I saw them a few times on that tour and I wonder if we might have been at the same show.

In ancient times...

Of all the acts I've seen, Muse were the only band/artist whose show made me run to buy an overpriced T-shirt at the merchandise stall after the concert just so that I could have a memento of the sheer awesomeness I've just witnessed. I suppose that would be my ultimate yardstick for all concerts past and future,

In terms of Greatest Ever U2 would definitely up there, though I don't really know the older bands all that well to judge.

U2 and Zeppelin without a doubt in the "ever" category. AC/DC, the Stones and Rush are up there. (Yes, Rush...when I arrived at their 30th anniversary concert I was a lukewarm fan... but I left a huge fan)


When the boys are in a relatively good mood, Oasis is an amazing live act and one of the best at their game.

Happy Mondays were meant to be mind blowing back in their hey day.

I personally fnd it difficult to imagine anyone topping a U2 gig.

Interpol blew my mind when I saw them.

On a good/great night, no one touches U2 or Zeppelin. Problem is both are so damn inconsistent.

Queen were consistently good.

Never saw Who, Stones or Floyd so can't comment

While I absolutely agree that U2 and Bruce Springsteen are two of the greatest live acts ever, I would have to toss Madonna's name into that category as well. The sheer artistic spectacle that was the Drowned World Tour 2001 is pretty difficult to surpass.

However, I must say that her current Sticky & Sweet Tour is abysmal for the most part.
