They were all great, but Neil Young sort of blew the roof off the dump. :)

The Peter Gabriel show was pretty amazing. I was really close to the stage for that one. The way each song was presented as a little play was really interesting to watch.....props coming up through the stage,...just a real eye opener.

I couldn't agree more - I saw him a few months after seeing Macca, and those were two of the first three shows I ever saw. They were really tough acts to follow. That 1993 tour was just incredible. I really liked "Shock the Monkey" when he was jumping on the bed - and how he ended the show - putting everybody in a suitcase and hauling it off. So clever. "Digging in the Dirt" was really cool, too. And "Steam." Heck, it was all incredible... 8) The tree that came up during "Shaking the Tree." I could go on and on...
And in the end...
