Talking Concerts

What are some of the better concerts you went to. I just got back (2 AM) from a Weezer concert in a city 2 hours away. They really know how to put on a concert and had some good opening acts in the unknown AM Radio and Pete Yorn. Another concert I went to was Warped Tour last year. That was awesome. Nickelback and Warped Tour this year possibly are awaiting me. What are some concert impression/memories from you guys?

Never been to any..... My friend went to the Winnipeg stop on the Nickelback tour, though and said it was very, very good so I'd reccomnd that if you get the chance.

Best concert i've ever been to....Frank Zappa, in a beatutiful, old, renovated movie theater in Royal Oak Mich. circa 1983. Frank on stage for almost 3 hours, and an audience that appreciated the man and his music. No drunken fights and no security wall in front of the stage. Frank Zappa was a musical genius, and the three nights he performed at this venue were magic.

I've only been to one concert and that was a Third Eye Blind concert a few years ago. It was a great concert. I was planning on going to a P.O.D. concert this winter, but when I got called in for jury duty, that prevented me from going!

Well I had tix to the Incubus concert which happened to be on a school night before an exam day (only one exam that day so I figured what the hell) but I also had my tennis banquet that night so my mom made me sell them
Warped Tour should be cool and so should Nickleback...I'll have to check if they come near here sometime

I saw LIVE a few months ago and that was excellent!! I was gonna see Nickleback and Default as well but the lead singer got sick and they had to cancel the date so I missed out on that. Was really looking forward to it.

LIVE puts on an awesome show though, deefinetly reccomend it

Sweet, thanks for the recommendations, I already have the Nickelback tickets, and I'm really looking forward to it, especially if Default opens up for them. I'm still trying to decide on Warped Tour, I'm afraid I'm going to run out of time this summer.

Depending on work, I'm going to try and get tickets for Incubus/Hoobastank in Indianapolis later this month. Should be an awesome concert if I get to go.

The best concert I've ever been to was U2 at Staples Center last year. Being 10 feet from Bono was awesome! I'm definitely excited about seeing Tool at the Forum in July, and am going to make it a double header and see them again in Vegas later that week. Ozzfest should be a pretty good show too. Lots to look forward to!

Speaking of Nickelback, they are coming to my hometown Memphis on June 6th with Jerry Cantrell of the great band Alice and Chains. By the way the best Nickelback song is "Leader of Men." Jerry Cantrell has a new song out as well have you guys heard it?

And I saw Incubus, Hoobastank, Bush, Stone Temple Pilots, and Puddle of Mud a few weeks ago in our Annual Memphis in May Music Fest. Bush and Incubus were the best.

I'm showing my age but...The Allman Brothers, Dicky Betts played an awsome guitar and Greg with every drink that he was consuming sounded better and better!

Locally, Ronnie James Dio and Deep Purple are coming to town and I expect that to be great!
