Queen. But no closer than 20 rows or so, 'cause Freddie had a bad habit of spitting all over the place when he sang.
Billy Joel in a bar/club.
Most 80's hair metal bands, I've only seen a handful of concerts so it's easier to list those. I saw VH twice in the early 90's. My first concert was REO Speedwagon. Then it was:
1980- Bob Seger/The Rockets/Mitch Ryder, City boy/Foghat
1983ish - Cheap Trick
1990? - VanHalen
1992 - VanHalen
2002 - Peter Frampton - YAAAAAAAAAAYYYYYYYY!!!!!! I had waited 30 years to see him!!!!
Being a musician I would love to have gone to many many concerts in my lifetime but today the ticket prices are outrageous so I refuse to pay it. The local casino gets a LOT of great bands but at $40-50 each I can listen to their CDs.
In Chicago it was tickets by mail, first come first served. My friends and I drove down to the Chicago Sun Times building and (with maybe 200 other people also there) and grabbed the first edition off the presses. Then we drove to Chicago's (previous) main USPS branch on Canal and mailed the forms.Led Zeppelin - I had tickets in 1980 but the tour was cancelled when John Bonham died.
You MUST see TOOL! Luckily they still do a few shows a year. By far the best show I have ever been to. Bucket list stuff!So so many...
I would have loved to have seen the Beatles or the Doors, but was not alive yet.
As a tween I was all about pop metal, but have only ever seen Faster Pussycat after they went industrial.
I was crazy as a teen about White Zombie, Tool and Rage Against the Machine, but failed to see any of them.
I just had tickets to see Def Leppard, Motley Crue, Poison, and Joan Jett and the Blackhearts, but it was canceled
