1. The 1976 RTF tour when the quad was Chick, Stanley, Lenny and Al Di. (Regretfully, I had a chance and passed!)

2. Also, any FRANK tour with The Mothers tour--just for the experience.

3. Any early NEKTAR (Eye/Tab/Remember) tour. (I had a chance but they cancelled due to poor ticket sales).

4. Any Jeff Beck tour.

5. The first SHAKTI tours.

6. The GROBSCHNITT "Solar Music Live" tour.

7. Any Be-Bop Deluxe concert.
 
I could go on . . .

If I could only choose one show to go back in time and see... it would have to be Pink Floyd at the tour from Animals, where they played music from my favourite 3 albums from them. Second choice... I guess the PULSE tour. Besides Floyd, I'd really love to have seen Yes, King Crimson, Genesis, Renaissance in the 70's.

Didn't know you were such a Floyd fan. Excellent! Prog on!

I'm very tempted to pick a 5 piece early 70s Crimson gig or one of the very early Floyd and Softs gigs

Yeah, I guess I might still say that they are my favourite band. However, it's mainly the fact that they were my first "favourite band", so that's the one I keep on returning to. Of course, there are many bands I have known since I came into prog that I may like just about as much.

Yes in 1975, on the Relayer tour. their shows were packed with awesome music, even without Wakeman, they were in top form.

The Moody blues is the late ´60s, why not, Isle of Wight festival.

And a special show, from a non prog band.

The grateful dead on 1974 with the wall of sound on Winterland, that bass sound is to die for on that tour. But I got to choose, without any doubt, my choice will be... Winterland with the wall of sound. Sorry, I wanna be able to hear each string on different speakers across the wall, without any chemicals involved.

I missed the late 60's and the 70's so there are so many, perhaps I would go for The Isle of Wight Festival, Yes in the YesSongs tour or ELP Trilogy tour.

As from the 80's I can't complain, I have seen many many great concerts but I have a terrible memory so I tend to forget most of what I have seen and that's a big pitty. Sometimes if I scroll through the concert tickets I have I think to myself: 'did I see that? I don't remember seeing it!' Shocked  (yes I know, too stoned could have been a reason for a few of them, but that happens even for the ones I have seen in bright mental condition, I do really have a problem of bad memory in any case).

This leads me to the idea of starting a thread for posting scans of concert tickets we have and commenting on that show, I guess it has been done before but it can always be fun again.

Hi,
 
I would like to see the "Hollywood Bowl" concert again with Pink Floyd (1971 or 2 -- can't remember!), but that's not really that big a thing for me.
 
There are only two concerts I would love to see in my life before I leave. They are Vangelis and Peter Hammill.
 
All else, I don't care!
 
Mike Oldfield would be nice too, but I'm getting tired of his "fame" thing, and his music has gone seriously down hill!
 
The other one, would be Ryuichi Sakamoto with a rock band, doing the stuff from Neo Geo/Beauty and that era. I don't care as much for most of the stuff from YMO, unless they do the satirical bits that most people have never heard!
... none of the hits, none of the time ... you might actually find your own art, or self, and forego lousy heroes or Guru's!

hmmm.. maybe Magma - Trilogie au Trianon.

Pink Floyd's Live at Pompeii sounds tempting, but songs were recorded during the day, problable multiple times and some in different sections at a time. Doesn't sound that exciting..

I must say that Camel in Groningen (Netherlands) 2013 was a brilliant concert. Would love to see it again.

Or perhaps Grobschnitts Solar Music live?

Or Iron Maiden at Hammersmith Odeon Number of the Beat tour?

Or what about Supersister in its heydays, that should be fun.

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!!


If you really could choose to be any concert, why choose one that you have seen many times on film?  I'd much rather choose a different concert (even from the same period by the same band, but not the exact same concert)

My choice: one of the December 1970 concerts where Pink Floyd's set included "Alan's Psychedelic Breakfast", but not Sheffield on the 22nd, which is the only one there's a recording of.

1. Any Genesis show from '72-74 (Foxtrot, SEBTP, TLLDOB tours)
2. The Yessongs show in '73 (Close to the Edge tour)
3. Gentle Giant in '74 (Power and Glory tour)
4. Rush in '78 (Hemispheres tour)
5. Emerson, Lake, and Palmer in '72 (Trilogy tour)
