Yep, totally agree with above post, nail on the head etc....

Name me one old band/artist that is still worth checking?

I've seen Iggy Pop who gave more on stage than all the young bands I saw that day combined, and maybe Metallica still put on a good show (but I wouldn't pay to see them individually). Other than that ....

Seen the Peppers a few times in the past ten years, they were horrible each time

Pixies were amazing both times I've seen them in the last 5 years. And their new music is excellent.







And so on...

There is virtually nothing that would get me to attend another JA show. I had the chance to go for free the last time they came to Chile, and I didn’t go.

Same goes for the RHCP. I couldn’t care if it’s their last world tour.

But I would most definitely go to see Faith No More again, despite having seen them already 4 or 5 times. They were incredible each time.

I would happily go see them your with RHCP. That's about the only worthwhile circumstance I can think of. Just because of the history between the two bands.
Why?

What do you think you're going to see that will be worthwhile?

This is an honest question and not me just being my usual grumpy self.

Are you super looking forward to hearing Dani California? A whisper quiet version of Whores with PEW PEW PEW?

Some bands just stop being worth their ticket price. If they are going to play the same setlist as 8 years ago and play it worse than they did then, why are you going? For the reminder to not buy tickets again till 4 years from now when you'll say "ok, well, maybe this one last time" AGAIN?

Motley Crue, Poison, and Def Leppard just ripped off a million people who think they are going to relive their glory days in the 80s by going to this show for an evening where all they are going to see is strained vocals, fat old men, and 17 dollar beers they will complain about. Right before they say "Well it wasn't 89, but I guess I'm glad I went one last time"

There's old bands worth seeing. These aren't those.
For the same reason I saw them with Eric despite being over them. It was Jane's with Eric. For the same reason I saw them on the Escape tour. It was Jane's in the small theater I'd always wanted to see them in. It would be enough of one of those "just the right circumstance" to get me off the couch. But that's just me.

I'd also probably sit way in the back so I couldn't see Perry.

Killing Joke.

I know Panda and I keep flogging it to death (or it just feels like it?) but after 40 years, they are still so, so good. And SO relevant.

Their new stuff is good, but they don't/can't integrate into their set, but that's alright.
I've only seen them like 3 or 4 times in the last 10 years, and would travel the west to see them if they were in a small club within 500 miles....
:noclue:

Yeah, and Faith No More

FNM, Ministry, and KJ all still put on pretty good shows.

Yeah well, not saying that FNM don't put up a good show (I would go and see them - I will btw this summer), but don't tell me it's the same as it used to be.

I didn't see them in the 90's but a mate of mine did, and he put it like this.

Seeing FNM in the 90's was like dynamite, seeing them now is like a fire cracker (this was at a show a few years ago).

I saw the Pixies and I thought they were extremely boring. But apparently they've always been boring so I'll give you that ;)

Btw, has anybody on this board seen Nirvana live?

Who'd want the same show 30-40 years later from their favorite band?
Isn't that what we are arguing against?
:hs:

A fire cracker may even be better than dynamite. The band is in top form, still passionate and know what they are doing.

Old bands that still are OK:

Jesus and Mary Chain, Echo and the Bunnymen, Peter Hook. I'm seeing the Go Gos this summer!

The last time I saw Ministry, they were awful. Of course, this was over a decade ago when Al was on death's doorstep. Have they improved since then?

See, but would you be excited to see them? I think that's the point of the question. Like you WANT/expect to see a great show from a 30/40 year old band.
And even if generally enjoyable not just going for nostalgias sake.

I'd be excited to see Echo and the Bunnymen in a small venue near my home. I'd be excited to Janes (if they have a damn good new EP), in a small venue near my home. Wilco is the only band that I still travel for and very much still get excited for.

See, so the answer is no for you. Small venue near my house doesn't count.

And when I saw your janes comment, I spit up my coffee..... :lol:

Wilco doesn't really count, formed '94.

What if I said that I saw Nirvana in '90/91 at a scuzzy club in Portland, and no, not the infamous show at Satyricon where Kurt supposedly met/tackled Courtney at the show. And that I remember the show rather sucked.
:tiphat:

What would that do for you?

Then I'm more jealous of Panda seeing Guns n roses at small clubs 😉

Saw footage of a pre nevermind nirvana show, and it kinda rocked ... So, wondered if someone on this board had seen em ....

Heard the stores of early Guns, Janes, Van Halen but no one has mentioned Nirvana.
