    Oh man, I was at that Richmond Bon Iver show!  I saw them/him damn near exactly a year ago in a series of Brooklyn and the most recent shows were so different, almost solo.    Loved it!!     Also saw the National at Forrest Hills so we may  have the same tastes.  :)

    The Bon Iver 22 a Million album isn't for me.  I've spun it twice and did not like it at all.  Very different from his previous stuff, but hey, maybe it'll grow on me.

    Loved the 5 piece trombone section & seeing Bruce Hornsby play with Justin on Beth/Rest.
    INCREDIBLE show...but yeah, I'd consider it more of a Justin Vernon solo show than a Bon Iver one!!

  • This is a great thread. With all the thoughts of PJ touring in 2018 it's good to be reminded to look back at some of the great live music in 2017. 
    derbydave and jojorice, seeing Soundgarden on your lists, what a heartbreaker. last time for me was 2013. always amazing.

    anyway, thought I'd contribute from a European perspective. my list, no particular order:

    The Who performing Tommy in full - Royal Albert Hall, London
    Glen Hansard - Teatro Circo, Murcia
    Shawn Smith - Half Moon Putney, London
    Eddie Vedder - Hammy Apollo, London
    Prophets of Rage - Brixton Academy, London 
    Mark Lanegan - Koko, London

    Bon Iver - Salle Pleyel, Paris

     Ya, it's been a rough year for music.  Saw Soundgarden a week before Chris passed.  I almost went to their Birmingham show too which was after Atlanta.  Tom Petty was another one that was a tough loss.  Just grateful and blessed that I got to see both of them.

    The worst opening act seen-to-date award: 
    10/20 Death Grips (opened for Ministry)- The Agora, Cleveland.

    *Yes, I realize that there are three in the #1 position.  
    - The Lumineers made 12,000 people feel like they were sitting in an intimate show in their living room.
    - The National was, well, The National.  :deep breath in and tears in my eyes:  A beautiful night of music.  To me, they are a follow-to-see band.  Just beyond thankful that I was able to go experience this live. 

    - Natalie Merchant was one of those concerts that had such an emotional release that I was left in tears for the first three songs-- so much so that I was barely able to see and my daughter reached over and patted me on the knee.  Tears welled in my eyes and poured down my cheeks.  Such beautiful music that just reached in and hugged my heart.
