    Linkin Park

    You may or may not care for their music, but Linkin Park has been a favorite of mine for many years. I'm not so keen on their newest stuff, but I know almost every single song from Hybrid Theory through Minutes to Midnight. Anyway... I saw them on their Meteora tour, and that...

    It was my very first concert,

    really. I took a plane down from Seattle to San Fransisco to see this Japanese metal group I liked called Dir en grey and spent three days in California for it. I was 18. It was ******* awesome!

    I went to see Avenged Sevenfold back in 2010.

    At the time, Mike Portnoy was drumming for them. What an awesome show! They sound amazing live, and the light show was phenomenal. Portnoy had his Tama Crystal Ice set, Syn and Zacky had their signature guitars, and Johnny had his custom bass. I'll never forget that show.

    I've seen Coldplay twice now.

    The first time I saw them, by the end of the show the entire amphitheater was literally in enthusiasm. Chris Martin is just amazing. He was bouncing all around the stage in his lovable way getting everyone pumped. If you have a chance to see them, go. Worth every penny.

    My first concert, and the only one I've been to,

    was a Fall Out Boy concert, the Boys of Zummer. Wiz sucked and he smoked weed onstage and I couldn't breathe so we stepped out, but Fall Out Boy was amazing. I want to cry thinking about it, because they ran two feet in front of me at one point.

    High school days, I was a fan of Linkin Park.

    I've never been in a concert before. I have an allergic asthma and that night, I had very hard time to breath but I accompanied the songs like crazy . I couldn't speak for four days. It was worth it so yeah, I will never forget that concert.

    The group was called Drum Tao. The ticket was expensive for me, but I bought it anyways. It was the most astounding, breath-taking experience I've ever had. It's something I'll never forget. The beating drums, the wonderful culture they displayed, the humor in their expressions...
