Man, how you gonna make me tap into my hard drive when my RAM has been shott for years? Way too much happens in my life on an hourly basis to allow for any organized recall at a later date. Swear I've been rolling blank tape since the last time 18" inseam shorts were in style.
Let's see...PB&J will be very pleased my first concerto was in the presence of Kris Kross. Then it evolved to the annual Steve Miller Band until our entourage realized it was the same playlist in the same order. My first mosh pit was for the Sex Pistols' reunion tour. Gnarl. Saw Rage/Metallica/Fatboy Slim on a three-peat at Woodstock '99 when we paid a security guard $20 each after driving straight to Rome, NY from Boston after seeing sweaty wahines swarming Fred Durst on plywood that afternoon on PPV.
Chili Peppers opened by Foo Fighters before the Grohl explosion. Awesome. Method Man/Redman. Long Beach Dub All-Stars in 2k1 then Sublime w/Rome in 2010. Pearl Jam, Allman Bros., DMB 14x (chick Mecca) which is further qualified by once being opened by Beck who sang a Sprice Girls ballad, Poison/Warrant/Quiet Riot in 2k1 which was the jump off but I'd trade all of that to have seen Dee Snider & Co. play We're Not Gonna Take It just once.
You're testing me now...yeah, so Roger Waters solo in 2000 was the regime. Had an invite to GnR in '03 but blew off the Stage 5 Clinger for purpose of self-preservation. 311 at least once, maybe more. Austin City Limits all 3 days in 2k9 which was highlighted by Ghostland Observatory and honestly, the pain of seeing Kings of Leon was a fair trade for how spirited the girl was later that night. Happy to say no boy bands or NICKELBACK at any point, not even for a chick. Some things are just over the top.
I'm pretty sure Jethro Tull is in there somewhere and if not then I only believe so out of denial that I didn't see a band I was into for so long. Billy Joel was very good. Rancid and a host of other punk bands that are a mental mosaic at this point. The Toadies in downtown Dallas on St. Patrick's Day is so high up there just on their pure value not to mention the way the wahines were treating us Northmen that day. All-time team.
Butthole Surfers and a few other bands to be named later that rocked with them. I think Ozzie is in there somewhere. Jane's Addiction. Circle Jerks. G Love. Rob Zombie (sick). A schittload of rap/hip-hop that I can't quite place at the moment. Aerosmith. Journey. Tool, I think.
A lot of festivals. A lot. Some acts already named. Every good country artist at least 3x and that ranges from popular all the way to Texas country seeing Pat Green in a very small venue twice.
I've been to too many shows, brahs. It was my thing to do for a long time. I'm way too in the moment to think back so far like you guys do. I don't know how you do it. All I can see is the next set coming in and what my next high-protein meal is going to be. Not arenas and lawns I charged victorious in years past.
Stopped going to many shows about 5 or so years ago and now I just go to a lot of games. Playoff games and big games. Sporting events are my bag these days. Even started recently going to lifestyle events like the sick surf comp/festival the last 3 days.

1ST concert was Devo in 1979 - the band started 2 1/2 hours late. So they decided to play every song they had recorded up until then, and then some. We got to talk to the band after the show, it was at Rhode Island College with maybe 7-800 people there.
Loudest was easily Frank Zappa, My ears rang for two days after.
The cleanest playing and clearest P.A. system was Eric Clapton, for some reason he had Phil Collins on drum for that tour thru New England.
Also have seen...
Robert Cray Band
Plus a lot of the smaller venues around Southern New England.
Someone mentioned The Plasmastics - the most underrated Punk Band of the era.
R.I.P Wendy O. Williams
1st concert was 1976: Kansas on their Leftoverture tour. I was a little kid sitting on my brothers shoulders, but I remember they were so damn good.
Billy Idol on the Rebel yell tour in 1983. Billy at his most awesome. Front row and I was right under Steve Stevens guitar.
Saw the B-52's in 83 on their Whammy tour. That one kinda sucked. Sounded lip synched and just too electronic for live (dancing to their records in the bars was much better)
Saw TSOL in 84 on their Change Today tour. They were pre "goth" and super creepy...kinda like going to see a fledgling punk version of KISS. Surprisingly good...especially for punk musicians. Every song was in the same key, but they were relatively well crafted, vocals were outstanding and stage presence was impressive.
Best concert, though, was Steve Morse Band supporting their "Coast to Coast" album in 1992. Steve's so f*cking amazing, he casts a spell over the audience with just his stage presence, then his intricate/classically composed country fried rock arrangements and virtuosity kill you.
Close runner-up would be Vital Information with Frank Gambale in 1991. Frank's sweeping guitar technique is unprecedented, so ungodly technical and smooth, I sat motionless for hours with my eyes glued to his fingers and my jaw on the ground.

Saw Marco Benevento a cpl weeks back, pretty good stuff...if you're into crunchy/jazzy/instumental stuff definitely worth checking out.
