I was at Tom Petty last night (great show!) and he must have waited 4 or 5 minutes or something like that. BTBAM waited a while too if I remember.

AC/DC, in Portugal.

Everyone started clapping and shouting for a solid 10 minutes, but they didn't come back on.

4 or 5 minutes is a long time? Jesus, I waited near half an hour for Black Label Society, Zakk took FOREVER to come back out.

The same goes for Korn, we all must have been chanting and cheering for close to 20 minutes.
#7
I took my girlfriend to see Taking Back Sunday last year. They took 2 or 3 minutes to come back on, but played for another hour or so...
#8
Both times I saw Modest Mouse it was like ten minutes, at least. Plus an absurdly long set up time. Well worth it though.

Does anyone else find it odd that most bands plan to have an "encore"? Doesn't that sort of defeat the purpose of an encore?
Stop whining and learn your theory!

Yeah, some black guy with a yankees cap walks into the ice cream parlor, and I said "We dont serve your kind here," as in, yankee fans, i guess he thought something else and left.

I hate encores. Every goddamn band does it now. I would actually love it if a band just came up before the last song and said 'this is our last song of the night, no really it is' and then just finished and left. I'm so sick of bands saying 'this is our last song' and then playing three more.

I waited ~15 for Mastodon at the NEMHF but they were having issues with the soundguy so it was a bit understandable.

I don't know about length in between sets, but Paul McCartney played 2 encores, which was totally unexpected.

i can't believe that they would do such a thing!! Giving a crowd what they want?!?! It's absurd!

saw the stones in lausanne switzerland, they were an hour late to take the stage then waited 20 mins for the encore, gotta love em though
#20
Pearl Jam usually does 2 encores, with about a 10-12 min gap before the first one, RHCP were like 20 min before they came back on, Foo Fighters about 6-8min.
4 min is incredibly short to wait for a band to come back on

I probably waited 4-5 minutes when i saw Lynyrd Skynyrd, but it was worth it because i got to yell FREE BIRD!!
#22
pearl jam does the best encores i was in zagreb 4 years ago and they came back for about 3-5 minutes but then again they went off the stage, and the crowd kept on shouting and the lights went on but we didn't want to leave and they came back again
that was my first "bigger" concert and it still is my favorite concert

Damageplan. They still haven't finished the set...

i once went to see HIM and they walked off said goodbye, they had played every song and people were still yelling for more. So when they came back out they played a cover of rebel yell. I think bands should plan an encore but not a crazy huge song that everyone knows is coming they should pick some random cult classic and only play it if say the crowd is going crazy for like 10-15 min.

Iron Maiden was like 15 minutes or so. They came back and played like 4 songs, but it was obviously planned.

I've only actually seen two bands who played an encore. Vader were off for about 30 seconds before they came back on and played another song. Metallica only left the stage long enough to change guitars.

Metallica in Caracas came back after like 10 minutes of thousands of euphoric teenage and adult metalheads screaming their lungs out (we were very excited because they came here for the first time in 11 years).

haha, yeah I saw him here. Very entertaining guy.

But I think encored should be a bit more natural. Something that is expected, but not planned. I think the only time I knew the artist wasn't gonna encore was Buddy Guy, who let his band play a song or two, and then after they were done, they got the audience to call Buddy's name, but he never came back out...

The Cribs do that. They introduce the last song then say "no encores." before playing it. I find that more odd than a band coming back on.

As for me, Bloc Party came back on after about 2 minutes, then went away, and all the lights came on. People were halfway out of the venue after about 5 minutes after their last song, when they came back on out of nowhere. Cue stampede.

I was in the middle of saying to my mate that I was gutted they didn't play "She's Hearing Voices" when they came back on to play it It backfired a bit though, some people didn't even realise they came on again and had left.

Pearl Jam did three encores when I saw them, with about a half-hour before the last one.

Encores can be a good thing to plan. At least to know what song you're going to play. Example of bad planning; My band had a show about two weeks back. We had played about a 20 song setlist, and thought we totally exhausted the crowd. We turned to put our instruments up and the audience started chanting "encore! encore! encore!" We just looked at eachother like o.o "Uhhh.... what do we do now?"
#39
A7X years ago were like half an hour late, played a crap set, and then waited like half an hour for the encore. Waste of time.

At a Thrice show about 5 or 6 years ago they came out to do an encore. They played the opening riff to T/C then shouted "April Fools!". (It was April 1st) Best/worst April fools joke ever.
I don't always post in the threads but when I do its random and pointless because I'm ignorant enough to think you care.
