I saw Ours(first time seeing them) open for Powderfinger and left about 5 songs into Powderfinger's set to go hang out with lead singer of Ours. There was simply no comparison.

I saw Fiona Apple open for Coldplay. She wasn't better but it did turn me into a huge fan and I talked about her performance as much as Coldplay's in the days after the concert.

At the time, I thought Rage Against the Machine was better than U2 when they opened at PopMart, but I was just a rebellious 16 yr old at the time, and it wasn't cool to like U2 in the late 90's...but still, Rage was pretty good live.
