    I saw The King in Mobile, AL, probably less than a year before he died.

    Yes, he was overweight and pretty much in his "lounge act" by then.

    But he was still The King and frankly, put on a great show.

    Gotta give this one a bump - get topic!

    My brother took me (not long after his got his driver's license) to see his favorite band at the time: Dire Straits. This was the fall of '79 and their first US tour. 2400 seater and maybe a half-full house. We stood right up front.

    Wish I'd had the chance to see Randy Rhoads but Knopfler ranks way up there.

    WOW!, a genuine multi-zombie thread from 2007 that's been revived annually up until 2010, and now in 2012 - not bad! ;)

    BTW, I obviously was to more concerts than I would've remembered today ...

    Major props on Big Star. Original Maiden and The Monkees to boot!!

    My band opened for Nirvana on the Bleach tour, 1990. Thunderously loud and heavy - I was kind of let down when Nevermind came out.

    My frequent concert going days are behind me, and I saw most of my holy grail bands: Weezer, CAKE, Ben Folds, Beck, Ozma, Tenacious D :lol:

    But one of my all-time faves, The Flaming Lips eluded me. Then, this summer, they played a 2 night engagement at Liberty Hall in Lawrence KS to celebrate it's 100th anniversary. (Their drummer Kliph Scurlock is a Lawrence native.)

    Me and my band went together as a musical pilgrimage. It was not only the most amazing concert experience of my life, but one of the top 3 moments overall. Such an amazing performance/show.
