But my dad has gone to 6 Judas Priest concerts not mention all the other concerts he's gone to.IT'S NOT FAIR MAN TOTALLY UNCOOL!!!!I WANNA GO TO ONE!!!GRRRRR!!!!X{ mad.gif sad.gif dry.gif

I've been in more concerts than I've been to them, really. I've lost count of the ones I've been in (if those ones count as the ones I go to, since I still have to show up for them), and I think I have only gone to two actual concerts with vocalists (Priscilla Chan and Josh Groban), and one instrumental concert for a music festival.
Carnal Malefactor
A lot. At least 100. But I've never been to an outdoor concert... probably because there aren't any good ones in North America.
JudasPriest1
Well we've got the Backyard so we have some pretty good places to go to. Not to mention the Lazona Rosa which I can't remember if theyr'e out doors or not but it's fun there and my parents saw Dio there.
Zarpia
I've just been in one, it was a 3 doors down concert, the funny thing was that they have just 1 tickect to spare and they did find anyone (of the're friends) to go whit them so i guess i fot lucky coz i really like 3 doors down.
Envy's lil' miniskirt
I've been to so many I've lost count. The last one I went too was The Pillows. Awesome show!
Electrastar
A big fat 0. But come November, that's all going to change because I'm going to see U2 in concert in Montreal. I can't wait biggrin.gif

luuucky. XP if i could have gone, i would have gone. (SF! only an hour away!) my parents have this rule where i'm not allowed to go to any concerts before i go to college, so i haven't gone to any. my friends are going to the Maroon 5 concert here tomorrow, so i'm having them bring back a t-shirt for me like they did at last year's Maroon 5 concert.

Prinz_Zoisit
in my life-time i went to:
1. Carmina Burana(1x)
2. some symphony from Mendelssohn(1x)
3. Christmas Oratorium(3x)
4. Johannes Passion(2x)
Quistis88
Prinz's list sounds interesting. biggrin.gif And it reminds me of the concert I went to that I missed naming, which was Handel's Messiah last December.
edsgirl
I've probably been to over 60-70 concerts. Some of them are kinda fuzzy, because I had a little too much beer at them. Most of the ones I go to are outdoor, which is good for summer concerts. Lots of hot sweaty guys enjoying ....... Whoops got off track a little!
infatuation_junkie
Been 'in' more then I can count, but I think I'm ranging an average of two a week. I've been 'to' ... maybe 6ish... Not sure. I like preforming more then going.. Unless it's a mosh, then I crowd dive. Thats always fun.

NightMistress

Backstreet Boys - 5 shows (don't worry, I've long seen the light since then)
Earth Wind and Fire - (dad made me, but I ended up liking it and it helps that they play their own instruments)
Prince Musicology - Kick-ass show. He was here 3 nights and I wish I went to all 3. sad.gif

So all in all that's about 9 shows.

Hrmm, the most recent concert I was lucky enough to go to was Dear Friends, Music from Final Fantasy.
The price was a bit steep (Thirty-two dollars for upper balacony seats?! blink.gif), but it was well worth it. biggrin.gif

Edit- As for the number of concerts I've been to, that would be about two three. Very rarley do I go to concerts as there's hardly any around here worth seeing. XD

YOU WERE THERE!?

I would have been willing to fly over there and pay a tiny fortune, if required. I would've done anything to go. Well, almost anything. biggrin.gif

Yup, Aya and I drove down to Hartford, CT just to go see it. It was phenomenal and ever piece was very well chosen. The tempo was a bit fast when they preformed One Winged Angel, but it was still amazing. I should've let you know beforehand Quis so that you could've gone with us.
Quistis88
Haha, thanks anyway. Here's hoping Nobuo Uematsu will choose to have a concert in Canada some time. I also hear that the Black Mages might be touring North America.

*sigh*

As for me, I've never been to any concerts/recitals...

Wait, does performing count? biggrin.gif??? LOLZ!
definingmind
@Quis: Yeah! At the concert they mentioned something about trying to get the Black Mages over here! Hopefully they'll go through with it.

@Bling: heehee! You're too cute hon! *kiss* Umm, I think it would, since you have to be there in order to perform.
Maes-Hughes

Geez, what do you do for fun? laugh.gif
Toby-Chan
Four. The last one was Spoon, a year ago. The most enjoyable of all of them, imo. If only the other attendees weren't such squares.

I haven't really been into any bands lately, so concerts don't interest me too much.


(I'm not sure if informal bluegrass concerts and whatnot count, since my mom has dragged me to quite a few of those. And her concerts; she's a childrens' musician and has a duo with a friend. I've seen more of her concerts than I could hope to count.)

When I was in High School I was going to go see Rammstein at the Staples Center in Cali, but my mother said no because she saw a video on tv for them and didn't like what she saw. sleep.gif

when I was living by myself for a few years in NH I couldn't afford to go to concerts. The poor collage student was no joke lol. Now I just don't have time. Now that I'm married I can't just rush out and spend money on concert tickets.
