I have been to a couple of festivals that I really enjoyed. Reggae on the river was one, in Northern California. I also enjoyed Ozzfest. I got to go a couple of years back. I saw the black sabbath reunion tour in '99 with pantera, that was great because i love both bands. But I think my all time favorite concert, is actually a tie, between Phish and Ziggy Marley. They were both really positive and uplifting, had a great time. In fact I think I'm overdue for another concert! What is your favorite concert/music festival you've attended? Or who would you most like to see in concert?

I love going to concerts. I've been to so many. I have only been to one festival before and it was when I was a kid and I don't really like the kind of music it was. As for my favorite regular concerts there are so many bands/artists that I loved seeing live. One of my favorite concerts was seeing The Dresden Dolls. They have such a cool vibe to their set and it was just one of the most entertaining shows I have ever been to. One of my favorite bands, Kill Hannah, is always fun to see live. I have seen them live 5 times and each time was so great. Everyone just dancing around and having a good time. I went to a tour that was Butch Walker, The Honorary Title and Rocket. It was great. Butch Walker is amazing live. He performs with every ounce of his body. And I love seeing The Academy Is... live. They have so much energy and William Beckett's voice sounds so good live (unlike some bands I've seen that are not very good live, even though their cd's are good). As for bands I haven't seen but want to, AFI is the band I want to see most but have never had the chance to. I hear so many good things about their live set.

Nice Kel, I will definitely have to check out some of the bands you mentioned. I haven't heard of most of them, but I love all different kinds of music. I really wanted to see slightly stoopid and snoop dogg on the blazed and confused tour this summer, but I'm almost 7 mos. pregnant, so I'm gonna have to miss this one.

I recently went concert crazy and have been to five in the last year. I have to say that the best concert I have been to was a Hanson Members Only Event. Only about 200 were allowed in and it was a very nice experience. They talked in between songs, making us laugh and showing us what its like to record songs for an album...then they released an EP of the songs they sang for the event. Afterwards we got to meet them and get group ohotos with them.

Mine would have to be "Gigantour" with Dream Theater and Megadeth as the headliners. I am a HUGE Dream theater fan and have also been a long time fan of Megadeth as well. Also incuded as my favorites from that show were Dry Kill Logic and Fear Factory. This was also the night I first heard of Symphony X, a progressive hard rock band similar to Dream theater. Very impressive show they had. I was suprised they were on the smaller stage, they really should have been on the main stage, GREAT band. They should have replaced Dillinger escape plan's lame set.

I went a lot of concerts, but never pasionate me. A lot of people, no space. Ugly, I prefer to stay home and listened than staying there and arguing with others

I haven't really been to very many concerts. I've seen Evanescence, Puddle of Mudd, Saving Abel, Alice Cooper, Dr. Hook, and Miyavi, that I can remember right off hand. Miyavi was by all means my favorite. He's my favorite musician ever. A genius with a guitar. His concert was held at Anime Matsuri, an anime convention in Houston earlier this year. I was stuck way in the back, where I wouldn't have been able to see at all if not for the large monitors, and I was feeling sick, but I still wouldn't trade the experience for anything. I'm hoping to go and see him again in Mexico in October. ^_^
