Gwar. Never saw them, but I did see their ill-fated copycat band, Green Jello. They opened for Testament. It was cool to see a big foam Barney Rubble jump into the crowd. And I think the Cow-God's eyes lit up... That was like 15 years ago...

I saw Gwar years ago. It's a really entertaining show. Their music leaves a little to be desired but the music isn't the point. Nothing like being covered in blood.

I have to go with Metallica. It may be the lame answer, but I've seen them twice and was happy about it both times. You pay a lot of money for it, but they play a decently long show. And they've been doing it for a while now, they know how to sound good and make the crowd satisfied.

Pink Floyd was visually entertaining but my seat was crappy.

I've passed up some good concerts cause I just don't feel into it anymore. I'm too old and lazy I guess.

I really, truly wish I could agree with you, but I was nothing but disappointed by live Metallica.  It was the Black Album tour, my 18th b-day, and it was quite possibly one of the most boring concerts I've ever been to.   It was such a let-down.  It was like they had no energy, they didn't jam on anything, they just played everything like it sounded on the album.  

Just my opinion, but I was bummed.

Re: best live show?

Sorry bout your Metallica let down. Both times I saw them were also on that 2-3 year long Black album tour.

I have a special spot for the first time I saw them cause it was my first concert. And like a dumb 15 year old, I had some big guy throw me in the air so I could "crowdsurf". I got thrown over the fencing onto the cold concrete floor between the floor and stage, and yanked up by my arm around my back by a huge security guy, who said "DON'T DO THAT AGAIN!" and pointed me to the way back to the floor. And this was before the concert even started... we all had a good time.

Second time was better, it was outside, and there was some cool opening acts: Suicidal Tendencies (and now the ST bassist is in Metallica- neat) Candlebox, and Fight- some Rob Halford band he tried to do after Judas Priest. Alice in Chains was supposed to be there, but Layne Staley couldn't stay off smack long enough to do a full tour... anyways, during the Candlebox set, they let around 200 or so people into a walled-off area closer to the stage, so my friends, the future-wife, and I got to see Metallica and Candlebox from about 12 feet away.

Good show from them boys indeed, I've seen them maybe 10 times...lost count, but every time they did not disappoint.

Re: best live show?

I like the "new" Metallica. (their new style that arose a few years back) Does that make sense? Maybe the word I'm looking for is that they seem more industrial. (st.anger is what gives that thought.) I've never been to their concert tho, and rarely hear their music. But out of curiousity, do you know if have new band members, writers, etc that may have brought on this new style

Re: best live show?

St. Anger definetly has a different sound to it, even compared to the albums directly preceding it. I like it a lot. The only new member in the band is bassist Robert Trujillo, formerly playing for Ozzy and before that, Suicidal Tendencies. As far as I know (I could get up and check, but i think I'm right) their producer has been Bob Rock for a while now, and he played bass for the recording of St. Anger while they were looking for a replacement for Jason Newstead, who quit to pursue his own thing.

So while there is an awesome new member, he couldn't have had that much to do with the "new sound", cause he wasn't there yet. I think they changed styles slightly just cause they wanted to. Sounding the way they want to sound without giving in to the masses or trends has always been one of Metallica's best traits...
