It would have to be one of three that were all equally good in their own ways. Warren Zevon on the, I think, Learning to Flinch tour in 1991 at The Vogue in Indy. Also at the Vogue in 1991, Melissa Etheridge touring in support of the then unreleased Brave and Crazy album with the Smashing Pumpkins opening for her. And, of course, Lollapalooza 2 featuring Ministry and The Jesus and Mary Chain outside of Chicago.

Ditto.
Excellent show. Great band. I'm waiting for a concert DVD if they ever make one I'm there.

Runner-up:
U2 Zoo TV tour. August '92. Foxboro, MA.
I used to just kinda like U2, but they really won me over live.

admittedly, i'm not one for concerts; I'd rather enjoy the music of a house band at a bar than a concert.

In any case, i thoroughly enjoyed JEFF HEALY play the downtown Barrie "NEW YEARS EVE" outdoor concert.

I saw several "day on the Green" concerts at Oakland Stadium in the late 70s. I can't remember particulars (too much pot and other intoxicants), but one had Journey, Boston, the Scorpions, the Babys, J Geils and Southside Johnny and the Asbury Jukes - that one was good.

Weird Al at the Toledo Zoo.

Of course, I've only been to two concerts, that one and Smash Mouth at Paramount's King's Island. So the choices are limited.

Neil Young. Seventh row center. Mushrooms. "Rockin' in the Free World" rocked my world.

Lowest of the Low. Marquee Club. They'd broken up ten years before (right after I'd discovered them), so this show was one I always wanted to see but never thought I would. I sported a massive shit-eating grin the whole time.

Beck. Molson Amphitheatre. He's only 12 inches tall, but that white boy can move.

My answer NOW would be Coachella 2004 because of the where my life has led me since then with Serena... that and was WAS quite an awesome show.

Before last year, I'd always said it was the Sextacy Ball Tour from 1995 featuring LORDS OF ACID, MY LIFE WITH THE THRILL KILL KULT, DINK, and GOD LIVES UNDERWATER. It was during my taking drugs phase and let me tell you, those walls were breathing and the building swallowed us up and spit us out by the end of the night. I left that show soaking wet and I STILL don't know how.

Runner up was the free DEAD MILKMEN show I saw in High school when they were touring for Beelzebubba and the Punk Rock Girl single. Great show and it was FREE!

I've been to very, very few concerts live in my lifetime, but I'll give the nod to Chicago's joint concert with Earth, Wind and Fire earlier this month in Virginia Beach. Great music of course, and the lead singer of EWF creeped me out with his great rendition of "If You Leave Me Now".

That WAS a really good concert. Afterwards my friend and I found the place where his bus was parked and got to talk to him (and get autographs!) through this gate. It was like a prison or something. He was really nice, too.
