What I do is scan my tickets and save them on my computer since the printing will fade over the years. I do remember all the concerts I've been to but how much of each concert I actually remember varies!
These days, I can just go onto Youtube hours after a show has ended and someone will have uploaded some vids.

My life's greatest regret! (Well, aside from refusing an invitation from a hot young girl when I was 19 to visit her while her parents were away, because I had tickets to see Ten Years After!!)

Thanks, HTF. What is amazing is that except for three concerts, I saw all of them here in Serbia. That was simply impossible during my teenage years in the 90-ies, thanks to the war, UN sanctions, etc. But after 2000, it all changed.

Wow, those are some mighty impressive lists. I’ve been to more countries than concerts but I suspect some of you could say the opposite. Here’s my meager and slightly embarrassing list in chronological order:
Ozzy
Rush
David Bowie
Psychedelic Furs
Thompson Twins (oh wait, by some act of divine mercy the show was cancelled)
U2
Stones
Mick Taylor
Cowboy Junkies
Mick Taylor
Stones
Avril Lavigne (dragged by girlfriend)
Maroon 5 (ditto)
Stones (dragged girlfriend)

I remember seeing Jeff Beck at the Shepherds Bush Empire in London ages and walking out in bored disgust. Then many years later, I saw him again at the Royal Albert Hall (I think it was 2013 or maybe 2014) ... he was still boring and I was yet again disgusted and walked out about halfway through, couldn't take any more !

I recognise his talent, but boy is he boring in concert ... so sorry Jeff, but never again. Not here anyway. thumbs down

I'm extremely jealous of anyone who got to see Led Zeppelin or The Who while Keith Moon was still alive. I only ever saw The Who on their 1989 Join Together Tour, which I enjoyed although it was rather atypical for The Who to employ something like 39 musicians and an elephant to recreate their studio records....

Yup, somehow I have a perfect memory for concerts no matter how much was going on.
Since my first show in 1973 when Black Oak opened for Humble Pie I saw 1000-1500 concerts (and counting, but these days at no where near the same rate as I did from 1976-1999 (when tickets cost 5bucks to 30 bucks). I saw everyone. It would be easier to say who I didn't see than list who I did see. Acts I missed... The Blues Brothers, Led Zeppelin, The Runaways, The New Barbarians, Sex Pistols.

I didn't bother with the Stones until 1981 (almost in 1978) but 30-40 times since then (and counting) grinning smiley

yes, I can remember at least a little bit of almost every show I saw. Even of every Dylan show I saw (some 125) I am able to remember some songs of the setlist, the atmosphere etc. (I only mix up things a little bit when I saw three or more shows on consecutive days at the very same venue).
