I fortunately haven't seen any bad/disappointing shows, but I kinda wish I had the money back I paid for my TSO spring tour tickets, and as usual, seeing Maiden was almost more bullshit than it was worth, which is why I'm not sure I'm gonna bother trying to get good tickets for the next tour.

Primal Fear, Shadow Gallery (w/Suspyre), Kansas, Y&T (w/Icarus Witch), Dream Theater (supporting Maiden) were all fantastic shows.

I expect to have very good things to say following the upcoming Firewind and Blind Guardian shows, as I've seen both bands before and both ruled.

09-09-2010, 06:58 PM
So many good shows this year.

1. Vektor
2. Coalesce
3. Boris
4. Destroyer 666
5. Black Cobra
6. Mastodon
7. Immolation
8. Havok
9. Magrudergrind
10. Weedeater

09-09-2010, 08:27 PM
Suffocation, Cannibal Corpse, Iron Maiden, Motorhead, Machine Head, Slash and Anvil all played sterling performances when I seen them. Not sure how the ranking would go as theres a still a few shows I have yet to witness!

09-09-2010, 09:02 PM

Ugh. Same thing with me. Seriously fuck arena shows. And fan club presales.

09-10-2010, 06:30 PM
Maiden would top my list, no doubt. Best show I've ever seen.

1.Rob Zombie, Mayhem Festival - San Bernadino :allan:
2.Iron Maiden, The Final Frontier tour - San Bernadino :light:
3.Motley Crue, Ozzfest - San Bernadino :tongue:
4.Korn, The Jimmy Kimmel show - Hollywood :rocker:

Biggest disappointment:
Korn, Mayhem Festival - San Bernadino :confused:

09-30-2010, 06:32 PM
My top 10 would probably look something like this:

5. Alice In Chains - BlackDiamondSkye
