    I'm guessing you're in your 20's, right? I think all of the shows you've been to at such a young age is amazing!  Absolutely LOVE the fact that you have travelled overseas to see Epica and P!nk! That shows awesome dedication and passion - I love that in a person. And seriously, what is life without passion and adventure? :D

    I tell my young daughters this all the time - follow your passions, follow your dreams (whatever they may be), make grand future plans, yet don't forget to love where you're at today. 

    I jokingly asked on some other thread who would be up for the 25th anniversary 70k tons of metal cruise in 2036. I suspect you'll be there!  :cheers:

    Now, off to unplug from the Internet and enjoy a long weekend out of town.

    I am, 25 to be exact. I agree! Life would be pretty boring without both and I am lucky that for the time being I am able to do such things.

    Oh I would definitely be there! I'd only be 50 years old and would still have some parties left in me! I'd kick it with all the young whipper snappers! :lol:


    Hey, Rachael - thanks for responding to that 2 month old post of mine ;) :P - but seriously....

    I can totally imagine you on the 25th anniversary 70K tons of metal cruise in 2036. :heavydrink: I mean - 50? - no problem for you I'm sure! :cheers:
    As for me, I'll be 74 I think - so not so sure (although never say never is a good motto I think :beerwink: )

    ....and I've been meaning to say this for a while, next-cabin-door neighbor - even though I'm old enough to be your mother :shock:, I promise I won't "cramp your style" or act my age for that matter. :P :beerwink:

    They put on a decent show, but they only got about 25-30 minutes on stage and there was almost no audience so that had a negative influence on their performance. However I like the female vocal and they have some good riffs. So I think they deserve a chance if you got the time.

    I was definitely planning on checking them out anyways. thanks for the update! I doubt they'll get more than that on the cruise anyways, we shall see.

    Oh, don't worry about that.. We'll meet somewhere in the middle as for our ages. I'm not a "young" 25 year old. ;) :heavydrink:

    That's a cool idea to wear a 2011 shirt to the 2036 cruise (provided there is one of course ;) ) Funny about the grandkids comment - although I doubt I'll have grown-up grandkids in the year 2036 (at least I hope not since my own kids are only 11 and 13!) Who knows - maybe they will like "metal music" then - in whatever form it may exist in the far future. And I like your meet in the middle comment :cool: :heavydrink:

    p.s. you mentioned somewhere that you have a pic of you and Orion of Behemoth - would love to see it - I also met Orion but sadly have no pic ;) ! Huge Behemoth fan here - that's a Behemoth cap I'm wearing in the avatar. :beerhorns:

    I would like to hope that there is a shirt and that it comes in the girl style. I really do hate t-shirts! Haha! In that case, maybe the youngest can chaperone you!
    Yeah, I frequently get told that people think that I am older because of how I act and think. :|
    I do! I do! And one with Nergal too. Oh, that's no good! Next time! They're all really nice guys in person which is really cool. :cheers:

    Excuse the poor quality as I had to screen shot the photos on my iPhone from Facebook. :roll: :D Oh and also how disgusting I look as these were taken after the gig, so my hair and make-up leave little to be desired. :lol:

    :? Lal@, well let's hope not! (especially since we're relatively close in age ;) ) Love your list of concerts - especially Zeppelin, Humble Pie, Deep Purple, and Golden Earring (never saw any of them live sadly). And remember we talked long ago about seeing the same Rush tour circa 1980-81? Time flies, eh? Looking forward to meeting you and friend on the ship! :cheers:

    I wish I could have gotten pics with them the last time they were here, but they did an in-store in the city and I was working so I couldn't get there.

    Haha! Any excuse to repost that picture of Orion in front of the Opera House. :D

    I have a great picture of Orion and Nergal, but it's shitty quality (It was 116 degrees fahrenheit outside and taken with my old camera phone) and I can't figure out how to post it here. Nergal is smiling and flipping off the camera. Great bunch of lads indeed. :mrgreen:

    Thought I'd bump this fun thread since there are several new folks who may want to add to it....
    Also, since it's my birthday and I tend be nostalgic on such occasions, I was looking through my mountain of old ticket stubs this morning and found some more "then and now" stubs...I've got several of these kinds of pairs, but here are just a few....Rush 1981 and 2008, and Genesis 1986 and 2007. :P

    ^^^ cool gnoff :cool: :cheers: ....I've been meaning to ask you how many times you've seen Amon Amarth - I've seen them 6X now (counting both sets on the cruise) - which I believe is about the most I've seen any band. Ha - I think the only other bands I've seen 6 or 7 times are Todd Rundgren/Utopia (over the span of years 1980-1990), Yes (from 1979-2011) and The Grateful Dead (from around 1980-1991). Then there's a bunch I've seen in the 2-4 range, and a lot I've just seen once. ;)

    I have seen every band imaginable live except for The Beatles and Led Zeppelin.

    I already know that I have not seen the amount of shows that you have but I do have you beat on the Zeppelin gig and if you count the individual Beatles touring on their own, I have seen Paul McCartney and Ringo Starr.
    I will have to work on my list and then post but this will take a little bit of time.
    I may just do high lights.

    Impressive list, even if I actually have two friends who have seen Amon Amarth around 40 times, but they are just as insane as you :D
    I don't think I've seen any band more than max 6-8 times, even if I intend to work on my statistics :D

    ^^^ WOW Lal@!!! :cool: :cool: LOVE your list - I'm inspired now to do a complete one myself!
    And love the Led Zeppelin ticket - closest I got to seeing them was seeing Robert Plant solo August 29, 1983 when he performed some :cool: Zep tunes :cool: along with his solo stuff. Funny thing - I saw him at the Rosemont Horizon (now called the Allstate Arena) - where I'll be seeing RAMMSTEIN a week from tonight! Woohoo! :headbanger:
    Hmmm....from Robert Plant in 1983 to Rammstein in 2011 - I like it!

    I have seen every band imaginable live except for The Beatles and Led Zeppelin.

    I already know that I have not seen the amount of shows that you have but I do have you beat on the Zeppelin gig and if you count the individual Beatles touring on their own, I have seen Paul McCartney and Ringo Starr.
    I will have to work on my list and then post but this will take a little bit of time.
    I may just do high lights.


    Michael - when did you see McCartney? I saw him on October 18, 2005 at the United Center. I was never a gigantic McCartney/Beatles/Wings fan or anything (although of course I LIKED them a lot back in the day and a few songs are still some of my very favorites ;) )- but that McCartney gig was simply amazing - just looked up the set list... :cool: (I must say Blackbird, Maybe I'm Amazed, and Let It Be brought tears to my eyes!)

    Tobbe - fuckin-a! :shock: that's a lot of shows too!! - man - between the people from different age brackets and parts of the world - this is one of the greatest, most interesting threads on this forum to date imo .....so major :cheers: :cheers: to that. (moral of the story..we are mostly a bunch of music FREAKS!!)
    and I gotta add a postscript....I'm 50 years old and I talked about the Beatles and Paul McCartney on a recent post on this thread. When I was in high school in the late 70's, the Beatles were already pretty much considered waaaay old school...yet I always appreciated them. ;)

    That entire post evokes a great deal of list envy in me but this in particular almost makes me wanna hate you (but I don't ;))
    So far at least, 2011, 2012 & 2015 were enough for me

    Even if I don't consider myself as a music freak, I guess I am.
    I'm 38 now, so there's been plenty of time to visit shows. Most bands, European or American, shows up in Stockholm during their tours, so there's plenty to pick from too.

    Lal@ - I did a similar 'break" at around the same time, but a bit longer from about 1993-2004, due to focusing very heavily on work, graduate school, raising a family, and the like. It wasn't a complete "cold turkey" break, because I did go to a few shows here and there, but relatively very few compared to the period before and after that break. I guess I must be making up for lost time now. ;)

    Hopefully my choice of words didn't cause anyone offense. ;) The word freak kinda has a negative connotation - but I like to go with the definition of someone who is a bit outside of the norm in their obsessions and passions if you will.....whether it's about music, study of esoteric subjects, or marathoning. I've always thought being a "freak," therefore, is a good thing. :D Regarding seeing lots of shows, we both live in cities where just about every band tours at some point, which is great! My problem tends to be there are too many to pick from (although I'm glad I have that problem and not the opposite), so I try to be somewhat selective. Case in point - Destruction is playing tonight at a great small venue and several friends of mine are going (including a few from the cruise), but I'm going to take a pass since I just saw them twice on the cruise. Also, I have to work early tomorrow and weeknight outings can be killer. :lol:
