I want to go see megadeth in gigantour in may (my first concert ) , but after reading some threads about moshing and that kind of **** i'm getting a little scared...

I'm 12 and a half years old, and not very tall (like 5'1 or 5'2), average weight for my age. I dont know if I can handle it... any suggestions? should i just not go?

Just get really big. I'm about 5'9" and rather skinny and I get thrown around at local shows so I don't know how I'll last at Gigantour.

Just stay out of it. It shouldn't be too hard.
You may have a 10 x 10 stack of marshalls and i may only have one, but mine goes to 11.... Beat that

yeah, i am fast. i wanted to bust you. I think you should eat a bunch and work out. Or you can just stay towards the back. If you want really close, just crowd surf out when it gets bad.

And look at his sig:

either way. it's not to bad of a situation. just be aware of where you are and what's going on around you, be safe, and enjoy the show. i was at the first year of gigantour, and it was pretty sick.
#11

im 18 and only 5 foot 10 ......... 155lbs i get killed at Queens of the stoneage and nine inch nails concerts....

its safe to go cause you like KISS
so the kiss army will back you up and hold you on their shoulders
Ted: [Whispering to Bill] Your stepmom is cute.
Bill: Shut up, Ted.
Ted: Remember when she was a senior and we were freshmen?
Bill: Shut up, Ted!
#18
props to you for liking KISS though, it seems theres like me and 2 or 3 other people on here that love them

your still 12 and a half
and you cant lie to us by saying you missed typing twelve and a half with 13

either way
if you go to gigantour, prepare to get ****ed up if you go in the pit
otherwise, stay off to the sides, its really simple
Vikings? What Vikings? We are but poor, simple farmers. The village was burning when we got here, and the people must have slain themselves.
#22
Can kids under 18 even get in, man that is a bummer for guys like me who will feel I have to watch out for the kids. I hope it's only 18 and up.

I don't live close to any major cities so I never get to go to huge shows, but when the occasional tour comes up the coast I'm able to handle myself in a pit fairly easily. I'm 5'8" and 143lbs and usually the floor clears as soon as I start dancing.

EDIT: inb4 jokes about how I must be **** or whatever

DOUBLEDIT: It could also because I'm shirtless and I sweat like a freak.
#26
dude just go dont be a little pussy i was scared at my first concert (parkway drive) and i was only 13 but if you fall they pick you up.

unless they're douche bags.

trust me theres nothing better than going all out crazy in a mosh pit

I'm just gonna say now I hate seeing young kids at shows.

It's great if you love the music already but stay the **** out of the pit.

no sir, you suck.

not only do you suck at lying (HAHA spelled it right) but you also believe your Squier is a good guitar and you like KISS, not to mention that you're still underage.

don't start a flamefest unless you can make it out alive


(by the way, a 15W Frontman [or G, if that's what you call it] also sucks. get a life, get out of the pit)
UG POKER!

TL;DR: Saw a girl at Wal-Mart, she started feeling me up, I jizzed in my pants.

Shit, I'm so pathetic.

[quote="'[BurnTheDusk"]']I agree, tone does sound better the closer your genitals are to the ground.

Crabcore?

UNACCEPTABLE

Just avoid the pits. I went to my first show alone when I was 13, absolutely no trouble because I just avoided the pits.
Gear:
Fender Standard HSS Strat w/ Tone Zone bridge
ESP Ltd EC-1k Black cherry
Carvin DC127 blackburst with Bareknuckle Warpigs
Peavey 6505+

there's a very simple solution to all of this. stand at the back.
my name is matt. you can call me that if you like.
#33
It's possible to go to concerts without being in the mosh pit. In fact, it's possible to be near the stage without being in a mosh pit. I've done so on several occasions.

Which doesn't take away from my opinion that people who mosh are fucking assholes and are the worst part about metal concerts.

It's not as ZOMG HARDKOR as people play it up to be.

Just try it. If you don't like it, stand off to the side.

Hey Hey Hey, Dimebag liked kiss and it was because of Ace Freely ( I think thats how you spell it) that he started playing guitar. Though I hate kiss personally, especially Gene Simmons.
