    What are some your favorite concert venue's or places you would want to see a concert at?

    My favorite is Red Rocks. Ive seen tons of concerts there, best place in the United States IMO

    Here is some cool stuff at it http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Red_Rocks_Amphitheatre

    probably one of the more popular venues in my area is the marquee theatre in tempe. they usually have 5-6 shows a week. its a cool venue, but the sound quality is average.
    probably the best venue for sound is the mesa amphitheatre, altho usually only big acts play there.

    Redrocks is awesome. I like smaller venues though, the fox theater in boulder, the ogden, bluebird, gothic....you get the idea.

    LC Pavillion in Columbus is the best around here, IMO. Germain sucks nuts, and most everywhere else is a meh copy of the LC. I got to see Chimaira and Fear Factory there. Best show ever.

    The Gorge in Washington State is Great for outdoor places.

    Indoor Hammerstein Ballroom or Roseland in NYC I agree both great Venue's

    Rather small venue with space for like 1500 people. The sound is the best and they still manage to get some of the really big names.

    Smashing Pumpkins played there not long ago - tickets were sold out in 2 mins hahaha

    I wish the venues around here in Fresno were better. They're all crap and plus the last show I went to we all got maced and missed the headlining act..

    I actually thought Germain had pretty good acoustics. Beats the piss out of Blossom in Cleveland/Akron.

    No, I went for FF, I've been a fan since Demanufacture. I didn't really know much by Chimaira at the time, so that was an eye opener for me (and became the reason I listen to them now). 40 Below Summer opened, and they were meh live, decent music, horrible show, they played like someone beat the shit outta them with a sledgehammer. No energy at all. Slipknot sucked there though. They played a couple songs from Vol.3 (this was just before it was released) and then played The Heretic Anthem. After it was over, they started the opening of Surfacing and went into The Heretic Anthem again for some reason (alcohol probably). I fucking walked out with about 300 other people. It was bullshit.

    And yeah, the acoustics of Germain are good, for an outdoor venue, however, their food/drink/beer prices are fucking stupid, and they have some of the worst pricing of any of the Columbus venues. You can go to the LC or Newport and see some killer bands for a fraction of what Germain charges for a mediocre show.

    Don't get me wrong, what part of the show they played without fucking it up was good. But once they started Surfacing, I was like yeah, one of my favorite songs, and then it went into Heretic Anthem. I was like wtf? I figured they just screwed up and would start playing Surfacing, nope. I walked out, with like I said, like 300 other people.


    Right now, I want to see Tool (which isn't going to be anytime soon from what I've heard), I want to see FF again, and I want to see Chimaira again. There's plenty more, but those 3 would make my year if I saw them this year.
