After seeing the best thing to happen to you at a gig thread knocking about yesterday, I thought I'd make this.

I also have inspiration in the form of losing my wallet at Pendulum in Leeds last night.
I usually wear the same shorts that have button pockets to gigs, and keep my wallet fastened up in them.
However, last night was freeeeezing, so I wore jeans. Was planning on getting a taxi so it wouldn't have been so bad, but the taxi was 20 minutes late already so we decided to walk it. Even though it was snowing and I was wearing jeans and a t-shirt (I wouldn't take a jacket to a gig with me it'd piss me off).

And the rest speaks for itself; was in the pits for most of the gig, which was awesome. Pendulum started off Slam with the intro to Master Of Puppets!

But yeha, being knocked about quite a bit and my wallet fell out of my pocket and was stolen, because I rang the venue today and it hadn't been handed in ( I woudn't have even bothered trying this, but my phone was handed in at Arctic Monkeys when I dropped that.

It had in it:
Student card (worth £10)
£25 in cash
My cash card
My drivers license (worth £45)

Absolutely gutted.

Your stories?

Had a couple of ribs cracked when I went to see Pitchshifter one time.

That was pretty sucky.

Nothing bad has ever happened at a gig. It's like they exist outside reality or something.

Broken nose in that very same moshpit
I fell asleep on my arm once, scariest thing that ever happened to me. I thought it was kill.

But seeing Pitchshifter play in their hometown is definitely the definition of "win".

The only problem is how it happened. I went down in the pit, and a fatty landed on top of me.



Not quite so impressive now.

Always make sure your shoes are really tight before you go into the pit lol

I got into an argument with some scene kid about religion before a Between the Buried and Me show in Charlotte. Thing was, I was rolling balls and the guy pissed me off so it got a little heated outside the venue and the police had to come and stop us. I missed the first 45 minutes of the show because I had such a hard time acting sober in front of the cops...

Bloody fattys

That is possibly the best word ever though, "fatty"

Especially when Jimmy Carr says it

Got kicked in the head by a crowd surfer, would have been fine if it was just a pair of vans or whatever, but no...it's one of these people who wear these massive, thick leather, black boots. Needless to say I passed out.

Lost my phone,
Fly leaf were supporting (twice),
Being on the balcony at the Apollo in Manchester - no dancing allowed!

All very sucky things. Unfortunatly I wasn't on the balcony for fly leaf - I'd have enjoyed getting some shut eye (like I did when I slept through yellow card).

I was wearing these Cargo pants once and they fit well and usually I dont wear a belt with them. they have a button on the front and elastic on teh sides so they fit ok.
Went to see Slayer and others and the unholy tour and Lamb of God came one.
Place went mad, the button came undone, I got punched in the head and then my bargo pants fell down.
I walked out of that pit like a rape victim desperately holding on to my pants.
was a good gig.

accidentally overloaded my pedal board so that it would just randomly shut off and turn all my pedals off. And then my amp was on the ground next to my truck while i was loading my cab, my mom walked into my amp, and broke off the noise gate nob for my JSX. I was supremely pissed....

They don't allow dancing on the balcony? That's bollocks!
At Leeds Academy last night I could see loads of people dancing up on the balcony.

Some gigs I just wouldn't go to unless they were standing to be honest. Especially at the Apollo its awesome there.

I saw NIN here a few years ago and was on the balcony, people were sure dancing then.

And when I've seen Tool and Deftones there, despite me being down on the floor, I did notice poeple dancing up there.

What gig was it?

I got into a fight in a circle pit and knocked a guy out because he kept pushing this little kid in front of me down, like just slamming him for no reason. The guy was probably 10 years older than the kid so I just knocked the **** out of him...........that actually wasnt bad it felt nice.
#27
I thought I liked the Hives before I saw them live. After every song the guy gives you a lecture about how hes the best rock n roll frontman in existence and wont play again until he thinks the crowd is screaming loud enough. Especially annoying as I was waiting for RAtM to come on next

Edit: I guess its not so bad compared to some of the other posts ^^ And ive never been kicked in the head too hard

Hey, f*ck you.

hXc dancers may be the biggest assholes on the planet. I applaud Titansfan920.

Anyway, when I saw Rush, there was some drunk idiot, that kept calling someone way across the venue. "Can you see me now?", waving his 4th beer around. Was pretty hilarious now that I think about it.

He and someone else then proceeded to pass a joint back and forth around the middle of the concert, and act like idiots. I have no problem with pot, though. Hell, I may have even gotten high off the secondhand smoke. Still, these guys were pretty annoying. Spilling beer on me...

You know those armbands with spikes on them?
I got hit in the face with one of them during a festival here in Estonia, when Pedigree was playing (You probably dont know the band, Estonian industrial metal or whatever).
WOW Did my face hurt after that, I looked like I had gotten stinged in the face from 3 million bees.

I got kicked in the face by a crowd surfer and lost my glasses. I'm severely short sighted and literally cannot read regular sized print until its a few inches away from my face without them. Because my prescription is so high it costs me about £200 for new glasses, so basically I got kicked in the face, was blind for almost 2 weeks and was out £200.

I seriously almost passed out at a BB King concert while we were waiting for it to start. It was really hot and all those people standing practically against you...I had to sit down for a few mins to get a hold of myself.
#37
not me but... at my concert, while my band was playing 2 people got knocked out in the mosh and started bleeding from the ears. 2 separate accounts. i guess my band is just too brutal for some.
i hope they survived!

EDIT: for me it'd probly be when the singer for abagail williams launched off the stage and landed on my face. the kid behind me had it worse though, he got the shoe to the nose.

The worst thing? Not getting one in the first place

unless you count my school band when the tubist fell backwards off the riser

EDIT: I thought you meant while performing. For going to gigs, it would probably be getting stuck behind two tall guys sharing a joint. It was last year when I was 13,so my parents were there.

And all you guys talking about mosh pit injuries, suck it up. If it's that bad, don't go in mosh pits.
