The local core kiddy bands manage to stuff up quite a bit, from horrible mixing (and I mean HORRIBLE), to hitting other band members while prancing around like cocksmokers with the injured member having to either squint and hold back tears the whole show while blood drizzles down his head, or leave the stage all together.

Really? I went to a Damageplan concert in 2004 where the guitar player got f***ing shot on stage!!!

EDIT: I could have sworn it was "Pantera gig" when I quoted that...
I pride myself on my humility.

But he wasn't performing with Pantera, which is what the original quote was.

I think it's fair to say that every Winehouse gig falls under the disastrous category...

EDIT: on topic; I've been to many a disastrous local gig. Never really been to a complete and utter failure, pro or amateur.

My Chemical Romance @ Download Festival, June 2007 – A year after they were bottled at Reading, MCR suffered the same fate at Download Festival. This time, however, it was much worse. Some bottles were full of urine, while golf balls were added to the onslaught. The band carried on, although an angry Gerard Way blasted: “This song is called 'thanks for all the bottles, thanks for all the piss, thanks for all the golf balls, thanks for all the apples and thanks for all the sticky shit'”.

LMAO assholes.... nobody deserves that, no matter how shitty you are.

The first time I saw the Brian Jonestown Massacre part of the roof of the tent I was watching them in caved in soaking the monitors at the front of the stage. Anton decided to push ass the gear back so they only got through 4 songs. I wasn't that bothered though, I kinda expected something to happen.

every show of a band with members under 16 years old EVER

Hey, most of my band's gigs have gone well... though the drummer is the only one under 16

I was at the show in the No Fear Energy tour when Alexi Laiho walked off the stage after three songs because of the pain from his broken shoulder. Disappointing as hell, but I can't really blame him, what's he supposed to do? The whole crowd started booing, but Lamb of God made up for it.

This thing called Hip Hop vs Metal, someone brought a bat and tried to hit one of the bouncers. Then all the bouncers jumped on his face and the police came.
This is why I don't like arguing on the internet.

Hmm.
Well, there was a power cut in the middle of the set when I saw Rollin's Band. And there was the Wildhearts gig when Ginger was 'under the influence', so to speak.
#24
Just a lot of local shows where the power box couldn't handle everything, and a breaker was blown. Sometimes it got fixed, sometimes it didn't.

I went back in time and saw that one Doors show in Miami. Crazy shit man.
How happy is the blameless vestal's lot!The world forgetting, by the world forgot...

ah... me and my boyfriend went to a local gig... so we were eally close to the stage on the front line. .... the bassist from one of the bands came close and was what seemed like purposely aiming his headstock for mine and my boyfriends heads haha. he was a psycho XD

At AFI, Davey did this big theatrical poem thing before they kicked into Dancing Through Sunday, and just as he said, "and we dance" all the gear except his microphone cut out. He was just standing there, one lace-gloved hand in the air looking like an idiot, and then just said,
"Oh, ****. Not again."
Everyone laughed and it went down quite well. He turned the entire concert into a Q&A session for about twenty minutes. It was one of the best gigs ive ever been to, and he converted his disaster into a really well done, intimate success.

At Avalon Drive at the EKKA the bassist kicked a bottle of water into the crowd. It clipped my ear and smacked some poor girl right in the face. He climbed down off stage and went and hugged her and all was well.
...In my opinion.

VR. Scott Weiland talking about quitting the band and leaving the stage for like half an hour.

A handful of small local gigs have been particularly painful to witness. Bad jokes, awkward silences, nothing tuned.

Also, when a band - who had been delayed about three hours by the organisers - had their set cut off after their second song, that was pretty bad.
Quote by DrewsGotTheLife
yea man, who ever doesnt like pantera or think they suck doesnt like metal, end of discussion, they changed the freakin world n made history, so don't be sayin they suck, have respect, same goes for machine head n lamb of god cuz their good too

Best band ever!

The Wildhearts' performance at Sonisphere last year was also the most disasterous gig I've been to. An amp cocked up before they could play, and for some reason they had no spares, so they didn't get to play the full set. What pissed me off about the gig was the still played Everlone and The Revolution Will Be Televised in full. If they'd subbed the long endings out for some of their shorter songs then the gig would've been better.

I went to a gig where somebody fainted, nearly died and when we all took care of him and went back inside the bar was set on fire. Boy, I had fun that night.
#34
When I saw Magnetic Man at the Electric Picnic last year I could barely hear the music over the sound of people's voices and dancing so I left early. That really pissed me off. Turns out that the speakers had blown before the set.

They do seem to tour on a pretty low budget. A couple of years ago, there was extensive between-song banter, because they had one tech doing both guitars and the bass.

I remember being in year 8 and watching a lunchtime gig at school and the bass player snapped a string and the guitar amps kept cutting out.

A saw Slash have a near disaster. He jumped up on the monitors and fell back, he saved himself at the last second, nearly landed flat on his ass.

I've had some "near misses" with all my bands.....

- Back in Lithium we played this house party in prattville where some punks showed up and wanted to bitch and complain about the band even though they did not even LIVE in the same neighborhood. Anyway, one of the guys started singling me out and I almost got in a fight with them till my girlfriend, well, I'll leave out that part. Our third guitarist went outside to fight them, apparently the police were called to break up the fight or something. It was at least a huge shouting match.

- When we were still called Smokin' 66' there was that night where my 6 month old Bugera 333XL died twice on stage, the second time resulting in me flying off my rocker and smashing a guitar stand, causing large pieces of metal tubing to fly everywhere, and then badmouth the sales at the music store I bought it from. The only casualties were my footswitch cable, a new dent in the control panel, an audience member found my clean channel volume knob, a kink in my Fender Jaguar's D string, and a broken output jack on tne Jag-Stang. I also had a freakout session with effects that night to vent stress off during one of the number where I someitmes do that sort of thing and damn near passed out from screaming too hard too much into the mic during the solo.....If I remember right. The upside is people thought it was a part of the show.

Worst gig aside from many of those 50 that I heard about was the Nirvana 1991 Trees gig in TX where Kurt smashed the mixer and got into a fight with a bouncer.
