wow, nice ö especially Iron Maiden, Bon Jovi and Roger Waters. those were probably nice to see :) i've seen iron maiden and mastodon too.

from 27th june till 1st july i went to Werchter, a festival in Belgium. i've seen lots of nice band there (if you can see those as concerts), some examples:
Within Temptation, Rise against, The Cure, Blink-182, Elbow, Mastodon, Jack White (this was unbelievably nice),  Pearl Jam, Miles Kane, Wolfmother, Mumford and sons, Editors, Chase and status, Simple minds, Dropkick murphys, NGHFB (from the guy from oasis), and to close the festival the Red Hot Chilli Peppers...

that extended weekend was really the most awesome concert experience i've ever..uh..experienced :) it was just too much of the good stuff, all those names (most of them at least) are incredibly good names in the music industry (you might not know all of them, but they are)..

i'm gonna look for some vids and post them here too, but i guess you can imagine what an influence it has on yourself when you go to concerts like that. it just blows you away, which is such a good feeling :)

on a total vote of 11 thats not really a representable number, as there are thousands of members here :)

but you should really do so, it is amazing how you can be surrounded by the music, and get picked up by it as you listen.. it's just amazin, and sometimes it can't be described with words, just like the concert of jack white..

I agree, going to concerts is a pretty awesome experience. Especially Roger Waters, his setup is just incredibly well made.

The only thing I must warn about is if you go to a death/thrash/heavy metal/punk concert, afterward your hearing will be lower for the next day of so, especially if you stand right in front (or below) a speaker. :P

Also at such concert, make sure to follow Ashbad's advice on the other page if you don't want to be pushed around. :P

i have these, so my ear protection is secured :) (that's about 25dB less)
and i only had a 'moshpit' once, at dropkick murphys, but it wasn't much of a moshpit, that's why i joined :) it had more of a happy group of people jumping around xp

Moshpits can be fun. When Aeternam started I kinda forgot there were moshpits so I kinda got surprised by it as it started, then I realized "oh wait! That'll be fun when Overkill will start playing". I didn't go inside it too much, though, because that can be kinda exhausting during such crazy show to start jumping and running around into people during almost an entire concert. Also lol in that place I think it was like 35-40C at one point near the end and my hairs were kinda wet when I got out. Nonetheless it was a fun concert. I can't imagine how it would be if they played on Abraham plains instead. Even if they're not very known here, I bet they would still draw at least 10000 people who are curious  (I think where we went only about 600 people can fit)é

One thing I wish I could have went to, however, is the Metallica concert last year which had about 110000 people. However to be in front of the stage you had to wait about 35 hours outside, sleeping in a tent, so instead I would probably have went behind.

Three weeks ago I went to a festival, and especially one night was extremely exhausting. At first Die Toten Hosen played (a punk rock band, they're very well known here) and I was right in front of the stage, it was very hot and you could hardly get fresh air. It was awesome, but afterwards I was wet all over with sweat. And after a break of only half an hour Deadmau5 played. The music made me unable to think anymore.

Apart from that festival I don't often go to concerts, lately only to one where Eluveitie played. But going to a concert is really something you shouldn't miss :)

Sounds like some of you guys have had some nice concert experiences recently. I haven't had a chance to attend any yet this summer.

Okay, I just counted them. I get to 11 (out of 16 planned). 9 being part of the 11-day long Québec City Summer Festival, 5 being part of Festivent (some hot air balloon festival in Lévis, not started yet) and the 2 others were Iron Maiden and Roger Waters (formerly of Pink Floyd).

Needless to say I like music.

Yeah I'M probably gonna go to a few of the Festivent ones. They start before the end of my vacations and there's free bus transit for those, so it shouldn't be as exhausting as the others.

That Stratovarius concert tonight was just unreal! O.O

Also the Sonata Arctica concert tuesday night was awesome as well, even the 1st part where Xandria played.

Also I just realized how bad phone recording can be during concerts. X.x (although image quality is excellent)
