Great topic for a thread!

Let's see...

Grateful Dead at Englishtown and the Meadowlands NJ. 4 hr concerts. Not just concerts but events, like mini Woodstocks, unforgettable.

Charlie Daniels Band and Marshall Tucker Band at the Capital theater Passaic NJ, small venue, not a bad seat in the house.

My ex was a big Live fan, saw them a bunch of times and they were always a really good live act.

Green Day twice. Can't beat them for sheer rock entertainment, get ready for a bunch of F bombs from Billy Joe, and don't expect to have normal hearing response for a day or two.

Some meh shows - Cheryl Crow, John Mayer, Counting Crows, Collective Soul, even Jimmy Buffet and other pop 90s crap, bleh.

James Taylor has always been top shelf, saw him numerous times, can't really compare.

More recently, one show that always stood out in my mind  - Audioslave. Right before they broke up they came to the House of Blues in AC. We got there early so we got a spot 20 ft from the stage. Chris Cornell comes out, puts his foot up on a monitor with this look like 'are you ready for this', and starts belting out 'Cochise'. I almost fell down from the force of his voice. Between Morello and Cornell I came away dazed. Amazing sound. I still have my wrist strap from that one.

Also some surprises - Chrissy Hines and her replacement Pretenders, she sounded great and had a bunch of F you sass. Also Gretchen Wilson (remember her?) when she was at her plateau, man she could really belt out some vocals.

Wow Q, the Eagles doing their first tour? I would give my front teeth to see (hear) that. And SRV? You're a lucky guy. I guess I should be content seeing the Dead during their heyday.

Wow, too many to name, going way back to when I was in a band and wasn't playing on weekends, these are spread out over the years but obviously I'm not young- Paul Revere and the Raiders (sorry) Steppenwolf, James Gang, Strawberry Alarm Clock, Iron Butterfly, Three Dog Night (3 times), The Who (with Keith Moon- 6 rows back drum sticks flying, and they really did destroy equipment) Led Zeppelin '68-8 rows back (ears are still humming) Grand Funk, Buffalo Springfield, then Poco (so I worked with a relative of Richie Furay and got to meet Richie and Timmy Schmidt- still friends wonderful people) Manheim Steamroller (Chip is my stepcousin, or was before my stepfather died) Eagles (for me tied for best concert with Led Z), Elton John, Chicago several times with Terry Kath) Sly & the Family Stone (only an hour wait for to show up, not bad) Ten Years After (Goin' Home was even better live) and several others over the years that I can't remember right now (the benefits of being in your 60's) when I think of them I'll edit, my wife and I have been married 45 years, she'll remember... :)
The Hollies, CCW, Guess Who (didn't like their stage personalities or lack of it) Gary Puckett &UG ha, Styx, Allman Brothers, Uriah Heap

Waaaay to many to mention all of them.  Several music venues that afforded the opportunity of seeing many Michigan bands that went on to greater fame.  A few of the more noteworthy concerts I remember:

Jimi Hendrix Experience.  Fall of '68, Cobo Hall in Detroit.  Nose bleed seats, felt the concrete vibrating under out feet.  Loud, cosmic, shell shocked.  
Grateful Dead.  Opening act NRPS.  Mar. '71, Jenison Field House (MSU).  Played for like six hours, until the EL police came on stage to shut it down.  Full tripp'in.  Heavy haze in the old barn.  
Motown Review.  Fox Theater, Detroit.  Temptations closing out the show with a 20+ minute rendition of Papa Was a Rolling Stone.  Funk Brothers churning the beat.  Hot, sweaty, exhausted.  Everybody in the house dancing.  Gawd it was marvelous.  
Lowell George era Little Feat.  '77ish.  Royal Oak Music Theater.  They were soooo good.  Tight.  
Stooges.  Summer of '69, outdoors at Mt. Holly ski resort.  WTF.  Who are these guys?  Primal.  Kids standing around with dropped jaws.  
Emerson, Lake and Palmer.  Opening act Yes.  Eastown Theater, Detroit.  Brain Salad Surgery era.  Emerson was a madman on the keyboards.  Giant MOOG.  
Jethro Tull.  Eastown Theater, Detroit.  Circa Benefit era.  Very unique.  Ian Anderson in top 'mad stork' form.  
Faces/Savoy Brown.  Every Picture era (early 71?).  Cobo Hall.  Savoy opening with the heavy blues, then the Faces ripping it up.  A rollicking fun show. Stewart was a such a good singer.  

Off the top of my head.  No longer attend concerts these days.  Sigh!!!

Went to a few shows back in college...

Pop Disaster Tour 02- Jimmy Eat World, Green Day, Blink 182
Eve 6, Goldfinger, Good Charlotte- Houston
Lola Ray, Sum 41, Good Charlotte- New Orleans
Art Garfunkel- this was actually a good show
The Temptations- came to a casino down here
Goo Goo Dolls

Was just talking this morning about the Family Values Tour that came to Biloxi in like 99. Staind, Limp Bizkit, and Korn, I missed that show but I really wish I would have gone. We have had quite a few big shows down here, I was just too young to appreciate it at the time. Metallica, Aerosmith, Tool, all came down here. I also want to say Elton John played down here but may be off.

Bunch of good shows in New Orleans, just about an hour away. I only have a few concerts that I would really like to go see...Billy Joel and Metallica are probably the two big ones. And for some reason I really want to see New Found Glory. They were part of my pop/punk rock days and I never got the chance to see them.

My first show was in 95', the first Vans Warped Tour. Deftones, No Doubt, No Use for A Name, Sublime, etc..

I'm a huge 311 fan.  I've seen them at least 100 times.  I attended 3-11 Day in Memphis and New Orleans, sadly I cant make it out to Vegas for this weekends 3-11 Day. The beach in St. Pete to Arco Arena in Sacramento.  Had tickets in Chicago in 05' but broke my leg 2 weeks before and couldn't attend.

Other shows include: Rancid, Green Day, Blink 182, Oasis, RHCP, Snoop, Luda, STP, New Found Glory, MXPX, Butch Walker, Australian Pink Floyd, Rob Zombie, Ryan Adams, Godsmack, The Wailers, Sum 41, Good Charlotte
all mostly in Atlanta. Most shows took place at Lakewood, Tabernacle, Masquerade, or The Fox Theatre.

DJ's: Paul Oakenfold, Paul Van ****, Christopher Lawrence, Christopher Kimball, DJ Micro, Baby Anne, Sasha, John Digweed, Chemical Brothers, etc...

I'll have to break out the old ticket book and reminisce.

Eagles was unreal, played that whole album and long oncore.

Depends on who you ask! Funny, looking back that I survived all those shows.

To see Stevie Ray live in a small venue is the holy grail of shows in my opinion envey you guys.
First show was deep purple in 84 was hooked,Prince and the purple rain tour was crazy in 84 also.
Too many shows 2 list but all-time favorites were primus at Ricks cafe in A2 in 91 right place at right time.
Soundgarden at St. Andrews hall,detroit 93,They were touring with guns &roses axel got in trouble in
St louis.  Detroit was next stop so Soundgarden did a spur of moment show General admission.

Where was the International amphitheater? Another poplar Creek concert, love it, Saw Asia there in 1982.

The International Amphitheater was located at 42nd and Halsted, near the Union Stock Yards. It was built in 1934, and ultimately torn down in 1999. It was initially built to host the International Livestock Exhibition, but was used for concerts, auto shows, and political conventions (52-RNC, 52-DNC, 56-DNC, 60-RNC, and 68-DNC). It was the home of the Chicago Bulls for their first season ('66-'67). The Chicago Cougars hockey team also played there from 1972 - 1975.

It really was a horrid place for a concert, with lousy acoustics. If I'm not mistaken, the floor was dirt, although they may have put plywood over it for the concerts.

Geez hard to believe I forgot this one.....Firefall, Marshall Tucker and Ted Nugent. Nugent was good but mild. Punched the mic once. Both Firefall and MT were excellent. The bass player for Firefall was like the most stoned person on the planet that night. Big ol' redshot eyes. Just stayed in one place looking down and once in a while looked up. If that was me I would of probably run from the stadium and hid in a tree.
