    Been to a lot of concerts and Springsteen wins hands down! We've seen him in concert dozens of time, first time in 1980 on The River tour and latest time earlier this year. He's spoiled us for every other concert!

    Billy Joel back when he was married to Christie Brinkley. She was there, with baby Alexa Ray. Wonderful, fabulous, terrific. Have also seen Springsteen since Mr. Stitchnripper is a big fan. To me, it was too loud to enjoy. I also saw Elvis in the Macon Coliseum in the early '70s. Great show.

    A few years back, Earth, Wind & Fire teamed with Chicago. The old guys of EW&F still rocked like they did in the 70's (when I was too young to appreciate them)! It was an awesome concert. I also had the wonderful opportunity to see Cher twice on her farewell tour. The first show we drove to Ann Arbor, MI and the show was incredible! The second time she had added more shows and wound up coming to the city I live in. Eight of us girls got tickets. It was a let down as the show was scaled down from the Ann Arbor show (Cher got tired towards the end of her tour). It was still a great time spent with 7 of my girlfriends!

    I have only been to four and they were all enjoyable. Two to see Tom Jones, one to see Barry Manilow many years ago. But I saw Michael Bolton three years ago.

    I'm not sure which was my favorite. Aerosmith, Rick Darringer and the Stars where my first one. The end of the month I'm treating two of my kids to a concert with bands from my past. Styx, Reospeed Wagon (both I've seen 3 times since the 70's) and Ted Nugent all together on the 27th. Last yr my daughter treated me to Lady Antebellam which I loved so this yr I'm treating them for my birthday to the one above.

    Okay - I am old - I saw the Beatles in Seattle in 1966 (yes, I was one of those stupid screaming girls), my other favorite concerts were Moody Blues in 1970 and Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young in 1970. The most romantic concert I went to was Gordon Lightfoot in 1971. We went to a lot of concerts before the girls were born, the most recent was Celine Dion in Las Vegas last year.

    I saw Bruce Springstein a couple of weeks ago and loved it! I missed him when he was in Australia last and was so disappointed but DH and I rocked to him this time and we both agree he is the best. I've seen lots of concerts the one I regret the most missing was Barbra Streisand my sisters saw her and I was soooo jealous !

    My all time favorite was ELVIS...saw him twice in the mid 70's. I have to say that ELTON JOHN and a Beach Boys concert were way up there on my favorites scale.....

    Jimmy Buffett has the best concerts. We live close to one of his venues and go each year and have been for over 20 years. Our sons have turned into Parrotheads too.

    I have seen many many concerts but the two that stand out are Elvis and Bob Segar. Elvis was really a very funny man as well as having one of the best backup singers ever. Bob Segar had me dancing in the nose bleed section the whole show.

    Last year. My husband and I went to see Lady Antebellum with Darius Rucker and Thompson Square. Hands down the best concert I've ever been to, and I've been to a lot.

    Way back in "65" went to Paul Revere and the Raiders with Mark Lindsay. Had tickets bought and paid for when the "Beatles" were in Indianapolis but got flu and couldn't go. Told a friend she wouldn't have to pay me back for the ticket if she got one of their autographs! Woohoo! She got all four!. Still have the ticket.

    I've been to A LOT of concerts. I saw the Beatles, Elton John, Steppenwolf, The Who, Guess Who, Eric Clapton, tons of country acts. Garth Brooks, Alabama--5-6 times, Wynonna, Reba, Alan Jackson 2x, Brooks & Dunn--3-4 times, Kenny Chesney, Sugarland, Lady Antebellum, and a lot of smaller country groups not on the scene very long. The last concert I went to was a couple of years ago and it was the Eagles. That was the best concert I have ever seen because it was all acoustical....just them and their guitars. Next to them I would say Alabama because they are my all time favorite group.
