On the heels of DD's post about fave 80s bands...
What is the BEST concert you've ever been to?
for me..its definantly from 1992. Peter Gabriel was having a "warm up" show in preparation for his concert tour starting a week or so later. So he had this practice show at the Ventura Theater in Ventura, Ca. They only sold 300 tickets to the public, and the theater held about 1000 usually. We were lucky enough to get tickets and it was an amazing show, partially becuase Peter Gabriel was so fantastic and also becuase there wasn't the usual "being shoved against the stage" that you usually get when you're in the front row of a show.
My follow up show would have to be the Violent Femmes at Ceasers South Lake Tahoe 2 years ago. Yet another small sized show, which i've come to enjoy WAY more than big arena shows. This concert is closely followed by Dramarama...at ANY of their shows
So......what say you fellow MC'rs?
