Off to a great start guys, thanks for sharing the memories. Keep 'em coming! Bonus for pictures!

Saw Bryan Adams at Wolf Trap in August. Great show. Brought back lots of memories.

Nothing will top Roger Waters The Wall. Not fair to compare that to any other performer/band or concert. The indoor shows were louder but the sheer size of the outdoor shows was just insane. Took seeing it a few times to really take it all in and appreciate the event.
Best indoor show was Raleigh, for some reason it was the loudest show of the tour.
Best outside show was Stade de France, very last show of the tour and just had a special feeling.

This coming from someone who doesn't drink, do drugs, smoke etc...so I remember all the concerts I go to well.

First; Clapton Slowhand tour, my parents took me at 14
Best lightshow; Starcastle by a mile, they opened for STYX on their Grand Illusion tour IIRC
Roger Waters, Amused to Death, no word to describe
Other memorables (or fuzzy memories!); Buffett, Heart, Molly Hatchet, Feat, Eagles, Damn Yankees, ZZ Top, Mike Cross, Boston... Wow, so many!

Worst ever; Hank Jr. in Huntsville, walked out after three songs, he was ship faced, slurring and couldn't remember words

Motley Crue 1990 Dr Feelgood tour at Joe Louis Arena in Detroit. They were at the top of their game and it was quite a show.

Bodeans, late 90s. No theatrics or stage show, but GREAT music.
Eric Clapton, early 2000s, AMAZING to watch him play.

Ted Nugent - Nov '76, Memorial Auditorium Sacramento

We were 3rd row center and I think seating was around 3500 back then. Ted freakin tore it up.

Mighty Mighty Bosstones. Tough to pick from all of them. Back in college up on stage singing was fun, but bringing my 9 and 5 year old to a show last Xmas was probably the apex.

Well, since I can't remember the ones I forgot I'll have to go with The Stones with Billy Preston at the Music Hall in Boston, circa 1974.

AC/DC (Miami), George Strait (GA dome), and Billy Joel(Madison Square Garden) are the best concerts I've ever been. Jane's Addiction was the biggest surprise they blew me and my wife away. Saw ZZ Top about 3 years ago they still got it. Worst concert ever is Dave Matthews Band, he came out played his songs and stood there like his dog just died. Never talked or did anything literally stood there sang his songs and walked of stage.

Guns n Roses 2017 Wake Forest - just the spectacle of it, although Slash, Axel, and Duff pretty much didn't interact the whole night

Cult 2010 - House of Blues New Orleans - Just happened to be walking back to hotel from dinner and saw they were playing, Sold Out. Paid the guy holding the side door for the band to enter from the bus to let us in. Ian followed us in. Saw them again two months later in Raleigh at the Lincoln.

Pixies in 2010 in Charlotte on the Doolittle tour a month before stumbling on the Cult show.

Pink Floyd 1988 at Carter Finley - That was a fun one
