Basically give a rundown, to the best of your knowledge, of all the bands you've seen live and how many times. Thoughts and concise reviews welcome! If you have a lot then save some for a another post to keep the thread going. Make it chronological if you can remember dates and years and shit. I know i cant heh. This also includes support bands, local bands and any other band you can think of.

 

heres mine anywho:

 

Foo Fighters (3 times)

 

Nine Inch Nails (1)

 

The Offspring (1)

 

Sum 41 (1)

 

Metallica (2)

 

SlipKnot (1)

 

Alice In Chains (1)

 

Stone Sour (1)

 

God is an Astronaut (4)

 

Lionel Richie (1) was working at the venue doing security but was a fucking awesome show nonetheless

 

Pussycat Dolls (1) same as above except didn't enjoy it in the slightest

 

Basement Jaxx (1) another on-the-clock one but it was alright

 

Red Hot Chilli Peppers (1) interesting fact: the concert myself and ross were at was filmed for the DVD Live At Slane Castle

 

Queens of the Stone Age (1) supported RHCP at above gig and damn near outshined them. Foo Fighters were also there but werent as good as either band. Still awesome though.

I doubt Rage is ever gonna happen for us dude.

 

I intentionally left out the band you said so I could add some more in time but you twisted my arm:

 

The Rolling Stones (1)

 

Faithless (1)

 

oh and Kasabian! How could I forget. Supported the above. Was pretty drunk when they came on live. Talking like Rorschach. Must go to comics forum.

 

Director (1) fucking awesome Irish indie band, based not too far from my previous home in Dublin.

 

i think im forgetting some great irish local bands but i wanna give them some decent attention with links to their sites and such. I'll save it for a special post.

Audioslave (first real gig i was ever at. fuckin' fantastic)

Rodrigo y Gabriela (saw these before they were big, saw 'em in an old church with about fifty other people. in credible gig)

Metallica (fucking epic)

Linkin Park (supported metallica. did a great job getting the crowd fired up for metallica with their horrific performance )

The Darkness (see above)

Riders On The Storm aka What's left of The Doors (One of the greatest nights of my life, i know there was no jim or john. But hearing "Ladies and gentlemen, from Las Angeles California...The Doors" and then the opening to Roadhouse Blues gave me chills )

Pearl Jam (top quality gig)

Radiohead (another fantastic gig, that was the night after pearl jam)

Beck (supported radiohead, pretty good show)

The Rolling Stones (Played a lot of unknown 80's stuff but started and finished strong, paint it black alone was worth the monies)

Black Label Society (zakk wylde's band supporting ozzy, did'nt play enough of his earlier stuff)

Ozzy Osbourne (without doubt one of the best gigs i've been at, he was on top form as was zakk who more than made up for the poor enough bls set)

Tom Waits (best gig ever. 'nuff said)

Maná (For which I feel an overwhelming shame, but I was young, living with older cousins and nobody wanted to go to Placebo with me)

 

Ely Guerra (It was for free and only a little more than a hundred people attended; it was awesome and Ely is just too attractive)

 

Zoé (Probable my favorite Mexican band ever - besides, that's my girl's name!... well, except it's Zoe, not Zoé)

 

Los Dynamites (Awesome band)

 

Los Bunkers (Which I regret)

 

Austin TV

 

6 Million Dollar Weirdo (They scared me with their incomprehensible hair and clothes)

 

The Kooks (Ugh...)

 

The Flaming Lips (Awesome, awesome, awesome)

 

Stone Temple Pilots (They came in late, but EVERYONE was singing Plush)

 

Nine Inch Nails (Trent Reznor really likes his fancy lights and I love him for that)

 

Pendulum (Didn't know they exist - they're really good live!)

 

MGMT (Eh...)

 

Daft Punk (Their suits and the pyramid - need I say more?)

 

Smashing Pumpkins (The weight of the legends Billy and Jimmy was really evident... bastards didn't play Disarm)

 

The Hives (Vocal's batshit insane)

 

The Go! Team (Bored me to tears and they were so noisy I couldn't make out a single instrument. Ninja's a great performer, though)

 

 

 

I think that's it.

My list is quite pathetic.

 

New Kids on the Block- When they came out the first time

Eminem- The Eminem Show

Janet Jackson- Velvet Rope

 

Awesome

Sarah Brightman- Symphony

I would point and laugh at you openly about the NKOTB, but I've got Sum41 on my list, so that would be more than a bit hypocritical on my part.

 

Oh, whatthefuck... bwahahakjpuhru!lkjlsjhaklg!
