What was the best concert you have ever been?

my best one was Blind Guardian - a night at the opera tour 2002 in vienna. This was just great. B)

I hope there isn't any topic like this yet. :unsure:

:D I would have to say either WoodStock '94 or Clash Of The Titans in '91.Clash Of The Titans had Megadeth,Slayer and Anthrax all at their peak and then you had Alice In Chains open up for them 3,it was right before they made it big. :D

And what can you say about WoodStock '94...nothing unless you were there,it was free and it was fucking awesome.No bullshit like that '99 shit,nothing but half a million brothers and sisters haveing fun. :D

Have not been to alot of concerts lately...mainly just watch local shows at the bars anymore,but in my youth,back in the early to mid 90's I tryed to go to everyone that came through. :D

Saw Radiohead once at a tiny little venue in Cambridge (UK) called the Junction. That was real good.

I also saw Green Day at the same place after Dookie came out and that was one of the most exciting energetic shows I've ever seen. Its always better at the small places ;)

No doubt in my mind about that.
The Freddie Mercury tribute for Aids awareness in Wembley 1992.
Best performers there were George Michael and Seal.
Worst was Roger Daltrey.
And I'm not a fan of the two first.
Metallica and Guns 'n Roses were great too btw.
So were Def Leppard,..and David Bowie,....and Lisa Stansfield,..and Extreme,..and Annie Lennox, ......and Paul Young, and...

Need I go on? :D

the Black Crowes at the New Aud in Worcester, MA. It was 93 or 94, during the Southern Harmoney and Musical Companion tour. Blistering loud, southern rock rules!!!

Old school Megadeth, Slayer, and Anthrax...hell yeah. I saw Rollins Band play about 2 years ago. It was tight. I got to meet Henry Rollins. I also saw Fugazi about a year ago...that was cool. Those are my 2 favorite concerts. wanted to see THE BATTLE OF THE ROBOTS TOUR a few months ago...Def Jux underground rap. But I couldnt go. :angry:

Only been to 2 but they were good.

First, Ozzy in Fairbanks Alaska- probably only about 1500-2000 people. Ozzy was a bit sick so the drummer did a solo that seemed to last 10 minutes or so. Great job so Ozzy could rest up I geuss.

Second, Pink Floyd- Division Bell in Munich, not the best album but it kinda grew on me. By far a better concert then Ozzy's. How can you compare Pink Floyd giving it there all to Ozzy in a tiny little Ice Hockey rink? Not really fair :)

Oh yeah, saw a Sun fest in Fairbanks also with Strawberry Alarm Clock, John Sebastion, drummer(I think) from The Doors and others. Great time for what it was. Those were about 11 years ago.

Woodstock '94 was by far the best ever. Small area, rain and a bunch of really cool people all partying together.

'99 sucked.

Second would be Bumbershoot 2001, this festival they put on in Seattle every year.

far the best was a concert Bertus Borgers in Eindhoven he played for 2 hours it's just blues, after the concert (23.30) he mingled with the audience (drinking beer), at 01.00 he start playing again for more than an hour, never heard anything better as that. Btw download music from Cuby & the blizards, Sweet d'Buster, Bertus Borgers Band or Herman Brood (with his wild romance) you'll here him play the sax (and sing sometimes).

Bruce springsteen in 1985 in Rotterdam 3,5 hours playing with the E street band was great to.
And the Counting Crows concerts are always awesome

Its gotta be Nirvana in May 1992 at the Kilburn National London. They were still pretty unknown when I bought the ticket 6 months earlier. By the time it came to the concert I could have sold the ticket for a stupid amount of money&#33; Totally Awesome Gig&#33;&#33;&#33; :o

Best for me was U2 - Glasgow Barrowlands in 84 or Greenday also at the Barrowlands 93 I think.

02-15-2003, 08:00 PM
Choice of three I&#39;m afraid.

Guns &#39;N&#39; Roses at the Monsters Of Rock, Donnington in 1987
Steve Harley & Cockney Rebel, about the same time at Northampton Derngate. Excellent
Ugly Kid Joe at Roadmender, Northampton a few years back.

There the ones I remember the most

Damn that Guinness :D
