    For concerts you're going to, concerts you've been to, concerts you want to go to, and general concert related crap.

    Going to a concert tonight... don't remember what bands, it's a friend who's taking me, but I do know that the pit is gonna be awesome. I love going to concerts even if I don't really know the bands, because I get exposed to new music in the best way possible and I get to be in a pit.

    Currently going to see Gigantour (Megadeth/Bodom/In Flames/ Job For A Cowboy/High On Fire)

    and maybe Dimmu Borgir with Behemoth
    also going to see Maiden on the Golden Years tour...it's GA, so we're gonna rush to the barrier and stay there. Gonna kick fuckin' ass.

    I've been to:
    Amon Amarth/Sonic Syndicate/Thy Will Be Done - Amazing/Appalling/Kickass
    Megadeth/In This Moment/The Confession - Great/Total Crap/Solid
    Killswitch Engage/Dragonforce/Chimaira/He Is Legend - Shit/Awesome/Great/Good
    Dragonforce/All That Remains/HORSE the Band - AWesome/Crap/Total Crap
    Iron Maiden/Bullet For My Valentine - Really Good/Total Crap

    I also like to go to random concerts, but since the only venue metal bands ever play at is an hour long bus ride away, I only go to ones I really want to go to.
    I'm pissed off because Paganfest (Eluveitie, Tyr, Turisas, Einsiferum) is coming through, but it's late on a Sunday night, so I can't go...

    If I end up in a hospital after that concert I will be happy. I left Ozzfest bleeding.

    Ech, gigantour will be total shit this year.Also Id like to go to behemoth etc, but I cant get there. Fuck that shit
    I saw:
    -Suffocation
    -Summer Slaughter
    -Ozzfest 07( pretty shit)
    -3iob cause they come through here often

    I dont go to many concerts at all because I live in the middle of nowhere, and most metal bands dont even bother to go past Seattle to vancouver.

    I've never gotten beaten up at a concert, although I usually stay out of the pits. Helps that I'm 6'3. During a Killswitch Engage show, though, the entire floor turned into a brawl. There were fights everywhere. Nasty business. I left about then (mostly because they sucked and the show was almost over and I couldn't stand to hear them butcher Holy Diver). I know some kid who got shoved into a pit and some massive Finnish guy almost broke his arm.

    Anyone else had bad experiences in mosh pits?
