    stood front row in front of vai at that show in jackson, ms. one of the best i've seen as well. enormous stage & light show. great setlist & opener.
    a few others that are in the mix are bon jovi w/ skid row biloxi and aerosmith w/ white lion. both shows were in biloxi, ms.

    recently, i saw accept at the house of blues in new orleans. that might have been the best performance from a band i've seen.

    Queensryche - Empire Tour, Absolutely amazing show.

    Alanis Moorisette - Roseland Ballroom right before Jagged Little Pill hit hard...
    Kiss - Reunion Tour '96 at MSG Took my little brother to his first concert.
    Police - Reunion tour Giants Stadium, My wife wore her '84 Synchronicity shirt

    Yep, I saw them in Salt Lake City. Don't remember the light show, just stood up front near Vai and was amazed watching how effortlessly he played everything.

    Not sure if he did the same thing at your show, but what I saw made me to NOT want many of his picks he threw into the crowd. :-/ just thought about that.

    Made me do a double take as I saw him on 7/30/90, my 21st birthday.

    Best concert I have been to is any one of the many times I saw The Radiators at The Riverview Supper Club in Mpls. Followed closely by The Grateful Dead 7/17/89 at Alpine Valley, or maybe Bonner Springs Kansas in '91, when I could have spit my gum out onto the stage.

    Way too many to list. But if I had to pick just one it would be Pink Floyd '94 at Giants Stadium. I went both nights but the first night was the best because I wasn't expecting them to play all of DSOTM.

    Probably Queen a couple times in the 70's and Toto after their "Hydra" album. They were excellent musicians as well as writers.
