no one I've seen comes close to U2 for me

But most fun maybe Violent Femmes at Hollywood High school
REM very good
Dead Can Dance was otherworldy but I think I was slipped something before that show

I've seen so many shows it's hard to say...but obvious favorites are the many Tori Amos and Jeff Buckley shows; Bjork; Wilco; Damien Rice. And there are a whole bunch of things like Tom Waits way back when that I've nearly forgotten about but which blew my mind at the time.

Pronoia

Do you know the setlist for the first concert? . I'm seeing the Brothers 3 nights this weekend... should be great (in a very slight way I would prefer Neil solo - but that will come next year apparently).

That Park West show is one of my favourite Neil boots even if it does drop out after All God's Children's debut (which is met with hillarious laughter )
