Re: A to Z of bands you have seen Live

Since it's getting towards the end of the year, I thought I'd post the bands that I saw in 2023, 192 bands from 30 different countries. Even with that many bands, I still wasn't able to get all of the letters of the alphabet this year, although I will see Queensryche, Quiet Riot and Y&T next March, so I'll knock those out early. X & Z will be the hard ones for 2024, just looking at what I have already purchased, I have 22 of the 26 letters of the alphabet.

D - Danzig, Dark Funeral, Dark Tranquillity, Dear Mother, Death Angel, Delain, Despised Icon, Destruction, Dethklok, Distant, Dope, Dragonforce, Dropout Kings, Dying Fetus, Dying Wish

Are you deaf yet?

I haven't seen 192 gigs in the past two decades and my tinnitus drives me crazy some days. (My lifetime total is probably over 300, though, counting local bands at bars.)

Thought only a couple would have Q. Looks like quite a few of us have seen Queensryche. I could have had L just this week. I wanted to go see Lindsey Stirling last week but tickets were outrageous just for the nosebleed.

I wear ear plugs

The exact number for me is 51 club shows, 8 days on metal cruises, 224 different sets, 192 different bands. So 32 sets were the same band on different days (cruise + tour, spring tour + fall tour, two different cities same tour, etc). None of the 192 bands were local bands.

But yeah, this is the first year that I decided to keep track of all of the bands individually, I have records of the shows I've attended (43 in 2022), but have no idea the number of bands. I'm not even sure this year I would have alphabetized the list without seeing this thread.

As of right now, I only have one more show, Zakk Sabbath with Native Howl opening, so I'll finish at 52 shows, 2 cruises, and 226 sets and 194 different bands. I told myself I'd step back a little bit next year, but I already have two cruises, a festival and another dozen shows booked, so realistically I'm already over 100 bands that I'll see from just the first 5 months.

Is it obvious that most of my concert-going was in the 80s-90s? I'll have to think about it more to see if I can remember any others I saw that would fill some of the gaps.
