Mine is (after considerable thought)

Assuming the show should be in our concert going lifetime, the one I really missed out on was either of the two below (I had recently really got into his back catalog after being exposed to him through BITUSA) but was on vacation in Colorado during his Maryland stop).  Little did I know I would have to wait 11 years before he would tour with the band again.

The 3/25/77 is definitely one of the top five. For me, it has to be a Darkness tour show. For a long time it was the 7/7/78 Roxy or 8/9/78 Agora due to their being small venues and phenomenal performances. But if I have to pick just one, it is this one:

I could have went to both of these shows, tickets were offered, and I didn't go.  My concert going partner in crime, Hey Eddie, went and I've been kicking myself in the arse  ever since. I would have loved to have been there for the Q&A especially if I was called upon... alas it was not meant to be, sigh.
