U2 in 1987 during the Joshua Tree tour. I was in the pit and the show was the best I had ever seen-and during the encore Bruce Springsteen came out and they played a song together! This was in the old JFK Stadium in Philadelphia, where the US portion of Live Aid was played. It was packed to the gills.

Awesome show! How well I remember during the summer camping out overnight for the tickets outside, and my parents embarrassing me by walking there with my puppy to check up on me while I was trying to be cool.

The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame Grand Opening Concert - unreal to see Chuck Berry and Bruce Springsteen on the same stage (at the same time), then add in John Mellencamp, Aretha Franklin, Jerry Lee Lewis, The Kinks, Johnny Cash, Booker T and the MGs, Parliament Funkadelic, George Clinton...I can't even remember half of the folks there. What a great concert!

RUSH Time Machine - is mine. So many tie for 2nd but that concert was incredible.

I agree!! Before I even opened this thread, I was going to say the same thing. Time Machine has been my absolute favorite concert! We got free box seats from DH's work and it was incredible! I would have gladly paid a lot of money to see them. I had forgotten how much Rush we listened to back in college until I heard all the songs I remembered.

Second would be the Stones. We camped out overnight for tickets back in college & it was held in our stadium. So much fun!

I was just coming here to post that the Joshua Tree tour was my favorite too. First real concert, junior high, friends grown brother chaperoned a whole slew of shrieking 13 year olds...poor guy. I still remember like it was yesterday crying hysterically (again, 13!) when the band's silhouettes went walking across the red screen to the opening of Where the Street's Have No Name The concert we were at was the one where they filmed the duo with BB King for the Rattle and Hum movie. And of course, being that age I didn't have a CLUE who that was, lol!

I went to a lot of concerts in the 80's, several in the 90's, and only a few in the 00's:

80's: Hard to pick just one- Def Leppard at the Omni in ATL was awesome, and REM at a free show in Athens, GA on the UGA campus was pretty great, too.

90's: Indigo Girls at Chastain Ampitheater. Amazing- the venue is wonderful and brings out the best in most performers.

00's: Hands down best was Elvis Costello and the Imposters at a small venue in Charlotte. Seeing him up close and doing all his old favorites was just unforgettable.

I remember Bono walking out on stage and me bursting into tears, too. I was a complete Bono fanatic- I even had a mullet haircut like the one he had in the early 80s. God, I loved him.

The other best thing about that concert was that when I was leaving the stadium, I found a thick gold chain on the ground, and with no way to find the owner I wound up selling it the next week-so my concert turned out to be free and then some!

Marshall Tucker Band in 1986 at the Westport Playhouse in STL. Advertised as "accoustically perfect" the playhouse seated just a few hundred with a slowly rotating stage in the center of the room. I was in 4th row over a dressing room entry, so ther were no rows 1-3 in front of me. amazing show!


Best stadium show was probably Boston in 1987. Also saw Sammy Hagar in 2002 with Montrose. The Hagar part of the show was so-so (and we've seen Sammy several times, this was the weakest), but Montrose was terrific.

Pleasant surprises were Arlo Guthrie (also at Westport Playhouse) and Foo Fighters. FF was long after I'd outgrown any desire to go to a big venue concert, and I wasn't really a fan going in, but they were great!

Large venue: Rolling Stones Voodoo Lounge Tour front row. We were so close to Mick we could count the wrinkles on his face. lol

Small venue: Beach Boys in California Adventure on Paradise Pier in the front row. To be sitting in a Disney park and seeing my all time favorite band was insanely amazing. Actually they were performing there 2 nights and we had front row seats two nights back to back. Just thinking about those two shows gives me goose bumps. ::sigh::

Bruce Springsteen hands down!

I first saw Bruce in 1979 (Darkness on the Edge of Town tour) and have seen him on every tour since including his most recent Wrecking Ball tour. He plays for 3 to 3.5 hours every time. His connection with his audience is legendary.

We are huge concert lovers. I have seen many of the shows listed in this thread. But, I have to say Depeche Mode was my favorite concert. Mostly for the nostalgia factor.
