    Big Name = Arena or stadium headliner
    ()= Number of times after I see the shows for which I'm presently holding tickets.

    U2 - 6 (9)
    Green Day - 2 (3)
    The Killers - 1(2)
    Arcade Fire - 2
    Coldplay - 3
    Elvis Costello - 2

    I think this is a good measure of where a person's music tastes really lie.

    I also hate crowds. They make me very uncomfortable. And I am so not a social person. Yet, I love seeing a few acts live...

    Um... Justin Timberlake twice. Once was an NSYNC concert on my little sisters birthday, and another time, I was the chaperone for her and her friends to the Justified Stripped tour with Christina Aguilera. I am a fan of hers, and they bought my ticket, so I went :) Even thought I am not a huge JT fan. Some of his stuff is OK.
    I have only went to a couple of concerts as no one likes my type of music.

    I forgot Jimmy Buffett - 5

    I've been to tons of others, but only one time each...I love concerts (of course it helps a lot that I worked at a record store in college and in advertising for 20+ years, so tickets were always free).

    My favorite story that I tease my husband about all the time: We went together and took one of my daughters, to a Kenny Chesney concert several years ago (about 5 or 6 years, I think). The opening act was on and she held her hands over her ears the whole time and he kept telling me how that group was never going to make it big...they should just quit even trying to sing. I liked them, but the 2of them thought they were just awful. The opening act: Rascal Flatts!!! One of us was right, anyway!

    Well, I was going to see Harry Chapin for the 2nd time on the night he died... does that count?

    And I've seen the Beach Boys more times than I can count, at the Jones Beach theater. There's nothing like sitting on a hot, humid summer night, seeing the Beach Boys arrive on stage by boat.

    Beyond that, I honestly forget. My concert going days are a distant memory. These days I'm more likely to spend the money on tickets to Disney on Ice for the kids.

    Okay, I have not seen anyone but local bands TWICE, but I have a huge list of people I have seen in concert! I have been to a LOT of concerts. In addition to these shows, I have seen lots of pub and bar type shows, and have NO IDEA which bands those were... some could be famous now and I never would know it.

    I saw local bands like MXPX, Modest Mouse, The Presidents of the United States of America, Mirah, and Brandi Carlisle more than once. I also saw the Dandy Warhols twice, but the first time I had never heard of them!

    Better Than Ezra, Everclear, Gin Blossoms, Bush, Korn, Tracy Bonham, No Doubt, Everclear, the Prodigy, Beck, Filter, Ice-T, the Posies, the Verve Pipe, The Offspring, Candlebox, Radiohead, the Dandy Warhols, Matchbox 20, GusGus, Crystal Method, Calexico, Brandi Carlile, Neko Case, Coldplay, Death Cab for Cutie, Eisley, The Flaming Lips, Jurassic 5, Jason Mraz,
    My Morning Jacket, Liz Phair, Tenacious D, Weezer, Blind Melon, Pink Floyd, Lenny Kravitz, Jane's Addiction, REM, Wilco, Black Eyed Peas.

    There are a lot of other people I have seen that I forgot- like I went to Live 8. I know Dave Matthews and Bon Jovi were there, but don't remember everyone else. As a kid, my parents took me to concerts and I can't remember the people we saw, except maybe Scorpions or something like that? When I was 12 the Beach Boys performed at Disney Land and I saw that.

    Oh sheeesh... I don't go to concerts much-went to a few as a teen)...so this will speak to my age.

    Barry Manilow (2 or 3 times)
    John Denver (2 or 3 times)

    Elton John once - and he was a jack-a**.

    Garrison Keiller (Prairie Home Companion) a few times... sitting out on the grass of the Ravinia Festival (north of Chicago), having a beautiful picnic with adult family...then lying back on a blanket and listening to the show while watching the stars. :)
    What memories.

    Actually.... ANY concert venue at Ravinia is wonderful!

    ****


    Oh wait... i see people listing Christian artists... NOW I can keep up.

    Chris Tomlin twice (My absolute favorite) - Once with Matt Redmond
    David Crowder... oh four/five times?
    Darlene Zschech..a few times
    Third Day... twice
    WANT to see Casting Crowns..but always miss them.

    ****

    Sesame Street Live/Disney on Ice/the Circus...more times than I ever care to remember.

    I've never been to a music concert in my life. I don't like any musicians/singers that much.

    However, if I could WIN tickets, I guess I wouldn't mind seeing Celine Dion or a variety of popular R&B singers.

    My BF loves contemporary Christian singer, Michael W. Smith & went to a concert long ago.

    I prefer other performing arts events, such as musicals, the ballet, pro tennis matches, figure skating shows.
