How many of you have ever attended concerts and whom have you seen?
I've been to two so far but I don't count the first because it was some guy I didn't know and I left half-way through.
The second one was AC/DC a couple years ago in Amsterdam. Quite a spectacle. In an hour or so, I'm going to see a Gigantour show, which includes Megadeth, Lacuna Coil, Motorhead, and Volbeat.
So far (not counting the warm-up acts before said bands) I've only seen Sabaton, In Flames and Rammstein.
What you think is IRRELEVANT.
Too many to remember.
Would be nice to go to one again, though. I haven't seen a live band play in ages it's always untis untis untis electronica.
I've been to loads of concerts, and even more local shows.
The Devil Wears Prada x2
The Acacia Strain
Memphis May Fire
The Word Alive
...just to name a few.
The first few are from when I was younger (DON'T LAUGH) but here we go:
S Club 7
The Ting Tings
All American Rejects
Got two coming up as well, seeing Rammstein next Thursday and Enter shikari on the March 19th! They've come round quick!
I got another local punk show to go to tomorrow. I'm friends with a few of the band members so I figured I would go see their set.
Gigantour kicked ass. Here's what went down:
-Lacuna Coil: I though they were going to play later, but whatever. Out of the four bands, I only listen to them and Megadeth, so I was very happy to see them and I recorded their whole set. Unfortunately, their "set" was only 5 or 6 songs from their last 3 albums. I don't care much for the latter, but damn it, why the hell didn't they let them play more? Not only that, but the crowd (only half the stadium) were a bunch of assholes. Fuck the audience. I loved them.
-Volbeat: I recall sampling one of their albums on iTunes and I didn't like what I heard. I don't even remember what it was, so I wasn't thrilled to see them. To my surprise, they were really good. I liked heir lead guitarist strutting his stuff wearing sunglasses indoors. At the end of their last song, they play the intro of "Reign In Blood" by Slayer and that just tore shit up. The crowd went into a frenzy and mosh pit turned into a cyclone. I though they would've played the whole song, but whatever, I didn't care since I don't like Slayer. At some point half-way through their set, my friend and I were constantly smelling marijuana. Some douchenozzle in front of us was smoking it.
-Motorhead: Awww, shit. When they entered, the whole crowd (that was seated) stood up for them and most stayed up for their entire performance. I don't listen to them, but I am familiar with some songs and peoples' obsession with Lemmy. Of course, people fuckin' chanted "LEMMY" multiple times between a bunch of their songs. Right before they played "Ace of Spades", Lemmy said, "Here's a surprise song for ya. You weren't expecting this one." He started playing the first riff and the crowd erupted. My favorite part of them, however, was the drummer. This old coot destroyed the drums and had a several minute-long drum solo. Goddamn.
-Megadeth: Here we go. The main dish. Of course everyone stood up and stayed up the entire hour-and-a-half. I didn't know (listened) to most songs because I'm slowly making my way up their discography, but I managed to recognize and "sing" along to a couple, destroying my lungs. It was nice seeing Dave be enthusuastic about some songs, including his gesturing on "Sweating Bullets". Unfortunately, they didn't have an encore; probably because they're playing with other bands. Kick-ass show.
-Unfortunately, those stupid assholes didn't let me bring in my camcorder, even though I was allowed with it when I saw AC/DC in Amsterdam. FUCK. I had to resort using my iPhone. The video and audio quality is shit, but I still managed to record all of Lacuna Coil, the first song of Volbeat and Motorhead, and all of Megadeth. I was freakin' out that the battery might run out but it managed until it was 4% left. With all the bands, of course, people were throwing shit on-stage, and there were a few close calls, including Dave almost being hit by a water bottle.
-A funny thing was that behind us for the whole show, there were a couple of guys death growling cheers after each song.
-Sitting closer than I was with AC/DC, it was soooo cool seeing the bands right in front of me. I don't even know how to describe the feeling of seeing some favorite legendary musicians right there. I need to go to these more often.

Wow, you people saw a lot of bands. I' thinking of going to a Rockstar Mayhem show in the summer.
not many. I went to two of my old friend's band's shows. And more recently, I saw another friend of mine and his band play, along with a few other bands that I already knew and liked. Those bands were MonstrO, Thou, and Black Tusk. I got the members of Black Tusk to sign a shirt I bought while I was there. great night. Everybody rocked.

I think that's all of them.
Shit, I didn't actually think I'd seen that many bands, fuck dude.
illicit makes a damn good signature.
I uploaded what I recorded from the Gigantour here if any of you want to see. I recorded all of Lacuna Coil, the first song of Volbeat and Motorhead, and all of Megadeth. Again, I used my crappy iPhone to record, so it's pretty shit, especially since by the time Megadeth showed up, think I blew one of the speakers.
I've gone to a lot of local metal, punk, rock and grunge shows with smaller name bands. I've performed in a few as well.
For big bands, my favorite that I've seen would have to be Motley Crue.
I was only 13 when I saw them. Shit was fucking nuts. They were playing porn harder than any porn I had seen before on the megavision in the back of the band.
My mind was blown.
There's a big indie scene around where I live, so I've seen a load of local shows. I've also learned to hate indie music. No big name concerts, but I'm gonna try to go see Rise Against when they're close.

I saw 4 boobies.
I was at Las Vegas and could've seen them twice, but I wasn't old enough to be allowed in. Bullcrap.
I've been to two rock festivals before. They were amazing and I really hope I can go to more in the future.
I laugh at your sigs!

Do you remember who were playing?
I just got back from a Pink Floyd cover band tonight.
They are called The Machine. If you were going to see a Pink Floyd cover band, i'd see them.
I have also seen:
Some shitty alternative band thing I saw in 9th grade. I only went to talk to a girl. I only remember Blink-182.
MGMT/Devendra Banhart (At MWPP)
Broken Bells (where I got James Mercer and Danger Mouse's autograph)
Of Montreal (again) with Janelle Monae
Toro Y Moi
Animal Collective/Crystal Castles (At MWPP)
A Grateful Dead cover band called On The Bus
maybe more, i can't remember.
I've been to about fifteen concerts now, give or take...
remarkable bands (by my standards) I've seen include,
Korn, Disturbed, System of a Down, Marilyn Manson, Rob Zombie, Slipknot, Avenged Seven Fold, Ozzy Osbourne, Black Sabbath, Iron Maiden, Slayer, My Chemical Romance, The Used, Panic at the Disco, Fall Out Boy, Linkin Park, Snoop Dogg... and I'm sure I'm missing others, but whatever.
Oh, man. I have terrible luck with concerts. So far, I've missed Animal Collective, Phantogram, and Black Moth Super Rainbow, and Radiohead is sold out already.
I haven't been to any good ones recently, as a result.
Bread makes you FAT!?
I have listened to a concert of the philharmonic. I personally find it monotone.
"What seest thou else. In the dark backward and abysm of time?"
I'll be going to my first one tonight actually. Webster hall, several bands will be playing there
The guy below me is gay
i have been to concerts a couple of times during chrismas and new year. it is a good way to celebrate toether with my families.
and now, several weeks later, i have to attend a concert and write a concert report on one of the works as part of my assignment. (yes, even a math major has to take some humanities courses to fulfil the curricuum requirements).
i think most of the works in the upcoming concert are written in the classical and romantic period.
Yeah, I make no sense.
