Friday Fun: The Best Damn Show In 2009 – Period!

Our last Friday Fun thread of the year is a simple one: What was your best concert experience of 2009?

We’re not necessarily talking about your favorite band or artist. Maybe your best of the best selection is due more to presentation, the acoustics of the building, or the way venue staff treated you once you walked through the turnstiles, than your own personal feelings for the headliner.

And don’t forget packages, festivals and secret fan-only shows. Yes, it’s not easy picking the best concert experience of 2009, but we think you’re up to the task. Rattle the question betwixt your ears for a while and then post your answer in the thread below.
