That should be a comprehensive list.. It's always good to keep track of these things..

I can add Sting & The Police to that list in a few months.. It's hard to work out who else I'd want to add to it. Even though my favourite bands at the minute seem to be Mew and Stars, I don't feel any desire to see either of them live. The studio recordings of their songs are what I really love, live variations don't interest me. I think mostly, the artists that interest me live are those that I used to listen to when I was much younger, just for the goosebumps (seeing Sit Down by James has persuaded me that it's definitely looking at bands from the 90's). With that in mind, I'd love to see OMD and Erasure live, and I'd see Oasis if they'd promise not to play anything less than ten years old. Maybe the Lightning Seeds too.

In terms of more current music, I think I'd like to see Elbow, Sugar Ray, Travis (though more as an old-school thing), but for the most part I think I've got the majority of my favourite bands already on the list above.. Not bad going for 25 years, I guess :o)

*wow* I'm impressed with the memory or maybe it's just half the bands I've seen aren't that memorable ;-)

Still, you gain bonus points for having a userpic of Vince Clarke's picture from the Chorus album cover....
