    Now the game is only what you have been to.

    I've been to some wild ones.

    Toss up for me. Let's start with this.

    Humble Pie opens for Black Sabbath now are you ready....:lol::lol::lol: Now we are good to go...

    then comes Three Dog Night. They were the headliners.

    Three Dog Night was the first concert I ever went to! Long Beach Arena, 1972. I was 8. I remember my Dad complaining about the cost of the tickets: $3.50! :lol:

    Best concert ever? Eagles, Hell Freezes Over Tour, Yokohama Marine Stadium.

    Oh too funny ever. I've seen some lineups that I could never believe. I was with Dennis from Alice Cooper (unabashed groupie) and this one will kill you.

    Alice Cooper opening for War(Eric Burdon for those that don't know) opening for Ike and Tina Turner.

    I was having a lot of fun there, but I think they could be in my top ten. My number one has to be King Crimson at Massey Hall only tied with Zappa with Jean Luc Ponty.

    I give. I don't know who I love the best.

    I hate to participate in these but i always do. It's hard to label the multitude of concerts I've been to in a best of order. Here are the top 5 in no particular order:

    J.Giels Band opened for Humble Pie, no one wanted Humble Pie after that. J.Geils ROCKED the place.

    The Peachtree Festival, Rockingham North Carolina, 1972. 10 bands including Alice Cooper, Three Dog Night, Black Sabbath, Black Oak Arkansas, and Rod Stewart and the Faces.

    One of the Rock Superbowls, at the Tangerine Bowl in Orlando, The Who, Alice Cooper, The Eagles, and two pretty good local bands.

    The Rolling Stones (First) Final Tour stop in Orlando

    Green Day at the Amway Center in Orlando.

    Pink Floyd Metrodome, Minneapolis, 1994 is second only to Pink Floyd's "The Wall Tour", Los Angles Memorial Sports Arena, 1980. I also them in 1985 at The Forum, Oakland Coliseum in 1994. The first time I saw them was in Anaheim in 1977.
    I think I like Pink Floyd. :D:clap2:
