I wish I could find the live performance from Garth Brooks Too tour of 'Ain't going down (till the sun comes up)'

Starts out with a wicked Harmonica/Guitar dual that is flat awesome... And ends up with Garth flying around the stadium on a zip line. VERY high energy.

Here it is in a reaction vid (sorry about the reactors) Starts about 2 minutes in.

You cannot "COEXIST" with people who want to kill you.
If they kill their own with no conscience, there is nothing to stop them from killing you.
Rational fear and anger at vicious murderous Islamic terrorists is the same as irrational antisemitism, according to the Leftists.

I'd venture to guess that "the best live performance in history" was likely never recorded for posterity.

If a political party does not have its foundation in the determination to advance a cause that is right and that is moral, then it is not a political party; it is merely a conspiracy to seize power.

You kidding? I know those were mostly actors with a gosphel choir mixed in,but in the  Holy Roller Church I grew up in,those people would be considered to be restrained,and somebody would be asking them what's the matter.

If you think I am just a-woofin,find yourself a Holy Roller Church and attend services one Sunday. Just make sure you don't get in anyone's way when "The Holy Ghost" is visiting their bodies and minds,or  you could get hurt. Accidentially,of course. No one there is likely to hurt you on purpose.

BTW,ALL American music,including and maybe even especially "soul music" originated in the rural Protestant Churches in the American South.

Been there done that... In fact I do it all the time. Ain't got my own church... I drift around... But I get along pretty good with the Pentecostals and the Baptists.

@roamer_1

And ESPECIALLY the organ! You can NEVER overlook that Sunday Church Organ.

AND.......truly,why WOULD you want to overlook it. Two or three notes in,and I can feel my blood pressure already rising. Admit it,it's the same for you.

Fundie churches MIGHT not have the most up to date heating and cooling systems,or even up to date wiring in some cases,but they ALL have "monster organs" with people playing them that seem to think they are directly hooked up and conversing with Jesus.

The two shows above are indeed excellent and certainly deserving and  worthy of being pointed out.  I have been to many concerts over the years and have seen some really great performances.  It boils down I believe to personal preference.

Elton John, The Moody Blues, Yes, Willie Nelson, Gordon Lightfoot, Emerson Lake & Palmer, Pink Floyd,  REO Speedwagon, Styx, Foreigner, Journey, Ted Nugent, Aerosmith, Alice Cooper, and many others were all great performances.

I however lean towards Elton John and The Moody Blues because of their use of full orchestras incorporated into their music and their pure unbelievable talents. I have seen both of them 3 times and all 3 times they were absolutely fantastic...

Music of yesteryears certainly outdo music of today; there are some talented musicians but none can hold a candle to some of the greats.  I'm sure those much younger than I would beg to disagree.


I can agree with most of your post @libertybele . I loved the two Moody Blues concerts I went to. I've only seen Elton once with Billy Joel. Joel outdid him...and oddly enough, that is the only concert I've ever been to that totally broke my ears. Considering it was a far more mellow than some I've been to, it seemed odd. Bad sound man I guess.

I've seen most of the bands you listed and more.

I am going to post the best, funnest concert I've ever been to and fully expect  :silly: *****rollingeyes***** and 999yawn.

Neil Diamond...great showmanship (sequins and all) and tons of audience participation.

Best c/w concert...Clint Black. The guy really likes performing and his audience.

The worst...Van Morrison. Maybe having a bad night, I don't know.

I saw Neil Diamond as well and it was a really fun concert @berdie

The worst concert that I ever went to was The Rolling Stones.  The arena was huge and we basically watched it on a couple of screens scattered here and there and the sound quality was very weak.

I haven't had a chance to see many c/w concerts, but I would love to see Keith Urban.

The 1st concert for me was ELTON JOHN (Bi-Centennial "Philadelphia Freedom" Tour) in 1976 at the Capital Center in Maryland.

Then in quick succession... ROLLING STONES (Satisfaction), EARTH, WIND and FIRE and THE WHO.

@berdie

Van Morrison is a VERY gifted singer and songwriter,but he is also a raging alcholic that lives on anger.

Sometimes his performances are as good as they can get,and other times he sucks all the air out of the room. Depends on his anger and alcohol intake level.

I have been VERY lucky in that both times I saw him live,he was having good days.

And "Yes,I AM a huge fan of his music,but not so much of a fan when it comes to the man."

As an aside, a friend's daughter who had brittle bone disease was in hospital and they screwed up her electrolytes. She had what was described as a metabolic stroke, which left her pretty much blind, and on top of the bone disease, confined to a wheelchair. At one point, no one expected her to speak again, but on the way home, Garth was playing on the radio, and she piped up "Garth Brooks". While her recovery was far from complete, it began then and there.

As she got older, she was granted a wish by the Make-a-Wish folks, and her wish was to meet Garth. They flew the whole family down to meet backstage with Garth and the Mrs. (from roughly this era in the video), and they were kind, patient, and gracious hosts who spent over an hour with that disabled girl and her family. It, for her, was a wish come true, and I will ever think well of Garth and his wife for that. Now that she is no longer with us (she passed a few years back), I still think well of them for that.

By the time he did it, I reckon he already had more money than he would ever need - But walking off the stage never to return for decades - Because it wasn't good for his  children for him to carry on like that - When he was at the very TOP of his game, and his game was at the very TOP of the Country music game... Even still, to walk away from it like that shows a character that is both deep and wide.

So I can easily believe every bit of the story you told us.  :beer:
