What are the best concerts you've seen that, for one reason or another, will probably never be seen again? Here's mine: 1. Pink Floyd (No R. Waters, but...) 2. Grateful Dead 3. Jane's Addiction 4. Nirvana 5. Eagles Edited to add Fleetwood Mac last year (no Christine, bah) and Pearl Jam in New Orleans in 1995 with the Ramones as opening act.

Just one for me...Drowning Pool (RIP Dave Williams), though I guess I could see them with their lame new lead singer.
In Heaven, everything is fine.

My wife saw Guns 'N Roses when they were the opening act for Aerosmith and nobody knew who they were yet. Right before or simultaneous with "Sweet Child of Mine" being released. EDIT: I saw Genesis at Three Rivers Stadium ("Invisible Touch" tour).

R.E.M. (w/ Bill Berry) in 1989
Three truths about movies, as noted by Roger Ebert:

* It's not what a movie is about, it's how it is about it.
* No good movie is too long, and no bad movie is short enough.
* No good movie is depressing, all bad movies are depressing.

The Who (with John, but no Keith) from a couple of years back. Richard Marx won a 2004 "Song of the Year" Grammy for co-writing with Luther Vandross on his "Dance With My Father".

1. Pink Floyd (also, no Roger, but will PF ever tour again?) 2. The Who (this is a dual thing, as it was in the no-longer-there Kingdome and with the late, great John E, the concert that The Clash opened; talk about a diverse group of concert-goers!)
And you believe, at heart, everyone's a killer...

I imagine that would be fascinating. I've heard bootlegs of that tour, and the music was fantastic, his voice was terrible, and he seemed bitter and angry, particularly when he sang Something. Yeah, I was born the year after that tour.

In Philly he sounded a bit hoarse but in NYC he was fine. Thing is...he was doing a 3 show, 2 day stint in each city. An evening show, next day matinee and another evening. A fair bit of exercise!

Elton John on the last tour he did with the original classic band line-up (Dee Murray, Davey Johnstone, Nigel Olsson). I had tickets to the first of two nights he played at Manchester. I was offered tickets for the second night and turned them down. At the end of the second show Freddie Mercury came on stage and they did a series of duets...

Yes (with Trevor Horn on vocals)

Oscar Petersen with Ray Brown and Louis Bellsen


Sad Cafe

Yellow Magic Orchestra


Spyro Gyra

Pink Floyd (the first of the post-Walters tours)

I did have tickets for the last ever performance of The Wall. [I was a student at the time, and a fellow student, who found out I'd got these tickets and who loved stirring up trouble and misery fixed it so that [long story] I was compelled to spend the evening of the concert with my professor. I gave the tickets to my then girlfriend who took an old schoolfriend of hers with her to the concert simply because he was the only person she knew who was available that evening. Just guess who got ditched and who she ended up marrying. On the plus side, I do have the poster and programme from the tour, I sorted out the trouble-maker on another occasion, and I didn't like the said girlfriend all that much anyway].

Fruup (anyone else ever heard of them?)

Gordon Giltrap

Comsat Angels

Secret Affair


Nick Lowe

Elvis Costello on the King of America tour (with Elvis Presley's original backing band)


Marillion (with Fish)

Not quite concerts, but have also seen the original cast productions (typically the first weekend they were open) of:

Starlight Express
Les Miserables
Aspects of Love
Martin Guerre

The Moody Blues with Ray Thomas, due to him retiring. No more hearing Ray do his 5 minute flute solo during Legend Of A Mind anymore. Ray retiring is half the reason why I'll never see the band in concert again. The other half is because of my dying and it not feeling right to go to their concert without him.
