But the last when I went to was U2 360 Tour, it was pretty awesome so I guess it was this one.

I think the one that would top them all would be Beck at Pop Montreal in 2005.

First of all, the opening act was the first gig ever for Islands (formed from ex-members of The Unicorns) which was incredibly awesome in itself.

But the actual show was amazing. That guy knows how to pull off theatrics brilliantly. I remember one part of the set in particular where he was playing his acoustic stuff from Sea Change alone on stage. Then, all of the sudden, his band comes back on stage, sit at a table and start eating. It was kind of a wtf moment, until, at the very end of Beck's acoustic set, they start accompanying him by playing with the glasses, utensils and plates. If you have never seen Beck live, it's well worth the price of admission...

Yes, but I left 12 minutes in his 40 minutes washboard solo...

I haven't been to any major concerts with a major band yet but i've seen some culture bands playing in my library and stuff. But my dad has seen lots of concerts like:
Eagles The Farewell Tour
Rammstein

And he would like to see Kraftwerk Live.

Did you know that Brian Gibson had his 4 string bass tuned to fifths and that the A was replaced with a banjo string? And his newer setup is a 5 string with banjo strings for the A and E. Man, that dude has such a unique sound. I wish I knew more noise rock that's as awesome as Lightning Bolt. All I know is Hella and Big Black. And I've heard a little Jesus Lizard.
