Richard Thompson. I wanted to throw my guitars away afterwords.
I'm partial to my beloved classic metal bands and my instinct wanted to go with Iron Maiden on this one....but instead I'm going with Rush. Such a damn talented group. Not only do they sound great but they would give you your money's worth like few bands did. Rarely an opener....typically two full sets even up to their final days on the road.
Neil Peart is a god.
We could create a whole thread with just Neil Peart memes.
Moody Blues, back in 74.
Ok I'm now highly envious. :)
B.B. King! Tool was outstanding, amazing stage show as well. Ozzy Osbourne and Rob Zombie were rather impressive, especially given Ozzy's age.
Rob Zombie is great live. I've been lucky enough to see him in a smaller sized venue a couple of times now and damn was it a fun show both times.
I was pleasantly surprised. It didn't actually go for him, but he put on a helluva show.
I've now been to two Zombie Shows. Amazing!
It's a 3 way tie. ZZ Top, Dio, and Iron Maiden all had amazing night when I went to see them.
My all time favorite show was back in the Summer of 2003 when I saw Iron Maiden with openers Dio and Motorhead. Such an amazing show.
I saw Iron Maiden back in 97. Hell of a show.
Trombone Shorty, David Bryne sounds just like his cds, Keb Mo is also great live.
Josh Groban, Celine
Hanson or Panic at the Disco.
Maynard. Tool. Lateralus tour.
That would be a tossup between Three Dog Night and Electric Light Orchestra. The obvious superior singing talent of Chuck Negron should outweigh the outstanding leading edge sounds of the ELO band, but the light show they displayed made their concert a visual delight as well as an audio one.
