went and saw the Revivalists a couple weeks ago in Charlotte...great show....they did an extended encore, and did 3-4 covers that i wasn't expecting...one of which was a tom petty tribute, which was great. but their cover of midnight rider....well..it was awesome.

I would've given anything to have been able to catch one of his shows back when Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers was his tour band! Tom Petty said in an interview years later that touring with Dylan absolutely made them a better band. He said every night Dylan was completely spontaneous and they never knew what he was going to play. Tom said it forced them to really be on their game each and every night. I respect the hell out of that.

Oh another I must add is Frank Zappa and the Mothers of Invention! Perhaps the finest display of musicianship I've ever witnessed on stage.

Phish in Knoxville in the 90's was a fun time.

We have a lot of the same taste in music.

I saw Ozzy, Alice in Chains, and Sepultura together. Great show. I was a fan of Ozzy but Alice in Chains was what I went to see.

I saw Bon Jovi open for Ratt.

ACDC was a fun show.

18th birthday present was Bad Company, Lynard Skynard, and driving and crying in Bristol. Not original members but still good stuff.

Went to a Hootie concert in Knoxville and They might be Giants opened and that was a cool group.

Kenny in Neyland was a unique experience.

Garth in 96' Knoxville was good.

Off of your list I wish I would have seen Ben Folds, DMB, Tool, and Metallica.

Civic Colosseum, right? I was there. Was that the show where Staley was in a cast, and didn't the old Sabbath members come out and join Ozzy at the end for a couple songs?

I was a scrawny 135 pounds at the time (1993?) and thought I was going to die when the lights dropped and Sepultura hit the stage. We were maybe twenty feet from the stage and everyone started going berserk. My buds still laugh about that moment.

Tool was my 40th birthday present from my wife.

I've seen Dave so many times that it's hard to rank my favorite, aside from that super early show in Nashville. Maybe World's Fair Park c. 1995.

Ben Folds is incredibly talented and engages constantly with the crowd. The second half of the last show I saw consisted of us all throwing paper airplanes on the stage with requests and him playing them off the cuff. So fun.
