    Default Best (Non-Van Halen) Concerts You've Been To

    I'm seeing AC/DC in St. Louis tomorrow, so that got me thinking: what's the best show you've seen that wasn't Van Halen?
    I've only been to see one other artist as of today: Eric Clapton. That was my first concert ever, and it was absolutely fantastic. Lots of great blues, guitar solos, and fun. I consider myself especially lucky considering it ended up being his final tour.

    So what about everyone else?
    I'm just here.

    The Eagles at the Los Angeles Forum in January 2014. Ridiculously good.

    tesla played a big fair here 3 years ago, I had VIP tickets. they were great

    you know who was really good? I saw Jackyl open for Aerosmith in 94 and, no shit, they were great. I don't think they are a very good band but God Damn were they fun to watch

    Aerosmith was "ok" both times I saw them. They were too loud last time, I know there's something to being really loud and all but it was just too much

    whitesnake was really good when I saw them years back....Reb Beach is a great guitar player.

    now that I think of it outside of VH, Hagar and Dave (seen him 3 times solo) I haven't really seen that many bands in concert...

    I saw ABC perform this entire album with a full orchestra at the Hollywood Palladium on December 4, 1982. It was awesome ...

    I think I've enjoyed every show I've been to, saw some great bands. But I think my favourites will always be U2 - twice on the ZOO-TV tour (Hampton, Virginia and Washington, DC) and once on POP-Mart (Miami, Florida)

    I saw Def Leppard on back-to-back nights (for free) on the Pyromania tour. They were LOUD!!!

    I had the privilege of seeing the great Stevie Ray Vaughan open for Bonnie Raitt at the Greek Theatre back in the summer of 1986.

    Saw fleetwood Mac last year at Phillips arena and they were phenomenal. Christine mcveigh makes a big difference in their playing and style. If you get the chance I recommend them.

    Also saw def leppard in 1988. Now that was a killer show. Gods of war and die hard the hunter made that show. Rip Steve.
