i've been watching different concerts at least once a month. classical and pop. its kind of my project in my music class. I've seen Avril when she came here and so as the other local bands that we have here. It was really fascinating. smile.gif

I went to one Hilary Duff concert when I was nine, but I don't like her anymore. She's just weird.

Last night I saw BWO live. They were great!! Before I saw them I just thought they were, well they had some good songs. My friends were going and I decided to go with them. *lol* One show, and I'm a BWO fan! tongue.gif

So that means that my list of concerts now looks like this:

-Hanson (Stockholm, Sweden 2005-04-13, the best one so far, I love them!)
-Electric Banana Band (Örebro, Sweden 2005-08-28, outdoors, pretty good)
-Plasma-Jet (Örebro, Sweden 2006-08-13, at NärCon, not the kind of music I listen to, but it was fun to see a "real japanese band" wink.gif )
-BWO (Karlskoga, Sweden 2006-08-27, really great show, became a fan)

Not many - three in total. Still, it's a start!
  • B*Witched. Shhh. I was like, ten. And loved every moment. Go me.
  • Stereophonics. And they were fantastic, even if it was the day after I'd got back from Australia and I was ridiculously jetlagged. And had to go to college the next day. I loved 'em, and standing is the way to go.
  • Oasis. I loved every minute, even if a super moody friend of my was there and nearly spoiled it. Still. Me and my other friends had a great time, and I discovered I knew the lyrics to every single song they played, despite owning only one album. xD

I go to local punk shows almost every weekend, but the venue's small, so I haven't really seen anyone notable there, aside from the Aquabats.

The only big band I've seen in concert is "new" Guns N' Roses (which consists of Axl Rose, some very scary looking studio musicians, and a lead guitarist who believes he was raised by chickens.)

I don't really have a preference between small venues and stadium shows, though. You get different things out of both.
funny how everything was roses when we held onto the guns<33

Ya know, the Killers are ACTUALLY coming to the nearest city to me for once in April... I REALLY wanna go... I just don't think Mom will let me go by myself and she won't go with... so I have to find someone to drive me there since I prolly won't be allowed to drive all the way there by myself and back...
I will be upset if I can't go. When you've only went to a Hilary Duff concert...
Yeah. See my sitch?

Ohhh yeahhh.. haha

I've gone to plenty of concerts in my lifetime but they were mostly classical pianists. My first rock concert was on February 5, 2003 and that was Linkin Park's Meteora World Tour at the Long Beach Arena (CA) with Story of the Year, Hoobastank, and POD. I went to see LIT and Hoobastank later that summer (and got a tour of their tour bus.. that was AWESOME), and I went to Projekt Revolution in 2004. Hmm my last concert had to be summer of 2006. I went to see Nickel****, Hoobastank, Chevelle, and Hinder. I didn't expect to go (my friend surprised me that day) but let me tell you this: Nickel**** is GREAT in concert. I never really was much of a fan, but they're really good. Hm.. I've been to plenty of local shows and such. Christian conventions/conferences often have really good bands too. The next concert I'm going to is on February 21, 2007 and I'm going to see The Red Jumpsuit Apparatus (any fans in here?!?!?) at the House of Blues. After that, I'm going to see Taking Back Sunday, Armor For Sleep, and underOATH on March 13, 2007. It's going to be awesome! smile.gif

Any fans of the above mentioned bands?? smile.gif
