The Greatest Concert Tours of All Time, and Our Personal Favorites, Too
In a way, this is kind of sad. Vivid Seats has listed 100 of the Greatest Concert Tours of All Time. Big time stars, legendary performances. You want to know how many of the 100 Greatest Concert Tours of All Time I've seen? Zero.
According to Vivid Seats, the Top 5 are: 5 - The Jimi Hendrix Experience - First UK Tour (1967); 4 - Madonna - Who’s That Girl World Tour (1987); 3 - Grateful Dead - Spring 1977; 2 - Michael Jackson - Bad World Tour (1987-89); and 1 - The Beatles - 1965 US Tour. I have to admit, it's kind of hard to argue with The Beatles. Click this link if you want to check out the full list of the 100 of the Greatest Concert Tours of All Time.
Not only did I not see any of the 100 of the Greatest Concert Tours of All Time, I've actually never even seen any of those acts live at any time! I have seen some pretty great concert tours, though. Rascal Flatts stands out among the best. In fact, I went to see them twice. Beau says Chris Ledoux probably put on the best concert that he ever saw.
Believe it or not, the concert that I probably enjoyed the most was when Lonestar came to Sedalia and performed at Tractor Supply. You didn't have to pay a fortune for tickets or parking, you didn't have to spend an hour in line to get through security, and you weren't crammed against the other concert goers like packed sardines. Also, I like Lonestar.
