    pick 2 bands that you would like to see or have seen together on the same night. I’ll start:

    Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers
    Bruce Springsteen and the E Street Band

    I’m feeling a bit nostolgic after listening to Tom Petty radio on Sirius the past few days. The Springsteen channel is outstanding as well.

    Cheers BA’s

    Was just talking with someone today about a Weezer and Foo Fighters double bill I saw a number of years ago. Talk about a pair of stellar live bands.

    Back in 1988 I saw Stevie Ray Vaughn open for Robert Plant. One of the only times I saw an opener play an encore.
    Probably the best concert I ever saw.

    Dream double bill. I have two.

    Pink Floyd and Led Zeppelin
    Nirvana and Pearl Jam

    Honorable mention
    GG Allin and the Dwarves- someone would probably get murdered

    Best double bill I've seen?
    Chili Peppers and foo Fighters-californication tour

    John Prine and Jason Isbell- NYE 2016 (Kacey Musgraves was there so technically a triple bill)

    Interesting question. I'm not blown away by any new bands on the scene right now. Maybe The Black Keys / 21 Pilots but even now The Black Keys seem a little worn. Joe Bonamassa and an aging Tom Waits? That I'd go to. Maybe they could play together. I missed the Peter Gabriel/Sting show (too much $) but that was probably great. Mark Knopfler's still great, but again, too much $. I did at least get to see Peter Gabriel/U2/The Police once.

    For a dream show I'd have to go with Hendrix in his last days to see how good he really was, and Led Zeppelin prior to '77 when they started doing those massive shows, but not too much earlier.

    Grateful Dead - Pink Floyd....

    They were both fantastic all the times I saw them alone, seeing them together on the same night would be pretty cool...

    Saw Stevie Ray Vaughn twice, both times were fantastic. The show at Pier 84 in 1985 was mind blowing....

    I was on the younger side, but my dad took me to some great concerts in the early 90’s:

    Guns N Roses opened for Metallica
    Pearl Jam opened for The Rolling Stones

    Other more recent favorites:
    Guster opened for John Mayer
    Guster opened for the Barenaked Ladies
    Cheap Trick opened for Aerosmith
    Eric Church opened for Toby Keith

    I saw AC/DC while Bon Scott was still living, warm up for Rush during their All the World's a Stage tour. Also saw a Jeff Beck and Stevie Ray Vaughan double bill.

    That is an outstanding choice. (Although I'd consider putting in Billy Joel for Petty.)

    However, there's only one right answer to this question. We can close the thread now.

    We will respectfully disagree, sir. Just like we respectfully disagree on who will win the Big Ten this year.

    Then I will be 2-0. OSU has a new coach and qb, but as usual we are still likely to be better than everyone else in the B10
