I do not go to concert very often, maybe once or twice a year.

I listen to music mostly through my audio system as much as 4 hours a day.

The most memorable concert that I had attended is the solo recital by Nathan Milstein held at Auditorium of UC Berkely on 1983.

He is one of the virtuoso violinist of the 20th century.

But he was 79 when he played at the recital on 1983.


When he played Partita by Bach, it was not his best.

Although he showed some of his skills, he could not keep up with the fast tempo as much as I wanted.

But as soon as he started playing "
C├ęsar Franck, Violin Sonata in A Major.
".

I just marveled at the sweet sound of violin.

I could realize why he is one of the virtuoso violinist of the 20th century.

He died on 1992 so it is now impossible to attend his live recital again.


How about you ladies and gentlemen?

The Hives at the Birmingham Academy in 2006, the sheer energy of their performances is something I've never seen again. A pity that their records can't seem to capture their live presence.

LCD Soundsystem at Outside Lands in 2016, the performance was streamed live on youtube.
Oh scatch that Live Aid Philly
There are two:

Dec 3 1973 - The Who - Quadrophenia tour, Boston Garden (the old one)

Dec 9, 1974 - Genesis - Lamb Lies Down On Broadway tour, Music Hall, Boston

Rush, Dylan, Skinny Puppy, Dead, Ringo, Beach Boys have all been close seconds but those two stand out.
