Started with Spanish Castle Magic- some Band of Gypsies songs, the Star Spangled Banner, and a looooong version of Voodoo Chile Slight Return! Awesome!
And of course a notable concert was TFK live in Milwaukee (TSOAF tour)!!!!!
Anyone else want to chime in?

One of my favorite concerts of all time is still The Beatles Bootleg Band (tribute band off course). They played for free at the market in Bruges (that is right in front of the Belfort building aka the building someone jumps off in 'In Bruges'), like 5 minute walk from my house at the time. Our mayor announced them and when they came up the stage it felt like: they sounded like them, they acted like them, they even looked like the real Beatles. The thought crossed my mind; what if all the bandmembers are still alive and acted like they were their own tribute band? It sounds like typical Beatleshumor. When the concert just began we were with only 20 people or so standing before the stage, the market place felt pretty empty. Later when I turned around there were people as far as the eye could see. I thought entire Belgium was standing there all of a sudden, children were sitting on the buildings, it all felt sick!
Guy I was with had all booze in his bagpack, everyone couldn't understand; 'what how did you guys got drinks so quickly?' Man and the atmosphere, it was fantastic. To me just a perfect, perfect concert.
Other free stuff:
*Also at Bruges Monza and Red Zebra playing the same evening.
Monza was very emotional and powerful, much better than cd. That kind of magic vibe you don't want to be anywhere else in the world but here. Red Zebra known in Belgium especially for the song 'Can't live in a living room' seemed to change band members, choirs, kids, guests every song with a very entertaining guy on the microphone. Nicolas Delfosse, the local cdstore owner at the time - who was a previous member (cult moment for us cd/lp/etc collectors) - was suddenly announced ' for the chicks we brought Nicholas' while he was all getting shy. Great fun.
*Me and my girlfriend were going to London for a week, we hadn't slept since ages when we arrived , but right before checking in we went to see a Vivaldi gig for piano and violin. We could hardly stay awake, yet the performance was mesmerizing. My Girlfriend couldn't fight the tears, because she enjoyed it that much.
More stuff (non-free concerts ):
-Orange Goblin was a true eye-opener.
-Off course I also went nuts in seeing some of The Flower Kings in real person
-One of my earlier concerts was Zuco 103, very worldly I enjoyed it much back then.
-Janelle Monaé, my girlfriend's favorite concert of all time (this took place later than that Vivaldi gig). Also very entertaining!
-Kurt Vile, very emotional!
