    Best concert you've ever been to?

    So what's the best concert (or concerts) you've ever been to?

    Me? Has to be U2 in 2005. I'd never seen them before until then but heard such great things about their shows. I was not disappointed. It was probably the closest thing to having a religious experience without having one.

    2nd best has to be The Police last summer. My seat sucked, but the sound was amazing and I sang and danced my butt off.

    3rd best is probably Duran Duran in 1987. A close tie would be seeing the original lineup in 2005. I've seen them 11 times between those 2 shows.

    4th place has to be a tie between The Cure last month and Chic in 2004.

    Honorable mentions go to: Sugar Ray, Live, OK Go & Rick Springfield.

    Hands down....Paul McCartney on November 3, 2005. He was in top form and sang SO many of my favorite Beatles tunes as well as Wings. He was amazing and the band was too!

    Prince, in 1987 was abosfreakinglutely amazing. He was great the second time I saw him but the first time was amazing.

    Bowling for Soup last year at House of Blues. I took my son for his 13th birthday and he got to meet the guys before the show thanks to Frecky. It's one of his favorite bands so he was in heaven. Then during the show they said Happy Birthday to him on stage. It was awesome. The look on his face was priceless.

    Trans-Siberian Orchestra Dec 07 - Who woulda thunk it?
    At first they played the Christmas stuff and then after that, about another hour of other stuff. Their pyrotechnics were amazing!!

    Best ever was the Monster of Rock at the LA Coliseum. 93,000 people jam packed at it was a scorcher.

    Re: Best concert you've ever been to?

    Peter Gabriel at the Ventura Theater in either 1992 or 1993, can't remember which!

    They only sold 300 tickets to the public and it was a very intimate and amazing show


    runners up would be:
    Dramarama, anywhere and anytime
    Billy Idol, Grand Sierra Resort 2007 and 2008
    They Might Be Giants, anywhere and anytime
    Weird Al, The Pioneer Center in Reno
    Depeche Mode in 1985 (i think that's the right year)
    Live and Counting Crows, Reno Hilton

    #1- Metallica at the Honda Center in Anaheim
    #2- Pearl Jam at the Great Western Forum in Inglewood
    #3- R.E.M at the Greek Theater in Los Angeles

    I have been to about 40 concerts in my life so this was a hard question.

    Re: Best concert you've ever been to?

    Depeche Mode, Concert for the Masses, Rose Bowl in Pasadena, June 1988. It was the most amazing concert experience of my life. It was their thank you to the LA fans that helped launch them.

    Had a similar experience with BareNaked Ladies in 1994. They were supporting their 2nd album.
    Anything listed on the park maps as an attraction is fair game for inclusion in the Rally.
    I cannot confirm nor deny the inclusion of any attraction in the Rally.

    Re: Best concert you've ever been to?

    Michele, I was at that concert too!

    U2, hands down puts on the best show I've ever seen. I've seen them several times and can't pick out a favorite ... although The Joshua Tree Tour was incredible and in '05 for the Vertigo Tour I had general admission floor seats and that was an awesome experience.

    Others worth mentioning:
    - Depeche Mode @ The Rose Bowl with Thomas Dolby and OMD
    - Peter Gabriel
    - The Police @ Dodger Stadium with the Foo Fighters
    One day your life will flash before your eyes. Make sure it's worth watching.

    Oh so many!!! Any NSYNC one, Bon Jovi in Vegas a few years ago, Matchbox 20 in San Diego in 03? Fabulous. Every Rascal Flatts one is great but the Staples Center 3 years ago was fantastic. Oh and Kenny Chesney, he's so great live.
    Good morning, son

    Maybe we'll both sit down and have a few beers
    And I can tell you 'bout today
    And how I picked you up and everything changed
    It was pain
    Sunny days and rain
    I knew you'd feel the same things...
