    Posted: 14 Nov 2011 at 4:03pm

Following is a list of metal bands that I have seen live:

Van Halen
Metallica
Dokken
Scorpions
Kingdom Come
Poison
David Lee Roth
Cinderella
Bullet Boys
Dream Theater
Guns N Roses
Faith No More
Rush
Primus
Mellotron
King's X
Def Leppard
Deep Purple
Dio
Yngwie Malmsteen
Hardline
Jethro Tull
Winger
 
Damn, in retrospect, I haven't seen much metal live at all.  I think I might be forgetting a few bands and I suppose many of these are borderline metal by today's standard or not really considered metal at all.

I have a pretty precise list here: http://rateyourmusic.com/list/UMUR/artists_that_i_ve_seen_live
 
The list includes every artists I´ve seen so it includes non-metal acts too.

Great lists, Pekka and UMUR.

Definitely the bands I've regretted missing live have to be Tool, Queensryche and Dream Theater. I've never heard anything but raves for AC/DC, Aerosmith, and Alice Cooper live, too. So, I would have to add them as well.

I haven´t seem Maiden and I haven´t seen Priest. I would like to see those are two acts. I guess I missed the last chance to see Priest when I decided not to attend the Copenhell festival.

Saw Maiden at the very height of their dominance twice during the 85 World Slavery Tour. Two of the four Long Beach Arena shows that made up the Live After Death albums... They were just extraordinary then. No other band on the planet could touch them then.

And having Halford thunder on-stage with his Harley is just one of those things to be experienced live. I couldnt imagine watching a Priest concert without Tipton up there. Would seem like something is fundamentally wrong.

Well maybe it has something to do with the fact that some concerts in the US don´t allow people under 21 to enter the venue because alcohol is sold?

Oh yeah that sucks. I've never heard of that law around here in The Netherlands. Kids can go to gigs but only can buy beer from 16 years and older and hard liquor from 18 years and older...
But gigs in bars is only for 16 year olds and older, just like any bar around here.

I´m not sure but I think the age limit in Denmark for buying alcohol in bars is 18 years, but personally I had no problems getting into venues who sold alcohol (or to purchase alcohol) from I was around 14 to 15 years old. It´s probably stricter today.

Cannibal Corpse
Dying Fetus
Necrophagist (nearly twice, but I left the show early for a reason I don't remember)

Those age limits suck. Missed so many concerts during high school because of this. But in consequence saw a lot of Australian bands live at festivals like Blood Lust (Sydney based) and our Premier Metal festival 'Metal for the Brain' (Canberra based), which were all ages. I couldn't for the life of me remember what I've actually seen, but http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Metal_for_the_Brain if you look at the bands playing from around '99 - '03, I saw most of 'em. Wish I was a little older and could have seen Bestial Warlust & DisEMBOWLMENT in their hay day (the later would have been a difficult task). 

Since leaving school I could count on my hand the metal bands I've seen live:
- Portal (people should try and see them if they can, amazing live, the singer had like some cuckoo clock/wooden bird cage on his head)
- Sunn o)))/Boris (got free tickets so I couldn't not go)
- Corrupted (a couple of times w/ whatever band play with them at the time, usually try and catch 'em when I'm in Japan)

I just turned 18 this year and could have driven to an all ages Enslaved/Alcest show at Milvale, but I had to work.  I don't even have the job anymore.  Arkona is playing in Reading, but I am not going to drive that far.
