Best/Worst concerts

Sorry if I am duplicating. DH and I were reminiscing about best and worst concerts we have ever been to; what are yours?

Best:
Bruce Springsteen- just awesome, so many hits
Huey Lewis and the News- fun
Glen Campbell- saw him this past summer at an outdoor theatre. He is in the early stages of Alzheimer's . He played with his son and daughter. One of the sweetest concerts ever.


Worst:
James Taylor-I felt like we keeping him up from a nap
Hank Williams Jr. He was so tanked he forgot the words to his songs...we all had to help out
Michael Buble- obnoxious foul mouth. Kind of diappointing

Im never been much of a concert guy, but in the 80,s I saw most of the big names and didnt really like any of them , rather just listen on the radio where im comfortable and could enjoy the music, But I would often go see South Side Johnny, loved his music and the venue was smaller and I just enjoyed that

Holy Smokes...I am a huge South Side Johnny fan! I live in NC and never saw him but somehow my brother got me hooked. Is he still around ( and his Asbury Jukes)

That is awesome . I often wondered why he was not more popular. I loved his music. Funny I have no idea how my brother came across his music living in NC but I remember we had our own little cult following in high school! His sound reminded me a little of Bruce or George Thurogood.

Best: Plant/Page, Faith Hill & Tim McGraw, Metallica (in my younger days )

Worst: Alan Jackson LeeAnn Rimes opened for him in her very young "Blue" days, and her performance blew his away by far. He talked a lot and sang very little. A lot of money wasted on that concert.

Best I paid to go see: Moody Blues. This was 1974, in Houston. They played every single one of my favorites, including some that were years old.

Best I didn't pay to go see: Three Dog Night. This was 1992 or 1993, at the AWHON conference in Reno, Nevada. The hour concert lasted for not quite two hours, and they stopped because the hotel told them they had to playing. I first saw them in 1968, when they were a warm-up band for Vanilla Fudge. Wow! The next day, it was hilarious seeing all the old 1960's era fogies (like me) who could barely move because they spent the evening dancing on chairs and tables.

Worst I paid to go see: Iron Butterfly, along with the James Cotton Blues Band and The Nazz. I think this was in 1969. The Butterfly was the headliner band, and when they came on stage, the organ wouldn't work. For most of the concert, the lead and base player just jammed. When they finally got things working, they introduced their new sound -- blues. OMG, it was horrible.

Worst I didn't pay to go see: Donovan (Donovan Leach). This was 1968, I think. He spent most of the concert sitting cross-legged on stage, playing and singing to himself so that nobody else could hear. Then I got thrown out of the concert hall by security. I was a volunteer worker, and hearing the concert was supposed to be my pay. Security said that I needed to stay at my station, which was INSIDE a men's restroom, watching a window to make certain nobody broke in. Yeah, right.

I need to check the Internet and see if he is coming around here. I am actually shocked that so many on this thread have even heard of him!
