Wow, ppl really get out sometimes hehe

Few that come to mind:

Nine Inch Nails - By far the best concert experience I've been to

KMFDM - my most fav bad ever! So of course they rocked (and they certainly did!) - PROOF!

Godsmack - Before they got popular (hell I went with someone else, didn't even know who they were), pretty aproachable guys too

Gravity Kills


Ice Cube - years ago, my rap phase

Here's my list:

copy verbatim the top section of kcarlile's post (starting with Metallica and ending with Days of the New)

Also, in no particular order:

Metallica (acoustic)
Bela Fleck and the Flecktones x2
David Brubeck
McCoy Tyner w/Stanley Clarke (WOW!)
Charlie Parker w/Norah Jones (WOW!)
Pearl Jam (acoustic)
R.E.M. (acoustic)
Ben Harper (acoustic)
Ben Harper and the Innocent Criminals x2
Dave Matthews Band (acoustic)
Blues Traveler (acoustic)
Smashing Pumpkins (acoustic)
Alanis Morissette (acoustic)
Neil Young (acoustic)
Joe Satriani
Body Count
G. Love and Special Sauce
Josh Ritter
Paul Pena (amazing! mixes the Blues with Tuvan throat singing)

The ones I noted as acoustic were seen at a couple Bridge School Benefit concerts.
I can explain it to you but I can't understand it for you.

Besides concerts I've worked:
Arena shows: Iron Maiden (1988 - Somewhere in Time tour), Metallica (1986 - Master of Puppets, 1992 - Black Album), Cheap Trick (1988?)

Club shows (in no order whatsoever): Bif Naked, Age of Electric, Ballroom Zombies, the Harlots, X-Engine-X, Loco, Forgotten Rebels, Needlefish, Inward Eye, the Farrell Bros., Kim Wright, Redd Kross, Doughboys, Misfits, Gingersnap, SNFU, Global Genocide, Negation, Nasty Teeth, Liberty Lives Upstairs, Voice of Treason, Artificial Life... and some of the worst opening bands ever (Stungun/The Jills, Faust, Nemo etc)

That covers it give or take...

Boy do I need to go to more concerts!

U2 (3x - all incredible)
Béla Fleck & The Flecktones (the most fun concert I've been to)
Metallica - nice show, but the new songs paled live
Mudvayne (same concert as Ken - they sucked big time, and it wasn't just the sound system)
Linkin Park - ditto the vaguely ok
Limp Bizkit - I can't believe some of my money went to these guys
Cake - was alright, the singer seemed a little arrogant

And some barefoot Brazilian multi-instrumentalist new age jazz musician who was a little too new-agey (a quote: "you know, we're all like hair, growing in different directions" ). Peter saw her too, but apparently didn't think she counted.

I'm young and poor so I've only seen:

Jack Johnson
Ben Harper and the Innocent Criminals
Hed P.E.
Breaking Benjamin

Monstermile, I didn't see one of the best bands of all time on your list, Queen!

And what was your favorite concert? My dad constantly raves about the Kiss concerts and how todays acts suck by comparison...

Wow, I feel very sheltered

Rolling Stones
Fun Loving Criminals
Alanis Morisette (before you start laughing it was for OLP)
Our Lady Peace 2x
Big Wreck 3x
The Watchmen
Pearl Jam (great show despite Eddie's political rantings)
The Headstones
Nickleback (wish I hadn't wasted the money)
Default (ditto Nickleback comments)
The Tea Party
The Smashing Pumpkins
The Tragically Hip (any Canucks out there that haven't seen them???)

There's plenty of others in here I'm forgetting. Saturday night I'm going to check out the Pixies, and this is probably as excited as I've been to see a concert in a while.

Bela Fleck is pretty awesome live, isn't he? Very polished. I saw him before I became a fan. I never thought that music without words could have such popular appeal!

Sting was great - but his show was short.

You know what shows I really loved? The Lillith Fair shows were awesome! Lesbians a-plenty, a few straight chicks and me and my buddy - what can I say, I like chick rock! Those were fun shows. And Sarah Maclachlan has to be one of the best live performers I have ever seen. (Forgot about this tour)

Don't forget Wu Tang Clan & Rage Against athe Machine. Talk abotu angry white kids and angry black kids mixing for some good old mosh-pit fun. It was a surreal experience to say teh least.
