What concerts have you been to with multiple great acts? I'm thinking more of two and three act shows as opposed to the all day type of events, but list those as well. A few of mine:

1976 - Rush, Styx, Blue Oyster Cult - Hara Arena, Dayton.
1978 - Journey, Foreigner, ELO - Cleveland Stadium
201? - Alison Krauss and Union Station, Willie Nelson - Schottenstein Center, Columbus
2013 - John Prine, Elizabeth Cook - Victoria Theatre, Dayton (RIP JP)

It was excellent. Both played individual sets and then played an entire set together at the end.

Billy Joel and Elton John 

Saw them at the 'shoe. Joel was "sick" that night, John carried about 75% of the show.

Meant to mention in my first post my one and only all day rock show:

1975 - The Outlaws, Styx, Bobby Womack, Status Quo, Nitty Gritty Dirt Band, Mahogany Rush, Foghat, Blue Oyster Cult, Black Oak Arkansas, Aerosmith (REO Speedwagon was scheduled but cancelled) - Nippert Stadium

I'm a huge fan of Elton John's old stuff. Kinda got "meh" with that Candle in the Wind and later stuff.

Billy may have been my favorite concert...all ages there and he was incredible. Saw him in 1999
