The Top Ten (Active) Bands You Want to See

Recently inspired by a conversation with ButcherofBirth via Facbeook:

Who are the top 10 bands that you haven't seen live that you want to see? For the purposes of logic, please omit any bands that are either broken up, are indefinitely inactive (at least live), or are studio-only projects.

As usual, I'll post mine in a little while.

04.Riot
05.LORD
06.Redemption
07.Royal Hunt
08.Angra

10.Journey

Also nods to Whitesnake, Pink Cream 69, and Vanishing Point.

Nocturnal Rites would actually top this list but... I'm finally fucking seeing them in September!!!

And for the record, the bands that would be in this category if not for my disclaimer:
Savatage, Avantasia, Bruce Dickinson, and Dungeon.

I've done a pretty good job of seeing bands I love when the opportunity pops up, but that still leaves quite a few out in the cold. Here's a rough ten:

1. My Dying Bride
2. Nevermore
3. King Diamond
4. Immortal
5. Explosions in the Sky
6. Peter Gabriel
7. David Gilmour
8. Slough Feg
9. Cobalt
10. Atheist

Thought about putting Slayer and Metallica but I've skipped them both countless times so I guess experience shows that I apparently don't want to see them all that fucking bad. MDB make the list whether they ever play the States again or not, because I'll fly to see them if they say it's gonna be their last show or whatever. King Diamond, Peter Gabriel, and David Gilmour all make it on the assumption that they actually plan to tour ever again - none have said they wouldn't, but they also haven't...y'know, toured in quite some time. Cobalt make it on the assumption that Phil isn't talking out of his ass when he says they'll do some shows in late 2010 or 2011.
