    One of the few prominent groups I was able to see more than once. (Twice in '85, once in '86).

    I suspect we've been at the same show at RedRocks a few times. My next one is My Morning Jacket.

    I saw Bishop Briggs down in KC a couple of summers ago, and she was really good. Her voice is honestly just incredible - but she doesn't look at all how you'd expect her to from the power of her voice.

    I can only think of a handful that I would have wanted to see, but have not:

    Stevie Nicks (solo)
    Fleetwood Mac
    Journey (with Steve Perry)
    Elton John

    Am thankful that I was able to go to a Dolly Parton concert a few years back in Minneapolis. Going to the CMA Awards in 2010 and 2011 allowed me to see several people perform live who I may not have ever otherwise seen, such as Loretta Lynn and Lionel Richie.

    I suspect you're correct. We have three more shows at RR this summer - Cody Jinks, Tedeschi Trucks and then Jason Isbell in September.

    Last July we were at the Trampled by Turtles concert and ran into Sage Rosenfels.

    How awesome was that? I spent the whole time leading up to the concert near a makeshift fire pounding brews in the cold rain. Once myself and three other friends made it in the gates we proceeded to slide down the hill (which by then was one giant mud slide) towards the stage and all got separated. A couple of my friends made it to the mosh pit. I spent the concert clinging to a retaining wall because it was the only stable ground I could find right away.

    We brought our tents to camp nearby, but the grounds where such a mess after the concert we just said fudge it and we drove back 6 hrs to Ames that night. Rolled into town around 5 or 6 am.

    Certainly one of my favorite memories of college.

    Would have loved to see Pink Floyd, but would definitely settle for David Gilmour.... that would be awesome.

    I've seen two bucket list people in the last month---Tony Bennett and Paul McCartney. I've seen Garth and Adele and they were both on there.

    I'd like to see Springsteen and Elton John too.

    I’ve seen 4 of my top 5, so I’ll go with the top 5 I haven’t seen, in no order.

    1. Simon and Garfunkel (this will never happen)
    2. Fleetwood Mac
    3. RHCP (not a huge fan but have heard they’re awesome live)
    4. Die Antwoord (going this year!)
    5. Childish Gambino

    Tops that I’ve already seen that would have been on the list is The Killers, Paul McCartney, the Black Keys, Foo Fighters, Todd Snider.
