Feels like it's time to update my list of concerts, as I've been to a few more by now. ^^

Hanson (Stockholm, Sweden 2005-04-13, the best one so far, I love them!)
Electric Banana Band (Örebro, Sweden 2005-08-28, outdoors, pretty good)
Plasma-Jet (Örebro, Sweden 2006-08-13, at NärCon, not the kind of music I listen to, but it was fun to see a "real japanese band" /wink.gif" style="vertical-align:middle" emoid=";)" border="0" alt="wink.gif" /> )
BWO (Karlskoga, Sweden 2006-08-27, really great show)
Electric Banana Band (Örebro, Sweden 2007-01-27, indoors, it was fun ^^ )
Tokio Hotel (Hannover, Germany 2007-05-05, my favourite band except for Hanson, the show was amazing!)
Ramsells, Emilia, Niklas Wahlgren, Danny, Ola, BWO (Örebro, Sweden 2007-07-25, at Rix FM Festival, really fun even though I don't like all of them, and great weather /wink.gif" style="vertical-align:middle" emoid=";)" border="0" alt="wink.gif" /> )

This weekend I'll see a couple more bands, and I plan to see Tokio Hotel again in October. /smile.gif" style="vertical-align:middle" emoid=":)" border="0" alt="smile.gif" />

I've been to Kanye West it was really kewl. But the best was Jay-Z and Rihanna. I'm a big Jigga fan. I dunno why but I seem to miss all the rock concerts, except Avril Lavigne if you would call it rock. Fallout boy came and I missed it. That SUCKS! I'm gonna try and go to the next one that I hear about, whenever it is.

Um, my most recent concert experience was in March. I saw Ayabie [Japanese band]
Here's my list XD Japanese bands first.
Dir en grey - 4 times, in Chicago, camped out 24 hours give or take, '06, '07, '07, '08
D'espairsRay - once, in Chicago, camped out 20 hours, '08
MUCC - once, in Chicago, camped out 20 hours, '08
The Underneath - once, in Chicago, camped out 20 hours, '08

Coheed and Cambria - once, in Indianapolis, '07
Tiger Army - once, in Indianapolis, '07
Drop Dead Gorgeous - once, in Indianapolis, '07
Big D and the Kids Table - once, in Indianapolis, '07
Gallows - once, in Indianapolis, '07
The Toasters - once, in Indianapolis, '07
Kansas - once, in Bilouxi, '05
Less Than Jake - once, in Indianapolis, '03
Walls of Jericho - twice, Indianapolis '06/'08
36 Crazy Fists - once, in Indy '08 - crazy fun circle pit! My chin and left foot are bruised now! X3
Underoath - once, in Indy '08
Dragonforce - once, in Indy '08 - saw this hilarious/pretty guy flailing around on the lawn
Disturbed - once, in Indy '08
Slipknot - once, in Indy '08

aaand, the concerts I'm not really proud of

Good Charlotte - once, in Indianapolis, '03
New Found Glory - once, in Indianapolis, '03

Oh jeez, I've had so much fun going to the ones in Chicago! Once, the one with D'espairsRay, we almost died. @_@ It got down to -15 that night. We got there at 7:00 pm the day before so yeah, really really cold. Everyone thought we were crazy.
The second time with Dir en grey, I accidentally killed a rat. Hobos talked to us and liked us. XD And there was a legless guy in a wheelchair getting mugged by his caretaker. x_x
This last concert with Ayabie, apparently we became somewhat of a legend, because our friend who lives in Chicago told us that these girls heard of "those girls who always camp out" and they were going to try to beat us. Well, they didn't. XD And there was a hobo with a box of stale doughnuts who hung out with us. I swear he was slightly crazy.

funtimes

UPDATED! Recently went to the Mayhem festival.

Hm, I've only been to a few but there a PLENTY I've wanted to go to (and some I've had the chance but couldnt go :( )

Just last month I went to see the Plain White T's (with Mae & the Kung Fu Girls), I've been to Kenny Chesney (with Sara Evans, Sugarland, Brooks & Dunn, and Pat Green) and also Avril Lavigne quite awhile ago (with Simple Plan & Gob). Tomorrow night I'm going to see Celine Dion (yay!) and next month I am going to see Sugarland again...

I really want to go to Boys Like Girls/Good Charlotte/Metro Station but I dont know if thats gonna happen... :(

I see everyone else like a LONG list of concerts they have attended. I have not gone to any concerts. I guess I never show any interest into going. Nothing against the artists or bands, I just watch their videos on television and listen to their music on the Internet or the radio. It's good to see others going out and being active.

I've never been to a concert before - I almost went to a Panic!At the Disco one, but I got sick, so I couldn't go. Nickel****'s supposed to be coming to my state in like a month or so, but I don't think I'm going to be able to go. X_X

I've been to two concerts.
the first one was Edgefest, which is hosted by my favourite radio station.
I don't remember all the bands but a few were
flyleaf
jimmy eat world
social distortion
Plain white tees
hot hot heat
obadiah parker (i think he's considered a local band....)
and some pretty good local bands.

The other concert was a Good Charlotte (favourite band), Metro Station, The Maine, and Boys Like Girls.
It was amazing.

Really? I would have killed to see Alanis live! I love her =)

I have tickets to see Pink this upcoming tour. I'm super excited about that, I know it's gonna be amazing. She's such a great performer.

Has anyone heard of a guy named Jay Brannan? I just saw him in concert last week. He's definitely the singer/songwriter type but he puts on a really great show.

3 Doors Down
A Perfect Circle
Biffy Clyro (x3)
David Ford (x4)
Easyworld (x4)
Elbow
Feeder (x6)
Goo Goo Dolls
InMe
Keane
Nine Inch Nails
Oceansize (x3)
Placebo
Powderfinger
Silversun Pickups
Smashing Pumpkins
The Drones
The Living End
Turin Brakes
Two Gallants
Wir sind Helden
