I'd need a novel.

Here are the ones I can remember off the top of my head:

Before I was 18:

1. The Jacksons, obviously when Michael was still alive. It was pre-Thriller.
2. Prince (I was in high school)

After age 18:

Al B. Sure, Karen White (they were on the same bill)
The Time
Teena Marie
The Gap Band
Ronald Isley
Aretha Franklin
Wu-Tang
Common
Nas
Lauryn Hill
Jill Scott
Erykah Badu
Mary Wilson
Ledisi
Eric Benet
Stephanie Mills
Anita Baker
Sade
John Legend
One half of New Edition (Bobby Brown, Ralph Tresvant and Johnny Gill)
Maxwell
Janet Jackson
A Tribe Called Quest
Snoop Dogg
Hall and Oates
Blondie
Pat Benetar

Am supposed to see Gladys Knight tomorrow.

Some other artists come to mind, but they're jazz ones that a lot of people haven't heard of. Also, there are some others that I'm forgetting, but I think this list is exhaustive enough.

There's no way I can remember all of the shows, between music festivals and whatnot, but some of the stand-out shows for me are:

Nirvana
Jeff Buckley
Violent Femmes
Psychedelic Furs
Thievery Corporation (many times)
Richard Cheese (best live show EVER, hands down)
Arrested Development
Les Claypool
The Roots
Beastie Boys
Smashing Pumpkins
Disco Biscuits
tons of electronic/house music acts and DJs (Sasha, Digweed, etc.)

Hundreds, so I'm not even going to attempt a list. Prior to turning 18, my first concert was a free Billy Ray Cyrus concert because my friend was given tickets and I was the only one who would go with her. Loved Aaron Tippin who opened.

My next concert helped redeem me - TLC, the summer Waterfalls was #1, I think.

Those are three I'd really like to see live. It just hasn't worked out for me to do so yet. Florence and the Machine is another.


I was lucky when I saw Bob Dylan - managed to get third row seats. I guess acoustics were terrible on the sides, but it sounded great where we were. Definitely a highlight concert!

There are many others I'd like to see, more than I could fit in this lifetime. I'd love to see NIN, Foo Fighters and The Cure again for sure. Most of the artists I've seen live, really. I definitely prefer the littler shows which are more about the music and less about the show, and loved that at points Foos especially really tried to give that feeling in a big stadium.

My first ever concert was Peter, Paul & Mary.

My most recent concert was probably Boyz II Men.

I have a long list of ones I've been to & ones I would love to see.

There's some good music listed here. I'm highly impressed with LadyV and Juanab's lists, among many many others.

Claudine... Ween Love them.

Dedachan- Duran Duran/ Psychedelic Furs/Strokes/Arcade Fire... Hello!!

NetG, The Cure You're too lucky. My head would explode.

I want to add Kings Of Leon, Florence, and Bjork to my wish list.

I was drug, kicking and screaming, to several bluegrass festivals as a child. I did see and meet Alison Krauss 92 times, before she signed with a record label. She was one of the few that I would turn my Walkman off for. And I swear Dave Matthews Band was at one festival a few years before they became famous.

Also saw 3 lesser known bands that were on The Crow soundtrack and in the movie, several times, at my local bar. Along with several members of The Squirrel Nut Zippers when they were in a band called Sex Police. Really great funk/alternative/brass band, and really good people. They lived in my area, and had many fun house parties.

TNB, I would never judge for Tom Jones. Lol. As long as you don't judge me for seeing John Stamos at a food festival when I was 14.

That sucks Kayb I love Snow Patrol.

I have a unused Fleetwood Mac ticket. $115 ticket to be exact. I had a fever of 103 the day of the show and could not move.

If I wasn't so sick, I would have been livid.
