    Re: Most Disappointing Concert Ever?

    With a few exceptions, I avoid going to a concert where the performers are aged 60-70+ y.o. Classic Rock stars who made their mark back in the '70s or early '80s (or God forbid, the '60s). I would prefer to remember them as they were back in their prime; before excessive stardom, drugs, and alcohol took their toll. Luckily, I avoided attending the really bad shows where impaired performers could barely take the stage, let alone sound good. What a rip-off that must have been for the fans.

    As of late there are a quite a few aged solo artists and reconstituted bands that have been revived and are playing some good music. In some of these instances they may be in great form.

    But paying upwards of $100.00 to $500.00, or more, for a ticket is something I can't stomach.

    Re: Most Disappointing Concert Ever?

    David Bowie in 1990 in Frankfurt, Festhalle, Sound+Vision tour. This was before they overhauled the building and espacially the acoustics. It's still bad today but was much worse then. A complete reflective steel construction with a metal dome on top and no damping whatsoever.

    Many bands sucked in that old hall, but Bowie topped them all. It was earbleeding loud (that was before a loudness Limit was set by the authorities years later) and the sound was such a mess, I couldn't tell what Songs he was playing. At that particular evening they had the instruments set up at the side of the stage (including drums) and I couldn't see that side from my seat. So I couldn't even tell which instruments were playing. I couldn't even make out the line-up until I went down to the floor and to the stage after the concert.


    As I said, many Groups tanked in the Festhalle, Frankfurt. But one guy always got a good Sound there: Phil Collins. But that was for a reason: The FOH equipment seemed to come out of an expensive recording studio and was certainly smarter (and more expensive) than the usual rig of other artists. That probably helped a lot and then the fact, that he had the best sound-guys in the business.

    We saw Willie Nelson in 1998 in Salem, Virginia. He talked all of the lyrics and seemed like he could just not give a F.
    It's too bad, we love him, still do, but that was the last concert my wife ever freely consented to go to for nearly 15 years, I think he broke her heart.

    Re: Most Disappointing Concert Ever?"

    U2 - "Met Life Stadium" 2011 "360 Tour". Not the fault of the band - we bought tickets late and literally got the top row in the stadium. Everyone knows that Edge Ises delay - but from where we were there was delay on top of delay on top on delay and the sound was horrible.

    Also getting to and from the stadium was a nightmare. NYC Metro traffic at rush hour to get to the show and all the concert traffic on the way home.

    Re: Most Disappointing Concert Ever?

    When Lou Reed's "Rock n Roll Animal" came out in the mid 70's, it immediately became my favorite album, and Steve Hunter and Dick Wagner became two of my favorite guitar players.
    So when tickets went on sale for Lou Reed in Houston less than a year later, I was thrilled!!!
    I got GREAT seats for the show...third or fourth row as I recall.
    I show up, a weird intro that sounds vaguely like Sweet Jane starts, the lights go up and I see it is a totally different band. I was crest fallen. They played none of the songs like the record. I later learned that Lou had fired that band because they were taking too much attention away from him.

    It took a long time to get over that one.

    Re: Most Disappointing Concert Ever?

    Buddy Guy in 2016, the only gig I've paid to see and walked out of, It was in the symphony hall Birmingham which is one of the best sounding rooms I've ever been in. Buddy's guitar was soo trebbley it was painful to listen too and you couldn't hear a note he played it was just trebley mush, like wah-wah toe down into a hot rod devil with the presence all the way up treble. On top of that buddy just played half a song told a joke then stopped the song it was awful and psychically painful to be in the room with.

    Re: Most Disappointing Concert Ever?

    Albert King in the early 80's, Santa Barbara, CA
    He came on with the guitar completely out of tune and started telling everybody in the band to tune up to him! Pretty soon nothing is in tune at all and Albert is trying to tune the guitar mid song on just about every song. It was a train wreck and I think everybody was happy when they stopped.
    He got a few good bends in though between the tuning sessions. Oh, he also had what looked to be a nice pipe.

    I put on his live set from the Stax concert when I want to hear what he was like on a good day.

    Re: Most Disappointing Concert Ever?

    Hard to pick one so....

    Def Leppard on the Pyromania tour. They were not ready for prime time as a headliner. I walked out in the first five songs. Jon Butcher Axis and Foghat were in support. Leppard was way out matched by both.

    Bruce Springsteen. Okay, 23,000 other people really enjoyed it. I just don't dig starting every song with a five minute story. I walked out during an encore after he kept playing Twist and Shout for eight minutes.

    A friend (Steve Craw) mentioned this thread to me. I will add Styx to this short list. If you have seen the Behind the Music on Styx they mention the Texas Jam debacle. All true. Cotton Bowl in July is 110 in the sun. It was beer, quayludes, weed and "show us your tits" all day. A line up of Uriah Heep, Triumph, Ted Nugent Sammy Hagar and Styx. Hagar did three encores and brought Nugent out to jam some Zeppelin songs. THEN, for the Styx laser show...no kidding...2 1/2 hours to get dark before Styx took the stage. The Cotton Bowl went from 65,000 to 25,000. It was one mass exodus. Kilroy was the wrong thing to do.

    Re: Most Disappointing Concert Ever?

    David Bowie, late 80's, Giants Stadium. I don't know what the tour was called but the stage set looked like a giant spider and D.B. sat out on the end of one of these arms and sang into a mic rigged into a telephone. He didn't move from that perch all night. He did not play one song that anyone knew. All of the songs he did sing sucked. Nobody was standing or moving, people snoozed in their seats, it was brutal.

    worst mix: The Smithereens opening for The Pretenders at Radio City around '89 or so. Sound was a wall of mush. You could not hear one frequency over another. White Noise.

    Re: Most Disappointing Concert Ever?

    I'm not sure if I got the concept behind it, or the meaning of the stage set and how the dancers/performance artists were supposed to be interacting with Bowie, but the Glass Spider tour produced a pretty cool concert video that I think I still have on laser disc; it also was Bowie's attempt to rehab Peter Frampton's image as a working guitarist, and not just a bubble-gum rocker. The combination of "Sons of the Silent Age" and "Heroes" was pretty awesome, at least on video:






    But yeah, I could see how people in the stadium might well respond "huh??" I know I did at times watching it on video.

    Glass spider tour was pretty lame from nose-bleed seats at Anaheim stadium. This from wikipedia: "The tour was generally poorly received at the time for being overblown and pretentious."

    1987. Early 80s tour that was awesome was the "Serious Moonlight". Saw him do that show at the US Festival in 1983.

    Re: Most Disappointing Concert Ever?

    Well, that same paragraph in Wikipedia goes on to add:

    The tour was generally poorly received at the time for being overblown and pretentious. Despite the criticism, Bowie in 1991 remarked that this tour laid the groundwork for later successful theatrical tours by other artists, and the set's design and the show's integration of music and theatrics has inspired later acts by a variety of artists. Starting in the late 2000s, the tour began to collect accolades for its successes, and in 2010 the tour was named one of the top concert tour designs of all time.
    Though hey, it's Wikipedia after all -- come back again in an hour and it could say something entirely different! I found the Glass Spider concept generally overblown and pretentious myself watching the concert video (and missed the non-pretentiousness of the "Serious Moonlight" era), but as those videos above illustrate, there were a few good moments there. And it was fun to see Frampton back onstage, and out of the teenybopper heartthrob mode he was in danger of being stuck in by the late 1970s.

    Probably much better in a reasonable sized venue. From the huge distance from the stage, it just didn't click. It was good to see bowie and Frampton. Not at all the most disappointing for me. Just not a great show from crappy seats!

    Serious Moonlight was the most fun, perhaps best sounding 1980's show I ever saw. Eardrums left intact- played a ton of his catalog.

    I saw the Serious Moonlight tour at the Philly Spectrum, it was the same show they filmed for the Modern Love video. It was a great show.

    I went to a gig where they ran out of beer once (at Wembley Arena of all places!). That was very disappointing. Can't remember who the band was.

    I will have to add to the list, this one has been mentioned in another thread:

    Jefferson Starship at the Lorelei venue in Germany, 1977 or so, where the band did not play at all.

    Was this the 1978 show (or was it 1979?).

    Could the lackluster performance have been more about the excessive heat, the venue, and the outdoor sound system and bad mix?

    I was there and I would agree. Boston-Aerosmith-Whitesnake-Poison-Tesla-Farenheit...June 20, 1987.

    I saw Boston on the "Don't Look Back" tour in the 70's and they were incredibly good. This Texxas Jam was not one of Boston's better shows.

    I guess I'll have to pile on about poor old B.B. King. He played the Beau Rivage casino in Biloxi a few years ago, and it was very, very sad. I had seen him play in his prime at Charles Ever's nightclub in Fayette, MS (and was one of about six white people in there -- and 3 were with me, but no hassles) -- He was incredible.

    Jefferson Starship, about 1976 or so. Free concert in Central Park, NYC. Let's go, kids!

    Got there early with my friends to secure a good spot fairly close in. Waited hours, but no big deal ... until it clouded up and we all got soaked in a thunderstorm. Soggy blanket, chilly and wet.

    Still ... it's the Starship, for free!! Red Octopus!!

    Oh, they were terrible. Out of time, out of tune, Grace and Marty couldn't hit a note. Clam City on guitar. Tough to sit through all that. No fun at all.

    Decades later, I wonder if the monitors were working, whether they could hear themselves properly.

    A few years ago at a bar near my lady friend's place, Derek St Holmes played a no-cover gig. Derek was great, but the pick-up band behind him was so awful I couldn't stand it anymore and left after 3 or 4 songs.

    Most disappointing concert that.............


    Bloodrock, 1973, Mount Vernon High School Football Stadium.

    The opening act showed up and started on time......but then the long wait for Bloodrock.......

    Bloodrock never showed up for the concert. Nope, never even showed up for one song. Nada.

    And just to rub salt into the wounds.....the promoter would not refund our ticket cost.

    As much as I liked Bloodrock......that one bad experience soured me on the band for decades. This was the only concert out of dozens in the '70s I attended where the headliner never showed up for the gig.

    Re: Most Disappointing Concert Ever?

    Like many have eluded to so far...some places have a pretty well laid out absorption scheme but for the most part there's many arenas that I just won't go to again. Allstate Arena, formerly Rosemont Horizon, through 3-4 shows were all just pure mush. United Center is hit or miss, same thing with "Bridgestone Arena." Also, saw Joe B open for BB King out in DeKalb (met him before the show too) IL and that place is the same way. At times you can't tell the transients of a voice from a horn from the cymbals etc... I saw Bob Dylan there too, the only time it sounded OK was when it was just voice & one or two instruments.


    Heck, big ensembles in indoor concrete laden arenas is just a bad idea..... Outdoor shows always sound good for the most part but you usually have to buy a ticket to a "festival"...meh


    Luckily, besides awful sound, I haven't been to show yet where I thought the performer mailed it in.

    ZZTop during the fuzzy guitar '80s. Total phone-in. Zero effort, would have been better lip syncing. I was in the second row. Point Blank opened for them and put them to shame.

    Re: Most Disappointing Concert Ever?

    1986 Aerosmith Cleveland Coliseum.
    I did have some negative comments but kept them out.
    Performers bare their souls to us and that takes major balls. Sometimes they have a bad day; happens to us all. This was a bad night for their frontman... gymnastically. Also, he wouldn't stop holding the mic to his wanker and acting like he was ... "PULLING THE BISHOP". I love their pre 80s stuff though. I walked out after about a half an hour. Sweaty Teddy opened up and that was entertaining; I guess... Instead of having sex with himself he took a staged, scantly clad woman up to the platform above the drummer and simulated "KNOCKING THE BOOTS".
    I saw the Ramones at Kent State in 87 or 86... Joey looked like he had the flu and would cough a lot but he sounded great. Punk scene. Great show but the security was punching people in the face. I had a second row seat in the center. What a circus. There was about a ten foot area between the stage and the front row where Punks were slamdancing -not moshing- and if a crowd surfer was ushered too close to the stage he was grabbed by steroid enhanced security and punched in the head.
    Loud show also; my ears rang for a couple of days.

    A few years ago we went to see Jethro Tull. Ian Anderson spent an inordinate amount of time hurling insults regarding the President at the time. What an asshole.

    I went to see Y&T, Ace Frehley and Guns 'N Roses in early 1987. Guns was supposed to open the show but instead it was Faster Pussycat because Guns was kickin' everybody's ass. Faster Pussycat sucked BALLS....Paul Bunyan BALLS!! Horrible band. The worst. On the other side of the coin, Y&T was the best live RnR band I have ever seen.....to this day.

    Re: Most Disappointing Concert Ever?

    Wow, Guess I've been lucky not to see anything as bad as what you are all talking about.
    Seen a few shows that were lackluster - REM at the Boston Garden (TD Whatever Arena) in '02 or '03 or so, just no energy at all in the place, either from the band or the crowd. Only plus is we had gotten seats way up in the nosebleeds, and I guess there was so many open seats left, they upgraded us to loge level.

    Also Aerosmith at the Garden, maybe 2010? I've seen them probably a dozen or more times going back to Pump tour, and they get better every time I see them - but not that show. Again, no energy, setlist was not good, lot of songs that even old-school fans didn't know. Saw them again a year or 2 later at the amphitheater near here and they kicked major ass.

    Most other shows that I;ve at all been disappointed is the performer is wasted, loaded or baked, though they've never walked off - but you can tell something's off, even (especially) in a club show. Some bad sound or too loud - Misfits were so loud I couldn't hear right for 3 days - I got scared at that one, and Letters to Cleo in 2002 or so - though in that case, I was hanging over the guitarist's moniter, with his Boogie Dual Rec blasting at my head. I hadn't yet learned about earplugs.

    I decided day of the show to go and see Chuck Berry. I was fully aware of how he toured and used pickup bands so I didn't expect some tight show, but this was so bad I was embarrassed for the poor guy. He wold lose his place in the song, lose his place on the fret board. repeat songs and realize it then talk remember and stop mid-lyric. Bitched about the video cameras and big screens and how video taping was not allowed. Then realized what they were and said it was ok. Then he did it again. I have some audio. You can't un-hear it:

    Dang, I feel for him too. At some point you just have to throw in the towel. Or not, apparently.

    1988- Guns n Roses, Texas Stadium, Irving Texas

    Drove from Louisiana to Irving to see GnR at a festival type thing with Ziggy Marley, Iggy Pop, the Smithereens, and INXS. Might have been someone else there too.

    I think that GnR was pissed that INXS was the headliner at a time when Appetite had really hit big. Axel was ranting from the very beginning and walked off-stage several times. They were horrible and just had a nasty vibe about them. They would have been better off to just not show up, which they began to do later. Sad to say cause at the time I was a huge fan of theirs.

    Later that night they showed up at On the Rocks, a live music rock venue. seemed like they were in a better mood then. I was too. lol...
