    What was the best live musical performance that you were ever in attendance for?
    Whatever you think...

    Elton John at Boardwalk Hall, Atlantic City. It was awesome, and it took my mind off the Yankees being eliminated in the playoffs by the Tigers.

    Pearl Jam- Lollapalooza 1992, Saratoga Springs


    Edit: It probably wouldn't hurt to mention that the bill also included Red Hot Chili Peppers, Soundgarden, Ministry, The Jesus and Mary Chain and Ice Cube, but PJ was the clear standout for me.

    Since I've never been to a real concert, I'd have to say one of my high school Symphonic band concerts. We played Duel of the Fates and Sleigh Ride - both really fun if you're in percussion.

    Prince at the Allstate Arena (Rosemont, IL) in Summer 2004.

    My best friend came up from St. Louis to attend the concert and spend the weekend. One of the best times I've ever had.

    I'm going to break the rules again, since I'm never going to get points anyway. This one's too tough, so I'll pick a winner and a few runners-up:

    1. 5th Dimention - 1972 Saratoga Performing Arts Center. Those folks could SING!

    Runners up:
    Doc Severinson and his Big Band Tour- mid 90s.
    Simon and Garfunkle (reunion tour)
    Various ensembles, NY Conference All State at Eastman School of Music in Rochester, 2008. What the selected elite of the state's high school musicians can do collectively is beyond words.
    Let the kids play.

    At 16 years old, my older sister took me to this outdoor concert: September 8, 1974

    http://www.suitelorraine.com/suitelo...roosevelt.html

    Crosby, Stiils, Nash & Young
    Joni Mitchell
    Beach Boys
    Jesse Colin Young

    It was amazing.

    Also, all 14 Billy Joel concerts I have attended, (2 with Elton John), were all awesome and memorable.

    I think I'll go with Elton John at Madison Square Garden... I think it was '74.

    Fun.

    Springsteen - you could really pick a year from 1984 through 2008 over the 20 or so times I've seen him live..he's simply amazing in concert..seeing him live hs turned so many people I know from non-fans to fans.

    yeah, I was going to put Springsteen down as my pick also, but I think it was just where I was in my life at the time I saw Elton John that made me pick that concert performance.

    Springsteen is always great. It's a given.

    I saw a lot. One of my favorite memories was the weirdest triple bill ever imagined (at the Nassau Coliseum around 1972):

    Leo Kottke
    John McLaughlin and the Mahavishnu Orchestra
    Frank Zappa and the Mothers of Invention

    Most of those L.I. idiots were there to hear Zappa; they practically heckled poor Leo (who was amazing) off the stage. They were starting up on McLaughlin who then hit them with the gong opening from Birds of Fire and shut the place up; he got a standing O at the end. Zappa was pretty good, too. I think I and my friends were the only ones who walked in liking all three.

    Second was the summer that Springsteen was the LEAD-IN for almost every show at the Asbury Park Convention Hall; take your pick of J. Geils, Bee Gees, or The Byrds--Bruce was better than all of them. This would have been 1969 or 1970.

    My sister saw The Monkees live at Forest Hills in 1966 or so. The opening act was Jimi Hendrix.

    That's my nomination for the strangest pairing ever.

    I'm a huge Zeppelin fan and never saw them live. I've seen Page/Plant about 10 or so times at the Budokan in Tokyo, Wembley Arena in London and MSG in NY. These were my favorites of the many great shows I've seen.

    Honorable mention would be the ARMS Concerts in honor of Ronnie Lane to raise money for MS.

    Ouch. Tough one. I've been to a lot of concerts that were most enjoyable.

    But, I'm gonna have to stray away from concerts for my answer. Phantom of the Opera in Toronto, with Colm Wilkinson singing the lead. Amazing stuff.

    I've seen some great shows. Bruce Springsteen seems like he plays all night and the energy is unsurpassed. Chicago was probably the concert that was most faithful to the sound of their records. They were perfect. Buffett shows are an experience all on their own. Frank Sinatra was, well, Sinatra. But I saw him in the early 90s, so his voice was diminished. But his on stage presence was still, well, Sinatra.

    But my favorite, hands down, was the first time I saw Paul McCartney. It was his Flowers in the Dirt tour in 1989, which was his first world tour since the mid-70s, and it was my first opportunity to see a real live Beatle. I stayed in-line all night to get tickets (remember those days?) and had great seats (about 20 rows back on the main floor). The whole concert was an out of body experience.

    I envy all those who have seen Elton John, especially in the 70s. I'll get to an Elton concert one of these days!
