Thornley...they had a minor hit last year with "So far, So good."

The volume was kicked up too high, and they were 10 years too late for that train heading to Seattle.

Walked out of a Hall & Oates concert, the blonde one looked like he was high or something and the sound was horrible

I don't think any of the concerts I've been to have been awful enough to warrant walking out of.

I'd never walk out of a concert. If a concert truly was horrible, I'd either be hoping that it would get better or be too mesmerized by the trainwreck of it all that I'd just have to keep watching.

anyone who was bored with kOl should see them at a show they headline...they are so much better in a club setting...their music at this point is just not made for arenas.

and why would anyone walk out on switchfoot?

I saw modest mouse open for Cake a few years ago... and God were they PAINFUL to see live. They sounded like they were dying a slow death on stage. There were like 6 opening bands (great performances by Flaming Lips, and Kinky(?))... Cake rocked.

Why R.E.M. and PJ? Aren't they brilliant all the time? Or at least worth the price of admission?

See, I love them both greatly

I walked out on a Beck show here in Athens. The show was in the convention center, downtown, which is a huge concrete cinderblock room. The sound was so horrible you couldn't tell what song he was playing and we couldn't see the stage at all. We stayed for the opening act (The Cardigans) and about 30 minutes of Beck and then we left and went to a bar.

That was the first show I was ever frisked at.

Bruce Cockburn was playing at a festival in town once and my Dad and I went to see him. We are both fans, but when we got there all he did was rant and every second word was fuck this and fuck that. Then he only played newer stuff. That was enough. I really do enjoy Bruce Cockburn and his music, but as this was an all ages show I thought that there is a time and a place to do your rants ie: in a concert hall, or on the internet or something. (The show itself was outside)

Never walked out on a show, but I've walked out on three Dashboard Confessional performances. I'll walk out, bellowing obscenities all the while, on two more in a few weeks. I also bailed on Cornershop's set once, a long time ago.

Never walked out of a concert but I only go to one or two a year so I can't really afford to miss out on the few I attend.

Had free tix to both so I didn't feel like I was obligated to stay because of $$.

And honestly, I had seen REM a few times earlier in their career in smaller venues and they were great, but this was a stadium show on the Monster tour and it just didn't cut it for me. The real reason I went, besides the free tix, was that Radiohead was opening.

Pearl Jam was good, though.
