Default Worst Concert

Sorry if this has been done before but I would like to hear about some of your worst concert experiences when the band sucked. I'll start with a few-

Aerosmith Late 70's Carolina Coliseum- Steven Tyler was wasted, sound was God-awful, they played fro like 70-80 minutes and split. No encores, no nothing. Terrible.

Pearl Jam Early 2000's Greenville- Don't remember which tour this was but PJ was terrible that night. Sound was awful. Could not differentiate from one song to the next. Left 2/3 of the way in, couldn't take it any more.

The Cars Late 70's Carolina Coliseum- Most boring concert I have ever seen. Not one member of this band had any stage presence whatsoever. ZZZZZZZZZZ

Would love to hear some of yours.

George Jones and Hank Williams Jr. George opened and Hank followed. Not so much because of the performances but mostly because the disrespect the different fan bases showed to one another (most Hanks fans disdain for the Jones fans but enough from both sides really showed their @$$#$)). It really was ugly and the Jones fans began to leave and Hank took offence and called them out in an unprofessional manner. It was just a bad pairing; like having Lawrence Welk opening for Black Sabbath.

David Allan Coe - Hard to complain about a free concert but saw him two years ago at his bar in Daytona during bike week. Absolutely terrible. Talked about all the great songs he wrote for other people and then consolidated his few popular songs into one 2 min mash up.

Jessica Simpson and Rascal Flatts - Let gf at time talk me in to seeing this amazing combo in Charleston probably 12 years ago. Not my kind of music, most boring concert atmosphere I have ever seen.

Both Garth Brooks shows that I've been to. For starters, I'm just not a fan of his music. A couple of songs are OK, but not enough to make me want to go to a show. I just went because my wife and I have a deal that if she goes to Pearl Jam shows with me, I'll go to Garth shows with her. Secondly, the shows were about a year and a half apart and it was the same exact set list, down to all of the in between song comments. Kind of makes me mad knowing I spent an ungodly amount of money for the second show just to get a repeat performance.

I don't think this is what you intended but many many years ago my parents drug, pulled, drove, forced me to a gospel quartet event a the old Greenville Memorial Auditorium. Worst music event ever!

Meat Loaf opening for the Allman Brothers. Someone needs to put that guy out of our misery.

The Flaming Lips in Athens, GA. Biggest waste of time in my life.

Dave Matthews Band at the something-something pavilion in Virginia. I wanted to stab my ears with pencils. He might even be worse than Meat Loaf. Maybe he is the Meat Loaf of the new generation. Disgusting. They played the song "Don't Drink the Water" and I wanted to smash my face through a plate glass window.

Win tickets to Pink opening for Lenny Kravitz here in San Antonio. Pink surprisingly rocked it, Lenny didn't want to be there.

I haven't been to a bad concert probably because I only shell out the bucks to see shows by my favorite artists. The least impressive show I have seen was Elvis Costello at the Fox in Atlanta. Costello was sick so his voice was off. However, he gave us a full show including an encore, so I cannot consider it a bad concert.

Default Re: Worst Concert

I haven't been to very many concerts over the years but three that stand out in a not so good way:

Allman Brothers in 1989 or so - went because my friend liked them and the tickets were pretty cheap, and not that they were bad per se, but every...single...song turned into a 20 minute jam that sounded (to me) just like the previous 20 minute jam. On the plus side, they played for over 3 hours. On the down side, they played for over 3 hours.


Petra in 1992 - pretty good show overall, but by far the lamest drum solo I've ever experienced. I played drums briefly in college and right after and I sucked and I could have done a better job.


Foreigner in 1999 - Lou Gramm, bless his heart, had pretty much decimated his voice by then, but that didn't stop him from trying. It should have. By contrast, Journey was the headliner and they had a new young guy (different new young guy than the one with them now) who sounded just like Steve Perry and had the energy to pull it off.

That was probably the Steve Perry guy who Steve Perry said sounded better than Steve Perry.

This.

My "least impressive" would be a Johnny Winters concert that I went to in Greenville
in 1975. I loved his music and had seen him a year earlier along with the Allman
Brothers and enjoyed the show there. Not sure what the problem was with this show
though. Sound wasn't nearly as good, and the opening act was God Awful. I had met
a girl there for a first date, and she brought a friend of hers (and her boyfriend).
Beside the fact that her friend, and her friend's boyfriend were both airheads and
acted like they were less than 10 years old, the show wasn't that great and it was a
bad night for Johnny Winters so that one didn't make my List of best Concerts.

I guess I can see an ABB concert being being a bit much if you're not into them. Not being into that sound can definitely make it all blend together. I personally love 3 hours of 20 min jams

I haven't really ever been to a concert that I would consider "bad", but I guess Moon Taxi a few years ago in 5 Points for St. Patty's Day wasn't really that enjoyable. It was super crowded and everyone was being pushy. I also was not nearly as inebriated as a should have been...
