I saw Aerosmith and the Black Crowes at Alpine Valley, many moons ago. Great venue. Traffic was a nightmare. Sadly, I will always associate the place with the loss of SRV.

Two that did not make the list: Soo Pass Ranch - Detroit Lakes, MN. Home of one of the premiere country music festivals in America. In fact, the 2013 'WeFest' just wrapped up last night. Three day event, with crowds of 50,000 per day. A massive bowl, in the heart of prairie lake country.

Another one is Moondance - Walker, MN - home of the Moondance Jam. This venue is in the Chippewa National Forest...just about 75 miles from Soo Pass Ranch, on the shore of massive Leech Lake. A bit smaller (about 20k) but a truly fantastic setting and venue. One of the best in the country.
