I've not had a bad concert. Now a couple, I blame the venue. Saw Modest Mouse in a club. Hot as hades and ruined a great show by them.

Sixth row for Trans-Siberian Orchestra wasn't as great as one would think.... We prefer the side seats where we can see all the laser show.

Best, hands down, was U2's 360 tour. Although access to the venue was a major PITA as there was only one or two ways in and traffic was hell.

Loved Bon Jovi, Def Leppard, Bob Seger, Tina Turner, Aerosmith, Tears for Fears, Daughtry.

Worst was REO Speedwagon. Hot outdoor concert. Crowd was a bunch of drunken redneck turds (concert was part of nascar speed week in downtown Charlotte). Most of us escaped into an open office building where there was AIR CONDITIONING AND NO RETARDED DRUNK REDNECKS CROWDING US.

Would've liked New Kids on the Block (reunion tour) had it not been for loud screaming WOMEN which hurt my ears. Group was great tho.

Haven't seen a really bad concert yet...

The good ones: George Strait - saw him early on in his career and then on tour with Reba McIntire. Very good concert. We want to see him again too before he retires.

Cher - in Las Vegas if that counts. She did a great show but DH was not happy that she spent so much time changing clothes...

Toby Keith with Eric Church - was a pretty good show.

How could I almost forget Alabama - I saw them at a county fair back in the early '80's when they toured with in the blue Winnebago. Great Concert!

Saw Chubby Checker - just for the heck of it. He actually did a great show and he is in his early 70's. The guy can still twist like you wouldn't believe.

Crewfest 2009-Best AND worst in one show! Godsmack was amazing, they fed off the crowd who loved them, they looked like they where honestly enjoying them selves up there and soaking every minute in.

However Motley Crew where horrible, he forgot words to the songs and when he did remember them they where out of tune. Probably half the arena left before the first half of his set was over. He looked like he was just up there because he HAD to and just going through the motions, poorly going through the motions.

Though Flogging Molly puts on a pretty darn good show consistently since they have family in the area.

I think at this point Gowan fits in better with the band. When they last played with Dennis in 1997, he fit in better. So to answer your question, today in 2013, I prefer Gowan.

But honestly, it was actually all about Glen Miss him more than Dennis any day :-)

And Tommy rocks my world...if he were to leave, I doubt I would go again....unless Glen replaced him again, of course.

Gowan sure has the pipes! I missed Dennis Deyoung, but I do think Gowan was a good replacement.

Hmmm, this is a tough one! But I'd probably go with;

Best - Tool and Pearl Jam

Mentions to - Green Day, Deftones, Incubus and A Perfect Circle

Worst - The Smashing Pumpkins during their 'farewell' tour about 10 years ago, they went for maximum money and did a HUGE venue which was half filled and really didn't suit them, was most disappointing!

Other than that every concert I have been to has been pretty good and I have been to one or two concerts in my time

Where did you see them? We saw the 360 show in Foxboro, MA. I was in a state of nirvana. Wish they would tour even when they haven't released new music, but they've never done that except a festival or 2. My first U2 concert was for the Joshua Tree and I got choked up seeing Bono walk on stage. Yah, I'm a mega fan!

The best one I've attended was the Woodstock in 1995- great shows by Green Day, Chili Peppers, Bob Dylan, Melissa Ethridge, Cypress Hill, etc.

Also, Jack Johnson on Oahu was a great show.

Worst: Some combo show with Chaka Kanh (sp?) Doobie Brothers, Denise Williams etc in 2003. Doobie Brother's weren't bad, but all the acts leading up to them were horrible!

Oooh! My favorite subject! My husband and I try to see as many shows as we can.
Best - PHISH- my boys from Vermont bring it every single time. Summer tour is my favorite time of the year (next to my annual Disney trip). My new favorite band is Umphrey's Mcgee. We saw them in Nashville last September and it was AMAZING.
Worst - Prince. This was back in his "Symbol" phase. It just plain sucked.

I'm not a big concert fan. I don't like everyone standing up and screaming. I just want to sit and listen to the singer I paid to hear! I took DS to Taylor Swift last year and it probably would have been good except for all the screaming teenagers!

The best I ever saw was Bette Midler! Not only do I love her music anyway but everyone stayed seated and listened quietly, no screaming! She was a lot of fun too, lots of jokes and stories. She puts on quite a show

I don't have a worst, but the most embarrassing would have to be when I was in 7th grade and saw New Kids On The Block

I would love to see Barry Manilow someday!

I've been to so many good concerts. Some of my favorites have been:

TOOL--awesome everytime we've seen them! I've gotten to hear almost all of my favorite songs live, except The Grudge. Still hoping to hear that one live one day.

Devo--saw them a few times in the 80's. Still to this date one of the best shows I've seen.

Rob Zombie--So good! The only downside for me is John 5 waving at the crowd to scream during the whole show. He's done it both shows I've been to.

INXS--saw them at the University of Houston in the 80's and it was so good!The small venue made it even better. Saw them again in a much larger venue years later, still a great concert though.

Marilyn Manson--I've seen him several times and have loved almost every show. His last show on the Twins of Evil tour wasn't as good as usual.

Some bands I've liked so much more after seeing them live:

Cage the Elephant and Papa Roach

Hands down the worst concert I've been to was back in the 80's. Went to see the Plasmatics with my boyfriend and it was awful. So bad we left during it.

Also bad was the opening band at a Marilyn Manson concert, The Hours. Horrible, horrible show.

Also not the worst concert but not that great was the Beastie Boys back in the 80's. The opened for Madonna and weren't very good. Lots of booing from the crowd.

Best: Paul McCartney @ Fenway Park, Elton John and Billy Joel at Foxboro, David Bowie, Dixie Chicks, Rod Stewart, Britney (Circus Tour with my preteen), and Aerosmith a bazillion times including their most recent free concert in Allston. Also saw J.Geils a couple bazillion times

Worst: Peter Frampton (two years ago, uggggggg), CCR, Melissa Etheridge (turned out to be a lesbian lovefest and I'm hetero lol), and so many others that I just went for the concert scene, not the music, at a place close by with the absolute worst acoustics but best 1977-1984 tailgaiting

HEY! I wasn't expecting to hear that on these boards! I've seen them twice. Both times from the safety of the balcony. Watched my son crowd-surf from up there. He would land on the stage, get kicked off the stage, then do it again. That was a great show!
