I live an hour from London, where every single show I go to is. That's just to get to London. Then if the venue is somewhere like Camden or Islington, then add another 20 minutes to get there. If it's Hammersmith, Shepherd's Bush, Brixton, something like that, then it's at least another 40 minutes.
Today it took me nearly 2.5 hours to get back from Opeth.
So yeah, I agree, 1-2 hours for any show is absolutely nothing.
I think so far the longest journeys I've done for a show are Sweden Rock Festival, which takes something like 7 hours to eventually get to, but that's with waiting periods between modes of transport, so the longest straight travelling is probably the Hard Rock Hell festival last year, which I guess took 5 hours door to door.
