Gigs you thought you'd go to, eventually missed and wished you had gone to...

When I check the What gigs are you going to in the coming months? thread I can't help thinking of missed opportunities. So there...

When Nirvana came to Paris, with Television Personalities as an opening act, I thought about going, took too long and believed the venue would be sold out. I thought "so what" and rested sure they'll be back less than two years after that. But then Kurt Cobain shot himself.

I thought about going to see Sun Kil Moon in Paris two years ago and thought that Jesu would be the main act. I don't know Jesu. All I know's that it's a whatshisname project, by a former Napalm Death founder, who had a record released as Sweet Tooth (that I listened to and didn't like).
I wasn't too fond of the idea of that order and decided I wouldn't go.
I wish I hadn't and will take a two day holiday to see SKM in Paris this november.

Same reason: the most interesting band being the opening act and me not wanting to stay for a band I wasn't interested in the least... Mercury Rev came to Paris right after their first album, while Baker was still their singer, and I didn't buy a ticket.
The Levellers were the main act.
