I love lists, my own and other peoples.
I have been going to concerts since the late 60's, wow I am getting old, and in no particular order here are my top 5 concerts :
1 Led Zep at The Mountford Hall in Liverpool in 1971. This was a thank you tour they did of colleges and universities for supporting them over the years. This was the first concert of the tour and, as far as I can see, this is the first time they ever played songs from Zep 4 live before an audience, a , month before the album was released.
2 Yes supported by Argent and The Bonzo Dog Doo Dah Band at the Stadium in Liverpool. A superb concert. To be honest hadn't heard a lot of Yes before the concert but I have been a huge fan ever since.
The last encore was " Yours Is No Disgrace" which blew me away and it has been my fav Yes song ever since.
3 Genesis at The Liverpool Empire on the Lamb Lies Down On Broadway tour. This was simply amazing, the only downside was the album had only been released a few days before the gig so no-one knew the songs that well, but still a great gig from my fav band and Peter Gabriel's last tour with them
4 John Martyn at The Mountford Hall in Liverpool. Just him, a stool, and a table for his beer and spliff and a bunch of amazing songs. The only thing was everyone was sitting on the floor for the whole gig and sitting cross-legged on a wooden floor for 2 hours is not recommended
5 Rammstein at the NEC in Birmingham. Quite simply the best stage show I have ever seen, it was mind blowing, i took a friend who had never even heard and Rammstein music and she loved it.
OMG I have just realised I have not included Prince, Motorhead, Deep Purple, The Stones, Rod Stewart, Paul McCartney (when he was good ) etc. Such a tough choice, but i guess that is why I asked
