What's your dream concert? Opening act, main act, guest appearance, venue . . . and you're dreaming so no old faves are off the list - the band can be broken up, whoever is dead can come back to life - sky's the limit!

Stevie Ray Vaughan and Jimi Hendrix. If my living room doesn't count as a venue, I'll chose the Capital Center for the Arts...a nice little venue refurbished recently and down the road from me.

Can Jonny Lang and Kenny Wayne Shepherd share opening billing status?

Ummm, lets go with the CCftA venue...otherwise those guys will tell me my acoustics suck in my living room!

Good thread, Amie!

Mark,

You just typed in my reply. Seriously I was going to say the same exact thing.I was lucky enough to have seen Jonny Lang and Kenny Wayne Shepherd.

Not in your room though, I heard the acoustics suck

I've seen Jonny twice, KWS once, and SRV 5x... too young to see Hendrix because no one would have taken an eight year old!

There was a thread awhile ago where members were listing who they've seen in concert. I'm glad I saw SRV when I did, and I've only been to maybe 12 concerts total in comparison to others here who have seen 30 or 50 bands.

I never did get the chance to see SRV, I wish I had went to his last concert at Alpine Valley Ws.I did run across a cd of that very same performane of SRV called " Peace in the Valley ".It's quite chilling knowing this was his last performance.

I should have known somebody would have beat me to Stevie Ray and Jimi Hendrix *but* I'm going to slide in Mr. Buddy Guy as well ... No opening act, no guest appearances, just these three gentlemen doing what they do best!

Stevie Ray Vaughan, Jimi Hendrix and Buddy Guy.

That, my friends would be a heck of an awesome show.

Okay dkfan,

You've got one great show lined up there!

Count me in, I'll take 2 tickets please.

But if Parsons couldn't make it I'd settle for an opening by Dire Straits.

You mean, put me up or put up with me? If I get up your way we'll definitely have to also check out Buddy Guy's Legends club in Chicago...but unfortunately come February we'll be back on our 7 day a week work schedule so therefore I won't be able to make it. Thanks for the offer though, that's a really nice gesture!

Good imagination, Amie! I'll have Leopold Stokowski conducting the Philadelphia Orchestra players of about 1940 with Rachmaninoff himself as the soloist. The program opens with the Rachmaninoff Symphonic Dances and his 1st Symphony follows. After intermission Rachmaninoff is at the piano for his 3rd Piano Concerto. Then of course, the audience will demand that Rachmaninoff play his Prelude in C-Sharp Minor as an encore.

After much thought, here's mine. It's an all-Canadian special:

Venue: My dock (hey, all the concerts there so far have been a blast)
Opening act: Great Big Sea (Of course we have reinforced the cribs before this band gets us stomping!)
Main act: Barenaked Ladies. They're at their prime in my dream concert, playing mostly early 90s stuff
Special Guests: Crash Test Dummies join in on Brian Wilson.
After all the guests have gone, David Foster appears with just piano, and we sit in Muskoka chairs contemplating the stars while he plays the night away.

Sighhhh. It was the best concert dream I've ever had.

Time warp concert: The Who performing Tommy at the Met in NYC to 15-minute standing ovations. One of the legendary concerts of all time.

If only they hadn't had that last drink/hit concert: Jimi and Led Zeppelin at the Rainbow room in London 1970.

Time Warp 2: Pink Floyd The Wall Live in LA.

If only the people around him could have understood back then: The Beach Boys perform "Smile" for the first time at the Monterey Pop Festival, 1967.

As far as contemporary bands and "dinosaurs" I guess I've seen who I want to see.

This is an easy one. Early morning kayaking on Bowman Lake with loons calling in the distance and paddles quietly dipping into the misty waters.
I hear this every morning for two months while working in Glacier Park. No concert or stereo system can ever match this.

Glacier National - I haven't been there in 10 years. How tough is it to get a backcountry permit these days? This park is the most beautiful area of the United States in my opinion. So as not to completely hijack the thread: My dream concert would be Charlie Parker and Miles Davis performing in a New York Club (or as an alternative, Louis Armstrong in a jazz joint in New Orleans).

Keith Moon

Of course, I'm sure some of you will say that I'm crazy, none of them play the same sort of stuff, etc, etc. But hey...

I'm going with SRV, Doors, Beatles, and Hendrix as well. I have been a very fortunate individual and seen a ton of awesome concerts in my day. Wiltern theater Los Angeles best place I've ever seen for a concert. Opening act Doors, Main Hendrix guest appearance SRV.

Never did get to see those four however.

Concerts I've seen

BB King with Ray Charles
Led Zep
Stones x 3
Kinks x 7
Eagles
Elton John
CSN
Proco Harum x 3 (very under rated)
The Band x3 (Once with Bob Dylan)
Little River Band
Bonnie Rait
Almond Brothers (Brothers & Sisters tour)
Billy Preston
Leon Russel
Jose Flisiono (sp)
Humble Pie
Steve Miller x2
Deep Purple x2
Beach Boys
Bruce Springstein
Fletwood Mac
Steven Curtis Chapman x2
Chuck Berry
Who x3
Brain Setzer
Country Joe and the Fish (give me an "F" !!!)
Joan Bias
Canned Heat
George Benson
Bruce Hornsbe
Rod Steward
Billy Joel
Stevie Wonder
Toto
Kenny Logins
James Taylor
Hewey Lewis and the News x2
Blues Brothers (Steve Martin King Tut tour)
Dan Fogerburg
Tim Weisburg
Grateful Dead

Best Concert: Stones Ronnie Woods first tour with them

Worst Concert: Fletwood Mac (they actually played before Deep Purple) they both sucked that night.

(turned down chance to see Beatles at Dodger stadium when I was about 10 or 11.)

Most fun concerts: almost all the Kink's concerts
Best guitar: I've heard in person: Almond Brothers lead Dicky bates cleanest/fastest guitar I've ever heard (tuff call vs Led zep lead)
Best drummer: Lez Zep (guy who died forget his name John Bontom?)
Best bass: Billy Wyman Stones
Best rhythm: Keith Richards (nobody else even close)
Best Piano: Bruce Horsby
Best Vocal performance (Deep purple, I couldn't believe he could sing Space Truckin at the same octives as the studio version)
Best entertainer: Ray Davies of the Kinks
Most energy: Bruce Springstein

Groups I would never again pay to see: Fleetwood Mac (no talent), Steve Millier (way too short a concert felt cheated second time I saw them) and Deep Purple (short concert too messed up on drugs).

Amie,

I have a fairly rare 2 CD live set of the Kinks. It is no longer available to buy. It is not a bootleg either, top quality. It includes "Everybody come dancin" as well as a ton of excellent old Kinks stuff done live.

If you want I could burn and send you off a little present.

Glad to find another Kinks fan! I saw them twice, and then I was able to catch Ray Davies on the Storyteller tour.

And you're absolutely right -- their shows were easily among the most fun I've had. Both were outdoor shows, and both were on horrendously rainy nights. In fact, the show in Santa Fe was cancelled and rescheduled in Albuquerque a couple of weeks later because it was so bad. No such luck in Atlanta, though. But I can't tell you what a kick it was to be sitting in Chastain Park, soaked to the bone with a stupid smile on my face and singing along with Ray and Dave while they delivered a full rendition of "Singing in the Rain". And I'm also not sure how I would have made it through high school without my copies of Muswell Hillbillies or Lola vs. Powerman & the Moneygoround.

Wow! The Kinks, that sure brings back memories of cruising around back in High School, drinking a few cold barley pops, and cranking my Alpine stereo. I sure miss those days...

Great Party music...

i can think of a number i'd like to see:

PAST
Beatles - would have been fun to see early in the career with all those screaming nutbar fans, but i prefer actually hearing the music
Doors - of course just to see Jim in all his drug haze glory
The Sex Pistols - early club days when punk was just breaking, never was or is a such a groundbreaking definitive few months in music. Changed everything forever.
The Clash - see above
Nirvana - it would have to be early Seattle days, just before or after Nevermind....to get a feeling of that band that was just about to blow the music world away


PRESENT
Bright Eyes - i get the feeling that i may never have a chance to see him in Saskatoon. An all acoustic set would be amazing
Pearl Jam - can't see these guys too many times, they seem to be getting better with age, though would have been fun to see them just as they were breaking with Ten
Others - Fiery Furnaces, Arcade Fire (sold out before i could get tickets ), Apples in Stereo, Supergrass, White Stripes, Radiohead, Spoon, New Pornographers, etc, etc. I'd better stop, could think of a million.

I was fortunate enough to see Radiohead while they stopped here in August of 2003. The show was simply phenomenal. I would certainly see them again if they come back.

I say if because Salt Lake City is not a major stop for a lot of bands. The previous time Radiohead was here was in 1993.

Anyway, if you are even remotely a fan go and see them if you get the chance.

I saw Bright Eyes in October at the Bridge School Benefit Concert outside San Francisco. Emmylou Harris did a few songs with him. Very excellent! I'd definitely see him/them again.

Peter/David, both of you are quite lucky, chances are slim of seeing either of those performers in N Sask any time soon. I have been able to enjoy live performances of both on DVD/TV so that was nice - though certainly less enjoyable than the real thing.

Is it just me or does anyone else think Connor Oberst is the greatest songwriter today???

He's pretty damn close, if not the best. But then again, I don't find his political views offensive.

I would choose the following Stevie ray vaughn, deep purple,jimi hendrix, and ccr. Obviously many many more but these would be at the top of my list. No particular order just all of them playing in the same venue would be amazing

Well, I don't know if it is my "dream" concert, but I would have loved to have seen Roy Orbison.

Speaking of fun - how about AC/DC does the Hokey Pokey (Actually, it's Jim Breuer)

I just came back from my dream concert. I saw U2 live at St. Louis. All I can say is, I can die a happy man.

If I had a time machine I would like to go back and see Freddy Mercury and Queen performing at Live Aid. I watched it on tv. There was a lot of energy there.
I was lucky enough to see the Ramones in 1988 at The Musical Moon in Tallahassee, Florida. But regret that I never saw the Clash.

How about Floyd touring DSOTM/King Crimson touring 21st schizoid and Zeppelin and throw in Merciful Fate for some heaviness for a 12 hour show.

My dream concert would be staged in my home, with just me and the artists. The artists would include Shania Twain, Mindy McCready, Deana Carter and Michelle Branch. The props would be a big jug of babby oil and latex. ……………I better stop with this dream.

In reply to:

Nirvana - it would have to be early Seattle days, just before or after Nevermind....to get a feeling of that band that was just about to blow the music world away




Saw them many times, and played in a show with them before and saw them twice after they became the poster-boys for "grunge." The best ever was a New Years Eve show at the Satyricon here in PDX which was a CBGB-type venue. This was after they were signed by Geffen but just before they blew up. Played with them at the Off-Ramp in Seattle about 8 months before that. They were in a truly different plane as far as electricity in their performance back then. The last time I saw them in PDX KC was just a shell standing at the mike. F!cking tragic.

hey that's awesome Mark! What sort of a band did you play with at the time? I can't even imagine how exciting a time that must have been.

The band I was in at the time was kind of a goofy nerd-rock thing. We had songs with titles like "Cajun Chipmunk Head Mush." There was an unbelievable explosion in the NW starting around 88/89 or so, but it had been simmering for a few years before that. People only remember the "grunge" kings like Nirvana or Pearl Jam (Mookie Blaylock is how they are remembered here) but you could go to a show any night of the week and see 3,4,5 bands that had completely different styles. Everybody knew and supported each other. I also mixed FOH at a couple of places in town which was a great way to see acts from all over the place. I got stuck doing Wednesday "New Band Night" at Belmont's Inn for a few months. One of the bands that played almost every Wednesday was Everclear. They went on to slightly bigger things. Being in the community plus being a "sound guy" had the advantage of almost NEVER having to pay for shows. I saw all of the NW acts plus Belly, Alanis Morissette (in a medium-sized club maybe 2 or 3 weeks after her album was released), Fishbone a few times, Green Day (in the smaller upstairs "living room" section of LaLuna just before their album was released), Lenny Kravitz, Weezer, and just a whole bunch more for free. It was a great time. Funny thing is the band that had the most buzz locally never really made it. That was Mudhoney. One note: The term "Grunge" was ALWAYS said with a derisive sneer in the NW. The term "Alternative" reached that status eventually as well. By the time Nordstom's started stocking Doc Martens and pre-ripped jeans the whole thing had already become a joke.

interesting story Mark, thanks for sharing. I guess you are right that Mudhoney didn't really "make it big" to the level that a PJ or Nirvana did, but were still as highly critically acclaimed as either of them. Tough to not think of Grunge/Alternative without considering Mudhoney as pioneers. Touch Me I'm Sick is, without a doubt, one of the greatest songs of all time.

Yes it is! THAT song really represented the scene more than any other, which is why Mudhoney is revered above most around here.
