We were talking about the Foo early and a couple people mentioned some awesome lineups at the shows they went to. So it got me thinking about my dream show and I thought it would be cool to see what everyone else would want to see.
Here are the rules. Three bands. and you have to say why you are picking them. No, BECAUSE THEY ROCK! Give us a legit reason!
Edit:And in terms of dead or alive. Feel free to make a present day one, and a all time one

1st Band: Led Zepp - John Bonham asphyxiated on his own vomit 3 years before I was born
2nd Band: Pink Floyd - Roger Waters quit the band 2 years before I was born.. I dont
find him overly talented except as a lyricist but a true Pink Floyd reunion would include him.
3rd Band: Rolling Stones - Might aswell include the other big band from that era..
3rd one could be interchanged with either Hendrix or the Beatles depending on availability..
Tickets to this concert would be $1000 each, plus you'd hafta join some fan club for $500 just to be able to purchase

Reason: So many choices..
Opener: Kings of Leon
Middle Ground: Tool
Main Show: Foo Fighters
Middle Ground: Temporary
Main Show: Foo Fighters
Forgot my reasons.
Kings of Leon is a crazy good band that doesn't edit their sound much so they sound the exact same live.
Tool because I just saw them live and I'm not over how awesome it was
Foo Fighters for the obvious.
Nirvana because they are one of the most influential bands of my time and I would like to say I've seen them. Even if I was 6-8 during their prime.
Temporary because its a dream of mine to be on the same line up as the Foo
Foo Fighters cause there is noone better

The original Woodstock. It's more than 3 bands, but it actually happened.
1970's Festival Express. Also more than 3 bands, and also actually happened. And it actually happened in Calgary. Seeing a lineup that included Janis Joplin, the Grateful Dead, Tom Rush, The Band, Buddy Guy, Mashmakan and Ian & Sylvia Tyson & the Great Speckled Bird ... in 1970, in MacMahon Stadium ... cool. And hardly anybody remembers it even happened. The cross-Canada train ride with this crew would have been a blast.
Some bands that I will never get to see that I wish I could:
Alice In Chains
A few weeks after crashing head-first into the boards (denting his helmet and being unable to move for a little while) following a hit from behind by Bob Errey, the Calgary Flames player explains:
"I was like Christ, lying on my back, with my arms outstretched, crucified"
