The Concert Thread

I'm assuming the Judas Priest shows must be pushed back from September? Are their still tickets available for their tour? I'd love to go but it would be tough with work and other commitments for me at the moment.

My Megadeth concert was cancelled last week. I was kinda holding out hope because this was the first show I've ever been able to actually purchase a front row ticket for, rather than stand in line and pray that I get on the barrier. I have no concerts lined up in my future. Sad. However, I am pretty glad I got two shows in this year, even if it was the same band twice. In retrospect, I am also more satisfied with my 2019 considering what's going on now.

I am considering going to the Deftones/Gojira in Seattle for September of 2021. I'm gonna wait a bit before I make a decision. Probably next year honestly.

The last concert I visited was Fish a few years ago. He played Clutching At Straws in its entirely.
Due to a light tinnitus I'm not going that much to concerts anymore though.

My last concert was Mastodon at the Brixton Academy in December 2017 so it's been a few years for me now too. I've seen them live a few times and this was a excellent show. Unfortunately life kind of gets in the way of going to more shows with me (being a single dad to two young girls doesn't help either!)

Know what you mean, I have 2 sons (9 and 11) and they're not into metal at all.
Although the youngest likes Green Day and Three Days Grace. maybe there's hope...

Green Day and similar bands were what I liked before I heard Maiden for the first time at about the age of 10 so I'd definitely say there is hope!

My girls are 4 and 2 so are way too young for loud rock concerts right now. I feel like children are hardwired not to like the same music as their parents but having said that the last time I went to see Maiden there were a lot of families with fairly young children dressed out in the t-shirts and everything.

Lined up for Faith No More, Iron Maiden and Supergrass in May 20 but all cancelled/postponed due to Covid :(

FNM rescheduled for Feb 21 (remains to be seen), Supergrass postponed (unknown), Iron Maiden refunded (as many would know).

Last concert was Graveyard Feb 20 then Opeth before that Dec 19...getting itchy feet!

One of these days I might actually see Priest again. Seriously, though, how many veteran bands are going to fold before all this is over?

I'm honestly less worried about the veteran bands and more worried about the low-to-mid tier acts that really rely on consistent touring to make ends meet. I'm still absolutely devastated by Anathema's call for an indefinite hiatus and hope more announcements like that don't come down the fold.

With the UK looking on track to remove all social distancing legislation by the 21st of June my current line up is looking like this:

11-15th Aug - Bloodstock Open Air
29th Aug - Eagles - Wembley Stadium, London
12th Oct - Genesis - O2 Arena, London
19th Oct - Creeping Death/Venom Prison- Mama Roux, Birmingham

2022
9th Apr - Jeff Wayne's The War of the Worlds - O2 Arena, London
22nd Apr - Nick Mason's Saucerful of Secrets - Symphony Hall, Birmingham

If everything does go to plan here, I can see myself filling my calendar with quite a lot come the end of the year. Shame my planned Maiden trip to Gothenburg won't happen though :(

No Graspop Metal Festival in 2021.
Tickets for the 2020 edition stay valid for 2022.
Not surprised about this decision though, but I guess some people still had high hopes it would happen.

On a related note, the Skunk Anansie show I had tickets for in June has been postponed to April 2022.

Current list of gigs (all have been postponed twice since I bought the tickets before the shit hit the fan):

The Waterboys 21/10/2021
Van der Graaf Generator 24/02/2022

Current Set of shows:
  • Def Leppard, Motley Crue, Poison, Joan Jett - September 2021
  • Roger Waters - September 2021
  • The Rolling Stones - TBA
Shows Cancelled :(
  • Sebastian Bach
  • Alice Cooper w/ Lita Ford

Honestly the only ones I'm super bummed about are Alice Cooper and The Stones, although Bach and Waters are high on my list for shows I wanted to see.
