Recently I was able to attend the Billy Joel Concert at Shea Stadium. I've been to only a few concerts in my life, like 10 or so, and must say what a great show! He was amazing he had awesome guests, the whole crowd vibe was amazing. Paul McCartney came out and closed with Let it Be! It was amazing. What is the best concert you have ever been too, what memories stick out with you the most?

Hi there kaytee717 I went to see UB40 in New Jersey somewhere I can't remember where but it was the best concert I have been to even though they weren't my favourite band at the time and are not now but it was a good night all the same.

Hi kaytee717, That must be really fantastic, I like Billy Joel and Sir Paul McCartney, you are very lucky to see Sir Paul and have never seen him, I was one of those Beatles mad yougters. I have seen Sir Cliff Richard many times in concerts and also had his autograph. Tamara

Me and The Rolling Stones - This was such a thrilling experience for me! I won the front-row tickets and "Meet and Greet" with the fellas by creating the winning banner in a radio contest. (A picture of the banner is posted in my profile if you want to see it.)
I've been to many concerts in my life. I won most of the tickets from a radio station. But the best concert I ever saw was The Rolling Stones. I won front row tickets AND backstage "Meet and Greet" with the guys! It was totally awesome!!! The concert itself was awesome. They played in the front of the stadium, then walked along a catwalk to the middle of the stadium and continued playing there. NO ONE sat down during the entire concert! Meeting them was a thrill I'll never forget. They were so nice! Well, Mick was more business-like, but the others were very friendly. I got a hug from Keith and Ron!!! Here's a picture of us (I'm the short one on the right LOL). Yep, that's Ron's hand on my shoulder.

One of these days I'll upload the pictures I took of the guys walking up the catwalk. I took a lot of pictures of the concert, but with the lighting the way it was, most of them just didn't turn out. But yeah, it's an experience I'll never forget! P.S. They're a lot shorter than I thought they were! I believe Mick is the tallest at about 5'8". And, to answer another question that a lot of people have asked me, they're much uglier in person! LOL

For those that may not know...Mick turned 65 today and Keith will be 65 within a few months (even though he already LQQKS 75)! Mental...bet there is one person you'd like to 'x' out of the Stones pic...
