Stones, Heart and George Thoroghgood in the early 80s. The Stones played all their great 60s and 70s stuff.

Guns N' Roses/Metallica/Faith No More at Giants Stadium in 1992. The Lollapalooza '92 show: Lush, Pearl Jam, Ice Cube, Soundgarden, Jesus and Mary Chain, Ministry, Chilipeppers (best of them was the Chilis) Nirvana at American University in fall '93 with the Breeders and Half Japanese. B.B. King with Buddy Guy and Eric Johnson in '93 at Great Woods. There was a band with Junior Wells, Koko Taylor and some other blues greats that opened that was great as well. Aerosmith with the Bosstones on New Years Eve at Boston Garden 93/94. I also saw an awesome Aerosmith show in 2001 at Nissan Pavilian in Va. where halfway through, they came out to a little stage on the lawn and played their best of the old songs including "Dream On" right there. Awesome for those of us on the lawn; must of sucked for thus who sprung for the pricy seated tix. James Brown at the Harborlights in Boston in '94. Pink Floyd at the old Foxboro Stadium in '94. Evan Dando w/ Ben Kweller at Iota in Arlington, Va (2002 I think?). -- If you want to spread the word about your fight school or fighting career, check out my new blog: http://blog.myspace.com/mmamedia

Saw Radiohead twice, once in Cleveland and once in NYC. Saw Muse at a tiny little club in Cincinnati just as they were starting to get airplay here in the states. But my all-time favorite concert was Little River Band at the 1984 Ohio State Fair.

"deftones who sounded terrible" --- they opened for Godsmack at my fav concert, summer 2002 Minneapolis. Deftones sound alright in their recordings but the singer live sounded like some holocaust torture victim. Godsmack blew me away. Not my favorite band but definitely favorite show.

Saw Lit at the Engine Room in Houston a few years back. They were opened by the great Butch Walker. That guy rocks. Saw They Might Be Giants at the Meridian. Like the Engine Room, you get to stand right up next to the stage if you get there early enough. Awesome show. Saw Prince at the American Airlines center in Dallas. Badass show. Saw Tamar (featuring Prince) at Warehouse Live in Houston, and again, got right next to the stage. Badass show. Best show ever though, Matchbox 20. Huge venue, 7th row seats.

I've seen thousands of bands, some great ones at small punk places in NYC and NJ like CBs, Rock Hotel, Pyramid, A7, Pipeline, City Gardens, Maxwells, ect. Some of the best live ones were D.O.A., Dead Kennedys, X, Kraut, Bad Brains, Circle Jerks, Angry Samoans, Ramones, Hard-ons, Adrenalin OD, I could just keep going. BEST live band ever though was the CLASH. and best ever show (I saw them 8 times) was in '82 I think, it was part of a three night stand on The Pier, in the Hudson next to the Intrepid Aircraft Carrier in a wild fucking lightning storm. The intrepid got hit multiple times, I don't know how they didn't shut it down, but the Clash were howling louder than the wind, just like a force of nature. OUTSTANDING. Best hardcore show may have been Reagan Youth, Adrenalin OD, DOA and Dead Kennedys at The World on the Lower East Side.

The best was U2 doing the second warm up date for their Zoo Tour in 1992 Miami Arena. I wasn't even realy a fan but the hair on back of my neck stood up at least twice during the show. It was awesome.

Nine Inch Nails playing at the Kool Haus, Toronto, 2005. The venue could maybe hold about 4000 people, and I was 30 feet from the stage. Sweat was dripping off the ceilings. Ridiculous show.

BTW there is a torrent of the audio of that Clash show, including the sound check called "Singing In The Rain"; well worth the download. Dimeadozen is a legal torrent site - all uncopyrighted material.

Aside from those I've already mentioned, I've seen The Allman Brothers probably 5 times in the 1970's Bruce Springsteen in the mid 70's at local Jersey venues - Stone Pony, Seton Hall University, Palladium in NYC, Bottom Line NYC, and in MSG, The Spectrum and Giant Stadium. Saw Judas Priest and AC DC at Giant Stadium. K.K.Downing fell off the stage at this show and fractured his wrist. Saw The Eagles original Hotel California Tour. Saw The Police original Synchronicity Tour Shea Stadium. Saw Queen at the Capitol Theater in Passaic NJ - 1975 I've seen the Grateful Dead several times. Saw Bob Dylan with Mick Ronson 1979. Saw Eric Clapton with B.B. King at Roosevelt Stadium in NJ 1978. and others......

^^^ That sounds awesome. I forgot to include seeing him play acoustic at an anti-war rally in DC in 2005.

Radiohead at the Preston Polly 95 PWEI at the Hatfield Forum c.93 The Prodigy supporting Oasis at Knebworth(before anyone had heard of the Prodigy, totally won a hostile crowd over) Muse were pretty good live as well. Underworld at the Manchester Academy 96 (They had to be dragged off stage by the organisers because they had over-run their set by about 40 minutes and the council were threatening to cut the power)

Splinter...I saw the same NIN tour in ATL, about a 2500 person venue and it was fucking insane. That was by far the best show I have been to. I think the fact that it was a really energetic crowd, but everyone was so into the music (tix were really hard to get, I paid like 250 for mine) that there was no bullshit. Other really good shows were Rollins Band playing the songs of Black Flag from a few years ago, I saw Slayer on Thanksgiving night with Mastodon and Killswitch Engage...which was a great show...man, almost too many to mention.

Someone mentioned Dayglo Abortions, one of Canada's finest. I saw them a few times. Two shows standout: L7, Dayglos, Bad Religion at City Gardens. Raw Power, Dayglos, Gang Green at CBs. Both late 80s I think.

"Slayer in '86 on Reign in Blood tour" I caught a show on that tour. I got kicked in the back by a skinhead who was tripping on acid. Tom had to stop the set when he broke a bass string...he was pretty pissed.
