I went to see Sigur Rós in Auckland in 1996.

It is not an exaggeration to say that it was the most intense spiritual experience I've ever had.

It's difficult to describe just how overwhelming their sound is when you hear them live. It feels like your entire body is one of the instruments playing the song, vibrating in harmony with the music. It's worth the hearing loss!

I saw B.B. King live in Erie, Pennsylvania about 11 years ago. Also saw Weird Al at the same theater like 7 years before that but he can't compare to B.B. King lol. Also saw the Beastie Boys live on the outskirts of D.C., in which I was part of the security crew working the concert. It was during a stay at a recovery house in Philly and we did security for large events at RFK stadium and stuff like that. They had me positioned down on the floor and told me not to allow people to access the restroom by going down on the floor from the seats. I didn't care and let them go anyways lol

Coldplay. The X&Y tour. It was the last show of the tour at MSG. It was just a really well put together show and they played all my favorite songs.

Pet Shop Boys in Wembley Arena.
Very ASD friendly with everyone seated, I worked for EMI then and had a free front row seat.

There's a local act called Radioactive Chicken Heads. They do the papier-mache masks and are very theatrical, they have someone who goes into the audience wearing various costumes for the particular song, dressing as Frankenstein and Chuck E Cheese notably. The music is heavily
' Kennedys/ Voodoo Glow Skulls influenced with the random classic punk/HC cover thrown in. Very tight musicianship and entertaining stage antics. Saw them at a local dive though they play nationally
