I'd like to have seen Iced Earth with Barlow. Seeing as I haven't seen post-Barlow Iced Earth either, though, there's still one goal there.
Thatsa big miss!It must have been 1992, so Use Your Illusion era. I was really peed off because there'd never been any question of me going to see bands, but it was suddenly a priority when a friend was told she couldn't go. I think there was an age restriction too, and I always had problems getting in places right into my 30s.
Id be happy to see Kiss at a festival. They open with Detroit Rock City usually, that right? Job done after 5 mins. Not like the time I went to see Slipknot. It quickly became apparent that Duality is their only good song. They hadn't played it after 40mins but I couldn't stick anymore.I regret seeing Kiss live in 1996.
Accept's reunion with Udo in 2005 and Heaven and Hell.
I regret not being able to see Bruce Dickinson live in 1998 (the date was the day before of an exam at Uni; I did not go to the gig for that reason and the exam later got postponed! ) and in 2002 (I was skint and could not afford to travel to see him at a festival - I thought there would be other tours... Boy was I wrong!). Thankfully I had seen him live on the Accident of Birth tour and have seen him live on different special events in recent years (Canterbury Cathedral, Buddy Rich anniversary show, Sunflower Jam, Celebrating Jon Lord).
I missed the Ramones playing in my home town in 1991. Thankfully I could see them 2 years later.
