    Grand Funk (best concert, ever), Loggins and Messina, Supremes, Dionne Warwick, James Taylor, BB King, Pacific Gas & Electric (who?), Joy of Cooking (who??), Skillet, Project 86, Newsboys, Joe Cocker (wow!), Emerson, Lake, & Palmer, The Eagles. I'm sure there are a few more but the brain is turning to pudding.

    Jimmy Buffet
    Eric Clapton
    Billy Preston
    BB King
    Bonnie Raitt
    Smash Mouth
    The Eagles
    Steppenwolf (w/ John Kay)
    Metallica
    Alice in Chains
    James Taylor
    Bruce Springsteen
    Dan Hicks
    Jefferson Starship (w/ Craig Chaquico on guitars)
    Trans-Siberian Orchestra (excellent rock opera)
    String Cheese Incident (awesome, little-known band)
    Audioslave
    Andy McKee (classical/modern contemporary acoustic guitarist)
    And a lot more I'm sure I'm forgetting...

    Unfortunately most of my real favorites (Pink Floyd, Led Zeppelin, the Greatful Dead, etc...) weren't touring anymore by the time I was getting into the concert scene.

    Too bad most concerts are defenseless victim zones.

    Peace,
    Pete Zaria.

    HotGuns, mind if I ask what year you saw Pink Floyd and which album tour they were playing at the time? :) I wish I'd gotten to see them live, just once.

    I had tickets to the very last Waylon concert... but I didnt go.

    I hate crowds, so I avoid things like concerts, but I've made some exceptions from time to time.

    Good grief this is going to date me.

    Emerson, Lake and Palmer with a 40 piece orchestra for backup.
    Styx
    Supertramp
    Ritchie Blackmore's Rainbow
    Max Webster
    Several real ol' fashion fiddlers contests before they became the "in" thing in the '70's.
    Just missed Pink Floyds Dark Side of the Moon Concert, tickets were sold out!

    Then I discovered true High Fidelity Stereo and how much better the music was without the pain of the crowds. Never went to another one again! Oh, for a Macintosh 25 watt tube amp with the hand wound transformers again. Those things could level a city block with no distortion with a good preamp and some good speakers. But then that's only a rumor I've heard.......

    Kiss, Blue Oyster Cult, REO Speedwagon, Styx, Rush, Kansas, Loverboy, Asia, Brett Michaels (former lead from Poison), Black Sabbath, and maybe some others I can't remember. Most of these were at the then new Kansas Coliseum north of Wichita in the late 70's to early 80's. Brett Michaels was January last year at the Icehouse in Bentonville, AR.
