Way back when....Southern Illinois University at Edwardsville hosted the "Mississippi River Festival" every summer. They brought in a wide range of artists including, The Who, Yes, The Nitty Gritty Dirt Band, Marshall Tucker, Seals and Crofts, The Doobie Brothers, even Benny Goodman. Admission was cheap if you were willing to sit outside the tent on the lawn. We were there all the time. If any of you remember Heart, we saw them as an unknown opening act. One of my all-time favorite concerts was Jerry Jeff Walker at the Wash U quadrangle in St. louis. Humble Pie at the Kiel Opera House, Vassar Clements or The Flying Burrito Brothers at the Ambassador....Ah, memories!
Heres my list:
Blue Oyster Cult
Black Sabbath(with Ozzy and with Ronnie James Dio)
Never got to see Pink Floyd:upset:

Well, the ones I remember:
Van Halen - The Third and final time
The Boss - 4 times
Pink Floyd - Momentary Lapse of Reason Tour 87' ( *$#@'ing awsome, I remember the first two songs :upset: )
Beach Boys- 12 times (Hey, It's a So Cal thing)
Plimsouls - (LA 80's band)
Guns n Roses - In Toyko, It really sucked!
Went to the US festival back in 82', but was really drunk at the time. :redface:JUST WIN ONE FOR THE FANS

The most notable concert I went to was in Knebworth Park outside London in the Summer of 1986 - it was Queen's last performance before Freddie Mercury died (which I didn't realize until years later when I was watching a "Behind the Music" special on the band).
I have also seen:
The Rolling Stones
Bob Seger and the Silver Bullet Band
Hall and Oates
And some others I can't think of at the moment.

I did see Puddle of Mudd early this year. I thought they were really good live.
Most bands don't come around here often, so my list is a bit small but growing:
-Countless bands at the Warped Tour (2002 & 2003)
-Creeping Charlie (a local band)
I know there were more, but I can't think of them off the top of my head.

Jake, is Disturbed good in concert? Knickleback is coming close but I don't know if they are good live?
Disturbed was very good in concert. They had a kickass intro with a bunch of, uh... disturbing images flashed on a big screen which pulled back to reveal Draiman being pulled onto stage in a straightjacket. This eventually led into their first song, and from there on it was all-out rock. They were on key and not sloppy at all (even some of the tricky vocals), and even played what was a new song at the time (Prayer, the first single off their second album) for us. I'm not a big fan of Nickelback, so you're on your own as far as that goes, but I strongly recommend seeing Disturbed if you ever get the chance.

About 150 Boingo concerts. And Grampa Becomes a Fungus.
I couldn't begin to tell you all the shows I've seen, but here are some highlights....

Stevie Ray Vaughan - 5 times
Elvis Costello - 6 times
Rolling Stones - 1981, paid ten bucks for the ticket.
The Who - 1978
U2 - Opened for the JGeils band and were booed off the stage. 1981
Now TX is a man after my own heart. That was when rock N roll rocked. I am like TX though I couldn't even begin to list all the shows I've been to. Back in the 70s I worked for an ex-patriate in Munich,Germany who hired Americans to do roadie work. We were doing at least 1-2 shows a week for 2 years. Everything from Patty Smith to the Stones, Lou Reed and Golding Earring. In the early 90s me and a mate formed a company to provide security work, ushering, contraband interdiction and ticketing to events on the east coast. The Dead hired us for one of their fall tours and when we got back we hooked up with the Stones for the Steel Wheels Tour in chicago,cleveland, indianapolis. This was a part-time gig for about 4 years.
let's just say ... I wouldn't know where to start.
-Dave Matthews Band x7
-The Argument x3-4
-The Clarks x2-3
-Sixpense None the Richer (an opener, bleh)
-Willie Nelson (Farm Aid)
-Neil Young (Farm Aid)
-Kid Rock (Farm Aid)
-John Mellencamp (Farm Aid)
-Toby Keith (Farm Aid)
