But it all turned out okay!

Plus, it was damn hot in that place! We barely made it through Snow Patrol without dying of heat exhaustion much less another hour and a half in there!

Let it be known across the land that I would pay money for a Fall concert just to have the privelage of saying 'Yeah, I walked out of a Fall show...'

aaaaand... you've got mail



I also thought of another concert:

When I was 16, my mom, my younger brothers and I went to a Frampton, Styx, Sammy Hagar concert. We ended up having to leave halfway through Sammy because my bros were tired (and it was like midnight lol) and people were starting to get drunk and spill beer on us

I did get to see the Sammy "classics" like "I Can't Drive 55" and "Mas Tequila"

Nothing like a 16, 14, and 10 year old yelling "MAS TEQUILA" along with their mother

The opening act for U2 ... Kings Of Leon !!

Actually, went into the outer lobby of the UC with my friends and drank a beer instead ... although, we still heard their music, we didn't have to watch them perform.

We definitely returned for U2's performance, of course !!

I left a Kaiser Chiefs gig after three songs. Admittedly I'd only really gone to see the support band (The Cribs) and wasn't expecting to enjoy Kaiser Chiefs, but I didn't expect them to be so bad I'd actually walk out.

I wandered off after about 30 seconds of KoL. Singer sounded like a dying pig.

I walked out of WBCN's "Xmas Rave" show that was SUPPOSED to be Coheed&Cambria, Lostprophets and Hoobastank because:

1) Co&Ca had cancelled due to family illness
and the local "filler" band wasn't even listenable...

2) I was only there to see Co&CA and Lostprophets anyway..

3) Stayed for Lps's set and walked out in disgust afterwards -- the BAND was great, it was the fucking FAT COWS SITTING ON THEIR ARSES in the AUDIENCE that sucked. The Orpheum unfortunately has fixed seats in Orchestra, so there's no open space to dance or move around, but you can sure as hell bounce! and the people around me just... sat.... there. Fucking LOSTPROPHETS.. this band has been headlining these gigantic festivals (READING!!) in England but Boston can't be arsed to STAND UP while they're playing??? It wasn't even polite disinterest, it was goddamned RUDE.

*rant* *wheeze*

so yeah, I didn't give a shit about hoobastank OR their stupid fucking rude fans at that point and walked out.

Also wandered off during Chimaira's set at a multi-band show... god they were ass. Ill Nino opened, Machinehead, and Fear Factory headlining were all awesome.. these guys drove me right outta the hall. blech.

Wolfeden, NEVER come to a concert in Australia. I went to see the Finn Brothers in Brisbane last month and the entire crowd DID NOT MOVE. When the Finns busted into I Got You, there wasn't even any bouncing in the seats of excitement. It was like they were watching a fucking movie! I was lucky that I was in the third-last row and the back row was empty, so I just went up there and danced. My mother's been to concerts before here (this was my first concert in Australia) where she's been in the middle of the crowd, gotten up to dance, and been physically dragged back into her seat by the person behind her. Unbelieveable rudeness.

Motley Crue in '97. I walked out about 45 mins into the show. I would've left sooner, but I stood there for a while trying to remember why I was even there in the first place.

I've been to maybe 30 concerts in my time, and found that immobility is an exception. And it does depend on the band. The difficulty is in predicting what the majority of the crowd will do.

Maybe down your way, it's better? Members of my family have been to quite a number of concerts in Brisbane and the Gold Coast and now refuse to go because at every single show, it's been the same. I had to convince my mother to make an exception for the Finns.

I just couldn't believe it when no-one even MOVED (let alone stood) for something as rocking as I Got You. If I didn't love that song so much (I rather forgot about everyone after the opening notes and rocked out), I probably would've just stood there staring at the crowd in disbelief.

Hmm, I wonder. I admit I've never seen a concert outside of Sydney, but there has been a difference in some. I wonder what factors play into it, as I've never seen a pattern really, beyond knowing that standing room down the front is where there will almost always be movement. The stands are a different matter, for sure. I think even at Popmart, people stood, but didn't move much. The best atmospheres were at shows like ZooTV, Metallica, INXS, Crowdies (it was an outdoor venue though)... Weird, huh. No matter though, it's bloody annoying as you also feel you cannot stand up first incase no one else follows and you piss off an entire bay of people.

I think it's very much a crowd vibe thing...

I went to back-to-back nights at the Opera House as you know Ax, and Friday night was exactly as you said... dead to the world... Saturday night was magic.... which made no sense because Friday night was the one that sold out in an hour for all the die hards. Saturday Night sold out a bit more slowly... yet everyone stood for the entireity of the last 8 songs... which is reasonable. It just seems random based on the "vibe" that night. There is only so much the performers can do. Mind you I don't think sitting through a 60 minute "movie" in Mercury Rev didn't help energize the crowd in our scenario.

Newcaslte blew them both away again. I Newcastle crowds... (although the city is a bit of a ghost town )

Well, hey, Axver, if I'd been there, you can bet I would've been rocking out . I can't imagine sitting still during a good song. That concept seems...foreign to me .

Anywho, concerts I've walked out of-only one, Brian...Johnson, I believe, is his last name, the lead singer of Bad Company-he was part of a thing with two other artists that night, and he was the last one, and my family left halfway through just 'cause it was getting late and we were tired and stuff. The show was okay, but that was the big reason.
