I'm so proud to have taken you to that.

For me, this is a hard one, but I'd say Bruce Springsteen, front row (in front of Little Steven ) on The Rising tour, 2002.

Damn, front row. I can see why!

Mine is Springsteen, of course, at Fenway Park. I wasn't front row, but I was still close.

Man, too hard of a question. I notice I always go to concerts and if they're good I come out saying something like "That's one of the best shows I've ever been to"....

If I had to choose really quick without thinking about it, I'd say these:

Radiohead 2003 SLC
Curiosa Festival (The Cure of course being the highlight) 2004 SLC

Yeah, tough question, 'sif we can pick favourites!

Having said that:

Silverchair Apr 2004
Tori Amos May 2005
John Butler Trio sometime 2004
The Eagles Nov 2004
Fleetwood Mac Feb 2004
Boney M Sep 2002 (not really a fan but.. we got to dance with them on stage :P)

Any other fans of this lot?

The Crowded House farewell concert at Sydney Opera House steps was awesome as well, great atmosphere and I was still sorta into them at that stage..

U2 - 2001-12-02 ... because it literally changed my life


But Snow Patrol this past May has been the most fun (for the combination of company, music, and crowd) I've ever had at a concert!

:ultracompleteutterabsolutemegajealousy:

That's right at the top of my list of "gigs I really would've loved to have gone to".

Decemeber 2 2004 - Finn Brothers @ State Theatre was utterly amazing. Although I will say Midnight Oil headling a benifit gig here in Sydney completely blew me away...

So toss a coin. :toss:

U2 popmart 1997-LA (I also had to state this cause it changed my life) (also every other u2 show)

Doves - Some cities tour LA
Radiohead- LA and San Diego Shows (last tour)
Magnetic Fields - 2004- LA
Bjork - 2003 -LA (She's amazing live)

Yeah. Those were some of the best shows I've seen thus far...

#1 with a bullet:

Pink Floyd, Foxboro, MA 5-18-94

Honorable mentions:

The Floyd show changed my life, no exaggeration.

Radiohead, HTTT tour.

Runners up:
Bjork- Greatest Hits and Homogenic Tours
Tori Amos- Choirgirl Hotel Tour
Moby- Play tour
Pearl Jam- Yield tour
Beck- Midnite Vultures
Garbage- Version 2.0 tour

Interpol this year was pretty cool as well.
Flaming Lips were quite good as well. They were definitely the best opener I've ever seen, when they opened for Beck.

Hope I'm not forgetting anyone.
