My Chem - Balls (not my idea I'd have you know).
Tool - Amazing.
Trivium - Amazing.
Mudvayne - Freaking good.
Rolling Stones - Great.
Peaches - Orgasmic.
The Police - Really good.
Enter Shikari - Freaking good.
Rage Against the Machine - Had a crap place, so couldn't see much.
A whole string of NZ bands..
And that's about all I can think of at the moment.
Concerts I have been to: Killswitch Engage- Cool, but the drummer kept falling out of time Shadows Fall- Amazing. The lead guitarist lit his guitar on fire. >_> Mushroomhead- Awesome Sum 41- Pretty terrible. The bassist had no idea what he was doing, and their new lead guitarist looked really uncomfortable playing their early stuff. The Vines- Meh, it was alright. Iron Maiden- Best. Concert. Ever. Eminem- I was 10 >_>" Alter Bridge- Amazingly loud. And they repeated the last 15 seconds to the song Metalingus for about 5 minutes straight >_> It was still good, though. Those are the bands that almost everyone would know... And then there are hundreds of local bands...
The most recent concert I went to see was James Taylor, and it was fantastic. The guy is 60 years old, but watching him perform was no different than watching a performance of his from 1971. He still has all the talent in the world, still has his amazing voice, and still gives his shows so much energy. I loved it. Concerts I have been to: Led Zepplica (Led Zeppelin tribute band) The Pink Floyd Exeprience (Pink Floyd tribute band) Rain: The Beatles Experience (Beatles tribute band) When We Were Fab (Beatles tribute band) Back In Back (AC/DC tribute band) The Who Eric Clapton Jethro Tull Rush James Taylor The greatest show that I have been to, even though they were not legends (like some of the concerts I have been lucky to have seen) was "Led Zepplica". There were just so many cool people there, and the spirit of the 70's was truly there. It was electrifying. And even though I was born in the 90's, it felt like I had been taken back to a time which I did not even know- that's how good it was. And there was a very energetic vibe in the crowd, and furthermore- it was the closest thing to the real Led. It was REAL good. A show I'd like to go to is Alice Cooper. He's coming to my city, and I'd love to see that. I'd also like to catch any of the surviving members of Zeppelin (Page, Plant, JPJ), or Paul McCartney and Ringo Starr of The Beatles.
