The "movies that look like they'd suck, but didn't" thread got me thinking about this. I have been going to concerts for, er, um, a very long time, and I have walked out of exactly one. It was the Pogues in the early 90s, and things were OK when the instrumentalists in the band were playing a few tunes at the start of the show...and then Shane MacGowan came out and started to sing. The "words" sounded like "gha#$%^&*kldsoxcign*&#@)wean*^%!dbel" (accompanied by a lot of drooling). Now I know that Shane has some problems with overindulgence, but I was *so* mad that a performer would take my hardearned money and then get so sh*tfaced he could barely stand up or speak coherently. What an insult to the fans who spent their time and money to come see you. I left after the second song - at least I think it was the second song, it was hard to tell. So what shows have you gone to and then walked out of? And why?
