shows you wish you could attend again

Discussion in 'Miscellaneous [BG]' started by runmikeyrun, Nov 18, 2012.

  1. For me, the Megadeth tour a couple years ago with Rust In Piece played in it's entirety is definitely one I wish I could attend again.

    Tool on the Undertow tour.

    Primus at Ozzfest in Vancouver, early 2000s. Amazing vibe with 1000s of people all pogoing.

    Cave In, Jupiter tour, Euclid Tavern (Cleveland) with the best Dazed and Confused cover, ever.

    Carcass tour I saw a couple years back. Absolutely amazing.

    Green Day, Dookie tour, outdoor venue, spring, senior year, perfect weather, and all my friends were there.

    Obituary, Cleveland Agora, early/mid 90s. Most brutal show I've ever attended, two broken legs in the pit that night.

    Page/Plant, early/mid 90s. Amazing show. I still hate Rusted Root (they opened)

    Then a bunch of local shows that I saw as a teenager; too many to list.

    Steve Vai at the Chameleon Club here in Lancaster, PA a few weeks ago. I was front row right in front of Steve the whole show, and being in such a small club, it was just an amazing show.

    Mr. Big at the Metron club in Harrisburg, PA on their first tour. Got to meet and hang out with Billy earlier that day, just an awesome show.

    Motley Crüe 2011. I've seen them six times, but last years tour with Poison and the Dolls was the best I've seen.

    Day of Fire- a great band, saw them a bunch of times before they broke up. Wish they'd put out another album.
  5. Stevie Ray Vaughan in the UCSD college gym in '84 or '85.

    First Woodstock again, and actually get close enough to the stage to see the musicians. Oh, And actually be able to see what I was seeing, but then again, it was the 60s and seeing what you could see was not a requirement.

    Pearl Jam - Philly in October, 2003.

    It was some Mother Love Bone anniversary so they played a ton of rare stuff, including the 6th time they'd ever played Crown Of Thorns live. I didn't know enough of their deep cuts to fully appreciate the show at the time.
