Had the opportunity to see the eagles (with Joe Walsh on Guitar) back in 1979.   Warm up bands were little river band and Heart   GREAT CONCERT!!  That was also back when you could see a concert for 10 dollars or less (for front row seats), you could take cameras in (amongst other things :) ).   
Great time to grow up, and yes the music was a huge part of that.

I saw Little River Band in either '80 or '81 for something like only 7 or 8 bucks but it was only them.  Was not in the Coliseum but another venue (music hall) in town.  Never got the opportunity to see Eagles in concert live.
Whatever floats your boat.

I find that the top concert artists, in most generations, are those who entertain as much with their words and stage performance as with their voice. 
Elvis, Bryan Adams, Garth brooks, Journey(Arnel Pineda, not Steve Perry, who I think actually had the better voice), Black Eyed Peas, etc.  They all owned the stage when they had their concerts.  They did more than just sit on a stool or stand at a mic and sing.  They talked, they ran around, danced, and interacted with the crowd.  I've had the opportunity to see all those above artists minus Elvis.  He died too young for me to enjoy his work. 
I also saw some amazing singers in concert...who just didn't have the greatest concerts and you could feel it in the crowd.  Won tickets to Celine Dion.  I wasn't going to go till the gf demanded we go.  Sucked.  Amazing voice...but put in her CD and it sounded the same.  Boring.  Same was true with an early Mariah Carey concert i went to.  LOVE her early stuff...but the concert was just so blah.
The Black Eyed Peas will never match Carey or Dion in their vocal talents, but their concert rocked from the first beat through to the last ovation they gave. 
Music performed is better than good vocals/music when it comes to concerts.  Wish I could have seen the old Eagles or Elvis or even going back further, I think the Rat Pack most likely threw some legendary gigs.

Groannnnn.  You had to mention Celine Dion.  I can not stomach her especially when I hear her doing one of Heart's hits.  Apparently, she is going to be in town, in I guess June or July.  All I heard was one or the other from my wife today and all I remember is it started with a "J".  She says she wants to go and thought that I would want to go also.  I said, no, not really.  Told her I would give her a ride but to get a couple of the other girls to go with her.  If it is at MOA, I could just drop them off and go over to the mall and hang out until it is over rather than have to deal with traffic for two trips out that way.

So, there you guys go if you are in to her music.  Not me though.

I was very fortunate in the location I was raised just outside of Toledo. Toledo itself catered many big named concerts but Detroit was only an hour drive and Cleveland and hour and half and they drew all the huge names of the times. I have been to well over a hundred concerts since 1970 and my hearing now is showing the signs of it, stagger ed to many and was practically carried of of several I liked to party without limits. Yes remember well you could go to a concert with three headliners and two opening band for ten bucks.

Love Warren Zevon, got to see him in Syracuse, while I was stationed at Griffiss.   Guessing it was 1986 or 87.    All of his albums are good of not great.   Thanks for bringing me back.   BTW, I am finally having my son ship my albums over here to me, we have been separated for almost 6 years now.   Its about 4000 albums and we are shipping via LBC.  Gonna be a fricken nervous wreck till they arrive.

I've traveled with them for almost 40 years now, so far so good
