    Oingo Boingo, 'Dead Man's Party', Halloween night, at Irvine Meadows Amphitheater, 1991. My companion thought I was on splits...

    The last concert I have been to is Hannah Montana, 2008 or 2009. When she was HUGE. I should probably go to at least one more before I die so that is not what I go out on.

    I made it up to that comp the next year when I scored tickets from a member for him to see Ty Detmer and the Packers play a preseason game against the Rams.

    I couldn't go because I had Dodgers tickets with my comp, a second companionship, and a pair of Sisters. Tom Selleck played in a USC alumni exhibition game. Brett Butler and D. Straw each hit a homerun. One of the Elders got a little naughty (by mission standards) with a Sister in the back seat on the way home.

    This post sounds like grapevine.

    Favorite concert by far, for sentimental reasons: Ray Charles in Abravanel Hall a few months before he died.

    Funnest concert, by far: Oingo Boingo and Red Hot Chili Peppers at Parkwest. Flea and Anthony Kiedes were running off stage to put on oxygen masks to avoid passing out. Tons of energy.

    Wild: Black Flag (I think) at the Speedway Cafe. Early 80's. I was WAY under age.

    I was at that same Boingo concert. It was a lot of fun. I had forgotten about the need for oxygen masks.

    The other opening band was Food For Feet, or something like that. Wasn't that basically Boingo without Danny Elfman?

    That's right, there was another opening act and it was some of the Boingo crew. I missed most of that set because I arrived late. I learned that day to make sure the vehicle I'm in has a jack and spare tire. That was the last time I let my wife convince me to go to a show in her brother's car.

    My first concert was N*SYNC at the fair grounds in 1997 or 1998.

    I've also seen a few Christian rock artists. And Evanescence.

    Yeah, my concert history is pure shit.

    Best concerts:

    MMW in Seattle. At the time they were never hitting Utah on tour and their west coast dates usually were only California shows, Seattle, and maybe Vegas. The were touring on an album with horns so each city they have local horn players sit in. I've seen MMW 5 times and that show really stands out as the best. All 4 were good.

    Garage a Trois in SLC. I love anything with Skerik and Garage a Trois really is a good live band.

    Soulive in SLC. Opened for Galactic. The music was great. Soulive are crappy songwriters but they tear it up live.

    Critters Buggin in Portland. Again, Skerik = great show, each and every time.

    Someday, I will see Zorn live. It is something I must do before I die. Unfortunately, pretty much the only way to see Zorn live is to travel to New York or Europe. He rarely plays anywhere else. Maybe an occasional show here and there in San Francisco or LA.

    Best concert I have been to was Korn and Rob Zombie. Zombie puts on one hell of a show.

    Kid Rock wasn't too bad either. Jerry Cantrell opened for him with his band Big Brown Trucker. He was playing a bunch of his Alice in Chains songs.

    I still want to see Pearl Jam in concert.

    Janet Jackson Rhythm Nation 1814. During "Black Cat" Ms. Jackson rips open her white button down shirt exposing a black bra, a move that she would later take to even greater heights on the Super Bowl. At that moment I knew I was no longer a boy, but had crossed over into manhood.

    First concert was Kenny Loggins at Park West. I was in the 6th grade and my older sister took me. Yeah, I was hot shit hanging with high school girls at a concert!

    Craziest concerts: Living Color at the Speedway Cafe, Dead Kennedys at the Indian Walk-in Center. I was a scared to death 14 year old!

    I have seen the Dead four times: Park West, Delta Center, Red Rocks, Oakland Colliseum (Mardi Gras concert). I didn't "need a miracle".

    Jimmy Buffett: St. Louis, Riverport Amphitheater
    James Taylor at Telluride Bluegrass Fest - backed by Strength in Numbers

    My favorite shows are all small venue/intimate settings for lesser known bands. James McMurtry (6 or 7 times) but best at the Zephyr. God Street Wine at Mississippi Nights in St. Louis. The Samples, multiple locations. David Wilcox, multiple locations.

    Biggest concert regrets: on my mission in Milano summer of 91, I was offered tickets to Sting by the owner on Beck Beer (apparently one of Gordon's personal friends) and I didn't go. I didn't want to break a rule. Stupid. I also stood outside of a theater where Joe Jackson was performing and could hear the music, but my comp was a piece and told me he would report me. Never had another chance to see Joe Jackson live. That sucks.

    Next show: Warren Haynes at The Depot

    I am a big James McMurtry fan. Where have you seen him play?

    Recently at The State Room. A couple times at the Zephyr (he recorded some of his live disc there and loved the sound system), Library Square as pat of the Arts Festival a few years back, Bar in Kimball Junction (I forget the name). It seems like he comes to Salt lake almost annually. He is one of my all-time favorites.

    Memorable Concerts that come to mind:

    Fleetwood Mac - Rumours Tour - Lincoln, NE
    Bruce Springsteen & the E Street Band - The River Tour - Ames, Iowa
    Tom Petty & the Heartbreakers - Hard Promises Tour - Omaha, NE
    U2 - Unforgettable Fire Tour - Denver, CO
    Anson Funderburgh & the Rockets featuring Sam Meyers - Zoo Bar; Lincoln, NE

    And then came the kids. Sadly, I've been to few concerts since becomming a family man.

    First show: Gin Blossoms/Toad the Wet Sprocket (I've since seen Toad like 9 times.)
    Braggart: Young MC, PM Dawn, and Tone Loc in Logan circa 2001. That's right, washed up and awesome.
    Above average shows: Radiohead-Chicago, Arcade Fire-Coachella, Bright Eyes-Orpheum in LA and Kilby Court, B.B. King-Kingsbury Hall, Tina Turner/Lionel Ritchie-That's right. I said it.
    Worst show ever-INXS

    I always thought Gin Blossoms and TTWS were two of the bigger bright spots of the nineties. I've seen both many times and always enjoyed the shows. I did see a Gin Blossoms show in the early nineties where The Refreshments completely blew them off the stage.

    I'm pretty sure the first concert of my choice was ZZ Top at the Delta Center in 1992ish. Back in the day Z93 put on a classic rock festival (called LiveStock if I remember correctly) where I saw Iron Butterfly, Blue Oyster Cult, the Doobies, and others. I also saw Ted Nugent at Rockfest(?) at the Utah State Fair Grounds sometime in the 90s.

    The bands I have seen the most times are Mogwai (5) and Built to Spill (5).

    The greatest concert I went to was ATP NY festival in the Catskills in 08. For my tastes I don't think the lineup could have been any better. The highlights for me:

    Meat Puppets
    Built To Spill
    Tortoise
    Low
    Shellac
    Silver Mt Zion
    Harmonia
    Les Savy Fav
    Lightning Bolt
    Trail of Dead
    Robin Guthrie
    Bob Mould
    Mercury Rev
    Yo La Tengo
    Mogwai
    Dinosaur Jr
    My Bloody Valentine

    Such an amazing show. MBV was so loud I coughed several times because my lungs were being vibrated.

    The first concert I ever saw was as a junior high kid.

    Amazing experience that I'll never forget.

    I've seen that band a dozen times since and always enjoy the show... but it's never been as ground shaking.

    I've seen over a hundred concerts since the first... in venues all over the Western United States... Probably because this was my first.
