Liza Minnelli is going to be four hours away from me in a short while and I'm dying to go see her show. I'll find a way!! :p

I'm seeing Madonna in September and Shania Twain in Vegas. That's all I have planned for now..

I want to see Justice and never come back.

.. don't know anything about them but I saw half of their performance this year and it was so awesome, I wonder what it's like to see them on a venue, doing a full set.

Probably Rihanna too, because I know most of her songs and I've never been to a show by any pop star, the spectacle must be good (and so raunchy I guess).. I don't think I'd be as appreciative or impressed if I'd go to a Madonna show for example, so it better be someone I do appreciate in some degree.

I'd also like to see one of the Spanish/Latin American protest folk musicians at some point, like Silvio Rodríguez or Joan Manuel Serrat.. not really familiar with their music but it must be empowering and beautiful live.. though I really hate their.. 'thoughtful' fans.

Have seen: John Legend, 5 1/2 times (5 times as main act, 1/2 as opening act for Sade)..More to follow, Im sure.

Want to see: Madonna, but only for her old songs (but will settle for listening to it when my friends call me and hold their phones up towards the stage).

I'd love to see Linkin Park They were pretty much the first band I really liked, and I still know most of their old songs... Not too keen on their newest stuff, but listening to the oldies always brings some nice memories Same as Avril Lavigne

you an i have really similar taste. i've seen 4/5ths of your list also.

paul westerberg busted his hand so he wont be touring for a while, and i wouldnt count on him playing replacements stuff unless he gets really low on dough. pogues was one of the best shows i've ever gone to. shane actually broke his leg on stage and kept singing! the level of musicianship was just incredible. i see steve earle every time he comes to town. luckily he plays copperhead road every time.

i bought a ticket to see bob mould again in september. cant wait. he is playing copper blue, my fave album.

i remember very distinctly back in 2002 (my senior year in high school) Paul doing a surprise in-store in seattle and being extremely upset/bummed out that i had missed the show. but that's paul for ya. the closet i've come to the paul/the mats live experience is watching the Come Feel Me Tremble DVD, which while heartfelt and raw (almost too), obviously is not the same! oh and i saw Tommy Stinson with Guns'n'Roses but that was a joke.


I saw the Pogues a few years ago and enjoyed the music, in between getting showered with beer and slammed into. when i was younger that wouldn't have bothered me but now it's a huge bummer when you end up putting more energy in putting your guard than letting it down and letting the music take over, ya know.


i saw Bob Mould in 2002. it was pretty rad and the crowd uber chill but still appreciated Bob bringin the rock w/ the electro beats. i like his earlier solo stuff but the blistering intensity of his songs with Hüsker Dü blows his solo stuff out of the water. 'Chartered Trips' tears me up. thanks for the heads up on that Copper Blue tour, re-issue! it's still surreal to see Bob so cleaned up and ripped, total hottie :p

I've seen quite a couple of bands and missed on the opportunity of seeing quite a few more for being too lazy/poor. The one person I would really really love to see live and probably cry forever if I missed out of sheer lazyness if Fiona Apple. Alas, she never seems to come to Europe (and cancelled her Barcelona date for this year)
