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.

discuss?
If this is true it's only because they overcompensate with image. Maiden don't dress particularly metal or run around calling themselves metal or write songs that reference metal. They just are metal.

No it has to do with sound as well. Priest always sounded heavier and had more of a crunch in their sound.

Most shows I go to are local, but I don't mind driving/flying if it's a band I want to see bad enough. I go to some shows in FT Worth, which is an hour away, and I flew to Atlanta just to see Fates Warning and Pagan's Mind. This summer I'm driving 5 hours to San Antonio to see Fates Warning again.

Shows in Lawrence = 1 minute down the road.
Shows in Kansas City = 30 minutes away.

Furthest I've ever driven for a concert is 3 hours in Nebraska.

And I flew to Baltimore for Quo Vadis.

I can't stand Dokken's music, but George Lynch deserves all the praise he gets as a guitar god.

Priest may define metal more than Maiden, but they also define average music and boring live shows far more often.

Yeah, that's right, I said it.

Bill Bruford is a better drummer than any in the entire genre of metal.

I've always been bored to tears by Priest. They just do nothing for me.
