Any concert seen at Worlds of Fun(a local amusment park) probably counts as awful. Donny and Marie--wow!

Some concert as Silver Dollar City(an even cheesier theme park near Branson) was even worse. Some guy was playing the spoons...and it wasn't the guy who did the Soundgarden video!

And for the several people who have seen a Carman concert... I feel your pain! I have never been to one of his concerts, but his music is so awful that I have to turn the station when I hear it!

...Edge is not of our planet, Larry is a warrior, Adam has seen things that we may never dream of and whatever you do, don't get in a car with Bono.

--Danny Eccleston, from the Elevation tour book

I saw them twice when I lived in Florida. Oh, I have also seen Paula Abdul with Color Me Badd and I think that's it!

Don't hate me!!

New Kids On the Block when they tried to make a comeback in 1994, and thought they could fool the general public into thinking they were a different group if they only called themselves NKOTB. I think the tour and album was called "Face the Music" You can't buy the album anywhere, it was yanked off the shelves it was so bad, and they only did like three or four shows, but I saw one! HAHAHA!

*Runs Away*

It's fascinating to think that all around us there's an invisible world we can't even see. I'm speaking, of course, of the World of the Invisible Scary Skeletons.

Wow, there's a lot to compete with here, but here goes:

I went to see Keanu Reeves' band Dogstar. He obviously hadn't bathed in several days, and they weren't very good. I stood right at the rail in front of him; he stared at his bass or at the floor most of the time. But, I paid ten whole dollars to stand 10 feet from Keanu for two hours!!

Yes, If I know the truth about you...

Mister Mister (April 1986). They did that stupid "Broken Wings" song twice, to standing ovation.

Not to be too defensive, but i only did it because this girl i was in love with asked me on a date (though finding out her musical taste did make me question my lust for her).

Oh, and i went to an Oak Ridge Boys concert in 1981 (and THEY did their stupid "Elvira" song twice to standing ovation!)...i have no excuse, except to say i was young and brainless.

Oh, and so far, i think Screaming Flower wins hands down as the most embarrasing (not counting me, of course), with partygirl333 and Sicy not far behind...not that this is a competition!

George Michael 1992 Cover to Cover tour. (Damn! I missed the Faith Tour in '88. blah)

Christina...you absolutely love George Michael! Now, if I remember correctly, you and I were singing and dancing to GM's stuff on the bus to Galway that sunny Monday. Now, if you had seen Wham! I would have agreed but GM is your second fav ever!!

Also, you didnt get to see Back Street or N*SYNC at some point???

Lucky bastard! Paul Weller is amazing.

i was bored one saturday a couple of years ago, and all my co-workers had tickets to *gag* hootie and the blowfish and had an extra ticket so i went. they sucked so bad. i just as drunk as i could to make it bearable.

train opened up for them and were surprisingly decent...although i hate their new single.

And I feel like I'm slowly slowly slowly slipping under.

And I feel like I'm holding onto nothing.

Worst concert for me was New Kids on the Block- it was a free ticket for me, my Grandfather was coming back from America and was sitting next to someone from their management on the plane and the guy organised all these free tickets for myself and my cousins who live in Melbourne, so anyway I think I was in grade 8 or 9 and I went with two friends from school and it was a bad concert, I swear it is the only concert I have ever been to where I cant remember anything from, I dont have one single memory from the show- amazing hey
