Have you ever been to a music concert? By: DJ Omnimaga Date: April 24, 2015, 11:31:43 PM
I thought I would start a music concert topic since Summer is approaching and there are lots of festivals. Have you ever been to a music concert before or do you plan to go to any in the near future? And I really mean actual commercial bands/artists (eg Nightwish, Metallica, Lady Gaga, etc) or popular tribute bands, not school band concerts.

In my case, I'm going to see Metallica on Sept 14th in Quebec City. I was lucky to get a ticket because it sold out in under 15 minutes. I bought my ticket 5 minutes after sale began and when I tried again after my purchase out of curiosity there was one more at an upper level, then everything was gone. The Sept 16th concert in the newer venue was sold out less than a minute after sale began. I can't wait :D

Also in the past four years I saw many other bands too. Among the big ones I saw Iron Maiden, Irish Moutarde (three times), Dropkick Murphys, Guns N Roses (the one with Axl), Bon Jovi, Rogers Waters, Over Kill, Sabaton (twice), Sonata Arctica, Stratovarius, Bad Religion, Amon Amarth, Eluveitie (twice), Dance Laury Dance (5 times), Vilain Pingouin (twice) and Alcoholica. I saw others too but those are the ones I remember the most. Given the many metal concerts I went to, I also had my share of mosh pits and I witnessed at least three walls of death so far. :P

I once went to an orchestra... That doesn't really count though.

I am going to New York for the summer so I may go see a band there.

I've been to multiple Roger Waters concerts since I was ~5, mostly when he performed The Wall. Other than that, I haven't really been to much other concerts, other than a Peter Gabriel one.

I went to a lot of concerts with DJ (so I won't state them all again, but it's most of them). Last weekend I also saw Mika Kobayashi (the one who sings on some anime openings such as Kill la Kill and Attack on Titan) and the Montreal Videogame Orchestra as part of Nadeshicon, an anime convention in Qu├ębec.

Ooh nice Strontium that you got to see The Wall too. In my case it was an outdoor concert and I think it lasted about 3 hours including the intermission. It was one of the best experience I witnessed.

I also forgot to mention I might go see Ensiferum with Korpiklaani in May, but I'm still not 100% sure yet. I also plan to go see Kamelot with Dragonforce on November 22nd.

I have never been to a concert. A lot of my friends have though, but i don't think i will go in the near future. This might change in a few years though :P
btw: i hear Rammstein concerts are awesome  O.O

Damn yes they are. Rammstein abuses SFX it's crazy.

Pyrotechnics too. I wish I could go to one. I heard there were some pyrotechnic incidents on the stage, though O.O

Yes Motley Crue comes to Quebec City on October 20th. I might scrap my plans for Dragonforce and go see Motley instead, especially that it's their last tour ever.

I've never bean to a concert by a big band, but I've bean to several performances of my guitar teacher, who has a band up in Duluth, Minnesota. (Technically Superior,  Wisconsin, but the two towns are very close and have always shared a culture so whatever :P ) and really I have no desire. IMHO "the music died" (yes that's a reference) in the 90s. To bad I was not alive back then :(
Re: Have you ever been to a music concert? By: Unicorn Date: August 12, 2015, 06:59:51 AM
Totally agreeing with that. All th gooduic was in the 60s-80s. When we werwn't alive :'(

Yeah, I learned about Jazz history in Jazz camp this summer, so now I listen to Miles Davis.

I only listened to random WW2 music before :P

Haha nice, those can be fun too, but in North America they just play crappy music x.x.


As for music I like recent stuff too but it depends which genre. I like metal regardless of the year but I dislike most electronic music made after 2002.
