I have been meaning to compile this list for a while now, but due to my inexcusable laziness, I never have. This is a list of all the bands that I have seen live; the ones in bold were particulalry brilliant, while the ones in blue are bands that I don't like but saw at festivals.

It actually doesn't look as many as I had thought...until you take into account how often I have seen the same people.


  1. Between the late '80s and early '90s I had been to about 150 concerts. But when I tried to list them all I realized that my memory was a bit fuzzy on some of the details. One of these days I'll have to dig out my ticket stubs to fill on some of the blanks.

    First concert: age 14 in Cleveland, Bruce Springsteen right before The River was released. He sang the lyrics to Point Blank from a sheet of paper he pulled out of his back pocket.

    Your first concert? Assuming of course that you didn't list these in order.


  2. Aye, I have the feeling that I have missed some key bands out here, so no doubt I will keep updating this!

    Bruce Springsteen is an impressive first concert! My first was Bon Jovi in Huddersfield, which I think is fairly cool. I was six or seven years old. I tried remembering them all in date order, but I've seen so bands bands over and over that I got mixed up.

    Em xx
