Travelling to shows

Thu, Apr 19, 2012 at 8:33 AM

I am curious to know who else here has made an epic journey to see a band.

It doesn't necessarily have to be about a long distance that you travelled. We all live in different circumstances and experiences so every effort is valid and equal as long as you feel you had to push yourself in some way to make it to the gig.

last year I randomly decided during the evening of Monday August 8th that I absolutely had to be at the Mayhem show in Dallas on August 10th to see Godsmack. It was irrational and irresponsible and I totally couldn't afford it but what the hell. I called in sick the next morning, jumped in my car and drove 25+ hours by myself from Toronto to Dallas with no real plan. I got to the Gexa Energy Pavillion with several hours to spare, had a nap in my car, bought a ticket from some guy in the parking lot and went in.

It was an incredible day and, for a bunch of reasons, I consider it to be the best show I have ever been to. Maybe that's because what I did seemed insane, exciting and a little scary. Or maybe it's because Godsmack are amazing live.

Whatever. I am really happy that I did it.

anyone else have a story?
