    What was the best sounding concert you've seen?

    We have all seen many bands at different venues over the course of our lifetimes but what show stands out to you as the best sounding you seen?

    For me it was Foreigner.  Foreigner 4 tour, 1981 Madison Square Garden.  The sound was great and Lou Gramm's voice was incredible.

    Radiohead during the Hail to the Thief tour. I could have been in my bedroom with my headphones on it was so clear. Since then I have contempt for succesful bands with sound issues. I don't want to hear it can't be done because it was.

    Joe Bonamassa, Boston, last year.


    I think it may have been the orpheum. Perhaps he sounds even better in other venues, but I was simply blown away. I doubt that had much to do with the venue.

    Jethro Tull at Massey Hall back ('94?) was a memorable show; the acoustics and presence of that place are just exquisite.  I've only been there a couple of times, but the sound for JT was pristine, more so than Yes, for some reason.  I recall the flute solos distinctly.

    Portishead at Roseland Ballroom in '97 was impressive.  I always liked the acoustics there, too. (Apparently, they're closing this year.)

    For outdoor venues, I have a soft spot for the Hollywood Bowl.  I was working in L.A. for much of 2007, and DMB and Arcade Fire were highlights.  The sound was always excellent. 

    And then there's the ultimate: Red Rocks. Widespread Panic, 2001.  I'm not even sure how good the sound really was, but in my mind at the time it was darn near perfect.  (That was the last show of theirs I saw with guitarist Mike Houser (RIP), who died a year later.)

    Nice.  I saw 4 out of the 6 shows they played at Boston Garden that fall. 

    Great sets, but I can't say I ever saw a show at the old Garden that sounded truly great.
