Lighters in the Sky: The Greatest Concerts of All-Time

Please check out this new page and share with Corbin your favorite concerts of all time. We're looking forward to seeing his book. Enjoy!

Hey everyone, this is Corbin Reiff. I'd like to welcome you to the official page for my upcoming book ‘Lighters in the Sky: A Year-By-Year Chronicle of the Greatest Concerts of All-Time.’ I’m still hard at work writing at the moment but I really wanted to open up a space where I could engage with all of you about music, concerts, share articles, bootlegs, video clips, and maintain an open and heartfelt conversation ahead of time about all of our favorite bands and artists. I want to hear your stories about some of the greatest music performances that you’ve seen in person, and I want to know more about the ones you wish you could have attended and why.

The goal of the book is to break down the single-greatest concerts for every year going all the way back to 1960 leading right up to the present day. Each chapter will chronicle one individual show from each year, break down what made it so special, add a little bit of historical context, and make the case for why it wasn’t to have be missed. Naturally there’s a lot of subjection when it comes to evaluating artists and performances and I look forward to getting into it with all about my picks. Agree/disagree, I look forward to the conversation.

Please like, share, and spread the word around to as many people you know about this space so we can get things really going!

In the meantime, here’s a clip of Led Zeppelin performing “Stairway to Heaven” at Madison Square Garden in 1973.
