  • the greatest show that I missed was the first MSG show in 2003, the one filmed for the DVD. I had attended both Camden shows earlier that week and was hitting up Hershey two days later. it was either two Camdens or two MSGs and I chose Camden because I have friends in Philly. the second MSG show was great anyway and it was more of my type of setlist, but it would have been cool to be at the show they made a DVD from.
    2000: Camden 1, 2003: Philly, State College, Camden 1, MSG 2, Hershey, 2004: Reading, 2005: Philly, 2006: Camden 1, 2, East Rutherford 1, 2007: Lollapalooza, 2008: Camden 1, Washington D.C., MSG 1, 2, 2009: Philly 1, 2, 3, 4, 2010: Bristol, MSG 2, 2011: PJ20 1, 2, 2012: Made In America, 2013: Brooklyn 2, Philly 2, 2014: Denver, 2015: Global Citizen Festival, 2016: Philly 2, Fenway 1, 2018: Fenway 1, 2

    My friend was going to see Eddie last night. Since he was in Vegas, I gave him 5 Grand to gamble with. I told him I wanted it all to go on Black. Bastard! PhillyCrownOfThorns-11-2-12

    I went to the infamous Golden Gate Fields show in June, 1995. I had a great time, and it was a bonus that they came back to San Jose in the fall to make-up for Eddie being sick. I was all set to go to San Jose but couldn't. My brother-in-law was given the tickets and saw a long, awesome show. The only thing I have is a soundboard boot of the show that is a reminder of, to me, the greatest show I missed. I wanted to see Jack Irons again.

    Well, I went to both chanches I had to see Pj live in Buenos Aires...but I could have gone to the Porto Alegre show....

    Non-PJ: I got two!
    1. U2 on February 4th in Buenos Aires...my sister told me to go, and I wasn´t much of a U2 fan back then, but I had always loved ¨ where the streets have no name¨. I didn´t go because I was in my homecountry, Bolivia, and had to go to Buenos Aires for a month and didn´t go coz there was this girl....what an idiot I was.
    2. The Rolling Stones and Bob Dylan, same night, in Buenos Aires, around March or April. Why? Coz I was a real fucling idiot that week...I said ¨tomorrow i´ll buy my ticket...tomorrow....and then, the day of the show came...DAMN!¨

    Luckily, I finally got to see U2 in 2006, twice, and I´m seeing Bob Dylan twice this March. Still waiting for my Rolling Stones show.

  • I had tickets to London Wembley '07, I had even bought flight tickets and everything was planned.. I was going with my boyfriend and then it turned out he had some exams that very day of the concert, so of course we had to cancel everything! it really still annoys me like hell...

    Non PJ - I missed Alice In Chains when they played in Denmark in '06... I didn't go because it wasn't Layne and I really regret it now.. and of course they won't come back here until God knows when...

    Not a PJ show, but back in '93 I was in New Orleans at a Nirvana concert. The opening band had just started their set and I was towards the back of the floor crowd about to make my way to the front. About four rows in I felt someone grab the back of my shirt and jerk me out. It was a security guard. He said he saw me throw a cup of beer and that I was out of there. He handed me off to two other guards who escorted me out. I begged and pleaded, swearing it wasn't me, I was 15 at the time, and couldn't even buy beer! They had no sympathy though and I was outside before I knew it.

    The best part is, as they were leading me out the security tool said something that would forever go down in the most ironic statement made category - "What's the big deal, it's just a Nirvana concert. Besides it's not like they won't be back in a year or two."

    Needless to say, I never got to see Nirvana live.

    And just so you know it was not me who threw the cup. If I had gotten hold of a cup of beer at 15 there is no way I would have wasted it by throwing it. I would have cherished it to the bottom.
    It's all about the music...

  • PJ: Pittsburgh 2006 - could have had my 10c seats but my wife and I decided to limit ourselves to just the Cleveland show this tour. I always wanted to see/hear Release as an opener, and wouldn't you know...

    Others: In 2000, had tickets to see the Who in Cleveland, Pete's side of the stage, row 16. They cancelled and played two shows in Boston instead.

    In 1974, had tickets to see George Harrison in Cleveland. Show cancelled due to snowstorm, never rescheduled. That one's my greatest regret.
  • not the greatest show ....but...

    i had a chance to go to Pittsburgh in 06....

    went to cincy instead.....

    YIKES!!!!!!!!!!!
    Free Boston Lou!!!!

    Fox Theatre, Atlanta 1994.

    Lived there at the time but tickets were IMPOSSIBLE! Was at home with a baby and had to try on the phone....I think those shows sold out in less than 10 minutes.

    I'm still bummed and it's still one of my favorite shows to listen to. (although I only have the entire show on cassestte tape!!!!!!!!!! )

    i had tickets to the fan club only show at the moore theatre and my parents wouldn't take me to seattle to see it. i was about 15, and we lived in vancouver bc.
  • I think it was 96' when they played Randall's Island with the Fastbacks and Ben Harper. My sis got tix but my mom wouldnt let me go since i was still a little young and it was general admission.

    yea my most recent disappointment though probably Hot Water Music reunion show last Friday in Jersey.
    Yes I understand that every life must end.......

    PJ: Seattle in 95 if I recall.

    Other: Beastie Boys in Portland 94

    In the PJ case I had to work.

    In the Beasties case I had just gotten clean and a bunch of my former druggie pals were going and I didn't want the temptation at that moment.
  • Name one and I've missed it as far as PJ goes.

    My only concert was a pretty good one....Tad Gormley Stadium New Orleans '95
    All I have to do is revel in the everyday....then do it again tomorrow

    They say every sin is deadly but I believe they may be wrong...I'm guilty of all seven and I don't feel too bad at all
  • There were 2 that stand out in my mind.

    #1 - 1992-01-02 No set list
    It was a school night and I was a sophomore in high school. A friend had a ticket for me, I had homework and my parents wouldn't let me go.
    This is when they opened for RHCP and Nirvana

    Sounds familiar...

    10/16/91 MADISON W/ CHILI PEPPERS AND PUMPKINS

    DECIDED NOT TO GO AND CHOSE TO STUDY FOR A SCIENCE TEST THAT I WAS TOTALLY STRESSING ABOUT. AT THE TIME, I WASN'T REALLY AWARE OF PJ OR PUMKINS, HAD HEARD SOME CHILI PEPPERS, DIDN'T LIKE THEM ENOUGH TO GET DOWNTOWN THAT NIGHT. NEXT DAY AT SCHOOL EVERYBODY TALKING ABOUT THE SHOW AND THE BANDS.

    SEVENTEEN YEARS LATER, I STILL KICK MYSELF WHEN SOMETHING LIKE THIS THREAD MAKES ME THINK ABOUT IT.

    WHAT IF
    "WE'RE UH, WE'RE GONNA DO THIS ONE WHICH IS UH, CERTAINLY NOT A USUAL ONE, AND THEN UH, JUST TAKE A FEW MORE MINUTES, THEN UH, AND THEN WE'RE GONNA DO OUR BEST TO KEEP TOM PETTY AND THE HEARTBREAKERS AWAKE FR..." (cheering at intro)...
