I love Ben Folds! Would love to see him. He sings my favorite song of all time: Gracie Girl

Totally agree about DMB. Thought we were the only ones who felt this way!

We have a theatre in town that we have attended several concerts at.

Best : REO Speedwagon (1 year ago)
Best : Leann Rimes (1 year ago - it was her acoustic show and it was great - don't think much of her as a person, but she is a wonderful singer)

Worst : Styx (1 year ago - perhaps it was because we were not drinking, like most of the attendees were, but it was not a very good show)

DS saw Uncle Kracker, and said it was a great show. It was his first "date".

Can't say I've ever been to a bad one. We saw a great one last November, the Who with opening act Vintage Trouble. Look up this new band Vintage Trouble, they are fantastic!

Only bad thing about the Who show was we paid a ridiculous amount of money for a package included with the 2nd row center seats. Ticketmaster bungled the whole thing. The so-called VIP package was said to include beer and wine. When we got to the hospitality suite I asked for one of the several beers that were on tap. I was then told we were only allowed Bud Light. Seriously? I can't drink that crap. All it does is guarantee you will have to pee sometime during the show.

But I digress. The show was great!

Best: Alabama. They were performing in a brand new baseball stadium...and they made a point of telling us that they didn't have a specific time that they needed to be done. So they played nearly every song they had every recorded. Plus they did a section in the middle of the show where they sang a bunch of their favorite covers from back when they used to play in bars before they were famous. It was a really long concert. But they kept the audience engaged throughout the entire concert.

Runner up: Garth Brooks.

Worst: I have only been to about a dozen concerts and none of them stand out as particularly bad.

Best: Jason Aldean (3)times! But I am very disappointed that now he's so big that he does'nt even come to my state!

Worst: Guns N Roses. This was back in high school and they took two hours to take the stage after Metallica(who were awsome!) and then performed like they did'nt even want to be there. We actually left after about three songs.

Best:
Eagles
Fleetwood Mac
Robert Plant and Jimmy Page
Alice Cooper (his Welcome to My Nightmare show)

Worst:
None were really bad. Procol Harum was a big dull and Waylon Jennings didn't seem to want to be there but they weren't really BAD.

I saw Willie Nelson once when he was jamming with some others and he was great. I'm sorry to read that he can be rude.

One of my favorite concerts was a Huey Lewis & The News concert, but I, (and many others), left before Huey Lewis came on stage.

In part of their summer tour in 1984 Huey Lewis had Stevie Ray Vaughan as an opening act.

I saw the show in August in Greensboro, NC

Stevie Ray just tore the place up and no matter how much you like Huey Lewis, everyone just knew that Huey got upstaged that night.

Alabama used to host a 'June Jam' every year in their hometown of Fort Payne and those were some great concerts

I have you beat as well.. I'm 42 and have gone regularly since my mom dragged me when I was 9 'cause none of her friends would go. We even went 3x in one week when he was on Broadway way back when. My daughter is 14 and has gone with me now as well. She was proud of herself at theater camp when she won her team a point for being the only one who knew "I Write the Songs" when they were playing name that tune.

I saw him two years ago in Orlando though and after that I don't think I'll be going back. The show was short and uneventful (no big fun flashy numbers that he is famous for) and he was grouchy. (Oh yes, and his opening group was not at all family friendly. Lots of kids in the audience and unhappy parents.) Not worth the $200+ we paid. It made me very sad.

He also sounded like he was struggling a bit when he sang for the ice show the other week. Getting old is not fun.

love Southside Johnny but I'm originally a Jersey girl. He's on my iPod.

My favorite is The Beach Boys and my least fav is the Beach Boys. Saw them one time (out of maybe 10x?) and it was quite horrible. The rest of the concerts were good, fun and they just kept singing and singing and singing.
