My Concert List

Last weekend I added to my list of concerts I've been to. Here's how it looks:

Neil Diamond (Los Angeles, with my family,1980s)

The Beach Boys (L.A., after a USC football game with my family, late 1980s)

Sixpence None The Richer (in London, w/ friends from BYU London Theatre Study Abroad, Spring 1999)

Tori Amos (Salt Lake City, w/ friends , October 1999)

Weezer (Las Vegas, w/Jed, Angela and our friend Kelly, 2001)

The Killers (Kansas City- or, technically Bonner Springs, KS, with Jed, 2009)

Weezer (College Park, MD at the University of Maryland, with Jed, 4/30/10)**

* We almost went to another Weezer concert in February or March, but the closest they got to us was Minnesota, which, actually isn't very close to Kansas at all. AND, we almost went to see Franz Ferdinand earlier in the week, but, it was a week night, we were already going to The Killers concert, and we'd booked and had cancel so many babysitters for Saturday night that it seemed impossible that we'd be able to find another
babysitter at all, let alone for a school night.
**Added later.
What's on your concert list?

Weezer played at the Arizona State Fair this year, of course we had just moved to Idaho, so I am bitter. Most of my concert attendance is Weezer, Dave Matthews Band, and John Mayer concerts. But the honorable mention goes out to New Kids on the Block and Tommy T in the early 90's!

Mine is not as cool as yours -

The Spice Girls
The Cardigans
Better Than Ezra
Sugar Ray
Lenny Kravitz
Goo Goo Dolls
Blink 182
Barenaked Ladies

There might be more but I can't remember. The best was definitely the Spice Girls.

I'd really like to know what the Killers were like in concert.
