...what would it be and why?

First one that comes to mind (that I know of) is Genesis at the Shepperton Studios in '73. Love it, and watched it on YouTube so many times that I haven't really been bothered to find many more of their shows Smile


As far as all music goes, I'd choose Led Zeppelin at The Royal Albert Hall without a doubt - must have seen that at least 20 times by now... Anyway, thanks for any feedback!!

Haha, Pink Floyd in Pompeii!
I'd love to see Tool sometime from 96 to 98, they just don't have the presence they used to have on the stage.

Pink Floyd in the early days, definitely.  Maybe around '69 or '70, ideally.

Funny you should mention that one. I just had a friend send me copies of the 3 Live videos from the Genesis box set and that was one of the concerts included. A great show but the video quality is a little rough even though it's billed as 'Remastered'.
Lots of dirt and damage on the print
I'd actually liked to have seen ELP during the BSS tour. I saw the Works tour with the orchestra, but the Welcome Back My Friends tour must have surely rocked. I have no idea what venue would have been best but which ever had the best acoustic...then that one.
Thank you for supporting independently produced music

I'd just follow Yes, Genesis, and Gentle Giant around from pretty much 1970 through 1975 LOL.

That one definitely springs to mind but I think Rush in 81. I'd love to see the boys in their prime (not to say their shows aren't great now).

I would extend the year 1975 to 1977 and follow them around. Big smile

I saw Rush in 83, it was good but wouldn't make my top 10 gigs.
