My Life in Concerts: the Complete List

[Updated: August 6, 2018]

Over the course of the last 23 plus years, I have enjoyed the opportunity to go and see many bands in a live setting.  As my readers know, I have seen Yes by far the most, but, contrary to popular belief, Yes (and their openers) is/are not the only band(s) I have ever seen live.

After so many years and shows, I thought it would be fun to try and list and catalogue all the shows I have seen.  I think the list below is about as comprehensive as I can create, and it does not, obviously, include live bands in bars and community festivals and such.

I have also, over the course of this blog, put up numerous posts of tour programs, tickets, reviews, and other things I have collected over the years at concerts.  Here they are below:

Here is, what I think, is my complete list of concerts (229):

Porcupine Tree Posts Round Up

Porcupine Tree was, for a number of years, my favorite new progressive rock band and, as a result, I tried to go see them as much as I could when I was not seeing Yes.  I have posted about them a number of times in this blog and you can find those posts below:

 

 

Random Concert Ticket Photos

As my readers know, I am a very avid concert goer.  Granted, since I have had children, I have had less time and less money to dedicate to seeing shows, but I still try to get two or three in every year.

For fun, I have already posted some tickets before, which you can find here:

I have also been to a variety of shows that really do not fit into any categories and I have posted a sort of grab bag of tickets below for various and miscellaneous shows.

NEARFest 2012 – Apocalypse Event Program

This post is in my series regarding the North East Art Rock Festival (NEARFest).  You can find all of my posts regarding NEARFest here and I started the series here.

At each NEARFest, the Festival organizers created a weekend event program.  I was lucky enough to have purchased one from all of the Festivals I attended, and I will post photographs of them all here.  These programs were expertly crafted with many beautiful photographs and well written descriptions and histories and such.  Of course, they also contain their fair share of ads, as one may expect.  I got most (maybe all) of the programs I purchased at NEARFest over the years autographed by the artist who drew its cover and, in this case, that was Yes and Asia cover artist Roger Dean.

I was able to purchase a program at NEARFest 2012, and I thought it would be fun to post it here for prog rock fans who may not have had the opportunity to go to the Festival and/or purchase the program.  Accordingly, I took photographs of each page of the program and posted them below.

I also posted a review of NEARFest 2012 which you can see here.  The review contains many photographs from the event.

Enjoy!

The Many Faces of Peter Gabriel

As my readers know, I am an enormous progressive rock fan.  Now, as all my readers also know, Yes is, by far, my favorite band (you can read more of my writing about Yes here), but my second favorite vacillates, depending on the day, between Genesis and King Crimson.  As I am too young to have seen Genesis in their progressive rock prime, I have taken the opportunity to see their world class recreation band The Musical Box several times about which you can read about here where I include things like concert reviews, tickets, tour books, and the like.

When Genesis was in its prog rock prime, their lead singer was none other than the great Peter Gabriel.  Peter Gabriel gained a lot of notoriety by dressing in costumes to represent the themes and/or characters in the Genesis songs to bring those characters to life.  Some of his masks and costumes became strongly identified not just with Gabriel but with the music itself.  After having seen some of these costumes up close at The Musical Box shows, I began investigating into how many different costumes and masks Gabriel would don during his years with Genesis.

In the summer of 2016 Gabriel went on tour with former Police singer Sting for a joint tour called the Rock Papers Scissors North American Tour.  Instead of each performing separately, Sting and Gabriel were both on stage with their respective bands at the same time for the entire show.  The set list for the show alternated between Sting songs, Police Songs, and Gabriel songs.  Notably absent were Genesis songs as Gabriel has, unfortunately for the fans, more-or-less left Genesis behind when he left in 1975, and has almost never looked back.  The only nod to Genesis in the set list were the first few lines from “Dancing with the Moonlight Knight,” but those lines were sung by Sting not Gabriel.  Since 1975, Gabriel has all but extricated himself from Genesis.  By all reports, there is no bad blood between the Genesis members (indeed Phil Collins (Gabriel’s replacement in Genesis) was Gabriel’s best man at his wedding in 2004).  Gabriel just, for one reason or another, feels he needs to move on from Genesis and cut ties from that music; indeed (again), he did not even appear at Genesis’ induction into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 2010!  Some interviews make it seem like Gabriel looks at his time in Genesis as an embarrassing youthful time in his life that he cringes about when he sees photographs.

Since his departure in 1975, Gabriel’s connections with Genesis have been very very thin and rare; they are as follows: (1) in 1979 he joined Phil Collins in singing “The Lamb Lies Down on Broadway” at the Reading Festival (see here); (2) in 1982 he performed a benefit concert with Genesis for his charity WOMAD called “Six of the Best;” (3) in 1983 Gabriel had an impromptu performance of “I Know What I Like (In Your Wardrobe)” at a (former Genesis guitarist) Steve Hackett show (see here) which also included Genesis member bassist Mike Rutherford; (4) in 1998 he helped touched up his old live vocals in the studio for the release of The Genesis Archive 1967-75; and, (5) in 1999 he recorded “The Carpet Crawlers 1999” with the band for release on the compilation album Turn it On Again: the Hits.  This is why what happened on July 24, 2016 is so significant.  On the last date of the “Rock Paper Scissors North American Tour,” Gabriel, instead of Sting, sang those few lines to “Dancing with the Moonlight Knight (see here)!  This was a very exciting moment to Genesis fans all over the world as it is only his sixth nod to Genesis in over 41 years.

Gabriel’s recognition of Genesis, however brief, inspired me to resume researching the costumes and masks Gabriel would wear with Genesis.  After spending some time, I think I can finally create a comprehensive list.  To that end, I think the photograph list below represents, for the most part, all of the various looks Gabriel had during his years with Genesis.  If you know of, or have found, any others, please let me know in the comments section and tell me where to find them.  When I get them I will add them to this list.

Thanks and enjoy!

The Musical Box Tickets Through the Years

As my readers know, I am an enormous progressive rock fan.  Now, as all my readers also know, Yes is, by far, my favorite band (you can read more of my writing about Yes here), but my second favorite vacillates, depending on the day, between Genesis and King Crimson.

To that end, I have seen the absolutely amazing Genesis recreation band The Musical Box several times, and every time I am completely blown away as to how precise they are in transporting their fans back to the days of classic Genesis.  I have written extensively about their shows and what they do here and posted other tour books, photographs, and such, from their shows here.

As I have seen The Musical Box several times, and after posting my NEARFest tickets (see here) and my Yes tickets (see here) – and seeing the positive response it got – I thought it would be fun to post my The Musical Box tickets too, so here you go!

NEARFest X (2008) Event Program

This post is in my series regarding the North East Art Rock Festival (NEARFest).  You can find all of my posts regarding NEARFest here and I started the series here.

At each NEARFest, the Festival organizers created a weekend event program.  I was lucky enough to have purchased one from all of the Festivals I attended, and I will post photographs of them all here.  These programs were expertly crafted with many beautiful photographs and well written descriptions and histories and such.  Of course, they also contain their fair share of ads, as one may expect.  I got most (maybe all) of the programs I purchased at NEARFest over the years autographed by the artist who drew its cover and, in this case, that was Yes and Asia cover artist Roger Dean.

I was able to purchase a program at NEARFest X (2008), and I thought it would be fun to post it here for prog rock fans who may not have had the opportunity to go to the Festival and/or purchase the program.  Accordingly, I took photographs of each page of the program and posted them below.

I also posted a review of NEARFest X (2008) which you can see here.  The review contains many photographs from the event.

Enjoy!
