Has anyone mentioned Hotblack Desiato and Disaster Area?
Neil Young- Rust Never Sleeps, the concert at the Cow Palace that the film came from. It was unbearable, the only place that wasn't painfully loud was out in the lobby. We were behind the stage, which was fed by a separate, smaller PA system than the rest of the hall, and we still had to hold our ears closed the whole time. Then when I read an interview with Neil where he said that he did it intentionally because he wanted it to be "The loudest F*****G thing that anyone had ever heard", it made me really mad that he had so much disregard for his fan's hearing. I believe it's one of the reasons that I have severe tinnitus.
The next loudest was Jo Jo Gunne at Winterland, with the guitar player playing slide on a Dan Amstrong plexiglass guitar, which was unbearably bright, and at the volume of a jet engine. And when he'd move the slide up and down the strings he didn't mute them at all. It was one of the worst concert experiences of my life, and physically painful.
Black Sabbath in 1978
King Crimson in 1982
Drive-By Truckers in 2015
It's either Soul Asylum at New Horizons in Richmond, VA in the late '80s, or Husker Du at the 9:30 in DC. The encores at Mould's first solo tour at 9:30 might have beat both. It's all about sound pressure levels, not size of venue
Johnny Winter in a small club in Santa Cruz in the mi--70's, through a cranked Twin- brutal...
Van halen the band was loud but not to loud . that band at the volume was really amazing.
seeing Hendrix at Winterland He was loud but not modern loud, that was a long time ago and live sound engineering and gear have come a long way.
nah, thats stupid loud imho being able to feel the 60 cycle hum from the pa in your chest is too loud.
Joe Perry Project in my College Gym, 81-82. He cleared the gym it was so loud. I was on committee that brought him in - asked his mgr to turn it down - "that's the sound that made Joe Perry famous" was his quote.
I saw Whitesnake in Houston, middle '80s. Pretty dang loud. My friend and I stayed at the back of a very large club venue and survived only because they had a fifty cent bar special every couple of tunes.
Always on 11!
And first Iron Maiden concert I saw in early 80’s
Dave Murry was cranked
Maybe Molly Hatchet around 1980.
Allman Brothers Band in 1980. Dickey Betts guitar was LOUD! Dangerous Dan's guitar was up there too.
I saw Nazareth in the 70's and they were noticeably louder than any band I have heard .
I saw Ted Nugent with Alcatrazz opening when Yngwie had just started with them there
Kevin Shields- My Bloody Valentine
Weird body stuff starts to happen when you are exposed to high volume.

Van Halen in boston about 12 years ago. Nothing enjoyable to be had. Just awful. It was pain management all night.
Mogwai 20th aniversary gig Glasgow Barrowland ballroom.
