Probably the US. However, both the US and the UK (combined) are in the minority on my list of top ten bands.

I think Finland takes gold in this count for me.

Is Nick Cave, Dead Can Dance and ACDC considered UK or Aus? All made their name for themselves in the UK and only one member of ACDC is from AUS but that is where they first started. If it wasn't for the UK there would be no Dead Can Dance or Nick Cave as we know them, IMO.

I'm not going to make a list, but I'd say an offhand estimate is that 7-8 of my top ten are from the UK and the rest are from the United States. My favorite band of all time is from England (Muse).

If only I was British, it would make going to concerts so much easier . On top of that I love me some Barclay's Premier League.

I love some Barclay James Harvest, Barclay Plager and the Barkley family (The Big Valley).

That's a fairly bold proclamation considering 'time' has not ended yet.

Yea, if you lived in London it's possible to go to a concert every day of the week, if you can afford it.
