My fiance and I both agree ours was Robert Plant & Band of Joy at the Auditorium Theater in Chicago. We happen to prefer tiny venues.
What was yours?

SCI – Rothbury 2009… It was just over the top crazy.
2nd – Pink Floyd 1994 – Pontiac, MI…
There is a 500 way tie for 3rd.
8:20 am April 20, 2012
I was there in 09! Crazy good show.
I really can't pick my "best" show. Probably Phish, Coventry '04.

The production value that show was just out of hand. I don't think they could have added anything.
Night #2 of Lakeside Dave Caravan last year, I really enjoyed for some reason. Not the #1 and others seemd to voice displeasure but I thought it was a great show.

Night 3 of AC caravan was my best Dave show yet, maybe…lol.

I'm really hoping to enjoy Dave at Hangout. He's one of my long time favs (my dog is even named Dave) but the two times I've seen him have just been miserable situations where I couldn't enjoy it. I'm bound and determined that third time is a charm. :)

I'm hoping for a pseudo night three type performance from DMB at the hangout considering they have 2 one night stands right before they play and it's the third show of their tour.

When I was in 9th grade (1987), I saw Greg Allman on the “I’m No Angel” tour. The security was so lax at the Houston County Civic Center that I was able to sit on the side of the stage. I sat criss-cross apple sauce in front of Greg’s organ while he played.

STS9 at the Boulder Theater 9/9/2010 epic night, epic jams… nothing beats an intimate tribe show
2nd best would be Lotus at the Mishawaka Amphitheater on 7/17/2010, besides Red Rocks its definitely the best venue ever check it out if you get a chance

@dontburnthepig, you actually enjoyed coventry? ive heard terrible, terrible things about that weekend, and trey's state especially
4:58 pm April 21, 2012
Yeah, there were some definite crappy points, like actually getting there. Then standing in the mud wasn't all that fun, but at the time I had myself convinced that it really was there last show. The crowd was still pretty awesome and nobody was really bitching once the first set started. Trey and Gordon were awesome together, all in all, wouldn't change a thing.
9:23 am April 22, 2012
The time is always what we make of it. To be honest, trey on h… never mind. I wish the best for his health… anything else would be selfish

Phish New Years eve 2011, followed by 5 other Phish shows, then probably the Avett Brothers

U2 @ Soldier Field, July 5, 2011. Fouth of July weekend, the 360Stage, and an almost religious type experience (was also my first U2 show). One of the few shows (along with a couple of Dave shows) that I can call EPIC.
Third row center at DMB / Hullabalou = 2nd.
Dave Matthews & Tim Reynolds / Palace Theatre, Louisville = 3rd.

SCI in Rothbury 09. Desert Dawn was off the hook. It was sensory overload with all the big beach balls going around, fire dancers, the Hula dancers on the podiems. I got under the Big Red Ball twice.
