The guy on the far left came prepared.
I am SOOOO glad I have a son and no daughters.

That is farking hilarious. My guess is the pain isn't from the music, but from the high-pitched keening coming from thousands of preteen female throats in unison.

Poor guy, his face is probably stuck like that now.

Someone buy that poor man a beer.

Laced with cyanide to put him out of his misery, that is.

I had to look to see if that wasn't a picture of me.
I go through Penn. station every day and he was playing MSG the other night. It was a teenybopper nightmare trying to get through these kids.

Poor bastard... probably didn't even see it comin, but when that act opened he was a dead man, such are fickle fortunes of Beiber concerts... whatever those are.

I don't get the appeal..his voice is so autotuned in his "music" I really don't know what he sounds like.

I took my daughter and her friend to see the Cheetah Girls back in 2006ish. Just me, the wife had to work. Wife and I took the daughter and a friend to see Jonas Brothers about 2 years ago. I feel for the guy in the picture.

This year, my daughter is going with me to see The Wall. I am so glad she grew up...

Add a layer of hairspray to that shiat and I think it qualifies under OSHA regulations as a hardhat.

2010-09-02 01:21:13 PM  
Sometime in the early 2000's while i was stationed in Germany I took my preteen daughter to a concert that had a bunch of boy bands. N'SYNC and the Backstreet Boys were in the line up. I haven't been the same since.

Ha ha ha ha!!

Didn't John Lennon say the reason why the Beatles stopped touring was because the girls screamed so loudly that they couldn't hear themselves singing/playing?

I've heard that, too. I've also seen footage of Paul McCartney trying to get the idiots to stop screaming during a concert because they couldn't hear themselves play.

Took my then-13-year-old son to see AC/DC last February and it was awesome.
But this guy... I can't help but feel so bad for him. Like slide him a Percocet or at least some earplugs. The screeching made by girls that age is pure hell.

The screeching is the worst part. When I attended one of those freak shows with my daughter. This one little girl just screamed "JUSTIN" (Justin Timberlake) through the whole show. I thought I was going to have stroke.

You guessed correctly. If you are roped into attending a tweeny-act concert you will require three items--booze, a nearby crash pad so you don't have to drive wasted and earplugs/muffs. In my family we have a long and proud history of pre-gaming such acts as Shaun Cassidy, Duran Duran, N'SYNC, Hannah Montana and the Jonas Brothers. The torch will pass to a new generation in November, when my 21-year-old niece will take her 9-year-old sister to see Justin Bieber in Philly. She's already booked the hotel room--there's a Holiday Inn in the complex--and looking on boards to see what time he gets on stage so she can time her drunkeness properly.

My brother works for the stagehand's union here in Portland, and he worked a Bieber concert recently. He said he couldn't tell if the kid actually had a good voice or not because the girls were screaming so loud nobody could hear the actual music.

Needs a "penis goes there?" caption, which actually works for almost every face in that pic, except for the guy with headphones on.

Has an artist ever actually stopped performing until the fans STFU so that they can get on with the damn show? I imagine it would probably be like when your English teacher just stood there silently at the beginning of a noisy period and just stared down the room until everyone, simultaneously, just shut up.

I had a similar experience several months ago when I got stuck taking my 11-year-old daughter to a Taylor Swift concert because my wife got sick.

10,000 screaming prepubescent girls make a lot of noise.

Reminds me of a photo I saw years ago of a man who took his pre-teen daughter to a Beatles concert. He also had that pained look on his face.

I know Ani Difranco used to do that during her shows. She freely admitted that the screaming teens who started attending her shows once she got popular really annoyed her. She said that she could hear them count down "1, 2, 3" and just knew a "WE LOVE YOU ANIIIIIIII!" was about to be unleashed.
