After reading the Ultimate Concert Lineup forum, I started thinking, I have already seen a few pretty damn good concerts!
So, what concerts have you been to that had all bands you liked, there was no band there just to fill a slot in your opinion.

Mine are...

Machine Head
Coal Chamber

Dimmu Borgir
Keep Of Kalessin

Shadows Fall
Lamb Of God

In Flames
Down The Sun

It was pretty awesome. I met the guitarists from 3IOB and Holy Grail, as well as all of SD. I bought their album and EP and got them signed.

Also, when Eluveitie did "Slanias Song," everyone from the first three bands came out on stage dressed as leprechauns to sing along, and they had stuffed unicorns (?) for some reason. There was confetti and balloons were flying everywhere and about 20 guys were line-dancing in the pit... It was an interesting experience.

It was actually my first bigger metal concert in 2005:
~Tristania: with Vibs, Kjetil, Osten, Rune and Einar
~Trail of Tears

All three were among my fave 10 bands back them, Tristania being one of my absolutely favourites, I cried when they came to stage and started with Beyond The Veil.

Metallica wasnt there because it was a thrash concert, and the venue was too small so they wouldnt have been able to make enough money to sell out.

FYI, Metallica spent their 30th anniversary concerts in a small club in San Francisco, and sold the tickets for less than ten bucks a show. They could have played in Wembley, sold the tickets for $200, made a DVD, but they didn't. Yeah, Metallica likes publicity usually, but they're not controlled by that.
This is my sig, respect it. Please.

I recently saw Times of Grace, followed by Shadows Fall, then Chimaira and headlined by Machine Head. That was enjoyable.

I guess you could say these are the best line ups I've ever seen because they were back to back days, and on a weekend too!!!

Saturday: Finnish Metal Tour
Swallow the Sun

On a side note there was a high school prom held across the street from the venue. We got horrified stares from them and they couldn't figure out how the parking garage worked.

Sunday: Amon Amarth: North American Tour
Amon Amarth
Holy Grail

I think it's safe to say that that was the best weekend ever

Good ones I've been to:

Gojira/Trepalium/Klone (got there too late for Klone though)
Paradise Lost/Insomnium/Vreid
Threshold/nobody else, just a 2 hour set

I'm not talking about the quality of the concerts themselves, just the quality of the line-up. Of course, they were good, just not all necessarily as good as other concerts not listed here.

I am going to kind of cheat here and say that the Katatonia, Insomnium and Swallow The Sun concert I saw in 2007 here in States would have been absolutely perfect if it weren't for Scar Symmetry being thrown into the mix. All three of the aforementioned bands compliment each other so well mood-wise and sonically yet Scar Symmetry are like the antithesis of the gloomy, reflective and gray sound so they threw a hefty wrench into what would have otherwise been a perfect line-up. I had a similar experience with Sentenced, Dark Tranquillity and In Flames because Killswitch Engage was dismally thrown into the fray, haha.

I never thought I'd hear Älvestam-era Scar Symmetry in a line-up being described as a bad thing. But given the mood that the other three bands give off, I'll have to agree with you on that one. No matter how dirty I feel saying it.

Back in May:

Last Month:
Cult of Luna

I sort of prefer the May lineup, since it's two bands I adore that go with each other perfectly (like chocolate and vanilla), although I liked this newer lineup too. I mean I didn't really care for Intronaut, and Cult of Luna while good, started to really drag on after a while, but it just left a nice atmosphere and the four bands actually compliment each other pretty nicely as well, just these four modern, experimental bands doing their thing on stage was really cool.

I could also mention the one I saw in September (last year) or February, but I didn't stay to see all of the September one (left before the last act, Devin Townsend), and the one I saw in February was mostly just no-name local bands that didn't leave much of an impact except for a few (Through These Gates and Xanthochroid).

Hellfire Festival in the NEC. Only went for one night, but my word, what a night

Fields Of Nephilim
My Dying Bride

I think there was another band as well, because I remember leaving the main hall for about 30 minutes to try another stage because I didn't like them. No idea who it was though.
