    Which one would you pick?

    So many to choose from. But I'd have to go with Monterey on the night the Experience played.

    Yeah, I was thinking that too. Growing up in SF, they played a couple historical venues in Winterland and Kezar Stadium.

    I'd rather sit at the FOH mixer instead of front row.

    It would be a short ride, geographically. I would have him set the device for Boston, where I would be part of the crowd at the Boston Tea Party when they were recording Fleetwood Mac.

    Definitely. I saw them in 93 and they were incredibly tight. Killer set.

    12th was the guitar player, right? So it'd have to be him.

    I'd like to see my first concert again, as I was too young (13) to really, truly, completely absorb what I was experiencing: Humble Pie, July 1971, Asbury Park, NJ.

    Was Frampton still with them at that point? Man, that must have been a loud and awesome show.

    Easy...... Gary Numan, Farewell Concerts, Wembley Arena 1981.

    My mate got us two tickets for the last of the 3 nights but my Mum wasn't happy with us travelling down to London on our own ( we were 14 yrs old at the time ) so she wouldn't let me go.

    I was so upset 'cos I thought I'd missed my chance to see him live ( as he was retiring from all touring ) and, at that time, the lighting/stage show was the largest moving concert stage set there had ever been in the UK ….it was pretty spectacular ( for that era of pop music ).

    The "retirement" only lasted a year or so and I have been to see him play live many many times down the years ( going to see him again at the end of this month )….BUT would have loved to have been one of the lucky guys that got to see him at his commercial peak & putting on huge show.

    The Velvet Underground EPI show at the Valleydale Ballroom where they played Melody Laughter.

    Or the Parliament/Funkadelic concert in Houston, 1976.

    The Velvet Underground’s EPI shows (as the poster above me mentioned), Hawkwind around the time of Space Ritual, or Gabriel-era Genesis.

    It drives me crazy sometimes that these bands spent a bunch of money on these theatrical, highly visual stage setups and then either didn’t film them at all for posterity, or did it so badly that it’s a poor shadow of what it must have been like to be there.
