Like it says, can you name all the concerts you have been to in your lifetime. Or atleast try your best, if it is too hard, just name the ones you can remember/the most memorable ones! I have been to quite a few concerts, so I will just name my top 10 favourite ones: 1) Incubus with Sparta - 2004 2) Live 8 Canada - 2005 (too many bands to name) 3) System of a Down with The Mars Volta - 2005 4) Warped Tour 2007 - various bands 5) Stone Temple Pilots with Our Lady Peace - 2009 6) Our Lady Peace - 2010 7) Edgefest ft. A Perfect Circle, The Weakerthans, more - 2011 8) Foo Fighters - 2011 9) Modest Mouse with Brand New - 2014 10) Modest Mouse - 2014

I only remember a few, Canned Heat (1972), Three Dog Night (1970something), Pink Floyd (1990something) Then I got to see an impromptu jam session with Ray Wiley Hubburd, I'm not big on country music but I was there when they started jamming, I don't recall who else was there tho.

Cool, good ole' classic rock! :) Of course, I am sure back then they did not refer to it as classic rock though? Anyways, you know what I am saying though. Truthfully, I have never heard of Ray Wiley Hubburd.. I do not think, anyways. But you said something about country, and I am not big on country, so that is probably why I have no clue. Anyways, sounds interesting nonetheless! :)

The late 60s and the 1970s were very different than the 80s & 90s @mawdest not many really kool rock bands toured all of the US, usually they'd only go to the really big and popular cities like LA and places like that, too far for those of us in this city to get to back then, yay for the internet cuz now it's all in youtube

Nice! That is a good variety of bands for one concert! The main reason I remember all of my concerts, is because I had held on to all my tickets and then entered the bands on to a website that now shows all the bands I have seen. It is pretty cool and convenient :)

I've seen Maroon 5 twice but not since 2011. I think it would be awesome to see Bon Jovi!

@katsmeow1213 Maroon 5, that is a group I would not mind seeing, even though I am a bit more in to hard rock/metal type music typically. There are a few songs by Maroon 5, though, that I like.. I am thinking if I really looked in to them more I would like them a lot. The guy has a really good voice!

Very cool! Hey, what's wrong with the Monkees? Haha. Also, I do not think I have heard of "Kris Kross" or "Jon Secada" before.. What kind of music is that?

@mawdest Kris Kross was 2 teenage boys in the 90's, basically 1 hit wonders. Jon Secada is kind of like easy listening at this point, big in the late 90's, had a couple good songs on the radio.

In a word, no. I can barely remember the 40 concerts I've been to this year, or the 70 I went to last year. To go all the way back to 1968, when I first went to a live show (the Grand Ole Opry)?? Impossible. (I do remember my firsts, though: first concert was the Grand Ole Opry; my first non-country music concert was Neil Sedaka in 1976; and my first rock concert was the Eagles in 1978.)

Wooooww, sometimes I think I have been to a decent amount of concerts (for how old I am anyways) but I probably may average about at the most 4 or 5 major concerts a year... I would never wind up anywhere near 40 or 70! That is amazing, sounds exhausting, but also like a lot of fun!

I don't go to "major concerts" or "arena acts" shows. The biggest name I saw last year was Neil Sedaka.

Wow that would be at least 3 hands worth, five fingers each and you want me to remember the performers too, ugggh that is too many years BUT I can recall the favorite ones: Pink Floyd (all 4 times); Lynyrd Skynyrd 1 time); Willie Nelson (1 time); Aerosmith (1 time); Cher (2 times); Neil Diamond (3 times); David Cassidy (1 time); Rush (1 time) and a Woodstock 30th reunion !

Wow, some good variety there, but I definitely like your music taste, I must say! I have also seen Rush once before, back in 2007, I believe it was. Great band to see live! I am certainly most envious that you had been to Wooodstock '99, I would have done anything to had been there, if I had ALSO not been 9 years old at the time... Hope I am not making you feel too old, haha. But seriously, that would have been a great festival to have been at! So many great bands were there :)

@PhredWreck That's cool dude, there is a band called Modest Mouse, you have probably heard of them.. Anyways, I have been seeing them twice a year lately. My goal is to try to see them once a year though for as long as possible. Also, I like ZZ Top and Twisted Sister as well, nice, but I am mostly quite jealous that you have seen Godsmack, I love those guys!

I haven't been to many and I sure as heck couldn't tell you what year they were. I couldn't afford to buy tickets to concerts. Let's see if I can remember them all - The Beach Boys, Stompin' Tom Connors, Brad Paisley, Ann Murray, Donny Osmond (as an adult). I think that's it. I've probably seen more musical stage shows than I have concerts.

Well, like I said in a previous comment to someone, some are from memory, but the main reason I remember these all is from keeping all my tickets and I also entered all my concerts in to a database on a website as well, that is basically the only reason I know all the years and what not! Also, ATLEAST half the concerts I have been to in my life, I have gotten in to for free, because they have been at a local casino, and a family member gets perks - which happens to be they get free tickets to shows, so I have been to lots of free concerts because of that. I have been quite fortunate in that sense! :) Anyways, those are some good shows, by the sounds of it! I love Stompin' Tom Connors! So cool! :) Musicals are great too!!

@mawdest Oh I totally forgot I saw the Beach Boys too, they performed after a baseball game and I won tickets to see it. I think I might have also seen Michael Bolton... I know his band was playing a charity baseball game and I was at that game, I just can't remember if they performed or not.

I tried to make a list one day and it took me a very long time to name them all and I'm pretty sure I missed a few. I used to go to concerts every weekend for a couple of years straight. I went to the 2007 Warped Tour too! I also went to the 2008 one as well. I like those types of concerts because it gives you the chance to see a lot of bands all at once. Definitely worth the money.

Fair enough, I have seen quite a few concerts as well, but definitely have not gone to ones every weekend for any given period of time, but that is great, that sounds like that would have been very fun and exciting! The 2007 edition of Warped Tour was fantastic, was it not!? I remember seeing Paramore, Killswitch Engage, A Static Lullaby.. Just to name a few but I know there were sooo many good ones that year. As for 2008, I did not go that year.. I have only been in 2007 and 2012 or maybe it was 2013, I do not actually remember for some reason, haha. I agree, that small one day festivals of that sort, have great value for the money!

Oh wow, Elvis? Very nice! I am not trying to make you feel old or anything, but my grandma told me she had seen Elvis before once, and she told me it was a really great concert, minus all the screaming girls or something haha. Anyways, good stuff!

@nanette64 Well, I believe my grandma saw Elvis earlier on in his career if I am not mistaken, maybe in the mid or late 50's or early 60's.. :) Heh that's cool! Got to love that, a concert where people are not going too crazy is always a good thing.
