Concerts you've walked out of

Watching a video show last night reminded me of a gig I had quite successfully repressed the memory of ever seeing: Swervedriver. They were

Who have you walked out of?

I've never walked out, but I have fallen asleep during a few local bands' shows.

I don't know that I ever even knew their names.

I almost, ALMOST, walked out of The Mars Volta earlier this year. The sound was atrocious, they had no energy on stage, and they cut their set 30 minutes short of what was planned for no apparent reason and just walked off the stage. Thank God they did...

You should've asked them come back so you could walk out on them.

i saw this video on yahoo once about the used..how the lead singer pushes himself too mcuh sometimes which resulted in his puking in stage in the middle of the concert. and that happened more than once, becuase later, people started asking him "i'm so excited for tonight's show! are you going to puke again?" which made him realize that they all think it's a stunt or osmething cuz he does it a lot. isn't that sad? i only really like one The Used song, and that's "blue and yellow"

And ask for my money back at the same time.

i saw someone open for someone else once, i cannot remember the name of the band at all, but god both bands sucked. my friend and i just got up and walked out and waited for the opening act. then much to our dismay, the main act sucked as well. there was another concert i wanted to walk out of but i couldn't because i was stuck in a mosh pit.

both times i wanted to leave, but i was with a bunch of people and was like 15 so i obviously couldn't just hop in my car and go.

these acts were all so horrible i've blocked their names from my mind, all i can remember is that shitty opening act was a terrible spice girls knock-off.

a few weeks ago I went to see see Howard Jones, The Fixx and The Psychedelic Furs at the OC Fair. HoJo and The fixx were GREAT.

I made it through about 2 songs of the Furs and had to leave. They were HORRIBLE. I was embarrased for the singer, he sounded so bad ( richard butler?).

Luckily, the tickets were 20 dollars and at least we enjoyed the other two bands, and the fair itself (always entertaining with its surplus of LEMONNN shakeups, corndawgs, mullets, funnel cakes, scary carnival employees and jacuzzi's.)

Jason Donovan.

He was the opening act on a multi act show thingie. We didnt walk out or we would have missed the next acts. We just lay down on the grass at talked.

And it wasnt just my gang from Uni ignoring Jase. Most of the place was lieing down on the grass waiting for him to hurry up and be over.

That sounds like a fantastic lineup. Shame the Furs were crap. I wish Id seen them in their heyday.

Same here. Oh my goodness, not only were they boring, but their singer's voice was completely irritating. Definitely wanted to walk out on them.
