I'm currently at the Mötley Crüe and Alice Cooper show. What are some of the best shows you've seen?

I saw Whitesnake open for Motley Crue in the Girls Girls Girls tour in 87 @ Tulsa.  But I can't talk about it.

I've been to a ton that I'll list later.

Most recently I saw Rush in Tulsa.  It was the first date of their tour and got my bucket list down to just Pink Floyd.

U2's PopMart tour at the Liberty Bowl in Memphis.  Rage Against the Machine opened for them, and it was shortly after Evil Empire was released.

The Five Browns in 2006. Google them. They are spectacular.

John Legend in 09. This one was in a concert hall, so it was acoustically set up properly. It was spectacular.

Had the Rumours 8track and lusted for Stevie Nicks all thru college, but like previously mentioned, the Clintons ruined them for me.  Didn't even go see them either time they've been to LR lately.

First and one of the best concerts was seeing the Eagles in 1976 in Shreveport, just before they released Hotel California and then seeing them in Memphis in 1994 in the heck Feezes Over tour.

Never have bought any Rolling Stone albums but the Voodoo Lounge concert in LR in 1994 was one of the best shows I've seen.

Billy Joel and Elton John at WMS was great as well.

Seen Pillar, Red, Skillet, Decyfer Down, Disciple, Thousand Foot Krutch, Stellar Kart, David Crowder, The Wedding, and The Letter Black. All were good. Disciple and Skillet put on the better shows of these listed.

The last few years, I have seen Bret Michaels here in Fort Smith, Boston in Fayetteville, and last January I went to Durant OK and saw KISS who I consider the greatest rock band of all time. Hands down the best concert I"ve seen. I only wish I was born earlier to see them with Bruce and Eric Carr. If anyone who followed or knows KISS's lineup history, I believe the lineup with Paul, Gene, Bruce, and Eric Carr was the best lineup.

Next month I will see Disciple again, my second favorite band. In May I am going to Fayetteville to see the Doobie Bros and Journey. In July I am going back up there to see Sammy Hagar. In June in Tulsa I'm going to see Stryper. And in November either in Tulsa or OK City I believe, Billy Joel will be in town.

I had the chance to go with a friend to see Gordon Lightfoot a year or so ago but couldn't with work. He said he was constantly having people ask how old he was and if he actually knew who Gordon Lightfoot was lol.

Been to a couple of edgefest's in LR that were awesome. Went to a concert with Godsmack, Korn, Etc at the mud island amphitheater in Memphis that was awesome too. Too many different artists to name. Mostly metal and hard rock. A couple of my favorite performers live are Shinedown, Breaking Benjamin, Atreyu, Avenged Sevenfold.

I'm at the Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers show at Verizon. Joe Walsh opened the show, and it was pretty good. Didn't blow me away, but it was fun. Now we're waiting on the road crew to set up for the Heartbreakers

Been listening to their stuff since about 1998. Dave Grohl is just one of those amazing musical talents that dates back to his Nirvana days. I missed them when they came to Little Rock a few years ago. I am seriously contemplating their show in Tulsa or Memphis for this tour.

I watched one of their live concerts from Wembly stadium in England on TV. Their show looks absolutely amazing and they rocked that place.

Been my favorite band since I was 12, so about 9 years. I can't plan on seeing them on the next leg of their tour. They'll be in Europe till next May, so I'll probably try to catch them the next time the hit NRG in Houston

Amazing band to watch live.  Also they have some pretty great music videos.  I think Grohl is a guy who obviously doesn't take himself too seriously.
