    It was a good show. A southern rock-ish band called Rivers & Rust opened, then Counting Crows, then Matchbox 20.

    ok, cool. yeah, I was thinking Matchbox 20 was getting top billing, they feel pretty equal to me and I actually prefer Counting Crows.

    Went and saw Offspring and Sublime With Rome on Friday night. 'Twas a good time.

    Chalk up RHCP for me. I don't care if it costs me points to the Good Place, that was fun.
  • Pat Benatar and Toto last night...very tight show with zero filler songs.

    I saw them open for the B-52s on NYE a million years ago, and both were awesome. :)
  • Oh yeah, I added A7X and Metallica last month. A7X put on a great show, but Metallica was such a freaking over-the-top super show that I practically forgot about A7Xs performance.

    Metallica was that good. I was never a huge fan, but i am so glad I snagged those tickets the minute they went on sale. I'm a big fan now.

    I get to add In This Moment to my list in November :D Oh, and Nightwish next April (again)
  • Poison concert at Pier Six Pavilion in Baltimore, Maryland to promote their new album Hollyweird (2002). These are the bands:
    • Poison
    • Cinderella
    • Faster Pussycat
    • Aerosmith
    I can't find any information online about that particular event, but I do remember that it was in 2002 or 2003 . My brother and I went to donate blood at an American Red Cross blood drive sponsored by WIYY 98 Rock 97.9 FM (back when the station was good) at Eastpoint Movies 10 (now called Flagship Cinemas). I donated blood and didn't win anything in the raffle that great. My brother won 2 "POISON TIX" after he got deferred because they couldn't get to the small veins in either arm. And since my brother didn't have a girlfriend at the time, he said I could go with him. Our seating was in the very back (lawn seating). It was fun... and LOUD! :D

    Sadly, my brother took his own life March 24, 2004. He was battling a mental disorder called Obsessive–Compulsive Disorder (OCD). He would've turned 19 in June of 2004.

    Just saw Foster the People tonight, adding one more to the list. Fantastic show - they played a decently-sized set at about 20 songs, covering all 3 of their albums, as well as a cover of Ramones' "Blitzkrieg Bop" and a short instrumental jam of New Order's "Blue Monday".
  • TheStuddzTheStuddz Lil Rascal
    I was supposed to go see Tom Petty & the Heartbreakers this past summer. My friends dropped out on me, and I never did make it to the show. Now I'll never get to add him to my list.

    RIP Tom. I'm extremely pissed at my friends today.

    Just saw The Flaming Lips last night. I only knew like 3 of their songs and didn't expect to be entertained as this was a gift for my wife's step father and I was only going "along for the ride."

    Never again will I judge. Wow, they put on one hell of a show and their rendition of Bowie's "Space Oddity" was amazing.

    Felt the same way when I saw them! Only song I knew at the time was Yoshimi from Rock Band 3, they put on a hell of a concert. Lead singer pulled out some giant foam hands and used them to shoot lasers at a disco ball at one point while a giant screen with a naked orange lady banging a ride cymbal looped in the background. Super trippy stuff.

    Saw Foo Fighters last Monday. I’d spent most of the concert looking forward to Everlong and Dave Grohl made a big deal before the encore about how they were only going to play three songs. They opened with a song off the newest album (I think it was called Dirty Water) and then went into an extended cover of Tom Petty’s Breakdown. I was so sure that the third song was going to be Everlong and but then Dave Grohl introduced the next song as one off the first album, and they started playing This Is A Call.

    They ended up playing Everlong as the fourth and final song of the encore anyways. On some level I respect Dave Grohl for trolling us into thinking he wasn’t going to play Everlong.

    One of the festivals in my city just unveiled their lineup (for November), and let's just say I'm f-ing excited.

    /huge image snip/

    If everything goes according to plan, I'd be adding Foo Fighters, Green Day, Grouplove and Phoenix to my list. (Plus Cage the Elephant, which definitely should be in Rock Band.)

    So I guess it's about time I updated my list no? Indeed I ended up seeing those 5 artists when I went to the festival. Foo Fighters and Green Day were awesome as expected, but Grouplove really surprised me, I think they might have been my favorite band on the show! (It helps that we ended up super close to the stage because of luck).

    Also, I haven't updated my list with artists who have debuted in Rock Band after I saw them live, so that includes Of Monsters and Men, Capital Cities, and Vanilla Ice (he played two songs as a surprise guest on a festival :joy: )

    So, updated list:
    • Metallica
    • Alabama Shakes
    • Smash Mouth
    • Serj Tankian
    • Panic! At the Disco
    • Fall Out Boy
    • AFI
    • Foster the People
    • Juanes
    • Vanilla Ice
    • Garbage
    • Imagine Dragons
    • Young the Giant
    • Capital Cities
    • Coldplay
    • Of Monsters and Men
    • Foo Fighters
    • Grouplove
    • Phoenix
    • Green Day
    Plus bonus Brandon Flowers playing The Killers songs (and Serj Tankian playing "Aerials").

    And apparently festivals in Mexico have decided to be really good again, so in the first half of 2018 I already have tickets for two different festivals, where if everything goes correctly I'll be seeing:
    • Queens of the Stone Age
    • Gorillaz
    • Franz Ferdinand
    • Muse
    My wallet hates me but it'll be fun :joy:

  • Man I am so happy to add Paul McCartney to my own personal list!
  • Next fall will be adding Journey to the list!
  • LordFlatusLordFlatus Rising Star
    I'm supposed to be adding Puddle of Mud to the list tomorrow night at the Whiskey A-Go-Go, but my wife is bailing on the small Hollywood club scene so it seems like we won't be going. :(

    I saw War this past weekend. They put on an awesome show. Only one original member, Lonnie Jordan (who proudly stated he was turning 70 this year), but the band was tight and very interactive with the audience. Now I want Cisco Kid, Slippin into Darkness, Why Can't We Be Friends and Baby Brother for DLC!

    Seeing some of your lists... I need to get out more!
    Korn (1st Concert)

    Def Leppard
    Slayer
    Tom Petty
    RUSH
    The Eagles
    RHCP
    Deftones

    Cheap Trick
    probably more, but can't recall

    Few Country acts, but not into that music so I forget who it was and hard to keep track of them at (SummerFest)
  • BachiGBachiG Inconceivable...
    My list:

    • Richie Guts (when he was in The Clash)
    • Rhonda-Ann (before she was famous and started going by Avril Lavigne)
    • Bogart Dave (before Gn’R replaced him with Axle Rose)
    • Felony (Tina Turner’s half-sister)
    • Ragnar (back in the very early days of Kiss when they had 5 members)
    • Trisha (she played in a Cindi Lauper cover band)
    • Declan (little known fact that this is the name Lenny Kravitz goes by incognito)
    • Chase (Dragonforce’s substitute guitarist when Herman Li is out supporting Babymetal)
    • Count Dmitri (the original “twin” before his brother Thomas Bailey took his spot in The Thompson Twins)
    •Proper Alan (touring musician with The Doobie Brothers)
    ...and finally
    • Barnabus Mudflaps (hidden member of The Greatful Dead).
  • I'm not a music buff, or a concert goer. However, I have seen
    Nickelback twice
    Shinedown twice
    Godsmack once
    Breaking Benjamin once
    Buckcherry twice
    Weird Al Yankovic once
    Collective Soul twice

    They all came to my town and performed so that's how I caught them. My wife bought us tickets to see the Foo Fighters in Nashville on May 4th this year. So I'm excited to see that.
