Three bands, one stage, one concert ...

    The "concert advice" thread got me thinking and besides not wanting to EVER see Def Leppard, Foreigner and Styx in one setting, I do think it is a cool concept to get three bands together.

    If you comprise your own show of three bands to see in one place on one night, who would you choose?

    My hat trick show (Jimmy Page and Paul Rodgers would stay busy): The Firm, Bad Company, Led Zeppelin

    I've seen the G3 show that Joe Satriani has done the last several years. I saw Satriani, Steve Vai and Eric Johnson together. I like that concept too.

    I saw the Charlie Daniels Band, the Marshall Tucker Band and Grinderswitch in one show years and years and YEARS ago.
    Don't laugh. Much better show than you'd think.
    To close, all three came out and did Will The Circle Be Unbroken. Tremendous.

    That sounds like a good show, Moddy. I loves me some Marshall Tucker.

    Would have loved to see a Willie, Waylon and Cash trifecta.

    As it stands, I'm just happy I've seen Willie and saw Johnny Cash before he died.

    Still have to see Kris Kristofferson -- who is still touring, I think.

    During the show, some asshole threw a firecracker on stage.

    Charlie Daniels stops and says, "You've come to see the wrong three bands to be pulling that shit. Ain't a one of us who would mind coming out there and kicking your ass."

    The place went nuts.

    Whether they're alive or in condition to perform doesn't matter: Dylan/Cash/Sinatra. No clue if the latter could mesh with the former, but they're all good enough to find that common ground.

    Still around edition: Pearl Jam/Soundgarden/Alice in Chains (I've been in a 90's alt mood lately)

    For my Southern rock/country fix, I'd like to see the Allman Brothers (with Duane) and Lynyrd Skynyrd (the lineup before the plane crash) and then Hank Williams Jr. at his early '80s best. Man, that would be one hell of a party.

    One dream show would be some rock 'n' roll Southwestern style:
    - The Pistoleros
    - Roger Clyne & the Peacemakers
    - Old 97s

    I've been lucky to see three great bands on one stage on one night during various musicfests....the best being Slayer and the reunited Judas Priest and Black Sabbath during Ozzfest '04.

    I saw an odd show a few years ago: 311, Offspring and Dashboard Confessional -- very weird mix, very good show. And I saw Green Day, Blink 182 and Saves The Day before that.

    My dream show would be Green Day, Bad Religion and NOFX.

    I'd pay huge amounts of money to see Def Lep, Bon Jovi and Warrant for my late 80s fix.

    In '82 The Who, The Clash, and David Johanson played Shea Stadium. Pretty good bill.
