I wouldn't know were to begin, I can say that my bedroom door at my moms house when I was like 18 was almost completely covered with concert ticket stubs (and they were not very big back then). I also would think that bands that became popular that played clubs in LA would count (the Starwood in Hollywood would have 3 acts every Friday and Saturday) some bands in the 70's & 80's that become big names were commenly playing the Hollywood club scene, examples the Bangles, Devo, English Beat, Talking Heads, and many more that I would have to think about...I will try to come up with something.

I have never enjoyed being in big crowds of people, so my list of big-name concerts is very short:

the kinks (late 60s)
the hollies (late 60s)
weather report (1975)
rockpile (1976)
bob marley and the wailers (1977)
henry cow (1977)
graham parker and the rumour (1980)
zappa plays zappa (2006)
bob dylan (2006)
jethro tull (2010)
procol harum (2010)

however, throughout the 70s-90s, I must have attended approximately 250 small venue concerts, with numerous swedish jazz/rock/blues bands.
also, some 20-25 classical (and more mordern) music concerts.

I really regret that I never grabbed the chance to see zappa, though...

These are the ones I remember.
The first was Devo
and then, in no particular order...
Billy Bragg
Captain Beefheart
Alex Harvey and the Electric Cowboys
Kraftwerk (2x)
The Residents (3x)
Snakefinger's Vestal Virgins
Zappa (88 Tour)
Tuxedomoon (3x)
Alice Cooper
Blaine L. Reininger (3x)
Laibach
Steven Brown
Fred Frith (2x)
Ginger Baker
The Muffin Men w/ Ike Willis
John Zorn
David Bowie
Les Negresses Verts
The Cure
Nina Hagen
Rory Gallagher
Pink Floyd
Roger Waters
Pere Ubu (2x)
David Byrne (2x)
Einstürzende Neubauten

There was a worrying period I went through, when I always saw a performer on his last tour. This happened with Alex Harvey, Snakefinger (who died about two weeks after I saw him) and Zappa. Fortunately for the performing world, I now have two kids and hardly ever get to go to concerts anymore...

When, where, and what did you think Doug? I saw them twice in LA and although I liked them, I was totally onboard after their concert as the lead act at the Palladium in either '79 or the early '80's. I always thought that it was a great live show for a guy with stage frieght.

I saw XTC on March 11, 1980. I had gone "off" live concerts for awhile, but even though it was "standing only" I really enjoyed myself, dancing around with the crowd. I tried seeing another group 2 weeks later, enjoyed them, and found I was back in "concert mode" once more!

Location: The Dangerous Kitchener
The Agnostic Mountain Gospel Choir - an awesome band from Alberta
Alice Cooper x4
Bachman-Turner Overdrive
Bob Dylan
Bob Log III
x2 - a one man band. Google 'Boob Scotch'
Buddy Guy x3
Chicago - my room-mate and his friend had 4 tix and no dates, so my friend & I agreed to go on the condition that we also got busfare and a mickey of vodka each for our trouble. All I remeber about the show was having to move every time my friend threw up on the people in front of us.
Country Joe & the Fish
Dr John
- heard part of a show
The Forgotten Rebels x3
Gowan - he opened for a band that I wanted to see. All I remember was that he leapt about the stage like a baboon on crack.
Grateful Dead x10 or 15 - can't quite recall for some reason
Henry Rollins - speaking tour
Jethro Tull x3
Jim Cuddy - of Blue Rodeo
Kenny Wayne Shepherd
Kim Mitchell
x4 - used to be Max Webster.
Koko Taylor
The Kinks
Mavis Staples
Meatloaf
- my buddy was his familys' bodyguard on some made-for-tv movie so we got backstage passes and all that jazz. I got him to sign my Rocky Horror soundtack album.
Mel Brown - a few times at local bars and twice as a guest onstage with Buddy Guy.
Nash the Slash - saw him at a bar called Mrs Robinsons which subsequently blew up and burned down after a car crashed into the gas meter. (not on that night though)
Neil Young x3
Pink Floyd x2
Roger Waters x2
Rolling Stones
Ronnie Hawkins
- at Trent Uni at a Ride For Sight party.
Rush
Sha Na Na
Shuffle Demons
x3
Steppenwolf
Steve Strongman
Sting
- opened for the Dead once. Terrible acoustics.
Tom Petty x2
Trooper - saw them at Lulus just before it closed.
Watermelon Slim
Zappa Plays Zappa
10,000 Maniacs



There's more but my brain refuses to cooperate any further until I feed it.

I too much prefer small venues when I can. Despite the fact (or perhaps because of the fact) that large crowds give me issues I have regained consciousness or awareness way too many times in the middle of one.
