Just curious if people are all that into going to concerts that much any more. I use to go all the time, but not that much in the past few years. It just seems to be to much of a hastle. Anyway here are some of the major bands that I have seen. I won't bother to list all of the opening or local bands as I could never remember them all.

The Cure x9
Duran Duran x2
VNV Nation x2
Icon of Coil
The Cranes
Covenant
And One
Sisters of Mercy
The Wake
Echo & the Bunnymen
Christian Death
Tom Jones
Corpus Delecti
Das Ich
Rosetta Stone
Razed In Black
London After Midnight
Switchblade Symphony
Siouxsie and the Banshees
Xymox
Sunshine Blind
Dinosaur Jr.
My Bloody Valentine
Danzig
Peter Murphy
Bauhaus
Marylin Manson
The Misfits
The Damned
Sepultura
Apoptygma Berzerk

And believe it or not one of my first concerts was Slayer, Megadeth, Anthrax and Alice in Chains on the Clash of the Titans tour. Now that was a whole different life ago.

Cool thread. Although I've not been to many myself, I will definitely enjoy seeing what concerts others here have gone to!

Cocteau Twins (3 times - my favorite :) )
Depeche Mode
Massive Attack
Dee - Lite
Tito Peunte (one of the best ever!)
Anne Lennox
The B-52's
Sweet Honey in the Rock
Sandra Bernhard (it's sorta music and comedy together in one act :) )

That's all I can think of right now.

Oh yeah, the Beach Boys twice

My list is rather short compared to yours The Ghost of Jonna. Here is that short list

Pearl Jam
Rush x 5
The Eagles
Fleetwood Mac
Def Leppard
ZZ Top
INXS/Cheap Trick
Bon Jovi
Journey/Foreigner
Toto with only one of the original
band members, but it was free!

The Horde (sp?) fest w/ Beck,
Neil Young, Toad the wet Sprocket,
and others

The World Series of rock w/ Great White
Bad English, Hurricane Alice, Skid Row,
and Whitesnake

Some B96 summer bash w/ Savage Garden
but I don't remember the rest of the groups,
because I was there with my ex-girlfriend, and
it was totally messed up, not the concert, but
being at a show with my ex, whom I was still in
love with.

Wow The Ghost of Jonna,

You're really showing your age...heh. I remember when Xymox used to be Clan of Xymox. I am envious that you were able to see Sisters of Mercy live.

Just last Sunday I was able to see Erasure here in Seattle. One of the best live concerts I've ever been to. They sound live exactly as they sound on their CD's.

One of my friends saw them (Erasure) in NY a few weeks ago and said the same thing. Sisters of Mercy were not that great live but perhaps it was just that the sound was horrible when I saw them at Roseland in NY. They did do a decent cover of Wish You Were Here by Pink Floyd though.:D

Damn, now I'm surprised. The Cramps!?! I haven't listened to them in years. They're the kind of band that you like even though they are really crass and musically attrocious. It is like if you took Devo, fed them mass amounts of heroin and then locked them in a basement for several years. Teenage Goo Goo Muck rocks! :D

Little Rock doesn't attract that many good acts, go figure :rolleyes:

But the ones that have been through here in the past 12 years or so that I deemed worthy to see were:

Ozzy's "no more tours" show:rolleyes: w/ Alice in Chains in 93. and Motorhead too. :D Ozzy threw some water on us. I was worried he'd peed in it.

Foo Fighters w/ Red Hot Chili Peppers

Metallica when they did that Black Album tour or whatever.

Ah, the butt-rock years! Warrant, Trixter, and Firehouse, no less. Don't know how I got dragged to that one.


And here's the one to remember: My mom made me go with my stepsisters to New Kids On The Block. Whoa oh oh oh oh, Whoa oh oh oh.....The Right Stuff! Safe to say they weren't one of the worthy I previously mentioned. Hell on Earth.

Well, they do live here in LA ... in Glendale I think. They drag themselves out once in a while for the odd New Years or Halloween show. Your "locked them in a basement" joke is quite funny because to my knowledge they tend to hide out at home a lot watching old horror movies.

As for Devo ... I've had friends see various members at places like the grocery store, etc. (Hard to imagine Mark Mothersbaugh shopping for corn flakes ... well, maybe not.)

1st concert i was ever at was jefferson airplane, it was a free show at the central park bandshell in nyc spring 1967:eek: i was seven, and bike riding with dad through the park. we stopped and enjoyed the whole show

1st show i paid to see was yes at madison square garden, 1972 the close to the edge tour

two weeks later it was the stones at the garden for the exile on mainstreet tour. of all the stones shows i have seen through the years, this was the most satisfying, all subsequent rolling stones tours, felt like they were more of a parody of what the stone once were. worst stones show i ever saw, was 1977 at the old jfk stadium in philly for the some girls tour. it rained the entire show, mick spent the show hiding behind his guitar (like i really go to a stone's show for jaggers guitar mastery:rolleyes: ), and they only played for about an hour...no encore....a total rip off

bowie as ziggy stardust with the spiders from mars also played the garden in 72, bowie in all his short lived glam glory!

1973 was a great year for shows, my favorite as i recall was mott the hoople with queen opening up for em at the uris theater, june of 73. excellent show

elton john at the academy of music (later to become the palladium), he was showcasing don't shoot me i'm only the piano player and goodbye yellow brick road at that time. he did a 20 or so minute rendition of burn down the mission, which is still one of my favorite concert moments of all time! the only other time i saw elton was in 74 on the caribou tour, great show as well, but not quite as good as the 73 show, mainly cause he had dropped burn down the mission from his rep by then :(

pink floyd also played the academy of music in the fall of 73 doing dark side of the moon start to finish, as an encore one of the songs they did was see emily play, the only time i ever saw floyd perform a syd barret tune. (caught them in 75 as well on the wish you were here tour, after doing all of wyh, they came back and did all of darkside as an encore) cuaght them as well in 79 at the la forum perfoming the wall, drove 18 hours straight from olympia washington, got to the show about 10 minutes before it started, then turned right around afterwards, and drove the 18 hours back to oly.....whew!

other standout shows of 73 was the allman brothers at watkins glen, a big outdoor affair, duane of course had already passed on, but barry oakly was still on base.

the kinks performing preservation at the academy, a very fun show, i also caught them the following year at the beacon theater performing soap opera. last time i saw the kinks was back at the beacon theater in 89', the magic by then had been long gone :(

in the fall of 73, caught a bunch of shows at a place in roslyn long island, called my fathers place, saw billy joel there on his street life sernade tour, caught him again in 75 at the westchester priemier theater on the turnstiles tour, bruce springsteen again at my fathers place, this was his the wild and innocence e-street shuffle tour. great version of rosalita! my 1st introduction to what would several years later consume my life, punk music was also had at my fathers place in the form of the new york dolls. some friends of mine had seen them at max's kansas city, and dragged my butt out to li to catch them there.....wow!

73 was definately a great year for shows

74 saw lou reed for the 1st of many times at the the academy, with steve hunter on guitar, a very different sound for lou's tunes, that's fer dayum sure. through the years, i've prolly seen lou reed more than anyone else, have never been disapointed by lou! :) favorite lou show would be a toss up between the street hassle tour in 78 at the bottom line in nyc, or the 88 beacon theater new york tour. both shows were amazing.

saw the who this year at madison square garden doing quadrophenia, lynyrd skynyrd opened up. i only saw kieth moon twice, this show, and the show in 76 for the who by numbers tour. unfortunately, in 76, moon had collapsed on stage two nights before the garden show in boston, and when they played the garden, it was a very shortened show, and moon had these enormous fans surrounding him, blowing cold air on him throughout the show. the fans obscured his view. not a good show at all. caught the who several more times down the road, in 79 at the garden for their comeback show featuring kenny jones on drums for the 1st time, and then a few years later in 82 at shea stadium, where david johannsen and the clash opend up for em.

speakin' of the clash, the only other time i saw them was at bonds dico in new york in 79. great show.

later on in 74 i caught stevie wonder at the garden with bob marley as the opening act. amazing night of music.

by 75, i was finding myself down at either cbgb's or max's kansas city quite a bit, punk had taken hold, and most nights there would be a triple billings featuring the likes of the ramones, televsion, richard hell and the voidoids, talking heads, patti smith, the vibrators, nervous wrecks, blondie and such. a great time to be a tennager in nyc!

i could go on and on, but i have to get back to work, so this is where it will have to end for now.

one last note,

the last big arena show i ever saw, was neil young and crazy horse in 91 at the garden, sonic youth opened up for em, through the years i had seen niel a few times, sometimes you got a good show (rust never sleeps tour 78), sometime ya got a crummy show (stills young in central park 76), but that tour in 91 was amazing, also was the loudest #$%^&*&^%$ show i ever been too! :)

and the last show i've seen was almost 10 years ago, bryan ferry at the sunrise musical theater in fort lauderdale. with kids and such, plus the average cost of shows these days, doesn't make concert going a top prioirtiy of mine.

04-02-2003, 08:31 PM
I was thinking...

I actually saw Pink Floyd twice on the Division Bell tour. The first time we saw them was while they were rehearsing. Floyd was practicing at Norton AFB (now San Bernadino Airport). It was just before the base closed, but all the planes were gone. Anyway, they set up in an unused hangar. They let a bunch of military guys come watch. It was pretty cool.

Later, we went to see them in San Diego

(Sung to Guyute by Phish, of course)

I have seen the following shows live:

Rush (1x)

The Grateful Dead (1X)

Ani DiFranco (1X)

Public Enemy, Digital Underground, Heavy D, Kid 'N' Play...
they were all on one ticket...

Bel Biv Devoe (1X Smoothed out on the R&B tip with a pop feel appeal...to it.)

Phish (a bunch) best live shows i've seen

Cheap Trick (hometown guys, my mom dated the basist in High School)

The Roots with Cody Chestnut (1X)

Alice Cooper (1x)

...And I don't know if this counts, but the bassist from Survivor played at my buddies wedding...it was an eye of the tiger moment in time...

pretty pathetic list, somehow i always hear about the great shows coming through about three days after they did...:(

WHAT?!?!? Nobody's seen LOVERBOY in concert?!?! :rolleyes: Oh yeah...me. But I was like 10 at the time and my sister got free tickets from a roadie who hit on her while she waitressing and she took me along. It was the "Lovin' Every Minute of it Tour"... :rolleyes:

Then there was the time my mom took me to see Kenny Loggins at the county fairgrounds in the mid 80's!

I went to Janet Jackson in '93 with my boss, his wife, and my girlfriend at the time, but she and I got into a fight and spent a majority of the concert out in the lobby fighting.

I also caught a Van Hagar concert in '94.

My last concert was Jon Michael Montgomery (when I was in my country music phase) back in '95.

Not to mention quite a few summer fair concerts with Aretha Franklin and the Charlie Daniels band. :rolleyes:

I just don't dig live music all that much. Too loud. Too many people. Too much standing. Too much alcohol. Live concerts do nothing for me.

04-02-2003, 11:51 PM
That's what I love about Live music, it is loud, there are lots of people, and theirs alcohol! The only thing that I don't like is the price of a concert t-shirt, so I just quit buying them. Funny thing was, though my early high school years, when my dad was listening to Ted Nugent and Boston, I would tell him to turn it down, and that it was to loud. I was basically a talk radio person. Then a friend had me listen to Tom Sawyer by Rush, and I was hooked. Rush was the first major concert I went to, and I won the tickets from a Chicago radio station. Now I love going to concerts ,when I can afford to take the day off and go!

Hey... don't ever knock a person's musical tastes. Music is a really personal statement and, apparently, if you connected with something the artist sang or whatever and it affected you and is a part of you. Hopefully you don't like music or an artist just because they are "cool" or it's what everybody else likes... :cool:

Not getting on a soapbox here as I've taken my lumps for the people I like to listen to... :rolleyes: but just for future reference. This is something I learnt VERY quickly when I was working for a music store back in the 80s...

Still... I LOVE Olivia and got a chance to meet her last summer. Very sweet lady. As for Sam Fox... I may be g-a-y, but I still like a good looking girlie with a great rack! :)

"Xanadu" is, while one of the worst musicals every written, one of my favourite guilty pleasures. It is, in my opinion, not so much a movie as it is a great music video! The songs are great... ELO is always awesome... and the effects are amazing for their time and Olivia is PERFECT! :kiss: :happy:

I'm not a big fan of live music, I don't love crowds and I prefer polish to energy most of the time. That said, here are the acts I've seen live:

- Dick Dale
- Weird Al
- Guns n Roses (opening for...)
- Rolling Stones

That's all I can think of right now, but I get the nagging feeling I've seen more.

Dick Dale ROCKS! Not only is he a guitar sensation but his music is world renowned(sp?) on "this" ride called Space Mountain at Disneyland, the Happiest Place on Earth :) I love that piece! Not to mention the rest of his music!

I probably shouldn't mention this here, but I went and saw Barry Manilow in concert about a year or so ago. My girlfriend at that time was a big Barry Manilow fan, so I bought her a pair of tickets to his show. In return, she bought me a "Got Barry" t-shirt, which works, because I'm Barry too!

Did you see her lifetime achievement award (presented by Steven Tyler) at the Billboard Awards in December ?
She wore one of her craziest costumes and announced that she couldn't decide which Cher to be that night. :D
She also had some flavorful words for her longtime critics. ;)

An older lady that i work with is going to a Cher concert (well it already might have happened or its coming up) and she was telling me how she waited overnight and got some pretty good tickets and was going to sell them on ebay and is hoping to get close to a thousand for them. I never thought people would pay that much to see her. But her concert did look kind of cool.

A few years ago, my boss' mother and her friends bought tickets to a concert. I think they were all in their mid to late 60s. They thought they were going to see Glen Miller. Instead, they saw Steve Miller. They didn't stay very long. Aparently they read their tickets wrong.

And, I do have a little less respect for bobafrett knowing that he went to a Barry Manilow concert.:crazed:;)

I've only been to a handful of concerts in my lifetime.

Billy Joel
Elton John

Then Billy & Elton together in March of this year

Beach Boys
Franki Valli & The Four Seasons

The last two were quite by accident. You paid for a Buffalo Bisons AAA Baseball ticket and you got to see the show. I was only about 10-11 at the time and stayed because of my parents.

I have passed up a lot of great concerts lately, especially for someone like me who's music tastes have changed over the past two years. A local Oldies station in Buffalo has been bringing in some wayback acts as of late, the Turtles, the Association, Martha and the Vandellas, The Four Tops & The Temptations together, the Classics IV, the Buckinghams, Grass Roots, and a couple more that I have been meaning to go. Granted a lot of the acts contain one or two original members (the rest are probably dead) but they do put on great shows (I heard the Four Tops & Temps rocked).

In addition, I had tickets to go see Rush back in 97' but could not make it because of work obligations, I had a few friends renege on their offers to go to a Bob Dylan concert last summer, and I have been offered to have my ticket paid for by my brother, if I go to see Pearl Jam with him (they come very soon) but have since declined.
