I saw Black Flag and Seven Seconds in 85' at the old Tinderbox in Memphis , TN.
Was the coolest show I have ever attended.
As far as stadium/large venue acts I must admit that INXS/w opening act Ziggy Marley in 1988 was a tremendous show , although it was at the old Carolina Coliseum .

or rather festivals. but the best one would probably be the first Carolina Rebellion with Avenged Sevenfold, Godsmack, Seether, Bullet for my Valentine, Skillet, and Alter Bridge. the lineups since then have been "meh." Im not paying 100 bucks to see marilyn mansons ugly ####.

I love pretty much all music. WSP at Red Rocks is hard to top. If you ever have the opportunity to make it out to CO and go to Red Rocks it is must see venue for live music.

Also, Rage Against the Machine and Metallica are one of the best/intense live bands I have seen.

Re: What is the best concert you have ever been to?

... perhaps last, but certainly not least. If you like Blues, I saw a concert in Chastain Park outside Atlanta in the Summer of '92 that featured The Fabulous Thunderbirds, Delbert McClinton, BB King and Buddy Guy (and one other awesome group I can't even remember at the moment....) It was a veritable clinic of hard core, old school R&B (heavy on the "B".) It is, of course, my opinion, and perhaps my personal taste, but I'll say without exception there has never been the equal of Buddy Guy on guitar. Unless it might have been Carlos Santana, or Chuck Berry, each of whom I saw perform in LJC at Clemson in the early '70's. (Do you guys have any idea how much re-fer is coated on those Corten Steel girders o'head in LJC? It's probably why they're having to renovate the place.) Then there was Al Green in Cupertino, CA back in 2000, but he's a sentimental favorite. Awesome performance. And there was Tom Petty in the Blockbuster Pavilion in Charlotte back in the early '90's.... and a few others. Ah, where does the time go... but music is the timeless, cross-generational equalizer. (Thanks to the transistor radio and electronics ever since...!)

I've seen tons of concerts, but maybe the most inspiring was U2 at arrowhead pond?(if that's what it's called) back in 2001. I went just for the opener, pj Harvey, but left a U2 believer.
if you're into new bands, check out wolf Alice from the UK. They've got a US tour coming up.

Posted: Apr 26, 2015, 1:15 AM
 

I'm definitely one of those geezers. I mean, I've seen no reference in these posts to Janis Joplin, Grace Slick, or even Led Zeppelin. However, there was mention of Woodstock (which I missed going to "by that much." And it was about one hour away from home at the time.) Just the same, it was vinyl records, "Hi-Fi" and transistor radios that might not have actually made rock-and-roll (or Pop, or Country), but certainly made it possible to be what it has become today. It's all good!

Wow, and I just finished posting a reply claiming to be a geezer, myself. That's awesome! However, I didn't mention that one of the favorite concerts I've ever attended was Benny Goodman with the Spartanburg Symphony Orchestra in Twichell Auditorium, Converse College, back in the late '70's. There was the obligatory Swing medley, but the feature was a "classical" Clarinet Concerto he had actually recently composed. The whole thing was breathtaking. Later, there was Leontyne Price performing arias in the same venue ("Un Bel Di" - heart breaking and mind boggling perfection), and Ella Fitzgerald with Count Basie at The Cistern, College of Charelston, during the Spoleto Festival '78. Unbelievable. These are "concerts" outside the typical definition of such, but still legendary performances by legendary artists. Thanks all for sharing!

Baby Love, Flirtin' With Disaster and Highway To H3ll all in one night.Waylon Jennings and Alabama at the old White Horse Road Fairgrounds comes in a close second.

Posted: Apr 26, 2015, 9:21 AM
 

The sheer anarchy of being in the mosh pit of a Ramones show immediately comes to mind. Guns'n'Roses on one of their "on" nights. Being mesmerized by an early 80's Eddie Van Halen or Stevie Ray Vaughan. Georgia Satellites or Jason & The Scorchers in an intimate too-dark dive bar. A KISS original lineup mega-show. Mother's Finest in their heyday in the Clemson Armory. Drivin'n'Cryin upstairs Study Hall in downtown Clemson. Pat Travers or Jimmy Buffett in Tillman Hall.

I've been lucky to see a ton of them in my day, many of them special in their own unique way.

I'd advise you to go see shows in smaller venues - you get so much more enjoyment out of that than you do in an arena show. The big shows are impressive from the sheer size and volume, but nothing beats a great bar band show. Sadly, those are harder and harder to find these days. Once upon a time, you could go see live bands play all over the place in Clemson. Not any more.

U2 a couple times

I saw the Stones live, thought they sucked. It was supposedly a big deal though.

I enjoyed Ray Charles the best. Someone, my old Mom, asked me to go. I thought I was doing her a favor. She did me a favor. I loved it.

Then Axl Rose and Slash, who had been at the show came out and joined in a four-song jam. It was raucus, sloppy joy that went on for more than 3 hours. I wish it had taken place in the era of phone cameras.

No one sat down the entire time. It's like a giant house party bc everyone is dancing w Prince the whole time. Also in 2004 for one of the Atlanta shows, Morris Day and Jerome opened up
