    I've seen Cinderella 14 times and Skid Row eight times, but almost all were as opening acts.

    Pearl Jam - 15
    Cinderella - 14 (all as opening acts)
    Metallica - 12 (None in the last decade)
    Bon Jovi - 12 (None since 1991)
    DMB - 12
    Springsteen - 10
    U2 - Eight
    Skid Row - Eight (This is what happens when you go from opening for Bon Jovi to opening for GNR. Only once as the headliner, but they were with Soundgarden)
    Poison - Seven (None since 1990)
    GNR - Seven
    Beastie Boys - Five

    My god, I think I've been to like 8 concerts in my life. I'll slide away now.

    Grateful Dead: 25-30 times, from Highgate, Vermont (my first Dead experience) to Chicago's Soldier Field 1995 (I was at the last show, 20 rows front and center from the stage).

    As for me, Modest Mouse five times. But none since 2004. God, I miss living in a college town.

    (xan i too was at the last dead show; still have the ticket stub and i wrote the setlist down on the back of the business card of the person i interviewed with a few days prior. the show was bad, bad, bad, except for the sad version of 'so many roads' and a rare 'unbroken chain.'

    Springsteen -- 62
    Billy Joel -- 11
    Paul Simon -- 5
    Run-D.M.C. -- 5 (the biggest fall from grace. I saw them at MSG in 1987 with the Beastie Boys, 1997 at Tramps, where they had the exact same setlist and in 2002 at a charity event in front of maybe 500 people)
    Southside Johnny -- 5 (not including Asbury Xmas shows)

    Yeah, the show didn't knock my socks off, but they played Minglewood Blues (one of my fave tunes), so that was cool.
