    I honestly haven’t been to that many concerts. It’s sad, I know. I have gone to a Mini Kiss concert, though. That was great!

    The predicted high here today is 1. Not cool.

    I think the Radiohead show I went to in May 08 was really the best ever, although I’ve been to some really good shows this past year too. The They Might Be Giants Flood show was really awesome, and a whole lotta fun!

    Mine would have to be Michael Bublé at the Tulsa Performing Arts Center. The concert itself was great, but the acoustics of the PAC added so much to it. I’m very technically oriented, so the speakers, acoustics, and how the music is mixed matter as much to me as the performance put on by the artist. For this very reason I will never again see a concert at the Shrine Mosque (the acoustics are horrible!).

      I’m with you…this is a B town for live shows…I somehow doubt the acoustics in JQH are much of an improvement…anybody know?

      • amber said,

        if the sound quality of “jesus camp” was any indicator, JQH is a bust.

        GET MOTIVATED AMBER!

      • amber said,

        motivated to what?
        ha

      • adamthepugh said,

        I believe you were referring to the Get Motivated! Conference we all went to at JQH silly 🙂

      • amber said,

        i prefer the name enoch coined for it so much that i forgot it had any other name.

      • Megan said,

        Motivated to stay warm and to “prep” for the San Diego folks for next week…. Guess which my top priority is today?!?!?

        Sports arenas typically aren’t great acoustically; that’s not the purpose for which they were built. I saw Michael Bublé at the Sprint Center in KC a year or two after seeing him at the PAC, so it was easy to compare the acoustics of the two venues. While the acoustics were much better than the Shrine Mosque, they paled in comparison to the PAC.

        IMO Juanita K Hammons Hall is the only place in Springfield with good acoustics. We saw the Riverdance and Carmen there, and both had good acoustics although not quite as good as the Tulsa PAC or the Fox Theatre in St. Louis. Phantom of the Opera in the Fox Theatre was probably the best performance I’ve ever seen.

      That’s what I was gonna say. Well, except for all that technical stuff. 😉

      • Emily said,

        ^^ That was to John’s comment, but I also agree with AB. I don’t think I’ve been to a concert in Springfield that sounded decent.

    • Kel/y_H said,

      That’s one of the best things about Kansas City! No shortage of live music.

    Hi, I’m Justin and I just stumbled across your blog. Great song of the day, that record is still one of the best things Jimmy Eat World has done in my opinion. The best show I’ve ever seen was a Radiohead show in May of 08 as well, those guys were the tightest band I’ve ever seen and the light show was incredible. What was the best show you’ve ever seen?

    • adamthepugh said,

      I have a lot of great shows – but my all time is Muse at the Uptown Theater in Kansas City.

      I was at that Radiohead show in 08 in St. Louis which was excellent.

      Seeing At The Drive-In right before they broke up was also cool – they went nuts and were jumping all over the place.

      Zao, Earth Crisis and Living Sacrifice blew my face off in the hardcore metal genre.

      Thanks for checking out the blog Justin!

    Steve Miller Band outside in KC was really good. 6th row at Iron Maiden in KC was an education…OH my EYES and ears!

    I saw Appleseed Cast at the Ballroom when Yankton was running things. Not a great venue, but it was a kick-ass show. Also enjoyed Schuyler Fisk & Joshua Radin at the Beaumont a couple years back…very intimate–the two of them, that is.

    I have a top 3. That’s as small a number as I can manage:

    1. Tori Amos, Strange Little Girls tour, Fox Theatre in Atlanta. She played absolutely everything. This is the longest show I’ve ever been too.

    2. Yeah Yeah Yeahs in some little crap bar in Atlanta, can’t even remember the name of the place, on the Fever to Tell tour. They were my favorite new band at the time, and it was great to have that closeness you get in a small place.

    3. Aerosmith, on the Permanent Vacation tour in Birmingham, in 1988 or 89. Because it was the late 80s and I was at an Aerosmith show.

  8. amber said,

    I am going to do a top three as well. It’s tough to put them in order, but I’ll go with:

    1) the first time I saw Drive By Truckers at the Pageant in STL. The encore was almost longer than the show, so long that the bar closed, but the band kept playing, ending with Patterson Hood (one of the two front men of the band) passing his bottle of bourbon into the crowd and laying down on his back while belting out a cover of “All the People Who Died”. Pure rock insanity at it’s best. The pageant is my favorite venue ever anyway, but that show had exceptional energy and the band was really into it.

    2) The Rolling Stones at the United Center in Chicago. Nuff said!

    3) Tom Waits at the Fox Theatre in STL. The theater is beautiful, and well, it was Tom Waits!

    I just remembered – my most recent most awesome concert was Bela Fleck and the Flecktones!

    That concert was musicianship and style blended with pure groove and musical genius!

    • Steve said,

      If it was the Christmas show they put on last year at Juanita K, I was there, too. And I agree, they were awesome.

      • adamthepugh said,

        Hey cool! Yep – we were up in the front row of the Mezzanine. It was great. Victor Wooten was amazing!

  10. Emily said,

    John, you mean Carmen the musical, right? I vaguely remember that…

    Rufus Wainwright in San Francisco in 2007. Unbelievable live performer. Really.
