You could see in person who would it be? For me it's a toss up between Led Zeppelin and The Beatles my 2 favorite groups...
The Eagles reunion tour or The Beatles pre Yoko
3-2-1 TOUCHDOWN FSU
Easy for me.
The Doors - Love Me Two Times (Live in Europe 1968)
I saw Paul McCartney a few years ago which I guess is as close as you will get to a Beatles concert these days. I had great seats on the floor row 5. It was an amazing show, played lots of Beatles tunes. I can't imagine what it would have been like to see all of them in their prime.
The Monkees or Buddy Holly
I'm more of a Beatles guy than a Zeppelin guy, but live I've had have to go with Zeppelin. Most of my favorite Beatles tracks came after they stopped touring.

Way cool brass section.
The poster formerly known as 31-7. Understood by few, known by many, loved by all.
Yup, really good 90's band who never quite made it mainstream over here in the States.
Here is one of their more popular songs:
Him at Woodstock n Monterey woulda been great to see
I saw him in Birmingham where he picked his strings with his teeth and used his mic stand as a slide on the other end. Sounded like music from Mars. Was GREAT!
Saw the Beatles in Jax. Poor sound quality and every girl in the Gator Bowl lost her mind screaming so couldn't hear too well. We froze our yarbals off too!
I saw Led Zeppelin in Tampa 1977 for 3 songs until the riot broke out. FU crazy night!
Ive been to many but i missed PINK FLOYD

Life is good. Now lets go win another championship.
No offense nash but that's why I sometimes wish I was your age to go see these bands in concerts, the only concert I've been to was Dre n Snoop with the up in smoke tour
Probably The Beatles.
Current bands though I think Coldplay would be cool.
Three W's In My Life: Ward, Weinke, and Winston
In this hypothetical are we assuming it is an actual show/tour that happened or a new alternate show taking place in the present with the band brought from a specific time in the past? Just looking at the parameters...
The Beatles seem like an obvious answer, but any video of a live show you see, you can't hear the music over screaming obnoxious girls. It would be like seeing your current favorite band but with an entire audience from a One Republic show surrounding you with deafening shrills.
My choice would be Led Zeppelin, Jimi, and Otis Redding (Stax Volt tour in Europe)
Deserve got nothing to do with it...
None taken. Live concerts were, at least in my day, as much of a social event as a desire to be solely entertained by the music of the band on stage. Of course one can never get the fidelity one hears from a studio recording, and the clash of too high decibel level of "music", with the screams of girls and drunken dudes, all served to make the listening of the experience a lesser of desired outcomes. We mostly went to SAY we went, also to be with our friends, to collectively smoke "Heathen Devil Weed" in an environment where it was mostly tolerated, and meet girls if we didn't already have a GF. The "Faceman" of our group, Waverly Ray (also our lone rich dude), used to pick one up all the time, and was even caught "doing it" in the Girls Bathroom of the Jax Coliseum once. The sheer energy of the experience,was palpable, much the same as it is in the Doak when we are playing a strong team like the u of f.
As a musician, the few real "concerts" in we played, were very strange for us. We were a Pop-Top 40 dance band, used to playing for teens who wanted to dance and dance and dance some more. When we fronted for Eric Burdon and the Animals, we were completely taken aback by the initial hostility of the crowd - "We Want the Animals!", "We Want the Animals!", "We Want the Animals!" greeted us as the curtain rose. We calmed them down with our initial song, and some few even started dancing on the periphery. As we finished to a standing O, we felt on top of the world as the screams and thunderous applause washed over us. An hour and a half later, Eric and his pals come on, drunk, cussing, and showing their ass. Slurring their words, playing weird, and just crapping in their white hat, they were eventually met with: "We Want the Echoes!". "We Want the Echoes!", "We Want the Echoes!", "We Want the Echoes!" Several of us even got laid that night. Solid!
