Talking about a loud concert.
I saw Manowar around 1988 and they were LOUD.I was standing next the soundtable in the middle of the concerthall,and remembered my pants were shaking from the soundwaves.
Marshalls all over!

I have been to exactly 2, but they were both fantastic.

First one was Opeth at a bar in San Antonio, which blew my mind.

The second one was Tool at Nokia Theatre which further blew my mind.

I saw U2 at the University Of Virginia's Scott Stadium in Charlottesville, Virginia this past Thursday night. What an extravaganza! This is a relatively small stadium and I had excellent seats. There aren't too many bands that can put on a stadium concert anymore. U2 has it down to a science. After an absolutely deafening set by Muse, U2 brought the place down. This was the sixth time that I have seen U2 and I have to admit it wasn't my favorite show. I think that the "ZooTV" tour will always be my favorite. (followed by the "Elevation" tour) They emphasized the newer stuff which I guess is to be expected in a thirty-year career. However, I really miss hearing them do the song "Bad." (...which I have always thought was their best live song) Charlottesville is a great town and it has basically been "U2-ville" for the past week! The local television news, the front page of local newspapers, every hotel room in town, traffic, and parking throughout the area all dominated by U2's appearance. It was something to experience that's for sure. While I was there I visited the bar where Dave Matthews was a bartender and where he played early in his career. All in all it was a great musical weekend...

Other concerts that I have attended...

Dinosaur Jr was playing in Atlanta when I went to the Mono concert.

Mono had their volume turned up super loud too, which I thought was kind of a shame, since their music isn't necessarily 'loud' music. I guess they use some tricks with reverb though.

Wish now I'd bought the filtered earplugs in time. Had to wear regular earplugs.
