Brooks and Dunn
Toby Keith
Sawyer Brown
Clay Walker

NOW.....I hate country music! LOL I would give my right hand to see The All American Rejects though!

Alot. I go to loads of gigs, but recently haven't had time. The most recent two I have been to are Patrick Wolf and Yacht.

I have never been to a real concert. Unless you count the Goo Goo Dolls at the Brick Yard last summer. I saw them from the other end of the track, which is really far away.

But there are all kinds of bands that I want to see!! crybaby

Nic, I just downloaded and watched Urgh!, which is a concert movie made of the New Wave and Punk bands from about 1981. It's pretty good, and that's coming from someone who wasn't that involved in it at the time.

I'm surprised you're not into country anymore, Pixie. I thought country fans were lifetime fans. I'm glad you came over to the Good Side, though. evil4 Just kidding, people.

Back when concert tickets were still within reach, I've seen:

Rush-2112 tour
Yes-4 times
Moody Blues
Jethro Tull
Bob Seger, Night Moves Tour, and Van Halen, first tour, at a festival
Cheap Trick and KISS at a stadium, back to back
Steve Miller, rough crowd
Huey Lewis, unfortunately
Phil Collins, Face Value tour
Eddie Money
Mitch Ryder, free show
Rare Earth, twice, free shows

Detroit is the home of Rock and Roll.

Greenday
Pink
U2
Madonna
Bon Jovi
Kylie Minogue
Billy Joel
The Wiggles evil4

I would've loved to have seen The Cure. I used to have such a big crush on Robert Smith!

How cool. Did you have much to do with them or did they keep to themselves?

Seen loads of bands, probably because i like festivals and you see shit loads there... my best were most likely: Black Sabbath with the orriginal lineup (not randy obviously), then Ozzy on his own which was cool, Velvet Revolver, System of the down, Alice Cooper (he called me trash and i got the guitarists pick), Tori Amos (just her sitting between two pianos, playing them both at the same time. spellbinding actually) Brian adams was much better than i expected... lots more but they're the best i think. I'd have loved to see lots of the big rock bands from the 80s.

Not this gal! LOL I cant stand to even hear a country song anymore!
Oh, and I see that you were at a Cheap Trick and Kiss concert. How long ago was that? I am asking, because as you know my hubs is from Detroit and he went to a Cheap Trick and Kiss concert a long time ago. Wouldnt it be weird if you guys were at the same one? LOL

Now Castlequeen has to reveal her ill-spent youth as a rocker-chick.
If there's Deadheads, I was a Kinkhead, having seen the Kinks some 18 times, Ray solo 5 times and Dave solo 4 times. Seen:
Sammy Hagar
Cheap Trick
AC/DC
Blue Oyster Cult
Tom Petty
Nick Lowe
Elvis Costello
Dave Edmunds
Ringo Starr and his All Starr Band
Steve Miller
YES
ELP
Moody Blues
Eddie Money
Jefferson Starship
38 Special
The Smithereens
ZZ Top
Rolling Stones
Living Colour
Greg Kihn
Huey Lewis
Dylan and the Dead special one time concert at Oakland (the high lasted for days it seemed like and that was from second hand smoke...LOL)
Matthew Sweet
Fountains of Wayne
OK-Go
The Posies
George Clinton/P-Funk, etc, etc.
Squeeze
Molly Hatchet

I'm sure there's more that I've simply forgotten...now that a concert at a decent venue is in the hundred dollar range, I rarely go anymore. I saw the ads for Blondie, but 129.99 a ticket? Sorry, nostalgia isn't worth it. DEVO came by last summer, but 89.00? Don't think so.

I love festivals too. Saw Ozzfest a number of years ago, with the original Sabbath lineup, which was great. I've seen Alice Cooper a couple of times; I know his tour guitarist, so I get backstage there, which is pretty cool. Other shows that I've seen include:

KISS
Rolling Stones
Neil Young
Elton John
Ted Nugent
Smashing Pumpkins
The Tea Party
Matchbox 20 (I won the tickets, so I kind of had to go)
Godsmack

And I'm going to a Kings of Leon show in a couple of weeks. Ticket prices have just gotten really really ridiculous over the past few years, though. I don't go to as many shows as I used to, or as I would like to.


And Ashes: What Randy was there in the original Black Sabbath lineup of Ozzy, Tony, Bill, and Geezer?

It was 1979, Pixie, at the Silverdome. Cheap Trick was on before KISS, but cut their show short because someone threw an M-80 at them. I'll bet he remembers that if he was at that one. I think it was KISS' "Hotter Than Hell" tour.

Manson was on the Ozzfest lineup I saw. Great live performer. Slipknot was on the bill too; they just plain sucked. I don't love them to begin with, but live they were frigging horrible.

Yeah, I think it was 2000 when I saw them, and they were not good at all. Then again, they were on right after Zakk Wylde's Black Label Society, who just completely tore it up... One of the best live short sets I have ever seen.

Maybe Slipknot is like good wine.... words I couldn't possibly have envisioned ending the day with when I woke up this morning.

I just asked him, and I was mistaken. It was Cheap Trick and Loverboy that he saw. Many many years ago! LOL

You've seen some great ones, CQ. I've always wanted to see some George Clinton. I have most of his stuff.

Hubs and I were talking to the guy that used to be in Pantera a few months ago in Tom Thumb grocery store.Vinnie Paul. He's also in Hell Yeah and Damageplan. Was funny seeing an aging rocker buying hotdogs for a cook out for Memorial Day. He dyes his hair too. *snicker* Could see gray chest hair too!! *snicker again*


I've seen quite a few as well but, I'm like everyone else. I refuse to pay a hundred bucks to see any of them. Same reason I won't go to Disney for $80.00 either.
