LIMELIGHT MAGAZINE’S TOP 10 CONCERTS OF 2018

In 2018, we attended 21 concerts, which is down from 28 in 2017. Of the acts we got to see perform, we saw 17 for the first time. It was another great year to remove so many bands from our bucket list.  Many of the other artists who we’ve seen more than once, such as Steve Wilson (six times), Primus (11 times) and Kansas (eight times), put on the best shows we’ve ever seen them perform. So, without further ado, here is Limelight Magazine’s top 10 concerts of 2018, which is followed by the complete list of shows we’ve seen this year. (Please note: this list does not include any shows booked by JKB Entertainment Group/Limelight Magazine in 2017).
