that year. Wish I could have seen U2... so I'm jealous!
I did not attend in person, but absolutely loved the recording of the Moody Blues at the Red Rocks in 1992. Still hoping to see my favorite band before they no longer perform, and I am going to try and go this summer. I also love U2 and would enjoy going to one of their concerts. My friends still talk about the Joshua Tree concert in 87.
Sorry, what was your favorite band? Definitely go this summer. I've never been to a bad concert! Even if the music wasn't that great, the people made the night amazing.
I am sorry I did not clarify, but I meant my favorite band was the Moody Blues.
Stones '89--or was it '90?, Raleigh, NC
Santana '76 (?) Frejus-or-thereabouts, France
Dang -- also Clapton, '89 or '90 was superb.
I too have been to many many shows over the years and one of my favorite concerts was Kid Rock at the House of Blues before he really hit it big. I was right at the front of the stage and Kid Rock didn't jave a huge ego that fame brought him later on in his career. He was energetic and funny, poured his soul into the show and music and put on one hell of a show.
I saw him a few years later in an arena and...well...I prefer to just remember the HOB concert.
SweetiePie- Moody Blues, I figured thats what you meant, just wasn't sure. Definitely go this summer!
Donna- Bob Dylan 15 years ago? I think that's when I went... but I went to the Florida show.
Teresa- All of those concerts sound amazing! Wish I could have been there.
Adam- I saw Kid Rock after he made it big. He was very good. Bunch of strippers on the stage
Wow, too many for me to pick one too!
Rascal Flatts & Blake Shelton, couple of years ago to a sell-out highest attendence ever show at Reunion Park in Dallas
Two KISS concerts early 80s during period of no make-up in Central Texas
Chris LeDeoux twice very shortly before he died at Billy Bob's Texas in Ft Worth
Three Dog Night about 15 years ago maybe in Central Texas
Neici - The Southern Songbird! She is amazing. I even wrote a hub about her.
Ratt was my first concert. I wouldn't suggest it for beginners, I have seen guns n roses, Phil Collins, Def Leoppard, Hootie ( love you Darius), and lately I have seen Sublime but I would have to say Def Leoppard was my all time favorite and still is, although Kid Rock does rock but havent seen him live.
Rolling Stones at Earls Court in the early 70s, those were the days !
Flogging Molly concert, in Chicago ON St. Patrick's Day. Need I say more? Those guys know how to party.
I went to sooo many concerts in my more youthful days... AC/DC is always fun and Kiss puts on a great show though they're not my fave musically.
I used to really go for the super heavy stuff and have seen White Zombie, Pantera, all those types. Good fun if you like to feel as if you've been in a street brawl post-show.
Saw Willie Nelson as a kid and that was awesome. Steppenwolf actually put on a fantastic show and still sounded perfect as ever at an outdoor festival I caught in the mid-nineties.
Took my little sis to Green Day and they really are showmen - even brought audience members up to take over for the band & then signed and gave their instruments to those audience members to take home.
Saw Soundgarden on their last tour. Delicious.
There have been so many...things are getting fuzzy...
Best recent show? The Fabulous Thunderbirds. Great stuff.
Very good list. I went to the Green Day show where they did the same thing. Was that the tour with Blink and Jimmy Eat World? I haven't seen Soundgarden yet, although I would love to.
I missed the opening acts (boo hoo) on that Green Day show but I think it was that tour. They are going around again this summer for their new album, too.
The best live concert I ever went to was Robbie Williams in Auckland. People can say what they like about him, but he can entertain.
The best concerts for me are always the ones I don't go to. But I couldn't quite tell you which one I enjoyed the best. )
I deff am into it, so just tell me if they give one in due time.
Yellowcard played at my Grad Night at Disneyworld. They were ok, but I only know 3 of their songs. Nice, thanks!
Not been to many concerts - I spent my youth drinking beer and watching punk bands in sweaty pubs. Happy Days.
I did see Bowie and Nine Inch Nails at Glastonbury, and both were quality.
Just remembered a band that defied sanctions to visit South Africa when I was at teaching college - America. They weren't too bad. George Benson also defied sanctions and he was good! When I was in NZ, saw mostly Kiwi Bands, but did see Jimmy Barnes and Ian Tucker who used to be with the Aussie band Cold Chisel, and I saw Kevin Bloody Wilson who was frigging hilarious. never laughed so much my entire life!
My first show was Uriah Heep back in 1977, and Ive been to more shows than I can count since. Saw Stevie Ray Vaughn back in 86, unbelievable show. Ive seen Neil Young about a half dozen times, one of his best ones though was back in 2000, with Crosby, Stills, & Nash. Always wished I could have seen Frank Zappa. Ive heard the concert DVD his son Dweezil put out is pretty good. Ill have to check that out.
I think my favourite concert must have been..... westlife (:
Dont ask why it just it (:
Eric Clapton and Muddy Waters in 1979. I did not know who Muddy Waters was at the time; I was a stupid young punk.
Without a doubt..
the one and only....
ALICE COOPER, "Welcome to My Nightmare"
in 1975 at Hirsch Coliseum in Shreveport, La.
Awesome!!!! A real show!
Must mention the opening act: Suzi Quatro!
Elton John and Billy Joel together along with all the Sixty musicians together.
I've only been to three concerts. Sad ain't it? lol but my favorite was Lifehouse definitely. The other two I saw was Kenny Chesney back when I hated country...like it now....and The Bacon Brothers. Yep Kevin Bacon and his brother and their band.
I have not been to many concerts, but my favorite one so far would be trans-siberian orchestra. My boyfriend took me on december 22nd the day after my birthday! It was amazing to watch them.
As I spent my life around music, I cannot honestly recall the first concert or otherwise musical performance I had attended. I barely even remember the first recital I ever played. That being said, my favorite concert by far had to be the Chieftains at the IF Civic Auditorium.
I am not at all biased by the fact that four of my students got to perform with them. Not one bit.
Valerie F you are too funny. I saw the Chieftains also and loved them. Also have you seen Natalie McMaster? That was another great one.
So -- most amazing concert moment for me? Elton John Concert in Madison Square Garden. Playing "Lucy In the Sky with Diamonds" and JOHN LENNON came out on stage.
I thought I had died and gone to LSD heaven
I can only imagine MM. Must have been amazing Sheryl Crow had Eric Clapton come out
The last Concert I attended was George Benson but my favourites would be Kylie Minogue and Beyonce. Those Diva's put on very entertaining shows.
I really liked NKOTB, Boyz II Men and N'Sync rockapalooza extravaganza.
Neil Young came to Ireland a few months ago, and played at Malahide just near where we live he was brilliant...
Saw U.2. about a month ago brilliant also
Joan Armatrading has got to be my favourite in concert though
JUST REMEMBERED...... saw Diana Ross lately she is just brilliant also
Jealous of Suffi seeing David Bowie that would be my dream
love many of them ...but i definitely love the concert of "the bread" and "journey" because of their songs..
I think its just "bread". I saw journey at a concert right by the water... nothing better than that and "lights"
bon jovi at giant stadium (i think that was in 2007), Motley Crue (summer of 08) and Nkotb (june of 09) Ive been to tons but those might be my top three.
Lynyrd Skynyrd 1976 Original Band members In Atlanta live at the fox Its where they recorded the most famous version of Freebird!
AC/DC 3 times in the 80's

What's the best concert you've ever been to?
by sam209 6 years ago
Can anyone remember the best concert they've ever attended? In 1997 I saw The Rolling Stones for the first time and it still ranks as my favorite concert! KISS would run a close second!
by Mr. Phantasm 3 years ago
I think they're the two greatest bands in history, but only one can be the best. In my opinion, the Beatles were better. They evolved so far in such a short amount of time, and so much of their music paved the way for bands that came years after them. Everyone from Lynyrd Skynyrd...

Is it rude to sing along at concerts?My opinion: absolutely, yes, it's beyond rude! It's downright obnoxious! But I recently came across a forum of people who feel the opposite, so now I'm curious about the general opinion.

Do you think Jethro Tull and the Moody Blues should be in he R&R Hall of Fame?Are there rock artists and bands that you feel have been overlooked as candidate for the Rock &Roll Hall of Fame?
