Best: The Moody Blues, seen them twice in concert and loved em both. Doesn't hurt they are my favorite band and I can sing along to their playlist. Get to see them again in a month.

Runners Up: U2 and Tim McGraw, seen them 3 times each and each time it's been a good show.

Worst: N'Sync. We were sitting in nosebleed at the old Mile High Stadium. The stadium was junk, the bathrooms in deplorable conditions. I was seated next to one of the crankiest women ever and I had tweens screaming in my ear and I was barely out of my teens myself. And it didn't help that the hotel shuttle never came to pick us up and left us stranded. Ended up having to call a cab.

Great - The Monkees, '68. OK, I was young. Been to too many concerts, too long ago, to remember them all. Some I deny ever attending, so I won't get laughed at.

Worst - I had free tickets to hear Michael Bolton. It was a waterfront bandstand in Miami, and the speakers were turned up so you could hear him all the way to the moon. His voice was vibrating thru my sternum and it hurt. Beside the fact that he was pathetic, his music was seriously hurting me. I left quickly.

Best - The recent James Taylor/Carole King tour, Harry Chapin, Trans Siberian Orchestra (not sure if that's considered a "concert" or a "show"), just saw a performance of Midtown Men, 4 guys who had been in Jersey Boys on Broadway singing songs from the 60s. It was great!

Worst - Don't really have a worst.

Let's go into the way back machine, shall we? Best would be George Harrison, Santana, Bryan Adams, and believe it or not, Savage Garden. Took my daughter because she loved them and I really enjoyed it.

Worst concert ever...Sting. Annie Lennox was the only bright spot in that concert.

Before I die...Pearl Jam or Eddie Vedder solo. I was so sad to have to miss Mark Knopfler's recent US tour, but someday!

The venue and your seats can make or break a concert.

Best concert....Rush 1st time seeing them - Excellent sound and excellent seats

Worst concert....Rush - 2nd time seeing them at a different venue - the acoustics were so bad, I couldn't figure out what song they were playing until half way through each song

Another bad one for me was Joe Satriani - I fell asleep!

I mentioned Marshall Tucker Band as my best, but they were also one of my not favorites. Same venue and the band was great both times. Second time though, the lead singer got real "creative" with the melodies, and it just did not work.

Well if course Styx has been the best concerts They still put on a fantastic, high energy show.

Brett Michaels solo in a little tiny, very intimate venue before he had a huge resurgence in popularity.

Bryan Adams.

Bon Jovi.

I know I have seen some that weren't very good....but my mind is just working that good this morning.

This is a tough one because I've seen so many.


Absolute best: Garth Brooks
Close runners up: Kenny Cheney, Zac Brown, Van Halen, Jimmy Buffett, Bryan Adams, Luke Bryan, Rod Stewart, Elton John, James Taylor, Melissa Ethridge, Bonnie Raitt, Matchbox Twenty, B-52s, ZZ Top.
I could go on and on!
Worst: Stevie Nicks.....back in her drug days and completely forgot the words to several songs. She got boo'd. Genesis....saw them in Germany and every time Phil Collins spoke, he talked about "stupid, ignorant Americans". Tons of US servicemen and women were at this show. Awful.

Oooo. Lucky. I would have loved to have scene savage garden. I still listen to them now as an adult. My husband is always making fun of me.

This is difficult to narrow down, I attend about one concert a month. Two this month!


Best:

The Black Keys: amazingly high energy
The xx: unbelievably talented, better vocals than the recordings
La Roux: great performer, fantastic at engaging the crowd
The Cults: I only got to see them as an opener, but I was in heaven. I love their sound, and live they sent chills down my spine.


Worst:

Bon Jovi: I was only 5, so maybe it shouldn't count, but we saw them in a summer concert series at Great Adventure and I just remember being so mad I was forced to sit there and hold my hands over my ears while I could have been going on rides!

American Idol Season 10 tour: my first and last time attending one of these...I don't know what I was thinking. I hate country music and a 'country singer' won that year!


I haven't really attended many 'bad' concerts. I tend to stay away from arena acts.

BEST: BEN FOLDS!! Love him---great guy live...energy, charisma and gets the crowd involved and tells good stories

Worst: I 've seen a lot of concerts where I thought they were terrible live... hmmmmm.... Dave Matthews Band was not great..I cannot stand when a band jams out on one song for 20 minutes ..You have to be really really high or really really drunk to enjoy that.
