Got any Awesome concert stories???

Postby p1nkfl0yd1an on Mon Apr 10, 2006 2:43 pm

Chances are if you're a human being living in a modernized country... you've been to a concert or two. Got any sweet stories or silly experiences to share???

I've got a few. The first was when I went to see Medeski Martin and Wood in my hometown of Lawrence, Kansas. It also happened to be 4/20. Now I'm not really a pot smoker at all and I wasn't planning on smoking at all but seeing as Lawrence is the pot capital of Kansas it's pretty hard to avoid on 4/20... when Medeski Martin and Wood is playing. As soon as the band started playing and the lights went down nearly every other person crouched over, pulled out a pipe and proceeded to hotbox the entire concert hall. I never even purposefully smoked but by the end of the night I was definitely feeling the effects, and I think the band might have as well because their playing got a little loose if you know what I mean.

Second story is a recent one... last saturday my university put on a free concert for students called Day On The Hill. It was an all day showcase of pretty much local bands with a well known indie band called Spoon headlining. I didn't even know about Spoon a year ago but stumbled upon them randomly searching for Medeski Martin and Wood on Itunes and seeing "Users who listened to MMW also listened to Spoon". Anyhow last saturday me and a friend had a lot of captain in us and we were jamming out to Spoon while the hippies stood still and did their little... stand still while dancing thing. (Lawrence is infamous for being the most apathetic town when it comes to music... we really get into it mentally but most of us refuse to show enjoyement) The show ends and we notice that the barricade definitely doesnt barricade the way around to the back of the stage. We looked around to see if security was going to jump on us but there was no security to speak of and we waltzed back to the rear of the stage and happened to find Britt Daniels the lead singer of Spoon in the flesh. After a quick convo about how the show went he signed our ticket stubs and even posed for a picture. How many people can say the front man of their favorite band (favorite band that is still touring and under the age of 60...) stopped to have a conversation about music with you??? It was pretty freaking sweet.

I was at a Motley Crue show and squeezed my way up front, where I got to tap Mick Mars on his foot and looked down at me and gave me this crazy smile and stepped back, then at the end Tommy Lee up ended a bottle of jack all over the front row. So I got to go home dowsed in whiskey.

At a Heart concert me and my buds sat all the way in the back row, I never stopped smoking pot and never did see the same joint twice. Now if I can just remember who the opening band was?.....

The funnest thing I ever saw was at a Kiss show, there was a lack of place to go the bathroom. The one little building they had was a mess. There was even girls in the guys restroom pissing in the sinks. Nasty. Guys being guys where going where ever they felt like, in corners, garbage cans, round the the building.

Yeah it's been a while since I was last at a concert.

Hah, if only. Mosh pits are not for me. My spleen ruptures far too easily. I forgot the funny part about the MMW concert. There's an indoor smoking ban in Lawrence so you can't smoke cigarettes inside. A guy a few rows up lit up a cigarette and a guy on security walked through the crowd, took the cigarette out of the guy's hands and smashed it in his fist. Cigarettes 0 - Pot 300

Years ago, I fingered my mates missus in the middle of the pit when he was right next to us.

When I was 15 I went to see Ash supported by Feeder and Silverchair at the Forum in London. Sadly, the only tickets I could get were on the balcony, whereas all my mates got floor tickets. I snuck a hipflask of Vodka into the gig with me and as the amount of Vodka in the bottle got less and less the 20ft drop to the floor below got smaller and smaller. After I while I was just like "FUCK IT" and I hang dropped off the balcony where my waiting mates broke my fall! Absolutely awesome gig after that. Utterly mental.

Also, in the Crazy House in Liverpool there is a chillout room, and once whilst wasted my ex climbed on top of me and just started riding the hell out of me before I had a chance to stop her. After a few minutes the bouncers came storming by and I just thought to myself 'christ I'm going to get murdered' as the bouncers are viscious in there. But it turned out they were escorting a guy out of the club and not after my blood. Anyway the last bouncer in line (there were 4/5 of them) saw what were up to and came storming up to us. He leant over my birds shoulder, looked me right in the eyes and just said "BEHAVE" and then stormed off.
