Bands/Artists You've Seen Live

[ Edited ]
35 replies 285 views Edited Jul 17, 2014

Reviving an old thread from Ye Olde Music General. I'm a big lover of live entertainment, especially live music. Over the last few years I've become somewhat of a festival junkie, going to as many as I can afford/take time off work to. I've tried to keep a list of the artists I've seen over the years to the best of my ability, and of course I'm interested in talking live music with you fine people!

 

I do ask one thing, though. If you have an extensive list, please mark it using spoiler tags so as to not take up an obscene amount of space in the thread. Also, keep us updated with the shows you've seen recently (or plan to see) and let us know about your experiences!

Sweet list!

 

Best Band/Artist: For me that would be the Smothers Brothers. They're an old school comedy team that was really funny on tv and just as good live Robot Happy.

 

Don't have any good music bands/artists to list though, dang it Smiley Sad.

So far I've only seen August Burns Red and Of Mice and Men. Both were seriously great performances.

Staind is in town this month but I'm not sure if I want to see them. I like some songs by them but only like 4.

Bands schedules always seem to avoid where I'm going to be at any given time.

I feel your pain. I'm in a pretty average sized city, but we seem to get skipped over by a lot of bigger tours. Our one or two "large" venues kinda suck, so if I'm seeing anyone it'll most likely be at a smaller venue or in another city/at a festival.
