beatnic:Help me pick.
beatnic:If I had to: 1975 Bruce Springsteen and the E Street Band - Born to Run Tour. 3 hours of the ultimate Rock and Roll
Dark Roast:August 1974 Crosby, Stills, Nash and Young. I had just turned 17 on July 20. They had a bunch of Mcintosh Amps powering their equipment. You can't miss the blue hue of a Mcintosh! Thanks for bringing back memories of one of the best concerts I ever attended!
brianetz1:you all are OLD!
for reference, my first concert when i was like 13 or 14 was Milli Vanilli............now that is some quality concert going.
Rhamlin:Haven't been to a concert in probably 18 years but the 2 that really stand out were both Stevie Ray Vaughn. Great outdoor concerts.

However, being "old" placed me in the middle of the Rock and Roll Superfest known as The 70's. You youngsters can only dream!

I'd love to have a Mac system in my home... Nothing compares
fla-gypsy:Best concert memories? ZZ Top shaking the Coliseum with LaGrange, Have mercy, Jesus just left Chicago, Deep Purple-Machine Head tour, Smoke on the Water= wow, Allman Brothers x3, the twin drummers, hammond organ and slide guitars were an awesome combination, Skynyrd rocking the hometown, Rolling Stones 1975, pretty special after that tea we drank and got the cowpie off of our shoes, can't say anymore. I will note I didn't leave my chair the entire time for any reason but I felt I could transport anywhere at will.
pelirrojo:I went to a Tool show in Southaven, MS just outside of Memphis a backin 07 that was one of the more epic journeys of my college career. It had been postponed because Danny Carey had torn a bicep, but that's beside the point.
We crammed 5 of us into a white 1987 Honda Civic hatchback affectionately named "the egg." Think Wayne and Garth in the pinto. That's right, three deep in the back seat and I was riding ****. We drove in some of the heaviest rain I think I've ever seen from Little Rock, AR following a wicked front all the way across the state. I think had there been less weight in the car it would have hydroplaned off the road, but alas it did not. Travelling at 30 to 40 miles per hour from Little Rock to Memphis takes a while, but we didn't have time to slow down or stop for fear of being late to the show. We whiteknuckled it all the way and right as we got to West Memphis, AR the clouds parted and we had finally gotten out ahead of the front.
I don't know how many of you have been across the I-40/55 bridge over the Mississippi River, but it is quite bumpy and we could smell the tire burning from rubbing the inside of the wheel well over every bump, probably due to the 5 adults in "the egg." This did not concern us, we had a show to get to. We arrived just in time to see Kinski, the opening act.
For those of you who like Tool, but have not been to a show, I can't explain how awesome their live shows are. This was my second time to see them, and the next time they're anywhere near here I will gladly go see them again, or any of Maynard's other projects for that matter.
We finished the night up gambling in Tunica, and dragging home the next day.
