Concerts!

post #1 of 23
Thread Starter 
Barb's post in the Daily Thread about going to see David Bowie got me thinking about concerts. OK, that and I just went to one on Thursday...

What was the last concert you saw?

What were one or some of the best bands/performers you've seen live?


++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

We went to see Brides of Destruction on Thursday, and it was a great show. It's one of those Super Bands of 80's rockers. It was formed by Nikki Sixx of Motley Crue and Tracii Guns of L.A. Guns (so they performed a couple L.A. Guns and Crue songs for the encore, which was SO cool!)

As for the best....that's a harder question. Nine Inch Nails is just amazing live. So is David Bowie. I have to include Aerosmith on my list too. Tori Amos was awesome too. Alice Cooper is definitely and entertainer, great shows by him. I've seen some really great shows!

Tori Amos is by far the best live performer I have seen! But I may be biased here because she is actually my favorite musician... period. I see her every chance I can get, and I love the fact that she doesnt do a set playlist that she plays in every town. Each show is personalized.

And on the other end of the artistic spectrum.... I have also been to both an Nsync concert, which my best friend dragged me to for moral support (she has an adult crush on Justin Timberlake). As well as taken my little sister to a Britney Spears concert, and I must admit that the teeny-bopper shows made for a fun time too! But the only reason I admit that here is because no one can see my face! Ha Ha!!! LOL!!!

The last concert I went to see was Celebrating Abba, and I was reallydisappointed.

My favourite show was Michael Ball. I just love that guy. (throbbing heart and all that)

The last concert I went to was waaaay back in either 1986 or 87. It was an Iron Maiden concert and I think that was the best concert I've been to.

How did I forget them? I agree, Maiden puts on a fantastic show! I've seen them twice and they were amazing both times.

Well I'm back and i have to say, Davie Bowie went Well beyond what I expected! It was a great show!
Unfortunately, when we got back to our friends house, their daughter had some friends over (boys and girls, she's 16) and they were all drinking. apparently they thought we were going to be out later then we were. can we say BUSTED!? so Brad and I made a hasty exit so they could deal with that little situation. Not good...
but all in all, we all had a great time! I would go again! he is a wonderful singer and has an amazing show! the band before him though wasn't to great though, but they were just starting over here, maybe someone in Wales has heard of them? the Sterophonics? they were ok, just not what I really listen to, reminded me of a garage band...IMO.

Well lets see...

Greenday/Bush back in 1994 my first "real" concert...
Lollapulza or however it was spelled around the same time (it was a lot of fun)
Backstreet Boys twice
Nsync three times I'm won't appologize for it, they were really fun concerts.
Insane Clown Posse (This I was ashamed to go to even when I went to it. But it was a lot of fun)
Korn and Limp Bizkit - this was insisted upon by a friend of my mine
Tool three times
A Perfect Circle twice
Kenny Rogers twice, not the best show ever but I loved him as a kid.
David Bowie (Very good show)
A bunch of Radio Station put on concerts with several acts.

I have tickets to go see The Darkness next month.

I'm sure I'm forgetting something

My best concert was a Bon Jovi summer concert that happened in Toronto. Actually, I'm just in love with Jon, since I think he has the most beautiful face and body. *sigh*

I had just come back from Europe and the concert took place in an open air forum. The weather was perfect and the whole night seemed almost magical. I'll never forget it!

He's my favorite male Country music artist too. He preformed at our local fair for 3 years in a row and I saw him each time - and they sold out. the only artist to do that. Unfortunately the new fair management hasn't tried to get him back and they are complaining about loss of revenue in the grandstands......

I also got to see him preform in his movie too and had tickets to be in it as it was being filmed.....

I have been to over 100 concerts in my life. Most recently I have seen Metallica with Godsmack.....Queensryche, and Aerosmith with Kiss......all were awesome
post #23 of 23
The last concert i went to was a couple of year ago to see "Simply Red".

The same year i has tickets to see Barry White(God rest his sole)with Earth Wind and Fire, but Barry White had to pull out because of a back injury, but it was still a good show.

But i think my favourite was back in 1997 when Luther Vandross was playing Brilliant!!!
