    For my fav all the way across the country or even over seas.
     
  3. Guarenteed last show? To the end of the earth. If John Bonham came back to life and was only going to be undead for one show with Led Zeppelin, and that show was on an iceberg in the artic sea, I'd be the first in line for a ticket.

    lol

    If Hendrix were to rise back from the ashes and join up with the Dead for some epic length songs and jam and was being played in some remote location such as an iceburg, ill be the first one there.

    Boston or NYC.

    Both great places to see a show.

    Bands and band guys/gals, don't stop eating, living, breathing, procreating and paying bills unless they are dead. So the pros will be back, in one form or another, to Beantown or the City. Or they fade.
    And detail cars.

    Hey, I love travel, so if a band I liked were playing overseas, it would just make a great excuse to travel.

    On a side note, being a huge Harry Connick, Jr. fan, many years ago I drove to Hollywood for a concert, 3 hour show, got backstage, hopped in the car, drove back to SF for the concert the next day. That was sweet.
     
  12. I admire your dedication if you would drive overseas to see your favorite band! :)
     
  13. :D Yeh, i just had to renew the rego on my hovercraft last week :D

    Maybe an hour.....60 miles or so. I guess I'm just not devoted enough to any musicians to go to great lengths to see them.

    You could all wait and just buy the Concert DVD of their last show.

  18. This happened to me when i was about 14 or 15. my favourite band was "the boo radleys" a grea british group. i live in St. Catharines, ontario (right beside Niagara Falls) and they were playing in detroit. i wanted to go, and my sister was willing to drive there, but my mother wouldn't let us. a year or two later the band broke up. it wasn't their last show, but it was the only show i ever heard of that was within any reasonable distance of where i live. i'm still bitter.
     
  19. I would definitely drive cross-country if I could see AFI in concert. It's sucks so much to live on a tiny island.... :(

    You make this statement as if your car isn't fitted to cross an ocean. What kind of piece of junk are you driving?
