Concert Overload?

Well with the summer starting to come to a close all the fall tours are being announced. As always, there's way too many shows coming to my area for me to be able to afford them all. Anyone else have this problem (blessing in disguise? Better too many than too few I suppose) every fall/spring? I've got a pretty full schedule already and I just found out today that Satyricon is doing Baltimore and Norfolk in late September. I'd love to see them again but I might wait to see what they're playing before I commit to going.

It's only July and I've already got to choose between:

Motorhead 9/8
Primal Fear 9/9
Edguy 9/11
Pagan's Mind 9/15
Stratovarius 9/23
Sunn O))) 9/23
Satyricon 9/25 or 9/26
Metallica 10/17 (already got my ticket for this one though)
Saint Vitus 10/18

Plus Ensiferum is planning a US tour and I'd like to see them too. Decisions, decisions...

For me it depends on:
-Ticket price
-Ticket value (GA vs. seats/lawn)
-If I've seen a band once or twice before
-How good the band was/is supposed to be live

Go to these. I have no idea when you might ever get a chance to see either of the two bands again, especially as sole headliners. I've not seen either but I've heard that both are fucking excellent live acts, so I can't imagine disappointment there.
Also, if you've never seen Edguy before (the amount they've come to America since '04 makes it hard to believe you haven't), I can't recommend an Edguy show highly enough, especially since the set list this time around should be quite good. (THE PHARAOH!!!!!!!!).
Oh, and if you go to Stratovarius on 9/23 I'll be there. Not that that should really effect your decision, I'm just saying.

Go to all of them. That's what I'd do, and indeed am in my own case. Only choice I had to make was Gotthard or Paradise Lost because they're on the same day.

I basically think there's no such thing as concert overload as long as you can afford it. As soon as I'm going into debt to family members because I want to see more metal shows, I'm no longer seeing more metal shows.

I did this same exact thing. And Helloween and Gamma Ray also tucked in there up in Atlanta.
