Fun life list: concerts (updatable)
After the last post and another poor slept night, I was inspired to share. Besides starting last night, worked on it most of today. Below are concerts I’ve attended, recollected from clues and connections I could remember; including website databases/searches and wikis (no ticket stubs, receipts, pictures, nor confirmation emails etc). May not be 100%, but if listed in top section without any question marks, most likely I’m fairly sure about. I reached out to some contacts who might have information on other additions and will update. Other notes listed below in another paragraph.
