Best Concert

Sigur Ros is the greatest living band. Discuss.

Best Concert

Postby Lord Voldemoo on Wed Dec 14, 2005 5:10 pm

Ok, seems like we did this a long time ago, but I just searched the entire music forum and can't find the thread. KCBC, if you find a redundant thread, I give you permission to strike me about the head.

What's the best concert you've ever been to? I love opportunities to see big bands in small venues, so when I saw Pearl Jam at the Croc in Seattle back in the mid-90's it blew my mind.

Either the Rolling Stones in 2002 or Audioslave last month (I was in the front row on the rail). "Sleep Now in the Fire" was the greatest moment of my concert-going career.

I travelled to Houston to see Metallica/Guns and Roses/Faith No More at the Astrodome. We spent the entire time in the pit on the floor infront of the stage. It was AWESOME. Metallica blew GNR out of the water.

The very next day we spent it at Lollapalooza 2. I don't remember being so drunk and tired, and I wound up with some new piercings that probably shouldn't be mentioned here.

Ice Cube was the shit. By the time the final act came on, I had weaved my way to the front for the Chili Peppers and their set.

It was awesome.

Only thing close was seeing Public Enemy in a small club here in Austin. They blew the doors off the place. I even got some dap from Chuck D and Flava Flav.

Peter Gabriel: the So tour in (I think) 1986.

It was as much a theatrical experience as it was a concert.

He encored with "Biko", had the audience doing the chant... he walked off the stage, the band stopped, and the audience continued the chant for a good 15 minutes after the lights came up.

I've seen more concerts than I care to remember, but this one far outclassed any of them.

Man I love this thread.

Also a few years ago at SXSW, Ozomatli broke out the best band entrance ever. What a set. Immediately followed by pre-Fergie Black Eyed Peas and Mix Master Mike. I'm tired just typing this. Annie Leibowitz was in the crowd taking photos so you had to know it was a special deal.

I sat front row at a New Kids concert back in 1990 or something like that. Went with a good girl friend that didn't want to go alone. Not a bad show.

And since I'm bragging. En Vogue. Vanilla Ice. MC Hammer. In concert together. One night that my parachute pants actually melted from all of my Hammer moves.

(There is nothing I enjoy more than deep sixing my music credibility by saying that NKOTB were good in concert.)

One thing I'm truly proud of...the New Kids came to my (tiny) hometown when they started, all my friends went, but I absolutely refused...

I've been to my share of butt-rock concerts though, Great White, Skid Row, Firehouse, Tesla, etc., etc.

Me and Pudie just saw KORN at a local nightclub here that has a max capacity of 2000.

They rocked the friggin house....

I'm not a huge KORN fan, but any band that big in a place that small has got to rock.

Doc, I think I love you, man. I would have killed to see a vintage MC Hammer or Vanilla Ice show.

To the Extreme, I rock the mic like a vandal, light up the stage, and wax a chump like a candle.

Did Maynard just sing and move in front of a blue screen off to the right of the stage?? That's what he did at the concert I saw and the whole time trippy things were happening on the main screen center stage??
It was like all the Tool video's combined into one big mind fuck....

Also there were the contortionist people climbing the ropes, creating silhouette's against the main screen.....

I loved that fucking show....

As far as small bands that nobody knows about goes. My favorite show in a small venue came from a band from Athens GA called The Woggles.

They tour non-stop and if you get a chance, they will blow you away. Amazing shows and their audiences really get into the groove.

I'm never good at identifying genres especially when they splinter into obscure shit.

I would say loud rock and roll. Maybe heading toward punk but they have complete songs and no real agenda.

I think you can find them on iTunes. Their live shows are about a million times better than their CDs in my opinion.

i had tickets for that shit too. but i was going to see faith no more. i liked metallica, and thought gnr was seriously g@y, but i loooooved me some fnm. bummer for me, when mr. hettfield got himself all burnt up in a pyrotechnics explosion. delayed the tour for 6 weeks, faith no more dropped out, and by the time they made it here, i got ice-t's body count instead. weak.

now, since the "top five" thing works so well for me, here are my top five shows, in no particular order:

Cornelius - 10/02 El Rey Theatre, Los Angeles
Mr. Bungle - 04/96? Soma, San Diego (disco volante tour)
Oingo Boingo - 08/94 Open Air Amphitheater SDSU, San Diego
Kraftwerk - 04/04 The Warfield, San Francisco
Squirrel Nut Zippers - 07/97 4th & B, San Diego

Last great concert I saw was Billy Joel and Elton John touring together. I never saw them do individual shows, so I can't compare, but they were fantastic together. Especially when they did the other's songs.

GNR with Metallica was like 1990 or some outrageous long time ago around then...
And no there was no Riot at the show I saw in NYC...
The very next show was the one Axl cancelled & I think that's the one with the riots....
The show fucking rocked though...

I was skinny when I went to see the Metallica/GNR so it was in the early 90s.

The Zippers are on my list too.

Mars Volta is amazing. At the Drivein was even cooler.

Being in Austin lets me see a bunch of little known bands who have great shows. There is an avant garde group of whackjobs called Brown Whornet that have to be seen to be believed. The best show I've seen of their involved a bum setting his hair on fire n stage.

I saw GNR open for Crue at the Omni in Atl, 1988,10th row. First of 2 nights for GirlsGirlsGirls. They had just replaced Whitesnake on the tour. The second night he had the scuffle that prevented any other GNR visit to Atlanta. Adler's drumstick got thrown to our feet, there was a pile up. I looked at my friend and said "Stephen Adler? Big Fu#*in Deal!"

I saw NKOTB also at Grant Field at Georgia Tech, where I had earlier witnessed the Stones. The New Kids crowd was louder. I took my little sis. :(

That hair is a wig he wears for APC, to sperate his 2 bands.

That was the most dissapointing concert I'd ever been to. Kid Rock put on a better show then Metallica.

Kid Rock was actually a good "performance", the music just sucks.

And Metallica Rocked.

The second time I went I got my playboy bunny t-shirt (which I was wearing) signed by all of Linkin park.... I still have it....

It was 110 degrees that day.....

How do you people afford all these concerts? Perhaps you had/have more free money than I, or a greater willingness to spend it on such ventures.

Best show ever was Richard Thompson solo acoustic at the Maintenance Shop in Ames, Iowa on the Rumor and Sigh tour, 1991.

I was less than ten feet away from him and on my low-grade bootleg video you can hear me yell out a request preference -- and him chanting it back, mocking me a bit. Then playing it to open a medley.

He had some trouble with a recalcitrant capo, but otherwise it was golden. He is a lengendary guitarist, a brilliant lyricist and a man of humor. Why the hell isn't he rich?

I love Linkin Park. They get a bunch of shit, but damn if they don't get your heart beating a little harder.

Sweet...

We have this local 2 day concert called Xfest and one year I went and had a white king sized sheet with all the bands (like 30) and a huge logo of our local radio station in the middle of the sheet.

I got like 18 or so bands to sign it....and now it is lost somewhere.
