Hey nova, that's awesome! He was just recently here, but I didn't go. Man that dude has some pipes on him.

A few months ago I wanted to take my 11 yr old to her 1st concert. Linkin Park, since we both like them... Holy crap, no way was I gonna spend $80 a ticket. Her 1st concert will have to wait, lol.

I've been to 150+ concerts.. Some great ones.. Some total crap ones. One of the worst being Guns n Roses hack in their hay day, lol.

I took my younger brother to see his favorite band...Avenged Sevenfold...they rocked but everyone else was horrible.

I saw Bob Dylan at the Shoot in Seattle last year at the Shoot...

I've been to a very wide variety of shows because of Bumbershoot.

I've seen Pink Floyd 4 times, the best one was Madison Wi , Camp Randall Stadium in 1994, it was 85 degrees and rained the whole show, what an awesome night.

Summerfest in Milwaukee is a great muic festival, Rock, Reagee, country. hip hop, whatever you want all for 1 ticket price. The big acts cost more if you want resevred seating but its a cool thing. Oh yea, and lots of BEER!!

Went to Manchester in about 1985 ish and saw Fleetwood Mac one of my all time faves, with Zeppelin. Had a GF who saw LZ, in concert, things were never the same after that, the Plant wig would always fall off.:D

OH nice...

I loved Soundgarden... I remember the first time I heard "Outshined" on the radio and I turned my car and drove directly to Tower Records on Sunset when I was living in LA to buy a copy of their CD Badmotorfinger and I loved all their CD's... It's really cool that Chris is touring acoustically but I wish that Soundgarden would do another farkin' record. :rolleyes: They got together last year to play live but now he's back to his own thing... What a band!

I'm really pumped to see that A Perfect Circle is touring again this year! :aok: I'm a huge TOOL fan and Maynard is probly my fave rock vocalist but I like APC's music even more. I saw them a couple of times years ago and they were both amazing shows. Unfortunately APC isn't going to come play in my city :mad: but they are playing a couple of my fave venues in the world... a 2000 seater venue in Atlanta called The Tabernacle and Red Rocks Amphitheatre outside of Denver. I don't get out to see too many shows so these two will be my splurge of 2011... Atlanta is about a 3.5 hour drive each way and I have a brother in Denver I can stay with so it won't be much beyond airfare, a rental car & some local high grade medz unless I mail some supplies ahead for the show...:D

WhoooooooooooooooooooHooooooooooooooooooooooooo​

Rock ON~! :headbang2:

Red Rocks is cool, but you need to find the right spot as the sound bounces around in there. I've seen quite a few shows there including Soundgarden, Blues Traveler, Ben Harper and Jack Johnson.

I worked with a few bands when I was a bit younger, sound was my main job. Most noted band was Taproot (before they were known as Taproot) but I was onstage with Overkill at the Milwaukee Metalfest back several years ago!

I'd say I've seen a few hundred concerts, Metallica 8 times, Overkill and Testament a dozen times, Pantera, Dio, Kiss, Bob Seger, REO Speedwagon and even (LMAO) John Schneider (the original Bo Duke). Haven't been to one since Ozfest in Chicago a few years back!

I'll have to dig out the ticket stubs...anyone remember the Mosters Of Rock concert???

I am the reigning king of horrible concerts. I have only been to 4 concerts in my entire life, one I never saw anything, and the other 3 were flat out awful. The one I am calling the best concert I ever went to was Tom Petty. I am calling it the best concert I ever went to because I never actually saw Tom Petty. This was only the 3rd time in my life that I had smoked marijuana, me and 3 other friends all went to the concert with two joints EACH. I was stupid enough to smoke both of mine back to back during the opening act (some guy playing bongos) and drank two beers. I passed out and when I woke up I was laying in the grass and Tom Petty was playing his last song.
Even more sad is the 3 other concerts I have been to: Hootie and the Blowfish, 2LiveCrew (on spring break at a club we were in), and The Spin Doctors....pretty bad history right there.

EDIT: O WAIT! I FORGOT! I did see one really cool concert. I saw Santana play at the Hard Rock in Vegas on New Year's Eve 1999, that was AMAZING.

So you make fun of us for talking about old concerts then immediately talk about a show you saw in '97?:rofl: :rofl: :rofl: We may be stupid stoners, but at least we ain't hypocritical stoners! (I kid, I kid, just joking, no offense intended)

Seen Waters 3 times then David Gilmour in 06, didnt see The Wall tour. I saw Gilmour in a small theater (The Paramount in Oakland Ca) and thought he put on a better show than Waters.
