Stevie Ray Vaughan and Double Trouble!
I was lucky enough to see STEVIE RAY VAUGHAN in July 1990, only a few weeks before his untimely death.  SRV opened for JOE COCKER, but in trying to pin down online the likely date I saw STEVIE , I learned that they swapped opening and closing spots (which makes sense).  It was the then Garden State Arts Center (now PNC arts center) and I've seen many acts there.  But I haven't yet pinned down the likely date for one of the greatest shows I have ever seen.  Though I had a STEVIE album and loved him and his new hot coolness, I was really at that show to see JOE COCKER who was as awesome, stunning, unnerving, disgusting and thrilling as I'd hoped he would be!!  Both acts: bruising blues, stunning artistry, mesmerizing perfection.

Billy Joel
At intermission of a NY show, I slipped through a wall of huge nearly seven foot guys, put my hand on BILLY JOEL's shoulder and said to his stunned expression: "Mr. Joel, you're wonderful!"  He responded: "Uh, thank you!"

Much later I realized MR. JOEL was not happy with his flank of six HUGE bodyguards.   TeddyR

Do bands who are still around count? For example, I'd give anything to see Killing Joke live - which is cool cause their original lineup is now recording and touring, but they'd never play in my neck of the woods.  Bluesad
I think it would've been cool to see Cliff-era Metallica back when they were still making good music. Ah well.
I'd love to have seen Swans circa their Filth era just so I could throw up along with the rest of the crowd from the sheer volume.  Smile I think seeing James Brown would've been awesome. I watched one of his shows on TV one night and it blew me away. Almost forgot Skinny Puppy. They're still at it, but again, never get to see them in my area.  Bluesad
EDIT: The God Machine. Amazing overlooked band if there ever was one.

I still kick myself for turning down a chance to see U2 in Austin back in '01.

Oh yeah, baby..I got to see Metallica on the "Kill 'Em All For One" tour with NWOBHM legends Raven, with a budding young Anthrax along for the ride back in '83.  Raven was quite a deal in their day and Metallica should thank them for giving them their first big touring break. 

Hey Lars, how about returning the favor to the 3 Newcastle nuts who gave you a chance?

Anyhow, another band I wish I got to see live was TANK.

Here's a whole show from 1981, enjoy!

1. Walking Barefoot Over Glass
2. Some Came Running
3. Crazy Horses - 45 Version
4. Used Leather (Hanging Loose)
5. Power Of The Hunter
6. Filth b***h Boogie

Stones just did some shows here in Philly a month ago. Ticket prices should've been lower. I am not rich.

My wife and I saw the Rolling Stones at Gillette Stadium a few years ago.  I am not a big Stones fan, but it was the greatest concert I have ever attended.

    Earth is visited by a GIANT ANTIMATTER SPACE BUZZARD! Gawk at the amazingly bad bird puppet, or chuckle over the silly dialog. This is one of the greatest b-movies ever made.
