First.... Van Halen 5150

Worst.... Travis Tritt (was a birthday present to gf from her parents, I had little choice) edit... ClubMtv was the worst. I worked at the arena for both setup and tear down of set. Horrible.. BelBivDevoe, Rico Suave, Keith Sweat, and C&C Music Factory. THAT was the worst concert I ever attended.

Best... The Rolling Stones Steel Wheels in the New Orleans Superdome.

First - Garbage (Shirley Manson) ... it was amazing!

Worst - Celine Dion (I got roped into it by some conservative/girly friends ages ago... props to Celine, but it's just not my kind of music).

Best - without a doubt, it was Portishead. I was right at the front of the stage in a very small venue and it was such a trippy and intimate experience.

First AC/DC 1975 Canberra pub.. Bon Scott was the cockiest man on two legs, I swear he had a sock down his jeans

Worst: Don Maclean 1977. Great Music, but not big on personality

Best: 1976 Richie Blackmore's Rainbow. My first outing to the world of rock concerts. The air was hazy with dope smoke. The atmosphere electric. 19 years old and in rock heaven.

equal best: AC/DC 2008 what can I say? Just awesome!

First - New Order

Worst - Can't think of one that was particularly bad.

Best - David Bowie & Nine Inch Nails, because David Bowie gave me the tickets, sort of. He was in the studio at one of the local radio stations. If you called in during a certain time and David Bowie answered the phone, you won the tickets. I called in, talked to David Bowie, and won the tickets. :D

Honourable mentions to Iggy, Julian Cope, U2, Bowie, The Sundays, Tom Waits, The Smiths, REM, et al, etc.....

First, I honestly can't remember. I used to attend symphony concerts regularly when I was a kid, and went to see my share of local garage bands in high school.

Best, King Crimson at the Stanley Theater in Pittsburgh. 4th row center, Robin Trower was the warm-up group.

Worst, can't remember one I didn't enjoy.

First & somewhat memorable: From 1976 through 1979 attended all in Kansas City - http://www.lookatstubs.com/bands/summer_jam.htm

It's been a long time ago, and I experimented heavily with - everything. Regaeman Man

Worst: One of my favorite groups came on stage so blitzed they trashed four songs and stumbled drunkenly off the set never to return - ZZTop 1999

Best: Dan Fogelberg gives excellent entertainment, but the Beach Boys were quite awesome (and I was sober!)

If ya can't beat 'em... pay someone to do it for you.

The first concert was a festival with some has-beens.... Steppenwolf turned out not to be Steppenwolf at all I found out later... Tommy James was there too, it was also the worst....

I've never been dragged to a concert I didn't want to see

The best:

Clapton live in 1990 at Alpine Valley
Stevie Ray Vaughan the same night, the night before he died, his next to last show
Clapton and Robert Cray in 2007, 3rd row at the Staples Center in LA, a gift from my brother

and an incredible show from the most beautiful woman I have ever seen, not even in my musical
style, but she had everyone, including me, eating out of her hand.... SHAKIRA love9 live in October 2010

First was Stevie Nicks probably back in the 1980's.
Best is made up of the various ACDC concerts I have been to over the years.
Worst would have to go to Wolf Mother, one of the supports for ACDC last year.

WOW. Great thread! I see so many artists/bands I love mentioned here, King Crimson, AC/DC, Rainbow, Garbage, Robin Trower, Johnny Thunders,Aerosmith, many more.



First- Iron Maiden in 1985, I lost my virginity afterward too, LOL

Worst- Black Crowes, I really like them but the sound was awful and they were sooooo boring

Best- Pink Floyd in 1994, Roger Waters Wall Concert in 2010, Roger Waters Dark Side Concert in 2006..........kind of a theme here, LOL.

Although so many other great concerts!

First: Smashing Pumpkins and Garbage

Worst: Bob Dylan. It was a small place and the acoustics were terrible. I love Dylan but that show was awful.

Best: Ani DiFranco. I'm not really an Ani fan and just went to the show with a girl that I liked. I think my low expectations made her have to win me over. And win me over she did. She absolutely blew me away. Ani has amazing stage presence. What a performer!
