My wife and I went to see Sting this weekend. Awesome concert!!!
He had a good mix of his new material as well as some Police songs. It was great when the whole crowd joined in for "Message in a Bottle" and "Fragile" at the end of the show.
Jill Scott who was supposed to open the show was sick. Stings guitarist was gracious enough to come out and play a 20 minute set to start the show.
Try to catch Sting when he comes to a city near you!!

i had a ticket last year, but the show was in the middle of final exams... i had to give them up! having "will power" isn't fun.
however, i sat FRONT ROW for the Grateful Dead just 3 weeks before i joined the Navy in '94. that was the 3rd time i went to their show, and i think it was the best.

One of my favorite concerts is always Jimmy Buffett. His shows are a weekend long experience of nothing but a drunken haze filled with booze, girls, booze, music, booze, tailgating, booze, oh and booze.
Theres all ages represented. Theres guys and girls that are 18 all the way up to 50 yr olds all partying together.

I'd have to go with Pink Floyd, but a tough runner-up would be The Monkees when I was in the fourth grade.

My favorite concert has to be Kiss on the first reunion tour. They have been a favorite of mine since I was a young child and that was the first time I had the chance to see the original band.
My other favorite concert was Rush on the Presto tour. Both concerts were jaw-dropping experiences for me.

You've gotto check out The Brandenburg Ensemble... I had been to their rendition of Vivaldi's The Four Seasons for Violin and Orchestra, performed at the Chicago Symphony Center, last year.
These guys simply rock. The whole concert was so perfect and engaging; no one ever felt the time passing by... totally enthralling! At the end of the concert, the whole crowd, almost all dressed in formal wear, stood up and cheered and a few (including myself) whistled loudly, and kept demanding encores. They gave us three quick encores, 'cause we wouldn't let them go. It was absolute nirvana, that day!
 
We find this kind of rampant individuality very disturbing. But not this tiny ad:
