What’s the best concert you’ve ever been to? For me (until possibly tomorrow night) it was System Of A Down this summer. Got to the front row on the floor for the entire concert! Best thing ever
Anybody alse had any cool concerts?
(heheh, I’m posting this cause I’m all psyched up about concerts right now. Nine Inch Nails tomorrow night! YEAH!!! 8) :D)
Been to see King’s X three times. Twice at incredibly small venues. Standing right at the edge of the stage only a couple feet from them. It’s great to get to see them really working their craft as opposed to seeing them from hundreds of feet away where it really could be anyone on stage and you’d never know.
Paul McCartney had the most elaborate stage setup I’d been to, but it was basically like watching a concert on TV instead of being at a show. I could see little people on stage, but spent most of my time watching the big screens just to see what was going on. I much prefer the intimate bar scene that you get with a not-so-popular band.
In addition since KX isn’t mainstream popular, the crowd is just a better bunch because you’re all there because you really have something in common. There are fewer ‘just attending to be cool’ people there.
literally a concrete building in the CBD. no one knew who owned it, someone just bought along a generator and then it was suddenly a good enough venue to warrant getting an international act all the way to New Zealand to play there.
Got to hang out with rachael too, yessssss 8)
The circle pit was FERAL, it was packed as hell, brutal gang chants.
I don’t know about the best concert I’ve ever seen, but the last one I saw was Coldplay about a month ago. Great set, kick-ass light/video show. The only negative to it (if you could call it that) was looking around me and noticing I was probably the oldest guy in the auditorium…
:o wow… NIN was freaking awesome! I would have been better then System of a down, but my friend and I got stuck in crappy side seats which detracted from the awesomeness, cause we got tickets that day %| at least we got in though… if NIN ever comes to you area, don’t miss it! They’ve got the coolest show ever :o
