Who Else Have You Seen?

If this thread must be moved, then let it be moved. Dunno if this is the right place to put it. I have seen a thread like this before a while ago and wanted to start a new one. Who else have you all seen besides U2 and their opening acts?
For me.... Spoken Word and rallies included....

Third Eye Blind, Aerosmith, KISS, Goo Goo Dolls, Bob Dylan, Saliva, 3 Doors Down, Puddle of Mudd, Nickelback, Thornley, Fuel, Tantric, Bill Cosby, Lewis Black, Henry Rollins, George W. Bush, John Kerry, John Edwards, Mark Wills, Stephen King, Colin Mochrie, Brad Sherwood, Tim Reynolds, Weird Al Yankovic, The Pope, Vanessa Carlton, Even All Out, Automatic
Black, Barenaked Ladies, Butterfly Boutcher, Gavin Degraw.... a whole lot more.... A bunch more.... Can't think of all right now.... A lot more than once.... And now for you all....

i've never seen u2.

i've seen a lot of bands, some of them multiple times. i'm not going to try to list them all, it would be insane. i'm not bragging, it just would be. i like music.

I've never seen U2 either
I have seen Billy Idol, The Birthday Massacre, and this band called Aphasia who did an awesome cover of Bullet the Blue Sky.

Butterfly Boucher is amazing. I have a feeling where you saw here was a bit out of context. I saw her open for Sarah McLachlan and was mildy impressed. Needless to say I bought the album and was blown away.

Best Album I Bought Last Year (Including HTDAAB)

I lived in Nashville for a while and saw her do some club shows. She is unbelieveably talented.

Give her a second listen.

she was extremely out of context, and it really showed in her complete lack of stage presence.

her music also hurt my ears.
