Can tell you more stories about Philo, but all good!! 

post #632 of 643

200+ in my time.  Top five probably something like this.

 

1)  RUSH (early 1980's Hemispheres tour).

2)  Dave Weckl  2012...(greatest 4-some musicianship I have ever seen in my life)

3)  Pat Metheny Group 2010 (again, a pure clinic in musicianship)

4)  Queen/ Thin Lizzy  1978 (2 great bands at their peak)

5)  Todd Rundgren  2000 (Second Wind tour)   the guy is just amazing.....

6)  Blue Oyster Cult 1976 (On Your Feet Or On Your Knees tour)
7)  Eagles  1979 

8) Frank Zappa  1982 (came to my college.  Surprisingly GREAT concert)

 

Never saw The Who but Led Zeppelin was awful as Jimmy Page was too stoned to play and they cut the cord after 3 songs.  1975 Physical Grafeeti tour).   Big disappointment.

 

 

 

 

I will stop.......too many good ones.  Bruce Hornsby was awesome.  Garth Brooks in 1991....he was amazing!

 

These list things are too hard.  If anything, my TOP 3 will never change. They were insane.  And I have seen RUSH 28 times.

My top  shows that were very good and awesome for various reasons

 

ELO (Evil Woman tour) I was in high school and we told our home room teacher we were going to see an orchestra that night, she was so proud and she had no clue

Boston (Don't Look Back tour) Brad Delp's voice good God, 4th row

America (Horse With No Name) 

John Mellencamp (Lonesome Jubilee)/Blind Melon as a warm up act

The Kinks (Misfits tour)/The Romantics  everyone danced in the aisles 

Jimmy Buffett (Margaritaville tour) $2 college special

 

My 4 worst shows for various reasons

Elvis 1974, I was in middle school, but with parents out of town, biked down to the box office and bought tickets because it was Elvis, the show was 6 back up singers and Elvis singing every once in a while, Elvis was fat and soon to be dead

Alice Cooper (2010) in a 3,000 seat indoor arena, badly managed sound board, speakers were clipping and loud

Sugar Ray/Goo Goo Dolls Ray confessed that he drank too much the night before and suk'd, Fastball cancelled prior to the show

Smashing Pumpkins played 4 familiar songs all night (I'm a fan and have all the albums) covers and very obscure what the hell

 

My current top 5

Paul McCartney NYC Billy Joel and 25+ Beatles songs

The Killers (Battle Born) in the Grand Ole Opry (Brad Paisley came up and joined the band)

The Who (It's Hard) so loud and clear, so hard to get that right

Van Halen (A Different Kind Of Truth)

Bruce Springsteen (the River Tour)

 

My 3 best sounding shows

Jake Bugg (1st album) warmup for Noel Gallagher/Snow Patrol at The Ryman in Nashville

Mark Knopfler (Privateering) Ovens Auditorium Charlotte, NC 

Yes (90215 tour) Louisville Gardens

 

Most consistently great artist over the years

Tom Petty X6 1982-2014

Nice! I would've liked to have seen McCartney when his voice still rocked.

I'll trade you "The River" for one of the Led Zeppelin shows

His voice over the last two years comes and goes, I saw him in Nashville 6 months ago and he was good, but 5 years ago his voice was much stronger, last night on the SNL reunion show his voice was shaky on "Maybe I'm Amazed."

I'll trade you Led Zeppelin 1977 for Bruce Springsteen's "The River" show.
I'll set the coordinates in the Time/Space continuum transmogrifier to fulfil your request.

Careful what you ask for LOL...Those were bad years for Zeppelin.  Page was a mess.  My 1975 show was stopped after 3 songs he was too stoned to play.  Sad situation.  That was the beginning of the end of their touring and recording.  Not saying he was like this every night.  But it was becoming a regular problem.

Yeah I've heard that too. A shame. Page is so talented 😕
post #641 of 643

- Mogwai

- NIN

- Silversun Pickups

- Phantogram

- Tycho

- War on Drugs

- Snow mine

- Russian Circles

Loved every concert.

NIN/Mogwai/Phantogram were some of the best concerts
 

post #642 of 643

i love that phantogram song "don't move", something about it is soo damn catchy! i would imagine NIN to be amazing too. i've been told a bunch of times that mogwai is "amazing", but i've yet to be mind-blown yet... im gonna give them some more listening. if you had to recommend an album to listen the whole way through, which one would it be? (i'm an album-oriented dude).

post #643 of 643

Steely Dan

Chick Corea

Pat Metheny Group

Al Dimeola

The Eagles

Kansas

Van Halen Dave/Sammie

Aerosmith

Journey

Heart

Boston Symphony Orchestra, Beethoven's 9th

Rolling Stones

Fourplay-Carlton

Toto

 

Recommending an album to listen all the way through is difficult but I would probably say Miles's "Kinda Blue." There's not a bad song on there--if you're into jazz.
