Concert Archive

I've decided to organize some of my concert pictures, and also try to document my concert history. Here's a list of all the big concert's I've seen ...that I can remember. Those that have hyper-links have pictures and maybe even some video. I've also added a 5 star rating system...because I'm geeky like that.
