In the course of my life I’ve seen some awfully bad concerts. The worst ever was probably the Spin Doctors in the mid-1990s, who sucked worse in person than they did on a CD. That’s a tough trick.
A close second, however, was Chicago, which, after rolling through the 70s with some truly fantastic music, has spent the last three decades sucking as fiercely as one band can suck. Without the novelty that is a horn section, Chicago is playing Bar Mitzvahs in Topeka. Actually, Chicago might be playing Bar Mitzvahs in Topeka.
I digress. I saw Chicago in Newark, Delaware in 1992, and the above video pretty much captures the experience …
So what’s your worst concert experience? Please share.
