    Default What Was The Last Concert Ticket You Bought?

    A similar topic like the album purchases topic, let's list latest concert ticket purchases here. Or purchases you are planning to do.

    Excluding the powerful U.D.O. concert me and my friend went to see back in late January in Turku (we even met Udo Dirkschneider outside the venue!), I've now started "booking" some concerts for myself for 2010.

    The closest "concert" is just another jamming night at the local rock pub this Wednesday, but the special quest is Taage Laiho, a wonderful vocalist indeed, of Kilpi fame. Customer lineups will play throughout the night, Taage will deliver the main bulk of the vocals. Of course, able customers can also sing when Taage takes a break. A nice venue and a chance to sip a few beers, good music blasting loud!

    May 15th will bring a great night for my hometown's new music venue: Monsters Of Cover! It features three cover bands, 2 of them from my hometown, one of them from Vaasa: the headliner MetallicatS and my friend's band Live Wire from Seinajoki and Made In Iron from Vaasa opening the night. Should be a good trio of shows indeed! Live Wire is even planning to bring some small (hopefully not Spinal Tap-esque small) cannons on stage...

    June 1st me and my old friend will go to Tampere stadium for the big bell & guns again...AC/DC!!!

    Today I purchased 3 tickets for myself and my friend:

    The Finnish heavy metal legends Tarot
    - Tampere, March 31st
    - Seinšjoki, April 3rd

    Heaven & Hell, Alice Cooper, Iron Maiden
    - Sonisphere, Pori, August 8th

    I guess I will have to get the 3-day ticket to the Tuska Open Air Metal Festival as well, so many great bands there...Megadeth, Tarot, Hypocrisy, Nile...etc. Maybe this year's Jalometalli Festival in Oulu is one of my choices too, with bands like Carcass, Dream Evil and Demilich...we'll see.

    So, what are your recent concert ticket purchases or the concerts you are planning/wanting to experience this year?

    The last tix I BOUGHT were for Slayer/Megadeth/Testament which are now worthless. The last tix I GOT were free ( I won them) for David Allan Coe--great show BTW.

    I'll most likely go to see Deep Purple in Turku next summer...Haven't gotten the ticket yet though...

    Don't know how long these guys will go on and I think everyone should catch Purple atleast once in a life time.

    I'm still bit unsure about the Sonisphere thing...the ticket is soooo expensive and it would be a long drive to take too...but then again it is Sabbath...

    My most recent one is Ray Davies on 3/17 - Also going to see Solitude Aeturnus on 2/27 at the Ridglea in Ft. Worth. last show I saw was Paul Dianno on 2/14 very fun watching him sing the old Maiden tunes. Can't wait to see what all will be coming to Dallas this Summer - Hoping the Rob Zombie / Alice Cooper tour comes here.

    I'm glad for you 8bit, but I'm not that lucky, ATL show wasn't rescheduled. Instead we're getting Megadeth/testament without Slayer

    I guesse the last ticket I bought was Megadeth R.I.P. tour. I will be there on the 23rd!

    ZZ Top will headline the Puistoblues Festival in Jarvenpaa on Saturday 3rd of July...could be a great journey to go see the little ol' boogie band from Texas first, then to Helsinki Tuska Festival on Sunday 4th of July to see Megadeth R.I.P. show and few others...

    Damnably great options to be considered for this summer.

    just got tickets today for iron maiden supported by heaven and Hell in bergen in august. very expensive, £90 a ticket but it might be my only chance to see dio sing this time around (unless i drag myself to the classic rock festival in london in the summer).

    a hell of a line up though, hope H@H get a good hour plus set time.

    I just bought a ticket to see the volcom tour:

    Mastodon

    Baroness

    Between the Buried and Me

    Valiant Thorr

    I'm a HUGE Mastodon fan, and I've never seen them live before, so I'm way too excited.

    I paid to see a Chickenfoot show in New York last summer. But I've been to many shows since, the last of which was AC/DC in Sydney last Monday (zzzzzzzzz).

    As yet I haven't laid hands on tickets for any upcoming shows... But I'm expecting my Alice In Chains tickets to show up in the next couple of days.

    Yep, Mastodon are something special both on record and live.

    On topic: Wolfmother about a month ago. Good show.

    Other than hitting the local pubs for tunes, the last concert I saw was Old Crow Medicine Show in November.
    I am going to see Bela Fleck Friday night.
    (I realize these aren't exactly metal shows, but you'll apt to find me watching the local symphony orchestra one night and the next night Metallica).
    Got tix to see Great White and Dokken next month.

    that's a fortune to pay to see one headlining band!. those tickets would be more like 40 or 50 pounds in the uk. i guess it's so logistically expensive to go to australia from europe or the usa, unless promotors are just skanking the fans cos they know they will pay to see bands who don't come around that often?.

    still , sometimes you've got to pay what you've got to pay and not worry about it too much. i paid £360 for 2 pearl jam tickets for dublin this summer from a secondary (er, tout/scalper) ticket site. they better be on good form that night!.

    Does Australia still have that "must have an Australian act on the bill" policy that used to annoy the crap out of me in the 90's??

Limping and gimping on one good leg.

    Porcupine Tree, bought them yesterday. Going to see them in June.

    The last tickets before that was for the Progressive Nation 2009 concert in Oslo (Dream Theater, Opeth, Bigelf and Unexpect).

    UPDATE:

    I just scored a ticket to the Iron Maiden gig in Bergen (with Heaven and Hell as special guests)

    Picked up a couple of tix for Rush's Time Machine Tour yesterday. They'll be here in mid August. They're playing Moving Pictures start to finish. Can't wait to finally watch them play The Camera Eye live.

    A Pink Floyd cover band called The End. They played alongside John Carin, Guy Pratt & Durga McBroom a couple nights ago in Buenos Aires. 'Twas a nice gig.
