I saw Van Halen open for Sabbath at the Fox Theater in Atlanta, around '77, I think. Wasn't even close...
I would have seen VH on that tour but DLR fell off the stage and broke his leg so they didn’t appear on the British tour.

I saw Thin Lizzy in 1980 and never got a chance to see them again. I saw the Stones in 82 thinking no one would ever see them again. How wrong can you be!

Mrs G saw the Who's last concert with Keith Moon in Toronto. She worked in the music industry and has seen practically everything....but she says that show was like a religious experience.

Blur

Singles tour, 1999.

All the singles in order, from "She's So High" to (at that point) "No Distance Left to Run"

A few years later Graham Coxon would leave the band during the recording of "Think Tank" and Damon Albarn chose to focus on various other projects. They have since reformed a few times, but it's never lined up that I could go.

I did get to see Graham Coxon solo in 2012, opening for Noel Gallagher of all people. That would have been unthinkable in 1995.

The Black Crowes

Lynyrd Skynyrd - Boston's Music Hall, 1977, right before the crash.

I might kill to have seen Sly & the Family Stone live
You can have the next best thing with this set, recorded when they were still firing on all cylinders, and long enough before the dope started eating Sly Stone's talent . . .
