PostPosted: Thu Apr 10, 2008 2:29 pm    Post subject: Best Concerts You Ever Been To.....

I started this topic because I found a youtube video of mine

Oasis Live at Maine Road in Manchester in 1996. IT ISN'T A RICKROLL SO NO WORRIES

http://youtube.com/watch?v=xwvoIPt5qYs&feature=related

I was just about to turn 18 and went up there and the show was on a Saturday. We were going to go up just for the day and take a train back and we ended up staying up there until the following Wednesday. Hard to believe that was 12 years ago and one of the guys I went with now has three kids. Time flies. We drank epic amounts and I will just end the story there....

I've been to so many, but for me Jimmy Eat World in October at HOB Anaheim was shockingly great.

Incubus - 2002 Morning View Tour... Front row seats, there were maybe two or three people in the whole place that had a better seat then us!

To make a long story short, I hung out with the band after the show and drank a (bleep) of SoCo with Dirk, the old bass player. They are a cool bunch of guys... the whole scene was crazy cool! The front row seats and backstage passes came courtesy of Dirk.

I love seeing this song performed live Sick Sad Little World

Dave Matthews and Tim Reynolds in Vegas was pure awesomeness. I'm glad the show was so great otherwise I would have felt bad about missing out on Trey Anastasio immediately after.

I have seen Pearl Jam live 9 times.

Also went with some friends to a Stones concert in like 1995 at the Rose Bowl and really enjoyed it, although not my favorite band.

Usually punk rock concerts at small venues. The band is very interactive with the crowd. Some band members even go into the pit w/ everyone else. Here are some of my favorites. I love watching concerts at the House of Blues especially.

RATM- at the DNC
Rancid- Wiltern
Morrisey- Wiltern
AFI- The living room
Social Distortion- House of Blues
Tiger Army- House of Blues

I've seen Social D 5 times, once in Vegas and 4 times in Cali, in Pomona, L.A. & OC. They're shows kind of get redundant though.

Rage Against The Machine at Rock The Bells last year was pretty amazing. The whole lineup was great, but Rage just owned the night.

The Beat's Holiday Cool Down way back when was incredible. The lineup was Slum Village, Talib Kweli, Jurassic 5, Raphael Saadiq, Gang Starr, Common and The Roots. Awesome show.

Nas @ House Of Blues 07

The Roots anywhere, anytime

Common @ The Wiltern 07

Talib Kweli @ HOB in January of this year

John Legend @ the Gibson at Universal 07

Brian McKnight & Joe @ Gibson 07

Ozomatli @ some plaza in Downtown LA a few years back

I'm really looking forward to the Glow In The Dark Tour. Pretty excited to see N.E.R.D., Lupe and Kanye.

I love N.E.R.D.... that first album was great! I've seen them live three times, once on the Sprite ReMix Tour with The Roots and Talib Kweli, and once with the Black Eyed Peas (the BEP were a lot better than I thought they would be, you almost forget Fergie is on stage (she barely got on the mic, and they did a lot of their old stuff like Joints and Jams).

Damn,
you must be into the concert scene then? That's like 150-200 concerts you've been to, if not more.

You got connections or something?
