What have been the best opening bands you've seen at a concert?
Rule: They can't be an already big band opening for a bigger band. Example: Modest Mouse opening for R.E.M.

Mine would be:
God Fires Man (Opened for Filter)
We are the Fury (Opened for Silverchair)
#2
Hm...

Probably Amon Amarth when they opened for Slayer at the Unholy Alliance.
#3
I think maybe The Birds Of Avalon who opened up for the Raconteurs when I saw them in Las Vegas....I haven't too very many shows yet but out of the ones I have seen, they were my favorite supporting band....

Alright, I'll give them a try, Japanese Black Speed rarely disappoints.

Hmm judging from your pic you'd fit in more with a fat busted tribute.

Not sure about the best, but for me the worst was definitely Mars Volta opening for the Chili Peppers. It was just noise. I liked their studio stuff, but live it was awful. I hope I just caught a bad show.
#7
The Crimea (Opened for Billy Corgan)

And... A band that opened for Sonic Youth.

I can't remember the name.

DorkusMalorkus was there. He might remember.

Foxy Shazam. I saw them when they opened for Senses Fail, and they easily made the show. A great live performance


Either that or Evergreen Terrace when they opened for As I Lay Dying

Man, I saw the chili peppers in Quebec, The Mars Volta was a pack of noise as well... And never ending 30 min songs. I was dissapointed when lisening compared to their studio stuff.

3 put on a great show opening for Opeth and DT. I think their guitarist broke around 17 strings in their last song.
#29
My Darkest days opening for Three Days Grace. That was a great concert, but the highlight of the night was when I caught a drum stick from the the three days grace drummer. (I gave it to my buddy since he took me to the concert.)

Yeah they are. Then again, no odd band that sings in Japanese is gonna get very far in the Western world but yeah you're right. Fantastic live too. And I met them afterwards
