The most incredible thing you've ever seen at a show?

Last night I went to see Devildriver. I knew I was going to get in the pit and have a fun night. My buddy had to drop his kid off and caused us to miss Saviours and Skeletonwitch so I was not a happy camper walking into the venue even though I had free tickets. Kataklysm were awesome. I'm not totally familiar with their music but they played 9 or 10 songs and killed it. I was hanging by the merch area and couldn't get over the Skeletonwitch shirt that said EAT SOME FUCKING PUSSY! on the back. Old me would have bought the shirt strictly out of principle. My other buddy said they yelled it on stage before they left and they were great live.

As we got a drink and moved up for Devildriver I saw a black dude with a mohawk in a wheelchair on the edge of the pit. DD have vicious pits so I'm actually concerned that this dude is going to get jakked up or flattened by a circle pit. They open with End of the Line and I look back and dude is gone. He's in the fucking pit going ballsitic in his chair. They start a circle pit and someone grabs him and is firing him along with the crowd at 20 mph. Man it was incredible. Dude fell out of the chair at least 6 times and people picked him up, he readjusted his legs and got back into it. Those pits were vicious. Top 3 most vicious pits I've ever witnessed and he was right there all night.

I've never had more respect for a human being in my life and I'll never forget witnessing that in person. I've been to hundreds of shows and that is by far the #1 most amazing thing I've ever witnessed at a concert or anywhere for that matter.

That guy sounds like a hero

My most amazing thing was looking around for something to kill myself with while sitting through Hammerfall (opening for Death) and seeing Chuck Shuldiner standing next to me watching them. Yes, I went up to him and bothered, i mean talked, to him.

-Little kids (probably 10 or younger) crowd-surfing at Against Me! and Propagandhi shows.
-A dude who crowd-walked from like half-way back in the crowd to the front in literally two or three strides, then got to the stage, sang a few lines into the mic, and then stage-dived (at an AFI show)
-Didn't see this in person, but two guys from the AFI board got front row for their performance at the VMAs a few years ago, and then stage-dived. They got banned from MTV for life, haha.

i heard about that bill, talk about some totally opposite bands. (even though i do like some Hammerfall).

most interesting thing was seeing a 30 year old man wasted trying to teach a 4 year old kid how to mosh at a Shinedown concert.....lol was pretty funny

Seeing some dude try to get through the pit at Aerosmith when they played Graspop in a motorised wheelchair.

Some asian dude who was dressed like he was going to church getting led through the crowd at Ozzy in 2007 by a fat topless dude who looked about 40.

I've never seen anything too amazing but when I saw Dethklok last year a guy jumped onstage during murmaider and stole the mic from brendon and started singing, then he got his ass kicked by security guards. It was pretty lulzy.
