I've never been to any concerts, but I have sat on the beach with Crosby, Still, Nash & Young as they played music and hung out when I was a kid. I know Steven Tyler (not really well), but again no concerts, He lives a few miles from me actually. That's all I can claim from 'this list' at least.

I saw Sammy Hagar leaving an Outback Steakhouse once.

NY Philharmonic, Florida West Coast Symphony (a few times), Willie Nelson, Information Society, VAST, Evanesence, the Changelings, Telynor (at a street fair), Skinny Puppy (twice), They Might Be Giants (5 or 6 times), Beats Antique, Blue Man Group (Vegas and then on tour), Starkid (3 shows and a concert tour), Kodo and a bunch of less generally famous taiko groups, local bands etc. Almost Kraftwerk but then the pandemic happened.

Front Line Assembly, Melt Banana, Haujobb, Youth Code, Otto von Schirach as opening acts that I can remember.

[edit] forgot to list Tool, even though I was literally thinking about that show while I was writing that post. I talked with Booming Tree, the taiko drummers that worked with Ivardensphere. And I missed Ellen Fullman because I got sick.

That new Queen movie recorded in Montreal? I was there. November, 1981. I remember the cameras wheeling around in front of the stage. Don't know why it took this long to see the light of day.

Does Fleetwood Mac count? My first concert was Foreigner with Cheap Trick as the front band. Cheap Trick came out and just slayed it. Foreigner was such a tight band, it may as well have been a recording. Same with Mac. I was lucky enough to see Bowie twice in two different phases. The Glass Spider tour and the Let's Dance tours. (I don't think Janis Joplin is a band)

I've seen 2 Beatles, separately. George, 1974 (first concert) and Paul 1989.
The last big shew was CSN in 2015, just before Crosby pissed Nash off so badly that he declared an end to the band.
Saw the Stones on the Steel Wheelchair tour, '89 at the Olympic Stadium.
I regret not seeing Floyd in their prime, Led Zep, too.
Saw Genesis 4 times, Peter Gabriel 3.
The Kinks.
Joni Mitchell opening for Dylan in 1999.
Eric Burdon and the Animals 1983, 1999. '83 was the original Animals line-up. I was in the second row.
Supertramp, 1983, their last tour with Hodgeson.

saw elvis, as a hologram (was working wasn't by choice)

saw dylan at glastonbury, was so far back, it could have been anybody and couldn't hear a thing.

Like 30 years ago my nephew got us tickets to ZZ-Top. Not in Holland, but 3hrs drive to Germany (Köln) in some football stadium. Support act: a local hardrock group. Next support act: Bryan Adams. Yet another support act: John Farnham (he got some booos)
They all had decent stage space (10x30m?), but after a little waiting the black curtains went up and there was ZZ-Top. In a car demolition facility. Sexy dancers, laser beams, driving in carts, the drummer being dumped in a machine that ate cars for lunch. Big show. Largest show I ever saw. (had not seen Prince or BB King then yet)

Two years later they played in my own town, facility could host 2000 ppl max. No support acts, no fancy nothing, just three guys playing their music. And they nailed that too!

Hats off to ZZ-Top.

Illinois answer to woodstock i guess.

Goblin about 10yrs ago. Went with a fellow fan that was a horror director I worked for. Heavy bass synths :)

Hawkwind (of course) 2x. First time 93ish in Ottawa. Get caught taking an extra tab in the mens room and ejected from show about halfway through :(. Second 95ish in Toronto. Managed to stay the whole show!

The Cure 87ish

Black Crows, Warrant, Metallica and Aerosmith together. Not my scene but went for free with friends. Black Crows were new to me and pretty damn good. Warrant had a song that was a hit but were unremberable. Metallica were flashy but again I don't remember them well, except they caused a mosh pit. We like most people left after Metallica as Aerosmith started up.

U2 88ish. Right about the time I stopped buying their stuff and moving on.

Grateful Dead with Sting opening 92ish. Sting was great, playing good police songs. The dead were as I expected. A colorful time had by all.

Gerry Garcia Band shortly after the Dead show. Miserable time due to buying a blank sheet of tabs :( and some pretty low key music.

Motorhead 95ish. Extreme live sound band in Toronto's most tinny reverberant warehouse venue ever. I think they were good.

Lots of jazz and blues greats at the amazing various free festivals in Toronto each year :)

see ya 'round...

:!: :!: :!:

Reeves Gabrels was there when I saw Bowie and Nine Inch Nails joined them on stage for half the set, and they played some Tin Machine songs together. As this was before widespread internet, the Nine Inch Nails fans in the audience didn't know that was going to happen and left when Bowie went on, suddenly leaving all of us Bowie fans with front row seats.
only ever saw ozzy solo (with zakk)
Same. Zakk was awesome.
saw dylan at glastonbury, was so far back, it could have been anybody and couldn't hear a thing.
Similar story when I saw The Who at Glastonbury. Pretty much worthless.
