I also love Santana in concert. Saw them twice
What was your Favorite Concert and what concert you wished you were there.
I have enjoyed most of all the concerts I have been to. Those that I wish I could have seen or hope to would include:
The best concerts that I have been to are
Tori Amos - when she toured with Alanis Morisette. My brother and I were given front row seats by someone who claimed she was "with the band" It was great. I've seen her live many other times too, but it's always better up close.
Reel Big Fish at the State Theatre. It was a smaller venue and Reel Big Fish is such a happy upbeat type of environment. They know how to work a crowd without moshing and violence. In fact if you mosh they will stop playing. Everyone goes and dances.
Orgy was another good concert with Placebo opening back in 1999.
Concerts I wish I would have been to...well I wish I had been old enough to go to see the Cure, the Smiths, Echo and the Bunnymen, Skinny Puppy or New Order in concert.
The worse concert I've ever been to was Dope, Static-X, and Powerman5000. The whole venue was a giant mosh bit and my brother and I ended up leaving in the middle of Static X bloodied and dirty. The others we were with who wanted to go to the concert stayed behind. It was awful. The first band started off by cussing the police. It was riot atmosphere.
They Might Be Giants
AWESOME show! They are just so fun. Not to mention it was a beer festival in downtown minneapolis. So it was outdoors, and then it started to rain, but that just made it more fun!! (Tho wet undies are usually cause for serious distress--the music kind of took your mind off it!)
Also downtown Minneapolis. It was a free concert and there were solid people for block upon blocks...it was awesome!!
I wish I would have gotten to see Nirvanna, but alas I was like 14 when Kurt died. Don't think my parents would have gone in for that concert.
Favorite - Rolling Stones, Cleveland Stadium, I think it was 1990. I'm not even that big of a Stones fan, but that concert was incredible. Mick Jagger and Keith Richards are a hard act to beat.
I would've loved to have seen The Who, Led Zeppelin, and the Allman Brothers back in the day.
Remember the group America? The music wasn't anything memorable...it was the "experience". I was in my early 20s, wearing a white tube top and lace up jeans, with my sister-in-law (then best friend, now not on speaking terms), and we were at the Greek theather in LA, and we just had a few beers and danced through the whole concert, in the dry, warm Santa Anna winds....that innocent youthful joy, that was what made it special.
