Just remembered this story and decided I'd share with you guys.

Anyway, a couple of weeks ago my roommate and I wen't to a concert. Texas in July (who actually came and slept/showered/hung out at my place beforehand), Volumes, Ghost Inside, and The Devil Wears Prada were playing in ATL. Not a mega huge fan of any of these bands, but my bro here loves them and I enjoy concerts and the genre so I decided I'd go.

We got there early and were probably fist 3 percent of people let in so naturally we landed front row spots. We were situated about three meters to the right of center stage. We had been waiting for maybe 45 minutes and it was getting pretty crowded when I noticed something... Somehow, for some unknown reason, a mentally ******ed guy in a wheelchair had pushed past the crowd and landed a spot directly behind us. WTF. Now normally, this wouldn't affect me apart for the fact that he was swinging his head around like a freaking nun-chuck (before music was being played) and his wheelchair made it impossible to move around. Everyone around the area was visibly nervous because he was being unpredictable, and no one wants to accidentally hurt a disabled kid by dancing around in close proximity to his wheelchair.

As the opening band played, it was hard to really get into the music or relax, and we eventually ended up moving more toward the middle of the crowd and giving up our front row seats.

I just have so many questions. This guy was obviously not here on his own. Who in their right mind would bring a mentally disabled person to a event like this, much less shove them into the middle of the crowd? He was sitting in a wheelchair and everyone else was standing so he wouldn't have even been able to see the stage!

Once, during the opening act, a guy was crowd surfing and fell into him because there was such a large gap where he was because of the wheelchair. The bouncer got all mad, but there was really nothing the guy could have done. I just don't think it was safe or responsible. Seriously, if you're going to use a mentally ******ed guy to get to the front of the crowd, you got a lot of nerve.

you should've have said at the end "what are your weird concert experiences?" or something of that matter.


Nobody asked you to share about the time that Billie Joe winked at you.

he never winked at me, no real famous musicians ever have. I've gone to about 7 shows so I don't have many experiences let alone weird ones.

did I say that correctly? I feel like I didn't but I have no idea how it should be said.

captainsnazz, I understand your point, but it's like getting on a plane and having to sit next to a mentally *ahem* dissabled person for 4 hours while he is flailing around wildly the whole time.

Yea, he's a person and deserves equal treatment, but tell me that wouldn't get on your nerves.

I went to a Van Halen concert once where the opening act was Cool and The Gang. It was painful. They kept saying "are you ready to rock?" and "let's dance". There were approximately 3 people dancing in the building. I felt so bad for them because I can't imagine playing for a whole arena that hates your band. That would be awful.

Once I was watching a local cover band (so, not really a concert) and there was this old couple there in their mid to late sixties. All night long the wife was giving him lap dances and shaking her "ass" around. I say "ass" because I have never seen an ass as flat as hers. She was like Skeletor. Anyway, as they got progressively more wasted, the dancing got way nastier. Culminating in the husband flat on his back on the dance floor with the wife full on - crotch to mouth - face sitting. It was nasty.

Naturally if she'd been hot I wouldn't have minded.

I don't want to see old people simulating the nasty.
Once you look old, you should stop having sex unless you're sealed away from the rest of the world in a special "Geriatric Sex Chamber" so as to prevent young attractive people from seeing or hearing any of that.

How the hell did he get there? In Finland we have a different spot for wheelchairs and they can't get in to the standing area. And you have to pass like 3-4 security guards on the way to the front row, every single one yelling at you not to run.

I bet the baby wasn't even that cute.

Oh, and baconm'n, I'd totally buy Van Halen tickets just to see Kool and the Gang.

But seriously, add KC and the Sunshine Band and that's a dream bill right thar.

Yeah, but it's one of those things where even if it's done well, it's still fucking stupid.

Saw Van Halen with Kool and The Gang in Vancouver; I love VH but KatG definitely put on the better show.

I went to see Rammstein and a mosh pit pushed me into a short bald bearded man. He grabbed me by the neck and threw me on the ground.

EDIT: Maybe we should all tell gig stories in the doge format
