Share This:

Since you’re a fan of the classic rock era, we wonder how many of the greats you’ve been fortunate enough to see perform live. We’ve listed 100 of the biggest names and fully recognize that many of your favorites may not be listed. (You’ll notice that such acts as the Doors, Jimi Hendrix and Janis Joplin are also omitted since they have all been gone for so long.)

Count up which ones you’ve seen and share with your friends to see which of you is the concert champ. (And, no… tribute bands don’t count… )

If you’ve ever said “I’ll see [them] next time”… Do yourself a favor and do it! Many of your favorite classic rock acts still rule on the road. When touring resumes, it will be as good a time as any… Treat yourself… and don’t have any regrets.

Tickets for 100s of artists will be available at Ticketmaster and StubHub.

(And, again, because we’ve limited this list to 100, we fully recognize that many of your favorites may not be listed.)
