    • Godsmack
      Godsmack @ ExtraMile Arena - Boise, US
      • I caught that hat, and the only autograph on it was Sully's, after he signed it for me! Taco Bell Arena needs to apologize to the bands and the fans for only having a quarter of the arena opened up while we all had a tight fit on the floor. Oh and the security douchebag felt me in the morning after he tried to stop myself and my friends in the moshpit. Oh well, dumbass shouldn't have gotten in the middle of the wolfpack.
      • Missed Pop Evil, who I REALLY wanted to see. Buckcherry was spot on. Godsmack killed it. 3rd time seeing Godsmack, first for Buckcherry. Both bands were amazing. Great show! Security was over the top. Friend of mine threw an autographed (Derek Lowe) Boston Red Sox hat for Sully and security threw him out for it. We're all Boston Irish guys, Sully is from Boston, we knew he'd like the gesture. 2004 World Series autographed hat and he's thrown out for it. UNCOOL!

    • Sister Sparrow and the Dirty Birds
      Sister Sparrow and the Dirty Birds @ Moe's Alley - Santa Cruz, US
      • I have been hearing about this band for a couple years and finally saw them last night and loved the whole group.The horn players are fantastic adding the Jazz and vintage Funk flavors from the '60's & '70's classic groups we all loved back then. The lead singer is a very accomplished soul and Blues Rock vocalist with a surprising amount of strength for her petite size. Everyone wanted more than the two sets of mostly originals with some classic Michael Jackson , Tom Petty / Band Of Gypsies and some Led Zep mixed together in a medley or two.

    • Carbon Leaf
      Carbon Leaf @ The State Room - Salt Lake City, US
      • My brother is a huge fan and it was his birthday, so this was my first Carbon Leaf concert. I knew very little of the music, but I was impressed by how friendly and endearing the band was to the crowd! I'd never seen a band come into the crowd like that before! Also entertaining to watch!
      • Fantastic concert. Great songs, great energy. Personal favorites were The War Was in Color and the acoustic version of Dirty Bird.
      One of the best! Good
    • Edguy
      Edguy @ Stora Salen - Lulea, Sweden
      • Amazing, amazing and amazing, almost all I have to say! I'm speechless, Freedom Call (the main reason why I went) was beyond great, even got the paper with the setlist! EdGuy were a blast and the whole evening was brilliant!
      • Great! Freedom Call was excellent at getting the crowd excited (just like opening bands should be) and they were surprisingly good too. Edguy had great sound, fun stage acts (R2D2 especially) and quite a lot of humor. It was indeed a happy metal party ;)
      • Big entertainer. Okey sound, Good stage setting. Vain glory opera, Save me and the finishing king of fools generated most noice. Enjoyed it in so many ways, not just because of the greate music though! ;)
      • One of the best shows I've been at!! Had a blast! !
      • It was a brilliant evening! Freedom call did everything to raise the temperature and at the end they succeeded. Fab singer! When Edguy got on stage the anticipation was high and he took a grip emediatly on the crowd. Big entertainer. Ok sound. Good stage setting. Vain glory opera, save me and the finishing king of fools generated most noice.

    • Ms. Lauryn Hill
      Ms. Lauryn Hill @ O2 Academy Birmingham - Birmingham, UK
      • Awesome show, found it pretty surreal seeing her and her band! They absolutely nailed it, such impressive improvisations/jams and I really liked the creativity that went into the different renditions of the tunes. People often don't appreciate how hard it is to do what they did! Lauryn didn't miss a note. What a human being :D True artist. Loved every second.
      • Second half more enjoyable than the first. Annoying how Lauryn plays the songs we love so differently that we are unable to dance or sing a long. The only time we could accurately sing a long and dance was juring tge Bob Marley portion of the show. It's great seeing Lauryn develop old material in new ways but it has really been at the expense of the fans. £40-£50 to see a show where you can never really get into the feel of the show is poor.
      • My group walked out after three songs. I've never walked out of a concert before. The songs were so bastardised that they were Unrecognisable. The sound quality was poor. I feel robbed.
      • Very disappointed! Left early!
      Should've stayed at home Should've stayed at home Nothing special One of the best!
    • Theory of a Deadman
      Theory of a Deadman @ Center Stage Theater - Atlanta, US
      • We loved this concert! We had a chance to meet the guys from T.O.A.D. and they were so laid back and nice. Great guys. The venue was small but really good. Anywhere you were you had a still had a damn good view. The only thing I didn't like was that the sound was off. The bass was just ridiculous. Someone should've fixed that. Overall we had a wonderful time and cant wait to see the boys again! Buy the meet n greets people! They are worth it
      • Phenomenal venue! Sound was great and not a bad seat in the house(first trip there). Very impressed that T.O.A.D. didn't promote the new album the whole show but gave us the perfect blend...from their very first song to a cover of STP's Interstate Love Song to Bad Girlfriend. Excellent show!

    • The Virginmarys
      The Virginmarys @ Kasbah - Coventry, UK
      • As a band, I love them, I think they're great. They're brilliant live too (hence my rating of the gig). My only criticism is, for a band who only have one album, they play for too long & try to cram as many songs into their set as possible and because of that, they're short on chit-chat. This isn't a bad thing per se, but maybe introduce a few more songs, especially if it's a new one.
      Good

      Phillip Phillips @ Stubb's Waller Creek Amphitheater - Austin, US
      • Great intimate venue. Great sound, great lighting! Stubbs employees were friendly and laid back. So awesome to see talent come to a small venue here in Austin.
      • Phillip Phillips and his band put on a fantastic show. He poured himself into every song and seemed to genuinely enjoy the crowd at Stubb's. He said it was one of his last outdoor concerts of the year and it was the end of summer for him. He gave us a great summer memory!

      anonymous about The Beach Boys in Denver, US on Sun, 18 Jul 1976

      This is one for the books. Two girlfriends and I were guests of Irving Azoff, and drove from Aspen to this show in Denver. We were backstage and On stage the entire time. Fleetwood and Santana were simply amazing and The Beach Boys were their usual 'calling it in' mode. Mike Love stuffed his pants with a couple of tube socks so the girls on the back row would think he really is that big. Mick Fleetwood and Lindsey Buckingham were incredible. Carlos Santana was magical.

      Saymon about Laibach in Ljubljana, Slovenia on Sat, 12 Sep 2020

      That was my 5th Laibach concert, exactly ten years and one day after the first one.
      This year, the band is celebrating its 40th anniversary, and one of those celebrations was a premiere performance at Ljubljana Castle. In fact, this was the second concert, as the first concert, one day earlier, was sold out.
      Due to measures related to COVID-19, organizers were forced to reduce the capacity of the Castle Yard to allowed 500 visitors.
      For me, the concert was fantastic. And that I would witness something truly memorable, I knew from the beginning when we were addressed by an invisible narrator in a typically sarcastic style and at the first bars of the first song, as the sound was superb. From that moment on, they didn't give up at all, by the end of the one hour and 50-minutes long concert they were amazing and I'm really happy to have attended the concert.
      If the situation around the world were normal, I would have to be at a Rage Against the Machine concert in Vienna on that day. And I'm not even sorry. That should tell everything.
      For the next 40 years, Laibach!

      Husband and I went and saw Mark Chestnutt at Billy Bobs.
      We were a little disappointed as he forgot song words, and slurred speech. He did say he was a little nervous because they had not played in front of a crowd since coved. He has been one of our favorite country music entertainers for a very long time.
      Something was very off that night and we are not sure why.

      anonymous about Faith No More in Arnhem, Netherlands on Fri, 20 Nov 1992

      I have really funny story about the time I saw them live...
      It was 1992, I was 18, and fan of Faith no More. Me and a girlfriend went to their concert in Arnhem, Netherlands. Before they came on, they had this band called 'Napalm Death'. I did not know them, but seeing as we wanted to see Faith no More up close, we were right at the front. And then Napalm Death started, and everyone turned wild. We were pushed into the barrier, arms hanging over, and could no longer move. Just imagine these two bewildered teenagers hanging there. And then I saw the members of Faith no More, standing to the side, pointing at us and screaming with laughter... I was mortified!
      (We got hauled out by a security guy, but not before my friend had already strained her ribcage. I was lucky, mine was just blue)
      So much for being really cool rock chicks! ????
      I remember Mike Patton being an arse and spitting one of the security guys on his head from up above on the stage.
      Still love their music, though!

      anonymous about Tracy Chapman in Harare, Zimbabwe on Fri, 07 Oct 1988

      It was an opportunity of a lifetime. Will never forget being there that day at the Human Rights Concert in Harare, 1988. The only sad part was 20,000 South African trekked to Zimbabwe from South Africa which was under apartheid and a few still found time to be racist causing fights at the show fueled by alcohol hidden under armpits. They were not used to being in close proximity to blacks on an equal footing. I was 5’2” aged thirteen and was being jostled in the crowd when Springsteen came on and one man South African adult white male sneered “stop touching me” with a disgusted look on his face. He said this while still shaking and being jostled by white people around him, but I was the only black near him and he decided to pick on me. Go figure.

      Went with my best friend from high school (still best friends all these years later). Sat up in the balcony stage left. There was a "light show" behind the band. They did Magician's Birthday. Amazing concert. Loved the band, and happy that I got to see them live.

      anonymous about Frank Zappa in Lund, Sweden on Mon, 02 Oct 1967

      The consert was not at Olympen, it was at Stora Salen AF. Olympen was not built 1967. I was at the consert. Zappa did not bring any PA system for the singing, they tried to use the PA system in Stora Salen but it was construckted for speach. So they soon gave up the singing. There was actually two conserts that evening, but it turned into one long jam session without singing, with a change of listeners in the midddle. I was able to attend both sessions. It was a smashing success!

      I was there. This was my third concert ever. I sat way back in the bleechers and it was rather chaotic. It was an all-day event with Santana and The Beach Boys in the line up. Tickets were cheap, like $ 5 or $ 6. Quite an event....

      The venue was fun!
      The Hard Rock Cafe in Las Vegas!! If you like to ROCK it’s one of our favorites!!!
      I was so nervous!!! Elk that is until The man himself gave me a compliment! I thought he’s not talking to me! It must be the person behind me...but when I turned around, the guy behind me just lifted his eyebrows and said, “I think he was directing that statement to you!” We laughed and when I turned around I saw Adam nod.. unbelievable!!! I saw stars for days!!!! And let me tell you My night took off after That!!!!
      Wow!!
      I loved how close you can get to the band!! It was amazingly FUN!!!

      anonymous about The Clash in Vancouver, Canada on Thu, 31 May 1984

      I honestly don’t remember much but I recall the crowd pushing forward against the security and one of the Clash saying “C’mon, they can’t hold you all back”. The crowd overran the security and as the 3 frontline Clash mates played on the edge of the stage, the rest of the stage filled with 50+ dancing fans. It was controlled chaos.

      The Mic show: doing the bump with Billy Preston and riding giant dick that popped out of the stage. Flower shaped stage - black n white tiled, It's only Rock n Roll tour.

      Physical Graffitti tour - like Song Remains the Same movie, Jimmy with bow, double neck, theramin on Whole Lotta Love.
      Mounted riot police as un-ticketed fans broke out the Cap Centre glass, bloody heads, lots of weed.
