What concerts have you been to?
Curious as to what bands people have seen live. This is a partial list because a lot of the brain cells involved in concerts have long been killed off. I apologies in advance for some of the mistakes of my youth:

anyway, in no particular order (and with spelling errors), I've seen:

38 Special
Bangals (Susana Hoffs was HOT back in the 80s)
Bob Dylan
Tom Petty
The Who
Pink Floyd
Springsteen (several times - and growing up a town over from Freehold Bruce was a religion)
Triumph
Metallica (3 times I think)
Def Leppard
Whitesnake
Iron Maiden (I still have hearing loss from his one - even after 20 years)
AC/DC
Steve Winwood
Scorpians
Dokken
Guns & Roses (I'm actually in the Paradise City video - me and 80,000 of my closest friends)
Deep Purple
Aerosmith
George Thoroughgood
Counting Crows - few times
Mighty Mighty Bosstones
Elvis Costello
Van Halen

I've got more but I need to think about it.

Haven't been to a lot of concerts.. (Indy is in a weird location, big enough to draw a decent amount of acts, but too close to Chicago to draw everyone)

I've been to Projekt Revolution which had:
Linkin Park
Taking Back Sunday
H.I.M.
My Chem

and I attended the NIN/JA tour:
Street Sweeper Social Club
Nine Inch Nails
Jane's Addiction(original lineup)

The Moody Blues. That's it.

St. Hood and Rotten Sound.
Yes, I once liked Rotten Sound, but not very much anymore. They have a few good songs, and I love the singers voice, only Mieszko from Nasum would beat him. It's just too bad Mieszko died in Thailand because of the 2004 tsunami.

Correct me when I'm wrong.
Accept me or go to hell.

RE: What concerts have you been to?
For some reason that reminded me that I saw Bon Jovi. Maybe because Cinderalla was the opening act.

I never saw the James Gang but I did see Joe Walsh.

I'm jealous on Zeppelin.

RE: What concerts have you been to?
No J......you saw CHilliwack? twice? Now that just goes to prove you must be hell at music trivia!
Same goes for 10 cc and April Wine......you rock!
I dont' think I can name all the bands I'v seen, but start with Billy Joel in 1979 and go thru Judas Priest, Heaven and Hell, Motorhead reunion in 2008.
Many many many concerts. Glad I got to see some great ones before they died (DIO!)
I've even seen Chuck Berry! (and he's still alive!)

I missed Randy Rhoads when he was here with Ozzy. I liked Randy much better than Zak Wilde. I read and interview with Zak once where he stated his stance on religion and now I have no need for him or his music. He made up belief to suit how he lives his life and it flies in the face of every other belief.

I saw Ronnie James Dio only once, with Heaven and Hell.

I would have liked to have seen the original Black Sabbath line up.

I missed seeing Nightwish because I was working when they had their concert here.

Alice Cooper is an ultimate showman and definitely worth seeing. The "Welcome to My Nightmare" show was as good as a concert can get.
