Bands I've Seen Live

I’ve been thinking for quite some time about trying to compile a list of all the bands I’ve seen live over the years. I’ll put these in order as much as possible. I plan to keep adding to this as I recall past shows and attend more in the future. I have a ticket stub book, so I’ll include the dates and other details for those I have. Some of these are special in that the bands have since split up, are no longer touring, and/or some members have passed away. You can find videos from a lot of these shows on my YouTube channel. Here we go:
