I don't think I've heard of half of those music types.

I'm not averse to traveling pretty far for a show, so long as my schedule allows it. I live in New Jersey, and I've traveled to Connecticut and Virginia for shows before.

I forget if you like Jim Gaffigan, but he is going to be in Montclair in January.

Wow, this really made me think about how much gas I've spent going to concerts in New York (from DC).

I've always wondered -- do you find it harder to get good seats at shows in New York versus smaller cities? I like to tell myself that when people actually COME to Fargo, I can see them better than if I was at Madison Square Gardens or even Ruth Eckerd Hall (Tampa), but I wonder if I'm deluding myself. (Yay Fargo...)

I dunno, when I go to New York, it's usually because I can't see them anywhere else, so they have a kind of limited audience anyways. Since I'm usually only there for the show, I have a lot of time to sit around and queue up for the things, so I usually get pretty good seats/places on the floor.

I've never gone to a show where it's been reserved seating, though.

hate stadium shows. what's the point?
22nd-Dec-2009 09:59 pm (UTC)
I do not understand most of those genres. Can't we avoid overcomplicating labeling this stuff and just enjoy it?
22nd-Dec-2009 10:20 pm (UTC)
I don't go to concerts because I don't like hearing my favorite singers live. I'm wildly change-averse, so I hate that the songs sound different from what I'm used to hearing on the CD. Weird quirk of mine.

So far the farthest I've traveled for a concert is to Denver or Phoenix (whichever is furthest from Salt Lake), but my sister and I seriously considered flying to London when Michael Jackson announced his shows there.

You left out classical music in concert halls.

First question: for me the venue is pretty much irrelevant. If I like the artist, I'll go to a slaughterhouse to hear them. Second question: I once drove over ten hours (with a group of friends) to hear a group we all loved. At the time I was living in western Canada, and we drove all the way to Eau Claire, Wisconsin to hear this group. Now that's fandom.

I ended up in tears and left early from a Family Values concert because of the fucking ass shrill screaming woman behind me killing off any age 60+ hearing I might have. I have not been to a large venue (concert hall is my limit) since precisely to avoid this. If I hadn't made the (right) decision to just leave, I'm 99% certain I would have turned around and screamed at her and beaten her, I was so miserable.

I've traveled maybe 600 - 700 miles for a concert. That was only once. I've traveled about five hours for concerts three different times this year.

I don't know if I prefer stadium shows, but I prefer reserved seating. I don't like getting shoved and pushed around and having tall people steal my good spots by shoving me out of the way. I like to be close enough to see the band, though. At once concert I went to, we had sixth row seats and that was awesome. At another, we had 9th row, and it wasn't that great, but still not bad.
