    I was listening to my very awesome Fear factory CD (mechanized) and it reminded me of one the best concerts I ever went to. These guys were so loud and the place was small and packed. It felt as if the whole building was shaking to the sound of the double bass pedals. Such an awesome show. What's your favorite concert?

    Deftones or NIN in the early 2000's. Those shows kicked some serious ass.

    I would like to mention Slipknot also because that show was nuts lol. You know its a kickass show when a wheelchair guy is rocking out and banging into people lol:lol

    Aerosmith 2003.

    Steven Tyler, in the middle of Walk This Way, gets a trapeze swing lowered down. When Joe Perry kicks off the solo, Tyler grabs the bar, hooks it with his knees, clenches the mic in his teeth, swings out over the crowd slapping out high fives to everyone. Just as the solo wraps up, he does a backflip off the trapeze onto the stage and goes right back into singing.

    Yeah.

    Rock wise i Seen this guys:
    Metallica (back when they actually played thrash, suckers!)
    Pearl jam (ten promotion tour)
    Smashing pumpkins (mcatis)
    Rem (monster tour)
    Bon jovi
    Foo fighter (debut album)

    But ive been gigs by bryan adams (twice even), phil collins, jamiroquai n sting and its always impressive when these guys do their thing because the solo guys really know how to put on a show. Also saw bjork at a club and her live renditions are crazy, how theyre so close to album sounding considering her vocal shtick.

    Being a gnr fan i saw slash recently and came away pretty impressed how he managed to carry his own tour. Myles? Kennedy was great at the mic.

    Regretted missing coldplay, robin williams and rhcp when they came around, hopefully ill catch u2 one of these days but most likely would need to take a trip to oz.

    I also went to see tool when they came to reading, Pa. that was a good show but some morons ruined my time because they kept trying to mosh, to tool! Most tool fans know that a tool show is like nothing else. Its quite a show they put on. Relax and enjoy with these guys.

    A Pillar concert inside a small bar that could only hold about a hundred people. It was simply amazing since the show was so personal. Rob (the lead singer) actually took my camera, shot pictures of the band then of myself in the crowd. Been to many concerts since then, but this one left a mark on me.

    I'll always have fond memories for my first gig - Sum 41 waaaaay back in the day. Having said that, the best show I've been to was 2 years ago when my wife and I went to the Killers. Frak me they ruled.
