    Friday OT: Best Show You've Ever Seen at an ISU-related Venue

    What is the best/several best show (not related to sports) that you’ve seen at an Iowa State-affiliated venue? Jack Trice, Stephens and Fisher, M-Shop, VEISHEA, whatever!

    For example:

    M-Shop – Tristan Prettyman was very good several years ago, as was Shannon Curfman.
    Hilton – Weezer
    Stephens – There have been several. Ryan Adams was good, but I really liked Madama Butterfly (an opera) and a version of Pride & Prejudice that was there this winter that was done as if it were an old-style radio show. The best thing I ever saw at Stephens, though, was when David Cross came for Homecoming about 11 years ago.

    OAR at Stephens.


    I don't think I'm alone when I say I'd like to see more and more planets fall under the ruthless domination of our solar system.

    Ever since I've been old enough to go to a show, they pretty much stopped doing them at Jack Trice. :(

    I actually fell asleep at that one. Circa 2004-5?

    Prince was the most impressive concert I've seen at Hilton.
    Mick Foley had a great lecture/story telling event at Stephens.

    CAKE at the M-Shop and the lead singer grabbed my girlfriends butt too. It was AWESOME! Circa 1997 I think.

    Hilton: Page & Plant
    JTS: McCartney

    I have since become a huge Pink Floyd fan and wish I could have seen them at JTS. I'm guessing that would have been my favorite.

    I'm not a huge concert guy, but Saliva at*VEISHEA was a pretty damn good time.

    Really all of the free VEISHEA concerts were fun. (Yep, even Mike Jones. Obviously terrible performance but the atmosphere was still incredible.)
