What's the last concert/performance you folks have attended?
I live out in LA and caught this guy spinning at a local club. Check him out if you dig dance tunes. Kid Caspian: http://underground.alpine-usa.com/RocktheDash/band_index.php?bid=689

Attended an intimate acoustic performance by Metric a couple of weeks ago. I'd seen them twice before with the full band in larger venues, and I gotta say the acoustic stuff exceeded my expectations.
Can't even remember the last one I saw before that...maybe Incubus?

Our last concert was July 12 last year in Winnipeg.
Mark Knopfler was awesome.
He's one of the few guitarists in the world that can play 3 or 4 notes, and can be instantly identified. Just like Carlos Santana or Eric Clapton
I'm 49 and most of the crowd had a few gray hairs, just like me. ;)

Elton John's Red Piano show in Vegas last month. Excellent venue - stunning performance. A real showman.

I think the last show I saw was Ani DiFranco, about 5 years ago. Damned good show. Before that, it was probably Supertramp, also a damned good show.
I think I'm due for a concert... :p

its been a couple years, but last one was The Cult in Calgary. Nothing fancy, no pyro etc like Motley Crue's Carnival of Sins, just good ol rock and roll.
NIN nov 08 in Hamilton; loud, crunchy and amazing, the second time I saw the Lights In The Sky tour.
NIN at the Molson amphitheatre in June
Pat Metheny and Gary Burton at the 4 Seasons Opera House in June
Those two should represent a fairly dynamic shift.:)

David Byrne in Vancouver Feb. 09.
Same as it ever was.

Sorry, my list is a little long but I couldn't leave any of these out...
Nine Inch Nails, Victoria - Dec '08. One of the last shows with Josh Freese. Very sad to see him go.
Radiohead, Vancouver - Aug '08
Beck, Victoria - Aug '08
Nine Inch Nails, Seattle - July '08
Queens of the Stone Age, Victoria - May '08
I would go to another NIN concert but they aren't coming anywhere near me this year. :(
I missed Rush and AC/DC last year and probably can't afford to see AC/DC this year since I'm saving my money in hopes that Tool tours this year.

Saw Ian Tyson at the "The Red Barn" in Oshawa early 90s Sat maybe ten feet away. Wish I bought his latest record there because he was autographing them.
Saw Eddie Coffey, "Five Points Mall" Oshawa. - Free lol
