  • @Hayden said: I'm actually interested in knowing what you think of Nickelback. I always suspected you'd be the type of guy who would hate everything about the band...

    You suspect right, they suck-diddily-uck! But let me tell you this, they are one of the tightest bands i've ever seen live, was very impressed. They're just a wee bit too indulgent in their own shit, also "Rock Star".

    @Hayden said: [Iron Maiden] Year?

    2005, I think. They were promoting the Early Days stuff at the time. Great show, had a few opportunities to see them since but haven't bothered because they haven't put out a record I really really like since Dance of Death.

  • I'd love to contribute to this, but NO ONE ever comes anywhere near Maine. They get to Boston, MA...then end the tour.

    I'm finally going to my first concert this August(Barenaked Ladies/Blues Traveler, Last Summer On Earth Tour), but I'm sure the only reason THAT'S coming here is because the band is Canadian.

  • I'm just gonna go with some recent ones:

    Israel Vibration (last night!)
    DJ Qbert
    Amon Tobin ISAM live
    Tune-Yards
    Lee Fields and the Expressions
    Nick Waterhouse
    The Allah Las
    Chicha Libre

    Let's be honest here, Barenaked Ladies haven't been a Canadian band since the 90's. We're keeping Rush, but we'll trade you Nickelback for Pearl Jam(they're close enough to being Canadian).

  • @Hayden said: Not really, but I'm sure some of us would be interested to hear what you have to say anyway. Any video/DVD in particular?

    Well I've seen the first two Bottom shows so far. But my sister's seen Lee Evans live at some point, and my parents saw Michael McIntyre. Can't remember which shows though...

  • KISS in '75 and '76
    Back when I didn't know any better and thought they were good.

  • Paul Stanley's a good singer....and... well at least he is good at something.

  • Murder_on_the_Nile.jpg

    I'm going to see it on my birthday.

  • Well. It seems I've got a couple that no one else has been to.

    I got to see the Charlie Daniels Band live FOR FREE! A friend of mine was working the concert, so he got free tickets. Nothing like hearing "Devil Went Down to Georgia" live. There were some especially awesome solo moments too, such as the drummer.

    I also got to see Star Wars in Concert when it hit Oklahoma City, and that was an awesome experience. Anthony Daniels was a very funny narrator before each musical selection, and the music was superb. And the audience was supremely respectful.

  • I saw ZZ Top in Santa Rosa a little while back. Billy’s getting old.
