SARS Fest has to be up there. Amongst many others like The Guess Who, Rush, Blue Rodeo, Justin Timberlake etc. fantastic performances by The Flaming Lips and The Rolling Stones but the concert was totally dominated by an epic AC/DC performance.
I was at the SARS concert too (we called it SARStock) but my memories are not so fond. It was very hot that day, concessions were nearly impossible to get and the sound wasn't great either from where I was standing...a mile away. Trying to get back to the city afterwards was also a challenge and I think my group walked 5 or 6 miles before we could hail a taxi.
Two positive memories though...AC/DC being simply fantastic and a few topless young ladies in the crowd. For some reason having the freedom to go topless in public was an issue back then so there was a lot of encouragement from the bands and emcees. I still have the issue of the Toronto newspaper from the next morning which had a special section on the show.
