Concerts

Discussion in 'Sound Off' started by treehugger, Feb 4, 2006.

  1. OK, all you current/former concert goers, hunting and fishing obsessed outdoor folk I see many references to your music of choice on here and what you listen to on the radio. It's time to list all the bands you've seen in concert (if you can remember them through all the purple haze...aka hippie lettuce afterburn, beer, and jack daniels) in your lifetime. The lists should be interesting. Here is my list, some bands I've seen more than once.

    Styx
    Mahogany Rush
    Ozzy Osbourne
    Ted Nugent
    REO Speedwagon
    Tom Petty
    The Romantics (please forgive me)
    Boston
    .38 Special
    Charlie Daniels
    Pat Travers
    Marshall Tucker Band
    Firefall
    Willie Nelson
    Chris Ledoux
    Travis Tritt
    Sawyer Brown
    Trish Yearwood
    Tracy Lawrence
    Loverboy (please forgive me)
    Van Halen
    Foghat

    Cheap Trick
    The Cars
