What's the most memorable concert you've ever attended...
It was concert of Tarja Turunen in Warsaw at the beginning of this year. The atmosphere was amazing and her performace was the best of the 3 times I saw her.
Oh thats easy my friend.. It was NEIL DIAMOND.. I was in love!!!lol...Linda you are so good at writing about these Stars will you write one about him for me? Unless you have already done it?
Neil Diamond. Good idea! I'll add him to my list Deb!
Oh I WOULD LOVE IT THANKS!!
The Go-Gos at The Lyceum in London, November 1982 - I drove down there to see it and they were amazing - then they started taking drugs and lost their way, shame!
Queen at Edinburgh Ingleston Hall, June 1982 - Freddie was just amazing at this concert. Loved it )
Hall and Oates in Newcastle upon Tyne - more like being at a party than a concert.
Three concert memories. Way to go Julie!
The Beach Boys in Brighton in the 70s; brilliant reproduction of all the effects - it was astounding.
That is closely followed by my granddaughter's participation in her area school choirs' concert; a joyous and uplifting occasion.
Sounds like an amazing concert! Thanks for sharing.
Pearl Jam at the Virginia Beach Amphitheater several years ago. Beautiful evening for an outdoor concert under a huge full moon!! And of course, the band was AWESOME! An absolutely perfect night!!
"TnT'...."The Temptations and The Four Tops"........1984 at Chautauqua Institute. The original artists of '60's Soul and Rock......Top Hits, "My Girl," "Bernadette," ""Can't Help Myself," "I Wish It Would Rain,"........"Reach Out," "Shadows of Love,".............FANTASTIC CONCERT!!! Every Baby Boomer in the Tri-State area was there!!!
N*SYNC, 5th grade, Tampa. Still, to this day, the best day of my life! I was the envy of every girl in my class for quite some time.
I bet you were the envy! BSB, NSync, Brit, Christina...That was some fun pop music!
Eminem and Jay-Z at Yankee stadium. Hands down one of the best days of my life. I had such a great time with my friends.
Eminem...you lucky man! Jay-Z is alright too.
It was probably a concert with Shania Twain in Stockholm, Sweden in 2004. Great singer, wonderful audience and it was in my favourite city. This is a great question, Linda.
My first Bruce Springsteen concert. My friend and I had seats behind the stage but he kept turning around. It was the closest I've ever been to a stage. The second was just as good but I was a lot further away By far the best concerts ever...and the longest.
Seats "behind" Bruce were probably just as good!
Yes, we had a very nice view
I have to say mine is Boys II Men is my top pick. They came to UNC in 2009 for Spring Fest and all the students got to see them for $1! I went with my friends and we spent all night singing along and slow jamming at the Dean Dome. Very few things compare to hearing End of the Road live.
Second is Kanye West. This was before his mom died so he was still cray but not over the top cray-right after his second album got big and won Grammys- I was a senior in high school. He didn't go on stage until we got loud enough for him. Once he did come out he did well.
I've also seen Temptations, Four Tops, and Aretha Franklin as a kid but I only remember vague details. I'd love to see a whole lot of other people while I can. Awesome question!
Rock on Alecia! That's a lot of great concerts!
Every year I go to Coachella. To see so many bands in just three days is overwhelmingly wonderful.
Its hard to pick a favorite because I love so many of them - but seeing The Shins at outside lands or Radiohead at Coachella or Matt and Kim at the Music Box were pretty rememberable.
My first Rolling Stones concert in '82. I can still remember how excited I was to see these guys. I can still see what they were wearing and most of the songs they sang.
It would have to be when I saw Pink in Nottingham England. I went with my daughter, it was a girl's night out. Pink was fantastic! She is so athletic, and until then I never gave her voice the credit it was due. She sang a Janis Joplin song and I thought, 'Wow'.
It is easy to think that modern singers don't have the staying power or the tenacity of singers of a bygone era but there are some gems out there and Pink is definitely, in my opinion, a diamond. Rock hard and brilliant.
P!NK is a gift that keeps on giving. She just keeps getting better. Awesome memory!
We used to have loads of bands come to the large town hall in the next town to us. My favorites have to be Billy Idol, because he was brilliant and also we used to drink with him too, and suzie and the banshees!
Okay, I'm telling on myself here. Let's keep this between friends!
In 1973, I was waiting to get in to a 7 hour concert in Indianapolis. It had ELF, Trapeze, Electric Light Orchestra, Dr. Hook & the Medicine Show, Dr. John, and was headlined by Chuck Berry. As the festival seating crowd rushed the door, a guy handed me a winebag out of the blue, telling me not to worry, it was only Coke! (The drinkable kind) I had taken three girls to this show (a whole other story), and bought them cokes inside, while I drank the wine bag dry. A couple of hours into the concert, I was out of it. The girls told me they had never seen anyone jump so high as I had been able to grab one of the feathers out of Dr. John's junkanoo headdress when he leaned over the audience! Later, as I'm lying in the floor with my head on one of their laps, this guy comes up and asks if we've got anything left in the wine bag. When I told him I had drank it all, he goes, "Oh, wow man, that had 4 hits of 4 way windowpane in it!" (the equivalent of 16 hits of acid!) Somehow, I managed to drive everyone home that night, and watch a great sunrise the next day. But, I didn't inhale anything! I was a good boy!
Rich, What a hoot!! You should create a hub out of this evening. "Just Do It"
It was a free concert at Elysian Park in LA. It was the Moody Blues, Jefferson Airplane and Janis Joplin. It was 1969.
Must have been fantastic! Three of my all time favorites! I'm jealous... and... you remember it!
Awesome Sherry! Must have been one heck of a concert and it was free!
I've been to a lot of wonderful concerts since then, but that was one of my first it was and truly memorable.
My first concert was Randy Travis at Renfro Valley Ky in 2001 front row seats and he signed the Cd I had of his first Gospel one.I only live 2 miles from Renfro Valley home for country music..But the one I will remember till I leave this world was my Man Keith Urban in 2009 at Freedom Hall in Louisville Ky..I won tickets in facebook. When we got there went to the ticket office to get them and the lady keep smiling and said have a good time I thought that was a little weird. Well I had no idea what seats we had because I had never been in a huge arena so the girl that my hubby and I went with said let me see them and she went wild took me to the map on the wall and showed me where they were at. Front row on the floor one step and I was at the cat walk..Pat Green opened for him he was okay but I was dieing to see Keith!!It was his Defying Gravity tour when the place went dark and I heard his voice that was it I never set down clapped sang every song..That night is burned in my mind if I never get a chance to see him again I was blessed to see him. For 2 weeks after the show I could not talk I had lost my voice from Defying Gravity with him it was so worth it..Thanks Linda for letting me tell my story!! I Love KU!!!
Now yours is the most memorable concert memory! WOW! I bet you had the time of your life. I would also carry that memory forever. The time him and I shook hands is memorable. I also seen him and Pat Green on tour. Defying Gravity!
Thank you so much Linda for picking mine as the best answer!! Iam Blessed by you!! We LOVE KU!!
My most memorable concert was going to see MC Hammer in Columbia, SC with my cousins back some years ago ) and then a most recent concert was country singer Eric Church. There have been a number of gospel artists who I've had the pleasure of seeing in concert - too many to name.
As you can see probably tell from my answer, I love many types of music so if I have to opportunity to see some of my favorite artists in concert then I will be there.
From MC Hammer to Eric Church, you do like a wide variety of music. I also do. I haven't seen Eric yet in concert, but I'd like to.
A few years ago I went to see Cold play with my sister. The band was incredible and not just their music. They had cancelled a few times and to make up for it everyone received a free CD of their live music. It was a great mix. Around that time Micheal Jackson had just died and the band did a tribute. The band disappeared for awhile then showed up in the center of the crowd to preformed Billy Jean. I never thought Cold play, no offense, could "pull it off" but it was amazing. Then lead singer Chris Martin dedicated 'Fix You' to the audience and asked us to sing it with him. The sound of everyone singing the song together, knowing every word, was such a moving experience. I held in some tears, good thing it was dark out.
Sounds amazingly awesome Cara! Thank you for sharing!
Billy Joel at the Nassau LI Coliseum in the early 1990s. The man is a Showman.
I agree about Billy. I've been to the Nassau Coliseum many times when I lived on LI. My first concert there was Kenny Rogers in the early 80's. I also went to many NY Islander games, when they were the Stanley Cup champs.
If I could remember them, they probably weren't memorable! Seriously, though, off all the ones I have seen, I gotta say seeing Ray Charles with my father-in-law was great...it was the company of both men that made it so good.
John Mayer at the Frank Erwin Center in Austin, TX. We had center stage, 6th row tickets. I will never forget it!
I would have to say my most memorable concert that I have ever attended was Nsync. I remember my mom coming to pick me up from school and making a surprise of out it. I kept asking her where we were going, but she would not tell me. I remember having floor seats and I could see everything. That is something that I will never forget.
This is a tricky one, as I have been to a few, but I think my absolute favourite was seeing Simply Red on their Farewell tour in 2010 at Nottingham Arena. They were amazing, and Mick Hucknall is better live than recorded. We were about 10 rows from the front, and this was mine and my hubby's 1st wedding anniversary present to ourselves. We had both come down with horrendous colds, and felt fairly rough, but it was still brilliant!!
Duke Ellington, Paris, 1963. I rest my case
One of them was when I saw the Beachboys in Liverpool Empire Theatre in 1980,unforgetable...
Leon Russell , I love him beyond words. I want to see him as much as I can he's 72 not too well so I'm going to go wherever he is I can get to.

What's the biggest event you've ever attended?It doesn't have to be "big" as in number, like a Beth Moore seminar I attended with 11,000+. It could be favorite event - like a concert or a child's graduation.

I'm 57 now, which means I was 13 years old in 1967 when I went to my 1st concert - pretty hard to beat The Temptations in 1967, still with David Ruffin, as the best 1st concert experience you could have.
