Not many, all female. I can't stand listening to men sing. Except Sting. ("A Thousand Years" from "The Red Planet" soundtrack is fantastic, and his Feyd Rautha was one of the only redeeming factors of Lynch's Dune).

Debbie Gibson (1990, I was 16)
Paula Cole (1993 or 1994, small show at my university)
Sarah McLachlan (twice in 1997, once opened by Barenaked Ladies (the band), they were hysterical)
Vonda Shepard (1998, small show, just a few hundred, front row)
Sarah Brightman (don't remember the year)
Sara Gazarek (2005)

I'd still love to see Garbage. Shirley Manson is ravishing!

My first concert was Alice Cooper in 1975. Here are some of the high lights and what I can remember (lol) of who I have seen.

Led Zeppelin
The Stones on opening day of there 81 tour in Philly. Journey and George Thorogood were the opening acts.
Peter Frampton
Neil Young
The Who
Chuck Berry
Jerry Lee Lewis
The Allman Brothers
The Greatfull Dead
David Bowie
The Kinks
The Clash
Bob Dylan

I would have say my favorite concert of all time was "Live Aid" In Philly in 1986. It started at I think 8:00 am. One funny thing I remember about that show was seeing Black Sabbath at 10:00 AM. I do not think Ozzy has been up that early ever since then.
But all in all it was great to see all these different acts play there three best songs and then the next act played.

I would have loved to have seen Boston in concert. I wonder if they sounded as good in person as they did on their albums.

With all the layers in their music, especially Delp's harmonies, it's hard to see how they could have.

What do you say cool_mommy?
