I don't really go to a lot of "rock concerts", as I tend to gravitate towards smaller shows at dive clubs/bars where most of the bands I like play. Here's a pretty complete list of every band I've ever seen regardless of where it was. I've omitted bands that I've played in/with over the years simply because listing them would require more thinking than I'm willing to do right now and it'd make the list far too long anyways.
Against Me! (7x)
Alkaline Trio (5x)
Bad Religion (6x)
Belle & Sebastian
Bouncing Souls (6x)
Built to Spill
Face to Face
Hot Water Music (2x)
Kool Keith (2x)
Less Than Jake (3x)
Me First & The Gimme Gimmes
Murder by Death (2x)
New Found Glory
None More Black (2x)
No Use for a Name (2x)
One Man Army (2x)
Reel Big Fish
Rise Against (5x)
Smoke or Fire (2x)
The Arcade Fire
The Draft (2x)
The Flaming Lips
The Lawrence Arms (8x)
The Living End
The Loved Ones
The Real McKenzies
The Soviettes (2x)
The Vandals (3x)
Toots & The Maytals
Tsunami Bomb (4x)

Most of the bands I'm listing are probably more heavy metal than 'rock'. But nevertheless...
Black Rebel Motorcycle Club (Rock)
Iggy Pop (Iggy pop)
Moby (Ehh... Can't really be defined)
Gothminister (Metal) *Signed my album and invited us backstage to meet...
Tristania (Metal) *Had a chat with most of the band members, who also signed my shirt.
Brutallica (Coverband, but pretty good at it too)
Black Sabbath w/ Ozzy (Rock/Metal)
Lumsk (Metal/Folk) *saw them twice in a few months. Great band.

Saw Pink Flyod in 94, then Roger waters in 2000, and recently saw David Gilmour (Lead Pink Flooyd guitar/singer) in April, and will see Roger Waters again this September and October. I am a Pink Floyd fanatic as you can see. I have been to see other musicians, but they just didn't compare...

That's all I remember from the top of my head. I still can't forgive myself for foregoing the only chance I had to see Rage Against The Machine in the fall of 99.
They are a shell of their former selves. A bunch of blowhards in their later days with a huge loss of their funkiness from the mid 80s.
As for me...I lost count of what concerts I have been to. Some highlights include...
Numerous U2 shows from the mid 80s onward.
Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers
Hootie and the Blowfish at a dive bar in Huntsville, AL before they became big (and subsequently burned out.)
Metallica in the 80s
Ringo Starr and his All-Starr Band
The Black Crowes
R.E.M. with the Indigo Girls and Drivin' N Cryin' opening up for them
Poison and RATT on the same stage
Quiet Riot at a small club in Atlanta
But my most varied venues for one performer has to be Jimmy Buffet. I've seen him give free concerts on the lawn of the Student union at University of Florida, arenas, outdoor theatres, huge stadiums, and at the airport in Gainesville while on the victory tour when Gov. Chiles won re-election back in 1994.
