What are some bands you wish you saw live? It could be a band that's still touring, a favorite lineup of a band or a band that broke up or ended.

Any of Frank Zappa's bands.  He retired from touring before I started going to shows.

Saw his son in 2006 though.  He did his old man proud.

classic ELP for sure... BSS tour. 

Been told many times by friends a bit older than me.. that no group.. no tour. Not Zeppelin, the Stones, Floyd, even the Who touched the show that ELP put om.  Single best concert show of the early 70's.

not prog fans saying that..  music fans.. which is all they were back then.  No axes to grind.. 
I find your lack of Bassoon disturbing.....

mostly bands that were over before I was of age to go to concerts (which was 76 for small stuff) and 78 for bigger venues and 81 to clubs serving alcohol >> though I did get in many times under-aged, as I looked somewhat older)...



Since then, there are few bands I wished I'd seen at least once.... and I'll think of some, as soon as I remember them

There is no act more pretentious and self-indulgent than labeling another's art as pretentious and self-indulgent.

Wish I could have seen my favourite band Triumvirat when they toured the States in support of their album Illusions On A Double Dimple, opening for Fleetwood Mac. Koellen, Fritz and Bathelt live!
           Also wish I had seen Klaus Doldinger's Passport in the early seventies,
         Oh, and Dzyan in some out of the way European outdoor show in the mid seventies.
