I saw someone posted their stubs from shows on here which was interesting.I never kept many but it got me thinking of the well over 500 major shows I've been to.

I'm just curious what other peoples favorite shows were overall.I understand there could be many different reasons why its a fav but its nice to recall some of these and look forward to many more.

K,here goes mine,in no particular order;


Pink Floyd (Dark Side tour & they also performed the Meddle Lp again,a 3 1/2 or 4 hr show)

Allman Brothers (outdoor summer of 1970 Duane & Dickey trading solos,harmonizing,experimenting & playing lengthy melodies...never saw anything like that.And never matched it again.They played songs what seemed forever! Duane stands alone.A moment frozen in time.

Led Zeppelin ('69 tour,never heard sounds or vocals or Blues/Rock guitar played like that,all were on edge of seats when Page played his bow on guitar)

Black Sabbath (same,never heard sounds or heavy guitar like that...& Ozzy in his frilled jacket...and eerie vocals,they really were masters of the universe & created a genre at the time)

Jethro Tull (Thick as Brick tour also played all of Aquelung again,Theatrical,1st rock flutist)

The Who w/Skynard opening (Skynard shocked the crowd & blew everyone away with their entrance on the scene,3 guitars soloing,harmonizing.The crowd never knew what hit them & they were in headlines the next morning,how they blew the Who off the stage as openers)

Allman Brothers (about'95 when Derek first joined them onstage at 13 & blew everyone away.The entire audience jumped to its feet for the 2 slide songs he played...I had given up on thinking I'd ever see anyone play slide guitar like Duane again..until then w/the same sg guitar & stance...& the subtle
motions between him & Greg were "reminiscent".I leaned over & said omg,its Duane.I thought "wouldn't it be great if he joined ABB".Truly a moment frozen in time)

Pink Floyd (Their Last tour-hypnotic , mesmorizing & perfect)

Rolling Stones (w/Mick Taylor! Did all of Stickey Fingers & Gimmie Shelter in about '71)

Genesis ( '70 Musical Box tour,never saw theatrics,instrumentals & costume changes like that-even w/Alice Cooper.Gabriel was truly original.Never the same after he left.Sat in front on floor in a university,no one even knew them.

Avenged Sevenfold w/Korn (in Vegas 2011,incredible polytechniqes,sound,energy & overall tight show,blew me away)

Stones (in Aussie at a 2000 seater w/Angus Young surprise guesting,2002)

The 3 Kings-BB,Freddie & Albert ('70's in a small theatre,truly amazing to see each legend in top form)

Johnny & Edgar Winter (along w/ Mountain {w/Corky Lang & Papalardi} & early Tull in '69). Never saw performances played like any of them. Was standing backstage w/Johnny & Edgar (after the riot police left).We left at 3am & there were still 3 more big bands left..thats when bands just kept playing till the audiences left.

is that 10 yet ?...I almost forgot- Montery Pop ('68,the Movie-this was so instrumental in shaping my musical tastes & set me on a path...Hendix,Who,Otis...)

A/C D/C (every time)
Rory Gallagher ('74
Zeppelin ('74,Stairway to Heaven tour,big story behind that one)
Peachfest (2013 ABB,Galactic,Weir & all the others & overall feel & camping,had the feel of original concerts in '70's)
Grand Funk Railroad ('69 or '70 just bursting onto scene.Highest energy band of time.1st of 3 shows then they just 'disappeared)
Lamb of God (2011,still appreciating the heavy things in life,spellbinding,awesome energy,harmonizing ,lights & fire)
ELP (1st tour in '70 no one ever heard moog or sounds like that from Emerson or saw anyone handle an organ like him.,He killed his organ with swords
& threw it around the stage) god there's whole other story behind that one.

But I do have to say,some of these bands certainly stand Alone (in their own way)..& that was really special!

This was actually fun to put together!! Looking forward to more 'special' concerts!

so many of my truly memorable concert experiences have been in lightly attended clubs - DTB and Mule at Zydeco in Bham, NMAS at Zydeco, Roy Rogers at the old Louie Louie, even a "new" Nashville based singer/guitarist and I know big time ABB fan Bart Walker here in Bham at Iron City last year. And some legendary blues guys in clubs - Buddy, Albert Collins...

Plenty of ABB and classic Blues shows, but most memorable and explosive perhaps because I didn't know what to expect was Dixie Dregs opening for the Barrere Band (Little Feat) around '81 at Hofstra University. I am pretty sure that people in the audience were spontaneously combusting because it was that musically smokin' hot! I actually went for the Feat and by the time the Dregs finished I was so amazed at what I had seen that it was a bit of a let down no matter who played second. Great memories of that show particularly their version of The Bash.

I'm going to echo a few from moccioABB - The Peter Gabriel "So" tour in the Spectrum was an emotional and epic event. Just fantastic. The Grateful Dead "Nightfall of Diamonds" show was outstanding, as was the "Crimson, White, and Indigo" show Summer of '89. ABB in the Fox, especially the Friday and Sunday shows were great.

Others that were special to me were: The opening night of Jerry Garcia on Broadway. That is the only time I met Bill Graham. He handed out paper top hats to the crowd and we were instructed to don the top hats before the encore. Then when Jerry came out everyone bowed and tipped their hats. Jerry's smile was sublime. I caught three of those Broadway shows and they were all great. Another top notch Jerry show was during the early 80's on the Riverboat in New Orleans.

Then there were four nights of music in New Orleans where I caught the Grateful Dead for two nights at the Saenger, followed by Talking Heads in the Warehouse, followed the next night by the Clash in the Warehouse. That was a great week of music.

U2's "Joshua Tree" tour two nights in MSG.

J.J. Cahill at Old Man River's outside of New Orleans. I saw U2 there as well but it was there first tour and I wasn't that impressed. Silly me.

Mark Knopfler in the Ryman Auditorium.

Gov't Mule's first show at Rivalry's on Cherry Street.

The Tom Petty and Bob Dylan tour. I caught three of those shows and they were some of the most professional and best sounding shows I've experienced.

Dire Straights in Radio City. Lou Reed in Radio City. The Moody Blues in Radio City.

Some recent great shows were Lyle Lovett and John Hiatt in the Birchmere. Paul McCartney at National's Park. Bob Dylan and Mark Knopfler in the Verizon Center.

It is really a hard question to answer. They are all so different for so many different reasons.

Like many have said...tons of great shows from arenas to bars over the years.
but I would have to say the first few I saw were some of my most notable...

Johnny Winter And Live tour - '71
Jethro Tull Aqualung tour - '71
J Geils Full House tour - '72
ABB 5 man tour - '72
Jethro Tull Thick As A Brick tour - '72
Deep Purple Machine Head Tour - '72
Led Zeppelin show in Tampa featured in the opening of Celebration Day - '73
All I can think of at the moment. Lost all my concert stubs to a hurricane.

Always tough to narrow it down, but here is a short list of some of my very favorites:

Funky Meters, Terminal West, 8/2/14--I may still be basking in post-show afterglow, but this really was one of the best Funky Meters shows I've ever seen, which automatically makes it one of the best shows I've ever seen, period. It would be a tough task to pick the best Funky Meters show I ever saw, so I'll go with this one since it's fresh in my mind.

Allman Brothers Band, 9/7/92 Atlanta and 10/4/09 Charlotte--My favorite show I saw with the Dickey/Warren lineup, and my favorite show from the Derek/Warren lineup. Very different shows, obviously, but both absolutely outstanding in their own right. The 92 show had a great acoustic set and powerful jams on Nobody Knows and Jessica. The 09 show had a laundry list of "best ever" versions of songs, from Revival to Rocking Horse to No One Left To Run With.

Santana w/ Los Hombres Calientes, New Orleans Municipal Auditorium, 1999--I saw lots of great Santana shows in the 90s, including several great ones at Jazz Fest in New Orleans, but this show with Latin jazz supergroup Los Hombres Calientes takes the cake. When Santana is hitting on all cylinders, there is nobody better.

Col. Bruce Hampton and the Aquarium Rescue Unit, Variety Playhouse, 10/17/92--This show is available on archive.org, and showcases everything that made ARU one of the best live bands of all time back in their heyday. I could pick any number of other shows from the 92-94 time frame, but of the ones I have recordings of, this may be the cream of the crop.

Soulive w/ Derek Trucks, 11/15/08, Bear Creek Music Festival--I love Soulive, and I love Derek Trucks, but even that doesn't begin to cover how much I love this show. Derek sits in for about half of the show and it's one of those rare occasions where a special guest elevates a band to a whole other level.

Derek Trucks Band, 4/12/03, Piedmont Park--Probably my favorite DTB show that I attended personally. Just a great time for the band and a very strong show all around. Derek and Kofi were a remarkable pair during this era of DTB, with Kofi's flute serving as the perfect foil to Derek's guitar.

Jame's Addiction, Music Midtown 2013--This one may raise some eyebrows, as I doubt many people on this site are fans of Jane's Addiction, but this was unquestionably one of the most powerful music experiences of my life. Probably as close as I'll ever come to hearing The Who or Led Zeppelin in their prime. Big, loud, epic rock music played at the highest level with intent and focus.

I am surely forgetting some others that are worthy of mention, but all these shows were ones that made a special impact on me.

My favorite show? Seeing Jack Pearson play in someones living room in Birmingham.

Dixie Dregs,wow,I could not believe Steve Morse w/Deep Purple (poss better than Blackmore)!
There's definitely lots of Petty fans around.My Nephew loves them.
I think Johnny Winter definitely made an Impression on any1 who saw him in his Prime.
Navarro from Janes Addiction seems the real deal...I prob should have seen him last tour.
I think seeing any of ABB in someones living room would be a possible 'religous experience' I saw the acoustic set w/ Dickey & Warren &....a bunch of Hells Angels.Def not something to be missed!
....and Derek in a small club w/ DTB was always memorable. I luved seeing them at LA's House of Blues...I remember dragging a bunch of people out there to see them,I was sooo enthused!! They were sorta stunned!

Its really interesting seeing others experiences & musical tastes.

My favorites usually relate to seeing bands at the peak of my personal fan-dom.

My first, Floyd at Atlanta Stadium. They were still doing DSOTM, but did play some of the as-yet unreleased Wish You Were Here songs under different titles, and had an airplane crashing into the stage, which was a tad cheesy. The whole scene made quite the impression on the 15 yo me.



Led Zeppelin, Omni, Atlanta, April 1977. I was, like many, a Zep freak for the whole of the 70's, and this was the culmination. Why I thought 2 black beauties were necessary for the show is beyond me. We paid $50 each for 8th row floor tix, which was 5x face, and I have no regrets.

The Clash, Fox, Atlanta, 1982. For a few years in this era, they truly were the only band that mattered to me. I loved their politically-savvy, angry lyrics, and still do.

Jason and the Nashville Scorchers and REM, 688 Club Atlanta, January 1983. From '81-'83, I spent nearly every weekend at this 300 capacity club, but on this cold night w/ an ice storm approaching, both bands just killed. Jason wrote Hot Nights in Georgia in honor of this show, or so I'm told.

JGB, Warfield, San Francisco, Jan 1991. My dad asked me along on a business trip, and unbeknownst to me got me two tix to this show as a surprise. I had no idea Jerry was playing at all. My only miracle ever, and from my dad. This happened right in the middle of my Deadhead period, so it was pretty special to see my only Jerry show at the Warfield. Pulled this handbill off a lightpole in Berkeley:

"Navarro from Janes Addiction seems the real deal...I prob should have seen him last tour."

He is, and you should. I've seen them 3 times now, and I honestly don't recall Navarro missing a single note. His chops are impeccable, and I like his tone and overall sound MUCH more than most hard-rock/heavy metal guitarists.

Stephen Perkins, their drummer, is another top shelf talent. Bonhamesque force mixed with intricate polyrhythms. He also has a world-music influenced band called Banyan that is pretty good and features Steve Kimock on occasion.

Al deMeola, there we maybe 500 people (Halloween Night). Al says to the crowd for everyone to move down front (I had perfect seats) then he blew the roof off the place.
King Crimson with the Strawbs, interesting line up.
Brownsfield Station opened for someone but they boogied for 1 hour plus straight.
This one was great, Leslie West with his new band. I don't think they had a name or it was never mentioned. It turned out to be West Bruce and Lang, one of their first performances as a band.
Rare Earth, everyone at that show wanted to be there so the place was on fire. A ton of people from Detroit in Miami of all places.
Quicksilver Messenger Service (shadow of what they once were) and the Doobie Brothers with Skunk Baxter (1974).
Focus they were great.
The Electric Light Orchestra they were great. A lot of people had no idea what they were like.
Santana and John McLaughen the Love Devotion Surender tour. I would get a bootleg of that concert 35 years later.
The best was Two Generations of Brubeck and Herbie Mann opened and then played with Brubeck.

Well you all went to alot more shows than I did in the early days but I do remember two that were sweet. I caught Bowie at the Tower Theater when he was recording David Live. Great show. And one that blew me away was Stevie Ray Vaughan at Blossom in Cleveland for what I believe was the Winston Jazz Festival. All day show but I remember Thunderbirds were there too and Stevie and Jimmy played one guitar with two necks with one sitting and the other standing behind.

Rob, digging that you mentioned the DTB Piedmont Park show, I really dug that one as well, just a great vibe and a free show down in the park. Musta been like the old days. When they performed in store at a now shutdown record store in Buckhead shortly after, for their EP release, I told Derek and the guys the same thing.

Also digging your love for Jane's. Fantastic live band, always brought the HEAT. Very true about Perkins and Navarro. All of them lucky to still be alive. Saw them in Athens spring 89 at the Uptown Lounge, heavy make up and sombreros for the Nothing's Shocking tour, then again a year or two later for the Ritual tour, at the Center Stage, then again for their Lolla farewell. Burning and churning every time. Up the Beach is such a perfect opener!! The first two are def on my tops list. Never saw them again for various reasons but my final song from them was perfect: Chip Away, with a line of drums across the front of the stage and all the Lollla bands drummers and other s pounding it out. "Cuz I'm not O-K!!" (Still to this day!)

EAPFPerry and the Boys!
