2010 In Concerts

I went to a lot of concerts/shows this year. Maybe it's because this is the first year I have actually taken the time to write them all out? I am horrible at ranking, but I definitely had my favorites (they are in italics). I averaged about one concert a week. That really puts it in perspective. I think I got most of them. Here is to a great concert year in 2011! Anyone else see some good shows in 2010?
