|ticket memory box|
This is something I need to do. Currently my ticket memory box is this:
I keep my tickets... to everything. Hockey games, movies, concerts, and anything else I think is sentimental.
Danny is so used to it he just hands me his movie ticket once we're in the theatre. I don't know why I keep them but I do.
But thinking about this box got me to thinking about all the concerts I've seen over the years (to give you a good idea most of these were seen between the ages of 19 and 22).
Elton John - my first concert
Queens of the Stone Age - I've seen them 3 times and they never disappoint.
Our Lady Peace
Thornley - twice. He puts on a great show
Default - twice
City and Colour - twice
The Vines with Jet - I went because Jet was opening and they were great! The lead singer of the Vines quit about 3 or 4 songs in and we chanted for Jet to do an encore
Tea Party - worst concert EVER! I actually left the show early.
Sevendust with Non Point and Wicked Wisdom - Wicked Wisdom was better than I thought they'd be and Non Point stole the show.
Queen with Paul Rodgers - Paul Rodgers is no Freddy Mercury
Theory of a Deadman - another disappointing concert
Nickelback- twice; they put on a good show.
Seether, 30 Seconds to Mars (Jared Leto is an ASS! If you diss the city you're playing in expect to be booed. Then when we boo you don't finger us.), Three Days Grace, and Kings of Leon all opened for Nickelback.
State of Shock
A Sheep at the Wheel* - 3 times
BSB - yes, I was one of "those" girls.
Finger Eleven - twice
Jimmy Eat World
Kids These Days*
Vincent Black Shadow*
System of a Down with The Mars Volta - I was pretty excited to see The Mars Volta but it was a let down. They played for an hour and played maybe 3 or 4 songs. They basically jammed the entire set.
Elevation : U2 cover Band
* Indie bands
Tonight I get to add another band to that list: Metallica. I've never seen them before (where as Danny has seen them multiple times) and even though I'm not a "fan" (I mean I don't know every song... or the names of all the band members) I'm looking forward to seeing them. There aren't many "super bands" left, which is why I paid stupid money to see U2, and Metallica is definitely one of them.
Not only do I get to see a pretty cool band, but I get to see them with my husband. Danny and I have not been to a concert together since before we had Lynden... yes, it's been that long. Although, I suspect this might start something for us (especially since we're both hoping Coheed and Cambria make a stop in Vancouver on their upcoming tour)
The only downside - we had to print out tickets online, which means I have no ticket stub to keep. Maybe I can find a discarded one on our way out....
What was your favourite band to see?
