seen 3 times, 1st time in 23/05/1997 in Le Mans, France

Note: My first concert. I sat the whole time in the back with my mouth wide open... It was awesome! I will never forget it. I became hooked up right away on the Reggae music which I didn't know well at the time.

seen twice, 1st time in 19/09/1998 at the Techno Parade, Paris

Note:
Back then, Laurent Garnier was (maybe still is?) a very famous techno DJ in France. I thought it was pretty good.

seen in 19/09/1998 at the Techno Parade, Paris

Note:
Back then, Carl Cox was considered the best techno DJ in the world. His set was awesome.

The funny thing is that I was in Paris with a friend to see the Techno Parade. We totally miss the parade (I know... Stupid!) but we manage to see the big party in the Paris town center (50 000 people). It was awesome with Garnier, Carl Cox, Manu Le Malin... The most weird thing is that I lost my friend pretty early and I spent the whole party on my own and then the whole night with some total strangers in Paris trying to look for an after-party. Eventually, I slept in some total stranger's car. It may sound weird but I had a great time!

This guy is a legend. In the 70's, he produced all the biggest Reggae artists including Bob Marley. 30 years later, he is now a singer (if you can call it singing...) wearing strange clothes, smoking big joints and doing some weird stuff on stage. I was not really thrilled...

Note:
A legendary techno DJ from Detroit. Before him, there was this live band called Digital World or Digital Work and it was utter sh*t. My friends were getting restless and just wanted to leave the place. I told them to wait. And it was worth it... Finally, he started at 23.00 and the place went completely upside down. From a boring show, it became a huge party. A killer set.

Note:
After Sister Carol (see above), we were supposed to see David Rodigan. He was supposed to be some big shot DJ. Whatever...We hade never heard of the guy but new experiences are always welcome. Suddenly, a guy who really looks like Homer Simpson (seriously... check the pic on the left...) comes on stage. Me and my buddies were thinking "it must be a roadie or a DJ assistant or whatever...". But NO ! It was freaking David Rodigan himself !!! So Homer Simpson is now a DJ ?!? It can't be good... Indeed, it wasn't good... it was f*cking sensational !!! The guy started to put some LPs and after 5 minutes, the place got completely crazy with people shouting, dancing, jumping all around. A.M.A.Z.I.N.G !!! Easily the most surprising show and one of the best I have ever seen.

Back then, Sizzla was the biggest Reggae artist. So, I was expecting something huge and I have been waiting for years to see him. Eventually, it was...ok. The guy has a great voice but he is just shouting most of the time. A pity.

Note:
I always liked his music and it was pretty cool to see him, topless and wearing jeans as usual. I don't know why but with my friend we decided to go as closed as possible... and we did it! We went to the front row. But in the last 3 meters to the stage, there were 100 people involved in this combination of heavy fighting/jumping/dancing and the temperature was like 60 degrees Celcius... I think we spent 1 minute there and then we went back a few meters into the safe zone... Still a pretty good show.

Note:
In the music department, I usually don't like anything from the 80's. This band is however the exception and I always liked their music. The crowd was huge for this concert and I remember that lots of people were shouting at them, urging them to play their hit songs and guess what ? They didn't do it!!! They mostly played some obscure songs from their new album. I though it was just awesome. Great music and great show.

Before I started to ONLY watch movies, I used to do other stuff... When I was a student, me and my buddies will go pretty often to concerts, especially Reggae Festivals.

Getting there... Actually, about 30 acts are missing here but they are too "obscure" for Listal... Maybe, I will add them in the future.

If you're curious about my other interests beside movies, please check this list : Before I ONLY watched movies...

Like 95% of these I've never heard of, but reggae is quite awesome and wow Iggy Pop? Nice!

Excellent list man. I'm a little jealous that you've seen Iggy & I haven't. Hopefully one day that will change. Love the note for Pink Floyd haha.

You've seen the Skatalites 3 times to my zero! Grrr.

Great list!

From all these guys, I have seen only Asian Dub Foundation. That was in WOMAD 2001 in Athens. I have the same impression as you. The sound was too loud and, for this reason, a bit irritating for me. The music of the band is pretty good though.

I only know five on the list and of them I've only seen Iggy Pop :P

I have only seen one band from your list, Toots and the Maytals. I mostly went to rock concerts when I was young. For some reason, I missed the Pink Floyd concert that most of my friends attended.

I am not suprized you were disappointed with The Wailers. By this time, they have lost all the original talent that had made them so seminal. Of course Marley and Tosh were no longer with the band, but I am not sure about Bunny Wailer. Like I said, I like Reggae, but I don't follow it as closely as Rock or Country.

@Frank, I checked your song on your youtube. Indeed, great tune!! Michael Prophet has one hell of a voice that's for sure.
