Huh. While interesting and I am glad that you are in a location that allows you to see so many bands, I cannot help but say that I don't know if I'd pay to see too many of them. Rob Zombie (perhaps), Anthrax (I have seen a bunch of times and never thought that they were more than a warmup / over-hyped cover band...Scott Ian playing this one?), Megadeth (I have seen numerous times and can't say that I like their / his? new material...after all, one man show), Motorhead (again, seen countless times...always solid and good) and Slayer (again, seen countless times and they don't inspire me). Certainly nothing new.
The rest? Well, glad that you want and are able to see them. Call me old. We'll leave it at that. Were they in my backyard, my opinion might change. No matter what, I still await your reviews. Cheers. [Show/Hide Quoted Message](Quoting Message by Budred from Monday, April 16, 2012 6:22:02 PM)
...the last two summers have been the best ever for me as far as how many bands that I was
lucky enough to see live. That can't keep up nor do I want it to. Last year was a quest to top the previous
year and it would be too costly to try that every year. I still plan on seeing some shows though.
4/17 Nothing and Tenafly Viper (both MRH vocalists fronting their own bands) (Cleveland)
4/22 Soulfly (Pittsburgh)
5/17 Mushroomhead (Pittsburgh)
5/20 Rock on the Range (Columbus) (only going one day this year)
Rob Zombie / Marilyn Manson / Megadeth / Anthrax / Mastodon / Volbeat / The Darkness (time to hit concession stand)
Down / Escape The Fate / Lacuna Coil / Black Stone Cherry / Attack Attack / Trivium / Redlight King / James Durbin /
Aranda / 12 Stones / Soil / Eye To Adam / Ghosts Of August
7/ 28 Mayhem Festival (Burgettstown, Pa.)
Slipknot / Slayer / Anthrax / Motorhead / Whitechapel / As I Lay Dying (others)
....these are what I have tickets for. I'll probably get to about three or four more so it should still be a cool summer. Now I just hope
Five Finger Death Punch comes around. I love their new album and I thought they kicked ass the last time I saw them so I'm
thinking they will be the band to see this summer. What sucks is that they are at Rock on the Range on Saturday but the rest of the
line-up is so weak I'm passing.
@Vail ...I'm not expecting change I just needed to chill. (more positive posts)(hopefully)(LOL)
