What are the five "biggest" acts you've seen in concert?
And how would you rank them on "bigness"? My four "biggest" were Foo Fighters, Rush, Santana, and Steely Dan. I'd probably put Dan a solid #4. The other three are tricky. Hard to say how FF will be regarded later. I'd still probably put them #1.

1) Foo Fighters
2) Rush
3) Santana
4) Steely Dan

I don't have a big-time #5 but it would probably be Incubus. Borderline RNR HOFers.

Tough one...

1. Pink Floyd
2. Led Zeppelin (I wouldn't argue if you wanted to reverse 1 & 2)
3. Dave Matthews Band
4. Springsteen
5. Allman Brothers

Most here know that I'm a huge Steely Dan fan and I've seen them lots but I don't think they're as "big" as the above bands. Also I saw Kiss and Rush but it was before either of them got as big as they eventually did.

Zep over Floyd surely. Bruce over DMB IMO. Kiss and Rush are fine nos. 6 and 7.

The Dan's my all-time favorite too. I think they're "big" (and have been honored as such) but just sort of fringey.

1 Metallica
2 Guns N Roses
3 Garth Brooks
4 Pearl Jam

Hard to pick a 5th. The Allman Brothers, REM, Radiohead (before they were big), Phish, Panic. All kinda big, but not quite the draw as those other 4.
