Not a huge concert goer and it's been quite a while. These were all through the '80s.

  • The Who; David Johansen and The Clash as opening acts
  • Duran Duran
  • Simple Minds
  • Orchestral Maneouvres in the Dark; Nash the Slash as opening act
  • Forgotten Rebels; 2 sets
  • Strange Advance; 2 consecutive nights
EDIT: Forgot that I also saw prototypically Canadian band The Norther Pikes in a free concert at Gage Park, in Brampton, in the early '00s on New Year's Eve. If you're not Canadian or haven't listened to college radio in the northern US, you probably haven't heard of them. Here's one of my favourites:

Simple Minds...Terry Bazio on drums, his wife was the vocalist right?

Not ringing any bells for me. Jim Kerr was vocals and, IIRC, for the "New Gold Dream" tour it was Mike Ogletree on drums. Could you be thinking of another group?

EDIT Maybe Missing Persons?

Yes you are correct. Missing Persons I just looked it up.

Too many shows, too few brain cells. So, two most dangerous concerts:

Green Day Riot (1994). Any time you get seriously injured in a mosh pit AND get your riot on? Good times.

Ministry, Great Woods (Lollapalooza). What is more satanic than Ministry? BURN DOWN THAT WALL!

Slayer played the Connecticut Street Armory 94ish. I didnt go but talked to 3-5 people who did and said they were standing and cou;d feel the floor sway from everyone moshing.

Saw Slayer in 90, you couldnt even see the stage because of the dust cloud from everyone moshing,

Slayer shows were fun, I can imagine a Ministry show being the same.
