Best band you ever saw live

I'm gonna go with Avenged sevenfold. Seen them many times and I hope for many more. One that blew me away was Crystal Lake. They're a Japanese band that's growing in popularity over here. They opened on this tour with some big metal acts and stole the show in my opinion. It was their first U.S. tour so I think they had something to prove and they killed it. Another favorite is Periphery from Baltimore, MD. If you haven't heard of them go listen to "Reptile" of their album "P4: Hail Stan". 16 minute opening track is a total power move.

Okay.....lets take a turn here-

Worst concert you've ever been to?

Blink 182 is/was fucking awful live. Cage the elephant was also pretty terrible when I saw them headline, they opened a show I went to and redeemed themselves though.

Blink was my favorite band for probably 10+ years. Buddah, Cheshire Cat, Dude Ranch were sooooo fucking good. Them playing back then, waay different story than now/2010s.

Ya that can be said about a lot of bands, but I've seen Bush, Everclear, Local H, all in the last few years and omg they were great.

I saw Blink when I was in high school or shortly afterwards. (early 2000s).

thier album stuff was a big part of soundtrack to my teenage years.

Worst....Incubus...only because it was my first concert and i took my first real relationship to the concert as a birthday present for her since they were her favorite band circa 2001-2002 I think. She dumped me the following week and told me she would have done it a month or so earlier but felt bad because I got her the concert tickets already and she didn't want to be scummy and go with someone else haha.

More recently the worst was DJ Khaled at EDC Vegas a couple years ago. Kept having technical issues and kept trying so hard to pump up the crowd at the stage. When his time was up he refused to leave the stage for the next act, eventually being booed by everyone and practically dragged off by event staff.

I’m giving my identity away from here on in, but do any of you practice or play any instruments?

I’ve played and occasionally play guitar for over 15 years. All self-taught: AKA listen to songs on repeat like I’m borderline autistic until I have memorized the riffs and licks until I can play them myself. Lots of melodic metal listening has helped increase my skill.
I am also a self taught autist who shreds the gnar on my guitar, going on 10 years now. I'm only 981 subscribers away from being monetized on youtube and even though I think the the bros on this site would totally hook it up and smash the like and subscribe buttons, it's probably not worth doxxing myself given some of the controversial thoughts I opine on this site.

That brief shining moment in time when MTV mattered, KISS put their make up back on and they had the hottest concert ticket in the world

Tool! I didn’t really know who they were and was invited by a friend. Went out and bought all their albums the next day!
You are a poser. Real fans smoke a half ounce of weed and watch all their music videos with the lights off then when they come down they take 2 hits of acid and look at the album art then the entire catalog Alex Grey. Maybe you were employed by the FAA by the time you saw them and couldn’t. Sorry I called you a poser. I’ve been known to rush to judgement on this site. But hey. Glad you enjoyed the show. They are great.

Best:
Radiohead - In Rainbows Tour
Muse - Absolution Tour
Modest Mouse - Moon and Antarctica Tour
Brand New - The Devil and God Tour
Tool - Lateralus Tour
Father John Misty - I Love You, Honeybear Tour
Flaming Lips first time. Second time seeing them you realize it’s pretty much the exact same show and they are terrible musically live.

Worst:
TV On The Radio
Chain Smokers
Pretty much any DJ that presses spacebar on his Mac book then proceeds to dance like an idiot while yelling into the mic “let me see those fucking hands!!!!”
RHCP
Blink 182
 
Top Bottom
