    Anita Baker
    Creed
    Jody Watley
    En Vogue
    Ozzfest ( 3 times)
    Linkin Park
    Korn
    Fear Factory
    Slipknot
    Orgy
    Macy Gray
    Black Eyed Peas
    Justin Timberlake
    Seal
    Marilyn Manson
    been to Iceland Airwaves twice(God know how many bands that were)
    Def Leppard
    Coldplay
    Bjork

    Man, to list em all, I'd be insane to try, just from when I started keeping the ticket stubs it's in the hundreds. So, some of the best based on spectacle, stage presence and musicianship:

    Arena shows:

    Janes Addiction, Rage Against the Machine, NIN....in that order the best large scale shows I have ever seen.

    Small Club shows:

    Sunny Day Real Estate is right up there, Rancid in the early days, My Morning Jacket blowing away the band they opened for, Buju Banton, Paul Westerberg.

    Dive bar shows:
    The French Kicks and The Walkmen

    I haven't seen many concerts, because I'm too lazy and all that, but I've seen a few.

    ~Armin Van Buren
    ~Pendulum
    ~Toots and the Maytals (I think some guy from The Wailers was with them as well)
    ~Of Montreal

    That's all I can think of, I've probably seen a whole lot more but my brain is shot to hell at the moment so I'll post again later.

    EDIT: I've seen Sting as well.

    DLK, old? No way, I'm just getting started! You've got some cool bands on your list for sure.

    I love music "out of the mainstream" in general, but especially rock and roll, from hard rock to alternative rock and classic rock.

    They need more REAL rock and roll bands these days!

    From the 90's, I do wish I could have seen certain other bands live though like Nirvana, Guns and Roses, Depeche Mode in their prime, the Smiths, Cure, and New Order, but always seemed to miss them when they came through where I was living at the time.

    Would take forever but Ive seen the following who are all allegedly dead now so probably never will again unless they reform with new peeps or the dead come out of hiding:
    Joy Division, The Ruts, the Clash, Alex Harvey, Big Country, The Skids and probably some others that I cant think of.

    I've been to a few more, but these four were really great, for various reasons:

    - Abyssinians
    - Wailers (sans Marley, but still great)
    - Motörhead
    - Shane MacGowan

    This reminds me of seeing the Joe Jackson Band about 5 years ago in tiny venue in London!

    It was the first time they had played together in over 20 years. The atmosphere at the gig was just amazing:)

    And this reminded me of other gigs where original bands reformed. Atmoshere is like no other gigs (I've been to thousands of gigs). Stand-out ones were:-
    Stiff Little Fingers in 1987
    Only Ones in 2007
    Television in 2005

    Loads of others, can't remember them now!

    Led Zeppelin? I'm jealous.

    Saw their cover band, "The White" once and they were great. I've seen LZ on TV and The White were better. But it's not the same.

    God, I know about 50 people that went to that exact show. I heard he was immense. Are you in the tri-state area by any chance?

    East Hampton? Damn, that's closer to my old stomping grounds of Hartford and New Haven than where I currently live. But yeah, it's in the middle of nowhere.

    You probably drive past my house every time literally, as I live some 20 yards from the Merritt Parkway-Hutchinson River Parkway connection and you can see my house from the road. That is, unless, you take 95, which is overrated because it's always congested.

    There's two of us, I think. NickH is from Wilton (or that's where I think he's from; he's seen me there because I play at Wilton HS in the summers), and NickC (me!) is from G-Town. Fairfield County has a strong representation on these boards.

    It's one of the only festivals I've never been to, and it's not that far away from me, amazed it's been going 12 years though!

    It's hard to believe the Astoria has gone:(

    Probably my favourite ever live venue, sound was always superb, and always great atmosphere upstairs or downstairs, gutted it's gone!

    A few of my favourites there were:-
    Flaming Lips
    Teenage Fanclub
    Fountains of Wayne
    Buffalo Tom
    Dinosaur Jr
    Waterboys
    Lemonheads

    And so many others:)
