My biggest concert regret of all time was going to Dying Fetus, Necrophagist, and Cannibal Corpse instead of seeing Primus that night. I still don't know what I was thinking. I had tickets before Primus got announced and I didn't want to waste the tickets since I couldn't find anyone to buy them. I've been beating myself up every day since.

Second is Steve Vai, I could have gone to the taping of 'Where the Wild Things Are' that and he hasn't came back since

Third is missing Rush any time they have came since I've been of concert attending age

Fourth is Zappa Plays Zappa's first tour. I am really against the Zappa Family Trust and at the time I didn't want to give them any of my money what so ever. Later I found out who was in the line up. I would have loved to see Steve Vai, Napoleon Murphy Brock, and Terry Bozzio one one stage...

Those are the big ones I can think of for now. I'm still beating myself up for not seeing Prog. Nation 2008 as well cause I've never seen Opeth. : /

Every single one of these shows were due to my being a poor bastard.

I am a fan of Hammerfall and Death, but yeah, I am not surprised that happened.

No, I'm arguing for their equality in terms of live music value. For example:

Maiden is not a particularly tight live band. Not to say they're sloppy per se, but they're average - some mistakes, but overall a good show. Now take Dream Theater - musically they are absolutely flawless and mind-numbingly tight live. But in the eyes of most (including myself) they are pretty god damn boring. If given the choice, I'd rather see Maiden - because I would rather see an OK live band that makes up for it with theatrics and entertainment than a 100% perfect band that simply stands there and makes me wish I had saved my $50-a-ticket (or whatever) by staying home and just watching a live DVD.

i see what you're saying. when i saw Necrophagist on Summer Slaughter last year they played flawless, but i got bored after awhile. when i saw DragonForce in '06, before all the guitar hero nerds discovered them, the crowd went apeshit for them and were tons of fun, despite how sloppy they were back then.

Fates Warning is a band I have always really liked, however live I find them quite boring.

I can't wait to be disappointed in that case, haha. I'm driving 4 hours each way to Hartford, CT on June 4th to finally see them.

Oh! That's cool! The last time I saw Fates was when they opened for Savatage on the Poets and Madmen tour.
