My last concert was slayer. My next concert should be primus doing rush farewell to kings in its entirety.

The fostex cans are bouncing on blue collar tweakers by primus.

I am going to get lost in live shows once it is safe.

Really missing live shows. But I will live. My name is mud.

We were planning on taking a trip to a state we've never been to to see godsmack or 5fdp. Thx covid

#3 1 year ago

Can't wait for concerts too be back! Uhhh been too long.

#4 1 year ago

I missed the slayer farewell tour. We do an eclectic mix of things. We have tickets for Black Crowes and Alanis Morissette in August. Here's to hoping they happen.

#5 1 year ago

Hell yes! Looking forward to seeing Testament this year, and hopefully Nightwish

4 friends and I from high school bought tickets to Judas Priest’s show that was supposed to be last September. We are all 57 years old ad went to see them together in high school and thought it would be fun to go together when we were old.

Show got canceled no refund on our tickets as they are planning on doing a show in September this year. I hope we get to see them. Stupid COVID.

I hate concerts actually. So I am a-ok here!

You will - they are still going strong! Rob posts stuff online all the time and I just watched a couple of weird comedy videos with Richie; they’ll be back with Ian and Scott in due time!

I got extra time to buy a ram Stein ticket. I’ll should be there now with a years delay to help me buy.

Not me. I've been going to concerts for so many years, spent sooooo much $ on them...even before Covid I was winding down. Covid is only the final reason to drop out. Was a good run, but the $, travel, putting up with the worse scum on the earth...no thanks.

All things come to an end.

I'm with you. Went to a ton of shows as a kid. Just not that into it anymore. I hope it comes back soon though, I know how many people depend on live events to make a living

#14 1 year ago

Hoping to use my tickets for GNR this year.

#15 1 year ago

I'm not a big concert fan. Large crowds give me anxiety. But I really miss going to musicals. I absolutely loved going to Broadway shows. O hope the start up again next fall around here

Here in DC they are completely shut down. We used to go 4 or 5 times a year to the National opera at the Kennedy center. I think the last non-rock show I saw was Hamilton - also at the Kennedy Center. That venue is out of control beautiful. THAT was like going to a rock concert!

#17 1 year ago

Last few years we have mostly gone to small venues, casinos etc. Have seen Aaron Lewis 2 times this way, under 500 people. Im not much of a big crowd person anymore ,really like this. But, not gonna see big name shows at small venue

#18 1 year ago

Rock is dead

#19 1 year ago

Why? Lz and gnr say different

#20 1 year ago

Not at all.

#21 1 year ago

Had tickets to see Post Malone March 12 2020 but sold them as sh!t was getting really real by then.

Have tickets to see RATM on their reunion tour. Postponed until July 2021. We'll see if it actually happens.

#22 1 year ago

Haven’t been to a concert in over 10 years. Tears for Fears, at the beach Mandalay Bay. Next day was Rush at Caesar’s palace. Loved sitting on the beach.

#23 1 year ago

There have been lots of concerts in the south. Socially distancing inside and also many tours are having concerts at drive ins.

Never heard of any of them. But hope you get to see them soon, bud. Rock on.

#25 1 year ago

Me and friends had entrance/airplane/rental car payed for last year's Wacken Open Air in Germany. When covid canceled it we choose to move tickets to this year. As it is now with covid still going strong I'm pretty sure this year will be canceled too. Time will tell, perhaps the vaccination will make it possible. Really looking forward to it, whenever it will be possible go

#26 1 year ago

I cant express how much I miss live shows.
Over the last 10 years, so many great artists have passed away. Covid only underlines that if there is music you love, you need to support the artists , and see them live.

Slayer's last show at the Forum, and Fu Manchu at the Roxy, were the last shows I saw.

Cant wait for the rescheduled Judas Priest 50 anniversary tour, I'm planning to follow the tour up the west coast and see 4 or 5 shows .

Other bands/tours looking forward to seeing again, or for the first time.

CHEAP TRICK
FU MANCHU
GHOST
BÖC
CADAVAR
CHURCH OF THE COSMIC SKULL
ORANGE GOBLIN
COROSION OF CONFORMITY
THE BUDOS BAND
DEEP PURPLE
TESTAMENT
GRAVEYARD
URIAH HEEP
ADMIRAL SIR CLOUDSEY SHOVEL
MAJIC SWORD
JOAN JETT
NEBULA
BIG ELF
KILLING JOKE

And a dozen others, you never know when it's the LAST tour, so go see em when you can.

Yea, we still been kicking it down here. Brushy MT state prison has had several good shows and all the drive in theaters have been doing shows. Obviously the winter weather has slowed things down recently.

I prefer smaller venues these days even prior to 2020. More intimate, better sound quality, price much cheaper and beer much better.

#30 1 year ago

Not me. With a few exceptions, I've seen every act I wanted to and inhaled enough farts, BO, and cigarette smoke to last several lifetimes along the way. Youngsters today don't even know what they're missing.

i waited too long and missed Chris Cornell,would like to see Foo Fighters again and maybe some pumpkins but need a smaller venue with chairs (too old) and close enough to see the band

people at shows i have been to dont seem to care or respect each others space anymore.I dont bump into people and kinda think it should go both ways.im too old to put my beer down and box to discuss common courtesy.But I have seen the best nothing like it

#33 1 year ago

Ya. I missed Cornell too ,he played 30 miles from us in a small theater, maybe 400 people, but was askin a fortune for tickets. Wish now I would of paid up. "I am the highway" is one of his best vocals ever." Nothing compares to you "is tuff to beat tho,,,

#34 1 year ago

My first concert was in 1976, with my girlfriend, who's now my wife. I was 16, she was 15, and we came from rural Washington to Seattle to see Kiss. The opening act was a bunch of guys you couldn't understand what they were saying, everyone thought their music sucked. We all thought who the hell is ACDC? Still goin to shows together, 45 yrs later

Yeah we had front row tickets for two of those Priest shows and it sucks it didn't happen.

I'm sure they will be back. Those guys are metal warriors.

I go to shows all the time with my friends so yeah, missing it just like everything else. Just being patient. In the grand scheme of things a year or two isn't a very long time. Targeting Fall of 2021 for the comeback.

#36 1 year ago

4 shows with tickets in hand 2020, that was one of the suckiest things after TPF, etc.

Yeah Hellfest just canceled, all the rest will soon too. Was hoping our Graspop (belgium) tickets would fly but we'll just push it back to 2022.

Did Wacken a couple years ago it was fantastic!

i was lucky enough to see stevie ray vaughn 3x once with Jeff Beck once with BB king,Jeff Beck opened and was so hot SRV did the hendrix thing and lit the guitar on fire

#39 1 year ago

2020 was slated to be a pretty epic concert schedule for us. We planned to start off with backstage passes to Duran Duran as the Cosmopolitan in Las Vegas. Richard Marx in Tahoe (I know), Rick Springfield locally, Maroon 5 & Matchbox 20 in the Bay Area (M&G w/ Matchbox 20) and Def Leppard. Hoping we can return to normal for the 2022 season, but with many 80's performers getting up there in age, sitting on the sidelines for two years does not bode well for them.

Has anyone seen Aaron Lewis, from staind? Hes solo now, show is about half country, half rock. Very good live. 3 times in last 5 yrs

Ha! Acca Dacca's best songs came out in 1975/76 too.

That said, even Aussies still can't understand what they are saying...

After a full year's break, my first concert is the world's greatest ever live band, Midnight Oil, on 17 March. But it'll be fully seated I suspect, which will be very disconcerting for such a high energy show.

For someone who sees about 60 bands a year, the last 12 months have been very very strange

Still pretty bummed about this one. Would have been such a great day. Play pinball all day, walk across the street and watch Alice Cooper and after that go play more pinball.

Ya I know. What I meant was, no one had heard of them. 2 months later, EVERYONE had. Still one of the greatest

I have tickets for an August show.

Not a chance. 2022.

Problem is, yeah, Rage could do a show in FLorida tonight if they wanted. North Dakota? SUre. But tours don't work like that. Until Rage can play a sold out show in New York City there's no point in touring, they'd lose money slashing a world tour into tiny chunks. And those guys aren't gonna wanna play anyway until it's safe.

Big Tours aren't coming back till next year would be my guess. Holding out hope for the Fall but that's what I was thinking last year. UNtil then you'll have to settle for C/D level acts in states that don't give a fuck, would be my guess.

#45 1 year ago

Yes. Friends and I had awesome tickets for Motley Crue, Def Leppard, Poison and Joan Jett last July, which of course was cancelled. It's scheduled again for this July...fingers crossed, but not really hopeful. Of course I was right at the point in my life where I wanted to start doing more experience based things instead of buying physical stuff and...Covid shuts everything down.

#46 1 year ago

I think I've gotten over the long hike in. The long hike to seats. Stand for a couple hours. And reverse the process a couple hours later. Even for someone I'd like to see.

I've been going since the 1960's. Been spoiled. I've seen a lot of great things. Time for someone else to pick up the torch.

Slight digression.
I am writing some time travel fiction. In my story, you may travel time, but only to where you had previously been in the past.

You can visit all of the concerts you went to previously, again.

In my story, the concert industry is both new and old.

I went to the power slave tour for instance.

In my mind and in my head listening to these tours again is a bit like traveling time in reality.

Fostex cans.
-Digression over.

You must have watched the Amazon Prime movie Bliss as it explores similar ideas (albeit sans concerts).

Before COVID hit I went to Slayer's farewell tour and KISS's End of the Road tour. I had (have?) tickets for Primus's Rush tribute.

I normally see Clutch at least a time or two a year. So far they've done 3 live stream shows and I've gotta say, enjoying them from a comfy seat at home hasn't exactly been terrible.

#50 1 year ago

ticket prices wow,my first show was Pat Travers,Cheap Trick and Blue Oyster Cult and i was thinking what 14 bucks is a lot of dough.Led zeppelin was like 17 im thinking madness fast forward wait in line overnight Pink Floyd 75 bucks i was thinking where will it end,those were gold tickets 1st 25 rows btw.spent all night in line and the couple in front of us were taking up the opening sales to get Streisand tickets.great bands actually cheap tickets compared to now.Day on the green shows at oakland coliseum typically had 5 of the best bands available for under 20 bucks.no more nickel cokes
