    Default Live Concert thread

    Just got back from the Lana Del Rey concert this evening at the Molson Ampitheatre. My woman loves her and it was full of early 20's hotties, so needless to say, I had some good fun. I'm not a huge fan of her music, but it was a pretty cool experience when she came out.

    I haven't been to too many live concerts in my life, but others include:
    Allman Brothers-2003-Molson Ampitheatre: Amazing first show. Smoked it all uh-up with the hippies.
    SARS-stock-2003-Downsview: AC/DC ripped it to shreds, didn't even stay for the Stones. This was where there was 1M patrons and JT had water bottles chucked at him
    Non-Phixion-2004ish-who knows where: I got booted very early on lol no recollection, no worries
    House of Pain-2010?-Sound Academy: They played with a live band, could've been much better with just DJ Lethal on the wheels of steel
    Juicy J-2013-Sound Academy: Wow, legend!
    Lana Del Rey-2015: Happy my woman had fun... I didn't slit my wrists
    Imagine Dragons w/Metric-July 4, 2015: Very excited about this one. More excited to see Metric to tell you the truth!

    I'm sure I could go into more detail of the shits going down, and i may be missing a couple, but I'd like to hear some of your events and goings-on before I go into too much more.

    What venues/concerts have you been to?

    I forgot Rihanna 2013-ACC: not ashamed or afraid to admit I love that bitch... unless I'm talking to my woman, then just her name alone is a no-no! Hahaha

    FTR - I grew up listening to mainly West Coast and Down South rap music. Trying to broaden my horizon as I get older... I mainly listen to Fan590 in the car these days. It's just not the same being a mid-30's white boy listening to that junk bangin' in the ride these days lol

    I've been to Tomorrowland 2014 in freaking Belgium, had a blast. Does it count as live concert?

    I haven't been too many since nobody comes to the Maritimes but

    Iron Maiden at the Bell Center, Dream Theatre opened so probably my favourite concert.

    AC/DC in Moncton, Way better than I expected them to be

    Metallica in Halifax, Hell of a show.

    Also seen a lot of big name country artists just because they actually come to PEI, Brad Paisley, Kenny Chesney, Dwight Yoakem (lol), Dirks Bentley , Alabama, Rascal Flatts.

    haaha nice... yea that counts. My woman dreams about going to that one, but since I no longer do the little happy pills, there's no way I'm travelling that far to listen to that stuff. In my hay-day I would've been all over that one, looks like a great time.

    I had a chance to see Flo Rida one time and that would have been my first Rap concert but bailed on the idea when I found out it was taking place in a local sketchy bar where people had been stabbed and shot before outside. This was like five or six years ago before he really took off...

    I actually don't mind Lana Del Rey. Specific time and place for those type of relaxing tunes, but shes super talented.

    My top 5 shows I've been to would be...
    1. Foo Fighters (at Virgin Fest on Toronto Island)
    2. Oasis (the one where Noel Gallagher got knocked over by a fan and broke a rib)
    3. Blink-182 (Travis did a drum solo upside down ... was crazy..)
    4. System of a Down (Saw them in New York)
    5. Tom Green (the man knows how to entertain)

    Would have loved to see Oasis... Especially seeing as they'll never get back together again with Noel.

    Pearl Jam, Red Hot Chili Peppers, John Forgerty and The Tragically Hip? You won't die with any regrets, I'm sure. Haha But Oasis was unreal.

    If I can I'd like to see Noel's solo band. I think I'll pass on ever seeing Beady Eye (Oasis minus Noel and playing a bunch of crap songs).

    An Oasis concert would be pretty amazing, but we've missed out Apollo lol... My cousin is a huge fan, he went to Noel's show in T.O. last month. Loved it.

    I just reread this in the dirtiest British accent... Haha Hmm I don't think its crazy expensive, but then again I haven't looked. I think I remember hearing the Early Bird tickets were $99?

    Cheap. I bought early bird Bestival tickets in UK for nearly 200gbp ( that's like $400 Canadian. ) I can't believe Bestival is putting 1st foreign show in our beautiful Canada! Do we even have a place for this kind of event? If my memory serves me right, daily capacity in UK was just under 100k people. Ugh.. I'm so pissed I'm coming back just at the end of July. Love this kind of festivals.

    Looks to be about $190 for two days, $100 for one day. Don't know anyone on the list aside from Florence and the Machine and Nas lol... I'm sure it would be pretty amazing though, one the island overlooking the city! Never heard of Bestival before... wish I'd heard about it earlier, looks like a good binge. What's the deal, everyone goes in costumes? Is it just a big mish-mash of music genres?

    Ye, I never heard about it too when I lived in Canada. Bestival is/was uk-only thing and yes it is big mish-mash of music genres. ( large scale festival FTW! ) I'm wondering, can this festival succeed in Canada though?! I loved that many UK lads made a career cuz of bestival. They love to give a chance to home-grown talent. Oh and costumes.. Ha. Festival on Saturdays is full of fancy dress punters, other days - just so so.

    Bit off topic kinda.. but in 2014 bestival they fucking created the worlds largest disco ball. Like for real. This thing was huge.

    Yea, I'm all for the huge outdoor events where they serve alcohol lol... only a weeks notice for this so I won't bother with it this year, but I'll check out reviews and who knows, if it's back next year then I might wanna check it out.

    I don't see why it wouldn't succeed here in Toronto. People turn out in droves here for this kinda thing(re the 1M people at Sars-stock back in '03) and are likely sick of having to head to the states or overseas for these kinds of festivals. Not to mention the tourists that will come just for this.
