50 Concerts

OK, here are the rules. Test your memory and your love of live music by listing 50 artists or bands (or as many as you can remember) you’ve seen in concert. List the first 50 acts that come into your head. An act you saw at a festival and opening acts count, but only if you can’t think of 50 other artists. Oh, and list the first concert you ever saw (you can remember that, can’t you)?

I know I’ve been tagged with this a couple times, but it’s kinda silly for me to participate. Mainly because I keep track of every artist I see in lists both chronological and alphabetical, updated at least once a week. But I will share that the number of artists I’ve seen as of today (if I take out duplicates and repeats) is 1,144. If you want more details about my first show, watch this space, I’ve got a special post coming up after Labor Day.

I also won’t be participating in the song shuffle meme, because I’m the luddite who still had his music on CDs.
