Not that many, but from what I can remember:

Janet Jackson 2x
'N Sync (opened for Janet)
Tori Amos
Hanson 3x (soon to be 4x)
New Kids on the Block 3x

So yeah, it's a short list. There may have been other performers/opening acts at these concerts that I didn't mention because I didn't care about seeing them.

I don't know how many or how I could count individual bands from music festivals and Day On The Green's back in the day. It must be over 100 bands seen though.

My first proper concert was The Beach Boys at the Oakland Coliseum in 1974 when I was 15. My most recently was Paul McCartney (3rd time) closing out Candlestick Park last year. There have been a few classic rock cover bands since them but I won't count those.

My favorite was The Who, hands down.

Too many to list.....
But the unforgettable ones:

John Mayer (more than a few times)
Bruce Springsteen (same as above)
Jason Mraz

And Maroon 5 surprisingly, lol
Saw them when they first started & no one was really paying attention to them as they were opening....

Fantastic performance

Just one, and it was fairly recent: Ed Sheeran. But I will be attending a Sam Smith one at the same venue in August.

Tina Turner
Cyndi Lauper ( opened for Tina Turner)
Patti Labelle
Rolling Stones (3x, all at Dodger Stadium)
Michael Jackson
Daley ( I just saw him in June 2015. He was 3 hours and 43 minutes late but he sounds just like the record)
the Belle Brigade (at Amoeba Records, better than the record)
Al Green ( clowned while singing Love and Happiness, I hated it)
Aretha Franklin ( she pointed at the sky for the high notes)
Shirley Jones ( for a school assignment)
Marlena Shaw ( she was saucy)
Brenda Russell ( very forgettable)
Marvin Winans
Rick's Jambrosia (a local band in Los Angeles)
Caetano Veloso ( wondrous Brazilian singer)
Cesaria Evora( so grateful to have seen her, she died not long after)
Angela Bofill
Bobby Lyle ( double- billed with Angela Bofill)

Those are all I can think of. I want to see quite a few Brazilian singers: Gilberto Gil,Seu Jorge,Marisa Monte,Preta Gil,Milton Nascimento,Djavan and Ivan Lins. I would love to see the Rolling Stones and Caetano Veloso again.

I've really started going to A LOT more concerts in the last four months, and especially the last month. Shows since late March (only headliners listed) include:

*Manic Street Preachers
*Stone Temple Pilots (God, the guy from Linkin Park sucked, though he tried his best to fill Scott Weiland's shoes)
*Mac McCaughan (really good show by the Superchunk front man at the intimate Black Cat backstage)
*Richard Thompson (second time I saw him live, and like the first time I saw him, he was great)
*Mission of Burma (I have a feeling that was the last time I'll see them; I'm glad I got to see them live three different times)
*Foo Fighters (day-long, nine act concert at RFK Stadium on Independence Day - long but fun show)
*Devils Walk as Saints (local DC band)
*MOURN (really promising, very young group from Spain)
*Night Kitchen (another local DC band, though I liked the opener from Frederick, Heavy Lights, better)

I plan on seeing Cracker, Dinosaur Jr. (I'll bring my ear plugs this time), and Interpol before the end of July.
