Posting again to the "what music are you listening to now" got me thinking about all the concerts I've been to.

Who all have *you* seen? Were they good...or not worth the cost of a ticket??


Over the past many years, I've seen:

John Cougar (Hey...I was a teen in the late 80's)
Def Leppard
Bad Company (twice)...NOT worth seeing live :)
Dam n Yankees
Kenny Chesney (SUCKED live)
Brad Paisley
Trace Adkins (Excellent show..saw him last winter, and am going again to see him this month)
Toby Keith (again..great show)
Terri Clark

The BEST show I've ever seen is Montgomery Gentry. :tazz: :) :where's a dancing smilie when I need one?: I've seen them four times, and can't wait to again. I wasn't even a fan of theirs til the first time I saw them live. They are just amazing....so full of energy, having SO much fun. They just completely rock.

Hmmmmm...almost afraid to post to this one. Might get called an "Old Timer"

Woodstock (the real one...wet, cold, slimy, awsome!)
Beatles (in LA...couldn't hear 'em, but I was there)
Steppenwolf (sucked live)
Three Dog Night (stole the show from Steppenwolf)
James Gang (Joe Walsh ruled)
Mountain (don't remember)
Elton John (at Red Rocks...awsome show)
Moody Blues (also at Red Rocks and also awsome)
Willie Nelson (just cause he's an outlaw)
Nitty Gritty Dirt Band (warm up for Willie...good if you like that kind of stuff)
Yes (Yes!!!!)
Pink Floydd (Incredible)
Cheap Trick (always a good time)
38 Special (sucked live)
Molly Hatchet (ok show...good music)
Eagles (must've been a bad day...they sucked)
Blues Traveller and Dave Edmonds (at Red Rocks...awsome)
Gov't Mule (stunk up the place)

Woodstock is and will remain my "memory of a lifetime"!

Anybody ever been to T in the park, im thinkin of finally getting a ticket this year(its the same old storey you never go to the things right on your doorstep). But THE WHO are playing at T in the park so im thinking of going so i wonder are the horror stories true or is it just a good laugh.

PS. I always heard that if you could remember Woodstock you werent really there, lol. Woulda loved to go to woodstock, but we brits havve as many concerts that big these days it seems to be the done thing now.

Guam is a tiny island so not many T_T.
My first concert was waaaaaaaaaay back in the day when VanillaIce was big. My dad was a diving instructor back then and in exchange for diving lessons he gave us free tickets to his concert in addition with an autograph and the mental state of knowing my dad took him diving O_O.

My second concert was a couple years ago. Shaggy came to Guam XD. He has a nice body O_O. I was soo close to the stage XD. My sister worked for a distributor company so that automatically landed me FREE tickets XD.

My thrid concert was a free concert for the Island of Guam. Eden's Crush. Was ok...but too crowded considering it was free >_>.

He have had a few more people come here...Boyz II Men (forgot who else) but I didn't get to attend those T__T.

-Willie Nelson (Could hardly hear him, it was raining outside as well, he was singing fast, probably to get out of there)

You got the important one! :tazz:

I'd STILL love to see Metallica, dangit. I go to the Country concerts b/c my mom buys the tickets. No way can I touch the price of Metallica tickets...and somehow...I don't see my mom buying them and going with me. :) :)
