Was just having this conversation with a buddy the other day. We had tickets for the Green day/weezer concert the summer of 2020 but we all know what happened. After all the civil unrest, we decided we wouldn't go downtown when offered in 2022.

That said, the one band I regret never seeing was Tom Petty. I hope I can check out Green Day at some other venue as I grew up with them.

There are a lot of big names and bands I never saw - but didn't really have the gumption to go see either.  The Stones were here several times; I didn't care.  Bob Dylan is from Minnesota; he was too aloof for my taste.  The list goes on.

The ones I regret...

Bob Seger and the Silver Bullet Band.  I like acts with great bands (like Springsteen and the E Street Band).

Prince - in the top 5 guitar players of all time* - but there was usually just too much hype and hoopla to get tickets for his auditorium shows.  I had friends that would bounce from club to club in downtown Minneapolis hoping to catch him doing a surprise set, but I didn't want to work that hard.  He played a show at the Myth in 2013 and tickets were $250 each.  I didn't want to invest $500 to see him play so we passed.  Turns out he donated all of that money to charity, but that still didn't change my mind.  He died 3 years later.

I saw Stevie Ray Vaughn twice, BUT...  I really wanted to road trip to what turned out to be his last concert in Alpine Valley Music Theatre in East Troy, Wisconsin, but didn't.

* Eric Clapton was asked what it felt like to be the greatest player in the world.  He replied, "I don't know, ask Prince."
