    The worst time I ever had at a concert was sitting through Poison, Warrant, and Trixter. :icon_eek: :icon_eek:

    This girl I was dating at the time bought tickets and her friend bailed on her. So I agreed to go as a favor for her.

    It was awesome. I saw them at a theater in DC that housed about 2,500. They reenacted a lot from the movie and the music sounded great.
    What really was amazing was the the crowd was all aging hippys. You really would have believed they were a band that's been around since the 60s.

    I was so furious that I didn't get to see Venom before they were banned from America.

    For those of you that don't know the story... The singer said "kill yourself for Venom" at a show in LA and apparently, three kids did it. They were suppose to do a national tour after that show but now they aren't allowed to play in America (until 10 years after that event).

    Was that because of the bands or just a bad show?

    One of the worst shows I saw was when Skid Row opened for KISS & Ted Nugent.
    Snake Sabo had just broken his leg and their new "lead screamer" managed to ruin 18 & life.

    I never realized that it was this many bands that I was exposed to.

    Anybody ever seen a concert break out into a riot?
    I have.

    SLAYER at the Warner Theater in DC, 88...
    The seats were bolted into the ground. As soon as the guitars to "Reign in Blood" began, the place when nuts. People bum rushed the stage and you could hear the seats getting crushed. People were literally kicking the seats out of the ground and throwing them to the side as the mosh pits grew.

    PUBLIC ENEMY at the Spectrum in Philadelphia, 90...
    Cars smashed and fires in the parking lot after the show.

    JANE'S ADDICTION at the Tower Theater in Philadelphia, 91...
    The band only did six songs so the crowd flipped their tour bus over. Singer, Perry Ferrel mentioned on a local radio show the next day "the crowd wasn't into it and neither were we... I'm not into fake orgasms, so I left."

    RED HOT CHILI PEPPERS at Irwin Theater in Philadelphia, 91...
    Same thing happened as the Slayer concert only worse. Security completely lost control so they called the police. Clubbing, arrests, and ambulances.

    HOUSE OF PAIN at Hammerjack's in Baltimore, 93...
    The place has a capacity of 2,000 and about 10 bars. The show never happened as the singer incited a riot. He got on stage and said "the bouncers jumped one of the roadies. You won't get your money back, so bum rush the stage and get your money's worth."
    Broken glass, people running out with cash registers and bottles of liquor, ambulances, arrests... IT WAS BAD!!!

    WHITE ZOMBIE at Hammerjack's in Baltimore, 93...
    If a sold out club with a capacity of 2,000 wasn't enough... they over sold. Both floors were beyond packed and there were people outside with tickets that couldn't get in.
    The fire department would not allow them to start the show. So they had to announce "we are unable to start the show unless some people will volenterily leave." Needless to say... that didn't sit very well. :no:
