THE BEST CONCERT I EVER WENT TO
- •For my 17th birthday my dad took me to see Paul McCartney. It was the opening night of his tour - and he opened Citi Field that night. I love The Beatles like I love my legs; their music is part of my body. Paul played for close to five hours with almost forty songs. He cried talking about performing at Shea Stadium with John, George, and Ringo.And then Billy Joel came on stage and performed with him. Billy even played piano. It was spectacular. Since it was the first night of the tour, the concert came out on DVD and CD. My dad and I bought both and when I listen to Hey Jude, I can almost hear myself singing along. It's one of my favorite memories with my dad. I still dream about that night.
- •Kings of Leon - MIA 2014I was drunk, alone (@k8mcgarry left me... Lol), and soaking wet (it poured all day) on the Ben Franklin Parkway but I persevered and had the best time. 3 other KOL shows over the years have been cancelled on me over the years, so this was a big deal.Suggested by @tmarchewski
- •The first show of The Cranberries reunion tour in 2009 in Baltimore.It was a small venue and I was so close to the stage, it was unbelievable. They sounded like no time had passed.Suggested by @whatsthefracas
- •Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers at the Hollywood Bowl in 2006Stevie Nicks came out as a special guest and sang 3 songs with the heartbreakers! The strokes opened for TPATH. The set list was great. The reason I love seeing Petty live is that he'll play the hits but he's also going to give you 2-3 songs you weren't expecting to hear and he's gonna kill it. This time he covered Bo Diddley "I'm a man," "oh well" by Fleetwood Mac and "mystic eyes" by Van Morrison in the middle of the encore - it was epic!Suggested by @HisDudeness
