Tough one, cause very little comes close to the boys.

The Black Crowes put on an amazing show last summer. At the time I was blown away, but it paled in comparison to the show I saw only a few nights before.

Well this isn't too hard, since I have only seen two concerts besides U2....
Chris Cornell on his solo tour....2000. I was directly in front of him the whole night, a homecoming concert for him.
What a night...

Beck, Midnite Vultures Tour, he kicks ass!! Best showman after Bono, and musically, funky shit!

REM, Up tour, great performers.

The Frames, in a lecture theatre here in UL, fantastic, really intimate performance, wonderfully talented band.

Asian Dub Foundation, crazy, funky beats.

And the best non-U2 concert WILL BE Witnness this summer Oasis, Chemical Brothers, Air, The Prodigy, Starsailor, The Hives, Black Rebel Motorcycle Club, Mercury Rev, Badly Drawn Boy, Groove Armada, Tricky, Basement Jaxx, Dandy Warhols, Cornelius.....and more.....can you get a line-up any better?!?! Mmmm...

They are a really good live show.... I've seen the Black Crowes about 4 times and I'd have to say they are the 2nd best band I've seen live....a distant 2nd.... but Chris Robinson has ALOT of energy on stage and their music always rocks !!!

I've only seen the Black Crowes once (along with Lenny Kravitz)...unfortunately, it's the only concert that I don't really remember...but I guess they're that kind of band.

Tough to pick just one...there have been many non-U2 nights where I have been wowed. A few that come immediately to mind:
Bruce Springsteen...he is the hardest working man in rock. Seen him 5 times, all great. Most memorable would be in 99 at the Fleetcenter when I sat 4th row on the floor. During encores, security let people go to front of the stage. Quite an experience watching Bruce sing "Born to Run" from about 4 feet away.

Pearl Jam...my 2nd favorite band. Seen 8 shows, all great. Orpheum Theater April of 1994, last scheduled show of Vs. tour, they let the crew pick the setlist. An amzing night filled with rarities. I believe its the last time they played "Dirty Frank" live to this day.

J. Geils Band at the Paradise June of 1999. A supposed "surprise" show (worst kept secret in Boston) before kicking off their reunion tour. Supposed to do 30 minutes as "Juke Joint Jimmy and his House Party 5" opening for Alex Chilton and the Boxtops. Instead Boxtops open, and Geils plays 2 hrs 20 minutes in a 600 person capacity club, which had at least 800 people in attendance.
Other great shows included The Who, the Stones, Nirvana and many more.

Very good thread

The Boss ranks at the top of the list. As Hewson says, he is definitely the hardest working man in show business. My last boss show was his holiday show in Asbury Park. Smiliar if U2 would play Dublin every year.

Ryan Adams, who I saw 6 weeks ago @ Roseland, is an upcoming alternative country artist. If you have the chance to see, definitely go.

I adore Ryan Adams--he is so hilarious. I REALLY want to hear his Strokes cover album.
