Old May 2nd, 2006, 07:21 PM        Concerts you've been to.
The first concert I ever went to was this Supertramp concert in the Summer of 2002, for they were supporting their album,Slow Motion, and had played here before (I believe my dad had seen them play there a longass time ago. Having played my parents Crime of the Century cassette all the time (that and the Doors Soundtrack, back then) I was happy to hear that they would be playing at the Moncton Colliseum. I was a little dissapointed to hear that their lead singer and guitarist, Roder Hodgeson, wasnt playing with them (who sang lead on songs like "Dreamer", and "School"), and had actually left the band back 1983). Anyways, it could have been a bit better, as I was that into their newer material, and Rick Davies's gruff vocals didn't sound that gruff (then again, the guy was in his late 50's), but it was pretty cool to hear the classic songs.

I also went to this big Rolling Stones concert just last summer, and bands like Our Lady Peace, and the Tragically Hip (they are huge in Canada) were opening up, which excited me. Maroon 5 also played there, which as bad as it sounds, despite their singer, the band itself was pretty good with their instruments. Anyways, As cool as the Stones playing here was, the experience felt a bit marred by being so far away from the stage and having to watch a lot of it on the Jumbotron. There were a few songs that I obviously wish they had played (Wild Horses, Emotional Rescue, She's a Rainbow), but hey, they sounded great, and Mick Jagger was all over the stage. getting home wasnt so fun, as there were fucking 800,000 people there, and the crowds were huge and pushing and shoving to get to the buses, and it took about 3 hours to get back.

Anyways, I just got some tickets to see Our Lady Peace, again, on the 16(I think) at the Moncton Colliseum, and I cant wait for that. I hope to ask a girl to come with me to that.

I've been to a few concerts in my life.

I saw Bad Religion at the Tabernacle in Atlanta when I was in High School years ago. It was really fucking great.

I saw Mindless Self Indulgene 2 times at the Masquerade in Atlanta as well. As much as I like seeing MSI I can't stand 95% of the people who I have to share the room with.

Then I saw Morrissey about year ago at the Tabernacle. I really loved the show but it was 60 fucking bucks and way hella crowded due to some overselling.

I saw Sunn a while back and I couldn't walk straight afterwards. They were in nordic robes, we were all seated in enormous leather chairs and the room stank of skunk. The guy who runs the local indie music shop walked out halfway through.

Saw Isis as well, they were mammoth.

I was dragged along to Dragonforce as well - they put everything into their shows but jesus christ their fans are nerdy. Spoke to the guitarist afterwards who was mullered and kept going on about how they were a "stadium band" and "should be huge".

The best nights have probably been DnB though, DJ Hype playing a cave party in Manorca was mental. Glory days.

i really haven't seen that many bands. there are a lot of people i really want to see before it's too late...

- lots of bluegrass shows and loretta lynn at the grand ol' opry and john anderson at a middle school when i was a kid.
- huey lewis & the news (twice) when i was a teenager. once, stevie ray vaughan opened up.
- the dead (eight times) and phish (twice).
- the band.
- crosby, stills, and nash.
- the who.
- sheryl crow.
- scott miller.

plus, i've gotten to open up for .38 special, steppenwolf, the marshall tucker band, the guess who, and some other old bands like that when i was singing with a band in the late '90s.

edit: had to adjust due to previous memory lapses.

lots.

my two first shows were within a month of one another in mid/late 1994. one was better than ezra (before that "good" song blew up all huge and shit), skiploader, and dirty three. it was a really great show for a 13 year old.
the other was his hero is gone, logos circle seven, blacklist, and probably some more i've forgotten (maybe staynless?). it was a nice introduction to jackson/memphis hardcore punk and it stuck with me for quite some time.
it's hard to choose favorite bands i've seen. i dunno. lightning bolt, ovo, wooden wand, mogwai, lau nau, caroliner rainbow, and a few more immediately spring to mind though.

Lucky. Tragedy plays here a lot but, well...

I've seen uhh... a shitload of shows, ranging from huge arenas to small house shows.

I was at Coachella this past weekend, for one.

Before that, I saw Rob Zombie/Lacuna Coil. Good show, except for one of the biggest jackasses I ever met who started a fight with a 14-year old and started humping my leg during Lacuna Coil

One of my favorite all-time shows was Batfest, Halloween 2005. It had Jello Biafra + Melvins, The Dicks, Zolar X, Jay Munly, and Turn Me On Dead Man. All of the acts were top notch (well, TMODM got a bit tedious) and seeing all (but one) original members of The Dicks doing probably their final show was beyond words, not to mention that Gary Floyd can still belt out a howl, even though the guy's almost sixty.

As for local, there's a community center here that I've seen some (now) big bands at when they were still starting out. Plot to Blow up the Eiffel Tower, Light This City, Bleeding Kansas, some others.

The only widely acclaimed bands I've seen is The Queers and Marky Ramone. I have been to a thousand local shows though.

Yeah, it was awesome. Although, I was a little dissappointed because Kiss appeared first. I thought they'd be on after Aerosmith because of the fact that Laser Lights and Pyrotechnics look better in the dark. But I was wrong in the end because it was Aerosmith's Honkin' on Bobo exhibition and they had all sorts of neon lights and crap. Of course, the numerous individuals toking up didn't hurt, either.

I almost forgot about the VH1 Classic: Peter Frampton/Styx concert.
Bitchin'.

Kid Dynamite was the best live band I've ever seen. I saw them countless times.

I saw the Pixies a couple years back during that whole reunion tour. Not bad.

Saw Brian Wilson perform Smile two years back, and that was fantastic.

In was at a Great White concert. They were rockin' as always up until the point where some pyrotechnics lit the damn stage on fire. That was a huge buzzkill.

I found this list on my old website, and looking at the last entry I'd say it was made about five point five years ago. Yes, I'm painfully aware that a great many of these acts suck, but those that suck are not the reasons for which I went to their respective shows.

Gin Blossoms
Limp Bizkit
Rammstein
Korn
The Flies
The Living End
The Offspring
Fastball
Sugar Ray
Goo-Goo Dolls
Pennywise
Powerman 5000
The Verve Pipe
Everclear
Buck Cherry
Fear Factory
Loud Mouth
Kid Rock
Staind
Korn
Dent
Three Doors Down
Papa Roach
Bloodhound Gang
Godsmack
Kottonmouth Kings
Kittie
Wheatus
Disturbed
Fuel
Greenday
Stone Temple Pilots

Well, the concert is fast approaching, and although I couldn't get this girl to go with me, a buddy of mine is coming with me.

Well, I have to say although the opening bands, Pedestrian, Jets Overhead, and the Neverending White Light were mediocore at best and had no stage presence, OLP kicked ass. They actually performed this song that had never been played on record or anywhere before. Funny anicdote,though:

When the Neverending White Lights were playing this song, in which part of it sounded like "You can't always get what you want", these drunk guys I know from school started singing the chorus to the Stones song, and at the end, they were yelling "YOU RIPPED OFF THE STONES!". Also, after these flowers were put on the keyboard, someone was yelling "THERE'S A FUNERAL ONSTAGE"
