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
