Pretty much what the title says.

The top 3 that come to my head are probably Metal Masters, Children Of Bodom/Testament (not my choice though, I would've been there in a heartbeat if I could), and At The Gates (though I wasn't really into them at the time, but looking back now I really regret not seeing them).

Definately At The Gates. Up there would have to be Iced Earth and Into Eternity in September, as well as Dimmu Borgir/Behemoth/Keep of Kalessin.

This thread is making me upset :(

Kinda wished I went to GWAR/Toxic Holocaust, but Suicidal Tendencies the night before killed me.

And I'll always kill myself for waiting too long to get tix to see Celtic Frost open for Type O.

The R30 show, the first Unholy Alliance tour, and all the fucking hype with Flight 666 is making me regret not going to the Somewhere Back In Time tour. Fucking cockfaced Rod Smallwood with his marketing.

Judas Priest '05, the first Mastodon tour in support of Blood Mountain in '06, and 3 CKY headlining shows.

Both bands that still tour pretty consistently, if you had to pick one you made the right call.

I wasn't into Rush at the time so I can't say I regret not going, and having the DVD doesn't hurt.
Once again, I'm not nearly the Maiden fan half of the people on here are, but

Well I guess I obviously regret not going to every ProgPower since I became aware of the festival, but I never had a real shot at going to most of them anyway. I had seriously considered VII in '06 though, and in hindsight I really should've gone. I love Evergrey, Jorn, and Circle II Circle to death, and this was also the last breaths of Thunderstone and Vision Divine before both bands went down the toilet.

One big singular show that sticks in my mind is Stratovarius in NYC on 10/02/06. It was a rough week with two other shows (one being Maiden), I had seen them a year prior, so I figured I'd save the money. Turns out the set list was like 70% different and much better than what I had seen before, and well, we all know what's happened to the band since.
Oh, and another was Dream Theater's "Score" show. The thing that pains me the most is that my best friend went and actually had an extra ticket he was trying to get rid of. The trouble I've always had with Dream Theater is that I'm not a big enough fan to enjoy the set list rotation thing, so I didn't go. In hindsight the set list was phenomenal (Another Won, Afterlife, Raise the Knife, Six Degrees) and the show itself is brilliant, as the DVD shows.
If it were to happen again, I'd easily make the trip to Chicago PowerFest just to see Nocturnal Rites. In 2006 I was reluctant to do it and thus didn't, but having seen the set list and again, what has happened to the band since, I feel I was a total fool for not going. If this band EVER plays America again, I am there.
And lastly, I feel stupid for not seeing the Whitesnake '05 US tour. The DVD put out from that time period is fucking phenomenal and the set list is brilliant. Now they are short both Tommy Aldridge and Marco Mendoza, and despite their popularity have not given me another chance to see them.

That is the worst fucking feeling in the world.

Wanting to see one of your favorite bands, not getting to, and then the band splits up or, in your case, loses a key member.

Many.

Halford's first and last show in London (the famous one where Geoff Tate and Bruce Dickinson joined him for the encore)
Slash's Snakepit's first and last in London
Alice Cooper's tour when Dio supported
Testament's reunion gig in London which ended up being the 'Live In London' DVD
Iron Maiden's Clive Burr Benefit gig in Hammersmith
Yngwie Malmsteen's London gig last year with Ripper on vocals

Nirvana when they were first touring for Nevermind before it got huge in October 1991. They were playing the old 9:30 club in DC. I went to see Jesus Jones and EMF on that night instead because I had a ride there :(

I'm also pissed I passed up on Decapitated the last time they came through Jaxx in VA. They are/were one of my favorite Death Metal bands who I'll never be able to see unless they reform without Vitek :(

Regret Slayer having to cancel one of their shows on the Jager tour back in '04 I believe when they had KSE & Mastodon. Back when KSE was still somewhat respectable plus I had to wait till Mayhem last year to finally see Mastodon. I still remember having that ticket in my hands...

Oh and Velvet Revolver in KC. It was only the 2nd show that they ever played. And of course they did several G 'n R & STP songs. Fuckin friends and their weddings!!!!!!!!!

Way too many.

At the Gates I couldn't find a ride too, and by the time I did, it was sold out.

Thrash and Burn 2008 had a meh lineup, but I'd never seen Arsis or Light this City live, so I was excited as hell, but LTC broke up a few weeks before the tour, and I'm still butthurt over that.

Got quite a few. But, the ones that stick out the most in my mind:

ProgPower USA IX & Maryland Deathfest 2009 (Both fests that I had tickets and travel fares paid for, and then couldn't go)

Carcass, September 2008 (The Worcester date was one of the ones where they joined with the Necrophagist tour)

Fear Factory/Suffocation/Decapitated/Hypocrisy (I'm not too big on Fear Factory, but the other three together? Fuck. But, I saw Decapitated on Summer Slaughter so atleast I got to see them before the accident)

Celtic Frost/Goatwhore (Never get the chance to see Celtic Frost now...)

Edguy/Kamelot, 2008 (...I mean, just look at the pairing!)

07-19-2009, 12:10 PM
Edguy/Kamelot, 2008 (...I mean, just look at the pairing!)

Edguy blew Kamelot away. I like both bands a lot, but it's incredibly difficult for just about anyone to follow Edguy. On the downside, they only played 7 songs. :mad:

Back in 06 (I think) Celtic Frost played Virginia 3 times!



And I missed every single goddamn show.:mad:

I wasn't able to see Blind Guardian in 06 because my parents wouldn't let me got to a show 3 hours away on a Monday night. I've also missed Slayer everytime they've come to Norfolk since I've been a fan. The first time they played either the day before, of, or after Thanksgiving and I was out of town. The other time on the Christ Illusion tour they played here the ONE weekend I was out of town that month. They're coming back on Mayhem fest but I don't know if I'll go. I'd love to see them but I don't really want to pay $60 for an hour of Slayer and short Behemoth and CC sets.

My main one was Agalloch at the Day of the Equinox festival in Toronto back in 2005. I was just getting into the band at the time, and I had just met my soon-to-be best friend from college, who was going... and so I didn't go. And Agalloch has never played anywhere even close to me since. :(

I also regret not buying tickets ahead of time for the recent Volahn/Ashdautas/Bone Awl/Akitsa show in New York :mad:

summer slaughter '08
lamb of god, bodom nd devildriver (replaced AILD for LA show) in '09
sonata arctica '06 tour (mainly because unia wasn't out at the time)
unearth, darkest hour, nd suicide silence '07 tour (great lineup IMO, plus unearth shot their dvd in my area)

there's many more but i can't remember them.

Ah, I guess At the Gates is my third regret after Maiden on the AMOLAD tour and that Cephalic Carnage/Red Chord/BTBAM show. Could have gone to Chicago or New York to see them play with Toxic Holocaust and Darkest Hour (I think), which admittedly isn't easy, but decided against it for money reasons. That was stupid. They're never going to tour again. :bouville:

I missed Sabbath in NYC on Tuesday. There was a strong possibility for me to get in for free if my friend wasn't able to sell his extra ticket. I decided not to go because it was a bit of a risk (16 bucks round trip from LI to the city. I wouldn't want to waste that for nothing especially considering that I don't have alot of money). Well it ended up that my friends ran into the bassist from UFO and he gave them free tickets and meet & greet passes. So I could have seen Sabbath for free and possibly met them afterwards too. FUCK.

Too many to list them all. :boohoo:

• I regret that I’ve never seen (and never will) Pink Floyd, Led Zeppelin, Black Sabbath, etc.
• I regret not seeing Metallica when Cliff Burton was alive.
• I regret not seeing Voivod when Piggy was alive – preferably back in the “Nothingface” era.
• I regret not seeing Morbid Angel with the “Altars of Madness” lineup.
• I regret not seeing Pestilence with the “Consuming Impulse” lineup.
• I regret not seeing Primus before they broke up (although a reunion someday might still be possible).
• I regret not seeing A Perfect Circle before they broke up (although a reunion someday might still be possible).
• I regret not having seen Necrophagist when Marco Minnemann was their drummer.

Specific shows I would have liked to see:
• The Grindcrusher Tour in 1989 with Bolt Thrower, Carcass, Morbid Angel & Napalm Death would have been amazing.
• I regret not seeing basically every Lollapalooza festival that I have missed.
• I regret that I’ve never been to Bonnaroo, South by Southwest, Emissions from the Monolith, Coachella, or any of the awesome summer metal festivals in Europe.
• I regret not being able to go to the Scion Rock Fest earlier this year (Mastodon, Neurosis, High On Fire, Boris, Baroness, Torche, Kylesa, A Storm of Light, Cryptopsy, Withered, Skeletonwitch, etc. – all at one show and for FREE – are you kidding me?!?). :eek:
• The Unholy Alliance 3 tour last fall in Europe (Slayer, Trivium, Mastodon, Amon Amarth) would have been very cool.
• The show in Berkeley, CA last Spring with Made Out of Babies, Mammatus, Grayceon and Giant Squid with Karyn Crisis performing her album vocals for “Throwing a Donner Party at Sea” would have been rad as fuck. :drool:
• I wish I could have made it to the Mayhem tour last July (Slayer, Behemoth, Cannibal Corpse, others…).

Bands that didn’t show up: :chair:
• Arsis at the Carcass show last March (no show…fuckers)
• Suffocation & Decrepit Birth at Summer Slaughter last July (not scheduled for that particular date)

Stupid moves on my part (duh, Nat): :wallbang:
• Not getting to the Behemoth show in 2007 in time to see Gojira, who I did not yet know are awesome as fuck (but I'll go see 'em sometime, tho - b'lee dat)
• Not getting to the Tool show 2007 in time to see Isis, who I did not yet know are awesome as fuck (but at least I’ve seen them since then!).

I would literally murder someone to go to The Fest in Gainesville this year. In fact, I had planned on it, but getting transferred to fucking Alaska put an end to that. It's basically three days of beer-fueled mayhem, and the lineup is virtually every single one of my favorite punk bands. Sigh.

Crikey I got a lot of responses on that one. Time for a mega-post! :D

I've often thought that one looked cool as well. Lineups in recent years have been pretty awesome (although pretty similar to Bonnaroo and others, but tickets are probably much less expensive). Sucks that they moved it outta your neck of the woods, tho...a meet-up might have been fun.

I've always wanted to go to SXSW, but I've heard it's hard to get into a lot of the more popular events.
I've heard the same thing. It takes place like all over the city of Austin, TX. Nothing but metalheads cramming every venue they can squeeze into (sounds like fun, tho...!).

I would literally murder someone to go to The Fest in Gainesville this year...the lineup is virtually every single one of my favorite punk bands. Sigh.
That one was new to me, but there are some pretty cool bands on there for this year (Coalesce, Coliseum, Kylesa, Magrudergrind, Russian Circles, Torche, Young Widows).

not to brag, but they put on one of the greatest shows I have ever seen. Their energy, accuracy, and presence live is like none other.
Yeah, I fucking know. :tp: Rub it in some more, why don'tcha. ;)

Primus got back together. Played Outside Lands last year, but I haven't seen them do anything since.
True, but it's all rather unofficial-sounding and shit, ya know? Are they really back together, or was it just for the time being? It's always so hard to tell with bands like this, especially when they have multiple side projects going at any one time. Bottom line is, I hope to see the original lineup (or as close to it as possible) before I die.

Anal Cunt's last tour. I wanted to go - really badly too - but I had my retard moment of the year and decided to save my money and get an Acrassicauda ticket. Not only did I get into that Acrassicauda show for free (a friend gave me his ticket), but when I found out Seth Putnam died, and I could have met him at Emo's... :mad:

Tryptikon - I'd just started listening to Celtic Frost a week earlier (seriously, I didn't even know "Procreation of the Wicked" at that point) and I didn't want to go when I wasn't too familiar with their stuff. I've since decided "fuck it" so even if I'm not 100% familiar with a band's stuff, I'll still be able to enjoy myself.

The last show at Emo's (the Red River location). Apparently, people started looting shit (bricks, ceiling fan blades), and...well fuck. I would have loved to have a chunk of Emo's in my room...and on that note, Russian Circles on NYE 2011.

Hypocrisy with Alexi Laiho on guitar...I'll leave it at that because I'm still kicking myself for not going.

Venom (July '10)*, Immortal (October '10), Faith No More (July '12), Enslaved (March '11), Kreator (September '10), Integrity (February '12), Corrosion of Conformity (June '11), Pestilence (November '10), Dream Theater (July '11), Tool (July '10)*, Atari Teenage Riot (November '11), Cerebral Ballzy (December '11)*, Rammstein (February '11), Death to All (June '12)*, Landmine Marathon (August '11), Terror (June '11), Dead Congregation (July '12)*, Power of the Riff (August '11)*

I'm already regretting not being able to see Agalloch and Sigur Rós next month :lol:

This.
I ended up going to see BTBAM instead because I had someone to go to that with and would've had to go alone to Anal Cunt.

Possibly the biggest regret of my life is not going to the Slayer/Megadeth/Testament tour in 2010 because Seasons in the Abyss is my favorite album in existence. I wasn't aware that it was being played on the tour, so I ended up not going because I went to like 5 or 6 other shows in the week surrounding that date.

I regret missing out on Anaal Nathrakh on two occasions. A week after graduating high school, they were playing an exclusive show at the Knitting Factory in Hollywood, but I had no money. Then I missed them again to see Morbid Angel play the same set I had seen them play before.

I regret missing out on two Soilent Green shows in 08. I wish that Goatwhore would take a short break so SG could do a US tour.

Too many to list them all. :boohoo:

• I regret that I’ve never seen (and never will) Pink Floyd, Led Zeppelin, Black Sabbath, etc.
• I regret not seeing Primus before they broke up (although a reunion someday might still be possible).
• I regret not seeing A Perfect Circle before they broke up (although a reunion someday might still be possible).

You've now seen Primus, and A Perfect Circle and Black Sabbath are currently a LOT more possible than when this post was made!

Also, I used to comment here with terrible English, good god!

Around 80% of the shows that came and will come to the St. Vitus Bar in Brooklyn before I turn 21+.

Notables off the top of my head:
Giant Squid/Rosetta/Fight Amp/East of the Wall
Bloodiest/Chrome Waves
Primordial/While Heaven Wept/Cormorant
Hammers of Misfortune/The Gates of Slumber
Saint Vitus/Weedeater/Sourvein


Also not many metal shows come to CT, I go to pretty much all the good ones but for some reason was too lazy to go to Old Man Gloom :(

Missing MDF X will probably always be my biggest regret. Electric Wizard, Church of Misery, Godflesh, Noothgrush, Haemorrhage, etc.

Enslaved/Alcest tour because I went to two really expensive shows that month.
Isis farewell tour because I had only heard their name at the time.
Meshuggah/Baroness because I didn't buy tickets sooner.

I seriously regret missing the Nasum show in Chicago. I was still physically exhausted from Meshuggah earlier that week and I didn't really know much about them.

Cynic/Intronaut tour a couple years ago, they played a tiny venue here and i never heard about it.

BTBAM/AAL/Tesseract tour last year

In 2011 when Iron Maiden came to Tampa FL, a friend and I had floor tickets, i was so pumped i couldn't sleep the night before, about 2 hours before we were suppose to leave for the venue, he calls me and says that he can't go, i was pissed beyond all reasoning, it will forever be my biggest concert snub.

I still have the ticket :(

Black Breath and Martyrdod, I thought it was 21+ and found out the day of that it was 18+, and I had to work that night! I was so bummed out. Also DRI earlier this year, I had a ticket but didn't go because I was tired and it was the night after my last final. I also regret not seeing Alcest headline, but it was 3 hours away so I can't regret it too much. There's probably others but I just can't think of them right now.

Also, I will always regret not going to Judas Priest's farewell tour. It was 21+ at a fucking casino, but my friend who went said they didn't even ID anyone at the door. I almost bought the ticket regardless and was gonna try my luck, but ending up thinking better of it at the last minute.

The only show so far that I truly regret not seeing is Pagan's Mind headlining at Station 4 in St. Paul, MN (One of TWO headlining US shows ever)

I had a gig with my old band that night. I can't regret not going more.

For me it's definitely Blasphemy in Montreal in 2009. I can't even remember why I ended up not being able to go, but I'm still pissed today about that :mad:

The only place I would be able to see them is NWN fest...

Oh I remember my first night of college last year The Movielife played a show in NYC, it was my first night of college so its not like I really cared about going to a show. Soon I meet a friend who tells me both Brand New and Crime In Stereo were surprise openers for the show. Would have been an amazing show to attend.

Because i didn't have a car, and i asked several others but no one wanted to go EVEN THOUGH they were getting a free ticket. It was also a 2 1/2 hour drive.

I was beyond pissed.

The only show I truly regret not going to was a Tool show back in 2006. It was the same night as the Sacrifice reunion (or re-animate?) show, and there was no way in hell I was passing that up. My wife went to the Tool show with her cousin and she says it's the best Tool concert she's ever been to. I've complained a lot about Tool's live show (to her at least) and how Maynard just stands in one spot, and apparently at that particular show he was all over the place. Oh well, I don't regret choosing Sacrifice over Tool, because well, it's fucking Sacrifice and it was their first show in like 15 years or something. I just wish they could've been on different nights!

Isis farewell tour because I had only heard their name at the time.I was there, and I have HD video of the entire set. :finger:

One small clarification, though - it wasn't really a "farewell tour" per se, since they didn't know they were calling it quits at the time (or if they did, they didn't tell the fans about it). It was simply their North American tour for Wavering Radiant, and it just turned out to be their final tour ever.

no, they did a tour with Melvins after their first Wavering Radiant tour. It was supposed to be a coheadline tour with Melvins and Isis rotating headlining positions but I think Melvins wound up letting Isis close all the dates when they announced their break up.

My bad. That was the year they were supposedly going to do their last U.S. tour date with a set a Bonnaroo. I remember wanting to see them at 'Roo because of it, but the logistics made it impossible. I thought that was the same year as when I saw them, which was June 2009, but the 'Roo set was in 2010, and the Melvins thing was right after that.

...and to Slap's original point, they had announced the break-up by then. I stand corrected.

EDIT: By my calculations, the video I have is of one of their last thirty or so shows, so that's still pretty cool. I was under the impression it was closer to being one of their last U.S. shows ever, though - but still. At least I have it. :cool:

The only shows I regret missing in the past few years are the Megadeth/Slayer/Testament tour where Megadeth played Rust in Peace and Slayer played Season in the Abyss front to back, An evening with Amon Amarth, Arch Enemy/Devildriver/Skeletonwitch, and most importantly the NEMHF date in 2010 where the Mastodon/BTBAM/Baroness tour. Yes it was one of the nights that Brent Hinds left the stage and Mastodon only played for 50 minutes so it was probably for the best I didn't go, but seeing my two favorite bands of all-time on the same bill along with Baroness while they were still amazing (Still haven't seen them and I don't even know if I want to after Yellow and Green) and some other cool bands like After the Burial and Howl would've been badass.

Fortunately, I got to see them at the White Rabbit in San Antonio three months later and stood directly in front of Flattus Maximus, so I wasn't too pissed.

I regret not being in Moscow for Nile and Ministry this month. Also regret not seeing Kyuss (clashed with Lamb of God), Aborted, Adrenaline Mob, Primal Fear, Motörhead and My Dying Bride (though I had already seen them) at this year's Graspop. As for last year, I wish I had seen Angel Witch (saw Korn instead), After the Burial, Spiritual Beggars (saw Black Label Society instead), Times of Grace, Monster Magnet, Moonsorrow, and Legion of the Damned.

Rage Against The Machine came just here at the Verdun Auditorium (a 5000 capacity venue near Montreal) for the Evil Empire tour way back in the early 90's. I was on vacations and for some stupid reason I didn't go. :headoff:

I didn't go to see Heaven & Hell eighter because I didn't feel like it.Knowing now that this was the last time Ronnie ever played in Montreal makes me sad I wasn't there :axe::wallbang:

that's pretty much the only 2 that I'm really still angry with myself about not going to

That was an awesome tour, Earthless was great. I was at the Detroit show. (Nat was there too if I recall correctly)


On topic, I missed both Sleep and Triptykon (separate shows) in 2010 when I first moved here and didn't really want to go to shows alone at the time.

- AC/DC at Sportpaleis Antwerp in 2009, simply impossible to get tickets...

- The full Iron Maiden show at Graspop 2005, I had to leave and they played some 6-7 songs after that, all of them "golden oldies"...

- Black Sabbath's reunion shows with Bill...

- Anthrax with John Bush at Graspop 2003 or 2004...
