This is a Great thread! All of you guys combined have seen some EXCELLENT SHOWS!!! I'm jealous of the older guys that got to see the classic rock greats... especially those of who've seen Zeppelin, or Robert Plant solo... (especially you Dave, living so close!!! so jealous)I would have given anything to see john Bonham in his prime jammin Moby Dick. Closest I got to that was seeing Jimmy Page when he toured with the Black Crowes playing Zep tunes... not nearly the same. At least now theres concert DVDs! I'm a live music junky, and theres no way to list EVERY show I've ever seen... but i'm gonna have some fun down memory lane, and in no particular order
(and some of them ARE laughable as I look back... so I don't mind!)

A perfect Circle (2 or 3x)
