I don't go to concerts, but I do work security at them for one of the companies her in SD. The past year I have worked U2, Los Lonely Boys, Robert Plant, The Warped Tour, Rascal Flats, Eminem, Stevie Nicks (back to back to back), Tobey Keith, Metallica, Motley Crue, Van Halen, about 5 different Mexican Frias that have 5-6 different bands each show, Dave Mathews and Kenny Loggins. I am getting older because there is no way I would pay what it costs to go see any of these people and then have to deal with the crowds and the traffic and those stupid security guards who won't let me bring in anything. You should see the looks I got telling the Stevie Nicks fans that studded dog collars were not allowed in. It may be my age, but it seems that the crowds today are much more angry or violent than when I used to go to shows back in the 70's & 80's. Maybe because today they are taking more uppers while we were just smoking stuff.
Small concert this summer, Shawn Mullins. Last Big concert I went to before that Cher's Farewell tour in 98 or 99, san Antonio Tx. Before that the warped tour in Austin Texas, summer of 98? Black eyed Peas were there and I had never heard of them. Blink 182 was there too. Lots of bands.
I have not been to a concert in years...have actually only been to three in my life...Genesis... Billy Squier with Def Leppard and...ashamed to admit it...The Monkees
I recently tried to get tickets to see The Offspring and System of a Down...but they were sold out before i could
Only been to one concert, that was Phil Collins. But I love going to Broadway Shows. A friend of mine is a marketing executive for a company that deals with Broadway, so I get free tickets almost every few weeks. In 05 I saw 10 shows and have seen 2 in 06 thus far.
I've only been to 2 concerts.The 1st was in 1983 .My mom took myself,my youngest brother & 2 cousins that were visiting from Indiana to see Rick Springfield & 2 yrs ago for my bday my sis took me to see KISS/Aerosmith in Houston.
Let me see,...I think it was Aerosmith...or it was Dio, Motor Head and Iron Maiden cant remember which one was first. Not a big Motor Head fan but ar least I can say I got to see them....gotta love Lemmy..lol
The last concert I saw was the Stones, when they rolled thru my town back in Sept. Great show! I've seen many a concert in my day, but don't do it as much anymore. Richie Havens (anyone remember Woodstock?) is coming around in March, so I may go check that out.
I mainly attended concerts in the 80's, a virtual plethora of concerts. The most recent concerts I attended were; Leonard Cohen, Beck, Depeche Mode, The Village People, and local bands in local pubs.
My most memorable concerts were; The Clash, The Cure, Culture Club, OMD and Depeche Mode in the 80's. I also saw: Lover Boy, Bryan Adams, The Psychedelic Furs, Queen, Saga, Rush, Cyndi Lauper, Howard Jones, The Police, Rick James, Peter Tosh, Flock of Seagulls, The Spoons, Tears for Fears, Rod Stewart, David Bowie, J. Geils Band, and if there is more I can't remember right now.
If I were to attend a concert again I would see; The White Stripes, Nick Cave or Leonard Cohen.
While I probably would have never gone except for happenstance, last year while traveling for work, I just happened to stay at a hotel casino that had booked a George Thurogood concert. I ended up attending with some strangers that I met in the hotel bar. There was only about 30 people there and for a tuesday night in frosty Green Bay --- it rocked!
And yes we did have bourbon, shots, and beer---but definitely more than one!
