NFT: Favorite Concerts you have attended

John In CO : 2/10/2019 5:39 pm
I was cleaning out my garage this morning and came across my box of old sports/concert tickets. I had forgotten I kept all this crap. Started going through it and a lot of memories came back, especially with the concerts. Thought this might be a fun topic here. What are some of your favorite concert experiences? Here are some of mine..

US Festival Mem Day Weekend 1983 Glen Helen Park, San Bernardino CA. Too many bands to mention all of them, but Bowie,U2,Ozzy,Motley Crue, Priest,The Clash, Van Halen (for the wrong reasons) and the Scorpions stood out. 3 days. Slept one night on a sidewalk and the next in a parking lot. Totally Awesome!

REM/Dream Syndicate 6/27/84 The Music Hall, Seattle. First time I saw REM. Reckoning tour. They werent very well known at the time. I remember the theatre marquee showed that "RAM" would be appearing that evening.

Midnight Oil/House of Freaks 6/16/88 Visage, Orlando FL. Performance wise, this may be my favorite. Man, Midnight Oil tore that little piece of crap ex-warehouse apart that night. Peter Garrett...quite a presence on stage. A good friend of mine who at that point I had not met was at that show. We still talk about how great it was. And House of Freaks werent bad either, guy on guitar, guy on drums,,,thats it.

Social Distortion 5/24/92 The Edge, Orlando FL
Mike Ness comes this close to kicking the crap out of an audience member. Which made perfect sense. Great show.

Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers, Ramones, Stray Cats, Modern English, Bow Wow Wow 4/23/83 San Diego Stadium
Great lineup...great show, great memories, both the music and the atmosphere. The night I became a Stray Cats fan.

Red Hot Chili Peppers,†Ministry,†Ice Cube,†Soundgarden,†The Jesus and Mary Chain,†Pearl Jam,†Lush. 8/23/92 Central Florida Fairgrounds
Lollapalooza. Look at where Pearl Jam is in the lineup:). HOT day. Liked every band here. I think at that point Ministry may have been the loudest band I ever heard.

The Cure 6/6/92 Jacksonville Coliseum...only concert ive ever been to where the band played EVERY single song I wanted to hear. Every one. Still remember all the goth girls in their little huddles crying after the show. they were in heaven:)

Beastie Boys/Rollins Band/Cypress Hill 11/13/92 The Edge Orlando FL...Best memory of this one...Cypress Hill was in a van adjacent to the stage prior to their performance. Everyone is waiting for the show to start. Doors of the van open, and here comes Cypress Hill, surrounded by a huge plume of smoke:). Think Spicoli getting out of the van in Fast Times, but x2. Another really fun show.

But on July 4, 2000 at Ravens Stadium I saw them with System of a Down, Powerman 5000 and Korn.

What a fucking show.
I've seen hundreds of concerts. Even more bands as

I loved that band, in my top 5 all time. But I only got the chance to see them once in concert. And it was in a half empty arena when they were opening for Tom Petty. Not the ideal setting to catch them. I was really happy that they put out that live album/cd (or whatever you call what is on streaming services) a few years ago. Its really good.

amd Ive seen some incredible shows, spent much of my 20s following My Morning Jacket around and those were some amazing times with a revolving cast of about 20 people I got to know really well.

But my gut reaction to the question brings up 2 shows, Dr. Dog at King Fu Necktie in Philly around 2010 is the first. It was a "secret show" billed under a fake name (Meth Beach, the name of their studio at the time) that was limited to 50 or so tickets. So everyone there was a diehard and the setlist was lots of old songs not in regular rotation.

The second is J. Roddy Walston and the Busoness at a little club in Baltimore called Ottobar. Baltimore was their homebase at the time, it was my first time seeing them just after their sefond album came out, and they were just phenomenal. Just pure piano driven rock and roll, beer throwing, band in the crowd, audience on stage mayhem. I dont know that ive ever had more fun at a show. If you ever get a chance to see those guys do yourself a favor and check them out.


Were you at the Northampton show??? Epic n religious!!! Saw them later that year in Clifton Park n the show was way to polished n too heavy on reverb vocals!!! After the Northampton show I called their publicist or agent n told them it was incredible n he told me he had a similar experience at a Radiohead show n thatís who he got in the business...
1987 Garden State Arts Center

Marshall Tucker Band, Charlie Daniels Band and The Outlaws. Wrote on my ticket "34 minutes" after timing Green Grass and High tides jam. Epic.

Piece of Mind Tour

We were taking the train in from NJ. It was full of Maiden fans. People were tearing up the train, shooting off fire extinguishers and shit, fights all around. I was about 14 and scared shitless. By the time we got into aPenn station cops were grabbing everyone who looked like they were going to the concert. It was a mad dash to escape and get up stairs.

The concert was incredible too. 😀

Ha you are about the same age as me, I went to MSG for that Piece of Mind tour. Actually I saw them with Judas Priest probably 6 times... lol. That was a great show. Also MSG, Van Halen 1984 tour. I think to this day that is still the best concert I have ever been too (and I been to a few... LOL).

Also, to follow up on the spice girls Anak... I took my kids to see Hannah Montana. It was freaking great... they did her right with that backing band, they were REALLY good.

I wasn't but that era, 04-12, was when I was seeing them a lot. 60 some times total. Hard to pick a favorite. The Bonnaroo 2008 marathon double set was ridiculous. They always seemed to really bring it at Merriweather Post Pavillion outside Baltimore. Louisville Waterfront Park in 08 was a memorable one. As was their set there during Forecastle Festival (and the after party with Preservation Hall on the Belle of Louisville later that night) in 2012. Bunch of us rented an apartment in NYC for a week when they did the residency at Terminal 5. That whole week was just...I don't even know. It was exhausting, I know that.

That was the week of my birthday those terminal 5 shows n drove down from Albany!!! Awesome!!! Another highlight was the Americana show w wilco n bob dylan, who is always nothing but awful w his retooling, but the highlight was Wilco n my morning jacket w Garth n Iím screaming for chest fever, my favorite band song n it was other worldly, a great nite at spac!!!
Nice, that T5 week really was something else.  
j_rud : 2/10/2019 9:04 pm : link
On Wednesday, the off night, Carl did a solo show at Joe's Pub that was really cool. Very intimate, literally inches from the stage, and the whole band minus Jim sat in with him. Got to hang out with them and Johnny Quaid, the original guitarist, after the show at the bar. That honestly may have been the highlight of the week for me.

Wilco is another favorite so Americanarama was pretty cool too.
I saw Nirvana at Roseland Ballroom

In NYC. 1993
I've seen a bunch of good concerts  
robbieballs2003 : 2/10/2019 9:40 pm : link
Metallica
GNR
Axl with other members
Beastie Boys
Rage Against The Machine
Tom Petty
Tool
Motley Crue
Poison
Scorpions
Bruce
Many others

Axl always puts on an amazing show and they are probably my most memorable. I am not a huge Bruce fan but he puts on a great show. Metallica was really cool at the old Giants Stadium. Tool was very unique.

But I have mentioned this numerous and I will again, Steel Panther is amazing. My brother first told me about them and got tickets. He brought his wife and I brought my wife. I played a couple of songs for my wife and she laughed. Then we went to thw concert. When we left she was amazed at how good they really are. They do not take themselves serious and say they should have been great in the 80s. But they really are talented. I have seen them 3 times live and they never disappoint. I have brought many people with me to those 3 concerts and even though they didn't know any of their songs when they left every single person loved it. They aren't for everybody because they are extremely inappropriate.
Pink Floyd - The Wall

Aerosmith at the War Memorial (first concert I ever went to, mid-70's). Dad was Monroe County Sheriff and got me backstage passes. I thought that means I just got to pick my seat out early..LOL.

Rolling Stones, Journey, Lynard Skynard, Atlanta Rhythm Section at Rich Stadium in Buffalo. Stones sucked but the other three rocked.

Tracy Chapman at Eastman School of Music

Supertramp before they got famous in Kingston, Ontario at a bar
Been to a hundred concerts  
mavric : 2/11/2019 8:56 am : link
Most memorable: Aerosmith, Elton John, Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers, Neil Young.

First band I ever saw live was at the Binghamton Arena called "Humble Pie" lead by a teenager named Peter Frampton.

One interesting one happened in the 80's when I was walking along the beach in Ocean City, MD and saw they were building a stage on the beach. It was a free concert starring the Beach Boys with Starship as the undercard.
Been to many memorable concerts...  
Bill in Del : 2/11/2019 9:13 am : link
from the late 70's, ELP at MSG up till recent, Steve Hackett at the Scottish Rite in South Jersey and a whole bunch in between.

But the most memorable and all time favorite was
Peter Gabriel Secret World Live with Paula Cole.

Saw the show in DC with some friends and had to take my wife to see it in Philly a few a days later. She normally doesn't care much for concerts but loved this one.

Bruce Springsteen at the Philly Spectrum the night Lennon was killed

but the one that always comes to mind is The Clash at Bonds.
U2 at the Ritz in NYC on St Paddy's Day 1982.  
Section331 : 2/11/2019 9:42 am : link
They had an Irish bagpipe quartet as the warmup, and Bono came out and marched with them for their last piece.

REM at Fountain Casino in Aug '83 ($6 tickets!) on their Murmer tour.

Replacements at the Ritz in 1985. What a crazy show. Bob Stinson dove into the mosh pit and broke his hand, but kept on playing.

Yes in the round at MSG in 1977 (my first concert).

Wilco's all acoustic show at their Mass MOCA festival in 2015.

Crowded House at the Beacon for their Woodface tour in 1991, right before Tim Finn left the band.

Supertramp at the RAC at Rutgers for their Breakfast in America tour, 1979.
REM

Toad's Place 1983 comes immediately to mind.

Named Later : 2/11/2019 10:07 am : link
Many, many good ones -- from the first one to the last.

Among the first was Led Zep at the Asbury Park Convention Hall on Woodstock weekend. Peter Grant wouldn't let them play Woodstock unless they got top billing. So they brought their entire big venue stage rig to the little 1500 seat room on the boardwalk. They raised the roof that night.

Also saw Bruce at Monmouth College (not University yet). I think it was during his Dr Zoom phase. We were in the first row, actually leaning on the stage,watching Tinker diddling with the dials. That's when I learned what a Fender Telecaster could do in the right hands.

The most recent show was Harry Connick Jr at the Gaillard Center in Charleston SC. Harry's Big Band doing their Celebration of New Orleans Music. A lady in the high-dollar front row seats bought a round of beers for the 12-piece band. In return for her Charleston Hospitality, Harry sat next to her and crooned "One Fine Fine Thing" into her ear as she fanned away her Hot Flashes with the program.

Flock of Seagulls...  
BamaBlue : 2/11/2019 10:10 am : link
very small venue in Fayetteville, NC in 1985 was the most fun. It was the 80's and this was pretty cool in the day.

A close second was Jimmy Buffet in Nashville, 2015; Kenny Chesney made a guest appearance and sang with Jimmy.
Here's a few  
Jeever : 2/11/2019 10:22 am : link
Yes opening for Jethro Tull at the Alexandria Roller Rink.

The Laurel Pop Festival (2 days: Led Zeppelin, Johnny Winters, Jethro Tull, Al Kooper, Buddy Guy, Jeff Beck w/ Rod Stewart, Mothers of Invention, Ten Years After, Savoy Brown Blues Band, Guess Who, Sly and the Family Stone) tickets $4.95 per day.

Rolling Stones at RFK ($4 per ticket) w/ Martha Reeves and the Vandellas and Stevie Wonder as openers.

And a few more  
Jeever : 2/11/2019 10:29 am : link
Led Zeppelin at the Baltimore Civic Center (show was fantastic as well as the 5 encores.

Bob Seger System at the Vienna Community Center. Place held about 100 people and Pep Perrine was sporting a drum set with double base drums on the floor as well as overhead. They blew the windows out of the place. Bob Seger at his hard rock best. Check out "Mongrel" for a taste.
HOT FUCKING TUNA...  
x meadowlander : 2/11/2019 10:49 am : link
...Magic City Music Hall, Johnson City NY, 2006. Great, oversized barroom that was only open for a few years. I honestly wasn't expecting anything earth shattering. I'd seen Hot Tuna before, had seen Jorma solo. Always a great show - but that night - something in the air or something the band ate - after a sweet acoustic set with Jorma's great fingerpicking, Barry Middendorfs sweet mandolin picking and Jack Cassady's active bass playing, the old men shuffled offstage for a break, came back and played the best set of electric blues I've heard in my life. Cassady and Jorma on fire, absolutely inspired. Just freaking amazing, brought the house down.
I'm a Neil Young homer...  
x meadowlander : 2/11/2019 10:54 am : link
... I've seen him a bunch - my favorite was the 86' Rusted Out tour at MSG. Giant garage set, oversized washer and dryer, roadies dancing in rat costumes, motorized cockroaches roaming the stage.

Neil and Crazy Horse were as perfect as I've ever heard, Neil in fine voice, nice cameo's by Crosby and Nash.

Also worth noting was a great night in 92', an acoustic show at the Garden State Arts Center - an entire show he mostly let the crowd pick, took request after request, making for a fantastic set list of rare songs. Really intimate, really sweet.
Allmans Beacon, March 06'...  
x meadowlander : 2/11/2019 10:55 am : link
...another band I saw many times, this particular evening had multiple cameo's, including Peter Frampton. Allmans at their absolute finest, Derek Trucks escaping some other dimension because no human plays guitar that well. :)
Led Zeppelin

Opening nite 1975 & 77 at MSG just wow Tommy Bolin at the Bottom Line Lou Reed at the Bottom Line he came on at 2 am Staying UP was not a problem George Harrison at MSG & Van Halen Diver Down tour at MSG knew people & went to backstage party met the band & Eddies wife Val Great memories
George Thorogood and ZZ Top  
Buzzard64 : 2/11/2019 11:25 am : link
In Ottawa. George tore up the place and when ZZ Top hit the stage Billy Gibbons said " Now that's a tough act to follow." ZZ proceeded to play one of the best sets I ever saw.....and I have seen ZZ Top numerous times.
Late 70s  
Gman11 : 2/11/2019 2:28 pm : link
Alice Cooper and The Sweet.

Also, the first concert I took my daughter to was New Kids On The Block. Started a tradition that we go to at least one concert every year.

Younger daughter was into hair bands. Saw Cinderella, Dokken, Poison with front row "seats"
Tom Petty story...  
x meadowlander : 2/11/2019 3:00 pm : link
...saw Petty back in October, 91' at the Byrne across from Giants Stadium. I'd seen him 4 times before and was somewhat disappointed. Wasn't a great show, seemed to be in a hurry to get out of there.

Had front row seats a few days later to see him again, this time in the tiny Binghamton Veterans Arena. He opened the show playing "The Waiting" acoustic - the crowd pushed to the stage, and security got grabby, hands on fans, pushing them back.

Petty stopped playing.

Glared at security and yelled "YO, MAN, get your fucking hands off my fans!" - place went nuts, security personnel backed away - "They'll be good, they'll be good, you have my word!" - BIG push to the stage - "Now... y'all be good, OK?" - big laughs and he goes back into "The Waiting", halfway through, the full band kicks in ant THAT was an inspired show.

At the end of the night, after the encore, band leaves the stage, waving, Petty, last off, walking past his guitar rack... snags the last axe on it - Telecaster - and turns back to the crowd, starts strumming, loud, giant E chord - into the first verse of "I used to love her" by the Stones - I could see Stan Lynch off to the side, arms out "WTF" expression - he runs up, rest of the band follows.

House rocked.

A great end to a great show.

I had seen both bands countless times. Was it the best show Iíve ever seen? Nah. But it was the first BIG show I took my then 12 year old boys to. Seeing them with the ďhornsĒ in the air and banging their heads to Number of the Beast and Feat of the Dark was one of best nights of my life.

Aerosmithís Back In the Saddle Tour When Perry and Whitford rejoined the band. Just and awesome show. 1985 maybe?

Black Crowes/Metallica/Aerosmith in Rochester back in 89 or so. My three favorite bands at the time.
Radiohead at Lollapalooza in 2008

Massive Attack in 2008, My Morning Jacket in 2011, and most of all, Jeff Tweedy performing solo in Golden Gate Park in the late 2000's particularly and immediately come to mind for me.

I still laugh at Geddy introducing Jacob's Ladder on opening night of the R40 tour in Tulsa with a "and here's a song we've never played live before." The whole crowd is looking at each other like, um it's on a fucking live album isn't it?

He corrected himself the next night in Omaha.

Wow, how did you know about that? Even I almost forgot playing with Bettie Serveert.

No, the best parts of any show I played was watching the other bands. Technically, we opened for Radiohead at Lollapalooza in 2008 -- we were the very first band to play that day and had a great view of people storming through the gates to reserve good spots at the main stage.

First proper concert I went to as middle schooler -- Foo Fighters, Jawbreaker, and Ween -- at the old Palladium on Sunset.

I got my butt handed to me in the mosh pit and had to find my shoes after the show was over.

Massive Attack in 2008, My Morning Jacket in 2011, and most of all, Jeff Tweedy performing solo in Golden Gate Park in the late 2000's particularly and immediately come to mind for me.



Not your band opening for Bettie servers?!?!?!



Wow, how did you know about that? Even I almost forgot playing with Bettie Serveert.

No, the best parts of any show I played was watching the other bands. Technically, we opened for Radiohead at Lollapalooza in 2008 -- we were the very first band to play that day and had a great view of people storming through the gates to reserve good spots at the main stage.


Lol!!! There was another music/concert thread were I mentioned them as a favorite band or show n u replied that u had opened up for them once!!! Lifeís in the details...
