    Attention Concert-Goers:

    I wanna know what your dream concert would be!

    I saw mine last night in Toronto.... Radiohead. It was the most beautiful thing I've ever seen. It was of delight for the senses, and I can't wait for them to come around again.

    That dream being fulfiled, I guess my next dream concert would be Primus. Les Claypool is my biggest bass influence, and a madman. That show would be raw power.

    Also, what was the best show you've been to?

    very cool. i really wanted to see them in toronto! i think animal collective in the rain and cat power during dusk were my dreams come true. but i still want to see bjork. i haven't seen her yet and she's the most influential musician in my mind. it would be great to see a good 2-hour show of her at the toronto opera house. or even better, copps collosium. meh. mgmt would be amazing to see too. i have a long list of artists i still need to see lol....

    I've seen so many concerts I have to pull out my old ticket stubs to remember them all.

    I've seen some great shows over the years. I was front row center at REM. Also for Counting Crows. I saw Jars of Clay at a small coffeehouse before they signed a record deal. KISS was great. Metallica was great. I saw Johnny Lang perform at a Hard Rock Cafe. I saw Damien Rice at a tiny club show.

    And being in Nashville and having been in the music business, I've sat in on private rehearsals by Willie Nelson, Jon Bon Jovi, Prince, and Keith Richards of the Rolling Stones.

    And back in my metalhead days I used to love going to small clubs and getting right up front by the stage, in the mosh pit. Wish I wasn't too old for that now. It was a lot of fun.

    My dream concert would be :

    Jennifer Hudson opening

    Then Erykah Badu coming on next

    Then Queen Latifah doing a mix of her singing and her old-school rapping.

    I would jerk off in the seats if I had all three of these women on stage.

    Great idea for a thread!

    I think Radiohead takes the cake for me too. I'm so jealous of you right now. icon_smile.gif

    After that, I would love to see Sarah McLachlan, moby, Annie Lennox, Iron & Wine, okay I could go on and on...

    Best concert? I've seen Dave Matthews about a half dozen times and loved every concert. I recently saw Rilo Kiley, Thao Nguyen, and others at a smaller venue and thought it was a really good show.

    Never been to a (real) music festival, but that is one of my goals for next year.

    I'd love to go to a Robbie Williams, The Killers, Cat Power, or Sarah McLachlan concert.

    Some friends and I went to a Sigur Rós concert down here in Mexico but sadly the drummer fell ill in the middle of it and the organization was crap. Listening to Sigur Rós (and Andrew Bird prior to them) was awesome, though.
