first concert: aerosmith, 1994

favourite concert: non-u2? i guess i'd have to go with radiohead 2003

worst concert (that i actually wanted to go see): madonna, 2001. waited years to see her and got rewarded with a lameass show, 500 costume changes, and all but two songs that weren't off of ray of light or music. screw that bitch.

last concert: arcade fire, last friday! im still off a high from that show, but i seriously think it's a contender for best concert as well

next concert: sasquatch festival, with bjork and the arcade fire. after the last show, im actually more excited about seeing the arcade fire again than i am about seeing bjork for the first time!

Well, if we're including next concerts, I've got Damien Rice and Bright Eyes this week, not to mention Interpol later in the month.

And Bjork in September since she's going to be at ACL

First concert: The Monkees, during their big comeback in the mid 80s. My mom took me to see them at the Wisconsin State Fair in Wisconsin. I my mom. I was so excited!

Best concert: REM in Chicago, 1999. 8th row center. Man-oh-man, good times! (Duran Duran a couple of years ago is a close runner-up, though. Big fun.)

Worst concert: Smashing Pumpkins ... 1999, I think. I was so disappointed.

Last concert: Cat Power at The Showbox in Seattle last year. I was amazed by how much I liked her show, with those great veteran musicians as her backing band (including my then-boyfriend's old friend, who was one of the backup singers). I was expecting whiny, sensitive singer-songwrite crap. I went out and bought "The Greatest" the next day.

Favorite concert: Radiohead, Radio City Music Hall, NYC, April 18, 1998

Worst concert: Another band I can't remember now! Was at Roseland in NYC, can't even remember the year, I think it was the early 90s.

First concert – It was supposed to be Billy Joel but then I learned the girl I had a high school crush on wasn’t a Billy fan. So I sold those tickets and took her to Fleetwood Mac. November 25, 1979, Capitol Centre, Largo, Maryland. Concerts as a first date.

Favorite concert – Bruce Springsteen and the E Street Band. The River Tour. November 23, 1980. Capitol Centre. My first of over 30 Springsteen shows. I was seventeen. Somehow I convinced my mom to let me sleep at the mall so that I could be there when the box office opened. I was the second person in line but there were about 30 others who were also camping out. Of course, everyone else was a lot older. That night I discovered the existence of other true music fans. I sat there on a sleeping bag and all night long, they kept punching my arm and saying, “Just wait ‘til you see Bruce … this show is going to change your life!” And it did. Third row seats. That November night lives on via YouTube.
Tenth Avenue Freeze-Out:

Worst concert – Marky Mark and the Funky Bunch. 1992 - Wiltern Theatre, Los Angeles. The show was pure torture but it was a good night. I was an executive at Paramount Pictures and had arranged with Dick Scott (his then manager) to meet with Mark after the show to give him a script for a low budget film we were developing entitled The Substitute. It turned out to be his first acting gig though the film was horrible and went straight to cable.

Last concert: Arcade Fire, April 26th, San Diego. Small theatre, 1900 people. Incredible show. The most passionate performance that I’ve seen in years.

Next concert: Arcade Fire, May 29th, Los Angeles and then again on June 1st in Berkeley.

First: Tori Amos in 1999.

Favorite: Tie between Pearl Jam in 2000 (I was second row center) and Morrissey in 2002 (at one of the smallest venues he's ever played).

Worst: None. I've enjoyed every gig I've seen so far.

Last: U2 in 2005.

Next: Morrissey (tonight).

First concert: Duran Duran in 1983

Favorite concert: U2 for me. As for other artists I honestly can’t pin point a favorite show each holds different memories for me.

Worst concert : well its not so much worst concerts more i just did not want to be there in the first place 1) Dire Straits in '91 I only went to this show for the support act The Hot House Flowers 2) Metallica in '95 because someone had got me a ticket.

Last concert: Inxs & Simple Minds in March

First Concert: A portuguese band back in 2000 (Xutos & Pontapés). One of those bands that are great to see when you're with a group of great friends, because everybody knows most of their lyrics

Best Concert: Muse (October 2006) I was at third row right in front of Matt in the begining but I was gradually pushed back crazy Muse fans kidding... anyway this concert is up there on my list (together with the U2 one) and I waited for years to be there, so... I guess my choice is justified.

Worst Concert: Keane (June 2006) I didn't like them too much and I endedn up not liking them at all... But Franz Ferdinand came to the stage after them so it was worthy

Last Concert: David Fonseca (portuguese, last sunday)- I like him and it was the first time I saw him... It was a good show...

First Concert: Matchbox Twenty, July 26th 2003

Best Concert: I'm sorry, I know I'm not supposed to, but I HAVE to say U2 - Vertigo, Melbourne (November 18th and 19th, 2006). Most awesome nights of my life; they just blow everyone else away!

Runners-up would have to be Muse, (January 30, 2007) - really awesome show.

Honourable Mention to Augie March (March 30, 2007) - beautiful, artistic performance and a very intimate show. Plus, I was sitting next to the bass player and spoke to the lead guitarist without realising it before the show. Lol!

Worst Concert: Robbie Williams, (December 2006) (please, don't ask) or RHCP (April 2007).

Last Concert: RHCP (April 2007)

Next Concert: The Shins!!!

First concert: Michael Jackson (Bad tour, 1988 )

Favorite concert: If we're doing non-U2, either the Rolling Stones on the Bridges to Babylon tour in '97, or Bruce any of the times I've seen him. Fiona Apple last summer also comes to mind.

Worst concert: Tom Petty, 2006

Last concert: The Tragically Hip, April 12th

Next Concert: Stevie Nicks
