Hi, only seen them once. When they released The Crimson Idol I saw them at a very low key gig at The Marquee in London. Blackie got out of his car by the doors and walked straight past us and boy was that guy tall! Great gig and I have hours today trawling the internet to see if any bootlegs of the gig are out their.
Great gig, so close to the group at one point and man did it rock.
I might have the best one?????? I've seen them 3 times. Twice sort of recently..Jax Beach, and Ft Lauderdale Fla. No real support act.. BUT......... I saw them in Wichita Ks, not sure what year 80 something? Get this..... our boys WASP headline.... warming up Armored Saint, and yes.........Metallica...!!! How about that...!!!! Cool or what. The world as it should be...........
I have seen them three times. First time was with Metallica and Amored Saint on their debut album tour. Seen them at the same venue (Mid Hudson Civic Center, Poughkeepsie NY) on thier Last Command tour... i was too wasted to remeber who they played with. and the last time I saw them was at The Chance in Poughkeepsie, NY Headless Children Tour...with Accept and Metal Church.
Saw them twice. The first one was at Metalway Festival in Spain, on June 20th 2009. The same day were playing also Sabatan, Axxis, Sodom, Europe, Riot, Duff McKagan's Loaded, Blind Guardian, Children Of Bodom and Baron Rojo.
The second time was few days later, on July 4th, in Pinarella di Cervia, Italy. No opening act. One of the best shows I've ever seen...
i saw them just once in 2006 in Istanbul!!!! they r my fav for many years,and i waited long also!! i'm diehard!!
so how they could've been?!?! awesome!! before them just 1 band had a gig... they r turkish metal band.. and that singer fan of Blackie as like me for long time! so what a great feeling!!!
for me that concert was like my dream came true!! also i met with them!! Blackie was so cool as always!!!
i wanna see them again and again!!! Blackie impressed me for everything that i had in my life!!! hes my dad!!!
even no any words to explain what do i have for him and his music!! LOVE U ALL GUYS!!!!!!!!!!
Hey, I saw them five times. All concerts were played in Russia, in Moscow's night clubs. In 2004, 2006 (2 times), and 2007. Blackie and Co were incomparable!!!!! In october they're going to play the sixth time!!!! I can't believe it =)
5 times. First was on a bill with Metallica and Armored Saint. They opened for KISS next time around.I cant think of the bands that opened for them, except Pissing Razors.I have seen them in in more citys and countries than any other band, thats for sure.I have met everyone that has ever been in that band,except Blackie,go figure. Quick funny story;I met Douglas outside Planet Music in Vienna after the show.We made short talk,he was glad and surprised to meet an American.Some really crazy drink chick came up and started talking to us and asked if he was in the band.He looked at me and said "no I play banjo" I added, "yeah we are on tour as the dueling Bajnos across the globe".She beleved it and walked away.Doug and I looked at each other and just burst out laughing.Any way, great guy.I have a Chris story but thats another day....
I saw them two or three times, but the best was when they played with Twisted Sister. One of the best concerts I've ever seen (And when I got there, I found out Metal Church was opening. I love bonus metal!)
I have seen WASP a few times... the coolest time was my first in a small club in Philly. Armored Saint opened for W.A.S.P. and W.A.S.P. opened for an unknown band at the time called Metallica. Metallica was touring on their Ride the Lightning tour. I almost caught the Skull Blackie drank blood from. When they played Animal the place went ballistic.
I have seen them a total of seven times in different venues around the U.k.The first time was on the kfd tour, so I got to see the all the horror! The most recent was last November, and as always, an awesome show! The best support band I have seen open for them were British speed metallers, Dragonforce. Their energy and tightness was incredible! If you have photos of the shows you went to, you may like to enter my contest. Details on the board.
