Went to a Jimmy Eat World show last night, and they were really good live. Anyway, was trying to think of who I've been to see live, and who I've yet to see. Here is a partial list (will add to it as I think of them):

Rolling Stones
Metallica
Nine Inch Nails (x2)
Tool
Mudvayne (x2)
Rob Zombie (x2)
Staind (x2)
Foo Fighters
Evanescence
Jimmy Eat World
Our Lady Peace
Korn
Filter
A Perfect Circle
Matchbox 20
Stabbing Westward
Sevendust
Splender
Eve 6
Third Eye Blind
-----------------
Cowboy Mouth
Smashmouth
Train
Sponge
Orgy
Violent Femmes
Drowning Pool
Nonpoint
Papa Roach
Puddle of Mudd
P.O.D

Below the line are bands which I didn't remember until I went and checked the band list at some concerts I know I've attended. Mostly these are from the local Syracuse area Krockathon, which I attended annually for several years. There are probably two dozen or so more bands I saw at those shows, but I only included them in this list if I actually remember a song from them without difficulty. Being on my list doesn't mean I actually like the band, of course.

So now you guys share your lists...

My list is pretty short.

Disturbed
Killswitch Engage
Thornley
Ashes of Soma
Kim Mitchell
Chimaera
Finger Eleven
Leonard Cohen

Plus an assortment of local acts that nobody would have heard of. I missed out on seeing Scorpions, Rush, Cinderella and some more at this last Bayfest (got sick).

there's no way I'm going to be able to recount them all.

Well, however long my list is, I'm planning on adding Gogol Bordello to it on the 28th, and then Crystal Method on halloween.

Might also see Deadmau5 on the 7th.

I'd like to think I knew it at the time, but that was 11 years ago [Smile] . I only really am familiar with "Blister in the Sun", so I probably wouldn't consider myself a fan.

Even if you can't, might be fun to try. Partial lists are just fine.

Dave Matthews
Thievery Corporation
Ra Ra Riot
Invert
Widespread Panic
Phish
Stone Temple Pilots
No Doubt
Bare Naked Ladies
Coldplay
Rodrigo y Gabriela
Avett Brothers
Richie Havens
Third Eye Blind
Eve 6
Our Lady Peace
Incubus
Deftones
Janes Addiction
Audioslave
Jurrasic 5
Kings of Leon
The Music
Flaming Lips
String Cheese Incident
Modest Mouse
Ween
Galactic
Flight of the Conchords (they count!)
MMW
LCD Soundsystem
Ben Harper
Gogol Bordello
Gov't Mule
Allman Brothers
Ben Folds
lots more....

I'm seeing Gorillaz this weekend! Super psyched for that show.

It's a shame that that's the one song everyone knows (not that it's a bad song).

My list is comparatively short:

Bon Jovi
Goo Goo Dolls
Blue October
Snow Patrol
Okay Go
Dream Theater
Dio
Beck
Jack Johnson
Bowling for Soup

Of this group, I'd say Blue October and Bon Jovi put on the best shows. I mean that beyond preference for the music, but good engagement with the audience and all around showmanship.

I haven't the foggiest. I spent a couple years in college going to a different concert almost every weekend, so I certainly don't remember now.

It seems to be a common problem. I think just listing concerts you remember is sufficient for this threads' purposes. If none were memorable, then I probably wasn't interested in them anyway [Wink] .

Oh yeah! Prepare to danc like a crazy loon.

I can't list all the bands I've seen, it would take too long (not too bost, I just lived next door to the Brixton Academy for many years). This year so far (memorable, as in I can remember them):

Pearl Jam
Faith No More
Gogol Bordello
The Soundtrack of Our Lives
George Benson
Billy Bragg

... and I didn't go to see Joe Bonamassa last night and bitterly regret it...

Not bad for a Dad with two young kids. I have a very understanding wife.

Awesome. They're way better live than in the studio. The music washes over you in a way that even a great home setup just can't match.

I fell asleep at a Tool concert once. *reminisces*

I haven't listened the music concerts as opposed to musicals because I honestly can't remember. I enjoy the experiences, but it's like listing all the movies I've seen, or every party I have been to in the past year. They aren't stored in my long term memory.

Dashboard Confessional
Lit
Qurashi
The Strokes
Radiohead
Massive Attack

I've seen too many bands to list, but I must state that I saw The Smashing Pumpkins a few years ago. And rather wish I hadn't. Maybe it would've been better before Billy Corgan was a self-satisfied, smug half-shadow of what he formerly was. But I didn't want to listen to an hour and half long guitar jam accompanied by vocal bird calls. Thank you, Billy Corgan.
