Saw Chris Isaak and the Fray back to back weeks last Spring, great shows. We try to go to couple concerts a year, and I finally got to see Bryan Adams in concert last year (one of my all time favorites).

I still haven't had the good fortune to see Springsteen, wish I could...

Blueman Group in Vegas. HIGHLY recommended!

A few years ago I went to the Video Games Live concert. That's a good one if you enjoy video games.

Before that it was the original Lollapalooza in '91. I don't go to concerts very often.

I saw the Quebe Sisters Band (www.quebesistersband.com) in October. They're three sisters who are amazing fiddle players (and a guy on bass and another on rhythm guitar, but mostly it's about the young women). My mom loves them and they always play at this fiddle festival not far from where my parents live right around the time of Mom's birthday. So I fly out and spend the weekend with my parents and we see them play.

I try to go to one at least every couple of months.

I had tickets to go to see Two Door Cinema Club, but ended up bailing last minute, so the last show I actually went to was The Wombats, at Newport Music Hall, back in September. Fourth time I've seen them.

I have tickets for the Keane show in January there, but not sure if I'm actually going to go.

There's a ton of bands I wish I'd been able to see but haven't yet. Most of them due to not touring here in the US, but I do still feel a little regret for not going to the Bloc Party show many years ago-- Had tickets, but just felt kinda "meh" so decided not to go.

Wow, now that I think about it, it was actually Ke$ha and LMFAO in Philly last summer I think. It was a total fluke - there was a groupon and the tickets were super cheap...a girls' night out. Surprisingly it was a great show! Before that I think it was Metallica and Godsmack - much more my normal concert fare.

My wife and I went to a guitar recital from a doctoral student. It was pretty fantastic, he played some awesome Bach.

Beach Boys 1983. I don't get out much.

We saw Meatloaf in September. It was the last show of his tour and it was incredible. Near the end he had security allow folks up in front of the stage, and DH maneuvered us front and center, only one person away from Meatloaf. Whatever else you can say about him (politics aside), he pours himself into every show. We joked that I got Meatloaf sweat on me. (I have since bathed, I promise.)

@katblue: I don't feel so bad now. It's been awhile, so it would've ben either Manilow or John Denver, around 1985.

Coldplay in Philly. Great show. Light-up wristbands were incredible.

Luke Bryan and Jason Aldean!

We saw Maroon 5 and Train at a venue that is within walking distance of our house. That was a year ago September. Concert tickets are so ridiculous these days we don't go to as many concerts as I would like. At the same venue we've seen Def Leppard, Sammy Hagar and The Scorpions only because we scored cheap tickets.

This past April, the Zelda Symphony. It was awesome.

Twins of Evil show with Marilyn Manson & Rob Zombie day before Halloween.
It was AWESOME!!!! Mason kinda phoned in his performance but Zombie was brilliant. My 4th time to see him live and I will gladly pay to see him again. The man has such an amazing stage presence and put on a show.

@havocsback: Don't get me wrong; I love concerts. In fact, I'm looking forward to my next concert sometime in the next twenty years or so.

I think it was the Dresden Dolls & Sonic Youth in 2004. I didn't realize it had been that long since I went to a concert. I used to go all the time but I think they're way too overpriced now.

@havocsback: Hmm, my computer crashed and the first part of my answer went to the "big answer" place in the sky. Anyway, I was just saying that I don't like the crowds or the loud music, so I, too, don't go to many concerts.

just saw the The Script last week...awesome show! looking for another concert to go to...i love live music, especially when the artists play their own instruments and actually sing.

Its been a while. Probably B.B. King.

The Offspring last time they were in Vegas. Seems like I grew up with these guys. Always a great show.

A friend of mine is a huge Jethro Tull fan and went to several of their concerts on their farewell tour around the country. When they came here we went with him to the concert. It was pretty awesome. But I am just not a live venue person, even for a performer I really like such as Jethro Tull I just don't like the crowds and the volume. So if I ever go to another it will be that sort of social thing more than the concert itself.

Eric Clapton's Crossroads Guitar Festival in 2007. Some awesome music there; Clapton, B.B. King, Jeff Beck, Buddy Guy, Los Lobos, Steve Winwood, Robert Cray, John Mayer (who actually is a very good guitarist), just to name a few. What a great day that was.

I just saw Matt & Kim this past Tuesday. They put on a great show, its now my favorite concert. Next one I'm hoping to see is Walk the Moon in February. A couple friends saw them a couple months ago and said they were awesome.

@jezebelseven: That's Newport Music Hall in Columbus, right? You didn't happen to see them at Outland Live (I think that's the venue I'm thinking of) last November?

@wickedd365: That sounds amazing! I've never seen any of those guys but would love to see Rob Zombie for sure!

Saw my 15th RUSH concert about a month ago. They haven't lost a beat! Even added a huge string section in the second set, it was amazing. Check out their new album, classic RUSH concept album.

@miyoshinum5: I did! I've actually seen em each time they've played Columbus-- Outland, The Basement, A&R Bar, and Newport, haha :) Were you there?

Blueman Group in Orlando. It was very entertaining.

@jezebelseven: Yeah I was there! I drove down from Cleveland to see them. I haven't gotten to see them again since they always go to Columbus and not Cleveland. It was an awesome show though, totally worth the trip!

Only been to four total.
Garth Brooks
Beach Boys twice - young and old
//drum roll// The Beatles

I go to more comedy shows.

vote-for5vote-against

@miyoshinum5: It was funny-- we spoke with them last time about how many times they've come to Columbus, and they told us they actually didn't want to play Columbus this time, but their booking did it anyway-- they wanted to play some new cities! They insisted that if they were gonna play Columbus again so soon, it at least had to be at a different venue, so they made it at the Newport.

So hopefully next time they'll spread the wealth a little more up your way!

A triple dose of Warrant, Firehouse and Trixter. That should give you the hint that I don't really do concerts. I did see Rodney Carrington a couple of years ago...one funny SOB.

Janes addiction a few weeks ago. Great concert, but Dave Navarro is such a douche. Played half the set with an unlit cig in his mouth.

The az fair does some great shows so we got to see them for free. Only had to bring in some used jeans and poof...free concert.

Trans Siberian Orchestra.

Would love to have seen the Who, but hubby is losing his hearing and won't go anymore.

We will go to comedy shows. Seeing Louis Black in April.

Forget the exact dates, but the two most recent were Bruce Springsteen at Wrigley Field, and Halestorm at The Machine Shop in Flint, MI.

The last one I attended was "Weird Al" Yankovic's "Straight Out of Lynwood" concert which I attended with my date who is also big fan.

I had a blast at that concert. Some highlights included:

--Al wearing the titular fat suit for the song "Fat" (a parody of Michael Jackson's "Bad").

--When Al sang "Wanna B Ur Lovr," a song about increasingly absurd pick up lines, he jumped off the stage and made ridiculously suggestive moves to the ladies in the audience, including my date.

--The entire band wearing Jedi robes while singing "Yoda" (a parody of "Lola" and the first STAR WARS trilogy) and "The Saga Begins" (a parody of "American Pie" and THE PHANTOM MENACE).

--A (fake) recorded interview with Kevin Federline. "Weird Al" used clips from an existing Federline interview and spliced in his own questions to the new out of context answers to absurdly hilarious results. (These kinds of "interviews" are shown while the band changes costumes and are fan favorites).

Leonard Cohen, two weeks ago. He goes almost as long as Springsteen, but there's an intermission, which gives him a chance to catch his breath (the show was 5400' altitude).

Last for me was 2007 festival in Tempe, Az, which featured Eric Johnson and John Mayer, but highlight for me was local Gin Blossoms.

Anna Nalick at the Hotel Cafe in Los Angeles. Great concert in a neat venue! You might remember her hit Breathe (2AM) from a number of years back. Then she disappeared for a few years, reappeared for a few years (one of which was when I was out in California), and has recently disappeared again. She promised a new, full length album to be coming out soon, so hopefully that's what she's working on.

Here's a video to (maybe) jog your memory: http://www.iviewtube.com/v/167090/anna-nalick-breathe-%282am%29

Her style is changing though...the way I describe it is she and her music are becoming more hauntingly beautiful.

Theory of a Deadman 2010. I and my friend were right in front of the stage. We missed the last 3 songs because some creepy drunk guy popped out of nowhere and asked us for drugs. We then got scared and ran out of the concert. It was very hard running though crowds from the front to an exit in the back of concert arena.
