    Which Musical acts would you pay to see live?

    As I'm getting older, I've come to realize that I don't actually NEED to see so many concerts anymore. Most just don't do it for me.

    When I was 18, 19 (or younger) going to a concert was a way to have an awesome night out, hanging with the boys. It didn't really matter who we were seeing or how well they played live.

    Now that I'm older, I've become MUCH more selective about the groups I will actually pay to see.

    Acts I would pay top-dollar to see live:
    Rush (duh)
    Radiohead
    Tool
    U2
    Elton John
    Billy Joel
    Nine Inch Nails
    Dream Theatre
    Porcupine Tree
    Foo Fighters

    Acts I would pay to see if I had friends going who talked me into it:
    They Might Be Giants
    Dave Matthews Band
    The Cure
    The Eagles
    REM

    Acts I saw in the past that I wouldn't really have any desire to see live again:
    Metallica
    Guns N' Roses
    Alice in Chains
    Rage Against the Machines

    So what about you? Have you become more selective of what acts you would spend your hard-earned money on???

    Re: Which Musical acts would you pay to see live?

    Top Dollar
    David Bowie (my all time favorite)
    The Who (which I am seeing in October)
    Rick Springfield (I have a soft spot for Rick)

    I would see any major band if my friends talked me into it and if they were paying.

    Saw before, no need to see again

    Re: Which Musical acts would you pay to see live?

    Frecky, I've seen Sugar Ray 5 times. I absolutely love them. I've met them all except Mark McGrath too (that boy keeps eluding me!). I have my favorite photo with Murphy (the bass player) in a frame on my dresser.

    Oh and I forgot to add I'd pay top dollar to see LIVE. I've seen them 3 times so far and they're just awesome.

    Re: Which Musical acts would you pay to see live?

    I seriously doubt a Floyd reunion will EVER happen. There's been rumors of talks for years but it comes down to those guys can't stand each other.

    Then again... I never thought The Police would ever reunite due to ego issues and look what happened.

    Bjork. hehehe duh.

    And if I could resurrect them, I'd love to see a Louis Armstrong and Ella Fitzgerald Concert. OMG. "WE'RE GOIN TO NEW ORLEANS SQUARE ON THE MARK TWAIN YESSSSSSIRRR!"

    And Janis Joplin.
