John for sure brought his ax to the rink this night I'm here to tell ya.
Tour heads packing the rink, having straggled up from the previous show at Shea Stadium in New York, were lacking in sleep but not enthusiasm. The first power chords to 'Twist and Shout' signaled to all that this was gonna be one of THOSE nights. The jamming was intense; the transitions from song to song seamless. The boys were really listening to one another; I'll never forget Paul's bass solo during the jam in the middle of 'Act Naturally.' Ringo's ability to turn on a dime as the band ranged from melodic rock 'n roll to the dissonant outer reaches of deep space had me stoked. I basically never stopped twirling. And then George looked right at me during 'Dizzy Miss Lizzie.' The show closing 'I'm Down' was exhilarating. We headed out into the parking lot exhausted, not entirely sure how we'd make it to Atlanta for the next night's show. But we knew we had just heard something we wouldn't soon forget.

... did a decent concert earlier this year (though, admittedly, I would've preferred to have seen Gilmour.)

The Cure, not so good. No keyboards.

Hoping Neil comes down for his Chrome Dreams II tour.

Amazing Diversity

Deadheads have great taste in music, as I checked out all five pages! John Prine was awesome, I also liked George Thorogood, The Allmans, Rat Dog, Pink Floyd, Black Crowes.

too many to mention, but...

I'll give it a try.

Lollapalooza 1991, Dallas: coming together of generation x. All the high school subcultures of the 80's: hippie, punk, metalhead, hip hop all came together. Jane's Addiction, Siousie and the Banshees, Living Colour, Violent Femmes, Ice T w/Body Count, Butthole Surfers, Henry Rollins Band. Never been to a show as profound.

King Crimson Thrak tour, Houston 1995. Heavy, loud, mindblowing. Made up for awful crowd.

David Gilmour April 2007, Chicago. With Rick Wright. Very Intimate, loved the 30 mintue Echoes.
Roger Waters Sept 2007, NYC. With Nick Mason (which means I saw all of Pink Floyd in 2007). Great sound and visuals.

George Clinton and P-Funk Allstars, Houston 1997. With Bootsy Collins Band. Best show I could've asked for, very heavy, psychedelic set in the beginning, then picked up and got funky.

Prince, Houston 1989. Lovesexy tour. He hadn't been around since Purple Rain. Great way to celebrate my high school graduation.

Pink Floyd, Houston/Dallas 1994. Division Bell tour, even tho I would've preferred them with Waters, they were one of the few bands that could pull off a show in a stadium. quad sound was amazing, amazing lighting effects.

Santana, Houston 1994. Lots of tshirts from the above mentioned show. Was blown away by the jamming, including Miles Davis' Sketches of Spain.

YO LA TENGO!

Never been to one of their shows that did not absolutely floor me. Amazing dynamics from teeth-gnashing screamingly sick feedback to beautiful quiet pin-drop whispered ballads. Who else can get the Arkestra to sit in with them??
