As I have mentioned it early this month, I will be seeing David Cook concert on July 17…and somehow that post reminds me that I haven’t written 5 concerts I want to see before I die. While the atmosphere is perfect to talk about concert, I hereby present my top 5 concert I want to see plus some honorable mentioned.
I always did a countdown for my top-5 post, but now is an exceptional because I bet you know which band I want to see so bad…They are all over my blog
Here are 5 bands I want to see LIVE before I die:
I love this band above all bands ever created on earth past, present and most likely future. For the past 10 years, I life in a dream and sort of lost hope that I would ever see them live…maybe if I find a super rich husband who could take me to Japan to see them. I love all their DVD concerts which I have seen over and over again. Thank God, on the 11th year of love, my dream finally came true. Last May, they came and performed incredibly perfect.
After seeing them live…I feel like drinking salt water, the thirst has increased…I want to see them again and again and again!! I want to go to all their concerts if money is not a big issue here. But at least, I will do everything to be at their concert in Jakarta next time, even if I am heavily pregnant when they come to visit again
If I find my soul mate before the next concert, he has to promise NEVER to prohibit me from coming to L’Arc~en~Ciel Concert and Live Viewing…he may prohibit me from the rest of the bands below, but not from this one!!
I used to ONLY like Muse, but when I saw them live…WOW!! They were mesmerizing. I love them ever since. Their first concert in Jakarta was in 2007. I was expecting to see them again after they released …I hope they will come on their next album’s tour. I love to see their energy again and jumping up and down to their music.
They are indeed one of the best live band ever! Muse is my number one band from Britain, which is also my number one English speaking band.
Radiohead hasn’t come to Indonesia yet
There was rumour about them coming this year but rumour remains rumour. Radiohead is genius!! I know that not many people like them or even understand their music here in Jakarta…but there are a lot of people here who love to see them Live. I am one of them. I want to get lost in their songs like York did every time he sang his songs.
To show my love for this band, I once made my top 5 Radiohead songs, HERE.
#4 Green Day
I have liked this band since I was still in High school, not a huge fan but I still enjoy them a lot. They came to Jakarta at that time but being a high school student has many disadvantages…one of them is parent’s restriction. They didn’t allow me to go to ANY rock concert
I am still waiting for them to come again. One of Indonesian famous promoter said that they are quite expensive…but I can still hope.
#5 Axl Rose
I used to be a Guns n Roses huge fan!! When they disbanded themselves, I was very sad.
Axl has ‘new’ GN’R now…to be honest, I really don’t care who are his entourage now, all I want to see is AXL ROSE. It would be nice to see Axl, Slash, Izzy, Steven and Duff but I can still accept only AXL. I want to head bang and sing to GNR songs. Unfortunately, Axl is very moody and not sure whether he will ever visited Indonesia or not with his unstable new band.
Beside those five bands, I also want to see other bands below…but these bands are conditional, it means when money, time and place are convenient, I will come.
Honorable mention, in no particular order:
(I give you links to their live performances if you are curious about them or never heard about them before )
- Mika – I really like his music and energy. LIVE
- Cranberries – They came recently but the timing and distance were not possible for me to see them. I hope they will come again. LIVE at Jakarta
- David Cook – Will see him soon
- Shakira – Despite her trashy look once she had been Americanized, I still love her songs. LIVE
- Coldplay – they might be expensive, but if not, I would love to see them. LIVE
- Suede – They had come but I couldn’t see it because it was a blackberry owner special event . LIVE at Jakarta
- Celine Dion – only if the ticket is reasonable. LIVE
- X – Japan - a legendary Japanese Band. LIVE
- Do As Infinity LIVE
- Red Hot Chili Pepper LIVE
- Mr Big – I have seen them once and love to see them again. LIVE at Jakarta
- Phillip Phillips – another American Idol I like. LIVE
That’s all I can think right now
I would love to know what you think of my list and what’s on your list
Maybe we have some bands in common
