Type O Negative but I never got to see them live before Peter died.

Marilyn Manson is my favorite living/touring artist. I’ve travelled all over the country and spent weeks at a time following his tours. I think I’ve seen him over 30 times, met him several times. DH and I met on tour following Manson, he has just cracked his 50th show.

Front and center of the mosh pit every show.

Fun thread! I go to a LOT of concerts; my Fiance does concert photography as a hobby and is a huge fan of music, so we spend the majority of our extra cash on concert tickets.

My favorite band is AFI (alternative/punk/rock), and I’ve seen them 4 times. The best show was the one I went to in February; they’ve been around since the 90s, and they played a large variety of their music, not just their most recent stuff.

I also really like Amanda Palmer/The Dresden Dolls (also alternative/punk/rock with a lot to say about politics). I saw The Dresden Dolls 3 times, including once in my high school auditorium, and I saw Amanda Palmer solo once. I support her on Patreon, so I see a ton of live shows online and other cool content.

Other highlights: Placebo, System of a Down, Deftones, Jimmie’s Chicken Shack/Jarflys, and Kimbra. And I’ll be seeing Rammstein, U2, and Depeche Mode this year.

Just saw Adele 2 nights ago and she was SO amazing! We were right up the front and everything about her was perfect. I think I’m in love 😍😭

I definitely hope to see her sing live again, even if I have to travel to London for it!

I don’t have a favorite band or artist. But I really like Thomas Rhett. I saw him many years ago prior to him getting really big. He opened for Toby Keith. He was great!!

Incubus 4 times- Seeing them again this summer

Coldplay 3 times- Seeing them again this summer

Florence and the Machine- Saw her last year and I legit cried!

Red hot chili peppers- So good live!

Slip knot 3 times- I love corey lol

Rammstein- Saw them last year for the first time and was amazed.  Seeing them again this summer

A Day To Remember and I saw them live in 2011 at Vans Warped Tour! Also, shoutout to the other bees who mentioned SOAD, AFI, Slipknot, and other punk bands!
