Best Concert Opener/Closer

What's the best concert opener or closer that you have seen or want to see?
Best Opener I've Seen
Saints Of Los Angelas-Motley Crue
What a earthshaking opener this was when used with the clock tower countdown
Best Closer I've Seen
Awakening-Switchfoot
Always thought this would be a great closer,fortunately they did close with this when I saw them in 2009,great fun way to end the night

Best Concert Opener I Want To See
Last Man Standing-Bon Jovi
Hope they bring this back as an opener for their next tour,a great rocking song to open a show with.

Best Closer I Want To See
Crazy,Crazy Nights-Kiss
Very unlikely this will happen,but this would be an amazing closer,the whole content of the song is like it was meant to close a show.

Best Opener I've Seen: Moonchild by Iron Maiden. SSoaSS is one of my favorite albums (and is what got me into Maiden in the first place), so hearing it live was killer.

Opener I Want to See: Dopesmoker by Sleep (even if it's just a fragment of it). Enough said.

Best Closer I've Seen: A tie between Five Year Plan by DRI and Pussy by Rammstein. The former came at the right time when everyone was tired, but they still got together for one last pit; the latter was just goddamn hilarious for the show, especially with the dick cannon.

Closer I Want to See: Solitude by Candlemass, especially if it follows At the Gallows End.

Best closers ive seen are Within My Blood by Skeletontits and Chant for Eschaton 2000 by Behemoth.

The first thing that comes to mind for openers isn't a real opener, but they usually play it 2nd - Nile's Sacrifice Unto Sebek.

Best Opener I've seen: Very close between Disciple by Slayer,[sic] by Slipknot and Sonnet by Rammstein. Honestly can't decide between them.
Best Closer I've seen: Bury Me In Smoke by Down.
Best Opener I want to see: Suicide Note Pat. I and II by PanterA, but of bands still around, Diamond Eyes by Deftones or Aces High by Iron Maiden.
Best Closer I want to see: Octavarium by Dream Theater.

The only other song I wouldn't mind hearing them open with would be Light Up The Sky.

I doubt they'll ever do On Fire again. Wolf, while a solid backup singer in his own right, simply doesn't have the range that Mike did.

The best opener I ever saw was Virgin Black Lacrimosa (Gather Me)/Domine, mostly because I had no idea who they were and they floored me with that song.

I can't think of the rest right now.

Best Closer is definitely Infecting The Crypts for me. I think Suffo has closed with it 3 of the 4 times I've seen them.
