I have only been to one concert, was really good though, in a hotel ballroom, not a ton of people, seats etc. Sound was good too
Band was Cecilio & Kapono they are a local group but you might have heard of them, they have quite a few good songs.

Holy Smokes! They go back a long way (But then, so do I ). I Remember playing their stuff when I was a disc jockey 30 years ago. I just checked and I have their first two albums, "Cecelio & Kapono," 1974, and "Elua," 1975. On vinyl, of course.

I'm a bit older so...
Atlanta Rythm Section
I'm forgetting a bunch. I used to do a lot of camera work, so I was on stage with ZZ Top and Atlanta Rythm Section. The guitarist for ARS was so huge that his fingers looked like sausages. I don't know how he could could play only one note at a time, but his fingers were lightning. Strangest and one of the most impressive things I've ever seen.
Andres Segovia was about 80 when I saw him. He entered from stage left and it took about a full minute for him to just make it to his stool. As soon as he touched his guitar the years vanished and when he played it was like watching a god. For all the time we spend listening to our systems it is important to remember that the real magic is live.

That list is pretty huge, Monstermile - DO you keep a tally going?
I was in a fraternity in College taht was pretty into having bands. So, about 3 times every two months, we'd get live acts into the house - varying from glorified garage bands (my own - I sing and play guitar) to bands like Fighting Gravity, Guster, Kid Rock (before he was known as Kid Rock - it was wierd, he had this little person with him on stage...little did we know this white guy woudl become so huge). It was a really great time. Huge sound from a live band is really incomparable.
Here are some highlights:
Led Zeppelin (Plant/Page) 7th Row!
Clapton (blue tour)
Aerosmith (Steven Tyler has more energy than any performer I've ever seen!)
Dave Matthews countless times. Went to his Second cd release party (attended school in Charlottesville, where he had his roots - when he was still abig nobody!)
Guns n. Roses/Mettalica
David Gray - front row - one of teh best shows I've ever seen.

Also, although I am retiscent to mention it (Hey...the tickets were FREE ): Cher
I'm sure there are others that I do not remember right now.

Damn, who else have I forgotten ?

shareholder in the making
Metallica-4x (best the first time - tour Cunning Stunts came from)
Korn-2x (not by choice-they sucked.)
System of a Down (see above)
Mudvayne (bad sound system, couldn't tell whether they sucked or not)
Powerman 5000 (sucked)
Kid Rock (surprisingly entertaining)
Limp Bizkit (sucky suck suck suck suck, bunch o' jerks)
Linkin Park (vaguely ok)
Jerry Cantrell (good, but his keyboardist was really, really drunk or something-kept throwing the keyboard around the stage.)
Days of the New (near the end of their careers. They were better on the albums.)
Sting - Fantastico!
K. D. Lang opened for him. Not exactly memorable.
Rush - amazing!
Bela Fleck and the Flecktones - also amazing!
Dave Brubeck 2x (need I say more?)
Sonos Handbell Ensemble 2x (see them if you can; great stuff)
Blues Traveler - pretty good.
Michael Franti & Spearhead opened for BT. (Oh god, why won't he stop playing?! I swear, he played longer than Blues Traveler. Oh, the humanity!)
Billy Idol (great show. He threw a mike into the crowd and kicked over a box fan! Ah, that 80s anger!)
Sweet Honey in the Rock - 2x. Sublime.
Crosby Stills Nash and Young- great show. Young dominated a bit much, but...
Simon and Garfunkle. Yes, they still can't stand each other. Other than that, pretty good show.
