I'm sure over the years, some of you have been to a few concerts. ME, i try to go at any chance I can. Here's my small but informative list:
Evanescence (With Three days Grace, Seether, and Breaking Benjamin)
Velvet Revolver (With Three days Grace)
METALLICA!!!! (With Godsmack) <--BEST FRICKING CONCERT EVER.

Im sure I went to others, I just cant remember them all..XD
Concerts I want to/hoping to attend:
And I also wanted to go to Taste of Chaos because of My Chemical Romance *drool*
I also missed Billy Talent, because I was grounded. But my friends got me some autographs....and the bassist left me a nice message saying: "haha, you're grounded, too bad, from John" I was like: O_O WOOT!
and a few more but cant remember at the minute
I don't leave in Paris ,so I can't see the great bands of other countries,
but I have seen many french bands in concert :
Tagada Jones ( with patch up, grayhound... a very good HxC concert )
Black Bomb A
Freedom for King-Kong ( with BSK, Dustbin... )
no offence here at all mate. But i really havent heard any of these at all. sorry
I haven't been to many concerts Only one, with Metallica, back in -98 I think. I'd like to see Opeth and iced Earth

, I don't know why, but the french bands are not
known in other countries... and we have an underground
scene with many bands, so it's difficult to them to be known...
Mindless Self Indulgence <-- My Fave Shows !!!
dunno i dont like to go to concerts often.. but MSI showz are ****** great
i have heard of the last two. They are proper hardcore rock innit. like heavy metal mosher stuff
Im the same way. If I had a label it would most likely be mosher/metal head more than anything else. I love concerts and moshing, it's really fun \m/
I've only ever made it to one 'big name' concert - the Foo Fighters.
I'd love to make it to something like a HIM, NIN or Alice Cooper gig sometime though if I ever can manage to raise enough cash.
Still in the meantime, I've got plenty of local unsigned metal bands in the area that regularly do gigs should I feel the need to get some live music in, though most of their stuff is a bit too hardcore for me, preferring the older metal like good old Iron Maiden and the like.
woot. I love Iron Maiden. I'd die for a chance to see HIM though. But I doubt they'd every come to Canada. NIN is also a good band that I like, haha i have so much merchandise
I don't have see anyone of these concerts but
but i like this groups and she is gone to my city (québec) :
3 days grace
[three doors down
staind (in the same concerts)]

Going to see U2 in December.
Well,I havent had the chance to go to that many concerts, mainly because of age restrictions. But here ya go :
R.E.M. in new plymouth, march of this year
Augustino at a free show in auckland city
and Im going to see the finn brothers on august 3
wow, REM? That's insane! There are only few bands that attend here, and REM wouldnt stop by, I'll betcha anything. Consider yourself lucky! Id have to go to Montreal or Toronto >_> And yay for U2!
All the concerts I ever went to were:
Kenny Chesney (country concert I really had no choice but to force myself to go to, long story )
Yea, I know, not a lot. Don't blame me.

during 3 days, I was in a festival in Crozon :
- First day :
Red cardel ( Rock/celtic music ) was great,
Joe Cocker... hum, good music, but during the live, we saw only Mr Cocker
and the musicians wasn't present...
And to finish this first day, Zion Train ( sound system )... wahouh !!! GREAT !!!
- Second day :
Orchestra do fuba ( brasilian music ) was good, Youssou n'dour ( african music ) too,
but Che sudaka (ska-punk) and Daby touré 'world music) was enormous...
- Last day :
good musoc during this last day, Ridan ( Music/text ),
Jerry cornic & DJ blue ( Drum n'bass with traditional music )
Amadou et Mariam ( african music ), Rachid Taha ( Rock )
and Sinsémilia ( ska )... very good day
and, during his show, Rachid taha ( he was drunk... normal ^^ ) say :
( in french, sorry )
" Enrico macias, Rachid Taha and Sinsémilia, il y a que les BRETONS
pour faire ça putain d'sa mère !!!" Thank you Rachid !!!
It's all good, I speak french!!
haha, actually, I've neverh eardo f any of those except for Joe cocker. And I still havent heard any of that music! But I see all of you have attended lots of stuff!
Just last night I went to:
Day OF Contempt
It was really great, and I got some really cool pictures as well!
The highlight was when the lead singer of the band pointed to me and my friend and said: "Wow, there are a lot of sexy ladies out here tonight!"
We were fourth row from the floor, so our eyesight was totally equal to his eyes. We werent too low, but high enough to be totally seen. This happened at a part where he was just talking to the crowd, and me and my friend were the only ones standing up, cheering and yelling "I love you Bert!" So yeah, that was AWESOME!
Got a pink Underoath Tee, and The Used Stickers/poster
My other friend who ended up attending as well (Not with me, but with her sister.) Was part of the fanclub, and got to go backstage and get autographs and pictures and stuff! And she also met Alexisonfire, and Dallas (Guitar/Vocals) Kissed her ssiter's boyfriend. She said it was really funny.
Any cool concert experiences that have happened to you?
Hoobastank/Incibus is the only one I've been to.
I currently have tickets/am planning to go to the Stones in their 'Bigger Bang Tour'.
I've been to a lot of concerts...
Alan Jackson and LeeAnn Rhymes when I was REALLY young...
Andy Williams' Christmas Show when I was really young too...
Nickel Creek, yeaaaaars ago
2 Britney Spears concerts (I don't know why I wasted my time and money. -_-)
Aaron Carter with A*Teens, haha...
American Idols Live concerts, season 2 and 3.
And the 2 best ones, haha:
Backstreet Boys and The Click Five this past August (met the Click Five afterwards...it was awesome. )
Green Day a few weeks ago.
That's just to name a few.
i have been to so many concerts....
some include....no doubt, marilyn manson....too many to think of but i would have to say the best shows are the local bands or acts...the best live show from a fairly big band ive seen was mindless self indulgence...they are AMAZING live....they do crazy things and keep you entertained the whole time as well as sounding good live...its a really high energy show. if you get the chance check it out for sure!
I recently saw Interpol in Illinois and it was excellent.
Def. suggest going seeing them if you like them and have the chance. Their opening band Boom Bip was also v. good if you like the kind of music it was (it was sort of dreary Jam-band which is kind of an oxymoron) but they lack singing, so it was purely instrumental.
Interpol was frickin' amazing though.

oops. i copied and pasted from another thread. that was the last time we saw them :p. Hows it going anyway bitch. not seen yo for a bit. all good back home?
Well I'm only going to post the latest gig I've been to.
I saw Reel Big Fish live in concert supported by Army Of Freshmen and Beat Union (the second most probably won't hav heard of but they were pretty damn good).
That gig was amazing and is one I'll never forget.
The latest concerts I went to are:
Thrice, Bloc Party and Blindside.
Concerts coming soon:
Funeral for a Friend, Circa Survive, MCR and MUSE!
Yep that's me for the year hehe.
This year I've been to Bloc Party and the Accelerator tour in Stockholm..
Biffy Clyro opened for Bloc Party and were decent, but Kele's performance was awesome.. didn't get the reviews they deserved though..
At Accelerator we saw most of the big acts and a bunch of, at least to me, lesser known ones including:
Peter, Bjorn and John,
TV on the Radio,
The Gossip and
Cansei de ser Sexy
Probably the hottest line-up I've seen at a two-day festival in Sweden. I went with my girlfriend and a friend and his gf and we had a blast, pretty much everyone but TV on the Radio lived up to expectations. Interpol played really late friday night but their show was fricking awesome and easily one of the best I've ever seen. Jamie T was really cool as well as my biggest surprise the Gossip!
A memorable consert was in 86. Status Quo in sthlm, the 3rd consert in their reunion tour. It was at an indoor sportsarena that today is closed.... Due to bad groudwork. I tell U the place was actually bumping around...
I've only been to Taking Back Sunday with Angels and Airwaves, Vans Warped Tour 2006, Bloc Party, and Billy Talent so far.
It looks as though everyones been to a bloc party concert this year haha!

I'm still young, and it's hard to see good bands when you live in Geneva, Switzerland.
Taking Back Sunday, UnderOath, Senses Fail, Anti-Flag, Saosin
Angels & Airwaves
I never went to a concert. I don't like the ideea to stay in a crowded place iven if it's good live music.
I prefer listening to music from home.
Deep Purple, Marilyn Manson and other minor spanish bands
im going to see damien rice tomorrow. for free w00p.
working on sound desks wins
my favorite had to be seeing prince with my twin sister, both of us all dressed up in purple
other than that, tons of house shows
defiance, ohio, japanther, mirah, blackfire, alliaceous, this bike is a pipe bomb, and a whole lot of crust-core bands whose names i can't remember
in high school rusted root played a free concert at some spring festival and the whole town went crazy and turned the field that they played on into a giant mud-hole, which was pretty funny/memorable.
hmm...when i was a little one, and still playing piano, the erocia trio blew me out of the water
and very soon...i'm going to get to see morrissey with the same twin sister! oooh, can't wait
50 Cent- Toronto
