    What concert was the best you've seen in the last year? How about the best show ever?

    Best concert I have been to this year had to be Audioslave in a club of about 150 people.

    Best ever is REALLY tough. I have seen so many good shows over the years.

    Pearl Jam
    Audioslave
    Tool
    Rage against the Machine
    Stone Temple Pilots
    Nirvana
    green day
    Metallica
    Alice in Chains

    I would have to say its a toss up between Tool, Rage, and Pearl Jam

    Just saw AFI last night, might have been the best show ever. Although Tool puts on some great shows too.

    Going to the concert in Austin that a radio is putting on. Only $25 for Ying Yang Twins, Young Bloodz, Young Gunz, Bubba Sparxxx, some other people, and announcing more. First major concert that I will go to, should be a good one, especially for the price.

    if your keeping it to the last year than the best show I saw was
    Phish at the Hampton's Coliseum Hampton, Virginia 1/2-3/03

    This could change as I'm going to be seeing Phish at Nassau Coliseum 11/28/03

    Now Best concert ever has to be New York Run (4 nights of phish)
    10/7-8/99 Nassau Coliseum, Uniondale, Long Island, NY
    10/9-10/99 Pepsi Arena, Albany, NY

    then
    Tool/Fantomas and Thomahawk (saw tool twice )

    Phil Lesh and Friends
    Cold Play

    Best show in the last year has to go hands down to KMFDM's WWIII tour
    I saw them at First Ave in Minneapolis.
    I can't think of many bands/groups that have been around for 20 years that are still making as good of music as KMFDM and putting on live shows that last for 2 hours and never lack for intensity

    KMFDM = Godlike

    Best show ever.... again this is really tough
    best show by Genre

    Alternative - Sonic Youth at the Minneapolis Sculpture Gardens

    Hip Hop (and not the bull shit radio crap or the thugin iced out shit [$0.50 is not Hip Hop])
    - The Roots OK Playa tour [featured Dead Prez]
    The Roots are one of the best live acts in music today

    Industrial/Rock/Metal - NIN Fragility tour [just F'n amazing]

    Punk - Flogging Molly were really good live, but I don't go to a lot of punk shows

    Electronic - Chemical Brothers tour about 4 years ago

    man, i was at that show and it was seriously the best ive ever been to. It kind of wierded my girlfriend out though. The only thing that pissed me off (aside from their crappy opening band, tricky) were the idiots who were throwing their shoes at maynard.

    best show i've ever seen was Dream Theater last year in houston...

    i saw the Blue Man Group a couplea months ago, and they were almost as awesome as Dream Theater, but DT still rules.

    in December i'm going to see the Trans-Siberian Orchestra...i think they might blow Dream Theater away...


    some of my other favorites:

    311
    Paul McCartney
    Alien Ant Farm
    Weird Al Yankovic
    Sum 41
    Prophecy
    Joe Satriani
    King's X
    Pantera


    yupyup...a very wide variety

    best concert this year was Cold @ the CT expo center (great show and i got to meet amd talk to Scooter after :) )

    best concert ever id have to say was Slipknot @ the HTFD civic center (just an insane fuckin show)

    other great concerts
    Cold @ webster
    Nonpoint/Papa Roach @ webster
    Adema/Cold/Staind @ expo center
    Sevendust @ webster

    i definatly prefer smaller venue shows.... seems to be a much better connection with the audience... and more energy from the bands

    still need to see Tool :worthy:
