    Not a concert per se... but I got sit in front of Little Feat as they rehearsed for an upcoming tour.

    That was memorable if only for the intimacy... It was just myself and a friend as the audience.

    I think the best concert that I've seen was Led Zeppelin at Earls Court in London in May 1975 - they sold out Earls Court for 6 nights in a row!

    Kashmir was incredible live!

    They sorta stunk both times.

    How old are you that you saw them twice? I was 12 when Bonham died.

    I have been to so many concerts, hard to name them all.

    Some of the more interesting ones were The Blues Brothers (Belushi and Akroyd) at the Universal Amphitheater in LA in the front row, could see Belushi’s spit clear as day. Joe Walsh at the Westbury Music Fair - won the tickets off the Radio. Genesis at Forest Hills Tennis Stadium in 1982 I think. Phil Collins multiple times but front row in the Hello I Must be Going at Universal Amphitheater (had connections there).

    Last show I have been to was Genesis last December, Phil is in tough shape but they still rocked it with his son playing the drums.

    Been to see Rush in Detroit, Cleveland, Baltimore, Charlotte, Raleigh, MSG, Jones Beach, Brendan Byrne, Nassau Coliseum, LA Forum, Greensboro Coliseum, Walnut Creek Amphitheater (some venues more than once)

    Also The Ramones could not count how many times in clubs
    Zebra the same
    Bad Brains
    Cro Mags
    Red Hot Chile Peppers
    Pink Floyd - no Waters A Momentary Lapse of Reason
    U2 - twice
    ELP
    Yes a few times
    Asia, before first album released and once as old men
    Rod Stewart
    Sammy Hagar
    Reo Speedwagon
    John Cougar Mellancamp
    Journey
    Fleetwood Mac
    10,000 Maniacs
    The Cranberries
    Twisted Sister
    Dio
    Ozzy
    The Kinks
    The Jackson’s Victory tour
    Billy Joel numerous times
    Paul Simon
    Elton John
    The Highway Men - great experience

    Being the good Dad took my girls to Carrie Underwood, Kelly Clarkson, Jonas Brothers. Miley Cyrus

    I went to setlist.fm and went through every show they played as listed on the website. The closest one I saw was Island Garden Arena in West Hempstead on 6/14/1968. Maybe that is the show Acad is referring to.[​IMG]

    I was just trying to look up where I saw that Floyd had played commack, and I may have it mixed up with stony brook. Couldn’t find anything for commack.

    I saw Floyd without Waters and Waters without the rest of Floyd. They will never get back together because Waters is a massive douchebag.

    Yeah, he’s nuts. Awesome songwriter and musician, but a control freak.

    I saw Floyd in 1987 at the Carrier Dome, I may as well have been in another state. It was still cool seeing them.
