- Who's stormed out of a gig then?
A bunch of us had booked at coach to take us from Birmingham to Nottingham for a club night/birthday celebration. We arranged for a coach to pick us up from a Pub by Aston University. It was mid-week so we were pretty much the only people in the pub….. unexpectly the pub was also the venue for a live road-show broadcast for radio 1, featuring a DJ (i forget who) and stand up from Frank Sidebottom.
Frank took the stage just as our coach pulled into view outside. He told his first joke and we (pretty much everyone in the pub) got up and walked out.
I’ve also fallen asleep in the front row at a Donovan gigPosted 4 years agoNorthwindSubscriber
Walked away from Oasis at Reading, they were ****-awful. By pure luck went and saw Muse instead, who were nigh godly. So cheers for that Oasis, glad you weren’t better!
And Rise Against in Glasgow, which was weird, I couldn’t honestly say they were bad but it just wasn’t working for me at all, left out of confusion more than anything else.
Hmm. MGMT as well, they were just so damn dull, low quality Glasgow chips became more appealing.Posted 4 years agoCountZeroMember
I had tickets to see Asobi Seksu in Oxford. For whatever reason, ticket sales, I guess, their headline at the Jerico Tavern got changed to a support at the O2 Academy. I wasn’t going to waste the tickets, so me and my mate drove up to Oxford. We got 35 minutes of Asobi Seksu, then 65 Days Of Static came on. Heard of them, never heard them.Posted 4 years ago
Walked out halfway through the first tune. Dull, duller, dullest. Only time, in 42 years of gig-going I’ve ever walked out of a gig*. I was very disappointed, getting barely half the set of the band I’d paid for tickets to see, and a hundred mile round trip for the privilege. I even sat through a John Martyn gig, where he was so shit-faced, he could barely remember his own songs, so I have a high threshold of tolerance for iffy gigs!
*Sorry, just remembered, I walked out of a Catastrophy Wife gig, Kat Bjelland’s band after Babes In Toyland.
Christ, but they were catastrophic! Really, truly bloody awful. Shame, I liked the Babes.redsoxMember
I stormed wandered off in disappointment when seeing the Foo Fighters at IoW 2011
Almost walked out (or away as it was outside) of their Milton Keynes gig if It wasn’t that I was the designated driver and I would never have found my mates again. 50 quid for a gig that i was just plain bored by and more impressed by the support…….shame really as I’ve liked them since their first album.Posted 4 years agoduckmanMember
The Manics warm up gigs for their proper tour brought them back to Dundee in the late 90’s at which point they were huge…and obviously gracing us provincial peasants with their time. Also walked out of Madame Butterfly as it was crap, Rigoletto had got my hopes up on the Opera/nudity front. Pfft, 45mins in and NO naked flesh.Posted 4 years ago
