That would be a pretty OP concert actually. I'm assuming they played Everlong?

Hey, who else was playing with them?

Did you see them with Against Me! and Serj Tankian???

There were touring with both for a while, I wished so much I could have seen the concert, it would have been amazing....

Yes. Didn't enjoy Tankian in System of the Down. He came across as arrogant, & they didn't play any of his hits. Strange..

Dave Krohl, on the other hand, played to the crowd, & it was over 2 hours.

Against Me was also a pleasant surprise & was total high energy! Upstaged Tankian in my humble opinion.

Against Me! is sick live. I've seen them once.

BTW Serj is touring for his solo stuff so you shouldn't have expected him to play any of his System stuff.

And Serj / System is the kind of thing that you either love or hate. I'm sure I would have absolutely loved it.

Saw them here in Florida. Honestly I'm not a big fan of them but they were alright.

I saw Eric Clapton a year ago and tat was the best concert I've ever seen.

Other bands I've seen lately:

Bob Dylan (Was very good)
B.B. King (Talked a lot but was still great)
Sublime Tribute Band named Badfish (Was very very good.)
Matchbox 20 with Mute Math and Alanis Morrisette (Mutemath was excellent, not a fan of Alanis and Matchbox rocked it.)

I'm going to see Foreigner next saturday. Should be good.

BB King is one of my all time favorites. Saw him at a theater type setting 9 years ago. GREAT show.

I see a lot of local bands and I still do festivals, despite my age. It feels weird (not to say old,lol) being thirty when most of the peope around you are 15-20.

Just got tickest for the best belgian band around, dEUS, sell out in 20 minutes and i got them! (at the same time is was so stupid only buying two, while I could have made a lot of friends happy).

I saw Buffalo Tom, Pinback, Magic Numbers, Pet shop Boys, Morrisey and many other the last two years.

Best artists I ever saw are buffalo Tom, Fugazi, REM, Pixies, Ramones, Afgan whigs, Wilco, metallica, trail of death, breeders, lamb, placebo, TOOL, Zita swoon, sonic youth, dinosaur Jr, the cure, jon spencer, rage against the machine, peppers, 16 horsepower, underworld, chemical brothers...

Bands I just missed and will never see: Nirvana, the smiths, a Hüsker Dü reunion, minutemen.

well queens of the stone age were great.
Weird thing: they said this was their biggest gig ever (8.000 people), seems like they are more popular in belgium than any other place?
