The Heritage Singers
Oakridge Boys
Moody Blues twice(the smaller venue was much more enjoyable, interaction with the audience joining in with them on stage stuff like that)
REO Speedwagon
Greatful Dead(which I also hitchhiked to) in addition to GD was Santana, and a buncha others I can't seem to remember...
Judas Priest
Suicidal Tendencies, DRI, Social D, and some more I can't remember in a basement
Metallica 4 times
BB King
Chuck Barry
The Platters
Donna Summers

Use to party with Flotsam and Jetsom, Slayer and a band called Lurch Killz at house parties. I remember very little.

That's all I can remember. I'm sure there were more, but I doubt I could remember them so they don't count.

Dude! Suicidal, DRI and Social D in a basement. That must have been fantastic!!

I love going to concerts. Don't go to as many as I use to with being a dad these days, but still try to make a couple shows each year. This year was the DropKick Murphy's and probably the Misfits in December.

Last year I went to Gwar/Municipal Waste and Anthrax/Rob Zombie.

First show ever was Iron Maiden/Anthrax at the RI Civic Center back in 90 (91?) It was Anthrax's P.O.T tour.

Some of my faves through the years.

Clash of the Titans (Alice In Chains, MegaDeth, Anthrax, Slayer) 1991 Great Woods, MA
Nine Inch Nails/ Downward Spiral London, UK
Metallica/Megadeth/The Almighty 1993 Milton Keynes Bowl, UK
Neds Atomic Dustbin 1995 St. Louis, MO
Nirvana The Reading Festival 1992, UK
Pearl Jam / everytime
Anthrax / I love every one of their shows. Been to many
Smashing Pumpkins 1993(?) Corn Exchange, Cambridge, UK
George Winston 1996 some Veterans Hall in Fall River, MA

Hey Heidi...I just scored my Springsteen tickets this morning. It was weird though...he isn't coming here until next April. I don't know why the tickets went on sale so early. Anyway, this will be my 3rd time. I went to The River tour and The Rising tour shows. He is far and away my favorite performer to see in person. He's the most entertaining performer out there and he's like the energizer bunny...he plays on and on and on....

Anyway, here's my list of concerts. I haven't been to too many but have thoroughly enjoyed everyone:

The Carpenters (I was about 12)
Bob Dylan/Joan Baez (I recently found my ticket stub...only paid $6.50!!!!! God, I'm old.)
Jethro Tull (Honestly don't remember when...I was a teenager and it was the 70' do the math)
Springsteen (3 times)
Aimee Mann (2006--she is one of the best lyricists I've ever heard)

I just realized that I'm pretty lame...I haven't been to hardly any concerts. I've got to get out more!

I'll probably miss a few, but heres some of them. All were between 1995 to 2006:

-De La Soul/A Tribe Called Quest (1995 Colby College)

-Toad The Wet Sprocket (Colby, i think 96)

-The Horde Festival (Blues Traveller, with Black Crowes one year, and then Blues Traveller again with Lennie Kravitz and Ziggy Marley, 95 and 96)

-Pantera/White Zombie (1996)

-Phish, 3 day Festival up in Limestone, ME

-REO Speedwagon and Styx! (2000 something)

-Poison (I think it was 1999 or 2000)

- Quiot Riot, Rat, Cinderalla a couple years ago in Augusta ME. This was awesome because A) it was Quiet Riot B) There was a really cool guy with a mullet dancing in the audience. He was definitly messed up. He was really creepy with a beer gut, but he got girls to flash him, I felt like I was in the 80s and not a reunion tour LOL.

- Steve Miller last year (Madisons first concert, but she was in the womb LOL!)

- Natalie Merchant (@ Umaine)

-Indigo Girls (portland ME/Merril auditorium)

-Jewel (portland ME/Merril auditorium)

-Tracy Chapman (portland ME/Merril auditorium)

-Arlo Guthrie (yeaaah!!! very cool @ Umaine)

-Kiss (Portland)

- Reel Big Fish (@Umaine Bumstock, right before Bumstock went really bad the years to follow.....)

-The Beach Boys (well the remaining ones) at the Rockland Lobster fest (weird huh)!

-an oldies reunion type of tour with the Platters and some other great groups I can't remember the names of right now!

-Man I know there's more that I'm missing......

Lost count of the concerts I've been to.

Went to see Gary Numan in Glasgow last night on the "Replicas" tour. It was superb. This is the 30th anniversary of the release of the "Replicas" album and it sounds as fresh today as it ever did. Any one else out there think its one of the great albums?
