that'll cut you to ribbons, sometimes
and all you can do is just wait by the moon
and bleed if it's what she says you ought to do

Oh ****. I missed out like the biggest gig I've ever been to.

The Vaccines
The Wailers
The Stone Roses

Heaton Park, first gig in England in 20 years
#14
Too many to list, but ones that left an amazing impression have been:

Rush x4
Mastodon on The Hunter tour
Alice In Chains two weeks ago
Tool
Roger Waters The Wall... I don't see how anyone attending this show could have left unimpressed.
#15
Red Hot Chili Peppers
Evile
MCR
Jon Gomm
Few local gigs

And, saving the best til last, Iron Maiden.

The 2 bands I'd like to see most atm would be Opeth and Daft Punk.
#16
Been to two and thats only to see a friends band.

They were supporting a band called Revoker.
The second time they were supporting William Control, the lead singer of Aiden's shitty solo project. Also there was Fearless Vampire Killers.

Revoker gig was my first and was packed, a great first time experience. William Control/FVP was god awful and waste of time/money.

I think the singer was sick or drunk or something because he looked like he was ready to barf on everyone up front.

Alice Cooper, Iron Maiden and Toto.

It's funny because Toto came to Pietarsaari, Finland earlier in July this year and like half the city plus people from around Finland came to the show. It was a really big deal over here that a band that big came to such a small city like mine. We don't even have 20,000 inhabitants in Pietarsaari.
And in 2011 I saw Alice Cooper and Iron Maiden in our capital Helsinki in the Olympia Stadium.

You know that old saying: "Men who play bass in the band have the largest genitalia." Well, it's the same for women.

Oh, Sleeper x2

Basically I've seen a whole bunch of generic "Christian" bands and a whole bunch of generic metalcore. I have yet to go to a gig of any of the death/prog/power/whatever metal bands I actually do want to see.
For how can I give the King his place of worth above all else
