Get the time machine out. Or maybe maybe it was a show you could have attended but no one would trade a shift with you at Roy Rogers. It could be an important show historically or just important to you. Here are mine in no particular order.

1980 Reading Festival - Rory Gallagher, UFO, Pat Travers, Gary Moore, Iron Maiden, Def Leppard, and most important of all, the triumphant return of Slade. They were huge in the mid 70's but by 1980 they were doing club gigs for beer money. They got the last minute slot because the Blizzard of Ozz couldn't make it at the last minute. They played a heart stopping set and kept their career going another half a decade.

1977 Day on the Green - Peter Frampton, Lynyrd Skynyrd, Santana, Outlaws. Picture perfect day and maybe Skynyrd's best show ever. Frampton was bigger than Jesus by this point so I'm sure it would have been fantastic. Santana was incapable of putting on a bad show.

1981 Pontiac, MI - Rolling Stones, Iggy Pop, Santana, The Clash. This is about as eclectic as you can possibly get. But having the balls to have Iggy open for you in Michigan makes me admire the Stones even more. I saw all these bands in '81 except the Clash who I had seen in '79 and '82. But all of them together? Crikey.

1973 New York, NY - The Palladium New Years Eve. KISS/Teenage Lust/Iggy Pop/Blue Oyster Cult. Iggy makes my list twice and while I'm certainly a fan it's more of him being in the right place at the right time. The reason for this show would be the birth of KISS. Two short years later I saw almost the same show on NYE except the headliners and the openers were reversed. I'm friends with Harold Black from Teenage Lust on Facespace and he's a very very cool guy.

1975 Los Angeles, CA - The Forum. The mighty mighty Zeppelin. This is the greatest bootleg I have ever heard. Bonham was not even human on this night. Zeppelin got slogged for their performances on a lot of nights during the '75 tour because Page had injured his hand. This night was certainly not one of them. I always wanted to go to a show at the Forum anyway to check the high quality pussy content.

I could spend hours thinking about this, but here's 5 that I can come up with after a few minutes of consideration.

In chronological order:

1. Led Zeppelin at MSG 1977 - I was born June 2, 1977 and Zeppelin was at MSG June 7-13 for 6 dates.  These were actually the first shows played at MSG of my lifetime (not counting Chuck Berry, who actually played MSG the day I was born).  I've always romanticized this tour quite a bit, although they were probably better earlier.  The atmosphere at MSG was supposedly unreal and this was the last hurrah for arguably America's greatest band.

2. Monsters of Rock at Donnington 1983 - Which one to choose?  I switched from 1986 to 1983 because the former had too much overlap with my #5 pick.  In 1983 the show was headlined by the unusual combination of Whitesnake and Meatloaf, with support from ZZ Top, Twisted Sister, Dio, and the criminally underrated Diamond Head.  An amazing bill of 6 hungry bands in their primes crushing it.
 
3. Queen at Nebworth Park 1986 - The final Queen performance, also notorious for both a fan being stabbed to death and another fan giving birth.  Now that's a show.

4. Aerosmith and GNR at The Meadowlands 1988 - Aerosmith's comeback tour with a young GNR opening and filming the video to "Paradise City" in front of an absolutely packed stadium.

5. Moscow Peace Festival at Central Lenin Stadium 1989 - The "Just Say No to Drugs" show where all the bands on the bill celebrated by doing even more drugs than usual.  And that was a lot pf drugs because the bands were Ozzy, Motley Crue, Scorpions, Bon Jovi, Skid Row, and Cinderella.  Also an incredible international moment in history for the crumbling Soviet Union to bring in all these western acts.

I was at two of these shows.


The second night in Zep's seven night stand. I think I've told the story here before. The stage is on the east end of MSG. This show was getting near the Summer Solstice aka Longest Day of the Year. No opening act and Zep started pretty much on time at around 8:10. Someone opened a door at the top of the Garden on the west side and the setting sun came shining through to the stage and it illuminated Robert Plant in natural sunlight until security shut the door. I had been to quite a few shows by this time but the crowd at the Zeppelin show was just so much more "sophisticated" than say an Aerosmith or KISS crowd. Greatest night of my life.

Gun n Roses at Giants Stadium in 1988 was just amazing. Gunners were the openers on a three band bill with Deep Purple in the middle and Aerosmith on top. GnR were everything they were advertised to be. This was my second time seeing them as I had seen them the year before at the Felt Forum with Great White. Deep Purple did a fantastic show but pissed the crowd off because they came on over an hour late due to the fact they couldn't get their lasers to work. Ian Gillan singing the last verses of Speed King hanging off the stage right speaker cabinets is something I'll never forget. This was one of my favorite Aerosmith shows and I've seen them 20 times. They were hitting on all cylinders this night.

Weird, I was going to start a this very same thread.

Here's what I can think of at the moment:

The Beatles, Litherland Town Hall, 12/27/60. Recently returned from the crucible of Hamburg, this was the show where The Beatles blew away the locals with the ferocity of their playing and charismatic stage presence, nearly causing a riot in the crowd. It was still two years out from Beatlemania but those who were in attendance say the band were a revelation.

U2, Red Rocks, Colorado, 6/5/83. Sure, it's available on audio bootlegs and has been on video since that year, but to have been there must have been special. You had the Red Rocks amphitheater setting, the weather, and a band with real momentum, one that was in the process of launching itself into superstardom. Great set list and complete bond between band and audience. And for good measure, it was before Bono became a complete tool.

Live Aid, London, 7/13/85. I wouldn't have minded being in Philly either, but London had the better performances. This is just a nostalgia trip for me.

Talking Heads/The Ramones, CBGB, 6/20/75. The Talking Heads' first show. The band's playing was likely not up the level of what they could do just a couple years later, and I'm not even a fan of The Ramones, but come on. How could you not want to see a historic show like this?

I am not a big concert guy, but here are a few I'd have liked to see.

- Prince was going on a summer 1990 tour of Europe. He wasn't promoting an album and instead would perform his greatest hits. A month before the tour, apparently deciding he and his backing band needed to play in front of a big crowd in order to tone up their sound, Prince announced on Friday May 4, 1990 that he would play a concert at the St. Paul Civic Center on Sunday May 6, 1990. The price of the tickets? $10 apiece. 

I wasn't a huge Prince fan the way some around here are, but certainly enjoyed his big hits, so the idea of seeing him perform mostly radio songs without deep album cuts and B sides was very appealing. Getting tickets was a big problem though. Camping out wasn't an option. I had school which made calling next to impossible since there were some things going on I could not miss and seemed important then even though now I can't remember what they were. All seats were gone in 2 hours except for ones behind the stage and scattered singles. Those disappeared not long after that. Over 17,000 people attended. I wasn't one of them.

On Saturday May 5, 1990, I was in the St. Paul Civic Center to see what turned out to be the last ever AWA house show in the Twin Cities, the one with Ric Flair wrestling Brian Pillman with them on loan from WCW. The card drew a small crowd and the partially finished stage was at one end of the stands. My buddy and I joked about finding a place in the building to hide until the show the next night.  

Here is the setlist.

1. The Future
2. 1999
3. Housequake
4. Sexy Dancer
5. Kiss
6. Purple Rain
7. Take Me With U
8. Alphabet Street
9. It Takes Two (cover of the Rob Base & DJ EZ Rock song)
10. The Question of U
11. Ain't No Way (cover of Aretha Franklin)
12. Nothing Compares 2 U (Prince wrote it, Sinead O'Connor went to #1 with it earlier that year)
13. Batdance
14. Scandalous
Encore
15. Baby I'm a Star
16. Respect (Aretha Franklin had the big hit, Otis Redding hit with it first and I believe Prince used Redding's arrangement)
17. Partyman

Oasis played The Uptown Bar & Cafe in Minneapolis on October 14, 1994. They were already a big deal in the UK and were gaining momentum stateside. It would have been cool to see them in such a small venue. The setlist was "Definitely Maybe" in its entirety, a B side from one of that album's singles, and the encore cover of "I Am The Walrus". The mother of Bob and Tommy Stinson of The Replacements tended bar there and the band played there as did Nirvana before they blew up. It had an always interesting crowd and great fries. The entire neighborhood changed over time and this earthy joint's building was sold, torn down, and replaced by an Apple Store. 

- I dig Canadian power pop band Sloan. There is a big Canadian expat community here plus a decent sized fan base, so they always stop here on their relatively brief American tours. Conflicts and other circumstances have caused me to the miss their last four concerts here. The last three of the four at least were situations in which I knew in advance it was a no go. The first time, I only learned they were in town on the night of the show and rushed to the venue, figuring that even though the start time was 8:00 PM and it was now well past then, the band would probably have some sort of opening act and not get on stage until 10:00 PM. Nope. I arrived at 10:30 and the show was already done with the club getting ready for DJs and dancing in a short while.

You know it's really fucking annoying but even when I was a teenager I got the sense that I had already missed all the cool shit.  But I figured that in 30 years I'd be able to look back and realize that I saw plenty of historic shows.  And that just never fucking happened.  I started going to shows regularly in the mid-late '90s and then in the first decade of the 2000s I probably averaged 75 shows a year from arena acts to small club bands.  The arena acts were nostalgia acts from the '70s-'90s even then and no new ones ever really emerged, and the club bands never made it.  The whole rock genre basically died. 

The closest I could've come (if I had wanted to) was seeing Lady Gaga when she was a nobody and some of my friends would go to her shows at the small NYC clubs.  I never did go, and when she made it it was of course as a pop act (although as far as pop stars go she was the one who paid her dues and come up like an old school rock star). 

There are plenty of rock/metal bands that are new that I love, but none who are huge acts (with the exception of Foo Fighters, who don't really count because of the Nirvana connection).  So now in my 40s I basically am resigned to the fact that I'm never going to see a huge arena act in their prime or the next big rock band before they make it.  It's virtually impossible in this environment.  I have to get into fucking DJs or something.

What a lot of folks don't realize from the generation that is ten years or more younger than me was the ease of getting concert tickets. Even the biggest names were fairly easy to come up with tickets. Part of that reason was that they toured so often. Another is it was nothing to do a multi-night MSG stand. Yet another was you had the overflow going to the Nassau Coliseum. The Palladium was easy for me because I worked there. But even before I did I didn't miss out on any shows that I wanted to see. 

Another secret weapon for seeing shows that any city kid worth his salt had was sneaking into the Garden. Very easy to do and very easy to get around once you were inside. Going to a concert was literally as easy as going to the movies. There was a great show literally every single week.

Saw Sloan play a few nightclub shows in the Buffalo area during the One Chord To Another era.  Later, saw them at Maxwell's in Hoboken after Between The Bridges was released.  That was fun as the guys hung out at the bar and in the crowd prior to their set.

I'm mostly just going to list tours...

1. #1 and by far the one I wish I had saw was any Stones show from the 72/73 tour..the Stones with Mick Taylor at that time were the greatest rock band in history..then and now..
2. The Nirvana MTV unplugged show...
3. The 1988 Monsters of Rock tour Van Halen headlined. One, it's Van Halen with Sammy touring on the OU812 album and I love that album, it's the soundtrack of my senior year, so that would have been cool to see. Plus it had the Scorpions, Metallica, Dokken and Kingdom Come..
4. Kiss, 1977, the Alive II era...
5. Stevie Ray Vaughan 89-90ish, after he was clean and sober and playing the best of his life..

1. Led Zeppelin in California in 1972 or 1975. From listening to the shows and seeing some of the footage it had to be amazing. 
2. The Doors before Jim Morrison let himself go
3. Elvis Presley before he let himself go 
4. Jimi Hendrix
5. Bob Dylan in his prime. 

There is a entire Purple Rain show on YouTube right now. It's pretty awesome. I think this is the last day its on there.

I'm not one for stadium bands at all. The only gig I would have loved to have seen was the infamous 100 Club gig in 1976 with the Pistols and Siouxsie. There are so many myths about that one it would be a chance to sort the fact from the fiction.

Also would probably have given me a few hit singles. Given who was (allegedly) there. Very high proportion of those in attendance got record deals. Members (or would-be members) of The Jam, The Pogues, The Slits, The Pretenders, The Adverts, The Men They Couldn't Hang; there were 8 acts, four of which would have top 5 hits, and 2 others would have top 40s. The last two being Subway Sect, who were shite, and Stinky Toys, who were French.

Siouxsie always has a special place in my heart. One of the first shows I worked at the Palladium was Siouxsie Sioux and the Banshees on top. 999 in the middle and Athletico Spizz 80 opening. I tossed out my first drunk. He was dressed like Siouxsie too. A fun night, well maybe not for drunky but it was for me.

Heh, Spizz is from my home city. Used to change the band name every year, always with the word Spizz in it.
