What is the single best show you saw in 2013?

I know it's pretty hard to narrow it down to just one, especially for some people that go to like 40 shows a year. But if you had to pick one, which would you say was the best?

Mine was Iron Maiden @ Palais Omnisports de Paris Bercy Paris, France June 5th 2013.

Same setlist as I had seen the year prior but the energy and excitement in the building was palpable. I was dead tired when I got to the venue (the Louvre was like a black hole, I'm less tired after a workout or a long day at work) but I probably went wilder for this gig than just about any other I have before. The band fed off the fans and cranked out a fantastic performance. Plus the overall vibe of being in such a cool-looking arena, the history that the place has with Iron Maiden, and just knowing you're there in one of the most interesting and prominent cities on the globe just adds to the intensity. For good measure, add in a cool event shirt and getting in early and getting right at the front and this is a top contender for best gig I've ever seen, regardless of year.

Absu at The Highline in Seattle. It was beyond amazing. My third time seeing them, and definitely the best. I just wish my band had played it... BLEGH!

I only saw Iron Maiden once in 2013 so... yeah

making the trip to Kansas city was pretty fucking cool and the sight seeing was great too. But what really matters is that Maiden did what they always do for me: A little moment of pure happiness

Up The Irons !


Cheers !

Slayer MSG show was pretty awesome. Opeth/Katatonia was great but it seems like ages ago. Helloween was awesome too! Soilwork ditto. Well that didn't really keep true to your thread, but those were the ones that came to mind.

Lamb of God and Testament were probably the most fun I've had at a show all year. Close runner up would be Gojira and Devin Townsend.

Candlebox at the Hard Rock Cafe in Boston. Entire debut album played for it's 20th anniversary. Couldn't have been more than 250 there. It was awesome.
