I've been to plenty concerts in Utica, mostly 1978 and back. My favorites were Bruce Springsteen at the Aud at Christmas 77 or so or the Alice Cooper Show when they did the guillitine thing. There have plenty of good ones.

Great Topic ! I walked out of ZZ Top once in Utica, thought they were horrible and terribly, obnoxiously loud. I went there to see HOT TUNA who opened for them. But perhaps the BEST concert I saw in Utica was Rod Stewart and the Faces, waaay back when. The Aud was almost empty so everyone gathered on the floor right in front of the band and that group was PURE rock energy and Rod sounded as great as he did on Jeff Becks' "Truth".
Probably the best and purest rock band I ever saw live - they just went nuts playing !!! I saw the original Ramones at 4 Acres in the mid-late 70s, too. Quite an experience: hated 'em and was fascinated at the same time. ELO put on a great show at the Aud decades ago, with string sections and green lights and near perfect sound system...

And people wonder why there aren't great concerts coming to the Aud anymore. Look at the place. It's a dump.

The best concert I went to was Billy Joel at the Carrier Dome. All tix were $40! Top it off, Orange County Choppers was there presenting Billy Joel his new bike they built.

If any of you watched American Choppers' Billy Joel Bike episode, that was the concert.
