1. Black Sabbath - 1992, 1995, 1999. Dio, Martin and Ozzy. Seen them with all three Sabbath singers that counted which i'm most proud of.

2. Dio -1997, 1998. Given his recent health issues who knows if any of us will see him live again.

3. Alice In Chains- Opening for Ozzy in 1992, R.I.P. Layne.

4. Anthrax - 2003. They're pretty much dead as a band now and I probably won't get a chance to see them again.

5. Iron Maiden - 2000. The comeback tour with Dickinson. It was a pretty huge deal everywhere. It's been ten years but i'm finally seeing them again this summer

6. Page & Plant - 1995. As close to seeing Zeppelin live as i'll ever get.

7. Ozzy - 1992. The 'No More Tours Tour' pretty much the last tour Ozzy ever did in top form. Have seen him live many times since then though.

8. Guns N Roses/Metallica/Faith No More - 1992 stadium tour and my first ever metal show. All three bands were on top of their game live and all were riding the biggest waves of popularity they had in their careers. It's really hard to beat this one.

9. Type O Negative - 1993, 2007, 2008. It's never gonna happen again so i'm glad I caught them when I did. R.I.P. Pete.

10. The Rolling Stones - 1998. At Madison Square Garden it really dosen't get much better than this and it's one of the shows I like to say i'm most proud of that i've seen.

Jungle Rot- Wanted to see them for years before I did, were one of my favorite bands almost since I first heard them, they never ever tour the US, etc.

Ghoul- Love Ghoul, they probably won't be playing much more, on top of the already small amount of shows they play, and I have been lucky enough to see them twice

General Surgery- Fucking awesome, Swedish goregrind bands don't come here to often

Abscess- at the time I did not appreciate this for what it was, but Abscess only do a handful of one off shows, and they rule, so to see them was awesome

Carcass- Arguably my favorite band, most likely the only chance I will get to see them

Iron Maiden- I realize everyone saw SBIT, but I love Maiden, and c'mon, that set was historic

Dragonforce- Because maybe one day seeing ZP will be like having seen Di'Anno

Turisas- First American tour

1. Iron Maiden - The specific reason I list them is because ever since I got into Maiden, I've seen them at least once on every US tour they've done (starting with GMETID). So, I'm proud of that.
2. King Crimson - Mostly inactive since 2004, save for a few select shows with Gavin Harrison as the 2nd drummer. I saw two.
3. Amorphis - Not such a big deal for Euro-people maybe, but they don't exactly come to the US regularly, y'know.
4. Helloween (with Gamma Ray) - Getting to see Gamma Ray and Helloween in the same night, and then the encore with Kai doing Helloween songs: awesome tour.
5. Queensryche - Not rare as a touring band or anything, but the Mindcrime (+ Mindcrime II) shows were damn awesome and I'm not sure if they'll be doing that again.
6. Opeth - Also not rare. But I've only seen them twice - On shows that were very rare. The chronology shows, and the recent 20th anniversary shows.
7. Heaven and Hell - They played a ton of shows, yeah. But the whole thing was pretty unique and felt special. Especially now that it's possible that the whole thing is over.
8. Mucc - Only played 2 headliners in the US ever.
9. Judas Priest - Just 'cause they're that awesome
10. Hiromi's Sonicbloom - Mostly just 'cause of awesome, but also because the show was actually in an NYU theater that was all amounts of kickass, instead of Blue Note.

A few of these shows must have happened before I was alive...

I don't really have 10 bands that I'm super happy to have seen, because I haven't been going to shows for that long...

Guns N' Roses do a theatre warm-up show.
Opeth at the Royal Albert Hall.
Arena do an "evening with" in London.
Roadsaw do a Kyuss covers set.
Jon Oliva's Pain play more or less all of 'Streets' as a one-off.
Celtic Frost (twice)
The More I See (why? because it was in my home town and I've never seen a metal gig in my town before or since, and because they played to literally five people and still turned it on)
Metallica ('Death Magnetic' album launch show, of which there were two Worldwide)
Thunder (last ever headline show)
Iron Maiden (Clive Burr benefit show in a theatre)

Ask me again in a month and I'll say Evergrey play an acoustic set.

And in two months and I'll say Devin Townsend play all of 'Ziltoid The Omniscient'.
