I go to shows

Posted in Concert Reviews, Music by Jacob Zinn on July 28, 2009

In a follow-up to the Best Fests post, I’ve noticed that even though I’ve missed these big festivals, I have seen a number of the bands on these bills. The only difference is I spent more money to see them in concert individually rather than in one big line-up. Of the bands on those seven festivals, I’ve seen:

HIM
Iron Maiden
Kid Rock
Linkin Park
Megadeth
Metallica
Mötley Crüe
My Chemical Romance
The Offspring
Ozzy Osbourne
Paramore
Red Hot Chili Peppers
The Rolling Stones
Velvet Revolver

They are part of a growing list of bands and artists who I have seen live.
