Hey Vitaliy, thank for the Whitney permit last season and congrats to your new found luv of ice. Canada awaits....
If you are a SlipKnot fan then you will love Stone Sour. Saw them at Club Nokia and then The Joint at Hard Rock 2 days later on the 15th Corey T absolutely rocks.
Totally shadowed Papa Roach...and I'm a Papa Roach fan

Never got to see Pink Floyd, but my all time favorite concert was the Prince's Trust Concert in Hyde Park London, 1996. Alanis Morisette, Bob Dylan, The Who and Eric Clapton among others for a 15 pound ticket ($25?) on a perfect summer day. Eric Clapton was by far the best, winning the hearts of a very tired crowd late in the evening, modestly thanking them for staying beyond The Who's impressive finale. Best of all, while looking up the lineup to confirm my aging memory on who was there, I found out that Clapton's performance is available on DVD, next stop Amazon.

↑ one of my all time favorites, as some others up thread. two of late worthy in my opinion:

Roger Waters et al ≈ Concert For Hurricane Sandy

Tedeschi Trucks Band ≈ Midnight In Harlem
Some Random Guy

BTW it was in the Visine dropper bottle.

i haven't been around as long as ya'll, but they were still using that trick when i was going to shows 15-20 years later. there was a girl with "it" in a squirt gun at a new year's show once. she was walking around "shooting" people.

The Dead & Dylan in DC, 1986...brutally hot, there was a freak wandering around with a spray bottle misting the crowd....most likely H2O+....

Alison Krauss, numerous times, indoors & out....her voice makes me goose-pimply....

Toots & the Maytals, again numerous, indoors & out...."Funky Kingston"

Taj Mahal & the Hula Blues Band, 2008(?) at the MN Zoo...had a happy-grin hangover for three days...

Gov't Mule at the MN Zoo, absolutely tear-jerking "Into the Mystic" -- Van himself would have cried...

And to substantiate one of the above posts....Tedeschi / Trucks at the MN Zoo, 2012...holy friggin' crap....he's a phenom but she has grown musically by leaps & bounds since they hooked up...chill-inducing...

Rough Justice", "Honky Tonk Women" and "Brown Sugar" were not performed since they were told not to play or were censored, but they had two hugh Honky Tonk inflatables above them on the sides with guys pulling ropes from their rear ends to give you the image of humping so they elected to play the respective b-sides - 'You Can't Always Get What You Want' and 'Bitch".

Paint it black was amazing.

8,000 fans plus it was a standing audience you could not seat in your chair everyone stood. After when they played everyone raved and went nuts. Where I was I could see the Chinese dignitaries they applauded as well, for only one exception: the guy in the center did not show any emotion or stood up or applauded. Must have been the censor.

Plus China being CopyLand there were a lot of counterfeit tickets but they were on the ball and those that had them couldn’t get in.

Think I have some photos will look through my files but was so long ago.

So much good music out there in so many genres.

Keller Williams and Xavier Rudd put on great one man shows.

Ana Sia plays a great set if you like electronic music.

Tool shows shouldn't be missed.

Local shows, go see them. Support your local music scene, even if it's not your favorite music.
