Moody Blues, Outlaws and Doobie Bros. ZZ Top, Alan Jackson, Merle Haggard............just to name a few. Going to see Springsteen next month......cant wait!

Journey Escape tour 1984 was the best concert I ever saw. Steve Perry totally rocked the house, never stood still the whole time. Second was Foreigner Four.

Guns and Roses and Garth Brooks were two of my favorites to see in person. Some bands/musicians just have a knack for performing live and Axl Rose was definitely one of them. Garth Brooks puts on a great show.......

When I was a kid I saw a few Great concerts at the Jahrhunderthalle in Frankfort Germany My first was in January 69 it was with Jimi Hendrix followed
by Jethro Tull and the Fabulous Frank Zappa. Why my folks allowed me to travel to Frankfort is beyond me. It was only about 35 minutes from Weisbaden. I was still young and very naive. The best stage show was by a performer that I am not that fond of Elton john ( about 1975 in Hampton VA) he had a very good show altho the songs were not of my style.

Bigboy,

In 70 & 71 I used to drive the Army bus from Giessen to Frankfort hauling a bunch of dope heads to rock concerts. Procol Harum, Alice Cooper, Ten Years After, Neil Diamond, just to name a few. If it's the same place, it was first come first served and you put blankets on the floor to sit on. My favorite group, the Moody Blues, weren't there at that time but I've seen them multiple times here at home.

It's a wonder we ever made it down and back in one piece!
