What would your dream concert be?

This includes past ans present artists. Who would you love to see if you could. Personally mine is Stevie Ray Vaughan.

Stevie Ray Vaughan...I was going to say the exact same thing. I would give anything to see him again.

Other than that just about any rock artist from the late 60's and 70's(Jimi Hendrix, Janis Joplin, etc...)

Also I give anything to have been able to see some of the Jazz greats in their prime like Charlie Parker, Miles Davis, Dexter Gordon, John Coltrane, Charles Mingus, Monk, Basie, Ela Fitzgerald, Satchmo, Bud Powell, the list goes on and on.

I'd love to see Pink Floyd perform the Wall.

An SRV concert would be pretty fantastic too.

Yeah I'm a big SRV fan but he died before I could see him as I am only 21.

SRV, no doubt. I'm 22, and didn't discover him until after he died

Actually, I think I saw my dream concert. In the early 90's, I had tickets to see the Pogues in Boston. A day or two before the show, it was announced that lead singer Shane McGowan would be unable to perform (read:drunk to the point of hospitalization), but Joe Strummer of the Clash(I think he was producing their current album) would step in as lead singer! The Clash are just about my favorite all time band, and I had never seen them or Joe in concert. Joe did indeed perform all the songs with the Pogues, and they threw in awesome versions of "I Fought The Law" and "London Calling", played on their traditional Irish instruments---the place (The Orpheum) was packed, and the crowd was loving it-----definitely a once in a lifetime type show.

as I get older I have more and more respect for freddie mercury, so I think seeing a queen show would be up there, however when I was in school and they were huge I disliked them.

Ideal for me would be a small intimate show with U2, kind of one of those unplugged shows, or the vh1 storytellers thingy.

That did suck. I don't really like the Beasties, but I was so looking forward to finally getting to see Rage. Then the accident happened, the tour was cancelled, and Rage broke up. Now I'll never get to see them. I must admit that I'm intrigued to see what the new band formed by the remaining members of Rage and Chris Cornell will sound like. It will be interesting to see what they can do together. Morello, Wilk, and Tim Bob(or whatever the hell the bass player is going by now) are among the best at their instruments in modern rock, and Cornell is among my all time favorite vocalists.


Anyway, for my dream concert, I'm going to be greedy and go for an all-day festival.

Rage, STP, Alice in Chains, Soundgarden, Nirvana, and Pearl Jam.

Same here. Fry's in Austin has huge posters of SRV playing Austin Cuty Limits, etc... That would be my dream concert, seeing SRV in a small venue like La Zona Rosa (where he played alot) or Austin City Limits.

Rolling Stones, 3rd Eye Blind, Smashing Pumpkins, and Dave Matthews band. Had the Tickets in my hand, but had to dump them because my dad transferred to Europe 2 days before the concert.

I wish I could have seen Frank Zappa, but I didn't discover him until after he died

FWIW, I would like to see the return of the big metal shows from the 80's. Huge sets, lots of pyro, glitzy rock stars, rotating drum kits, and stacks of amps. Wee!
