APL's Concert Meme : UPDATED

Angry Pregnant Lawyer just posted a huge list of concerts she's been to. Here's my (somewhat shorter) list.

The Weavers
Holly Near (2 x)
Pete Seeger (lots)
Arlo Gutherie (2 x)
Rick Springfield (7th grade with my friend Lisa. Second row from the top on the upper balcony. The girls behind us had a banner that said, "We Love You Rick!")
Duran Duran
Bob Dylan/Tom Petty
Bonnie Raitt/Lyle Lovett
Red Clay Ramblers
Peter, Paul & Mary
Squeeze
Peter Gabriel
Hall & Oates
The Proclaimers
Sting
REM/10,000 Maniacs
Dave Matthews Band/Freedy Johnston
Laurie Anderson (2x)
The Flying Karamazov Brothers (7 x. Does this count as a concert? They do play music. My favorite show of theirs is "Juggling and Cheap Theatrics")

The Clear Water River Revival (Pete Seegar, Holly Near, The Flying Karamazov Brothers, Arlo Gutherie, etal)
LollaPalooza (Green Day, Beastie Boys, etal)

I'm sure I'm forgetting a few.

I woulda gone to see the Police on their Synchronicity tour, but they were playing out at the Meadowlands and my mom thought I was too young to go by myself and she didn't want to drive all the way out there. "You'll see them next time", she said. To her credit, she tried to make up for it by paying for my ticket to see Sting. And don't we all need a story akin to "My mom threw out my extremely valuable comic book collection."?

UPDATED 6/8/05: OMIGOD! How could I have forgotten Christine Lavin & The Four Bitchin' Babes (6x altogether)??

My biggest regret is that I never got to a Lollapalooza (especially in the first few years when they were awesome).

I don't count the Flying Karamazovs because I think of them as theater, rather than concerts. (Saw them once in DC.) But YMMV--I say keep 'em on your list!
