Pirate, they have one on their new album, The Lost Christmas Eve, called "Christmas Jam". It does not sound "christmas-y", but it rocks! I can't stand still when it's on.

GuitarDude-Saw this same show at Arrowhead Stadium in KC in 1992 or 1993 (can't remember right now). GNR sucked, no doubt. Metallica, on the other hand, totally kicked butt! I should've left after their set!

Springsteen during the "Born in the USA" tour. 5 hour concert. Awesome!




EXACTLY, 1984 or 1985. It just rocked, although I think the show I saw was about 4 hours long.

Pulling people out of the ditc...
1979, The Police, performing at the Warehouse in New Orleans (if you wanted a seat, you brought your own, it literally was an old warehouse). They were just starting to make it big, and it was awesome. Played for almost 4 hours.

Second best would probably be Eric Clapton with Mark Knopfler of Dire Straits.

3rd would be The Who in 1983 (their first farewell tour).

I saw Sting and Annie Lennox in Minneapolis in July 2004.
Lennox was good but I actually thought Sting was boring and left before he finished.

I've seen so many shows. The best by far have been:
Aerosmith
Tom Petty
Madonna (I saw her Blonde Ambition in the 80s - I think I was 12??? And I saw her Reinvention tour last year)

Stone Temple Pilots, Smashing Pumpkins, Nirvana, Foo Fighters, Springsteen - were also great shows too.

Sugar Ros, radio city music hall. (I will kiss anyone who knows who they are!)

Stevie Nicks, greatest hits tour, The Gorge at George, Washington. (it was outdoors, on the egde of a canyon, full moon, and the air could make you high, is it possible to see her in a more appropriate setting.)
