Longest Concert You Have Attended-and remember

Postby tribute1969 » Sun Nov 17, 2002 10:03 pm

What is the "LONGEST" concert you have attended? It could be TIME-WISE for instance: Festivals (Woodstock, OzzFest,etc) It could SO BAD it seemed like forever for instance: Spice Girls,Back Street Boys It could be LATEST start for instance: second shows beginning at 10pm/midnight like in Vegas,etc

I myself have all three:
LONGEST/TIMEWISE: weekend festival in '72 at Rockingham,NC Speedway-Alice Cooper, Fleetwood Mac (Peter Welch days-no Stevie or Lindsey)many others I somehow DO NOT remember!Must have been the heat!
LONGEST/SO BAD: George Jones/Merle Haggard-no disrespect, but TOO hardcore "Country" for me-I went with "Friends" Tears In My Beer and ears!!
LONGEST/LATEST: Roger McGuinn of BYRDS(solo tour) opening for Billy Joel(first major tour after Piano Man) Atlanta '75, Electric Ballroom--Roger came on as scheduled at 2AM! Billy started around 3:30AM!!!Plus 18 year olds could still legally drink-"Politically Correct"?? by today's standards, I don't think so! FUN!! YES IT WAS!!

full sets from...

Van Halen (hagger)
Scorpions
Mettalica
Dokken
Kingdome Come

it' seemed to go on forever, very hot, uncomfortable, and the people on the field distroyed the artificial turf.

The one that seemed the longest had to be the Tom Petty/Bob Dylan concert I saw probably about 17 years ago. I remember it because I love Tom Petty and I appreciate Bob Dylan but together they were so boring that I just could not believe it. I had seen Tom before and he was incredible in concert, very interactive with the crowd, but with Dylan he didn't seem to care about the crowd, and he was slow and painful.

I have never attended any weekend long festivals. The longest concert I've attended and enjoyed was Bruce Springsteens "Born in the USA" tour,,,,84, was it? Three Rivers Stadium in Pittsburgh, I had 5th row center stage on the floor seats. It was looong, and wonderful.

I was sitting in church(my father-in-law is the minister, I have to!) today and it came to me ....Peter Green/Fleetwood Mac....not Welch, at least I think that's correct!! of course I can only remember two of the 20 or so bands there plus we left my friend Renny High(no pun/joke intended)behind when we drove on down to Myrtle Beach for the rest of the week--he caught another ride-kinda like the scene from ALMOST FAMOUS-"I'm ONLY the Lead Singer, I'm easy to forget"

I can`t remeber the longest concert i have ever attended,but I sure can tell you about the shortest. It was Bryan Adams at the Meadowlands,about eight years ago. He came on with a mouthful fo attitude. What a pompous, arrogant asshole. He played mnone of his older songs, chastised the crowd when they weren`t responding with gusto by saying `We came all the way from NYC to play for you guys tonight'. Fucken` Hell!!!!! I shelled out my hard-earned dough to see your ass in concert. And you have this dickhead copping an attitude on stage as if he was Mr. Music himself. I can`t stand egotistical,pompous arrogant shitheads. But they have their uses for me when I post here because I will go after them with unrelenting vitrol and no apologies. My girl and i walked out halfway through the concert. The worst, disappointing, a great waste of money and time. Bryan Adams should change the name of his maudin , insipid ballad to`Everything I do, I do for me.' It befits his self-serving, assoholic attitude. Robin Hood should have shot ten arrows up his ass.

Longest one was at the California Jam back in 75 Ontario Speedway.

Seals and Croft..Earth Wind and Fire, Black Oak Arkansas, Black Sabbath, Deep Purple, Emerson, Lake and Palmer..there may have been more..time has diminished my memory.

Longest one night concert was definatly LED ZEPPELIN, 1970 4 Hours of the Zeppelin! A night I will never forget..and Plant still had a voice back then!

The longest show by a single act for me was Springsteen also, on the Tunnel of Love tour in '87-'88. The first set lasted 1.5 hours, the second set lasted 1.75 hours, and the encore was 45 minutes. I sang along with every song - my throat was raw at the end of the first set, and completely shredded at the end of the show.

I saw a review in the local paper this morning of a Springsteen concert this past weekend in Greensboro, NC. It seems that Bruce has scaled down his concerts, and "only" plays for 2.5 to 3 hours now.

Little River band, Heart, and the Eagles, Yale Bowl, New Haven Ct,
June 1980, Had to be about 12 hours from getting there until getting out with the most narsisstic little princess you can possibly imagine whinning the entire time, god I cringe just thinking about it.

Two longest: Led Zeppelin @ Earls Court, London, 1975. Nearly four hours, but I only saw half of it as I was so pissed I passed out! A CSNY gig at Wembley Stadium seemed to go on for a similar amount of time (if I recall)

Worst Gig: Kiss at the Hammersmith Odeon, London, in 1976. I never have fathomed their attraction! Walked out after 30 minutes, and wrote a letter (on toilet paper) to the NME about it. It got printed!

Cheers,

Simon

Well, I was at Live Aid in Philly in '85 and saw the Amnesty show in N.J. in '86, Live Aid was 18 straight hours (while they were changing sets in Philly they were broadcasting the London show on the screens) and Amnesty was about 8 or 9 hours IIRC.

Dream Theater played for 3.5 hours on 8/30/00 at Roseland in NYC, a show they recorded for DVD release. They played for almost the same amount of time the night before in CT.

The Who on their THIRD "Farewell Tour" was so bad I walked out in the middle of it.

I saw Eric Johnson open for Steve Miller, and S.M. was so bad I only sat for 3 songs and left.

I've seen some short shows, but 2 years ago Queensryche did "An Evening With" tour and only played for 90 minutes. THAT was lame.

Longest show/timewise: Probably the Human Rights show in 1988 at the Coliseum.
Yousou N'Dour, Tracy Chapman, Sting, Peter Gabriel, and Bruce Springsteen. We missed N'Dour's set, but saw the rest. I believe Bruce finished at about 3 AM, and the show had started at 7:30 or 8. Not as long as some others on the list here, but dayam!

Longest show/attention span and/or bad: 4 way tie:

1) Motley Crue, 1985. Don't ask--I was a heavy metal kid.

2)Van Halen in 1986. This was probably my own fault though, as that day I'd gotten a digital piano, and wanted to get home so I could play. I think the show was actually good, but I couldn't concentrate!

3) Boston in 1987. I might as well have stayed home and listened to the records. It was EXACTLY the same (with a couple of tiny exceptions).

4) Joe Satriani/Eric Johnson/Viv Campbell: G3 in 1990 or so.
Eric Johnson was amazing, with an all-too short set. The other two just bored me to tears. I actually fell asleep during Satch's set, believe it or not!

BTW, Tribute1969, if you saw Fleetwood Mac in 1972 you're likely thinking of BOB Welch...I think Peter Green left the band in 1969 or 70, in a sense he pulled a Syd Barrett....

The longest show I ever attended was the original US Festival in '82. Three days and a lot of fun. The longest single act I ever sat through was Bob Dylan at Toad's Place in New Haven, CT in '90. Five hours and almost every song he ever recorded.

<font face='Comic Sans MS'>lmao!
if this is not a typo, let me amusingly inform you that hoppkorv means 'jump sausage' in swedish!
though there is no such phrase to my knowledge. it could be dialectical since jorma kaukkonen at times resides in a small village in north sweden, not far from the norwegian border.
any idea on this hennie?

guilddigger your right, I did spell it the way it appears on the Hot Tuna album cover but the art work theme on the cover is "sausage"!
I actually do remember reading that in a music mag back in the 70's.
Thanks for the reminding me. Have you ever seen Hot Tuna? They used to put on quite a show.

<font face='Comic Sans MS'>
never saw hot tuna unfortunately, but i've heard some of their albums. when i was around 20 i had an acoustic guitar duo and one song we played was 'hesitation blues'. it was a fun song to play. i was not very accomplished those days but i learned a lot!
'jump sausage' tee hee!
then, 'hopp' is also the word for hope.
would that make it a wiener that keeps the faith?

When I was in my late teens, we had a pretty cool concert venue in Bournemouth called The Hardrock (there was also a sister venue in Manchester.) One night, they put on a mini-festival, with loads of different bands playing; none of which I can actually remember; no big names though, I know that much! The atmosphere though was really cool, people just milling around, skinning-up and generally having a good time. There was even a couple having sex in the middle of the hall! No idea how long it lasted, but it was a fair old time!

June, 1976 JFK stadium in Philly. Pousette Dart Band, Gary Wright, Peter Frampton, and, of course, Yes. Fondest memory-"Ta-cha-cha" part in Sound Chaser echoing loudly in cavernous JFK. I was 17 & in heaven.

Longest: Santana/Greatful Dead in 91'

Total time was in the neighborhood of 6 hours, but felt like an hour thanks to the liberty caps. I simply remember Santana coming and going nearly in the same motion and then The Dead playing I swear nonstop for nearly 4 hours. I don't remember any breaks between any of their songs: just one continuous piece of music. But, then again, my reality was slighty distorted that fine April day.

Postby tardistraveler » Fri May 09, 2003 6:51 am

Longest concert - all day festival July 4, 1975, Memphis Stadium, Charlie Daniels, J. Geils Band, and the Stones! Was so hot and exhausted after sitting in the intense heat all day that I almost (but not quite!) fell asleep during the Stones!

Concert that I couldn't wait to be over - Mahavishnu Orchestra, War Memorial Auditorium, Nashville. Wasn't any fault of the band. I had taken mescaline prior to the concert, and the combination of the trippy feeling and the dissonant music was too much for my poor brain! I felt like my head had been opened, the brain removed, stomped on, and plopped back in! Was a couple of days before I felt "normal" again!

Concert I slept through - Johnny Winter, Municipal Auditorium, Nashville - Made the mistake of taking serious downers for this one - don't remember a thing - bummer.

<font face='Comic Sans MS'>springsteen 'born in the usa' tour 1985 in gothenburg. he did his usual three and a half - four hour concert and we had seats opposite stage side. the band were the size of ants! this was the concert that put a stop to using that particular arena for almost ten years. when 60 000 people jumped in time to 'cadillac range' the concrete foundation started trembling and spotlights on the roof folded! as i remember i was kinda bored in the end.
