Topic: THE concert that is burned forever in your mind. Your best concert ever seen.
<img src="images/smiley_icons/icon_cool.gif" border=0 alt="Cool"> I like to hear the opinion of the "chordians" about a concert they saw. Just saying the words best concert, you will have a pop-up almost immediatly.
You can make a list, or you don't. All extra's are welcome, in particular the "showaspect" ( I sometimes think that musicians with a super show like The Rolling Stones, U2 , use them to cover up there mistakes, just like illusionists like Copperfield do.
My best concert is, definitely, miles before my second.
1) 1976: BARCELONA: performance CARLOS SANTANA and Guests. The guest was PACO De LUCIA, never heard of him untill that evening. The concert, or performance started at 19.00h sharp and stopped at 01.00h in the night. It started with a SUPER, NEVER SEEN Flamenco performance by Paco, all the spanish people in the "bull-fight" arena went crazy, I am talking about at least 100.000 people. 1 Hour later: viva carlos santana
played all his hits and more, in 1976!!!. Around 23.30
concert stop. People were even leaving, BUT that was the most amazing part: it started in full darkness, they just put the stage lights on the player, a special, more "poppy" flamenco: Paco was there again. Lights out, a second guy played along: yes CARLOS, and this game lasted until there were 10 guitar players, all playing the same song, but all in different ways, capo on the 3th fret, on the 5th fret, another rythm, another solo in that way, another in a different way. This my fellow chordians, is a day I will never ever forget.
2) Being backstage doctor, I saw a lot of super performances, on a festival, the biggest in Europe. I even made very good friends, like chris rhea, dave grohl and a lot other musician. But what I will also NEVER forget, that I was invited by the singer of the CURE, on stage. It was 22.30, so it was dark, you could see still at least a huge crowd, with their lighters. Same thing happened with Dave Grohl and Neil Young. Why: because you, not belonging on stage, were able to see the audience, around 80.000 people, and you sop "thinking" that you are NOT a member, altough you feeled like one. That is the best drug I ever had, also a once in a lifetime experience.
- MY GUITAR PLAYS EVERY STYLE = BLUES, ROCK, METAL, so I NEED TO LEARN HOW TO PLAY IT.
