So I'm talking to my friend and we are reminiscing about who we saw perform live so I decided to ask who SG has seen.
I got to see -
The Rolling Stones
Lamb of God
Single Bullet Theory
So, who has Sg seen perform live?
Comment has been collapsed.
Arch Enemy (I don't like it, but they came along with Kreator and Helloween)
And a couple of chilean bands:
Drake (not the one from Canada)
You got me intrigued about Sanguinius Terra so I looked it up. I like it. Thanks.
Sadly, they split up already :(.
I'll also list my favorite song from each concert. I've seen:
Linkin Park (Wretches and Kings)
Megadeth (A Tout le Monde)
Alice in Chains (Dam That River)
Nightwish (The Islander)
Amaranthe (Drop Dead Cynical)
Delain (Here Come the Vultures)
Tarja (Until My Last Breath)
Powerwolf (We Drink Your Blood)
Amon Amarth (Twilight of the Thunder God/Raise Your Horns)
Highly recommend you check those songs out if you don't know the bands!
I envy you for being able to see Linkin Park live. Wretches and Kings is one of my favorites from A Thousand Suns.
Only 3 so far:
Godspeed You! Black Emperor
Of Monsters and Men
Of Monsters and Men! What a great band to see live! I discovered them in 2013, when they opened for Franz Ferdinand in a free gig and instantly loved them. ♥
Most recently (today), I went to see Clutch play live (again). Which entailed traveling from the jam room to the living room to watch their show online. ;)
Rival Sons (twice)
The Tallest Man On Earth
Red Hot Chili Peppers
The Dead Weather
At The Drive-In
Florence + The Machine
And many more (big names like Pharell Williams, Wu-Tang Clan etc.) but I've seen them briefly so I didn't include them.
Crosby Stills and Nash
Red Hot Chilli Peppers
And a bunch of smaller venue shows, too many to list.

Quite a few now, but the most notable is that I'm glad I got a chance to see Chris Cornell. Dude belted it out so damn effortlessly, had his family on stage with him, and just had a good vibe that day. I compare most male singers to him now.
Also got to see The Prodigy a while back, and thankful for that.
Most recently, Halestorm on a few occasions as they're the girlfriend's favorite band. Girl's also got a damn powerful voice. Not as effortless as Mr. Cornell was, but still a great one to see live. Too many others to list while on mobile, especially since doing Coachella for a couple of years way back when it was only a two day festival.
Haven't got back to the music festival scene in a while though, and kinda miss it. Good times, good friends, terrible parking! :)
(Since you have metal bands in your OP, Opeth in a smallish club in LA! Was hoping to hear a few more songs than they did, but still a good show.)
Prodigy? I am jealous.
I caught part of a small live show Halestorm did at a radio station, before their concert that day, and they were very impressive.
Pantera / Sepultura / Biohazard (first concert, one concert, was awesome)
Seven Mary Three
Brutal Truth and other bands I can't recall, I think Immolation was among them
Nine Inch Nails / Jane's Addiction
Rob Zombie / Fear Factory / Monster Magnet
Tenacious D at Blizzcon
Ozzy Osbourne at Blizzcon
Foo Fighters at Blizzcon
probably forgetting some, but have not been to too many concerts.
Pantera, Sepulture, Biohazard lineup is killer. Wish I could have seen that, very nice first concert.
Yeah, it was an amazing experience. Far Beyond Driven tour, the album was about 3 months old, June 1994 Albany, NY =)
I've heard many good things about that tour, super jealous :P
Biohazard stole the show even though they went on first, I became a HUGE fan after that night! But it was a great show all around, all 3 bands right at the height of their popularity =D A guy in front of me caught one of Vinnie's drumsticks he tossed at the end, I bought it off im for the entire 20 dollars I had to spend. It's kind of sad, I was still in school, and I was offered a literal back end of a van in cases in beer for it ;P I told my dad, who was my ride, and he looked at me and, being my dad as he was, said "WHY DIDN'T YOU MAKE THAT DEAL?" LoL
Ended up trading it to a friend some time later for Dragon Warrior 1-4 on the NES and a couple other semi rare rpg's on NES ;P
Heh, the first concert that my Mom took me to was in Albany - though that was Billy Joel.
The first concert that I went to by myself (well, with friends) was a The Living End / Offspring concert in Troy in 1999.
Nice! I moved from NY about a year after that, I'd love to go back someday. Always had a good metal and grindcore scene in the area.
Bad Religion (twice)
Fall Out Boy
Green Day (twice)
Less Than Jake
The Living End
Presidents of the United States of America
Reel Big Fish
Rise Against (twice, because they opened for both Offspring and Bad Religion)
Three Days Grace
Third Eye Blind
Others that I caught as opening acts or parts of larger festivals and don't remember.
Wow, I didn't realize it was that many. I guess I used to go a lot more when I was younger.
I've rather lost interests in going to concerts in recent years, just like I've lost interest in going to the movie theater - it's too expensive, too loud, and I'd rather just enjoy it from the comfort of my home.
I was supposed to go to a Rage Against the Machine concert this summer - as they're one of my favorite bands, enough to overcome my disinterests in concerts - but that's not happening now.
Presidents of the USA gave easily the best live performance I've ever seen. Those guys put on a hell of a show, I love them.
I dunno, it's been a while.

Pixies are great. Had lots of shows I was looking forward to this year, very bummed about them being cancelled and postponed :(
lol, I watched your list and wanted to ask if you are from Russia, because I saw a patten of concert I've been myself
...then I saw your nickname))
Все так по обоим пунктам))
Haven't been to too many... but off the top of my head, I've seen:
Always wanted to go see Pink Floyd for their famous laser light shows, but life has a habit of getting in the way. 😑
I never been much into going to concerts but think I saw many bands live, due to visiting Rheinkultur about 10 times.
H-Blockx, 2002, was very memorable.
Artists only very rarely go to my country and I only go to concerts when I'm a really big fan of the artist (concerts are expensive compared to the median salary here), so I only have very few. Mine is also noticeably very different compared to most of the comments in this thread, haha. ^^;;
Almost got to see Taeyeon also, bought the ticket but sold it to someone else since I couldn't attend. I was out of the country for a competition when she had her concert here, and I am still terribly sad about that.
Kill The Noise
Joyryde which sucked blech
The Killers legs hurt so bad after it sucked and the show was meh.
Cold war Kids
How was the Riot show? Was it before or after Mark Reale passed?
RIOT is a duo no one is the ded
My bad, I thought you were referring to the heavy metal band called Riot that formed in 1975.
nope, dubstep and rock you should check them out ^_^
Way too many to list here. But I guess these are some of the highlights I can think of right now:
Far too many to list, but highlights include:

Pink Floyd on the Pulse tour
Styx before Mister Roboto ruined them

Great list! Have seen maybe a 3rd of those live plus quite a few other bands - Would take a while to remember them all.
Three on your list that would really like to see live: Opeth, Dream Theatre and Pain of Salvation. How were they? (I know the answer already btw - have seen vids :p) - but just wondered how they were for you?
Thanks for asking, I am glad to share. For starters I need to mention that it’s crucial whether a band is playing as a part of a festival/support, or having their own venue / being headliners. Interestingly enough, I have seen all these 3 bands that you asked in both situations and I think it is needless to say that those times when they were playing as a support band it was barely enjoyable to watch. So you should consider this if you really like some band and want to experience it at its fullest/the best, or you don’t mind to just see them perform - there are many times that some bigger gigs are the only chance to see some bands.
So, the times that I’ve seen these bands playing at their own concerts were great! Dream Theater was the most filing experience, you can expect a minimum of 2 hours and up to 3 hours of solid prog performance, it was epic. I also had the luck to watch Metropolis Pt. 2 at its entirety. I have only seen the old line-up of Pain of Salvation, kind of theatrical and Daniel Gildenlöw was very expressive on stage. I just remembered there was a fourth time that I’ve seen them at an unplugged concert. Opeth was another solid experience, Michael Ackerfield could keep the whole concert at his shoulders, dynamic performance - not in terms of motion, but voice.
One last comment regarding Pain of Salvation and Opeth. It’s a very long time since I’ve seen them and that means that the playlists cannot be the same anymore. I had the luck to see both at their peak (personal opinion) latest concerts at that time were “Be” and “Deliverance” respectively, I think there is some decline from that point for both, so it is a subjective issue of how much do you like their latest albums - which are probably going to have a wider representation.
I understand what you mean between seeing a good band in their own concert or as a supporting act and agree. I saw In Flames have a bit of a rough time with sound engineers at a festival - and Metallica lose some patients at another!
I've a few commercially released dvds -one of DT and the other of Opeth - both high quality and can only imagine how great it would have been have been there!
I've always thought of Daniel Gildenlöw and Michael Ackerfield as the respective heart and geniuses in their bands. Seeing them unplugged must have been great for you too. A shame the prog or technical side of metal does not have more exposure. They'ed have huge followings if more people knew that metal is often played buy extremely talented musicians, and is not just a noise as many suspect, lol.
In Flames is another example of how awesome playlist they had back at Clayman tour when I saw them (no matter what they’d play up to date) and how mediocre it would be now (at least for me).
Yep they are both brilliant minds and the core of their bands!
Nicely said, I have stumbled upon many people in the past being prejudiced that metal is just a growling noise.
Damn some nice lists here
I only have a disappointment list of concerts I didnt go to :D
