basemetal: I've been to many many concerts since the mid to late 70's.  The only thing about concerts today that make me look funny are the people that try to record video the whole time. You won't remember any of the nuances of the show and will only have that shiatty little video to see it.  Take it in, remember it.

/also miss the heavily smoked filled arenas even though I don't smoke
//yeah, vomiting is not cool, maintain, dude

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?


Same height, but weigh about 210...some of it added muscle, some of it added fat...lol

Kinda guilty of this myself. Went to see Roger Waters play The Wall in Indy last summer & just HAD to record Comfortably Numb. If it makes you feel any better the video turned out ok but the guy next to me was doing his best Ben Stein impression while trying to sing along. lol

They probably really meant "Pina Coladasburg."

I read somewhere that some people like to sing loudly, way off key, during songs when people are recording video during concerts.  People don't notice it while it's going on and then hear it when the video is played back.  Sounded like a nice videobomb.

I've been to exactly one concert in my life and only because it was Rammstein.

Some complete farking idiot on the other side of my husband was doing the "sieg heil" salute the entire time, which proved he wasn't a real fan because anyone who knows anything about the band knows they hate that shiat. Anyway, a guy in front of us kept turning around to give the guy dirty looks. We were ignoring him because we know you don't pay attention to trolls. But this guy in front wouldn't just ignore it, and he eventually (during "Ich Will," which entirely pissed me off as it's one of my favorites) leaned backwards and tried to shove Mr. SS.

Mr. SS throws a punch at him and the fight was on. This was in the seating area (though no one was sitting, we were all standing), so they couldn't get at each other very well. Mr. SS got in a good shot to the face so the other guy and his girlfriend and her mother left and got security. Mr. SS got hauled out and we got to watch the rest of the show in peace, well as peaceful as MASSIVE MUSIC BEING PLAYED MASSIVELY LOUD can be.

I will say it was the only time I've gotten to hear Rammstein played as loud as it should be played and it was overwhelming, even with earplugs. It shook your whole body, internal organs were vibrating. AWESOME show. The heat, the flames, Till *sigh*

/will only go to another concert if it's also Rammstein
//spoiled for anything less

SubBass49: titwrench: SubBass49: Soulcatcher: My brother was at that concert. I don't care what Wiki says, it happened because they initially only opened ONE door to let the 4000+ people who were waiting outside in (people that got in line early). The crowd surged and people got trampled. My bro (who was 6' and 180 at the time) got lifted off his feet and carried across the floor. He saw people fall but couldn't even move to do anything.

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.

I quit going to Coachella partly because it turned into a corporate festival where the celebrities go to be cool and partially because I was just about crushed during Tool's performance. I am 6' 1" and at the time was about 190 and I was trying yo protect the girl I was with that was 5' 2" and 85 lbs. The crowd were absolute assholes I had waited years to see Tool reunite and I ended up leaving because my friend was so scared she was nearly crying and I could barely move and at times couldn't breathe.

I learned to stay back after a few Coachellas. Attended the first 10 of them, until I stopped going for the same exact reason you did.

For the first Coachella (99) I was on the rail for several of the sets, including A Perfect Circle & Tool. I'm a fairly big guy, so being on the rail actually felt much safer than being fully engulfed in the crowd. I could brace my arms on the rail and keep space between the bar & myself. If I had taken my girl at the time though, there's no way I would have been up front though. You can't really enjoy a show of that nature when you have to worry about someone else getting hurt...which is why i wasn't up front for Rage Against the Machine (seeing as my little brother's acid trip was peaking as the police helicopters started flying overhead and the banners were being set on fire). I pretty much had to babysit at that point.

/CSB.jpg


My first was 2000 my last was I think 2007 Tool played and Yeah Yeah Yeahs for some reason I think Depeche Mode played but it doesn't seem right. Madonna did a side stage acoustic thing that actually wasn't bad.

I was at the Marillion concerts in Chicago over the summer. During the song Neverland there is a small gap of silence between the piano intro and when the full band kicks in. Only a second or so. During that one second, some twat nearby shouts "best song ever!" so that everyone in the place heard it. Way to make it all about yourself. Then the band released the concert as a download, and sure enough it's in there. What a coont.
 
2013-01-20 02:50:41 PM
There is some middle ground, because I'm not the type of person either who wants and expects some existential spiritual experience out of a concert either, and for every douchebag pushing to the front of the crowd or dunk girl yelling and obstructing your view with her phone, there's "that guy/girl" who will ssssh you over...breathing too loud.

My login is an old Radiohead b-side, so obviously I'm a big fan of them, but when I see them live, I'm more there just to have a good time. I don't project any deification onto the band, so I'm not THAT interested in overhearing what Thom Yorke muttered to to Ed O'Brien in between songs, or what equipment Jonny Greenwood is fiddling with in between songs, so excuse the fark out of me for leaning into my friend's ear and whispering something or taking three seconds to stretch my arms over my head at "the wrong time".

To be honest, the only concert I've attended that literally put me in a trance because the combination of the music and ambience was just so gorgeous and surreal was Sigur Ros. But even then, after leaving, I was immediately back to my normal snarky self on the drive home. Concerts just aren't the things that have me pondering the great unanswered questions of our universe, so I enjoy taking in a little bit of people watching too.

overfienduglar: If someone is hold a cell phone in your line of sight, knock it out of there hand. Hopefully they are close enough that bending over to pick the phone isn't possible.


yup, other than talking through the show, this is the worst thing about going to concerts these days.

the right strategy for dealing with the phone assholes is to make them think twice about raising the phone and forcing you to watch the show through their viewfinders. you can disguise your intentions by holding up your own phone (turned off) and smacking theirs with yours. Then when they turn around, immediately turn around and look behind as well, as if to find the jerk who pushed both of you.

LonMead: sheep snorter: The Who concert disaster[1] 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 memories

Took a while for me to not get freaked out at close crowds

Still have the t-shirt from the concert... I've never put it on.


I went to a Molly Hatchet/Outlaws concert the following weekend in Portland ME. It was like everyone was walking on eggshells.

Someone tried to push their way to the front with me before at an Amos Lee concert. Literally. I had waited in line an hour or so, and when the doors opened I went straight to the front of the stage. I couldn't have cared less about getting a drink. I just wanted the best place to stand in the house. There weren't any seats. Not at this venue which was cool. There were a couple hot chicks up there with me that had been there just as long as I had.

A little bit into the concert there was a lady pushing another lady in a wheelchair. No idea where she came from, and no further idea why she just had to have the exact spot I was at. It was during a song, as well, which seemed rather rude to me. The lady pushing the other one kept telling us (myself, and the two girls I was standing with) that the wheelchair lady wanted up front.

We ignored her. She tried to make a fuss saying "They won't let her up front" to the people behind us, but we further ignored that.

I know how it may look, but here's the real kicker. There was a handicap zone right to the right of the stage. Less than twelve feet away from us. As a matter of fact it was probably better than where we were standing. They have those zones for a reason, and I wasn't about to give up a place I had been standing at for hours just because someone in a wheelchair thought it was owed to them to let them up front.

Sorry, the world doesn't work like that. It would've been different if there wasn't a plethora of other people she could've harassed, and if that handicapped zone didn't exist. She finally gave up. After she left the three of started talking, and we all had the same general consensus.

Sucks for her luck with the broken leg (she wasn't paralyzed or anything), but I'm not very easily manipulated or guilt tripped. Try that nonsense elsewhere.

The concert was great.

Totally agree on the "Guy who pushes his way to the front" point. I go to a lot of metal shows, and it always seems like there's some hulking douche who takes advantage of his freakish size by pushing his way through a crowd of people half his size. Invariably he ends up standing directly in front of a girl who is maybe 5' 1" and 90 pounds, thereby making it impossible for her to see the stage.

I would also add "the guy who puts his girlfriend on his shoulders, thereby blocking the view of the people behind him", although this one is forgivable if his girlfriend is hot and she takes her top off.

gadian: God, I hate that video shiat. The quality is going to be bad enough to make a hog puke, you can't hold it still, the sound is distorted, and you're not even watching what you're doing. Put the shiat down and enjoy it. You were never going to watch it again anyway and you know it.


Actually, I disagree.

I generally record the bulk of the shows I go to. The audio and video quality is remarkable. I don't watch the show through the screen- I watch the goddamned show. I generally get to a spot where I won't be in anyone's way- I leave people alone, they leave me alone. Of all the shows I've ever recorded, I have yet to have an artist tell me to stop. In fact, some of them even thrive on it- Richard Patrick of Filter and Brian Fair of Shadows Fall are the first two that come to mind. They actually encourage it.

Recording- it's the bootlegging of the digital age. And I do go back and watch the clips. So, while it's not your thing, it is someone else's thing.

You inspired me.

CSB, concert edition. A few weird things I've seen:

I see guys in wheelchairs all the time. First time was at a Soundgarden show in 1992, last time was at a Shadows Fall show about a month ago.

A guy in a full leg cast, with crutches, crowdsurfing during Shadows Fall.

Richard Patrick, of Filter, swiping someone's camera, and filming two entire songs from his point of view- himself, the rest of Filter, and the crowd. And then giving it back.

Lamb of God flipping the house circuit not once but three times in the span of 20 minutes. All of a sudden it's black in there, and all you can hear are the drums. Three times.

Some douche in the front of a Rollins Band show kept putting dollar bills in Henry's shorts, stripper style. Rollins kept pushing him away, finally, he switched the mic from one hand to the other, not skipping a beat, and clocked that motherfarker as hard as I've ever seen a guy get hit. He never missed a word while he did it.

A full blown toilet paper war at a Blink 182 show about 100 years ago. Apparently, the TP rolls in the porta potties were very easy to remove, and there were 100's of them flying through the air most of the show. Tom was really upset, he was concerned how people were going to wipe.

The first time I saw the Offspring, also about 100 years ago, they encouraged everyone to pick up all the garbage around them, and THROW IT TOWARDS THE STAGE. It looked like a couple garbage trucks fell from the sky. WTF?

Also 100 years ago, a guy's wallet was thrown on stage at a Green Day show. Billie Joe took all the money in the wallet ($60), rolled it up, and shoved it up his ass. He then took out the license and called the poor guy out, who promptly came up on stage AND REMOVED IT FROM BILLIE JOE'S ASS. WTF?

I don't recall the show, but at some show a few years ago, they thought it was a good idea to give out trial size shampoo bottles AS YOU ENTERED. Needless to say, every single bottle given out ended up on stage.

I saw MXPX, Incubus, Cypress Hill, and Static X at a ski resort once. In winter. Whoever thought that was a good idea obviously didn't expect the bands to have to dodge snowballs for five hours.

I could go on and on...

People who stand and stare passively at the bands. Especially a punk rock shows. You don't have to dance or mosh, but farking do something with your body. It's a rock concert not a farking opera.

I live in Columbus, OH, so am stuck seeing most shows with a room full of a-hole OSU students.

They really are the worst sort of people

FeedTheCollapse: Freschel: Electric_Banana: You know what I hate at concerts? People who wear the shirt of the band they are going to see! Don't be that guy!

I don't get the "don't wear the shirt of the band you're going to see". Can someone clue me in why?

it strikes me as redundant and Stuart from Beavis and Butthead like. Kind of like saying "Yeah, I like [band]!" when you are obviously at that band's concert.


Dude, no one goes to Winger concerts.

jsindal: McGrits:

I wish more bands would heed this. Every Tool show for the last billion years has been the same with maybe one or two songs different, and nothing from Opiate.

I hope you're kidding...I've seen them many times and I don't think I've ever seen the same set twice - including back to back nights in different cities.


At least the last 4 shows I have seen (last in 2010) had the same set list except for 2-3 songs. This was in both Houston and Dallas and includes that most horrible show when maynard couldnt sing at all. AGain nothing from Opiate for yearx.

/first show in '96

Being 6'5", I'm the target of every object thrown. I'm also not allowed to be close to the stage as I'm blocking the view of some douchebags.

Being in Vegas stinks. You get a huge group of people that probably got their tickets comped so they don't give a fark about their behavior. You also get about ten times the amount of drunk/drugged up people. I stopped going to concerts here years ago since they are wayyyyy overpriced and the crowds are terrible.

A little late for this thread but oh well...
In my 11 years of going to shows here in Toronto, I've seen all 10 of those items on the list, most frequently 1,2,3,6 and 9. #3 and #6 are the types that tick me off the most.

Smashed Hat: Personally I hate people who turn into attention whores at concerts. We didn't pay to see YOU.


We've got a local 'character' that has turned AWing into an art form:
.

They even did a documentary about him. He shoved his way in front of me once at a Holy F**k concert and turned his jacket on; the 'FLYERMAN' logo was right in my face. Thanks for the free light show, asshole.
