Marshmallow Jones: As mentioned upthread, the farking first verse sing-along followed by 'WOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!' makes me want to pull a Carrie on the concert hall.I am not much of a fan of the band Live, but I recall that their unplugged concert/video thing they did in the mid-90's, was rendered unlistenable by the tools in the audience going WOOOOOO the whole effing time.I was at a small-ish show a few years ago at a PAC (few hundred people) to see a local guy who was backed by some really talented musicians. Everything was plugged in for most of the show, but at the end the singer stepped to the mic and said 'We want to try something with you, we're all going to turn off, come to the front of the stage and just play acoustic.' Everyone applauded, then they unplugged and the singer started thanking the audience, who nearly all went silent to hear him. Then some ahole near me starts yelling over him 'WE WANT TO THANK YOU TOO DAVE, YOU ARE THE BEST' blah blah blah. All at once everyone around him went ''Hey stupid, shut up for second!!'. The guy looked like 'what? everyone wants to hear what I have to say don't they?' just another ahole who thought the world revolved around him.
gunther_bumpass: AcesFull: It seems odd that any local band playing a 75-100 seat bar,has a P.A.system with more power than the Beatles used at Shea stadium....Why? The Beatles sucked.
Mooches: Lith: Puke ain't nothing. Try Woodstock 2000 (what a clusterfark of organization that was,) naked chicks walking around covered in what they think is mud but is actually overturned porta-potty ooze, that'll make you think.And more annoying than any picture taking, wooing, non-booby flashing girl is $7 for a small bottle of water, $10 if you want it cold, and $!5 mystery meat taco/gyro/kebab pita thing, I'm starting to wonder if it wasn't iguana or maybe a really meaty rat.I was at Woodstock 97. The ooze. I'll never forget it.:::managed to stay somewhat ooze free:::
Already Disturbed: CSB, concert edition. A few weird things I've seen:A guy crowdsurfing in his wheelchair during the Big 4. Literally heavy metal.Two women getting into a fistfight at a Morrissey show.A girl sitting down and crying during Black Mountain.An extremely drunk guy windmill air guitaring and twisting around until Bob Mould called him out from the stage and told him it was time to leave.And most recently, at the Rolling Stones last month, a guy a few seats down from me basically watched the entire show through his iPad screen./taking pictures is fine, just stop using a flash and don't put the camera above your head
LonMead: sheep snorter: The Who concert disaster took place at the Riverfront Coliseum in Cincinnati, Ohio on 3 December 1979, as part of the band's U.S. tour, the first in three years and their first performance in Cincinnati since 1975.I was at that concert... thanks for the memoriesTook a while for me to not get freaked out at close crowdsStill have the t-shirt from the concert... I've never put it on.
Evenbiggerknickers: SubBass49:Happened to me at Coachella one year, when Bjork (of all people) performed. I was about 6'1" 190 lbs at the time...lifted right off my feet and carried forward at about a 70 degree angle...was farking terrifying.how tall are you now?
T.M.S.: We're the fark are they seeing concerts? I never found too much of any of that.
W.C.fields forever: I was at a Fleetwood mac concert in Vegas.One of the dudes we were there withwas singing along with Stevie Nicks,We ditched him immediately...I got all vomity at a Rush concert back in the 80's....I hate Geddy Lees' voice.Neal Peart was the best drummer I ever saw with one eye open.//And so it begins with the Rush fans.
maxx2112: FTFA: 10. Yelling "Sit down!" at people who are standing up.Sit the fark down . . . you gain nothing by standing up for entire farking show./ of course I'm old . . . I'm a goddamn Rush fan
kth: 7. Getting so drunk you puke.8. Loudly complaining after the show because the band didn't play your favorite song.So my sister and I went to see the Old 97's show a few years back. She knows them from early days in Dallas, and I've met them several times. So my beloved sister gets hammered. And starts loudly requesting one of their early, delightfully weird songs during the show. And then during the encore. Then after the show when we're talking to Ken./mortified
AlanSmithee: I don't get that 'Freebird' reference.
red5ish: Saw King Crimson at the Greek. This huge shirtless black guy with a super loud beaded gourd percussion instrument wandered around not keeping time to the music. Nobody was going to approach this guy and ask him to stop and he never did.
Cyno01: feanorn: Shouting "Freebird!" isn't always bad. A buddy of mine got a big smile out of Suzanne Vega with it. That was a great show...Its pissing me off that i cant remember who it was, but i was at a show once and someone yelled "freebird" and the singer was like "What, you think we dont know how to play it?" and then they played the whole damn song... the long version.Careful what you wish for.
