What Was Your Favorite Concert at The Summit?

Appropriately, ZZ Top practically became the Summit's house band, playing the hall on almost every tour from the mid-'70s on and a few special events along the way like a Y2K bash New Year's Eve 1999 with Lynyrd Skynyrd(!). Home from Austin one Thanksgiving, I also remember sitting in the parking lot of the Clear Lake Best Buy, listening to a KLOL live broadcast in November 2003 of the final show of their "Beer Drinkers and Hell Raisers" tour - the very last concert in the Summit (sorry, Compaq Center) before it reopened as Lakewood Church.
Although the church began having services in the building a few weeks later, it took more than a year to finish the $75 million renovations, so that must have been some party. Now, the important question: What were some of your favorite shows at the Summit?
