Well, although not a band, I did see Ronald Reagan give a speech in 1988.

About 10 years back I went to see a Bill Cosby stand-up show and sat in the front row -- just about 4 or 5 meters away from him. After leaving the show, we found ourselves behind his limo. Surprisingly he pulled into Dairy Queen (I assume to get a pudding pop perhaps).

As for bands, I haven't seen a whole lot - Primus, Green Day, Tom Petty, U2 (Sydney) are among my fav's.

AC DC - both with Bon Scott and Brian Johnson

Rush - 2 times
Ozzy - with Randy Rhoads

Quiet Riot

There's been many others but these are the ones that quickly come to mind

Re-reading the posts, I realise I forgot Thin Lizzy (80s with Gary Moore) and
Rush (late seventies), twice. All my mates really liked them and about 10 minutes into the second gig I thought, "now I remember why I never wanted to see this lot again..."

Acts I'd like to have seen - some of whom I still might

Hendrix, of course
Rage Against The Machine
Dizzy Gillespie (had tickets for a gig in London but he died)
The ULTIMATE gig of all time - Parliament, mothership tour 1975. If I had a time machine I'd go to every gig on that tour. More than once.
Miles, of course
Charlie Hunter
Disposable Heroes of HipHoprisy
Michael Franti
Les Paul
Lenny Breau
Frank Zappa (saw him twice. That's not nearly enough. I had bad luck with his gigs - one night I was on my way up with some friends and we heard he'd cancelled on the car radio: another time we got to the Hammersmith Odeon to find that my friend, who had bought the tickets, ahd forgotten them...)
James Morrisson (the Australian multi-instrumentalist, not the Lizard King or the lacklustre singer)
GWAR (not for the music, I'm afraid)

And probably many more

Paul McCartney and wings
The Eagles
Pink Floyd

Marshal Tucker Band
The Alman Brothers
Simon and Garfunkel(last tour together
Bruce Springstein
The Stray Cats
Adam Ant
The Producers
Vice Gill/Amy Grant

Can't remember any more! The best was Pink Floyd when Roger Waters was with them!!

posted on Jan, 28 2009 @ 12:00 PM
Here are a few more.

How could I have forgotten The Rolling Stones ?
...maybe because Jagger was already looking like Don Knotts

Paul McCartney
Styx - before the Mr Roboto fiasco

Hall and Oates - OK, so shoot me, I had a girlfriend that loved them
Barry Manilow - OK OK, shoot me twice, same as above reason.

I know there are still a few more.
( be continued)

I've only ever been to one big concert, because I live so far out in the country I can't get to any of the big cities easily.

For my 21st birthday I was sent to see a show with my best mate in Newcastle, Australia.

We saw Behind Crimson Eyes, Altarbridge, P.O.D. and Disturbed.

Was literally the best night of my life. I had never experienced anything like it before. I couldn't speak for days because of all the screaming and excitement.

This is the opening of that show. Glad someone recorded it.

He gets brought out in asylum gear

I've seen lots of bands play live. Mostly metal bands.


Iron Maiden ( Dio and Motorhead were there as well. Dio was awesome. Can't say I cared much for Motorhead though. Maiden kicked some serious ass!!! By far one of the greatest metal bands of all time!!! )

Cannibal Corpse
Morbid Angel
Suicidal Tendencies

Cradle of Filth (Also had the pleasure of meeting them. Twice. )

Iced Earth
Children of Bodom

King Diamond ( This was about ten years ago. I was playing guitar in a local band at that time and we were able to score ourselves a spot as one of the opening bands. Needless to say, I got to see that show for free. And free beer all night too. Good times. )


The Trans-Siberian Orchestra ( A Christmas concert. They performed their album "Christmas Eve and Other Stories". A bit different from what I'm used to but very, VERY enjoyable. A stunning and most excellent performance. )

Dream Theater
Paradise Lost
Lacuna Coil

Some bands that I have not yet seen in concert but really want to:

Amon Amarth
November's Doom
Dimmu Borgir

Some bands that I would pay any price to see in concert but will never get to because they're not around anymore :

Celtic Frost

Oasis 4 times (each time amazing)

my personal Oasis favourite - Masterolan:

East17 (i was 15 i think), was good though.

Lots of others at road shows ect.
Strange though, I've only ever wanted to go to Glastonbury (festival, I've been to the town before, love it very mystical) and yet i never have. No, one wants to go with me - must be the muddy fileds that puts them off. Tried to get tickets last year but had sold out

I've only ever seen 1 band live.

That was The Who,last year at Wembly Arena. I only went cos my mates said they'd come to a rave with me if i wentto a concert with them. (they've still not been shape throwing with me,bleedin lightweights)

Might be going to see the Prodigy on their new album tour in the spring,as they're a group I've been meaning to see live.

Seen a billion and 1 live techno/acid techno/hardcore/gabba acts. Favourite being DDR every time. He knows how to tweak them knobs

Not wanting to sound like an auld fart but Glastonbury is not what it used to be.
Commercialism seems to take precedence nowadays, I would have loved to have gone when it was a free festival etc.
I was hoping to do V and Beautiful Days this year but may not get to either of them due to work commitments and other social outings.

I always wanted to go to Tribal Gathering but never got round to it i'm afraid.

Have been to a few festivals though, both large and small.

One of my favourites was Phoenix 96

And my favourite band of all time playing my favourite song;

So many very good memories.

I've also seen Oasis a few times and they are very good live, coincedentally I also think Masterplan is possibly their best song.
I saw Noel Gallagher do an acoustic set supporting Paul Weller once and he was absolutely fantastic but regrettably despite being constantly urged to he refused to play Masterplan.
I had excellent seats at Newcastle City Hall and was fortunate to be able to watch Gallagher in the wings throughout Weller's set; he drank several can's of lager, smoked a packet of Benson's and danced like a lunatic non-stop.
Weller, as always, was great.

I will always go to live concerts but unfortunately due to other commitments and the lack of decent venues I won't get to see as many as I used to.
A shame.

Hmmm...last gig i saw was in Dubai Hard Rock cafe. indie bands called Crimson Debacle. they rocked the stadium! I'm not really into indie bands but they were screamo! Totally loved their drummer! Didn't expect a backflip from a girl drummer but she did. :|

Saw Green Day last night, was amazing.

Billie Joe had the audience in the palm of his hand.

The Bravery opened for them...they were ok.

Next on the list a bit of a diversion.. Rob Thomas
