Here are the shows I have went to within the past couple of years. 2010 [Took my son with me to this, it was his first concert. I wasn't sure how he'd react with how loud it was, or the amount of people. He did like Skillet though so it was worth a shot. At the end of this one, he told me he wanted to go to so many more...] View attachment 707 2011[Dead of winter, a blizzard rolling through, yet I (with Ape) riding took a normal 3.5 hour drive 7.5 hours due to the weather. Awesome show, very long day. If I recall, I finally got in around 6AM the next morning. Disturbed was spectacular, and In This Moment stole the show.] View attachment 708 [Early May for this one, it was the "first ever" Carolina Rebellion. I couldn't pass up the opportunity to see Three Days Grace or Bullet For My Valentine (although I would be seeing them a little bit later). Had a few people going in this one, my sister and her boyfriend, myself, Ape and my son, and another couple we all knew. Awesome experience.] View attachment 709 [The greatest music experience ever, Rock on the Range. Couldn't miss it. I made the decision early on my son would have to sit this one out, and it is a good thing he did. We were front row all day on Day 3 (Sunday), getting crushed by the weight of the fans, the moshing going on behind us, crowd surfing was unreal. POD was excellent, Disturbed as always, All That Remains had a great show, and Korn practically tore the house down. Strange group on Friday was fun, Steel Panther... so hilarious. Took a break last year (shows just didn't excite us, no really great ones playing...), now building up for another run during 2013] View attachment 710 That is it for now, stay tuned... there will be more. Gotta see Volbeat, Five Finger Death Punch, and I am always wanting to see Disturbed again.
