Buzz In: What Has Been Your Favorite Concert?

Tori Amos made a cameo in Oakland last night for the third stop on her Sinful Attraction tour, and I was one of the many in attendance. It wasn't the first time I had seen her, but it had been a while. Let me tell you, Tori is still in fine form. Wonderfully weird in her redhair flips and piano-stool straddles, she wowed the crowd with her improvisations and Britney Spears covers. There's simply no denying this woman is talented.

Both last night's concert and the one I'd attended before rank high on my list of favorite concerts ever. I've also had amazing experiences with Garbage, Fiona Apple, Andrew Bird, the Yeah Yeah Yeahs, and Radiohead, to name a few.

Have you seen Tori before? Does she make your cut? What has been you favorite concert experience, and what made it so memorable?

I have to say, as a teen, *NSYNC was the most fun, because they put on such a good show and could dance, and I always was able to score close seats. But most recently, and this is going a full 180 here, Metallica last December! I was in the very front row and could almost touch my favorite singer, James. I felt like a '60's Beatles fan and got teared up.

I really enjoyed Britney's "Dream within a Dream" tour, as well as the Circus tour that she is doing right now. Her shows are always so theatric and epic. I also had a good time when I saw N'SYNC on their No Strings Attached tour when I went back in middle school. The Yeah Yeah Yeahs also put on an amazing show...

No Doubt, Rock Steady tour in Long Beach, CA. Garbage opened for them and nothing beats the ND energy. It was the same concert that supplied footage for the tour DVD. If I slow it down and zoom in, there I am!

My fiance and I saw Maxwell in concert a few weeks ago and he was amazing. Not only is he a wonderfully talented singer, he puts on a great show. It was definitely one of the best concerts I've attended.

Pavement! I've seen them many times, but probably my favorite was at Loeb Student Center in 1997 ish. It was 1997 or 1998. After that it would have to be Doug Martsch showing up in a surprise visit at a Dub Narcotic Sound System show and playing Virginia Reel Around the Fountain. Those are two very special moments.

Coldplay last night!! It was at an outdoor amphitheatre and I was in a general seating area ("Lawn") that holds 15,500 people, and yet when they came up to do a set in the crowd, it was literally RIGHT NEXT TO ME. Not exaggerating--5 feet away :-) So because of that little stroke of fortune, there's no way another concert could compare, hehe. Singing Billie Jean as a tribute: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=d7-lUNiUkBA (the picture looks farther than it was :-/)

I saw Kings of Leon 2 months ago. They were so, so great. I was supposed to (finally) see Aerosmith yesterday, but the show was cancelled.

I saw TIM CHRISTENSEN (former front figure in Dizzy Mizz Lizzy) at the Roskilde Festival. He got the whole tent jumpin' and he even sang some of the great Dizzy Mizz Lizzy hits. You should check out the music if you like rock mixed with emotion.

Coldplay. I sat out on the lawn and it rained throughout the entire concert. my clothes and the the sheets on the ground were entirely soaked through. but somehow it made the concert more fun. and coldplay gave everyone a free cd
