Quoted from fireball2:

OMG. Reseda, right?

It's Perkins Palace In Pasadena. Nice place. At least it was....

There I saw-
Gary Myrick and The Figures
The Jam
GnR
TSOL

Maybe some more..

#402 3 years ago

A fun one was watching Missing Persons getting boood opening for Stiff Little Fingers, then go on to sell millions of records.

Stiff Little Figures still has a cult following today.

Wasn't a big fan of the warm up band, but I'll admit Terry Bozio was an awesome drummer.

Another time Huey Lewis and the News opened for Gary Myrick at the Roxy. Turns out they would go on to sell quite a few records too.

#403 3 years ago

Pantera / Corrosion of Conformity - 2001 Festival Hall, Brisbane (my first concert beyond local punk shows)
Mark Lanegan 2010 The Zoo, Brisbane (awesome solo acoustic show)
Mudhoney 2011 The Zoo, Brisbane (thankfully some youtuber filmed my stage dive when they played touch me i'm sick -

)

Honorable mentions - The Stooges and Jane's Addiction.

#404 3 years ago

Going with SPIRIT in 1970, right after the release of The Twelve Dreams of Dr. Sardonicus.
What made it really great was it was at small venue called the Hollywood Palace in Catonsville MD area and I don't think there was even 350 people there that night due to weather. Name was changed later to Coast To Coast..

#405 3 years ago

White Zombie. Pantera opened.

#406 3 years ago

Hard to pick a #1 best, but there have been a few. The Tragically Hip in Moncton was my first big concert (even though I'd seen them at smaller places before that, when they weren't as big), so that's memorable. I saw Victoria Williams in London UK and she was great.

I also saw Sleater Kinney at King's College in London and it was kind of surreal. The show itself was great. It was in a small venue, just a college cafeteria. Jarvis Cocker walked up and stood right beside me with a small entourage hanging around behind him, and Elliot Smith was drinking alone at the bar.

#407 3 years ago
Quoted from fireball2:

OMG, That was the highlight of the old DEVO shows, daddio! It was truly rock and roll live!
That was my fave part of the show!

My band played with Primus @ Cal Poly SLO in early 80's.
Gang of Four. Whoa. Ain't heard that name in awhile. TonioK? Really? Live?
Woulda loved to see Michael in his youth!

I know he's not very popular on Pinside, but Michael Jackson performing live BEFORE Thriller came out was pretty insane. He was a live wire. All energy, charisma and style. And he was still black...which to me is a big plus when it comes to Michael. My god he became so weird and unwatchable.

Quoted from fireball2:

OMG. Reseda, right?

Pasadena. There was another "showplace" like that in LA, where I saw ABC on their first US tour...but the name escapes me. I saw Buzzcocks open for Soiuxsie (?) and the Banshees at the Santa Monica Civic...or was it Long Beach?

OH! and Otis Day and the Knights in lower Zellerbach plaza on the UC Berkeley campus in 1983. The crowd was swelling pretty big and Otis refused to come onstage for some reason. He got there eventually and it was a fun show. Saw X on the Berkeley campus as well...plus a "hazy" reggae sunsplash at the Berkeley Greek.

#408 3 years ago

I wouldn't say this was the best show, but it was pretty damn good: 1989, Paul McCartney at the LA Forum (7th row center) kicking off his first tour ever focusing on Beatles material. Hadn't toured the states in over 10 years. His band was amazing and so was he. Played ALL the favorites. When he ripped into Sgt. Pepper the roof nearly blew off. Saw the same show later on tour at CAL Memorial Stadium in Berkeley. Much bigger show, and farther away, so less impactful.

#409 3 years ago

I have been to several but the best was my sons in high school.

#410 3 years ago

I guess this crowd would not want to hear about the Yo-Yo Ma concert I went to.

Third row - dead center.

I could see the maker stamp of his cello through the F-hole

Most Excellent!

I've been to hundreds of concerts, so this is a tough one. My wife and I love to do concert photography, combining two of our passions - music and photography. A lot of the artwork in our house is large-scale prints of our concert photography. If I had to pick one concert, I think I would say U2 at an amphitheater in Chicago in the early 90s. Nearly the entire audience was singing along with every song. The energy and love was palpable - it was pretty magical. We have seen lots of other great shows like Nine Inch Nails (amazing light show, staging, and intense performance), Duran Duran (high energy shows with lots of crowd participation), Buddy Guy (amazing Blues performer), Devo (seen them over 20 times throughout the US), and many many more. Thanks for starting a great thread!!

Cheers,

West, Bruce & Laing. Both W&B played thru multiple double stacks of Marshall 4x12 cabs and multiple 100 watt amps--sound that just pinned you to your seat and scrambled your liver and pancreas. None of that empty cab crap just for show that later became popular...

#413 3 years ago
Quoted from o-din:

I just watched it again for the first time in 36 years. I'm glad somebody was actually filming that night.
» YouTube video

That concert took place practically down the street from me. Pretty cool that you were there.

Quoted from Rockytop:

Guns n Roses and Paul McCarney stick out to me.

McCartney definitely stands out for me as well, and is probably my favorite concert ever.

Other stand outs include Pink Floyd, and for pure fun Steve Miller.

Quoted from rotordave:

Seen some great shows.
Probably the best of all was Skid Row, playing in front of 1500 at Logan Campbell Centre, Auckland, 1990.

I saw Skid Row in concert as well, and I think it was right around that same time. They were the opening act for Aerosmith. The crowd seemed to enjoy them. I didn't.

Speaking of Aerosmith, I have little memory of their performance, but damn, one thing that really stands out is all the hot chicks that were there. I mean smoking hot chicks like I've never seen at any concert before or since.

Quoted from TheFamilyArcade:

I wouldn't say this was the best show, but it was pretty damn good: 1989, Paul McCartney at the LA Forum (7th row center) kicking off his first tour ever focusing on Beatles material. Hadn't toured the states in over 10 years. His band was amazing and so was he. Played ALL the favorites. When he ripped into Sgt. Pepper the roof nearly blew off.

Wow! That's the same show that I was at. Damn amazing concert. The buildup/hype was very high for me, and McCartney delivered!

I was actually in the FRONT row, but off to the far side. And yes, that will definitely make a huge difference in how much impact the concert has on someone.

#414 3 years ago

Can we only pick one? That's tough. Rush was fantastic. I really like Shinedown, and they are great live, but by far the best overall show I have ever seen has been Muse. The sound, the stage presence, the props, and holy crap the lighting was incredible. Everything about this show was incredible. Just a phenomenal, non stop 2 1/2 hour show.

If you can find a good quality video of the Drones tour, do yourself a favor and watch it. My crap phone videos don't do them ANY justice.

#415 3 years ago

Queensryche, 1986 or so, Mindcrime tour. Warrior Soul was the opening band.

#416 3 years ago
Quoted from RobT:

Yes it was. We stopped at Naugles on the way home. Is Raincross Square still there? It was a heck of a place to see that show.

#417 3 years ago
Quoted from Playmatic:

Just got back from seeing Ween play tonight!

How were they? I have tickets for October, super pumped!

#418 3 years ago

After reading this I want to go back in time and become best friends with fireball2, what band were you in back in the day that played with primus?

#419 3 years ago
Quoted from o-din:

Yep, Raincross Square is not only still there, but they did a huge renovation a few years back. Bigger and better than ever.

#420 3 years ago
Quoted from practicalsteve:

what band were you in back in the day that played with primus

We were called Search for Food. There was some sort of "Students For Peace" or some thang that got a buncha local bands and a few out of towners together for two nights @ Cal Poly SLO in this little loungy thing they used to have between the bowling alley and the pizza place. I'll dig up the (ripped) poster I have one of these days. This had to be like '84 or something. I forget, but there was some other "later to be sorta famous" band that played too, I think. Anyway, as I (hazily) recall, they were kinda hyper and more than kinda drunk, just like we were. I don't think they had been together very long at that point. We were sorta known to be loud, but we couldn't hold a candle to them. Also, they were also pretty shreddy already too.

#421 3 years ago
Quoted from practicalsteve:

Wait Ween is playing in the bay area ? I gotta go look. 12 Country Golden Greats is like one of my fave records of all time. Also Chocolate and CHeese.

Quoted from beepnutz:

seen a few bands since the early 70's

HOLY Shheeeeeeeettt, i've been to a heap in 28 years BUT FFS
Can we change this thread to the one's we regret missing out on Odin??

My one biggest regret is never seeing Queen live Ahhhh Freddie, no-one will ever get close to your awesomeness.

#424 3 years ago

Freddie Mercury grabbed the audience from the moment he took the stage and never let up, backed by a phenomenal band. The early years were darker shows, which I loved, Freddie changed from black to white, Brian played with that sixpence pick on his homemade guitar and reveled in no synthesizers. Deacons base and Rogers drums propelled the band, perfect. The audience sang every song, shows were electrifying, you left with goosebumps.
Freddies vocal range will never be matched, one of the best frontman, simply amazing.

ps. great/fun video, hadn't seen it before.

#425 3 years ago

Lou Reed opening up for Peter Gabriel in the mid-nineties at the Beacon theatre, second row wasn't too bad. Peter Gabriel at the Bottom Line supporting his first post-Genesis solo album when Robert Fripp joined them on-stage for "Here Comes The Flood", both amazing shows. OMD supporting their very first album was amazing. Too many to choose from, like trying to pick your favorite pinball.

Buddy Guy is an awesome performer alright. Super charismatic, and an incredible energy for his old age.

#427 3 years ago

+1 for Buddy Guy. That 100 ft. cord and him playing right in front of me, I'll never forget that. Amazing showman.

I've seen that too. Not sure if had a wireless or a 100 ft cord though, but he got down from the stage and played some crazy solo while walking around the whole venue. He was about 70 years old at the time.
I saw him again a couple years ago here in Quebec City and he was mesmerizing just chatting between songs and the show was going great until he had some virtuoso kid play half his set for him. Kudos to the kid, he was a great player for his age, but no Buddy. That kinda sucked.
But the first time I saw him at the Showbox in Seattle about 2005, wow.

#430 3 years ago

I saw him in 1994. Definitely 100 ft. cord. He didn't play the whole show with that cord, but when it came out, the audience went bonkers. I remember his sweat getting on me ; thought that was cool af.

#431 3 years ago

Emerson, Lake and Palmer. When they opened with Peter Gunn, we were just blown away.

#432 3 years ago
Quoted from o-din:

Just that you were able to remember them all makes my head spin.

I used to photograph a lot and kept most of my ticket subs, helps with my aging memory. I do remember different things from most shows, Lollapaloozas, not so much, cept that I had a good time.

Quoted from Gryszzz:

+1 for Buddy Guy. That 100 ft. cord and him playing right in front of me, I'll never forget that. Amazing showman.

He learned that shit from Albert Collins. RIP.

I remember Albert going outside the bar and playing in the middle of the road outside Antones in 88

Beepnutz , That's a lot of bands. I have been to see a lot of shows since the early 70's myself and my list has a lot of similarities to you and a lot of differences. Some differences include Bruce Springsteen (20 shows) , Rolling Stones -2 , U2, Pink Floyd, Steely Dan, Live (3), Counting Crows, Police , REM, Killers, Billy Joel, Elton John, Kinks, and several more. Put our 2 lists together and we have covered a lot of music in the last 40 years.

Saw Billy in the 90's sometime, without checking my ticket stubbs (YES Beepnutz i do that too) i can't remember the date or the name of the tour but it was AWESOME!!

Jimi Hendrix
Janis Joplin
Beatles
Modest Mouse
Built To Spill
Belly/Breeders/Tanya Donelly
Buried Alive
Cactus
Dada
Dandy Worhols
Daniel Dax
Deep Purple
Deerhoof
Donovan
Emerson Lake and Palmer
Gong
Gordian Knot

Haven't been to a lot of shows but the most memorable was Ozzy at the old Boston Garden in '82. It was right after Randy Rhoads died and everyone thought the show was going to be cancelled. It wasn't and was a great show. I still have my concert tee.

1. The Who - Foxborough, MA 1989 - Played a 3.5 hour show that included the entire Tommy album

2. Keith Richards - Orpheum Theatre Boston 1992 - Soul Asylum opened. What a great subsection of the Stones fan base!

3. Pink Floyd - Foxborough, MA 1987 - Perfect sound!

So i'm curious now. TheLaw and TravisRT1985, did you down vote Beeps post out of pure jealousy?? not only does that make no sense it also sucks better than any Dyson!!!. I would have loved to see MANY bands he has had the chance to view (notably Queen and Zappa) but that don't make me green in the gills ffs. Would you guys have been just as narky if i had of listed all the bands i've been lucky enough to see?

Halestorm played in NZ last December.

Didn't they go to Aussie? I know they have been there before.

Lzzy is very impressive live. The music is much heavier than the albums too.

Saw Slayer and Pantera n Pantera's last tour. Saw Slayer a couple times and always a good time but I'll always remember Pantera hitting the stage to Hellbound.
That was back in 2001and I must have been a little drunk so it's all really fuzzy, but Iike.to tell myself it was awesome.
Pretty sure it was.
Also, we had tickets up in the seating area but we slipped a security guy 50$ and he let us down into the standing section.

Yeah they did mate but it clashed with another concert i already had tickets for, was bloody FILTHY about it too, lol. Just the way the cookies crumbled, already had the other tickets before Halestorm were even announced.
