    When I was 18 a good friend asked me at a party if I had any plans for the next 4 days (I didn’t usually make plans a that time, other than work - just went where the days took me) and the next thing I knew we were on a greyhound from Calgary to Vancouver)

    Ffwd through the trip, we hopped a ferry to Nanaimo, spent the night, then went back to Vancouver - had tickets for Pink Floyd.

    Up to this point we’d had like 2-3 hours of sleep between us. Went to BC Place, queued up, got in, concert started, fucking incredible, those guys are brilliant, sounded amazing, but very calming and sedating. I started falling asleep. My friend shook me, handed me a bag, and told me to go eat these in the bathroom. Stuffed them in my pocket and went to the can when the intermission started, lined up for a stall and waited for my turn. Sat down on the can and pulled out the bag - mushrooms.

    So I ate 1/2 the bag, around an 1/8th of an ounce.

    BANG BANG BANG “HURRY UP MOTHERFUCKER!!!”

    There was the sound of a struggle, some thuds, and then quiet.

    I got up, exited the stall - guy is laying on the ground bleeding a bit, and the guy behind him apologized to me, sorry that guy was being a dick, if you want to kick him in the head for being a dick, please do. I didn’t, just told him to chill, went back to my seat.

    Still sleepy, start nodding again, when an arm reached out of the guy sitting in front of me’s head. That was startling enough that I woke the **** up. What seemed like a week later the concert ended and we headed to greyhound to head home.

    The first time I saw Creepshow the barricade between the stage and the pit collapsed and about 30 people fell on top of me. I got dragged out unconscious by a bouncer and when I came around I continued drinking and went back into the pit :) I don't need drugs to have a good time :imslow:

    The only interesting experience I've ever had at a concert was paying 3 dollars for a can of soda when I was used to paying 50 cents for one. :confused:

    I feel asleep in a Bon Jovi concert.
    After a long day and a late start the first couple songs got everyone pumped, but then he started playing songs from his new album crossroads, which promptly put me out. Woke up for the encore.

    I went to see Judas Priest in Edmonton some time after I had gallbladder surgery. I was well enough to travel, but I wasn't keeping hydrated like I was supposed to be. I went with a friend and my bf at the time/Witchhammer. We were close to the front when I guess I blacked out. I didnt even feel it coming. Ex caught me and the last thing I remember is being at the back where not as many people were around and people asking if I was okay. I was able to enjoy the rest of the show with no complications.

    Another friend and I had beers with the band members of Carcass when they came for the Noctis Festival one year.

    A friend and I drove to Edmonton to see Guns n Roses at Commonwealth Stadium. We had a couple 40s of rye and a few grams of weed and some hash when we left, when we got to Edmonton it was all gone.

    I remember a moment, the band dragged a couch on the stage and they jammed Patience like they were in a living room just chillin.

    That’s the only thing I remember about that day after we got out of the car. Last time I ever had more than 2-3 drinks or a puff of a joint at an actual concert. I did get pretty wrecked at a few bar shows after that, but never unless I’d already seen the band at least 2-3 times sober. Paying to miss a concert I was stoked to see wasn’t something I was willing to repeat lol

    Seeing guns n roses before they imploded would have been a pretty solid memory, I’m glad like 70000 other people were there too, someone is bound to remember more than I do :imslow:

    I was stunned when I realized how many people Commonwealth can fit, McMahon stadium is a joke compared to Commonwealth or BC Place

    All of the concerts I've been to in Calgary were held in the saddle dome.
