Genesis- "Mama", The Inivisible Touch Tour. That pounding drum line, the haunting synth keyboard, the driving bass....and then Phil gets all wicked and does the evil laugh! "Ha-ha-owwww!" Great opener for an under-rated band.

Honorable mentions:
Peter Gabriel- Come Talk To Me
Phil Collins- The Drum Duet
Sting- Fields of Gold

Back in 1990, I went to see Robert Plant on his Manic Nirvana tour, and the thing that stands out about that show was the beginning. It started with the song Watching You, which is the last one on the Manic Nirvana album. Bombastic drums that seem to go on forever before the song kicks in.

It was really cool.

-Daft Punk - The opening three minutes of 'Alive 1997' (live in Birmingham) are fantastic, and then it goes straight to 'Da Funk'...bloody amazing stuff.
-Radiohead - The Gloaming (Earl's Court 26th November 2003)

Queen- We Will Rock You(the fast version, of course)

and I agree about Pearl Jam-Long Road(effective to open with a slower made this song one of my favorite Pearl Jam songs after they opened in West Palm Beach with it)
