This really stresses my memory, since I started going to concerts in 1969-and I'm sure that I'm leaving some out.
Jimmy Buffett (at least 15 times)
Neil Diamond (also very many times, second to Jimmy)
Barry Manilow (the real concert, not the current Vegas Show)
Loggins and Mecina
Brewer & Shipley
Doobie Brothers (Jim Croce was to perform, cancelled due to a cold, and died not long after)
Sergio Franki (Vegas showroom, not technically a concert, but no real difference)
Elton John (I was the paramedic providing coverage for the coliseum- didn't like the seat they gave me, and wandered around. Ended up watching him from back stage- it was pretty cool, and I wasn't told to leave until time for Elton to come backstage)
Steppenwolf (my very first concert, in Honolulu while on a nice trip, with Blue Cheer- bought the tickets the day of the show, sat in the 6th row, couldn't hear for a day afterwards)
And missing a concert that I really wanted to see, showed my new girlfriend (now wife) that I was very serious- I had managed to get front row tickets to see Bonnie Raitt at the Hard Rock Hotel in Vegas. I lived here in Vegas. she lived in Silicon Valley, and we would alternate weekends flying back and forth. She hurt her back, and wasn't able to fly to get here for the concert. I gave the tickets to a friend, and few to Silicon Valley to be with her. That pretty much sealed our relationship.

Front row for Bonnie Raitt...that'd be a mighty tough decision for me! I headed up her security force when she performed in Phoenix in 1985. What a talent!

Oooo....now I gotta think
The Gatlin Bro.s
Harry Connick Jr.
There a couple-few more but I can't think of 'em all right this
I will say one of my biggest disappointments was missing Jimmy Buffet's concert.....twice!

Lately...Trans-Siberian Orchestra - 3 years in a row. WoW!

...Heart - 1984 - Babe le Strange.
...Kiss - 1987 - Lick it up. (no Makeup).
I've seen Alabama, Reba, Trace Adkins, Clay Davidson, Sawyer Brown. Those were here at Ft. Sill, I was shanghaied by the wife. Not my type of show. Also have seen a battle of the band formatted show with local bands, was fun.
I didn't get out much in my teens.

I saw NIN in one of their first concerts, in very early 1990, when they opened for Peter Murphy. I had only heard of them because I worked at my college radio station, and we got a promo copy of Pretty Hate Machine...I was sold. Disco with attitude! Trent was so drunk at the show, he knocked his guitarist into the audience and destroyed the drum kit halfway through the show...good times! I saw them again six months later - headlining.

Oh, I also saw The Dead Milkmen (in Philly!), 7 Seconds, They Might Be Giants...and I'm sure I'm still forgetting some.
I also saw Soundgarden in mid 1991 playing the back stage of the Capital Theater in Olympia, WA. There were about 100 people there... Awesome.
A man fires a rifle for many years, and he goes to war. And afterward he turns the rifle in at the armory, and he believes he's finished with the rifle. But no matter what else he might do with his hands - love a woman, build a house, change his son's diaper - his hands remember the rifle.

I've been to probably about 150 concerts in my life for various bands. Mostly death/speed metal. Probably the only thing most here would recognize is Ozzfest. For about 4 years I lived in moshpits.

I love Joy Division! They are still my favorite band...I absolutely would go back in time for one night to see them play live.....pre-90's New Order was good, but Bernard Sumner is no Ian Curtis.

The Smiths was a great group too. Just remembered, I saw Seven Mary Three, an excellent Goth group called Mors Syphilitic (a few years back in NYC) and Spyro Gyra ( lot of years ago in PR).
I'm a big Killing Joke, Morcheeba, and Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds fan too....yet other groups I regret never seeing live.

Peter, Paul & Mary
Pete Seger (sp?)
I also made a Bob Hope Christmas show while I was in the military!
One of the Imperials went to my Church when I was a kid. They actually played at a church dance when they were getting started...... One of the benefits (maybe the only one) of spending some of my early years growing up in NYC.

Dang, I saw Rush, REO, BOC, Black Sabbath, Dio and Ozzy in the '70s and '80s. You must be near to a geezer, too.
