Kiss Alive tour in 1978. Judas Priest was supposed to back them up, but they couldn't make it. In their place was this new guy introduced as.....

"......Little Johnny Cougar!"

Machine Head/Megadeth (original line-up) at the old Soma in San Diego circa '98-99. Machine Head would have showed up any other band, but Megadeth is a machine live. System of a Down on Soma sidestage, opening for (hed)PE, lol. This was right when their first album came out, nobody knew who they were. There was maybe 80 people there. Slayer @ Ozzfest in San Bernadino, 40,000 people fighting each other while riot police shot tear gas into the crowd. Scariest moment of my life. Now ask me about the worst concerts I've ever seen, lol.

Here are my top 3

1. Metallica summer of '93.  Opening bands were Suicidal Tendencies and Danzig. Outdoor concert and it was raining.  35,000 people

2. REM in '95.  Opening band was Radiohead, concert was right before Radiohead blew up.

3. Metallica '98.  State Theater in Detroit.  Only 1,300 people.  I got to sit front row in VIP section and got free beer from Molson rep.

"1. Metallica summer of '93. Opening bands were Suicidal Tendencies and Danzig. Outdoor concert and it was raining. 35,000 people" I saw that tour...it was in '94, though. That was the year I was in Ohio.

you all reminded me of these top two on my list

Suicidal Tendencies @ old 9.30 club....I was young enough that I sholdn't have been there.

Metalica & Ozzy together,...again, I probly shouldn't have been there. Looking back I'm pretty sure I should have stayed home and did my homework those two nights.

Bluedragon- I saw them in Worcester Mass with Live opening for them. Live absolutely sucked donkeyballs but that is to be expected. We were all the way in the back  which wasn't great but still well worth it.

Perry started with 3days and came out in a giant white gown that was flowing for about 10 feet around him in all directions. Suddenly the gown starts flowing higher and higher and all these half naked chicks come out from under the gown and continue dancing all around him for the remainder of the song.

The remainder of the concert these girls were positioned throught the stadium on giant boxes dancing and being all sexy. AWESOME!

Then about 2 hours in Perry says they are taking a little break. The lights go down and they leave the stage. 10 minutes later, lights come up on a tiny little stage at the very back of the stadium litterally directly beneath us. The boys come out and do a 60 minute acoustic set with Navarro playing a 12 string and starting with Jane Says. We were facking front row!!

They went back to main stage for almost another hour after that. Phenomonal show!! WE were completely stoked.
