Which concert would you have given your right arm to have been at?
There are a lot of concerts it would have been soooo much fun to have been to. Shame most great live bands were buried before most of us were even allowed (or in existence) to go to concerts

This is high up on the list - GNR 1988...That voice and the dance, there is a god....guess I should use past tense on that one, tho :p

My right arm is very dear to me, but this is pretty amazing, looks at the crazy crowd!

Good thread idea!

I would not part with my right arm, but the two concerts I would most like to have seen were Bob Dylan at Manchester Free Trade Hall in 1966 and Jimi Hendrix playing the Haleakala Crater in Maui, Hawaii in 1970.

You can see footage of the Dylan show in Scorcese's No Direction Home, and footage of the Hendrix concerts in the motion picture Rainbow Bridge, though I don't know if that would be easy to find.

This is actually from Edinburgh, not Manchester, but it is representative:

This is not my favorite song from the Haleakala shows, but it is representative:

^That Circus concert looks like such a blast. My fave so far from that show is Jumping Jack Flash, it's the neatest dance ever there...and the song seems to suit the mood of the venue.

And salt of the earth too...those yellow outfits...everyting's just so effortlessly fabulous.

Many old picks on here. My heart is definitely in rock music... not necessarily the new rock of today, though.

The Tibetan Freedom Concert in '97 is among my top picks... you've got Radiohead, Beastie Boys, and U2... etc. Great billing.

But the consummate concert expereience would have been at Live Aid in '85... and particularly witnessing this performance... "Bad"...

Yeah, either that or the 60s or, for me, even the 80s (I love the sleaze). I mean, we're just out of luck
