I am a big fan of live concerts and I always wondered how come Head-fiers rarely talk about them in Music forum. Thumbs up for the thread and couple of names that some of you might know:

Manu Chao
Stereo MC`s
Asian Dub Foundation
Astral Projection
Henry Rollins
Death in Vegas
Misty in Roots
Bob Geldof

...and countless local bands and performers that you probably haven`t heard of so no use listing them. Some of them are excellent, though.

In the San Francisco Bay Area you get such a variety of artist performing all year round. Within this last year we saw many live performances in classical, jazz, and rock concerts, ranging from Patricia Barber to Sharon Isbin to Santana. The one rock music concert we attend year after year, for more than twenty years, is the yearly summer Santana concert. We watched him and his band members grow old, and saw the ethnic and age varieties of the attending audiences grow over the years. You do get this feeling that good music draws everyone together, and good artists last forever.

Hmmmmm, lets see, in no particular order:

Alice Cooper x 2
Tragically Hip x 3 (Twice in a small bar when they first started)
The Cult
New Model Army
Goo Goo Dolls
The God Machine
Marilyn Manson
Nine Inch Nails
White Zombie
Pearl Jam (In a small venue very similar to the one in the Evenflow video, Eddie even did the balcony fall into the crowd)
A Perfect Circle
Foo Fighters
Type O Negative
Our Lady Peace
Eve 6
The Catherine Wheel
Treble Charger
My Life With The Thrill Kill Cult

There's a ton of other smaller bands I've seen in bars and smaller venues but this is all I can think of off the top of my head. I'll add more when I think of them.

The best concerts were probably the two early Tragically Hip shows, those guys know how to put on a show. Pearl Jam and Goo Goo Dolls in a smaller venues before they got really big were both quite good as well. At this point the only band I truly want to see is Tool but I would want to see them in a smaller venue like the Opera House in Toronto or something similar.

Cool thread, first off...

I would do just about anything if it were possible for me to go back in time and see bands like Pink Floyd, Zeppelin, the Stones, the Dead, etc during their prime...alas

Anyways, here's my list, the best I can remember it (and in no order):

Phish (23 times)
Medeski Martin and Wood (10+)
Umphrey's Mcgee (10+)
Karl Denson (5?)
Sound Tribe Sector 9 (10?)
Trey Anastasio (solo)
Les Claypool's Flying Frog Brigade
Phil Lesh and Friends (3?)
Smashing Pumpkins
Tom Petty
Bob Dylan
String Cheese Incident
Leftover Salmon
Roger Walter's 20th Congress
Tea Leaf Green
Disco Biscuits
Keller Williams
Yonder Mountain String Band
Dark Star Orchestra
Michael Franti & Spearhead
Jacob Fred Jazz Odyssey
OM Trio
Steve Kimock
Steve Winwood
John Scofield
Fareed Haque Group
The Slip

I could keep on going, but that's a decent list...I enjoy a lot of smaller bands that tour hardcore and rely on word of mouth to be successful. I enjoy the improvisational aspects of live music and appreciate the bands that play show after show (each of them different) for their fans.

Man while I can't see ive seen anywhere near the number as many of you out here, oh how i wish i would have been alive to see pink floyd do the wall, the two rock concerts i have been to so far were both pretty phenominal:

godspeed you! black emperor (March 2003)
radiohead (August 2003)

Also have seen numerous live jazz performances but no one really notable.

I have been to many, but the most memorable were:

Tom Waits
Pink Floyd

In that order, and I am a huge Floyd fan, but Tom Waits was probably the best live show that I have ever heard. I have been to some Jazz shows that have been just as good, but nothing has topped it yet.

I started a post but there were too many...Life is good!
post #44 of 739
Here's some I recall...

The Police (Meadowlands, NJ) (my first concert - damn, just showed my age!)
David Bowie (Glass Spider tour)
Elton John (private box seats at the Fleet center in Boston - now THIS is the way to see a concert!)
Bruce Springsteen (Gillette stadium in Foxboro, MA - worst sound I've ever heard at a concert but Bruce puts on a good show)
