What Live concerts have you attended? - Page 32

post #466 of 569

Elvis (unfortunately the fat, just before he died Elvis) and they really said "Elvis has left the building" when the audience was cheering for an encore.

Sha Na Na/Dave Loggins

Doobie Brothers (on the "What were Once Vices Are Now Habits") tour.  A really great show.  Confirmed my belief in quality Rock.  Jeff "Skunk" Baxter fresh from Steely Dan was outstanding.

Three Dog Night/Kansas (the warm up act)  Don Kirschner claimed Kansas was the "next big act" and they were impressive

America (off their first major album with "A Horse With No Name")

ELO (premiered "Evil Woman") 

Kenny Loggins/Dave Mason

Louisville Jam:  Foreigner/REO Speedwagon/Steve Miller Band and last but not least Thin Lizzy they killed ("The Boys Are Back in Town")

Boston/Sammy Hagar

Heart

Jimmy Buffett ($2 tickets premiered "Margaritaville")

Bruce Springsteen ("The River") 3 1/2 hour show that felt like a religious revival very emotional and intense

The Who (1985) Outstanding sound.  Loud but perfectly clear.  30th row on a ticket lottery. John Entwhistle made the bass guitar sing  

Rolling Stones ("Emotional Rescue")

Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers  ("Long After Dark") Tight band and flawlessly entertaining

Yes ("90125") Excellent 

The Kinks("One For the Road")/Romantics (warm up act) Literally people danced in the aisles and on the floor.

The Kinks ("Around the Dial")

John Cougar (soon to be Mellencamp)

Journey/Foreigner

ZZ Top ("Eliminator")/Sammy Hagar

Heart/Mellencamp

The Beach Boys (with Carl Wilson)

Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers ("Into the Great Wide Open")

John Mellencamp ("Lonesome Jubilee")/Blind Melon

Cheap Trick/The Smithereens

Don Henley

Roger Waters

John Fogerty

Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers ("Wildflowers") 

Goo Goo Dolls/Sugar Ray

The Beach Boys

Collective Soul

John Mayer

Kelly Clarkson

Nickleback

Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers ("Running Down a Dream")/The Strokes

Alice Cooper

Mark Knopfler (The guitar work was impressive)

Smashing Pumpkins

Collective Soul X2

The Eagles

Weezer/Angels and Airwaves/Tokyo Police Club

Tom Petty and The Heartbreakers/Steve Winwood

Gavin Rossdale

Blues Traveler and Dirty Guvnah's

Paul McCartney at Yankee stadium Billy Joel came out to play "I Saw Her Standing There" McCartney played 3 1/4 hours nonstop. 

Huey Lewis and The News

Chicago

Mumford and Sons/Dawes at the Ryman auditorium 

Van Halen/Kool and The Gang (Eddie Van Halen greatest guitar player I have ever seen)

Roger Waters "The Wall" craziest show really stunning

Noel Gallagher/Snow Patrol/Jake Bugg

Several hundred....among some notables....

 

Zeppelin in 1975.  Page was so wasted they stopped the show after 4 songs and we ended up getting refunds.

 

Rush 27 times.  Mostly in the 70's and 80's when they were trying to make a name for themselves.

 

Uriah Heep backing up KISS in 1976.

 

Thin Lizzy backing up Queen in 1976.  Terrific show by both bands.

 

Blue Oyster Cult in 1977.....THAT was heavy metal!

 

1975....while Aerosmith was already around a few years it was "Toys in the Attic" that put them on the map.  Saw Ted Nugent back them up and Ted pretty much stole the show.   That was when HIS breakthrough NUGENT record came out with "Stranglehold."

 

Todd Rundgren many times solo and with Utopia...just a great performer and multi-talented artist.

 

ZZ Top....just fun raunchy Texas rock and roll from the Gibbons brothers.

 

Chicago....great band, great performers.

Rush 27X's that is unbelievably great and a solid band at that.  The best I have to offer is Tom Petty 6X's since 1982, the most consistently tight band I ever saw.  I saw Thin Lizzy in 1977 they put Foreigner, REO Speedwagon, and The Steve Miller Band in the same venue to shame.

Yea....Garry Richwrath on lead guitar was a pleasant surprise with REO.  The guys a bit sloppy but he can play some wicked solos.  Thin Lizzy was awesome.....it was "Jailbreak" tour versus Queens "Night at the Opera" tour on the show I was at.  A couple great bands.  Bassist Phil Lynnott rest his soul. Looked like Jimmy Hendrix with a bass guitar in his hands.

It was a strange time for REO, people tend to remember the mushy ballads from the early 80's.  I really was more into "Riding the Storm Out." I recall Richwrath nearly left the band over the ballads.  It was a strange time for Rock just like the disco era, bands followed the trend of the times to sell records.  Journey who I saw a few years later also went the ballad highway.  At the time it to me like they sold their souls to the devil. One ballad for slow dancing was OK but two or more was just wrong. 

 

Loved Thin Lizzy. Phil Lynnott tore it up when I saw him. Foreigner was above average.  Lou Graham was impressive on lead vocals and Mick Jones could play guitar.  Steve Miller was pretty boring, but that was my impression at the time.

Do you keep track alphabetically?  I've always done it chronologically. Out of curiosity what tour did you catch The Kinks on?  You listed multiple groups I wish I could have caught live.

No, I just listed them from memory and used a spreadsheet to sort them. 

 

The Kinks was back in 81(I think)  at Earls Court in London, one day after seeing Bob Dylan in his "christian" phase !

 

The most fun group was The Undertones

I Saw The Kinks in '82. The Romantics were the opening act. A seriously fun concert. We danced in the aisles. No one sat down the entire show.  Great setlist as well as high drama between Ray and Dave Davies.  I thought it was part of the act, or maybe it wasn't, but Ray stopped the show midstream and claimed someone thru a bottle at him. He threatened to stop the show completely and it incited the crowd.  Brilliant move the passion built and the crowd really got into it.  Ray and Dave fought through out the show and I'm sure that part was genuine.
