Piedmont with the ABB last year was miserable to me as well. Disrespectful DMB fans, hot, etc

Typically, I don't attend concerts anymore unless they are at smaller venues, but back in the 80's when the "thing" was Stadium shows...... I went to a few of those. The largest was probably the Rolling Stones @ Jack Murphy Stadium in S.D. Thorogood, J.Geils & the Stones..maybe 50,000?

I still have a ticket stub from that show..

10/7/81

$15.00

Dave Matthews Band on the Great Lawn in Central Park. Well over 100,000 attended. Cortez The Killer with Warren sitting in was absolutely sick!!! Worth the price of admission even though it was free unless you wanted to make a donation towards NYC schools. Me and my friend payed $30.00 each to a worthy cause.

I attended a bunch of stadium shows in the '80s & '90s (some baseball and some football) so I've seen my share of 50K plus shows. Let's start with:

Carrier Dome, Syracuse, NY (concert attnd approx. 50K): Pink Foyd Oct 03, 1987 & June 06, 1994 : Billy Joel Feb 02, 1990 : Rolling Stones Sept. 1989 & Dec. 08, 1994 : Genesis June 07, 1992

Rich Stadium, Buffalo, NY (concert attnd approx 60-70K): The Who July 1989 : G 'N R / Metallica July 25, 1992 : Grateful Dead June 06, 1992 & June 13, 1993

Yankee Stadium, Bronx, NY (concert attnd approx. 50K): Pink Floyd June 10, 1994

Sun Devil Stadium, Tempe, AZ (concert attnd approx. 60-70K): U2 May 09, 1997 : The Rolling Stones Nov 07,1997 : George Strait Mar 06, 1999

Cardinas Stadium, Glendale, AZ (concert attnd approx. 60-70K): Rolling Stones Nov 08, 2006

Then, of course, there are the festivals that included the some of the biggest bands in the world at the time: Woodstock '94 (Les Claypool said "I am not very good with numbers but I can tell there's a sh*tload of people here." : Bonnaroo 2004, 2005, 2006, 2007 and the upcomming 2008 (each has sold out with at least 80K).

On the other end of the spectrum, I've also seen a few slightly smaller shows:

Tag's bar Big Flats, NY: Blackfoot, Rick Derringer & Ozark Mountain Daredevils Aug 26, 1994 From what I could guess was the most attended portion of the night, I counted 43 attendees at this waaay out of the way bar.

Strange enough, Bonnaroo was also the site of many low capacity shows at the Sonic Stage and Somethin' Else tent. Two intimate stages right in the middle of the 700 acre site, many are attended by fewer than 50 fans. ( David Murray Black Saint Quartet was great last year)

It's always nice to see a show in an intimate venue, where ideally you're up close and personal with the performer and the sound quality is superb. Bummer that it's not always in the budget or convienient. Therefore, we're sometimes forced to attend these big shows, but I've got to say that I've enjoyed everyone of them. And like many here, I've began compiling recordings of shows I've attended and contine to enjoy the memories of these grand events. Thank you, that is all.

400,000 + at the second Atlanta Pop Festival in Byron, Georgia in 1970. I saw the Allman Brothers play TWICE. Others saw them even more, because they also played a side stage outside the festival but on the other side from where I was camped.

Probably the concerts I saw at Roskilde festival in Denmark in the last couple of years: The Who, Dylan, Roger Waters, Queens of the Stone Age, Guns 'N Roses among others. Really packed. Must have been around 70-80,000 people there.

The Monstrers of Rock tour June 1988 @ Rich Stadium in Buffalo (now the Raplh Wilson statdium, where the bills play) Van Halen/Hagar, the Scorpions, Metallica Dokken and Kingdom Come (I think that was the line up) Place was insane crowded!

I went to several Grateful Dead shows there too (and a few I'm sure I'm forgetting)...always way over sold & a tad chaotic, but of course that was part of the ambiance back in those days!

Wish I could walk a few miles in your shoes. Some heady sh!t you've gotten to experience!

I attended Phish's Big Cypress NYE Y2K. Pushing 100,000. Impressive weekend. Phish played 5 sets of music, only band at a 2 day festival, only repeat was After Midnight. They ended their afternoon set on the 31st with After Midnight, then took the stage at Midnight and played for over 7 hours straight (one 10 minute break) until sunrise. About 4 in the morning they came back with a little After Midnight reprise.

Still blows my mind to think a band can take the stage after already playing 4 1.5+ hour sets and play another 7 HOUR set.
