Queen @ Verizon Ctr in DC last year.

Paul Rodgers from Bad company on vocals. I didn't expect him to compare in any way to Freddie Mercury, since that would be unfair. But I was pleasantly surprised, and very impressed how well he did. Great singer, he really seemed to fit in with the vibe of the band. And they played a bunch of videos of Freddie Mercury in the background, kind of a tribute to him. :D

Great concert, entertaining show, and great sound quality. They rocked the place.

Well the last gig I went to with a live band was Reprazent at the Q-Club, their first gig in 5 years and they were amazing.

If you mean like a more traditional type concert it was Gogol Bordello with La Phaze supporting, in Wolverhampton, UK. La Phaze actaully totally stole the show, they were awesome. :)

Damn right! It was one of the happiest, funniest gigs I've been to in a very long while.

I'm not saying that i don't like reel big fish, I'm just saying that I would rather hear the death rattle of my only child.

And I think that goes for most "ska" that comes from anywhere but 1960's jamaica
