    Best Concert(s) You've Been To?

    What's the best concert you've ever been to, or concerts?

    Mine was Tool in 2006. Absolutely ******* incredible. No words to describe it. I go to tons of concerts and went to Paul McCartney this summer, which my friends all declared as the best concert they've ever been to. I had to be "that guy" and said "Yeah, very good, but I've been to better."

    If you like Tool and you've never seen them live, do yourself a favor and do it when you have the chance.

    1. 1993 Lollalapooza had Rage Against The Machine, Primus, Alice In Chains and oh, a little band named Tool was playing on the second stage that day. Rage was the first band to play and blew my head off, Layne and Alice In Chains were amazing and I was too lucky to move from the main stage when Arrested Development was playing and stumbled into Tool. Simply amazing day of music.

    Re: Best Concert(s) You've Been To?

    Lollapalooza 2 & 3
    Smashing Pumpkins at Hairy Mary's in Des Moines
    Jane's Addiction in Davenport, and agree with C. John Pearl Jam and the Peppers at CY Stephens, Smashing Pumpkins were on the bill too!
    Devo in Des Moines last year was up there, but that's because I waited 30 years to see them live.

    I was at that one as well. It was awesome and likely the best one I've ever been to. Seeing Metallica in Moline 3 years ago is a very close second.

    I saw (hed) p.e. in 2000, and it was amazing. I don't follow them anymore; they're a totally different band than what they were back then.
