To quote the Pet Shop Boys, "It's a Sin". - or - A list of concerts I've attended...

Si I filled out one of those FaceBook MEME type thingamahjigs today and I was equally embarrassed, amused and lost in some fun memories...

You had to list all concerts that you've been t. Now granted my list is SMALL and it's very likely you've not heard of quite a few of these groups, (especially those outside of the Maritimes, or Canada) but whatever...

Here's my list as sad, and sparse, and all over the map as it is...

OK, here are the rules. Test your memory and your love of live music by listing 50 ((you’re kidding, right?!)) artists or bands (or as many as you can remember) you've seen in concert. List the first acts that come into your head. Oh, and list the first concert you ever saw (you can remember that, can’t you)? ((Screw that I'm putting them in order!))

01 Platinum Blonde
(First concert. Not a very good start huh?)

02 Loverboy
(I don't know why either)

03 Glass Tiger

04 Tina Turner
(Private Dancer, GREAT CONCERT)

05 Haywire
(On 'the Hill' and FREE!)

06 Skinny Puppy
(sponsored by CKDU!)

07 Thompson Twins / OMD
(AWE-SOME. This was in 1984... CLASSIC 80's!)

08 David Bowie
(Second Row! We felt his sweat hit us in the face when he spun... w00t w00t)

09 Jane Siberry
(The first night of "Bound By The Beauty" she didn't know the lyrics to like 5 songs and had to read them out of a binder! But it was a great. a very small venue. very intimate)

10 The Rankin Family
(Shut up! I LOVE me some Capers!)

11 The Cranberries / Live
(Free Tix in the BCE Corporate box… We drank ‘em out of Gin and then moved on to the Vodka…)

12 Bjorn Again
(As close as I’ll ever get to seeing ABBA Live)

13 Bjork
(crazy ass bitch! She was fun!)

14 Scissor Sisters
(More freebies – Thanks again Kel - AWESOME concert! I ♥ Baby Daddy!)

Richard Marx (early 90's) - this concert was not bad and first one I dragged hub's to while we were dating...

I have also gone to see Hilary Duff Twice (yes, TWICE... I am a sucker for punishment --- my daughter LOVES her, enough said).

I am also going to see Jonas Brothers in August with baby girl and her friends... can you say ARGH really, really loud?

I've seen Shirley Bassey perform about a dozen times and she gives me a thrill like no other.
