Cewley: #11 - Chicks who constantly go "woo".
Farker Soze: 6. Pushing your way to the front.If a concert is general admission, the people in front earned their spots. They got there early and laid claim to their space. The people all the way in front might have even spent all day camped out by the doors, so when the lights go off and you shove your way to the front, you're being a huge asshole. Don't do that. If you show up late and there's only room in the back, you've just gotta deal with it.Your pansy ass wouldn't last 2 minutes at a metal concert. Sorry, no.
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
Farkenhostile: How about the idiot standing 2 feet away from you who has to sing every word (badly too)so loud you can't hear the show over him?
puckrock2000: 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:::You must have forgotten something, considering there was no "Woodstock 97" concert./Woodstock 94//Woodstock 99
FeedTheCollapse: Dee Snarl: 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.No, it's just cuz of some stupid line from some stupid movie.well, maybe the line itself, but it is rather goofy to show up at a band's concert wearing the same band's t-shirt.
barneyfifesbullet: The classic, dudes that put the girlfriends up on their shoulders. Usually right in front of me.The rule should be, that if a girl gets up there she has to show boobs. No exceptions, because it's usually decent looking chicks.
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!
PanicMan: The only place to be on a concert is front row in the pit. Everything else is boring.Man I need to find some good live music.
Solid State Vittles: The only thing worse than someone ironically screaming "Freebird!" is when the band actually decides to ironically play it.
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.
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.
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.
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
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.
h0t5auce: I can guarantee my wife will be phone videoing some songs. Fark you, we paid for our tickets and we'll enjoy the show.
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.
