What even happened? I kind of wanted to know what his chart would look like

I've seen a ton of incredible shows. My first concert was Springsteen in 2009, which turned out to be the last American tour with Clarence Clemons in the band. That night they played Born to Run in it's entirety. It was beautiful. Metallica left me starstruck, the Chili Peppers killed it, Stevie Wonder's show (SITKOL Performance tour) was nearly immaculate, and Foo Fighters are always top tier, but the best show overall was probably Iron Maiden's 2012 tour, the Maiden England tour. The setlist, stage show, performances, and fucking energy was unmatched by many artists I've seen who are half their age. Can't wait to see them again on April 5th.

As for the worst, I have two which were notably disappointing for different reasons. First, Judas Priest on their supposed farewell tour at Joe Louis Arena in Detoit. The opening band (Thin Lizzy funnily enough) had the best sound of the night, but when Priest came on stage their sound was awful and muddled and I couldn't understand a single word Rob Halford was saying. They were playing well and had a great stage and setlist, but it was a huge disappointment sound-wise. Second was Marilyn Manson at Rock on the Range in Columbus last year. I wasn't expecting much from him but we were there so thought we would watch him as we waited for the headliner. When I say I've never seen an artist mail in a performance like he did, I mean it. He doesn't give a shit anymore and it's pretty apparent. Plus the 45-60 seconds of silence between songs was very awkward to say the least.

Best concerts are:
Neil Young preferably with Crazy Horse and fully electric: different occasions
Nick Cave: especially performing Mercy Seat
Iggy Pop especially on The Passenger
Wilco: different occasions
Sophia
Smashing Pumpkins just after Siamese Dreams; on a later concert they sucked
Sebadoh: different occasions on one he set up his own equipment and just started to play

Worst: double concert from two of my heroes: Built to Spill were uninspired and Dinosaur Jr too loud and not focused

Best was Arcade Fire two years ago. The only word to describe it is euphoric. Unbelievable night.

Then other worthy mentions:

David Byrne and St. Vincent, I was expecting this to be good but I was surprised at just how good it was. Byrne obviously doesn't have the same energy as he did when he was younger but he still has unbelievable stage presence.

Run The Jewels, I got punched in the face but for some reason that stood out to me as a highlight.

Then the worst was Kanye West one week after that Arcade Fire show blew me away. It started off well but it quickly became apparent he didn't want to be there whatsoever. The whole thing was summed up perfectly when he walked off cause he wasn't happy with the curtains around the stage. I love Kanye, his music and his antics but that wasn't cool. Also his DJ kept making fuck ups, he got fired a few weeks later which I suppose was justifiable.

Also if you're thinking of seeing the Strokes my advice is don't bother.
