Metallica boring!? You're crazy! Seen 'em around 04-05 sometime. They left out all but a couple of the St. Anger songs, thankfully. Frontline floor seats. Incredibly intense. Would never bring a girl at least to the floor. Anyway at the end Kirk and James threw picks out and I got one. Fell right at my feet and when I went down to grab it I though I was going to die. People near me saw what I was going for and suddenly I was engulfed in a mass of flesh. Had some help getting up thankfully cause I thought I was going to get stampeded. A hard to describe brief yet oh so long moment. However, I was victorious.

Saw Manson twice during two different Ozzfests. Awesome. Never got to see his real shows though. But it was good nonetheless.

Tom Petty at least six times. Went there one year and there were rumors of Stevie Nicks making an appearance. The local radio had everybody stirred up with rumors of a sell out show and there were 6 of us who went without tickets. Figured we'd grab them at the box office like any other time. Well we had to try. I decided to go find out. Collected a few hundred bucks to get everyone's tickets. Waited in a long line and they weren't sold out. They just weren't selling anymore cheap lawn seats until the pavilion was filled up more. It's an outdoor venue. Finally I get to the window and asked for 6 tickets. The nice lady says to me to look carefully as one of the tickets was a front row seat! Of course I snagged it. It was a single ticket which meant I couldn't sit with friends but I didn't care. Finally I go and find an usher and she escorted me not just to the front row but front and dead center right under Petty's microphone. With all the prior uncertainty, a sudden act of randomness nabs me the bar-none best seat in the house and best seat I've ever had for any show!

Seen Kid Rock during the American Badass tour when Joe C was still alive. That was a 2 1/2 hour incredible rock show. The Kid truly rocked. Great stage show. Great rock show not meant for kids by any means.

Ozzy of course a couple times during Ozzfests. Once with Sabbath, once without. Completely amazed at the clarity of his singing voice while he can't speak a legible sentence.

Megadeth twice. Once Ozzfest, once solo. They're freaking awesome and full of adrenaline.

Guns -n- Roses during the Buckethead years yet before Chinese Democracy ever came out and was still in the rumor mill. Axl was a bit late of course but all in all pretty good. As an old school GnR diehard I will be forever disappointed I was too young to ever see the old lineup. Another intense experience on the floor. Had to shove some big tall fat dude, must've weighed in the high 200's, I'm 160. He kept trying to mosh but wasn't fun about it. He just wanted to knock people around. He ended up shoving some girl near me who I didn't know but I drew the line and shoved his fat ass as hard as I could. If it weren't for the wall of people he went up against he'd have fallen and almost did. He gained footing, locked eyes with me and looked like a raged bull. Knowing what was about to happen I just took a deep breath and in my head I said 'shlt, here it comes' and stood my ground. I intended to punch him in the face but had I missed he'd have crushed me and everyone behind me. It would've been a big mess and people would've been hurt. Thank goodness my brother and some dude were on each side of me and saw it too. The bull was charging and they both stepped in front of me and blocked him. He eyed me up a few times afterwards but that was that. He got the message... Don't hit girls!

Rolling Stones at PNC Park in '05. Yet another show I watched alone due to scoring an awesome ticket. An immense stage production that show was. They came with Pearl Jam, ehhh...

John Fogerty once. Never heard a voice that was so identical to listening to the cd's. very good show.

Aerosmith a couple times. Very good and also sounded very much like what you here on the radio.

Beastie Boys in '98 in Cleveland. Traveled for my first concert ever. It was their Intergalactic tour. I don't have time to tell the crazy story about the trips to and from that show. Craziest part was a State Trooper pulled me over for speeding in Pennsylvania somewhere near the Ohio border. Was briefly in his car checking my info and quickly came back to tell me he had to go after another car and that I had to follow him. Cop still had my license and registration. He takes the hell off. So I slammed the pedal and followed him. He must've been going 130mph because the three guys I had with me told me to slow down as I was unknowingly doing 105. He still had my stuff! What if he was out of sight and he took an exit? I didn't know what to do. I had to try and keep up. A few miles later I caught up as he had some other car pulled over obviously for something far more important. He came back, handed me my things and said 'slow down' and walked away. I always suspected what he did was incredibly irresponsible. First, he had me go on a brief high speed chase. Second, I was behind his car and the car he pulled over which was in front of him. The cop car was in the middle. What if the car he pulled over got out and started shooting? Me and my friends would've been directly in the line of fire. Or what if I had crashed following him? Or what if he'd have left me stranded without my license and registration on an interstate highway? I'm sure the next cop to pull me over would not have believed my story. I've always wanted to ask a police officer what they thought of that story.

Honorable mentions... Kiss, Steve Miller, George Thorogood, Dave Matthews(puke), Snoop Dogg, Korn, Linkin Park, Limp Bizkit, Godsmack(opened for Metallica), Counting Crows and Goo Goo Dolls(for my lady) and so many more I can't remember now. Wow, I've seen a lot of shows.

Sorry for the memoirs. I started with one thing and took a trip down memory lane. Hope you enjoyed a couple stories though.

Haha always fun to hear other's concert tales,when i saw metallica the show kept getting delayed some kind of probs with the electronics may have been the reasoning for the uninspired performance the show was just flat!I always wanted to see GNR's back in their best days aswell,if not for axl's ego they would have been the beatles of their day but even bigger.As i said earlier back in early 2000's manson's show's were epic the opening band got boo'ed so bad that had they not finally stopped playing the place was about to riot!I was in the pit so i was ready haha.You have listed a few other's i have seen aswell if you ever get the chance catch a zombie concert,it wont dissapoint!

^ Definitely up there

The Dear Hunter "We've Got a Score to Settle" is probably one of my favorites by them. Got to see them when they toured with mwY a few years back.... Granted Casey Crescenzo is a fairly brilliant musician.

In 2004 I saw Alicia Keys performing in concert in Perugia in central Italy.  The concert was in some sort of giant concrete bowl (not a Roman ampitheatre) in the city centre.

That same year, in Perugia Football Club's stadium, I saw a concert by Italian hard rock singer Vasco Rossi, someone I'd never heard of before, but my Italian friend's dad got us two tickets to see him (the stadium was only a few hundreds yards from their house) and it was quite good.  We couldn't find our seats in the packed stadium so we had to stand on the steps in the stand with people also on the steps behind and above us.  A few times all these people on the steps behind and above us pushed forward and I thought we were all going to fall over on top of each other like a line of dominoes and be crushed to death on the concrete steps.  Other than that, though, it was a good night.
