Goodness.

A meme from fraterrisus made me blink in amusement.

20 big-name bands you've seen in concert.

Um. Er. I'm not even sure I can get to 5, even stretching the definition of "big names".

Rusted Root
Toad the Wet Sprocket
TMBG
Sarah McLachlan

Uh... ummm....

Not that I don't love music. I'm just not a big crowd-crushing, ear-ripping, smoke-coughing concert sort of person. That and most of the groups I would kill to see live were no longer touring by the time I was aware of them...

I can only get to 4. So you've beat me. But we've got overlap! And I've seen some of them twice!

Toad the Wet Sprocket came from my home town.

I have to admit I'm surprised
I actually came up with 13 musical acts I've seen live. I wouldn't say that they were all big names and in the case of two... I really wish I hadn't... but still, far more than I would have guessed.

um. stretching "big-name bands," somewhat:

Rush. (4x)
Beach Boys (bleah)
Duran Duran
Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers
Tempest (something like 11 times)
Weird Al Yankovic (state faire, I was lucky)
Billy Joel
Um, Lilith Fair - hence Sixpence, The Pretenders, Sarah Mac, Bonnie Raitt (guested), Luscious Jackson (since disbanded),
Erasure (opened for duran duran)
OH! and They Might Be Giants!! (one of the few things that particular ex did memorably was a birthday concert ticket!)

but yeah.
that's about it, I think.

Crosby, Stills, Nash
Tom Petty
Moody Blues
Stevie Ray Vaughn
Neville Brothers
Robert Plant

Rod Stewert/Tina Turner
Bruce Springsteen
some forgettable Doors and Led Zep 'tribute' bands

some of those were ones i had camped out in line with friends for tickets....i can't imagine doing that now.
Nothing like an outdoor concert, in 112 degree weather, in Phoenix, AZ....

Sammy Davis Jr. (with parents)
Natalie Cole (with parents)
U2
Save Ferris
Everclear (which blew)
Fiona Apple
Fleetwood Mac

Now if you ask how often and what I've seen at the theatre, that would be a much longer and better list.
