I've been to many, but just to name a few:

-Slipknot (jaegermeister tour)
-311 (many times, but 10th anniversary show was amazing)
-Avenged Sevenfold (seen them twice already, but next saturday's show should trump all others)
-First year of Family Values Tour (Incubus, Orgy, Limp Bizkit, Rammstein, Korn).

I'll be seeing Children of Bodom and Trivium together in november. :D

Saw Muse in 2003, they put on an amazing show. Bad Religion in '04; best thing about that was the crowd, it was mental.

Seeing Steve Vai this month (23rd). I can't wait. :D
You can now find me >here

Being a South African...I never really saw any international bands there apart from Smashing Pumpkins, James, Jackson Browne...maybe a few more...until I got out here to England...I have since seen many bands...the best show I have seen was Greenday at Milton Keynes Bowl in June...was there biggest show ever...65000 people on both days...so thats 13000 in two days......that was the best all round show...but I think Mark Knopfler at the Royal Albert Hall was probably the best playing and all that I have seen.

Also Coheed and Cambria (seen them twice) were amazing...and Bright Eyes (also seen them twice) are amazing.
Funeral for a Friend are also really good live.

lets turn this around tho...what is the worst international,succesful band you guys have seen?

The most dissappointing I have seen is probably Finch...I love them, maybe I just saw a bad gig, but they were very dissappointing.
Hope is when we feel the pain that makes us try again
