Wow, some killer shows listed. Here are my top five(very hard to narrow this list down) from this thread that I am jealous of and would kill to have been there: 1. Jane's Addiction - (opening for Love and Rockets!)-Wiltern Theatre 2. Red Hot Chili Peppers, Nirvana, Pearl Jam - Cow Palace 12.31.91 3. Pink Floyd's last tour @ Oakland Stadium in '93 4. I went to see Helmet, the Rollins Band, and the Beastie Boys on top of a parking garage in Pontiac in the late 90's, I had a head full of acid and a preacher threw his bible at me when we were walking up the steps to the show. 5. Underworld at the Manchester Academy 96 Nothing beats seeing good live music. It can be a life changing event if done right. You guys should look into hitting up the numerous festivals where you can see tons of great bands all in one weekend. The Coachella festival is heaven on earth (saw NIN and Tool close the fest at night in the middle of the desert). Lollapalooza is kicking ass again in Chicago, and Bonnaroo rips down south.

Bungle on the Disco Volante tour in about 95/96 Tool on the Lateralus tour Pantera on the back of Far Beyond Driven was grouse. But the best festival (overall best quality in a short space of time) was an Aussie one-off festival called Alien Nation in 1995. In one day I saw NIN, Faith No More, Pennywise, Therapy, Primus, Tool and Supergroove (kiwi funk band that has since split but was still great). Was dialled on Acid too. Fantastic, fantastic day.

you guys probably won't believe this but one of the best concerts i have been to is the brian setzer orchestra. brian and the band kicked azz. also, for vintage van halen fan, the atomic punks gives the best shows around. i love hearing the vintage VH songs live. and if you close your eyes, you'd swear they were the real thing...

Just for giggles..SRV at the Spectrum in Montreal for $2.98. Still have the ticket stub. Actually have most of my ticket stubs. And because it always upsets someone, my first concert, Frank Zappa and Tom Waits at Place des Nations Montreal.

I've been fortunate enough to see Tool 6 tiems, the best was in '96 I believe december, right after Aenima came out, there is no band that is better live. They are not all that active on stage (outside of maynard) but the music itself is just ridiculous. This is with pushit live coming out which just sucks you in. If they ever found a good opening band, i'd follow those fuckers around the country, the melvins are horrible sepultura/helmet/ministry at the universal ampitheatre, sepultura was insane, helmet was mediocre but ministry was just awesome. One more was Ned's atomic dustbin at the hollywood palladium in 92'ish, they are crazy live, great show. I got kicked out 2/3 of the way through but it was awesome for those who saw stp, jane's and pennywise I am quite jealous

Jazz - Joshua Redman at UTenn's Jazz theater.  Cost me $3  for third row right.  2.5 hr concert that was like one sublime breath.  When the show was over, I didn't realize how much time had gone by.

U2 put on a helluva show a couple years ago in Atlanta.  A Perfect Circle is always good.

Like around 96 or so I saw Korn and Marilyn Manson open for Danzig (4P tour) at a small club.  That was one helluva good show.

"But I have to say my favorite band to see live to this day is Primus." There is no denying the fun that Primus brings to a concert.
