Green Day/Blink 182-Pop Disaster tour 2002
I'm not a fan of either band( I like some of Green Day's older stuff like Brainstew). Green Day performed really well for a band that I didn't like too much. Blink was um, uh, let's see...f*cking TERRIBLE. The absolute worst live act I have ever witnessed. Tom knocked over his microphone twice, had to switch guitars mid-song because the one he had at the time was out of tune, although it doesn't really matter because HE CAN'T PLAY GUITAR ANYWAYS. Seriously. The one song that I was semi-pumped to hear by them was Dammit. Of course Tom f*cked it up. Travis did a really cool drum solo where he was turned upside down and whatnot while playing. That was cool, but he wasted his talent on that band. Both Mark and Tom's singing was absolutely atrocious but at least Mark at least kind of seems like he can play his instrument. You all know that live CD they put out, The Mark Tom and Travis Show? It's bullsh*t. They do NOT sound like that live at all. I want to know how much studio work was done with that album.
Bonnaroo Music Festival 2006:
Radiohead-Amazing. f*cking amazing. The best concert I've ever seen in my life. They played 28 songs with two encores, nailed every single one. They literally had the entire audience of 80,000 people in a trance. I nearly cried at the end of Karma Police. I could go on and on but I don't see the point really. If you ever have the opportunity to see this band in your life, you better. It is a monumental experience.
Beck-Beck kicked ass. This was the perfect appetizer right before Radiohead. He's hilarious and such a good entertainer. At one point his band started eating salad at a dinner table on the stage while Beck played a few acoustic songs, and after that the band started jamming with their forks and glasses! It was brilliant.
Other bands that I saw at Bonnaroo were:
Umphreys Mcgee-awesome show.
The Disco Biscuits- same for them.
Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers-little boring but at least I was hammered off my nuts.
Sonic Youth-rocked hard.
There were many more but those were the ones that stuck out the most. I've also seen the Barenaked Ladies twice, they're decent.

You got to see In Flames...lucky bastard
I saw that same show
I've also seen trivium play with Bodom and Iron Maiden
Last night was the Placebo concert *swoons at word*, and OMFG, it was TEH AMAZING.
Let me tell you, losing my concert virginity to Placebo [there's that word again! ^.^] has to be the most INCREDIBLE, BREATHTAKING , EXTRAORDINARY and everyothersynomonrelating! experience of a lifetime. Dead set baby.
The lights went down... the audience went dead silent... anticipating... waiting... anticipating... waiting... waiting... and amongst this, there was almost a moment of... panic...
"Will they? Will they? It almost seems unreal... unreal... I'm dreaming, yes I'm dreaming..."
And then... WHAM! The lights went up full glare... into my eyes... I was blinded... but it washed away my previous fears.
"Yes yes, it's really happening... yes, oh god..."
Then Brian walks out on stage... strutting with with feline grace... gorgeousness... I went into an utter trance... it was beautiful.
And I swear, I had never felt so happy in my whole entire life. I was complete.
I haven't been to any concerts but I missed Dream Theater's concert in August, possibly the best concert ever, and I missed it.
Until I make a better one anyways.

It was so f*cked up! The lines for beer and food were about 1,5 hour, so we all got dehydrated
But the music was good though! The all went nuts on stage
U wouldn'd go see guns n roses if they were in my town. It isn't really guns n roses. It's just Axl and the Other guys.
I saw U2 in 2004 at GM Place for free - I was also in their music video for "City of Blinding Lights" (AAH OMG ROCKED!!!)
I saw Protest the Hero in 2005... They're freinds of a freind of my brother so that was free... (meh)
I saw Avril Lavigne in 2003 for free (sucked)
