On the Street

What is the worst concert you've ever been to?


Slipknot. Slipknot was lame because they just didn't have the energy of the opening band, Lamb of God. They were kind of dull compared to what you'd expect, and I got slammed on the ground by a bouncer, and elbowed in the eye and kicked out of the concert.

It could have been cooler.


It wasn't in Spokane, but it was Cheap Trick. They didn't interact with the audience. They just sang their songs and were dead. I was bummed.

What would make a good concert?

Interaction and personal experiences with the performers to make it feel special.


Garth Brooks, because I was 9 years old and his music was terrible. I think it would be better if I could go see his punk-rock alter ego concerts. I think that would be fun to go to and see how terrible it is.


The worst one I've ever been to was a Willie Nelson concert when he was 65 years old and he was lousy.

What makes a good concert?

The positive personality that the [performer] gives to the people in the audience.


The worst concert I've ever been to was probably Green Day, because it was outdoors, really hot and overcrowded, and the speakers weren't set right, so we got a lot of feedback from the amps.

What makes a good concert?

The venue has a lot to do with it. The size. I like venues that are a bit smaller, so the concert can feel more intimate.
