Best concert you didn't see

#1 Post by litlgrnman » Sat May 06, 2006 11:31 pm

We all have at least one...You know, the concert that came through close to where you live that you kick yourself for not going to see. Here's the ones that keep me up at nights thinking about what I missed...

'91 - Peony Park Ballroom, Omaha, Ne: Pearl Jam (Ten tour) opening for Smashing Pumpkins (Gish tour) opening for Red Hot Chili Peppers (Blood, Sugar...tour) I just wanna cry!

'91 Aksarben Colosieum, Omaha, Ne: Janes Addiction (Ritual de lo Habitual tour)

'05 Ranch Bowl, Omaha, Ne: Strapping Young Lad

'02 Civic Auditorium, Omaha, Ne: Tool

Which ones eat away at you?

94: Pink Floyd. I deserve a severe beating for missing out on that one.

Dream Theater and Joe Satriani both came over to town at the Montreal's Metropolis this year, and I missed them.

Steve Vai and later followed by Joe Satriani. Both concerts were missed because I wasn't over 18. Stupid venues

Definitely Dream Theater on 1st of April. And maybe the gig when John Myung tackled James Labrie.

The story goes someone (Mike Portnoy I think) bet him he wouldn't. But he did.

Bit to the future... but The upcoming Zappa plays Zappa tour.

Still kicking myself that I'm too poor...
