If you could travel back in time and witness the first night of any band's latest tour, which gig would it be?

My choice would be, unsurprisingly, the first date of the Lamb Lies Down On Broadway tour, I'm certain it would blow my mind!

Agree.
 
Another would be the "Fragile" tour by Yes. The last tour they did with Bruford on drums. There just isn't any video/audio of that available which is a crime against humanity!!!Wink

It's a crime that there isn't a full show of Emerson, Lake & Palmer's Brain Salad Surgery Tour 1974 availableCry

I'd really love to see Genesis most of all during their 1976 tour with Bill Bruford on drums. I've seen some film of that period on the internet and it's just mindblowing stuff. And I love 'Seconds Out'.
Also 'The Lamb...' and 'Selling England..' tours.

The first date of the Larks tongue in Aspic tour of King Crimson...thouse who have seen it say there was nothing like it...must have been mindblowing!!!
Also Led Zeppelin in 1971...after having produced that masterpiece that IV is...wow!!!

To see the Enid perform Albion Fair and Song of Fand (among others) live at the Hammersmith...oh, how I wish I was alive then...

Rush on the Hemispheres tour.  I don't think anyone has ever played a better setlist than that.

Not strictly true actually, as a commonly available bootleg of the BBC program Sounding Out from 1971 features just such footage....filmed in that thriving metropolis Hemel Hempstead if my memory serves me correctly.

In answer to the question.

King Crimson - during their 1969 residency at the Marquee, perhaps rubbing shoulders with Bruford or Hackett in the audience, or anytime on the first Bruford Wetton tour of the UK late 1972.

Zappa - Roxy shows, 'nuff said.

Yes - so many to choose from I suppose but trying to limit myself - a full TFTO show, solo's tour 76 maybe Roosevelt Stadium. Any of the Relayer shows with Gryphon in support - then I would have really died and gone to heaven.

Gentle Giant - anything from the Octopus era before 3 Shulmans became 2.

Herbie Hancocks Headhunters - any smokin' night would do.

Caravan - really early - anything up to 71 I suppose.

Egg/National Health/Hatfields - can't get enough of the Dave Stewart magic....

Pretty much any band you can think of. I missed it all due to being born in 1985!

I'd love to go back and see the first A Passion Play concert. It must have been musically stunning and I'd like to see how they pulled off the Hare Story.
