Violent Femmes at The Brewery in Louisvile. Can't remember the year, though. Maybe '96??

I have only been to two concerts as a married adult. Both times were to see The Wiggles, and they were pretty good.

i went to a LOT of concerts as a teenager in the late 80's. the absolute best concert ever was kool and the gang at the fox theater in atlanta - everyone was up, dancing and singing along; it was AWESOME. 2nd best would have to be bon jovi, on the new jersey tour in spring of 1989.

I am going to say the most recent which was Pat Benetar. She was AWESOME! Still a great voice. Her and her hubby put on a fantastic show. She would tell a little about some of the songs. Loved it!

Oh my! I'm about to royally embarrass myself, but my #1 favorite concert was New Kids on the Block's Magic Summer Tour in 1990 (it was my first concert and I was 7). It was a really great childhood memory!

Bruce Springsteen's Tunnel of Love tour. I'm jealous of folks who saw Paul McCartney and U2 they are on my bucket list.

I would be sitting on the patio of the Fontana bar at the Bellagio hotel in Las Vegas watching the dancing fountains on a warm balmy night whilst sipping vintage Champagne

The closing ceremony of the London Olympic Games last year. So many great artists, including some of my favourites of all time! The atmosphere was amazing too.

I have to agree. My friend asked me to go last minute for free (she needed a ride). I want to say it was 1993 ISh. (I was in my early 20's) To be honest, I didn't think I knew the music (wings?) just something to do.
OMG third row seats in a baseball/football stadium. He came out on a crane above us. I knew every song and I felt like it was a private concert.

I've seen U2 Joshua tree where his arm was broke and Springsteen came to play...pretty epic.
Stones Steal wheels tour,

Oh and I've seen Billy Joel a hand full of times. Once with Elton John who I absolutely love his music. To be honest, I think his poorest performance. He just sang, no showmanship at all which he is known for. Left me salty.

We had a wonderful time, but did have our moments!

Pretty much down to my hips on one side, but nice and perky on the other

I haven't been to a concert in ages. But some of my favorites were the Beach Boys at Jones Beach... they would arrive by boat!! I saw Bette Midler there once too, she was fabulous!!!

Once in college, I went to a concert. I'm thinking it was at Nassau Community College. It was a benefit for some Russian Ballet company. It was Harry Chapin, Gordon Lightfoot, and two others, I forget who. (Sorry, guys, this was circa 1977 or so.) It was amazing!l. All 4 performers were singers of ballards, so it was one wonderful story after another.

I was also supposed to see Harry Chapin on the night he died; I was dressed and waiting for the guy I was dating to pick me up when we got the word of the accident.
