    How about the top 5 BEST shows you have ever seen. List them along with Where and when.

    Here are mine:

    1. Pink Floyd- 1995, Phila, PA- Division Bell tour

    2. Monsters of Rock- Van Halen, Scorpions, Dokken, and Metallica
    1988-JFK stadium, Phila, PA 75,000 people

    3. Dream Theater- Met 2-1999, Electric Factory, Phila, PA

    4. Ozzy- 1992, Allentown, PA, No More Tours

    5. Page and Plant- 1995-1996(?)- Spectrum in Philla, PA.

    I have seen concerts for about 16 years and these are the best. They hold a special place in my heart for many reasons. Long after the music is over the memory remains.

Since I'm seeing Rush this summer and Rhapsody claims they'll be doing an American tour, these will change this year! :headbang:

    For me too! Concerts I've been to since around 1969 are too many to even mention, but I'll just say that none ever compared to Symphony X shows. Best was Obsessions NiteClub New Jersey Sept. 9, 2001. I'll never forget it. A couple memorable shows were Black Sabbath's first America tour (I sat behind the speaker cab and smoked cigs with Ozzy who was a nervous wreck, between his singing parts and told him "You're doing really good!"), also Uriah Heep early days tours, Tull's Thick as a Brick tour, McCartney and Wings, Floyd in '72....many shows I don't even remember. Well it WAS the 70's o_O I thank God I survived those times.
    blah, blah, blah......

    Whoa, Smoked cigs with Oz ??? Thats cool.

    I drank a beer with jason Bonham one time. I am a huge Zep fan so it was real cool to talk to his son. That was cool. I also met ALL the members of DT at Met 2000 show. My Met 2000 tourbook is signed by ALL members of DT.

    Pharoh, tell us more baout your cool shows in the 70's. Did you ever see L Zeppelin?

    I wish I knew about that show at Obsessions. I totally would have been there. :cry: I was there to see Flotsam on 10/8/01.

    by the way, I tried posting the list of bands I've seen and number of times I've seen them from my excel sheet, but it didn't work.
