G'day!

             Although we dont have acts tour as regularly here 'Down Under', usually the international acts that do come are pretty good, and our homegrown rock kicks ass! :)  

So, what bands have you seen live? Will list mine here, might be a few you guys dont know, wiki 'em up

Dire Straits, Fleetwood Mac, Elton John, Beach Boys, The Who, Rolling Stones, Bob Dylan, Neil Young, AC/DC, INXS, John Butler Trio, Michael Jackson, Guns'n'Roses, Cold Chisel, Australian Crawl, Skid Row, Billy Joel, Arlo Guthrie, Icehouse.....Countless pub bands, and cant wait to see Paul & Ringo this year, also going to the Casbah for 'Best Fest' in August to see the quarrymen, the Blackjacks & The Pete Best Band... Sure I have missed a cpl up there too....

Wow, that's so many concerts and so many great bands. In 2010, I saw Ringo Starr and his All Starr Band, and that's it. I really want to see thenewno2 live (if they're touring anytime soon). I believe you mentioned them in a thread about George's creepy songs, and I listened to them on Youtube after that. So thank you for introducing me to a new band, and making me realize that I should go to more concerts. a-hard-days-night-george-9

I haven't been to that many, but they were:

 

"Please don't bring your banjo back, I know where it's been..  I wasn't hardly gone a day, when it became the scene..  Banjos!  Banjos!  All the time, I can't forget that tune..  and if I ever see another banjo, I'm going out and buy a big balloon!"

Davy Jones (see first concert page)

3 Door Down (first big concert that I enjoyed)

Weird Al- didnt enjoy because I was dragged to it.

The Beach Boys-awesome, they still have the harmonies.

Cowboy Mouth (local band)- I liked it and didnt like it at the same time. The band was entertaining, but we were at festival like and it rain earlier that day on top of it being cold. We were on a tarp like thing covering the mud.

Johnny 2x4 (local band)- enjoyed

The Adolescents - enjoyed

Lower Class Brats - enjoyed

Music As A Weapon Concert: Disturbed, Korn, In This Moment, and SevenDust - Awesome, except for In This Moment

Kansas- awesome

Judas Priest -awesome

Ringo Starr -awesome

CPR Fest Concert: Halestorm, Chevell, Hollywood Undead, Evanescence- awesome, found a few new bands to like

 

Hopefully I get to see Elton John in March.

I grew up in a place that was for years concert-deficient.  That is, until I moved away and then load of concerts started happening.

And where I moved to:  Used to have multiple concert venues.  After I moved there, they started closing down.  D'oh!

That being said:

Alice Cooper, Cheap Trick, Metallica, Iron Maiden, Anthrax, KISS, U2, Fiona Apple, Motley Crue, Poison, Def Leppard, Cracker, Elliott Smith, The Pixies, Bob Dylan (I got onstage!), The Beach Boys (original lineup), Brian Wilson, Electric Six and Rob Zombie, right off the top of my head.

And I go to lots of club shows to see a bunch of excellent Canadian bands that most of you probably have never heard of, like: Sloan, Joel Plaskett, Thrush Hermit (reunion tour), Kidstreet, Rheostatics and Mother Mother.

E is for 'Ergent'.
