  • Iron Maiden (saw them in Gothenburg with Anthrax as warm-up band)
Maiden always puts on a good show and I think I saw that same tour, 1990-91 for No Prayer for the Dying? Anthrax opened and definitely gave Maiden a run for their money. Out the 4 bands on Clash of the Titans I thought Anthrax was the best. I'm not a huge fan of them but they put on a great live show.

I haven't seen many, but they've mostly been awesome. Roughly in chronological order, headliner followed by opening act(s):

Pink Floyd/no opener
Metallica/Faith No More
Mission UK/Wonder Stuff
Metallica/Faith No More/Soundgarden/Queensryche
Styx/? can't remember who, if there was one, the opener was
Marillion/Dada
Nine Inch Nails/Marilyn Manson
Dream Theater/Queensryche
Pigface/My Life with the Thrill Kill Kult/Zeromancer
Dada/? can't remember who, if there was one, the opener was
Insane Clown Posse/? can't remember the name of the opener
Blind Guardian/Grave Digger
Blind Guardian/Grave Digger (again)

I also had tickets to a Coheed and Cambria show, but the pandemic cancelled it.

EDIT: Oh, I forgot one- I saw Rehab a few years back.

EDIT 2: Oh yeah- and Ozfest! Saw Disturbed, Marilyn Manson, and Black Sabbath there, along with some other, more forgettable, acts.

EDIT 3: Ah! Also, the Grateful Dead, and the Further Fest right after Jerry died, where I saw a bunch of Dead-adjacent acts, including Bruce Hornsby, Mickey Hart, Los Lobos, etc, etc.

I came across this website one night Setlists | setlist.fm and just started making a list of all the shows I have seen out of curiosity. It was really cool thinking back on all of them, the memories and stories that went along with them.


Same there are shows I bought tickets to and just for one reason or another ended up not going. I get bad anxiety so I dont like being in crowds anymore. The two shows in the last year or two I missed and regret was Jack White and Brian Wilson and Al Jardine doing Pet Sounds. Though I heard Brian Wilson was hard to watch. I saw Van Halen 1992, and Alice In Chains opened for them for the Dirt tour, why the hell we decided to get drunk in the parking lot and not go in to see them I'll never know. We all liked them and knew who they were so I'm still kicking myself for that one.
Setlist is a handy site.👍🏽

A lot of the concerts I listed have strong memories associated with them, which is why I can recall them so easily, as opposed to the ones I know I’ve forgotten. (I went to a LOT of shows.)

But one show NOT listed also has strong memories. The Cult was opening a show at the open-air arena literally across the street from my university. My friends and I couldn’t go, and while we could hear the concert was going on from where we were, it wasn’t clearly. So we decided to go to dinner.

But as we crossed the elevated walkway from our dorm to the dining hall, we noticed we could hear The Cult clear as a bell! So we just hung out on the walkway for the rest of their set. We had to sit down in order to avoid the bats, though.

Soooo...heard The Cult live for free with friends under a bat-filled night sky. 😎
 

Now there's a band I've not thought about in forever and a day. I remember hearing a tape of theirs from a Swedish exchange student back in high school.

  • Cat Rapes Dog

The last time Ministry came through, they ended up cancelling. There was a storm that knocked out power at the venue. Even though it came back on in plenty of time, they decided not to risk their electronics. Shame, as it was a Ministry/Revco double billing.

Black Sabbath with the original line up was supposed to play here in 1997 with Pantera. Got tickets, they cancelled. Rescheduled for 1998, cancelled again. Pantera played here 4 or 5 times and I never went and regret not seeing them. At this point Ive seen just about every band I wanted to see.

Lots of bands I wanted to see but now can’t. And several active bands I keep missing...

Santana was playing in Texas. I was in school in San Antonio, and had to leave for home in Dallas 1 day before his show there- the dorms were closing for the holiday. As I was driving back to school, they announced on the radio that his Dallas show was sold out...

Still haven’t seen Santana. Duran Duran, ZZ Top & King Crimson are also high on my list, as would any version of Yes.

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!
That Green Day show was a great time! Though my date and I left before the riot. :D

I remember having to wait in line for tickets at JC Penny or AM&As. Or if you were real lucky you knew someone with a credit card and bought them over the phone.

I also remember here locally 9 out of 10 concerts in the 70s & 80s were promoted by Harvey and Corky Productions. I just found out last year that Harvey was none other than Harvey Weinstein.
