Any one a Neil Young fan? I'm obsessed with the man. Seen him 10 times now in 6 different states. And I'm only 24. But last year I managed to score tickets to Bruce Springsteen with Joe Grushecky in Pittsburg. It was such a small place to see Bruce in. It was very cool. Concerts are my first hobby, then turts and torts. Here's a small list of my favorite bands and artists I've seen.
Neil Young (10 times)
Pearl Jam (11, and met Eddie Vedder 3 times)
Bob Dylan (7)
Bruce Springsteen (6)
Wilco (10)
And many more.
I love going to concerts.

I'll never forget ZZ Top on Halloween night,1980. It was the Deguello tour. Huge costume party,almost everyone at the concert was dressed up.

Galaxy far, far away...
For me:

Rush:Time Machine Tour 2011: Boston Garden: Front Row
Cream reunion at MSG 2005
Rush Presto Tour (Age 11, first time seeing Neil Peart live.)
Chick Corea Acoustic Trio with Dave Weckl on drums at NYC's The Blue Note

I consider myself lucky and have been able to see lots of great live music. Unfortunately, there aren't too many bands left for me that I feel are worth the hassle of the crowds, parking, ticket prices, etc..... In many ways I am a crotchety old man before my time.

Rush is, and will always be, my favorite band. this most recent tour, The Time Machine Tour, was just great and I was lucky enough to catch a few shows on the tour. Great band, great lyrics, great fans.

The Clash opening up for the Who at Shea Stadium in 82, but anytime I saw the Clash it was good. The one that really stands out was at Bonds in NYC when they played with the Dead Kennedys. I also got to see Joe Strummer singing for the Pogues in Boston Shane was not there, it was announced while I was waiting in line to get in. I could not believe how many people booed when they announced the Joe would be singing instead. They did an amazing version of London Calling as an encore.

I was always told if you can remember the concert you did not have a good enough time.
WOW drinking with janis that must have been awesome
sadly I have only been to a few concerts and they were all of the weird al variety.

Most of the music I like is of dead people and since I can't reanimate the dead (yet) I can't go see them, I am/was a big MJ fan and would have loved to see him in concert once.

I've been to my fair share of concerts, but if I had to choose favorites I think my top 3 would be:

1) Rage Against the Machine (2007 Reunion at Alpine Valley, East Troy, WI)
2) Ziggy Marley / The Other Ones (2000 Furthur Festival, Alpine Valley)
3) Tool (2001 Lateralus tour Allstate Arena, Rosemont, IL)

Honorable Mention:
Rush (2007 Snakes & Arrows tour Marcus Amphitheater, Milwaukee, WI)
