Re: A to Z of bands you have seen Live

This was hard for my ravaged brain. Especially galling to have to sub a local, short-lived band here and there (but bands that did tour nationally and released albums).
As God is my witness, maybe more will come to me and I can update. I don't go out to see live music much anymore, but this makes me want to, Apologies for the formatting.

Ash, Daniel

Beastie Boys

Cocteau Twins

David Bowie

Echo & The Bunnymen

Flaming Lips

Galaxie 500

Heatmiser

Imij

Joe Jackson

Khruangbin

Love And Rockets

My Bloody Valentine

New Bad Things

Ozzy Osbourne

Phoenix

Q

R.E.M.

Spiritualized

Throwing Muses

U

V

Wedding Present

X (Does John Doe solo count?)

Yo La Tengo

Z

Loving the responses. Limiting it to one means as mentioned you go for weirdest or most famous. My one for both is Michael Jackson. Cork Ireland 88 I think.
