Thursday Three-for-All (Best Concerts)

with 4 comments

What are the best concerts you’ve ever attended?

Not just about the music, but the surroundings, the friends, the weather (for outdoor concerts), etc.

Here are mine:
1) k.d. lang—At the Alabama Theater in B’ham. I had front row seats and backstage passes, and she was awesome!
2) Amy Grant—Oak Mountain amphitheater in B’ham. I’m not a huge AG fan, but she was great, the two acts before her were great, and it was a beautiful evening.
3) Dan Fogelberg—Oak Mountain. He came alone without his band, and did all his old stuff. And it was another beatiful evening weather-wise.

  1. Three come to mind immediately:

    Lyle Lovett live at the Majestic theater in San Antonio.
    Ashley Cleveland and Kenny Greenburg in a micro concert for 50 people at Laity Lodge in the Texas hill country.
    And last, the Indigo Girls at an outdoor theater in Austin. It rained, so they had to play completely unplugged, just Amy and Emily.

  2. Uh. Well….

    I’ll go for one of the Michael Card concerts I’ve attended. The most recent one. Very mellow guitar. Very melodic and meaningful.

    I liked the Rich Mullins Memorial concert at Calvin College. I wanted to see him for the first time, but the Lord took him home, so I went to that. I especially enjoyed the music of the Kid Brother’s of St. Frank, that evening. Though all the rest was fine- the Ragamuffins.

    And I enjoyed John Michael Talbot strumming his gentle guitar and singing a number of his songs. Very good. And he shared some good thoughts, as well.

  3. Peter Gabriel in Berlin, 2004 – long story, but his engineer got us passes at the last minute. there were no seats remaining, so we walked out and pretty much just stood right off the side of the circular stage – like being on-stage. venue was the velodrome in old east berlin. later went back stage with introductions all around followed by german festivities.

    so many more great shows, but that’s the first one that comes to mind.

    come to think of it, i met the same guy in barcelona in 2005 (annual trade show thing) and we toured the gaudi cathedral for hours. oh my! about 2/3 of the way up a spire, i started sobbing – overtaken with the glory of god that gaudi had clearly felt when given this remarkable creation. if there is a more deeply inspiried building on the planet, i have yet to see it. a concert of praise in living stone.
