Music Monday: My Concert Addiction - Part I

I went to my first concert when I was 17 years old.
Since then, I have been to 175 shows, concerts and festivals. And, yes, I've kept track.
I've seen some artists only once and others more than a dozen times.
I've driven all night for shows (yep, plural), and I've even hosted one in my living room.
I don't want to think about how much money I've spent ... but it's all been worth it. 
I've met some amazing people -- musicians and fellow fans -- through my musical journey.

I thought I'd show you the eleven musical acts I've seen the most, in ascending order.
I'll include the show count, the number of states I've seen them in, the date of my first show
and a video of my one of my favorite songs by each of them.
