    My church holds about 3,500 and I play 3 back to back services making it around 10,000 each Sunday, does this count. Other than that the biggest I've played is about 12,000.

    Original band. Have done countless shows. Work our butts off in terms of marketing. Tight band (myspace link below if you're into "pop").

    75 ppl at most, but 20-40 is more the norm ... frustrating at times, but still too passionate about it to stop. From talking to lots of other bands, the live scene in Toronto (Canada's largest city) is really at a low point unless you're a metal act. Even cover acts are noticing a change, losing out to bars holding "guitar hero" nights!

  15. ToyzBass, you wouldn't happen to be the former bassist for Jaxon Jill, would you???

    :)

    On topic:

    #1: NYE 2000-2001, EPCOT, Main Stage, ~100,000 people....that was intense.

    :cool:

    #2: A festival (I've now forgotten the name) in Paris, France; ~10,000 people, right outside this amazing cathedral.

    :D

    Not counting radio or TV audiences, church gigs, or sporting events, I'd say a few thousand.

    This one, several times. Unfortunately, the picture only shows a small fraction of the crowd!

    Mostly my band gets 75 people or so a gig. The most was 150-200, which was for a church fundraising event.

    I would say the UK-LSU game last year. I think that was the most people ever in Commonwealth Stadium (I was in UK's marching band). But as far as a concert setting, Carnegie Hall my senior year of high school.
