Most seen live act

Post by Sivvy » Mon Mar 23, 2015 9:02 pm

So I've just realised that the RAH show on Sunday will mark a tipping point for me - the day when Frank sneaks past the Levellers to become the performer I've seen in concert the most times* . . . The Wonderstuff are in third place after seemingly playing my local pub every other weekend in their formative years, when I was too poor and/or lazy to go anywhere else.

Curious to know who tops other people's lists (assuming anyone else is as OCD as me in keeping tabs on such things)?

* as an aside, I've just bought tickets to see the Levellers again in June, so it's still all to play for. You know, if anyone fancied announcing some more UK dates any time soon . . . :wink:

I keep a list. Coincidentally, Frank & Souls also just tipped over into first place at the Toronto show. In second now is that other guy I chase. Gaslight Anthem is in third.

The next three have high numbers mostly because I saw them as support acts for Frank a bunch of times, and then a few times after too. Against Me! and Menzingers are tied for the next bands I've seen the most times because I went specifically to see them.

Frank definitely wins mine. I have no idea how many times I have seen him, but it is in excess of 140 I believe.

Second would be Million Dead, who I saw 39 times.

Third would either be Tool, Clutch or New Model Army, all of whom I have seen more than 20 times.

First place for me is Frank who I've seen 72 times. Second place is Kaiser Chiefs with 64 shows. No idea who is in third place.

The Toronto show was my 40th for Frank and he continues to expand his commanding lead. Muse are second, I have 30 for them (31 if I count the four-song "private performance"/soundcheck I got to see through a contest). Arctic Monkeys came roaring up into the picture last year but are still far behind with 21. Hoping to add quite a few Muse gigs when they announce something with more than a week's notice ... forever crushed I missed those small gigs they just did. Of course I'll add as many Frank gigs as I can too.
I count everything; I love making lists.
My most-seen in a single year is AM last year with 19; Muse I saw 18 times in 2013; Frank I saw 17 times in 2012 and 15 times in 2013.
Frank is also back in the lead for miles-driven for me with 11,747 ... AM second with 11,404, Muse 7,345. I haven't ever bother to count miles-flown ... Muse would win that.
2011: 8/26, 28, 11/4(x2); 2012: 2/21, 22, 23, 24, 3/9, 11, 12, 18, 9/8, 10, 11, 12, 14, 15, 28, 29, 30; 2013: 6/5, 6, 7(x2), 8, 7/26, 31, 8/1, 2, 10/4, 5, 11/16, 19, 29(X2). 2014: 6/4. 2015: 3/8, 9(x2), 5/12, 13, 14, 15. 18

This is quite annoying Scott. I knew you would pass me out on Turner shows, but I didn't expect it to be so soon.

I counted this up (and updated my signature) the other night. Frank leads the way, last night's book show made it 28, which isn't bad in 4 years, (I'm mostly blaming Blonde for this) 2nd I'm really not sure. I saw the Levellers A LOT as a kid, or Feeder, or possibly Ben Marwood.
