I saw The Doobie Brothers by myself when I was 16yo.  It was the "What Were Once Vices Are Now Habits" tour, "Black Water" was just breaking out as a hit single as it was a B-side to "Another Park, Another Sunday."  Jeff "Skunk" Baxter had just left Steely Dan and joined the band, he was impressive.  Friends had already blown their cash seeing BTO.

Two: Pink Floyd (the Wall concert in NY). It was sold out & no one wanted to try scalping with me.
The other was Grateful Dead.
Completely different crowds, but no regrets for either.

Yeah, you're right. Zappa show was like nothing else...kinda like Zappa himself.

Yes, great point! All the Genesis shows I saw were post Gabriel. It would've been great to see them with him out in front. Selling England is one of my favorites...

The Eagles last night on the "History of The Eagles" tour.  Did not have tickets till one day before the show a coworker offered me their tickets at face value as their babysitter cancelled out on them. I saw them four years ago and frankly I enjoyed this show even more.  Bernie Leadon one of the four original members played about half the set.  Henley's voice was in fine form, however Joe Walsh stole the show.

I got a chance to see The Killers on their first concert in Korea about a month ago. Was really enjoyable!

In the last year I've seen Fleetwood Mac, The Eagles, The Lumineers, Eric Clapton, Muse, and The Killers.  My favorite:  The Killers hands down.  The Eagles come the closest, 3 hours of great harmonies.  For intensity of performance and execution The Killers.

So far this year:

Berlin Philharmonic

Jake Bugg with opening act The Skins at The Ryman in Nashville

 

I saw Jake Bugg when he was 18 as the opening act for Noel Gallagher/Snow Patrol at The Ryman in Nashville

 

Now at 19 he's the main act.  Nice show, Jake is a no frills guy, his guitar playing has improved and his electric guitar work was impressive.  He has added some stage moves that are new.  I really liked the Johnny Cash guitar posturing.  His set list included an acoustic version of "Broken" (my favorite and perfect for the Ryman's superior sound quality) and a cover of Neil Young's "Hey Hey, My My."  

 

The Skins are a high energy band from Brooklyn, The lead guitar kicked butt, and the lead singer had amazing vocal range.  Adrien Grenier (Entourage) was hanging out with the audience before and after the show, he is filming The Skins on tour.

Some of my highlights:

 

I'm too young to have seen The Beatles, but I did see McCartney's tour in 1989. Definite highlight!

The Rolling Stones 

Rush (a few times)

Pink Floyd (after Roger left the band...this was the Momentary Lapse of Reason tour...I was 15)

Roger Waters performing The Wall a few years back and loved every minute

I saw the Floyd in 1975, I think this was just before "Wish You Were Here" was released.

Amazing.

 

I saw Rush a few months before the first album was released.

They played at our high school dance.

This was before anyone knew who they were..........LOL!

I would have loved to have seen Floyd with Roger part of the band...but in 1975, I was only 3. :p

 

I've seen Rush a few times...in the 80s and very recently and they are one hell of a great band! But then again, we're both from Hogtown, hard not to be Rush fans!

One of the sadder moment of my life, I came down with Mono and was so sick I missed Floyd on the Animals tour.  I had some very hard to find tickets.

 

Since then I saw Waters on his first solo tour (Paul Carrack played drums) and two years ago The Wall Tour.

 

The Wall was mind blowing good.
