    Oooh, tough call. I saw STP open for Aerosmith. That was pretty awesome. My first concert ever was Metallica, and they put on one hell of an amazing show! And earlier this year I saw the Dropkick Murphys ...yet another kick-*** show. But honestly, I'd have to say the best show I ever saw was Trans-Siberian Orchestra in the Saenger Theater in New Orleans in 2006. That was simply awe inspiring. :)

    This year, Heart opened for Def Leppard. We were in the grass in the back but it still rocked.

    For the small shows, Bob Schneider rocks it.

    I guess I haven't seen many live shows. I think my favorite was Jason Aldean at the Inn of the Mountain Gods in Ruidoso, NM. I loved it because my fiance then, wife now and I went with a couple friends and had a cabin all to ourselves. The show was before he was at the top and it was incredible. Very intimate compared to the Tim McGraw concert I went to in Albuquerque with my sister.

    I've got Trans Siberian Orchestra on my bucket list though.
     
  9. You old people. Crazy!

    I went and saw Shinedown, 10 Years, and Seether at Buzzfest in Nashville. It was awesome! I also went and saw the Trans Siberian Orchestra in Nashville too. They were pretty awesome as well.

    And I was 25 (1991), at the El Rey Theater in Albuquerque, watching my all-time favorite show, the Red Hot Chili Peppers just before they made it big. It was the Mother's Milk album tour. Got to say Hi to Flea at the after party...
    Other great shows over the years:
    Toadies and Reverend Horton Heat, Sunshine Theater, can't remember the exact year. Not long after Possum Kingdom was released. Butthole Surfers headlined that show, but they sucked.
    Hoodoo Gurus, late 80s, The Living Room, Providence. Epic small club show from a great indie surf-rock band nobody remembers.
    NoFX, last year, Sunshine Theater. Never too old to mosh! The Decline about killed me, but I stuck it out until it was over...
    Bone Daddies, mid 90s, El Rey Theater. Best show from a band nobody's heard of. The Dance floor literally collapsed that night, with a couple hundred of us on it. Insanity.
    Tool, 2003, Tingley Coliseum, Albuquerque. shiatty venue, but Maynard made up for it

    :D

    I was 4 rows back for the Evanescense concert I went to (lots of goosebumps n chills from that one, something about Amy Lee's voice that just does things to me...)

    Then about 6-8 rows back for Avenged Sevenfold, Papa Roach, Buckcherry (TERRIBLE), and Rev Theory on the floor...slightly off center, so that I wasn't in the mosh pit lol

    all of my other concerts have been nosebleed seats but enjoyed them just the same.

    musicals though, they were pretty fun, I've actually got season tickets to our local musicals tour, we're in row H so, 8 rows back, that's pretty good.

    oh yeah, and in 91, I was.....5th grade? yeah, sounds right....

    Back in '08, I went to the Theory of a Deadman, Hinder, and Staind concert in Nashville. I didn't really care much for ToaD or Hinder, but Aaron Lewis/Staind was great. That man has talent.

    It would probably have to be "HR" at "The Strand" in Redondo Beach - always been a huge Bad Brains fan but it was incredible to see the man doin' his solo sh!t up close and personal.

    About 3 years or so ago I saw Devildriver in Orlando. They had Goatwhore open for them. Such an awesome show, place was packed. That is also where I decided that I wanted to date my GF whom I'm still with today! Nothing says I love you like Death Metal.

    I am a TOOL whore so I would probably have to go with tool. I saw them right after 10,000 Days came out and it was a pretty epic show. However I wasnt very impressed with the opening band called "melt banana". However at the end of the show the two drummers had a drum off of sorts which was very amusing to say the least. Danny Carey has a beast of a drum set and could fill up an entire room with it. The other drummer had a tiny set, like 4 pieces maybe 5. Danny would play some long technical piece and the other drummer would just retaliate with some fast almost punkish kind of drumming that faintly resembled what Danney played, or atleast to the best of his ability with such a tiny set.

    Second best show I have probably seen was a band called Stabbing Westward. They had a few hits in the late 90's, but I still like their music. I saw them sometime around 95 at a free concert for a 4th of July and was very impressed, and saw them a few more times after that. Always lots of energy at the shows.

    First and foremost, was an extremely small venue of 15 people to see Michael Graves (The Misfits '97 -'01) do an acoustic session in my hometown.

    Second, would be Flogging Molly and Dropkick Murphy's in a tie.

    Third, The Toadies last year.

    Best show in recent history - Aerosmith a few years back here in Chattanooga (Nine Lives tour)
    Best experience at a show - Kansas in 1983 in Birmingham (I'm old!) (Old friend of mine was good friends with the band and we spent quite a bit of time with them after the show)
    Most fun - Mother's Finest around '79 in Clearwater Beach, Fl (told you I'm old) (outdoor show that had a rain delay and mudpit afterwards...I might have been slightly under the influence...)
    Best show I wish I could remember - Queen at the Omni in Atlanta in '81 (pretty wasted when we got there and drank all thru the show..:tears2:....did stab my eye with a swizzle stick though...)

    I've seen Tool as well. Hands down the worst show I've ever been to. I was in the pit for the whole show. Instead of rocking out the entire pit just stood there and watched the video screens that were, essentially, just showing music videos while Maynard and the rest of the band stood in the shadows and played. Absolutely zero stage presence.

    Tool was my first concert, saw them here in Knoxville back in 03 I believe and it is still my favorite to this day. A close second was Korn a few years ago, they played the Tennessee Theater in downtown Knox. I liked it alot because i was about 9 rows from the stage and I didn't have to worry people moshing lol

    I am supremely jealous of those concerts. And I'm 25, I just appreciate good music.

    Best concert for me was a local band holiday concert thing at the Ogden Theater in Denver (small venue) and maybe 100 people showed up. It was all acoustic and the bands/singers were One Republic, The Fray, Flobots, Bop Skizzum, and Matt Morris. Very intimate setting and not a single microphone was used.


    Close second was journey with Arnel Pineda at Red Rocks

    agreed. my coolest show was probably august burns red and the headliner between the buried in me. between that concert, and the concert with darkest hour as headline, arsonists get all the girls, winds of plague, iwrestledabearonce and maybe some other smaller bands. if you don't leave sore, you didn't rock out properly

    Tool is not a band you go to see for amazing stage presence. There will not be any running, jumping, or interacting with the crowd really. Hell maynard disappeared behind the stage during one entire song when I was at that show. The rest of the show he stood on a small stage beside the drummer in front of a video screen so all you could see was his silhouette. I think he might have sat on the ground at one point, but cant really remember. I saw them another time after Aenima came out and they attempted to put on a "show" and it just felt wrong. About halfway through the show maynard sat down on the stage (I think he was down to nothing but his shorts at this point) with his back turned to the crowd and in my opinion that was the best part of the show. He was able to sing the songs true to the album. For me its just a matter of seeing my favorite band in action playing some of the best songs on earth to the best of their ability. Also, there arent too many shows I have been to where you get to see one band get up there and play for almost 3 hours, and do it well. Rush is probably the only other band I have seen do that, and I saw Coheed and Cambria put in close to 2 1/2 hours one time, but claudio and travis came out after the main set and did about a 45 minute acoustic set with just the two of them.

    This is a vid from the 10000 days tour, so the same setup from when I saw them as far as screens and lights and the first couple minutes of this vid is about as much as your going to see any of the members of tool move around unless maynard walks off stage during a song. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YthGb-5Au-w

    It's a shame ATR is no more. Unless they found a new vocalist?

    I think their vocalist suffered from what the vocalists of bring me the horizon, avenged sevenfold and bullet for my valentine all suffered: screwed up vocal chords from screaming so hard. avenged sevenfold's vocalist puked blood on the stage a few years ago, so their style changed. so, it wouldn't surprise me if ATR kept the same vocalist and just slightly altered their style to be a little softer kind of like avenged sevenfold did.

    I find nothing at all about shadows puking blood, he had a ruptured blood vessel removed from his vocal chords, not from any damage to his vocal chords at all, and that was in 2004, the change in their style according to the interviews I've seen had nothing to do with his voice, but rather growth as a band, as well as pressure from the label (and a hell of a lot better album sales, and touring, radio play, etc).

    Last I heard atr's singer became the new lead for suicide silence since Mitch lucker passed. That's what I was referring to.

    I dont think you could replace Mitch..his vocals were one of a kind. I used to be a huge ATR and Avenged fan but since they have started making softer music, I just cant listen to them anymore. Too many bands sound the same these days.

    Didn't ATR bring in a new vocalist? Well, their older original vocalist? I haven't kept up with them in a while.

    Nvm, I'm thinking about Killswitch.

    See I've liked both as well, hail to the king got a little out of my happy range, but, it's also their first album without the rev, and that is a huge change in the creative process...not to mention their new drummer that's nowhere near as talented as the rev was...

    As for ATR, I've liked their stuff up through the new album, which is odd cause I generally don't like screamy stuff...
