Ok I know I have stated recently that I'm going to AC/DC, but I can't be any more excited. They are my favorite band. I have seen them once and they are epic. History: Started in like 1973 and are continuing to rock the halls 36 years ish later. They sound pretty much the same.... Epic Guitar riffs and powerful lyrics. Stuff that echoes throughout time. I have a play list on youtube of the set list tonight.... link. And if you are curious to see what they sounded like in the concert I went to, pm me. Someone illegaly recorded the concert and stuck it on youtube. I will not post the links here due to copyright infringements.

I have seen others people in concert..........

The Who

Journey

Toby Keith (3 or 4 times)

Brooks and Dunn

Kenny Chesney

Blue man group

I want to say there was one more, but I can't remember it.

So who has everyone else seen?

Hasn't anyone else been to any shows? :huh:

Anyway... I've seen Rush and Tool. Also, although I didn't SEE them, America played in my town just down the street and I could hear them.

I was going to see Yes but it got canceled.

The bands I have seen are Paradise Lost and Nightwish. That was my very first and only concert. I just ahve to say that Annette is very good at including the audience and Nightwish is an awesome band.

I wish I could've seen AC/DC, Tool and The Who live. Even if the Tool one wasn't exactly live.

I was never much of a concert goer, usually being dragged along. Here is my list

John Denver, twice

Peter Paul and Mary

Judy Collins

The Outsiders

maybe a few others of the above genres

I actually knew some of the Cryan Shames (Sugar and Spice) before they were famous, saw them at a lot of college mixers, their first bass player was in one of my college classes and we joked around a lot instead of paying attention.

In 1962 or 63 I was on our school's version of student council as homeroom rep, and we were deciding on a Spring concert and the choice came down to the Kirbystone Four or the Smothers Brothers. In the 70's a choice like that would cause hilarity, and of course today, only us oldsters would understand the humor (the Kirbystone who?), but back then, they were about equal. Funny, huh!.

The Guess Who

Wide Mouth Mason

Our Lady Peace

Foo Fighters

Perfect Circle

Smashing Pumpkins

umm......a bunch of others that weren't big at the time.

Don't laugh, it wasn't my idea....

The guess who and Wide mouth mason I saw same night, the latter was opening for the former.

The rest all happened same time at a summer bash, there were more but I can't remember them all.

I know I would give just about anything to see Tegan and Sara :( They've played here a few times, but that was before I'd heard them and wasn't a fan at the time.

Next time they pass through, I swear to god, I'll quit my job if that's what it takes to make it! (and then humbly beg to have it back the next day hehe)

They have 6 albums now, and every one of them is firmly rooted into my mp3 player. I'm willing to bet they're permanently hardwired into the thing now.

While I was at the arena, I found out Megadeth and Slayer were playing there the next day. D'oh!

Being a wild child of the 60s and 70s, my first concert was Bobby Sherman. You young folks will have to look him up. The only other singer I saw was Lee Greenwood unless you count Ted Neely in the Rock Concert Jesus Christ Superstar and Melissa Gilbert in the musical Little House on the on the dogpatch (can't spell Pararie) :blush:
