I do Music Monday every Monday, often introducing new music from bands I like. Last week another blogger with a love of music, Hayley, and I got to talking about our love of seeing bands live and we decided to publish our lists of the bands we’ve seen live. The idea is for as many of us as possible to publish our lists of concerts (using #MusicMonday) so we can discuss and compare our lists and the bands we love. Without further adieu, here’s my list:
The Who, The Police, Genesis, Yes, The Fixx, George Thorogood, James Taylor (not related to me),The Grateful Dead(2x), Queensryche, Metallica, Indigo Girls, R.E.M., Phish(2x), The Dead Milkmen, Marilyn Manson, Nine Inch Nails, Green Day(6x),Less Than Jake (4x), New Found Glory (4x), Sugarcult, Panic at the Disco(3x), Motion City Soundtrack 3x, Fall Out Boy(4x), Blink 182(3x), Rob Zombie, Godsmack, Good Charlotte, Reel Big Fish(3x), 3OH!3, Bouncing Souls(2x), Sum 41, They Might Be Giants, Moxy Fruvous, Anarbor, Riverboat Gamblers,
Jesus H. Christ and The Four Hornsmen of the Apocalypse (lead singer has read this blog in the past and implied that I may have partially inspired their song “Vanity Surfing“), Say Anything, All American Rejects, We the Kings (2x), AFI (lead singer from my hometown), Anberlin, Cage the Elephant, The Strokes, Hey Monday, Yellowcard (2x), All Time Low(5x), MC Lars (singer of the classic “Hot Topic is Not Punk Rock), Manchester Orchestra, My Chemical Romance, Mayday Parade, Breathe Carolina, Four Year Strong, Streetlight Manifesto(I didn’t know anything about them and they turned out to be very good. You can’t beat a band with a horn), Paramore, New Politics, BabyMetal (a crazy Japanese band that caused my blog to get about 8,000 views last August), Weezer, and Imagine Dragons.
There’s probably at least a hundred more opening bands that I can’t remember. Which ones on my list have you seen? Which would you want to see? What are your favorite concerts that you’ve been to?
Make sure to visit Hayley and look on Twitter for #MusicMonday and if you’ve got time post your own list and link here so I can visit you and tweet you. Have a great Monday! ~Phil
I would have loved to see Reel Big Fish!!! I can’t remember all the opening bands that I have see over the years either!
Reel Big Fish is always fun live!

Snap with R.E.M.! You’ve seen so many good bands. What were the Who like?!
The Who were great! First band I ever saw.
Amazing! They are legendary.
Yes, I obviously caught them at the tail end of their career
They were still good though

We have a few bands in common! 🙌 This was fun trying to remember all the concerts I’ve been to. Here’s my list:
Phil, here is my link – and yes, I saw Led Zeppelin when I was a young kid – at the height of their prowess – plus The Clash at their rawest and some other great shows since – https://johnrieber.com/2018/04/16/muiscmonday-seven-incredible-concerts-i-saw-led-zeppelin-paul-mccartney-stevie-wonder-todd-rundgren-the-eagles-tears-for-fears-the-clash/
My ticket stubs are in storage so I am going to try and do the best I can from memory-which I am sure I will miss something! My first concert was in 83 Loverboy! I was 9!! The following was in 84 Billy Idol. Then 88 Motley Crue & Whitesnake. That concert alone has it’s own story I will blog about sometime!
Ratt, Cinderella, Bon Jovi, Skid Row, LA Guns, Dangerous Toys, Faster Pussycat,London Choirboys, Redd Kross, Joan Jett, Lita Ford, Warrant, WInger, Great White, Black Crowes, Rammstein, Van Halen (Sammy but I am a Dave girl) Tesla, Every Mothers Nightmare, Enuff Znuff, KISS, Ted Nugent, Aerosmith, Rolling Stones, Pink Floyd, Robbie Krieger, Lenny Kravitz, Pink, Madonna, Lady Gaga, The Gap Band, Buddy Guy, Koko Taylor, Metallica, Anthrax, Saxon, UFO, Dokken, ZZ Top, Lynyrd Skynyrd, Grateful Dead, Steve Miller Band, Local H, Alice Cooper, Jackyll, AC/DC, Poison, New York Dolls ……I am going blank….LOL…..If I dig the stubs out of storage I will add to the list. But yeah, it was fun being a girl in the late 80’s and early 90’s and growing up near Chicago! Had a blast and a lifetime of stories to tell and even met Ratt & Skid Row a few times. Enuff Znuff was like a weekend ritual at the Thirsty Whale, partied with them a lot there. Today if I could, I would love to see Foster the People, 21 Pilots, and Imagine Dragons along with the Black Keys. I would have a blast I am sure. Thanks for the fun post and trip down memory lane. There were a few shows I am very lucky I made it home alive from. So many crazy good times!
Just remembered Kix, Britny Fox and Robert Plant and Marilyn Manson. This is driving me nuts! I have to go to storage. 😆
Scissor Sisters and New Politics. Hessler and my friends in Black4 opened for Saving Abel, and Avenged Sevenfold…they are going to keep coming to me.
And Soundgarden! They opened for Skid Row one of the times I saw them at Aragon “Brawl”room. And Pantera!!
Green Day, Metallica, Godsmack (5x), Avenged Sevenfold (4x) Disturbed (3x) St. Asonia, Adelita’s Way, Hinder (2x) Theory of a Deadman Breaking Benjamin Fozzy Shinedown (2x) Skillet Garth Brooks Pink Floyd Prince HELLYEAH Staind (2x) Halestorm (2x) Papa Roach Nonpoint Sevendust Bullet For My Valentine Escape The Fate Volbeat Three Days Grace Roger Waters-that’s all I can remember. Metallica was my fave and I’m so jealous you got to see Genesis.
