Crap, I can't remember most of the shows I've seen and it wasn't like there were that many or that long ago. A few I recall.

Metallic. And justice for all tour. Blowing up the stage seemed pretty cool at the time.

Pink Floyd. Possibly the last tour(?). I figured I had missed ever getting to see them live but finally got a chance. Would have been early 90's? I do know it was in Indy.

Saw plenty of other big stadium shows in the 80's/90's like Crüe, Aerosmith, Page/Plant, etc but now I avoid big venues. Some more recent stuff I've enjoyed:

Lyle Lovett and his Large Band - Mountain Winery in Saratoga

Cowboy Junkies - Mountain Winery and Yoshi's in Oakland

Paul Simon - the Greek in Berkeley

Willy Nelson - the Fillmore in SF

'06 Speed Triple
'96 Adventurer Cafe Racer
and a bunch of other stuff

To many to list. Started going to venues when i was 15 or 16as highschool freshmen. A buddy of mine met a worldly upper classman who suggested we go to Greenwich Village with him for some music. His name was Nick Tosches ( look him up). We went to the Cafe Wha and saw the Yardbirds and a bunch of other up and comers. Nick also knew where he could buy booze. Once we hit 17 we drove in and often went to the Filmore East Joplin, Tull etc. First mega concert 1967 was at the Singer bowl in NYC a 20k arena where the Who opened for the Doors. Saw Hendricks there also. Back in the day most venues were small.

Black Sabbath- college gym
Jefferson Airplane- college gym
Kinks- college gym
Iron Butterfly- college gym (longest inagata divita ever)
Led Zep- small stage Central Park NYC first album
Derick and the Dominos- small venue in Philly
Cream- MSG (caught one of Ginger Bakers drum sticks but someone snached it a few months later, if I find him it's going where the sun dont shine)
Stones numerous times ya yas the first I think
ZEP late 70's in a big arena (I was near a speaker tower and lost some hearing)
Did I mention Woodstock (my tickets are framed on my den wall)
After Woodstock a buddy and I did an xcountry road trip and saw CSN at theHollywood bowl
Then married life and kids but still squeezed in the Dead and Floyd and a few other
Come the 2k's and and my kid came of age. 3 Ozz Fests. Most memorable act was Marilyn Manson besides Ozzy. I even went to an Insane Clown Possy show and loved it. Ican even listen to some rap, go figure, I blame it on Nick.

That's an impressive list Kevin.

Damn, I forgot Black Sabbath at McNichols Arena in Denver - October 1976.

In college, back in the dark ages I went to these memorable concerts (as well as others that weren't memorable):
Chuck Berry
The Four Tops
Judy Collins

In my second childhood, I saw Styx and Foreigner at Madison Square Garden.
I saw Cheap Trick perform in a small auditorium. I saw Twisted Sister perform several times at a small local club. I saw The Roches perform in Greenwich Village at a small venue. In 1984 I saw Judas Priest perform at the Buddakan in Tokyo.

An old girl friend once dragged me to a Liza Minelli/Marvin Hamlisch concert and my wife and I saw the Captain & Tenille in Las Vegas. Both were surprisingly entertaining.

These days, I stick to classical music & haven't been to a rock concert in decades.
