    ..thats what mine wants as a birthday present.
  2. I don't have a 9 yr old daughter, but if I did, the answer would be "no". As in, "Heck no, not a chance, forget about it, did you mean 'Disney on Ice' because that's where we're going".

    Sure, why not if she likes their music and videos.
    Beats the heck out of having to take her to a Bieber show.

    Even if she was into their music, I don't think a child that age would be emotionally prepared for their live show. She'd likely suffer less trauma at a local haunted house. IMO. :D

    Thats a good point MonetBass. if we go..i wont take her to the moshpit. We could sit somewhere in the back of the hall and watch it all from a little distance. She never gets tired of their live videos. Disney on Ice would be better for her. Lots of bad language etc..but on the other hand: would i have loved it if my father took me to a Kiss concert when i was nine? I think so

    No, I wouldn't encourage mediocrity to my children. I try to teach them to appreciate greatness. My kids can explain exactly why Looney Toons is better than anything on Nick. They know the difference between a Tex Avery and Chuck Jones Bugs Bunny.

    If my kid was cool enough to want to see slipknot, I'd go in a second. Balcony, up against the railing, earplugs ready. Corey does swear a bit, but nothing too bad. You may have to explain why Slipknot fans have such high rates of gloucoma tho.

    its strange for a 9 year old to like slipknot ... but what they hey, if she's mature enough to know that it's just a show, and the negativity in the lyrics doesn't turn her into a negative person, then hey-ho let's go

    Definitely, just keep to the sides so that they don't get sucked into a moshpit and she'll be fine.

    If she wanted to and it was okay with her mom, then yeah.
  13. I dated a girl in college whose dad went to many of the same shows we did. It was a little strange but cool at the same time.

    so i guess she does not listen to "people=sh*t?"

    come to think of it, the more current slipknot songs are "fun and jumpy" ... like psychosocial. there even is a youtube clip somewhere where they mixed it with bieber's "baby"

    Sure, I would. I wouldn't take a child on the floor though.

    Mmmm.... no. I guess you already made your decision, but I'll say anyway - I would worry more about the crowd than the band. I hope you got tickets in fixed seats and a ways back in the house where things would be calmer. I took my teenaged kids to a Black Keys concert, general admission on the floor, and the crowd was so rough and suffocating, I worried for them. And that's the Black Keys.

    Even, if I thought she could handle the music, I wouldn't take her simply because of all the weed smoke she will inhale. For that reason alone, I think it's highly inappropriate and blatantly irresponsible to take her.
