    I went to the Tim McGraw concert in Brisbane last night and have to say it was one of the most entertaining performances I've seen. I knew the bloke could sing but didn't know how well until he sang his version of Elton John's 'Tiny Dancer'... IMPRESSIVE!

    What has been your favourite concert and which band/artist do you regret having missed live?

    I think the first concert I went to was my favorite.
    Led Zeppelin in Oakland,CA

    I would like to see Alan Jackson but I don't think that's going to happen.

    Saw the Doobie Bros in the early 70's - amazing show. Also saw Earth, Wind & Fire during the 70's and their show was great as well. Haven't been to a concert since the 70's now that I think about it. My wife saw Elton John in NYC a few years ago and she reported it was absolutely great...

    I've been to a lot of good ones but one that stands out is George Clinton and the P Funk All Stars. They are wonderful musicians and they played for 4 1/2 hours straight! I got my money's worth that night.
    Jonny Lang was awesome too.

    I don't think it was the same Crowbar. These guys were blues/rock and did stuff like "The House of Blue Lights".

    John Lee Hooker in a small honkytonk in a not so good part of Dallas in 1984. The place was packed with about 200 guests....intense.

    I was really lucky to see the April Fool's Day show of the Grateful Dead in Memphis, TN a few months before Garcia OD'd.

    I also really enjoyed seeing John Prine and a female guest at the Orpheum in Memphis in the late 1990's; i had no idea who he was and bought a ticket at the door to accompany some out-of-town hippie friends.

    Of course, seeing Saliva back in 1995 or 1996, when they were still a Memphis band was great too, small venue as the opening act for a mostly acoustic set by a famous semi-retired guitarist of the metal era.

    I saw Zeppelin, Skynyrd, Pink Floyd, Deep Purple, Stones, Alice Cooper, Bad Company and many others I cannot remember.
    But even though I was never a country fan, the best by far was The Outlaws (Waylon, Willie, Jesse Colter, and Tompall Glaser) Saw them two years in a row at Red Rocks Amphitheater in Colorado in the mid seventies. Wow what great shows with front row seats both times:D
