I've been to two Jr. concerts, one in Anderson, one in Marion...yes, Marion.

I'm a big fan, but the concerts were very...average. Lots of mumbling, ad-libbing, and a general "how quick can we get this over with" type of feeling from him and the audience.

Performers are people so they have their days, too. I've got a buddy that's seen Hank Jr. numerous times and says his all-time fave and all-time worst concerts were Hank Jr.

sidenote - had a girl show me a picture of a John Deere tattoo on her nether regions at one of those concerts. Long story.

CÚline Dion with my ex in Vegas. I was coming down with the flu at the time too (most of the 3 day trip was spent in my hotel room).

The ONLY consolation was the tickets were free.

Saw ZZ top and new version of Skynyrd in the early 2000's that was rushed and no emotion bland "get the paycheck" feel. It was at the N. Charleston Coliseum. Skynyrd played a bunch of medley's of the most famous songs. That just made it awful. Would rather here one full song the a medley of 3.

Somebody took me and paid for the tickets so that made it bearable.

Saw Bad Company and Damn Yankees (opening act) at the King Street Theater in Charleston in the early 1990's. Great show, but it was summer and the building had no A/C!! I was sweating my a$$ off as I jammed to great tunes. My (ex) wife was absolutely miserable and sat the entire show.

5000+ screaming fans in 90+ degree heat for 3 hours... Wow.

I saw Alabama at a casino in Michigan last year. The show itself was good, the band members were good entertainers for the most part. The problem was that the average age of the audience members was probably 78 years old. These younger girls(early 30's) several rows up were on their feet dancing and waving their arms having a good time and this old lady went up and told them to sit down. I asked my wife if she wanted me to buy her a beer, and an old lady turned around and very bluntly asked me to stop talking. After about four songs, the girls a few rows up got up dancing again, and were promptly met by the old lady and two security guards and escorted out of the show. I felt like I was at the ballet or opera or even in a movie theater. No talking, no standing, no dancing. We just had to sit there and listen. I did see some people tapping their toes, which I took to be their form of silent, defiant protest of the archaic footloosean ideology.

Exactly. It was definitely a great show if you're really into them, and I wasn't. So yes, I should qualify that one as a personal taste issue.



The other two I mentioned were more generally sucky

RATT in Columbia it was either 1987 or '88. They sucked so bad that the next year I was given free tickets for their concert and I threw them away. They were so doped up it wasn't funny.
2nd place was megadeath in charlotte (Dio was headliner, awesome by the way, and opener was Savatage) Megadeath was booed off the stage.

He was good but Steve Perry is and always will be the voice of Journey. I wish Gregg Rolie would have stuck around a little longer. Feeling that Way/Anytime is one of their best songs.

Default Re: Worst Concert

I've seen a ton of good ones but none if any I'd say were outright bad. I did see Clapton once and all he did was blues stuff. None of my favorites. The music was still good, but not very exciting. Just saw ZZ top a couple weeks ago and they were still very good. Sounded just like they did when I saw them 30 yrs ago. Almost too good so I'm not sure if they were actually playing or singing... Regardless, they rocked. Also, as someone mentioned above Hank Jr. Back in the mid to late 80s he was basically too drunk to stand. Sat in a rocking chair. Cussed, mumbled and pretty much sounded like a distant cousin to Ozzy.

Truly surprised about Megadeth. I've not seen them but I guess everyone has a bad night.

I agree on Ratt, not great but they only had 2 or 3 songs I liked anyway and that singing style wasn't conducive to many good live shows. Saw them with Poison. Ratt Poison tour in '87

Default Worst Concert

Not sure I have seen any truely bad ones. But just a few that I expected more of compared to what I expected

U2 in Death a valley around '97. I had seen them on their prior tour at the the Brice and they rocked that show. Just was not as impressed at Death Valley. Maybe it was the stench.

Paul McCartney at the Brice. Overall a good show that I enjoyed. It was just a bit much at the end when he did the neverending sing-a-long to Hey Jude at the end. It went on for like 15 minutes.

If the Aerosmith show the OP was talking about was the Draw the Line tour I was there. They were bad, but not as bad as the Champagne Jam where they were fighting on stage just before their break-up. The Draw the Line tour had Frank Marino and Mahogany Rush as the opening act and they were worth the price of admission by themselves.
And I saw Johnny Winter at Center Stage in Atlanta with Brother Cane opening and he was great. I guess everybody has a bad night every now and then.
I haven't seen any real dud shows where all the bands were bad, but I have seen some where I was disappointed in one of the bands. I saw the Bad Company/Damn Yankees show and was not impressed with Bad Company. Probably the worst though was The Stampeders opening for Skynerd and Warrant opening for Motley Crue.
