  2. [...] This post by the Andersons inspired me to make a list of all the musical acts/musicians I’ve seen perform live. It’s not a long list, but there are some gems, for sure: [...]

  3. Coldplay was in there towards the top. I think it's cool to see who everybody has seen in concert.

    Here are a few more I forgot about- I had to break out the old ticket stubs.

    -Indigo Girls (free show in Atlanta)
    -Parliament Funkadelic (or just George Clinton, I don't remember- at the Spirit Fest).
    -Roger Waters (from Pink Floyd)
    -The Deftones (apparently they were at a Family Values tour we saw with Korn, I guess they sucked)

  8. Two more I just thought of:
    -Wilco (pretty much got booed off stage and tons of trash thrown at them at the Jayhawk Music festival before they were known)
    -Everlast (Jayhawk music festival)

    I'll probably keep thinking of more as the week goes on.

    Anybody else got any lists? I think this is awesome!
