    Best concert you've been too.

    This weekend we went and saw Tom Petty in Minneapolis and it was one of the best shows i've ever seen. Got me thinking about some of my fav shows and curious what shows you guys have seen and loved.

    1. Paul McCartney
    2. Tom Petty
    3. Foo Fighters
    4. The Rolling Stones
    5. Eric Clapton

    Also, shows i wish i could/had seen.

    1. Pink Floyd at Jack Trice. I was only 15 I think and didn't know who they were.
    2. Fleetwood Mac, wasn't able to see them last week at WF.
    3. Mumford and Sons. I really want to see them live.
    4. David Bowie, I think he would be fun to see

    Re: Best concert you've been too.

    Mayhem about 4 or 5 years ago in Houston.

    Went to see Slipknot, but damn was Disturbed on their game that night and stole the show.
    Machine was on the second stage and killed it in that little parking lot.
    Five Finger Death Punch was just getting ready to explode and was also on the second stage.
    36 Crazyfists was pretty good too not that I think about it.

    Dragonforce was about the only let down and some how they got the main stage.... they sounded terrible live.

    Re: Best concert you've been too.

    Hands down has to be KnotFest in Somerset, WI last year even though I thought I broke my kneecap for 4 days until I got it x-rayed. Other notable concerts:

    Lazerfest 2009 (?) I think. Whichever one had Alice Cooper and Rob Zombie playing
    Slipknot/Slayer dual headline show in CR in I think 2004
    KISS/Skid Row/Ted Nugent show in 2000


    He who makes a beast of himself gets rid of the pain of being a man.
