I've been to Pine Knob in the '70s and early '80s where I've seen roasted marshmallows thrown. I guess every generation finds a new way to make it miserable to go hear live music.

Well, can you think of a better way to invite the Fire Marsall's opinion?  Boring old "crowd capacity"?

That's nothing, If it's at the pavilion they've been starting bonfires at concerts there for a long time.  They were throwing used baby diapers, blankets, flammable garbage, and something that was plastic in them at a KUPD concert I saw.  Disturbed stopped playing and commented on how wrong it was even though it looks real cool from the stage.  They didn't stop at one bonfire either, there were multiple going at the same time and they were starting them faster than they could put them out.  That was many years ago.

Yeah, Ozzfest 99 (I think?) Pantera did a surprise set in Dallas. One of the last ones they ever did cause they were well on the outs by then. You better believe shiat got lit on fire. Great times. I guess this counts as news now.

Crazy.  I was there Monday Oct 25 for a Dead And Company show.  Peace and love, Jerry Garcia's pals carrying the torch (pardon the pun), and 5 days later aggro shiatty 90s nu-metal jackwagons starting a farking fire.  nice.

(worth noting at the show I saw, D&C did "Fire On the Mountain".  Things that make you go 'hmmm?'......

I was trippin' balls at a Crash Warship concert at the Bottleneck in Lawrence, KS in the mid-90s and I know I didn't hallucinate that fire in the pit.

Ozzfest 2000 maybe. Caught the show at the New World in Tinley Park, IL. Nothing was set ablaze that day but the lawn crowd starting tearing up the sod and throwing it in the air. And I dont mean one here, one there, it was a cloud. Sully from Godsmack had to tell them to knock that shiat off or they were stopping the show.

Apartment 26 was one of the best surprises from the early 2000s trend of mixing rock with heavy electronic. Still listen to it to this day! 

They decided to ditch the electronics for the follow-up album and became just another mediocre radio rock band.... no scratch that, it was really really bad. One of the worst sophomore albums I've ever heard. Then they broke up lol.

It had the opposite reception at 03 ozzfest

Disturbed was so good the entire lawn at Blossom Music Festival was picked up and thrown into the pavillion. it was just a constant unending stream from all directions of sod raining down on us inside.

Draiman 's reaction? "this is farking awesome!!"

There used to be a outside amphitheater called pine knob outside of Detroit. I saw ozzfest there in 96 I think (black Sabbath reunion) anyway at one point they were setting the lawn on fire then ripping it up and throwing flaming chunks of sod.

I was there also! Great show and mellow crowd (of course). The only issue was the line to get in. We had folks in our section miss the whole first set. My daughter traded cold beers for advanced line placement or we would have missed part of the show too. We were there by 530 and the line wrapped around the parking lot. It was crazy. We missed Shakedown Street too. It's a beautiful venue otherwise. I love John Mayer. That version of Althea is stuck in my head. Hope you had a great show.

I was at Ozzfest 99, one of my first few concerts.  Everything was normal until Rob Zombie took the stage.  The moment he stared playing everyone in the lawn area started tearing up chunks of grass and throwing them.  I'd never seen anything like it.  After the first song was over Rob says "Point the cameras at the lawn.  Look at this...Now I did NOT tell anyone to do this.  Every time this happens they try and make me pay for a new farking lawn".  Afterwards during Black Sabbath's set there were several bonfires started out of empty beer cups and various other trash.

A couple of years later someone got the genius idea to put these massive tarps over the whole lawn so people couldn't tear it up.  Well people tore the tarps up, set some of it on fire, and proceeded to tear up and throw the lawn beneath it.

either 2000 or 2001, probably 2000, people ripped up the whole lawn for godsmack too in noblesville IN. i turned around in the pavillion and it was a sea of insanity.

later years, when i got turned on to harder music and was going for all the bands on the second stage, that was a wild mess too..and i loved it.  The show was almost always mid/end of july and it never seemed to rain.  what that meant was mass dust clouds rising out of the crowd during the best bands as everyone moshed.  You'd arrive back home with a shirt that was permanently stained with dirt and sweat.  some of the best second stage years:

1. mudvayne touring on their first album, which to this day is sick.
2. lamb of god..maybe it was the ashes of the wake tour?  I went and saw them again the very next day and was just as crazy.  Trash cans flying through the air in a small bar, people getting kicked out, fights. Glorious.
3. rob zombie (and I ain't even a fan. but he got the crowd completely amped at a point in the day where everyone was exhausted)

For general experience, one of the most f'd up shows I went to was the sounds of the underground tour, when they had the festival at the waverly hills sanitarium in louisville.  atrociously planned show with one ticket taker for a few thousand people, 90 degree weather and people passing out in line after a couple hours standing there with nothing to drink.  Again, lamb of god headlined.  gwar was before them.

It was the only show they ever had there, because the locals were so pissed.

you and me both. i was really new to harder music, and they turned me onto the weirder side of metal, something different than standard verse, chorus, breakdown.

I later saw them in peoria illinois, after the second album.  good show, but what I and my friends still talk about is the fact that there was a turd in a cup in the bathroom.  like someone shiat in a beer cup.  each person was like "naw." then one by one we go there, and its right sitting on the shelf of the urinal.

I am not sure why this article is news. There have been fires at outdoor shows forever. That Ministry set was great. I actually had good seats to that and remember the huge fire tornado out in the field during it. Didn't know pizza crusts were involved!

we had a BLAST!  oh man grab a sandwich this will be awhile.

my wife had to tap out so gave the ticket to a pal. Parents and I got there early, my pal drove separately. I figured the line was for the lawn seats only  - "we have reserved tickets, we have our own entrance!"  at about 6PM I realize, "oh shiat.....this is the line.  we rush over and see.........the line is snaking on itself.  we get in and my pal is en route.  "Yeah I'm stuck in traffic."

she parks, as my parents are 12 feet from the entrance.  we all have our VAXX info.  My pal isn't there.  I rush back, cut the line and find her, I drag her to the front -  "my parents are there, sorry!".  My parents are letting people go through as pal and I rush through, we find them, it is 721PM  - 730 show - and....we hear "Cold Rain And Snow" starts.  Folks start pushing.  it got weird.

then my mom's phone lost battery.  Oh, nothing. Just her Vax Card and license. It came on and we hustle through during "Loser" and find our seats.  Chaotic.

during setbreak pal and i ducked out to get a beer.  people were still being scanned in.  Ugh.


Maybe I have the show via the band's download, maybe I don't. hit me up offpage!

Oh, I gotcha. I was at the Phoenix show and the fire was extinguished multiple times and relit multiple times. Eventually, security gave up. The pizza crusts flying is hilarious

I was probably at that Godsmack show.  I saw them like 5 or 6 times, not so much because I was a huge fan but because they toured a lot and they often came through our area, and they put on a pretty good show.  I know I saw them at least once at Deer Creek when they toured with the Deftones, so that sounds like the show you're talking about.

I saw Mudvayne a couple of times.  The first was part of a mini-tour they did with Ozzy and Rob Zombie and they put on a hell of a show.  Their lead singer hurt his ankle in the middle of a song by jumping off a speaker stack but didn't miss a beat, just limped around the stage for the rest of the set.  The second time I saw them they weren't as good.  Not bad or anything, but didn't have near the energy they did at the first show.  I can't remember who exactly they were playing with, I'm thinking it was either Sevendust or Static-X.

And yeah, Rob Zombie put on a hell of a show every time I saw him play.  He brings a crazy amount of energy out of the crowd.

It was definitely an ozzfest year, & pantera was on the main stage as well as godsmack.  Just looked it up, wow. 2000.ozzfest. What a time!

Pantera was awful. I still lament that I never got to see them in the cowboys from hell heyday before drugs and stupidity ruined the band... but i was like 12 years old and lived out in the sticks.

rickythepenguin: Crazy.  I was there Monday Oct 25 for a Dead And Company show.  Peace and love, Jerry Garcia's pals carrying the torch (pardon the pun), and 5 days later aggro shiatty 90s nu-metal jackwagons starting a farking fire.  nice.

(worth noting at the show I saw, D&C did "Fire On the Mountain".  Things that make you go 'hmmm?'......


You sound old

phedex: Neondistraction: phedex: either 2000 or 2001, probably 2000, people ripped up the whole lawn for godsmack too in noblesville IN. i turned around in the pavillion and it was a sea of insanity.

later years, when i got turned on to harder music and was going for all the bands on the second stage, that was a wild mess too..and i loved it. The show was almost always mid/end of july and it never seemed to rain. what that meant was mass dust clouds rising out of the crowd during the best bands as everyone moshed. You'd arrive back home with a shirt that was permanently stained with dirt and sweat. some of the best second stage years:

1. mudvayne touring on their first album, which to this day is sick.
2. lamb of god..maybe it was the ashes of the wake tour? I went and saw them again the very next day and was just as crazy. Trash cans flying through the air in a small bar, people getting kicked out, fights. Glorious.
3. rob zombie (and I ain't even a fan. but he got the crowd completely amped at a point in the day where everyone was exhausted)

I was probably at that Godsmack show.  I saw them like 5 or 6 times, not so much because I was a huge fan but because they toured a lot and they often came through our area, and they put on a pretty good show.  I know I saw them at least once at Deer Creek when they toured with the Deftones, so that sounds like the show you're talking about.

I saw Mudvayne a couple of times.  The first was part of a mini-tour they did with Ozzy and Rob Zombie and they put on a hell of a show.  Their lead singer hurt his ankle in the middle of a song by jumping off a speaker stack but didn't miss a beat, just limped around the stage for the rest of the set.  The second time I saw them they weren't as good.  Not bad or anything, but didn't have near the energy they did at the first show.  I can't remember who exactly they were playing with, I'm thinking it was either Sevendust or Static-X.

And yeah, Rob Zombie put on a hell of a show every time I saw him play.  He ...

It was definitely an ozzfest year, & pantera was on the main stage as well as godsmack.  Just looked it up, wow. 2000.ozzfest. What a time!

Pantera was awful. I still lament that I never got to see them in the cowboys from hell heyday before drugs and stupidity ruined the band... but i was like 12 years old and lived out in the sticks.


Ok yeah the year Pantera played Ozzfest was the year they tried putting the tarps over the lawn.  I remember one of my friends getting kicked out for setting a piece of tarp on fire right before they played.  They weren't very good at that show.  I saw them a couple of years later at Pepsi Coliseum and they were better.  Phil still sang like shiat but overall it was better.  Probably the loudest show I've ever been to.
