I'm not a fan of that kind of music so I know my reason. Didn't put them into my list because I didn't enjoy seeing them.

Just like Six Feet Under, Trivium, Avenged Sevenfold, Bullet For My Valentine, Immortal, Mayhem, Children Of Bodom, Subway To Sally, Finntroll, Ensiferum, Equillibrium, Dark Funeral or Gorgoroth. The one with Gaahl. Die Apokalyptisch Reiter, Behemoth, 1349, Meshuggah, Satyricon, The Dillinger Escape Plan, Heidevolk, Watain, Korn, Slipknot, Samael, Arch Enemy, Moonsorrow, Necrophobic, Skyforger and Melecesh and many more.
 
Plus there are bands that I like seeing, but didn't add to the list because they're cool, but not über great like the others. (Hail Of Bullets, Mumakil, Grave, The Crown etc)

I remember them being pretty solid live.  I like Necrophagist, but I can't really listen to too much tech-death.  Since ou mentioned Dillinger escape Plan, I would have saw them on the Gigantour with Megadeth, but they pulled out due to Ben Weinman getting injured.  Anthrax replaced them in that tour, but weren't at the Toronto show.  I think Symphony X played a bit longer since it was their last show of the tour.  I would've rather seen DEP Unhappy

I forgot to mention Trans-Siberian Orchestra on my list, though I thought of it more of a Christmas concert than a rock/metal show.  However, with the lineup I saw (featuring Alex Skolnick, Chris Caffery, Johnny Lee Middleton, and Jeff Plate among others), it was practically like seeing Savatage.  In fact, they played a medley in honor of Criss Oliva that included "Prelude To Madness" and "Believe".

Whoa, that's quite a list! You've got some bands on there that I thought only I listened to. Thumbs Up Alcatrazz with Yngwie?

Since I'm such a huge noob/cheap ass with concerts I've barely seen any. I do have a good streak going on though:

Agalloch
Symphony X
Opeth


I do regret missing out on Devin Townsend, Atheist, Alcest and Motorhead (just for the sake of it)
Megadeth, Metallica, Slayer and Testament. The real Big Four of thrash metal!



Listen to doom metal, worship Satan

Heaven and Hell/Judas Priest/Testament (missed almost all of Testament but when we got into the show close enough to hear what was going on the first thing discernible thing was "DON'T FOLLOW THE PREACHER!" which was awesome.

So glad I got to see Dio in some incarnation before he passed away.

 
Ozzy/Korn/Life of Agony (I was into Korn at the time but they sounded horrendous. Not for poor performance as far as I know but due to it being in a huge arena. Life of Agony sucked, since, well, you know, the sound, as well as the fact that they played their material).

 

Suicidal Tendencies (Twice within a few months. The first time they were cool but the second time they were decidedly anti-metal and were totally "punk." Same venue and everything. The second time they didn't play You Can't Bring Me Down and Mike Muir tried to attack a guy in the crowd for daring to flip him off while wearing a Cinderella t-shirt).

 

Steel Pole Bathtub/Faith No More (missed Helmet at my first FNM show. My first FNM show is one of the best I have ever seen. Angel Dust tour. Most in-prime band I have ever seen).

 

Judas Priest/Whitesnake (Insane line-up for me as they were probably my 2 favorite bands at the time. And this was recently. Here I Go Again into Still of the Night ending the opening set with all of British Steel coming up was mind boggling.)

 

Heart (Not totally metal by definition but someone laying down serious licks and shredding while somebody else belts out impossibly high and powerful notes is pretty metal to me).

 

Fugazi/Shudder to Think (Not really metal, but a great show. I have seen Fugazi a bunch of times).

 

Obituary/Cannibal Corpse/Agnostic Front/Malevolent Creation (As awesome as it sounds. Saw CC later with Corpsegrinder a couple of times, too).

 

Slayer (Missed Sick of It All and Meshuggah. First time seeing the mighty ones, though, so disappointment was limited, to say the least. A former member of Malevolent Creation bought my Malevolent Creation t-shirt off my back).

 

Black Sabbath/Rob Zombie/Deftones/Slayer/Primus/Godsmack//Fear Factory (OzzFest. Godsmack sucks but they kind of ruled for the couple of songs I saw. The Deftones are horrible. Fear Factory was a second stage headliner).

 

Megadeth (A couple of times).

 

Slayer/Unearth (hung out in the lobby during Unearth. I think it was Unearth. It could have been Earth Crisis or some other "Earth" band I don't care about).

 

Pantera/Prong (Sepultura was supposed to play between them but Max had gotten injured days before. HUGE bummer).

 

Pantera/White Zombie (Vulgar Display/La Sexorcisto tour. EPIC).

  

Morbid Angel/Kreator/Vader (As awesome as it sounds. Seen Morbid a few times. Once with Soilwork, I think).

 

Metallica/The Cult (2nd concert ever. Saw the Black Album tour, too).

 

Robert Plant/Joan Jett and the Blackhearts (1st concert ever).

 

GNR (Fatty McGee and the guys that aren’t Slash. It ruled my face off).

 

Slash’s Snakepit. (As not awesome as it sounds. Rad to be mere feet from Slash, though).

 

Judas Priest/Black Label Society/Thin Lizzy (Missed almost all of Lizzy but seeing Scott and Eric play The Boys are Back in Town makes it count. BLS is AWFUL).

 

Nile.

 

Napalm Death.

 

Mercyful Fate (Shouldn’t count. Got too intoxicated and slept though 99% of the show).

 

Bad Brains.

 

Deicide (Twice).

 

Rage Against the Machine.

 

Paradise Lost (with Cannibal Corpse or probably Morbid Angel).

 

Incantation. Immolation. Stuck Mojo. Hate Eternal. (I think. Opening for somebody).

 

Neurosis.

 

Death/Hammerfall. (Death at least one other time, too).

 
Gwar (A Couple of times).

 

Queens of the Stone Age (I actually listened to their set from a bar across the street from the venue when they opened for Ween. I thought they sucked, but kind of like them now).

 

Corrosion of Conformity/Karma to Burn  

 

Buzzov*en (Before they got “big.” Are they big? They were local to me).

 

Skeletal Earth (Not really that big but they were thanked in the liner notes of Harmony Corruption! They were local to me).

 
I am probably forgetting some...

Seconded, unless you count Widespread Panic and Trans Siberian Orchestra to be Metal, but mainly because school obligations have got in the way. But I have graduated now, and plan on catching up on some missed opportunities.

Well, I've been to a lot of shows where there was more than one band playing, so I don't remember everything I've seen.  But I'll try to get everything noteworthy (mostly good, but I'll never forget some of the bad ones, haha):

Dream Theater:

-       Washington DC for Six Degrees Tour, drove from Chattanooga all the way up because that was the furthest south they were travelling

-       Atlanta with Joe Satriani and King’s X

-       Atlanta for Train of Thought tour

-       Chicago for Octavarium tour

-       Gigantour – noteworthy others at this show were (note that the venue I went to had one stage, so half the shows, including Symphony X, didn’t happen)

o   Dillenger Escape Plan (HATED them – one of the top five WORST shows I’ve seen)

o   Nevermore

o   Anthrax

o   Fear Factory

-       Boston for 20th anniversary tour

-       20th anniversary show at Radio City Music hall, recorded and released on the Score DVD – best concert I’ve ever been to.

-       Hartford for Systemmatic Chaos tour with Redemption (awesome) and Into Eternity (hated them)

-       Hartford for Black Clouds tour

-       Atlanta for Dramatic Turn of Events tour

 

Hmm, 10 shows…I’m not a fanboy….

 

I’ve seen Megadeth once on their own tour in Atlanta, and once supporting Godsmack and Disturbed – the later was a really fun show, though Megadeth played a short set because of Mustaine’s injury (that made me sad).

 

I’ve seen Queensryche on the Operation Livecrime tour in Atlanta

 

G3 twice – once with Satriani, Vai, and Petrucci, once with Satriani, Vai, and Yngwie Malmsteen.  The latter was noteworthy because Vai brought out his triple neck guitar.

 

Symphony X three times, twice in Hartford, and once in Atlanta with Power Glove.  The Hartford venue became a place I HATE, because they like to promote local artists, and I sat through 6 awful bands at one of these shows, and 4 awful bands with a 5th opening act which was actually good (Echoes of Eternity – I have a really funny story about that one if anyone wants to hear) for the other.  Prize for the WORST band I’ve ever seen was at one of these.  I think they were called Sanctuary or Sanctity or something like that.  They were vile, profane, full of hatful lyrics, didn’t really “play” music, but more “killed” it.  The singer made fun of a cute couple that was near the front row, and insulted the audience repeatedly.  My brother and I were in the front row because we wanted to be there for Sym X, and we were totally bored, so at one point the singer says “put your hands in the air”.  We didn’t…so the lead guitarist leans down into our faces and shouts in his meanest growl “put your F***in’ hands in the air!”  Winner for worst show ever, mostly because this band hated everyone and everything and it was apparent.

At this same venue, I also saw:

 

Sonata Arctica – they put on a great show, everyone else before them didn’t.

 

Animals as Leaders – timed things PERFECTLY for this one.  Me and my buddies knew we weren’t interested in any of the other bands, and we drove 2 hours to Atlanta, showed up 3 songs before AAL came on, and left right after.  More driving than music, but it was TOTALLY worth it.  Tosin Abasi is a friggin’ genius and probably the best guitarist alive.

 

Heaven & Hell with Judas Priest at Mohegan Sun Casino in CT

 

Trans Siberian Orchestra 3 times at Hartford Civic Center (they put on an AMAZING show – lasers, lights, smoke, fire, snow…)

 

Def Leppard and Journey at the Mohegan Sun Casino in CT (ok, they’re not exactly metal, but close)

 

Rush 3 times, once in Knoxville, twice in CT.

 

PROG POWER USA!!!!

NOTE: I copied the lineups below from the Wikipedia entry, and most of them are not in any specific order it seems.

 

2005:

Stratovarius

Angra (for some reason I wasn’t crazy about them then, but later on discovered I loved them)

Conception

Therion

Orphaned Land (now one of my favorites)

Pink Cream 69

Symphorce

Manticora

Circus Maximus (this made a fanboy out of me)

Stride (good show, bad albums – bad production I think)

 

I missed 2006 and will ALWAYS regret it.  Money wasn’t great, but more than that I had looked at the lineup, seen no one I knew, and said “eh, I don’t need to go.”  Now I love the following and am sorry I missed them:

Jorn

Epica

Zero Hour

 

2007:

I actually went to the showcase for this one and saw Freak Kitchen, who put on one of the most entertaining shows I’ve EVER seen.  I hardly ever listen to the bands albums, but MAN they are fun live – mostly because of Mattias Eklundh, both for his crazy good playing, and his story telling.  These guys are nutty people.

 

Main show:

All Star Jam

Sonata Arctica (LOVE)

After Forever (awesome show)

Primal Fear

Pagan's Mind (I tired myself out during their set and had no energy left for Sonata Arctica…)

Threshold

Redemption

Virgin Steele

Firewind (these guys put on an amazing show)

Communic

Raintime

 

2008:

Showcase:

Helloween

Gamma Ray

Manticora

 

Main show:

Iced Earth

Amorphis

Jon Oliva's Pain

Riverside

Mustasch

Iron Savior

Andromeda

Rob Rock

Elvenking

Spheric Universe Experience

Saint Deamon

Pathosray

 

I wasn’t expecting this because, while I liked some of the artists in the lineup above, I wasn’t a huge fanboy at the time for any of them, but I think this might have been the most entertaining lineup I’ve seen for Prog Power all around.  I was greatly surprised by most of the bands listed above.

 

2009:

Fates Warning (ugh…I LOVE this band, but I was so stinking tired I was struggling to stay awake.  I was aware that they were putting on an amazing show, but too sleepy to really enjoy it.)

Crimson Glory (oh man, I couldn’t take these guys seriously – so clichéd.  I enjoyed this more because my buddies and I make fun of this band all the time now)

Brainstorm (singer was drunk and forgot the lyrics.  It was awful…but fun to watch, like a train wreck)

Royal Hunt

Pagan's Mind

Sabaton

Orphaned Land

Diablo Swing Orchestra (this is a fun band to watch, even if you aren’t crazy about their music)

Circus Maximus (wow…they were like 10 times better at this show than the previous, and I thought the previous was awesome – if you EVER get a chance to see these guys live, DO IT)

Mindflow

Cage (haha…my buddies and I enjoyed these guys for many of the same reasons we enjoyed Crimson Glory… )

 

2010:

HammerFall

Kamelot (Michael Eriksen from Circus Maximus sang)

Delain

Tarot

DGM

Týr

Oceans of Sadness

Stormwarrior

Seventh Wonder (this is the band I am MOST grateful to have had the chance to see because of Prog Power – this show rivals the DT 20th anniversary show in my book)

Nocturnal Rites

Illusion Suite

Leaves' Eyes

Blackguard

 

2011:

FRIDAY

Creation's End

Darkwater (another of my favorite bands)

Voyager (didn’t expect much from these guys, but LOVE them now because they put on one of the most entertaining shows I’ve ever seen)

Eldritch

Mob Rules

Ihsahn (replacing Arcturus, who canceled)

Sanctuary

 

SATURDAY

Haken (very noteworthy – one of my favs now)

While Heaven Wept

Red Circuit (love these guys)

Labyrinth

Forbidden

Therion

 

That’s all I can remember that’s metal.  Seen quite a few other shows that I wouldn’t consider Metal though.

"Heaven & Hell with Judas Priest at Mohegan Sun Casino in CT"
 
That was the Testament/H&H/Priest show I saw!
 
Are you from Chattanooga? You mentioned driving from there, going to Atlanta, etc. I grew up in middle Tennessee so MANY of the shows on my list took place in Atlanta (usually the Masquerade, sometimes the International Ballroom).
 
Nice list. I am jealous of all those prog-power shows.

You mean in CT, or a different venue?  That was a great show, btw.  I'm so glad I got to see Dio before he passed.  Cry

Well, I grew up in CT, went to school in Chattanooga, lived there after school for a couple years.  Then the job I was at fell apart (the company ran out of money and couldn't pay us) so I went back up north and stayed with my parents until I got back on my feet.  Found a wife, had kids...she wanted to move down "south" after she got out of the Navy, mostly because CT was so damn expensive, so I talked her into coming with me back to Chattanooga.  I have two very good friends here who have gone with me to most of the shows on this list, and that's actually one of the reasons I wanted to move back so badly.

The one at Mohegan Sun is indeed the one I was at. Where are you from in CT? 
 
Where did you go to school in Chattanooga, if you don't mind? College? Being from near there I don't associate it as a college town for people from other parts of the country. My first thought was you went to high school there but that doesn't seem to make sense with the time frame of the rest of your story.
 
I'd love to go to Prog Power but I now live in Vermont and it's a proverbial pain in the ass to travel so far for a show.
 
My girlfriend lives in Connecticut so I go there very often, hence the Mohegan experience.
 
Sorry to be so nosy. It's just a trip to seee such familiar words in a stranger's post.
