Grateful Dead (1990)
fIREHOSE
RHCP with Frusciante (after seeing them without him)
Duran Duran (reunion)
Deep Banana Blackout (In 1999, they packed NYC's Irving Plaza and played for hours. What an incredible show.)

the funny thing is, none of the above bands I would've gone to see, if it weren't for somebody else

also:
Helloween
Metal Church
Sanctuary
Heretic
Exodus
AC/DC
Metallica (Justice tour)

there are other bands that I've seen more than once
