Dudes,

 

it would be might interesting which bands or musicians you would love to have seen but never had any chance (too young?) to see them live???

 

For me I am really sad that I never have seen:

 

ABBA (one of my all-time faves when I was a young fart - still love their music...)

QUEEN (with Freddie...)

PINK FLOYD (The walls tour...)

and ELVIS

I've seen most of my favorites at least once but have never seen Helloween or Dio. Either of those would be choice.

Seen lots and lots of concerts in my 39 years on the planet but I would have to say Judas Priest and Dio would be the two bands I missed that I would love to see. I guess I could add some lesser known bands like Electric Angels, Aviator, Icon and Roxanne.

Most of the above never toured the UK .... Queen played Man City's old ground and at the time I was living about 3 miles away and could hear strains of the gig on the wind!

I am curious what Shotgun Messiah would have been like in '91 after the Second Coming release. Whether a bar scene or opening up for someone else I'd imagine some serious head banging.

W.A.SP. would be cool.

There are plenty of others for me.

I saw the Little River Band at Sunfest here in West Palm Beach in Florida last year and they kicked ass. The harmonies and vocals are still there. Pleasant surprise.

 

Also today finally got to see Candlebox on this year's Sunfest lineup. Yesterday we saw Tonic and The Gin Blossoms. Candlebox just kicked my ass. Tonic was good and The Gin Blossoms just didn't seem interested.

Pretty much every band in my collection that isn't on my Trade/Sale list. :)

 

Cauterize mostly, though. And Danger Danger and Treat.

Even though the current line isn`t classic LRB, I would have loved to have seen that show! :tumbsup:

 

I`m guessing Wayne Nelson is the main vocalist now?

Bryan Adams (would love to have seen him play a huge venue back in the Waking Up The Neighbours period)

Danger Danger

Firehouse

Kix

Bonfire (great live band I've heard)

Skid Row (in their early days)

One that I've never seen and have always wanted to is Adam Bomb.... maybe one day. Another is The Deadthings... If they ever get back to the US I'm gonna make sure I fix this.

 

Another is Bonfire.... I'll be able to knock this one off my list after Rocklahoma.

Wasn't exactly blown away by them at Firefest to be honest. They were down with Fair Warning and Winger on the list of bands that just didn't live up to expectations....

Yes ICON, I'd like to have seen them back in the 80's as well. Another band that springs to mind is Boston, but I heard they were'nt big on touring is that true?

I thought they were much better than Fair Warning and miles better than Kip Wanger.

I've seen Firehouse numerous times and it doesn't matter if it is a festival, fairgrounds, bar or arena, they always seem like they want to be there and play for the crowd.

 

I saw Aerosmith (Jackyl opened for them) but I don't remember a single thing about the concert. Not sure what that means. :unsure:
