List Rules Bands that don't tour anymore (as the original line-up)

I go to a lot (A LOT) of concerts and, accordingly, feel a hole in my heart for having never been able to see these bands live. When MCA died, I couldn't figure out why it affected me so much until I realized it meant I'd never be able to see a band I grew up with- and was greatly influenced by- play live. It was, in many ways, a tragedy.

So these are the bands I wish I could have seen play live. The best bands that don't exist anymore. The best live acts that no longer tour. Sad face.
