I saw KsE live for my first show who they playing with cause it probably won't be so crazy just watch out

There will probably be some amount of drunken people (depending on if they serve alcohol), but I don't know how to pit would be, since I've never been to a Killswitch concert. If the pit does open up though, just back up or move off to the side so you get out of the way. Usually people won't drag you in or get you involved if you don't want to be (unless they're assholes), so you really won't have much to worry about.

Edit: And make sure to keep an eye on your brother too, but that's pretty much common sense.

Try to get up front. You get to enjoy the show and maybe get in some pictures.

if you want to stay out of the pit and not get into any moshing ( ngood idea with the younger brother there) stay further to the back or right side of the stage, otherwise, just enjoy the show, and stay out of peoples way, there will be some serious moshings at a KSE show, and I know Kitchener there's some rowdy bastards around there. Have a great time!!!!
#11
They're not my favorite but they are amazing live, especially Howard.

The mosh pits are usually in the middle of the room. If you stay towards the edges of the room, you usually won't have to worry about it, however, sometimes people will try to start one where you're at. If you don't want to mosh, then you should probably move somewhere else.

One thing to really watch out for, they might have everyone in the room divide down the middle, and run into each other and hug.

Saw killswitch in Detroit for my first show, was amazing. Was a decent amount of pits, and there was also a circle pit, but other then that, theres nothing crazy. Keep your brother close and enjoy the show.

They were my first concert too! It'll be pretty obvious where the mosh pit is, so as long as you stay clear of it your fine. (I was in the front row for half the show so I didnt have to worry about that )

Well, TS, it looks like you have some bulking up to do. Otherwise, the mosh pit will kill you.

Yes. Just Yes.


My first concert was with 4 friends, so it wasnt that bad. However, we were outside in an ampitheater, so it'll be a totally different experience indoors. We had lawn seats, and there was one mosh pit that decided to start right beside us , the air was FILLED with smoke, and there were drunken retards just about everywhere.


Granted, it was a Seether/Three Days Grace/Skillet/Breaking Benjamin show

tips: killswitch aren't metal.


Hmm, they sound pretty metal to me. Not uber hardcore or thrashy or what have you, but they ARE a type of metal. Damn musical elitists. You = Fail!

Ok, TS, there WILL be pitting and moshing. Doesn't matter what concert you go to. I know, bunch of retards, I like going for the music as well and the pitting ruins it for me. There will be drunks too. Your best bet is get your little brother and force your way to the front and hang on to the rail for dear life. Or hang out in the back where the pit is mellower. Most of all just take care of him.

My first concert was when i was about when i was 9, I went to go see Judas priest and Overkill ( ) a few days later. After almost 7 years of me going to shows, the only advice i can really give you is if you'r a twig try to avoid being right next to a mosh, some people will be kicking all over pretending they are fighting invisible ninjas and sometimes it can get ugly.

Going right upfront is an amazing feeling especially if you'r so into it but pay attention to the crowd surfers that are going you'r direction, you'll get kicked in the head, slammed on/etc.
Last month i went to a shadows fall show and i was upfront and all of a sudden a fat chick slams on me, 300 pounds on me and im below 150 so..it was not an amazing feeling. Needles to say, the singer almost slapped me across the face while he was headbanging with his 1 mile long dreads.

Yea man, watch ur brother cuz he will prolly get smashed if he goes into THE PIT... *shifts eyes* anyways i just find it can depend on the venue and the area and espcally the band and just to let u know ahead of time theres always usually alot of people smoking joints or something.. l\at every concert i have been at theres always people smoking pot

my first concert was Bone Thugs N Harmony... no moshing, just alota weed. and the craziest concert I've been to is family values tour. much moshing, weed, drunks, and setting fire to things. hard to decide between paying attention to who was on stage or the alot of red necks trying to burn the place down

ehh, you'll be fine. At a killswitch show, It'll be like moshing w/ a bunch of fluffy bunnies. Make sure to buy one of those child leashes for your son. Don't want him dying under your watch.

EXACTLY what I was going to say/

Hell, I was moshing at ozzfest when I was 13 (this was with huge ass dudes over rocky cement pavement). It's not dangerous at all if the people in the pit aren't dicks.
