System of a Down
P.O.D.
Meshuggah
Pulse Ultra
DMB
G3 (Vai, Satch, Malmsteen)
Eric Johnson (one of my favorite shows by far)

I also saw a classical guitar concert in Boston with Daniel Lippel, it was good i liked it. It was in a church and there was only about ten people in the audience.

and...

I am going to...

Allman Brothers in august

and

Clapton on the 4th of July

all in all its a pretty weak list, probably because im poor and im only 19 soo i have time to catch up i guess



hehe, tim, what you say about Nazareth....i'm sure you mean that in the nicest possible way, right? :P


Clapton is great, i'm sure you're gonna love seeing him play live... i know i sure did :)

also, Allman Brothers should be good, too.

yeah, at 19 you have lots of time to see some great shows!

Iron Maiden - Dublin 2003

I went to see them on the Dance of Death tour and i was expecting lots and lots of new tracks, because thats the Maiden way now. But i was surprised how many old songs they played.

The warm up group, Funeral For A Friend, were booed off stage because they were so crap.

Maiden opened with Wildest Dreams and everybody went crazy!

The show was un-be-fooking-leaveable!

i was lucky with U2.. a friend turned me on to them when the October album came out ..so i tried to catch them evry time they came around near boston....!!!
The orpheum on the War tour, then the centrum on the war tour, 2 times on the Unforgetable Fire tour, at least once for every tour EXCEPT the whole POPMART and the Elevation Tour.....which i just missed out of stupidity....

The whole Bay City Rollers concert....i went so my cousin (who was female and 15) didn't have to go with just her mom... i guess it would be comparing to seeing the Backstreet Boys or Nsync when they were at the height of thier fame.....almost couldn't hear the band because of all of the screaming... ..i was only 13, but it just turned me on to seeing a band live....after that there was no stopping me :D I would literally go see anyone if they were playing live..i was really hooked on live music.....

(I'm home now looking at my concert stubs, so yes i'm cheating)

Ozzy many times

wow! you saw all the early U2 tours, that is sooooooooo cool. you are lucky! 8)

oh, i know just what you mean by going to your first live show and feeling the energy and being hooked forever..... exact same thing happened to me. there is no high quite like the one that live music gives me.
i'd say not only was your cousin lucky to have you go with her to the Bay City Rollers concert, but so were you lucky to discover the joys of live music early in life :)

oh! lucky7 reminds me that i also saw INXS in the early-mid '80's when they played a small club gig near my hometown. man, did Michael Hutchence ever have great charisma and stage presence, not to mention the fact that he could sing with such great range.

union underground
unloco
gone blind
man made god
die trying
dope (sucked big time)
saliva(sucked so bad, left aftert the 2nd song)
shinedown
seether

and thats it. I live 200 miles away from a city with more than 110,000 people my town is only about 90,000 so we dont get any really large tours or artist with some exceptions above.

The G3 tour and ozzfest are the tours that i really want to see but i doubt it will happen at least for a little while
