    Well, my best concert so far was My Bloody Valentine in Manchester at the Apollo Theatre in June 2008, I've been to many concerts, including to some of the bands you mentioned (Slayer - I've even met Kerry King and got his autograph, Tool, etc.), but nothing comes close to My Bloody Valentine.
    If I'm an ass, I should say so. If I don't, somebody else will. If I say it first, that disarms them.

      My favourites are probably these:

      - First time Mono at Rock Herk.
      - Hermano in Brussels
      - Queens Of The Stone Age at Werchter.
      - Them Crooked Vultures in Cologne

      These shows seriously blew me away.

          I've seen them in Berlin at Columbiahalle, I've met Joey and Dean after the concert, talked to them for a while, and got their autographs as well. I've got a video bootleg (and you can see me there numerous times), I've got an audio bootleg as well.

            In Scotland we're really lucky to have this incredible folk/acoustic festival in Glasgow every January called Celtic Connections. As a result, Scotland's become a real magnet for traditional music.

            Anyway, these are people I'd recommend seeing live:
            Pokey LaFarge
            Abigail Washburn / The Sparrow Quartet
            Eliza Carthy
            Moishe's Bagel
            Kathryn Tickell

            I doubt it comes across on the videos, but all of these performers left me stunned, especially Abigail Washburn... I guess you had to be there.

            Other memorable concerts I've been to in the last few years include:

            -Leonard Cohen at Edinburgh Castle.
            -Bob Dylan at Glasgow Barrowlands and the SECC
            -The Pretenders at the ABC last year (same night as Springsteen was playing).
            -Ray Davis (I can't remember where it was)

              Muse, the Smashing Pumpkins, and Flight of the Conchords!

              Breaking Benjamin and Chevelle were really good live as well. I havent been listening to much of either recently, though. My musical taste is ever changing.

                  The best live band I have seen is Bowling for Soup. They really know how to put up a good show while playing.

                  Other good bands I have seen live are Iron Maiden, AC/DC, Deep Purpe (I had a backstage pass jay!), Turbonegro, Dream Theatre, Linkin Park, Marylin Manson and Dimmu borgir (the music is horrible but the show was pretty good.)

                    Ummmh, Deep Purple was very good. But I gotta say my number 1. is Freedom Call, The amount of positive energy is incredible!

                      Yeah, I've got a couple of berlin bootlegs. They were nice shows but the Werchter 07 show is by far one of the best Queens shows ever.

                      I spoke to all the guys in antwerp. Josh is a weird man, but funny as hell.

                        For me The Prodigy was definitely the best band I've seen live...it was last summer on an Open Air Festival.
                        I think other good bands were these one

                        Volbeat
                        Slipknot

                            Rage Against the Machine - 50,000 people who know all the words + my favourite guitarist, Tom Morello
                            Blue Oyster Cult - Amazing guitar solos by Buck Dharma, I almost cried they were so mind-blowing

                            Kudos for long setlists go to Pearl Jam and the Foo Fighters.
                            Remedy's currently known projects:
                            Quantum Break - 2016
