Re: best live show?

I want to know if anyone's been to a Buckcherry concert... because I think that's the only concert I've ever wanted to go see. (I've never been to a real concert unless you count a few amateur local ones that usually suck...) I'm not really a fan of live music, because usually they screw up the balance and it just sounds like noise... or like they're eating the microphone...

I am saying Disturbed. I am not a HUGE fan of them but like the music. I have seen Shinedown, Seether, Greenday (which is a close second), and many many more.... but Disturbed was awsome, and Dave was good about making the concert more fun and "personal".... I think he was into more than some of the people that went to see it.

Lucero was the most fun I think I ever had at a show. The first time I saw them was insane. People packed into a small club. They played every song I wanted to hear. Unfortunately, if you haven't seen them it's too late. They play slightly larger venues now which equals less intimate. Also they take themselves and their music a little more serious. It's never too late to like their old stuff though. If you like alt country it's untouchable.

I saw KISS in 1976 whan I was 15.  It was my all-time #1.  This was before "stadium seating" and I was pressed right against the stage board directly between Paul and Ace.  Still the best show in my memory.

2nd best for me was one I saw of Def Leppard in the 80's.  That was their in-the-round stage show before Steve Clark died and right after Rick came back from losing his arm.

In my 45 years, I have seen a good number of shows (could not possibly list or remember) but those two really stand out.

I saw Def Leppard shortly after Rick came back, and it was absolutely AMAZING to watch.  It was the in-the-round stage, can't remember for the life of me if it was Madison Square garden or Brendan Byrne arena, since I knew guys who worked security in both of them.  Anyway, when my sister and I got there, we ran into one of my security guard friends, and he bumped our seats up.  We wound up in the area that traditionally would have been behind the stage, but with the round, spinning thing, "behind" didn't exist.  We were in the 2nd row, but since it was what would have been the back of a normal stage, we were raised up to stage level.  WAY better view of the stage than you could have gotten with floor seats.  To watch him banging away on those drums, one armed and barefoot, was just cool to watch.  And then it hit me, "wait, he's playing an older tune, and he sounds just like he did last time I saw them in concert, when he had 2 arms."  I was quite impressed.

[/quote]We must have seen the same tour. Goose bumps covered me when Joe announced "The return of Rick Allen the Thunder God" and Rick did that awesome solo while his drum kit rotated around. Loved the gym shorts and t-shirt! And the full sound from those electronic drums was amazing.

On a sadder note, I saw Def L the next time they were in Lexington and this was pretty soon after Steve Clark died. Vivian Campbell had just joined.

I was bummed pretty much the whole show.

There's a few bands I just won't go to see because they've replaced someone due to a death or fighting, or whatever stupid crap rock stars get their panties in a bunch over.  Have you seen the new guy singing lead for Journey?  They cloned Steve Perry, it's frightening!

HAHA...I saw Kiss in 1975 in Denver, and then again like 20 or 25 years later when they did the makeup reunion tour again...damn near identical shows.   Both rocked though.

Hmmm....my favorite show of all time, damn thats tough.  I've seen hundreds...if not thousands of performances of various types, and I have a hard time picking just one.    Might be one of the Doc Martin performances I've seen....
