What Musical Act — Dead or Alive — Would You Want to See Live?

Over the weekend, I was hanging out with friends when David Bowie's "Young Americans" hit the jukebox and, of course, everyone started singing along. It suddenly struck me that that song would probably be awesome to hear live, and that I bet Bowie gives a fantastic live performance. I started thinking of other musicians I'd love to check out in concert — including those whom I'll never get the chance to see.

Of the musicians from days gone by, of course, it would have been a thrill to see the Beatles live. I would have truly loved to have seen Johnny Cash in person, and would have given pretty much anything to have seen Louis Armstrong live (actually, there's some great footage of these two performing together, check it out after the jump). In the land of the living, I hope to someday get to an Estelle concert, and though this might seem lame to some of you, I'd jump at the chance to see The Police in concert.

I'll stop there so you can weigh in. Who do you hope to see someday? Who do you wish you could have seen, once upon a time? To check out the Louis Armstrong/Johnny Cash video and add your thoughts,

i got to see one of bowie's last shows at MSG and it was fantastic!!!!! it would be something i would see again in a heartbeat. however... if i had to pick one concert to see it would have to be nirvana. the inner 13 year old girl in me will forever be depressed that i never did.

I'd LOVE to see Judy Garland live, and at different stages in her career. Say, when she was a fresh young starlet, and then older after she left hollywood. To hear Over the Rainbow at such different points in her life would be at once mesmerizing and heartbreaking.

Actually, I've really been meaning to catch Franz Ferdinand and The Hives in concert but they rarely tour in the U.S. and even less likely near where I live.

I would LOVE LOVE LOVE to have seen Marvin Gaye perform live. My mother saw him six times and to this day, says no one can touch him. On the flip side, when I was a kid, I was obsessed with the movie Mozart would be on my dream list too! BTW, how awesome is that clip od Armstrong and Cash? Goosebumps.

I saw U2, the Crystal Castles, Coldplay, Bowie and Arcade Fire so I think I can pretty much die happy. However I'd give my boss away to see Kent, the Killers, the Scissor Sisters, Janis Joplin and Jimi Hendrix, and of course INXS with Michael Hutchence.

How could I forget David Bowie and INXS w/ Hutchence; I love their music.

1. The Goo Goo Dolls 2. Jack's Mannequin {Both tie for my favorite group. Their music just speaks to me. Johnny Rzeznik and Andrew McMahon are two wonderful songwriters.} Others that would be amazing: Led Zeppelin (During their prime years.) Madonna (This day in age, to hear all the hits.) The Who (also during prime.) Aerosmith. Circa late 80's or mid 90's. Eve 6 Sugarland

Queen- with Freddie Mercury Nirvana- RIP Kurt The early Pink Floyd with Roger Waters included Sublime-RIP Bradley The Doors- My parents almost saw them in concert. The first night they went to the show and while the rest of the band was in Sacramento, Jim was still in L.A. When they finally got Jim to Sacramento he proceeded to moon the audience and then spout profanities at them for arresting him. Madonna Jimi Hendrix
