Hello Hello!!

My opinion of Kings of Leon..... @ 10:37 pm

unorthodox_muse:
I downloaded a few Kings of Leon songs to check them out.

Let me just say this, THEY ICKY!

They will have a very very very tough crowd to play too.. I have a feeling not many ppl will be liking to hear that!

The last time I saw U2 live, they had Rage Against the Machine opening for them.

It sucked. Everybody hated it.

Best opening act I ever saw at a concert was Pink, opening for Lenny Kravitz. Also, Counting Crows opening for The Who was good. :)

Pink would have been really good! Hey, I saw the Stray Cats open for The Go-Go's! LMAO! (It was good at the time!) I don't know why but i cannot remember half of who opened for the concerts I've been too... must be going senile. Actually Quarterflash opening for loverboy was good in it's time. (That came back to me out of no where LOL!)

I didn't like PJ Harvey either... at least not till she was ground into my head night after night after night after night.... UGH! You are going to think this is odd, but I've never heard a doves song. never. And I only know of them from you. =\ But that is cool if they open for you guys over there since they are popular and everyone knows them and likes them!

I wouldn't mind them just not having an opening act. maybe showing a video, or having a comedian or some damn thing. dancers, anything... just not painful music that no one came to hear!

dude, U2 just gets lousy support acts (for the most part) no matter where they are. while i admit nelly furtado was worse (*retch*), we had fuckin no doubt and rage against the machine over here. uh... i'm well aware they are really popular and lots of people liked them but NO.

i have to agree with you, the choice of opener is definitely questionable. i've been trying to like them but so far i'm just really not. eeehhh.

The worst opening act I saw for U2 was Smashmouth in Seattle for Popmart!! HORRIBLE!! I got out of my seat and walked around until they finished. Thought it would never end!! I started to like PJ Harvey.

((If those links dont work just go here -- http://www.geocities.com/Just_AmyB/whoops.html -- this stupid page is soo old and a total embarrassment!))


Why do they always pick the shittiest bands to open? My guess (being the greedy bastards that they are LOL) is because they don't have to give shitty bands as much money as they would to a better band!

I quite like Kings of Leon actually. Southern Fried Strokes. Just a shame they're not coming to the UK. Although Doves would be better.

the thing about opening bands... no one's there to see them (not counting my Garbage-enthusiast friend who came with me to Chicago in '01), and they get so much crap from the audience... i hate seeing them booed and shouted at. of course no one wants to wait any longer to see the main attraction, but i just think it's really bad manners/ettiquette/whatever to heckle and yell at the opening act. if you don't like them, get up and get a drink, stand in line for the bathroom, talk to your friend, whatever. just leave the poor opening band alone. because yelling at them is sure to make U2 come out sooner, right? :P

i witnessed some terrible concert ettiquette in Milwaukee in '01 during PJ Harvey. i'm not a fan of her music, but my friend who was with me was (and she'd never been to any concert before, let alone one so huge), and the guy next to me kept screaming at PJ to "GET OFF THE STAGE" and "SHUT UP AND BRING ON U2", and i've never wanted to stomp on someone's foot so much ever. what a jerk.

I think they have to be to your own tastes really but I think they're an excellent live band. Molly Chambers is superb.
