Default Best Live Concert You Have Attended?

Which was your favorite concert you have ever attended?

I have attended quite a few concerts but hands down my favorite live performance was a band called Local H. They are a two man band with a ton of energy. A lot of bands have solid albums but sound disappointing live. Local H is one of the few bands who always sound better live.

There are a ton of other concerts that were fun and provided excellent memories, but Local H is my number one favorite live band.

Bon Jovi from the Slippery When Wet days. Jon owned the stage. Cinderella opened. Fantastic twin bill.

Bon Jovi and Cinderella at the same show; that would have been solid back in the day! I saw Cinderella about three years ago and they were still great!

I know I am in the minority to state how Local H put on the best show I have been to. It would have been easier to convince people that other shows I went to were better; AC/DC, Nine Inch Nails, Motley Crue, Violent Femmes, Korn, Stone Temple Pilots, Cinderella, Kix, BoDeans, Sheryl Crow, Guns N Roses, Third Eye Blind, Cold, Everclear, Disturbed, and so on. They were all great concerts but truly Local H was the best.

Umm... birthday present from my girlfriend (now ex-wife).

On my birthday in July 1994. Assorted bands, but I wanted to see the Allman Brothers.

I know they were so much better in the 70's, but it was great hearing them under the stars at an open-air amphitheater. And Blues Traveler and the Black Crows and others.

Melt-Banana in 2002. Second time I saw them, first time seeing them with Dave Witte on drums, and first time they were opening with an early rough version of "Shield for Your Eyes, A Beast in the Well on Your Hand", which was to be their most common opening song for the next decade, but at the time was like: "WTF..... Ohhhhhhh!" (it has a very lite & groovy intro). And when I already thought I was watching the greatest thing that could ever be, they kicked it up a notch by playing an outrageous cover of My Generation.

Melt Banana would be great. On my list for sure.

Jeff Beck/SRV at the UIC Pavillion in 1989. Hands down the absolute best concert I'd ever been to, and I didn't really realize it until years later. I've been to many incredible shows, but this one really sticks out in my mind as one of those nights filled with something that was intangible, and electric. It was a spur of the moment thing too, as we'd (me and my friend Pete, the singer from Zoetrope) just got two tickets from a friend that couldn't go, so he gave them to us. We drove there kind of blindly, since I had no idea where it was (no GPS or Google Maps back then), and when we got there, we had to stop and ask a few people for some party favors, which when we finally found someone with some, were quite good. We get inside the venue as SRV is just starting his set, and thoroughly blew the roof off the place, then Jeff came out and proceeded to blow my mind with the Guitar Shop album done in it's entirety. Bozzio was a stand out too. For the finale, Jeff went into his quintessential blues rock "Going Down" when Stevie came out to join him mid-solo. Stevie brought the house down. Incredible mastery and intensity as Jeff looked on in delight and awe.

This video description says it's from the show I went to, but that's a false claim since Stevie came out mid tune with his guitar behind his head, but it's from the same tour.



About a year later when I heard the news, I took the day off of work, went to my favorite place in the woods, and carved a guitar with wings into a picnic table. I try not to be one of those "SRV is the greatest that ever lived" mouth breather twits, but **** me runnin, that dude could play a mean ****ing guitar.
