    If you cant limit yourself to one, than give 2. But not an entire list please.

    Mine is a tie.

    Les Claypool playing a nonstop, uninterupted 90 minute set of Sailing the Seas of Cheese.



    and



    Incubus. I have never seen a stage show like the one they put on. It was like I paid for two shows!

    They record every set and play every song from all of their albums.
    Also where else could I get Little Jimmy Urine to sign my jacket that says Touch Me Daddy.

    2nd greatest:
    Eighties Matchbox Bline Disaster. Awesome band from england. Blew me away.

    Your name is very fitting for my answer: best band I've seen live was Zwan.

    Zwan was way up there for me as well. Let me ash you, did it take like 90 minutes for Billy to finally come out after the opener? When I saw them it was the longest I had ever waited.

    :bowdown: 80's Bline f*****g rock! They'd be in my top two as well. When I saw them the lead guy was either shouting and screaming, crying down the mic, diving through the crowd or flying into the other band members! Crazy stuff!

    Second for me would be another british band called Muse :bigthumb:

    saw Tool twice, both for Lateralus. It was utterly amazing...very, very atmospheric.

    Those were the only two shows I've ever been to where I really felt like I was given something. Which is why I now prefer live Tool bootlegs rather than studio recordings most of the time.

    Best stage show - Rob Zombie(I'm seeing Incubus in July though...)
    I've seen so many bands it's hard to put one at the top. Some concerts are fun, some rough, hardcore, etc.

    311 day, march 11, 2004 new orleans.


    5 hours, all 311.

    best show ever.
     
  25. Definitly both times I've seen Tool. The guy a couple posts above said it perfectly. Its just an incredible atmosphere. Also flying out to Seattle (i'm from NJ) just to see Pearl Jam play made that pretty memorable.

    Honorable mention: just about every ska/punk show I saw back in the day like 9 years ago when the scene was still awesome in New Jersey and before bands started thinking they were rockstars :):cough::midtown::cough::)

    ok that was a low blow. Gabe is the only one who thinks he's a rockstar, heath, tyler, and rob are all cool in my book.
