    What five music acts would you want to make sure you've seen live before you die? (You can already have seen them, I suppose.)

    My music bucket list was to finally see a concert at Red Rocks. Did it this summer. Everyone needs to go there once, it is incredible.

    I saw Tenacious D during their tour for the first album, and it was exactly what you would want it to be!

    Sadly I had the chance to see a few and didn't due to circumstances and stupidity, and now they aren't with us:

    Bowie
    Stevie Ray Vaughn
    Prince

    Would love to see these two acts again.
    Oingo Boingo
    R.E.M.

    another music topic, which has been discussed I think is a venue bucket list.

    Because I'm old, here's my list of bands I never saw, but always wished I had:

    1. Pink Floyd
    2. Led Zeppelin
    3. The Who (especially back when they would smash their instruments at the end)
    4. Uriah Heep
    5. Journey (when Steve Perry was with them)

    Hmmm........am I dating myself? :rolleyes:

    1. Red Rocks (done, and I'd happily go back.)
    2. Ryman Auditorium
    3. Gorge Amphitheatere
    4. Grand Ole Opry
    5. Carnegie Hall

    I thought about it. It was either that or Carnegie Hall to round out the five. You could also make a case for the Greek Theater - every bit as beautiful as the Hollywood Bowl and three times smaller in terms of seating capacity.

    edit: Oh, and the Cavern in Tennessee just for the sheer novelty of it. An underground amphitheater? Yes, why not.

    May not be an impressive list but I'm not a huge concert guy anyways

    Garth - seen
    George Strait - seen
    Steve Miller Band - just saw them finally
    Eric Church
    Carrie Underwood

    like jbindm had on his list the Grand Ole Opry is one place I want see some day, possibly the Ryman too. I've seen a bunch of other artists of various genres already, those 5 just happen to be the more iconic ones I could think off first when I came up with it. I'm sure Eric and Carrie will be touring for a long time still so not in a rush to see them really.

    Not sure I have a big bucket list, but my biggest claim to fame would be seeing Rage Against the Machine at Alpine Valley in '07. That was incredible.

    2. Willie Nelson - 'Whiskey River'
    3. MGMT - 'Destrokk'

    Unfortunately my first 2 would require bands getting back together:

    1) White Stripes
    2) Rage Against the Machine

    After that, I'd take a pretty drastic turn to #3, Neil Young. Don't know why, just feel like that's something I'd need to see.

    I'd round it out with

    4) Pearl Jam
    5) Paul McCartney
