Bands I've Seen Live

So posts have been slicking of late, alot of reasons for that leading off with that I have the plague. I'm not going to go into the rest, as this is not my own personal bitch session. So here is a half-assed article I've been working on. It's a list of all the bands that I've seen live, that I can remember. I started collecting my ticket stubs from shows when I began college (4 years ago) and alot of these are from that time. Some of the older shows I tried to remember, but I can't quite get the full line ups. I'm working on looking up all the tours I'm not sure about, and will amend this list as they come up.
I'd love to see how many shows any of my readers have been to. I know I'm starting to get some semi-regulars, and many of you are concert goers like me. I realize that some lists would put mine to shame, but I was actually a little surprised with how many bands I have actually seen. And of course I will add to this list over the upcoming months and years.
  1. AC/DC
  2. Alestorm
  3. Alice Cooper

That's a fine list. I've only started hitting a bunch of concerts about a year ago.

Some bands are Virgin Black - The most intense performance I've seen. Finntroll, Ensferum, Tyr, Alestorm and Turisas.

Symphony X, Kamelot was quite good though I don't own anything by them.

Amorphis was quite good too.

There have been others, but those are the memorable performances.

Well I posted everyone I could remember, but there were a few that were really good. And alot of these were on the same tour like Ozzfest 2005 or 2008 or the couple of Family Values Tours I've been too. It's really hard to make an 100% accurate list without hunting down every concert online somehow.
