Leeds 2014 - clear winner for me
Telluride 2016 - couldn't imagine a better venue and atmosphere, great setlist, my 100th show

1. Las Vegas 2000: My first show. The 10th anniversary show. Crown of Thorns2. Gorge 05: Acoustic set to start. Best venue in the country.3. Benaroya Hall 04: Ridiculous acoustics. Still get chills when I hear that version of Black.
Title says it..Mine:3: Berlin 2 2012.. The fact that we had seats in the nosebleeds and that no one else in our section were rocking out, and this still cracks my top 3 is kind of crazy.. But the setlist was just fantastic, the sound was crisp and the boys were super tight and focused all night..! I've had seats 4 times and this was the only time I was was able to completely lose myself and just rock out like I was in the pit..!2: Krakow 2018. Sick setlist, tight as fuck performance, incredible sound in the tauron arena and my only time at the rail so far. My favorite versions of several songs. (Not for You, Porch, C.Numb come to mind) A handfull of songs into the show, you could tell this was not just any show. This was just a perfect night and I cannot wait for this boot! 1: Vienna 2014. The combination of the setlist, the performance, the sound, the crowd and the length of the show makes this my favorite experience so far. They opened with Long Road-Can't Keep-Black and as Black faded out, Ed mumbled "it'll be a good night" into the mic.. As they came back for the first encore, Ed told us how bad the place sounded at soundcheck, but how we had helped it sound great and "now it's one of the best nights".. (My first show, Hamburg 2000, deserves a mention as well.. I had no clue what to expect at a PJ show and was completely mindblown..! It was a life changing event)Your turn!
Randall's Island night 2MSG 9/11/1998Barcelona 2018 - Best crowd since Randall;s island for me.
Only been to 10 shows and am having a hard time making a top 3. No clue how others with more shows are able to do it. In no order and a little cheating. Fenway 2 2 2016Quebec City 2016Berlin or Krakow 2018
Copenhagen 2007Verona 2006 or Philly #1 2013Prague 2018Experience wise.
