Saw the Doors after Jim died but I was too young to know that was a big deal. They were really good anyway and Flourescent Leech and Eddie were great but kind of a strange opening act.

Great Canadian Picnic, summer of 1980.
Hailstorm and crazy winds in the afternoon so concert suspended for awhile due to safety. Got some acid when we went to the parking lot to ride things out. After that everything was fine! Saw Frank Soda and the Imps for the first time. What a show. Here’s a video of Frank Soda:
Deep Purple was crap and were booed heavily. Concert was stopped in the wee hours of the morning, after a stabbing. Near the end, there were many piles of beer cans as high as your head, clothing, garbage and people littering the ground. We didn’t need to buy beer because we brought in a watermelon filled with liquor.
@jeff4598 - interesting you mention Jeff Buckley - one of the weirdest concerts I was ever at was Jeff Buckley at the Brainwash in San Francisco. The Brainwash was a laundromat that had a small room upstairs where they would sometimes put on music for 40 or 50 people sitting in folding metal chairs. This was well before his album came out; I wasn't even familiar with him; the girl I went with was a big fan. Great gig!
I am not sure which concert would meet the criteria.
Maybe Boston in 1979 because I am pretty sure that the stuff we were smoking was not just cannabis?
Santana in 1981 because I pretty much passed out & cannot remember it?
The Grateful Dead in 1982 because of the stuff we bought in the parking lot from the hippy looking chick with hairy armpits?
