“Another thing, I rarely go to a concert if I have to sit down... I can't stand sitting. I HAVE to be out in the pit to get the full enjoyment of the concert.”
“Best concert you have ever been too?
Mine was Harry Connick Jr. It was after he released his 2 funk albumn, Star Turtle. We got lucky with row 3 center seats. Little did we know, but we would come out into the audience and sit right next to us (right next to the wife) while he was singing one of his songs. I shook his hand before he returned back to the stage.
To this day, I still have not washed my hand!”
“Probably Music as a Weapon II, I went because I liked Disturbed, I left Loving Disturbed - Continues to be my favorite band. They put on a good show, I totally agree with their whole take on religion and "music as a weapon" theory.
As far as concerts go though, slipknot comes in at a close second, they put on an awesome show.
In general though, I prefer a much smaller scale concert, just a small club setting with a couple hundred people - just enough to mosh. Some of the best small club shows I've seen were Soil... Drowning Pool... and Lostprophets.
I guess that was kind of an extended answer to the best "concert" - short answer: MAAWII”
“Well to each his own, I'd rather spend $40 on a good ballgame than SOAD, actually its worse than that you'd have to pay me to go. But at my age I'm out of touch with the genre so who cares.”
“The last ballgame I went to, Twins against somebody... you can see how much attention I pay to the game, I got in for free, into the Cub foods Football press box. I mostly concentrated on eating all of the free food and drinking all of the free pop, while chatting with cub foods exec's, occasionally glancing down at the field to watch the dudes chase after the little ball.”
“"occasionally glancing down at the field to watch the dudes chase after the little ball.”
Now thats funny! Frankly though I think you are right, the grub is often more entertaining than the game. Having thought about I would rather have Van Halen tix than pretty much any game tix.”
“Now Van Halen, last time they were in town tickets were $80, no way I would ever pay that much for them.”
“So, ozzfest was scheduled for this Sunday and I was not going to be able to attend. But apparently Ozzy is having some trouble with his voice, and the show is postponed until Sept. 10, which I will be able to attend and I just purchased my ticket! Now I'm psyched.”
“I've always wanted to see Black Label Society but the only time they tour in the summer is with the Ozzfest and they never come closer than 3 hours in the winter. I just can't see sitting out in the sun all day to see BLS play for 20 minutes.”
“I saw Ozzfest in Camden NJ 'bout 5 years ago. Slayer, Godsmack and lots of girls with painted boobs, it was awesome! LOL”
“Last year when I went to see Disturbed there was hardly a shirt on any woman in the place. I told my wife it was the best concert I've ever been to. LOL!”
“I love Disturbed!!! Their next tour doesn't take them through MN, but I might have to make a trip to Fargo to see them again.”
“I'm waiting for System of a Down on August 26th”
“stripes 9/10 at the murat, baby!”
“taking my son to see green day next sunday night....”
“I'm goin to SOAD on sept. 23, I thought about the stripes show - I'm not into them enough to shell out that much for them though, thought about greenday as well, but i'm not gonna go if I can't be on the floor. NIN is comin up as well.”
“Robert Randolf and his Family Band are playing a free concert about 40 min from my house on Sun (tommorrow).
“Darkstar Orchestra at the Bottle and Cork, Dewey Beach Delaware. A must see Aug. 11”
I Use To Live Just South............Ocean City, MD
“Rob Barraco will be with DSO for the Dewey Beach show. Should be more than excellent.
Jerry will have been gone 10 years now on Tues. Tempest fugit.

“Are you there Budder? Already got my tix.
I miss Jerry also. : (”
“Leon Russell at 'The Mission' on Saturday 8/27.....
"I'm Out In The Woods...." !”
“Hmm... I'm goin to Sawyer Brown tonight, I know it doesn't quite fit in with my genre, but it's a free show what the heck, I don't even know who that is.”
“Went to see Dar Williams a week ago and Dr. John a couple of weeks before that.”
“Dave Matthews Band tops concert rankings
free upcoming tour information (TOURS DU JOUR)
Policy With Teeth”
“going to see Paul McCartney in Philadaelphia at the wachovia center on Sept 23rd.”
Summer Rock Falls Reival Weekend Festival
“Going to see Velvet Revolver and Chevell tonight. Not really looking forward to it but I know it's one of those concerts that will be better than I think it will. I've had to sit through Chevell before and they suck ass.
James Taylor is in concert on the other end of the state tonight too. THAT'S where I want to be.”
“I've seen JT in concert. Loved it. It happened to be the night Princess Diana died, btw.”
“Well, the Velvet Revolver concert turned out to be everything I was hoping it wouldn’t be. They sucked bad. The guy at the sound board should have been strung up by his balls. It was like a big muddy wall of sound and the only thing you could distinguish was the drums. Couldn’t hear Slash’s playing at all. It was that kind of messy sound where they start a song and you can’t even tell what song it is. Combine this with the drunk guy two rows behind us that was screaming “ROCK AND PHUCKIN’ ROLL!!!”, every two minutes the whole time and I was glad when the wife wanted to leave before the encore.”
“That sucks Nigal. I've been to shows like that. Makes you wish you hadn't spent the $$$”
“I pulled off my night off last night and ended up at the Seether, Crossfade and Dark New Day concert and I'm glad I made it - the show was awesome, even Crossfade rocked more than I expected. Seether played a lot of well known songs, the show closed with a combination of all the bands' members playing a few cover songs including Deftones and Alice in Chains. Hell yeah, what a night.”
I'm goin to see Green Day in a few weeks - taking my daughter to her first 'real' rock and roll show. And a couple of weeks after that we're gettin to see NIN.”
“Son Volt just anounced they are coming to Chicago! $20 a ticket! Gotta love that!”
“Roam around... you are taking your daughter to NIN??”
“Simer, did DND drummer throw his sticks a lot, and miss about half the time. I saw them open for Chevelle and I think he miss about half. I'm hoping he stopped, because it kind of looked bad”
“Saw Los Lobos tonight.”
“I do recall seeing the drummer toss his sticks quite a bit, usually he caught them - though he had to adjust or turn the stick around before he could continue playing.”
“Via Con Lobos, muchacho”
“I caught the Kings of Leon Saturday night with KabinKamper. It was the fastest pace I've ever seen on stage. They prolly played 20-25 songs in an hour and a half.”
“My son saw the Boston Tori Amos concerty last night. They had a contest for six audience members to sing a Tori song - and whoever got the best response from the audience would get moved up to excellent seats. He won! His first performance for a large audience is a success.”

“Hey, I saw Kings of Leon a couple of weeks ago in Denver - small venue; great show!
Secret Machine played before them, and I actually like their show better, very different music style.”
“We blew off Secret Machine. We were hangin out with friends until the last minute. Glad to hear they were good.”
“I have System of a Down and NIN coming up before too long... I'm quite pissed that I have to miss the Disturbed show, but I've heard rumors that they're coming to town this winter.”
