I am so Jealous, I would kill to see them.
I just got home from seeing Rammstein at the Nassau Coliseum in NY. Quite possibly one of their best shows yet, and I got tons of video (5GB worth) to prove it.
Eric Clapton (w/ Mark Knopfler) - University of New Orleans, Lakefront Arena - 1990
Electric Light Orchestra - 1981
Rush - 1981
So many I can't remember. The most I've been to is Metallica, whom I've seen 15 times, going back to the And Justice For All tour in 1988.

Funny concert moments: My first concert in 1986 was Van Halen at the Cow Palace on the 5150 tour, there were so many people smoking pot, and the cops ignoring it. I was freaking out, I had no idea that hundreds of people smoking pot = the cops can't arrest them all. Also, when they did their obligatory one Sammy Hagar song, I Can't Drive 55, Sammy was playing on a catwalk waaaay up above the crowd. He took off his red (of course) t-shirt and threw it down into the crowd and it landed about three feet away from me. I reached for it and... about five burly dudes grabbed it and started having a tug-of-war. I was like, ok that's all you, guys!

Type O Negative/Pantera at SJ Event Center, it was the last show of their tour so they were pretty happy. They had a long table up on the side of the stage with a bunch of food on it, TON had done their set and were watching Pantera play. All of a sudden, they get into a food fight with each other, Pantera stops playing, they were all just throwing food at each other and having fun. Eventually Pantera starts playing again and Peter Steele comes out and actually starts sweeping up the stage with a push broom! Then at the end of the song he grabs Phil by around the neck and they both sing the last line of the song into the mic. Hilarious!

Metallica/Kid Rock/Ted Nugent, New Year's Eve 2000 in Detroit, before Metallica came on, they were spotlighting girls in the crowd and they were flashing their boobies, they spotlighted one girl who pulled her shirt up, then her, ahem, heavier friend next to her started to pull up her top, and people started booing. A dude next to me goes, "Damn, how could you boo a pair of !@#$%^s?" I high-fived him.

Metallica headlining Day On the Green at Oakland Coliseum, first everyone started throwing the crushed paper cups that were all over the ground into the air, there were so many flying around at any second it looked like it was snowing. Then people started ripping up the outfield grass and tossing it in the air. It was awesome, but I was thinking, "Hey, the A's made it into the playoffs (that year), they're going to need that grass!"
