Tool- several times but the best was 1998 at UNO

Rage against the machine- UNO around 1999/2000, they turned on the house lights during "killing in the name" and from my vantage point, I saw the whole arena jumping up and down.

Melvins/Tomahawk at house of blues. Mike Patton is incredible.

Ben Harper/Live/stone temple pilots back to back to back at voodoo.

Queens of the Stone Age/ nine inch nails at Katrina voodoo on the Fly

Josh Ritter- can really tell he enjoys what he does.

I was at that show. Fricking rocked.

Best live show I've been to was Jane's Addiction 2 years ago. They killed. Close second is Galactic Tips uptown 98-99 New Years.

Humble Pie (just because it was so much fun)
Steve Marriott is one of my all-time favorite vocalists. I still have my old Humble Pie albums with Peter Frampton in the group. But the band was better with Clem Clempson.

Don't know if that's aimed at me but will reply since it probably was.

The thread is titled "Best live rock concerts you've seen". And I've seen MANY more shows than what I posted.

I LOVE a good rock/metal show and when I think about the best ones I've seen a bunch come to mind.

I was on the floor and I remember that

I have that as my number 1...It was December of 99. Was the last Saturday of first semester finals at LSU and my buddy and I got pit tickets for like 22 bucks on ebay that Thursday. Took my sociology final and drove home. fricking incredible.

Also awesome when they played Born as Ghosts and had the high beams coming from behind them on stage so that they all appeared as shadows.

Bruce Springsteen at Winterland on December 15, 1978. Two friends and I bought tickets from a scalper that we won a coin toss with to save $30 which was very important since alcoholic beverages were sold at Winterland. I wasn't a fan of Springsteen, and I still don't care for much of his music, but the performance was absolutely mesmerizing.

Among the other memorable concerts I attended were many of the Day on the Green concerts that Bill Graham staged at the Oakland Coliseum. It was pretty cool to get to see so many bands perform on a single day. Two of my favorites were back-to-back concerts involving the Who and Grateful Dead in Octoober of 1976. The first day the Grateful Dead opened and played about 3 hours, then the Who came on and played another 3 hours. The next day they did the same thing, but in reverse order. Both bands were at the top of their games, and you can imagine the crowd to see the Dead and Who in the Bay Area. It was a blast.

Another one I forgot about - Blind Melon at the Varsity in 1992 with a half full venue bc they were still relatively unknown.
