I don't want to hang up my rock n roll shoes
I get a good time feeling every time I hear those blues.

My fave current blues band - Hazmat Modine! I am desperate to see those guys play live and do some dirty, backwater blues. The only other artist I really want to see (who has never ventured this way to my knowledge) is Janelle Monae. No idea what genre you would put her in as her songs go from one end of the spectrum to the other. Yep, those two would be on my dream billing!

Two observations:
1) The Black Keys are the only group in that list that interest me
2) The Black Keys are not old or as famous as the others in that list
3) There is some debate in my mind whether some of the names you have mentioned fit the description of
Being "ALIVE"

Crimson Projekct.. as a bonus you'd likely get sets from Tony Levin's Stick Men and the Adrian Belew Power Trio, awesome.
