Top 5 Live Performances

Tad_MTad_M Member, Rooster Endurance Member, Level 2 Supporter, POTM
Just saw Hamilton the other night. Truly awesome.
Got me thinking. Top 5 live performances I've witnessed. What are yours?

1. Pink Floyd - Momentary Lapse Tour -LA Coliseum - 1988*
2. Rush - Presto Tour - Cincinnati - 1990**
3. Clapton - Irvine, CA - 1988
4. Hamilton - MSU Wharton Center - 2019
5. Tie: ELO - Spaceship Tour - Wash DC - 1978
Chris Cornell - Acoustic - Lakewood civic Cleveland - 2013

* No comments from Rush fanatics. I also saw the Hemispheres and Signals shows in 1978 and 1982. Presto was their finest tour in my opinion.
* * I do not even consider listing Pink Floyd indoor at the LA Sports arena in 1987. It was so surreal and perfect, I'm not even sure I experienced it. Nothing comes close and I would have a list of one.....

    Was the the one with the Disney High School Rock kids? One of my kids had free tickets to it in Montreal. I think the two boys and their two dads represented over 50% of the males in the audience.

    I'll never forget the time that George Clinton and Parliament Funkadelic had their bus break down and wound up playing a show at my shitty frat house in college in 1994.
