Best. Concert. Ever

   Discussion: Best. Concert. Ever
Will work for anime · 11 years, 6 months ago

So what has been the absolute bestest, most rock out loud (or not), jaw-dropping, amazing concert you have ever been too?

Gordondon son of Ethelred Back · 11 years, 6 months ago
I don't know but I know if it is the best they played Fell In Love.
Paul D. Beasi Back · 11 years, 6 months ago
Peter Gabriel - Growing Up Tour, Nov 2002 at the former Fleet Center in Boston

Monkees -- cincinnati OH July 1987 - Weird Al opened for them.

The Rolling Stones October 1997 Buffalo NY

Depends. :)

Spectacle and emotional resonance-wise...Paul McCartney, sometime in July, 1990. I have the ticket somewhere but the date isn't in my spreadsheet. :)  But it was my first real concert...I'd been a Beatles fan for ages and I begged my dad to take me to this (I was 13) and he did and I was in heaven.

The Chia Pets Plus Dave covers show with Fru also stands out.

OOoh and the Peter Mulvey campfire show. That gets props for just plain uniqueness in my concert experiences.

Paul D. Beasi Back · 11 years, 6 months ago
The campfire show was great. Nate and I have plans to get him for a house concert, maybe we can figure out something unique to top it. ;)

trashcan fire!

There was a fire in a trashcan at school last week. It sucked, 2 minutes before dismissal on friday afternoon, and we all had to go out and wait for like... firetrucks and stuff before we could go home.
*joolee* Back · 11 years, 6 months ago
Ahh, reminds me of the stink bombs of yesteryears...
caroline: tired. Back · 11 years, 6 months ago
Yeah, we've got those too. :)
Phoenix Back · 11 years, 6 months ago
Talking about stinkbombs...

Our chemistry teacher in high school wanted to show us (in 11th grade I think) the effect of laughing gas but apparently she had an off day (and I shit you not) filled the whole class room with laughing gas.
Unlike my classmates i found that totally funny :D
Paul D. Beasi Back · 11 years, 6 months ago
Well, we could try. What do you think, Nate? :)

I think I have to go with Goo Goo Dolls, summer 1999, Canandaigua, NY.

Although the time Guster opened for BNL was pretty damn awesome too. I wanna say that was....December 2000 or January 2001...? Buffalo, NY.

Ray Davies at the fringe fest in Edinburgh in 1995

Welllll....probably a three-way tie.

Rush, Great Woods, 6/23/1997. Second row center. Alex Lifeson flirted with my girlfriend. Teh radness.

Früvous, Iron Horse in Noho, 12/30/1999. I got up on stage!!!

Hum, The Highdive, Champaign, IL, 10/15/2005. Alomst everything I could have ever hoped for from Hum. (It was their first show in five years.) Totally worth the 1000-mile drive.

Honorable mention: Matthew Sweet, In Reverse tour, Boston. (Either Axis or Avalon, I forget which). It was really cool meeting him.

--The best ever was probably David Byrne with the Tosca Strings at Pageant in St. Louis, August 2001
runners-up
--first couple times I saw BNL on the Born on a Pirate Ship tour in 1996-7
--Belle & Sebastian at Congress Theater, Chicago 2002

I'd have to go with the Test for Echo tour by Rush. It was the inception of their 3 hour performance with no opening act and just a 15 min intermission between sets. Rush have always been an awesome arena band, and their prowess on their resepctive instruments is unquestioned. While nevering being big on crowd interaction, you can tell they love performing and it translates into the audience well.
Geoff Back · 11 years, 6 months ago
GWAH! As I've stated above, the T4e tour was one of my faves, and as a matter of fact, it was my first concert!
Starfox Back · 11 years, 6 months ago
My first concert was Counterparts. I got introduced to Rush (beyond the over-played Moving Pictures material) just as their Roll The Bones tour was winding down, so I missed that one.
Andrea Krause Back · 11 years, 6 months ago
I saw them 03/14/1992 and 11/01/1996. Not sure what tours those were.  Good shows. Geddy's hot. :)

Geoff Back · 11 years, 6 months ago
Heh...I got introduced to Rush just as the Counterparts tour was finishing.

It must be U2 last december in Buffalo. We had floor tickets and by luck we got into the inner elipse and were 5 feet from center stage! Nomally a post-concert high for me will last a day, maybe two if it was a really good show....this one lasted weeks. Even if we were in the nosebleed seats, they just put on such a high energy, fantastic show!
Snow In Summer Back · 11 years, 6 months ago
well, I didn't make it to Vertigo last year, but Elevation (Buffalo, 2001) & PopMart (Pittsburgh, 1997) were both fecking amazing.  it's the reason I compare a U2 concert to a religious experience... and Bono needs the ego boost, right? ;-)

Sir Paul's "Back in the USA" tour...upgraded from obstructed view $50 seats to floor 20th row center. Don't know why but don't care. it was AMAZING!!!!!!!!!!!!!
100% dainty! · 11 years, 6 months ago
Oh man, so many. Falcon Ridge 2003 really moved me. Girlyman/wa9 at the world cafe this May was also really awesome.
Sweet Honey in the Rock any time I see them.

that's just a few!
