AC/DC is likely going to start recording a new album in May and will likely do a 40 city tour to celebrate 40 years as a band.  I haven't bought an AC/DC album since Razor's Edge in 1990...but I haven't ever seen them live.  I will have to find a way to see them if this tour comes together.


Saw DIO On tour with the scorpions and deep purple a few years back..not long after that he got cancer and sadly died from it.  It wasn't him in his prime, but at least I can say I saw him.

as a resident of the Seattle area, most of my 'wished' list is based on the bands that were popular before I was old enough to watch live/or see before some member's death.  I would have loved to see the early stages of Seattle's grunge scene with Mother Love Bone, Nirvana and Alice in Chains (Layne) and those still active, like Soundgarden.  I've seen Pearl Jam but would love to see them again. 

outside of those, I have a lot of bands that I would love to see, were time and money freely available.

I'd have loved to have seen Oingo Boingo in concert.  Sadly that's obviously not gonna happen now without some reunion tour.  :/

Beastie Boys - clearly can't happen with the full crew anymore, and I would have preferred to see them 20 years ago
Tom Waits - still a small chance, but he's getting old and his concerts sell out immediately
Tool - never had a chance to get tickets, hopefully after their new album

Saw them on tour with Metallica and Faith No More.  Was pretty awesome, though not technically the original lineup as they already had the new drummer.

Beastie Boys would probably be my number one answer as well.  I've seen Tool and they were great.

I'd also have killed (pun intended) to see Death with Chuck Schuldiner and Christian Death with Rozz Williams.

I second Curve and Tom Waits and Beastie Boys (came so close to see them 3 times... frown)

Wednesday I'm going to see Cibo Matto biggrin In recent months I've seen Peter Murphy doing all Bauhaus, New Order doing 5 Joy Division songs as an encore, peter Hook & The Light giving his take on early New Order (which was awesome), Mudhoney, Melvins, Dead Milkmen, Depeche Mode, The Cure, Atoms For Peace, Queens of the Stone Age and Skinny Puppy.

I'm gonna see Gary Numan, Les Claypool, King Buzzo acoustic(!), and maybe even Neil Young in March. In May I'm going to Psych Fest, 3 days of obscure psychedelic bands.

I love Austin biggrin

Also in two weeks I'll be seeing Throwing Muses with Tanya Donnelly opening, that has a lot of potential to be a great show.

Never going to happen.

Quote
When asked during a 2007 phone-in interview on XETRA-FM if he ever had any notions of performing in an Oingo Boingo reunion, Elfman immediately rejected the idea and stated that in the last few years with the band he had begun to develop significant and irreversible hearing damage as a result of his continuous exposure to the high noise levels involved in performing in a rock band. He went on to say that he believes his hearing damage is partially due to a genetic predisposition to hearing loss, and that he will never return to the stage for fear of worsening not only his condition but also that of his band mates.

I'm seeing Skinny Puppy for the 5th time on Feb 26.  Of the hundreds of shows I've seen, SP puts on the best by a mile.

LOL I saw the thread title and was coming in to post about AC/DC.  I have seen over 250 live concerts, I absolutely live for the concert experience and Ive seen most of the big rock bands from The Allman Brothers to Zepplin but Ive never seen AC/DC.  They are right near the top of my concert bucket list.

My most recent cross offs was seeing The Wall, live.  While it wasnt Pink Floyd but Roger Waters, it was possibly the most amazing concert visually, I have ever seen.  If you get the chance to see it, do yourself a favor and do not hesitate.  Its worth every cent.

One of the few that I actually got to see.

I agree with the Oingo Boingo love.  By the time I discovered them they had stopped touring.

I saw Springsteen play Wrigley in September 2012, and it was completely awesome. The only blemish was that the Big Man was gone, but his nephew picked up the slack admirably.

Saw them twice. Also Genesis with Gabriel.

I saw a LOT of the headline acts of the 1970s and early 80s -- I daresay most of them -- but always kind of regretted missing Pink Floyd.

Yeah, it was my 3rd Puppy show- always a blast. I actually took my 15 year-old son who recently started considering them his favorite band in the last 6 months or so.

I'm a huge Martin Atkins fan, but never really got into Killing Joke. Which brings me to my next "wish I'd seen": Pigface (original lineup)

Pigface had an "original lineup"?  I always just considered them an ever-rotating group of rivetheads.

EDIT:  Speaking of Pigface, I just stumbled across this footage of Ohgr, Reznor, Atkins, and Jorgenson on stage together doing "Suck".  Early 90's, I would assume.

Then you're raising that boy right.  On the father son front and getting back to the first post, I took my dad to see AC/DC on their last tour.  Not my or his first time seeing them, but was fun to share with him now that I'm much older as they've always been his favorite band and at 60+ not something he'd go to on his own.  I also managed to get our tickets upgraded at the show too from nosebleeds to lower field!

Slight derail:  There was a guy at the Amon Amarth/Enslaved/Skeletonwitch show last week who had what I assumed to be his daughter there with him.  She was riding on his shoulders the entire night, and couldn't have been much older than 7 or 8.

I'm all for diversifying my kid's musical experiences, but a death metal show at 7 years old seems a bit much.  Not to mention that he didn't have any sort of hearing protection for her, and it was one of the loudest shows I've ever been to.

Yeah there's an appropriate age.  I was at a Korn show recently with my cousin (hey he had free tickets) and we sat up in the balcony and were next to a cool couple
who had brought their 16 or 17 year old son who was down in the mosh pit.  The dad was clearly and old mosher himself and kept a keen eye on his kid from up in the balcony while letting his kid run solo and not be totally embarrassed by the old man.  It was really rather cute.  That show had a really well run pit too, I saw someone
fall over and immediately a group formed a barrier around the guy that went down and someone helped him up and out.  There was a period of time around here when the moshpit went to complete shit so it was nice to see a well run one again.

That has been standard moshpit etiquette (for lack of a better term) for as long as I've been going to metal shows.  Maybe the nu-metal crowd is different animal though...

That show had a really well run pit too, I saw someone fall over and immediately a group formed a barrier around the guy that went down and someone helped him up and out. 

That has been standard moshpit etiquette (for lack of a better term) for as long as I've been going to metal shows.  Maybe the nu-metal crowd is different animal though...

Yeah it was when I first started going to shows, and then at some point the pits got overrun by assholes with no sense of etiquette, but they've seem to come back around.

I'll say Oingo Boingo too. 

When I was a senior in high school Oingo Boingo came to Houston to play a small club.  It was Valentine's Day weekend and I had a date with a girl I liked the night of the show.  A friend went to the show...
My date was not memorable in any way.  Oingo Boingo played a 3 hour show (Dead Man's Party tour). My friend met the band after the show and has the t-shirt signed by all of them.


Damn... I made the wrong choice.

I mostly wish I had seen bands in their prime...

Rolling Stones in 1972 (when I was -4)...
AC/DC w/ Bonn Scott in 1979...
Black Sabbath with Ozzy in 1972...
The Who in... I dunno, 1972.

I'm very, very glad to have seen the Hellacopters on their last US tour before breaking up.

Ohhh, good question. I'd have to say Beach Boys at their prime, not the shadow of a band that usually tours now, though I did see the touring band years ago. Would have loved to have been at the reunion about a year ago. Another band I'm very fond of is Nickel Creek. They went on hiatus about 5 years ago, and I thought that would be the end of that. I had never seen them in concert and really wished I could. Then just recently, they put out a new single, a new album's coming out, and they're touring again. Had been beginning to take it for granted that they'd never be back together, so it was a nice surprise, and there's always a chance I could end up seeing them.

Another in terms of similar circumstances are The Duhks. For several years, I'd been really into them. I'd even ask the organizer for our local folk music festival if it would be possible to bring them here, to which he stated it would be too expensive as they were too much in demand. Then the lead singer left the band, being replaced with another, did a tour and then announced a hiatus. More recently, there's been some activity with the original lead singer getting back together with the band and recording a new album. So, there's hope yet.

Also would have liked to see Carbon Leaf. Sadly, they seem to have tapered off.

This would probably top my bucket list of must see concerts...  Ive seen Pink Floyd and Ive seen Roger Waters (both more than once) but Ive never seen Pink Floyd with Roger Waters.  I would pay what ever they asked to see that show.

I'd add David Bowie to the list...especially since I had a chance to see him back in college and passed on it.  Was during the NIN/Bowie tour in the mid-90's, and I was a DJ at the campus radio station.  We got some free tickets to the show, but while I loved NIN, I wasn't really that into Bowie yet.  (This was Earthling/Outside-era Bowie, which is still my least favorite phase of his.)  I decided the 2 hour drive from Pueblo to Denver wasn't worth it just to see NIN as an opening act, so I skipped on the show all together.  Totally kicking myself over that decision, as I'm pretty sure I'd donate my left nut to see a Bowie/NIN show today.  frown

They did a great transition between NiN and Bowie for that tour.  The band members slowly swapping, and NiN doing a Bowie cover leading into Bowie doing a NiN cover.

I saw Bowie in his Thin White Duke years, right after Station to Station. He was in a huge arena in Detroit and I was way in the back. From where I stood, David Bowie was no more than 2 millimeters tall.

i've seen a lot of the bands on my own personal 'must-see' list (including the afore-lamented Curve and Bowie), but i would go for The Young Gods for sure. missed them opening for Ministry's 1995 tour.

also some others:
Brian Eno (in any capacity - missed a talk he did at some college in Vancouver BC a few years back)
pre-mid-80's Tangerine Dream
pre-geriatric Hawkwind
The Police
any King Crimson lineup
Syd Barrett's "The Pink Floyd"

Big Country were on my list, and i recently saw a new line-up with Mike Peters (of The Alarm) on vocals and Derek Forbes (of early-80s Simple Minds) on bass, and it was better than i could have hoped for.

they were my favorite band for years. i have seen them on every tour since Devotional (1993 - by far the best of them, but of course Alan Wilder was still in the band) and while my liking of of their post-SoFaD output is not so high, i still have to see them every time they come around. also, the fan base is fun - if ever there was a Grateful Dead or Phish or Jimmy Buffet for black-clad, moody angsty poetry-writing sexually-tortured 1980's art-school types, DM is that.

In summer 2007 I visited my best friend in Boston, and we got to see the Police on their fine reunion tour at Fenway Park, of all places. I still haven't gotten to see a baseball game there, only The Police. Sting's son (!) was the opening act. My brother got to see them in about 1980 or 1981 in Charlottesville, VA, well before they had become big in the states.

The same friend had planned to see Led Zeppelin in late 1979 at the Capital Centre in Largo, MD, but was of course derailed by drummer John Bonham's death just months before the show. So I'm sure he would tell you Led Zeppelin.

So much for that dream.  crybaby

Apparently Malcolm Young has had a stroke and the band is set to announce their retirement tomorrow.
