    I would love to, but I'm just trying to limit myself to one big show a month for now since I'm trying to save money for real adult stuff lol. Revocation is probably the one I'm most into on that bill and I've already seen them. At the Gates is playing the next night and I'm missing them too (but I've also seen them).

    I've got Blood Incantation/Immolation next month for my next big one. Can't wait for that one!

    After buying a house and planning for a baby, I can relate to this way too much at the moment. I wouldn't be at the show I'm at tonight if I paid full price for tickets ($25). I'm at least grateful moving away from a major city makes it easier to curtail my spending on activities like shows and bars while actually being able to afford a mortgage.

    Aka being a real adult sucks.

    Can confirm, I miss going up shows without looking at my bank account or thinking about priorities

    I totally get it man. Blood Incantation was insane the last time I saw them. Definitely a good choice.

    I recently got out of a long term relationship that tied up all my money, time and sanity for years. Now that I have the ability, I'm going to whatever I can, but I still hunt for discount tickets and have to skip some of the bigger, more expensive shows.

    I don't go to as many shows as I otherwise would because I live in the middle of bumfuck nowhere as far as tours are concerned. Next to nobody comes out here, and one of our major metal venues just closed up shop. Due to that pretty much any show means at least an hour of driving on the to and return trips, to say nothing of merch and what have you. As a result the ticket price usually ends up quadrupled whatever it was on entry, assuming something is close to the usual 20-30 dollar price range, plus gas and merch money since bands usually make dick from ticket sales AFAIK.

    It might be easier given that I'm post-college and lucky enough to not have to worry about rent due to living with relatives, but I'm still plenty busy between frantic job searching and other obligations. Oh well. At least I'm not totally broke 24/7 anymore.

    I won't give specific cities because I'm paranoid, but eastern Iowa. I lived in western Illinois until recently and that area isn't much better for tours. In Illinois most bands only go to Chicago and the surrounding area and in Iowa they either go to Des Moines which is a long ass drive for me, or they skip the state entirely (can't blame them).

    Yeah I'm pretty fortunate to live in a city that gets tons of tours. The problem is that I listen to so much stuff that there's often times 2-3 (or more) shows in a single night that I'm interested in.

    The Quad Cities and Iowa City ain't a bad area for tours from what I've gathered depending on where exactly you live. Closet Witch is pretty damn sick if you haven't checked them out.

    I've already seen them twice and they're amazing. I hope they play more new stuff!

    I look back at all the concerts I have gone to and wouldn’t take it back for the world, but at the same time that phase of my life is over pretty much except here and there. Having kids, a house, a job and going on trips, etc. trump seeing bands any day.

    Those are the exact two areas that I've seen most of my shows in, as it turns out! Lol. I've seen Closet Witch live once and hung out with their vocalist after the show for a bit, super nice person. They're not bad for sure but anytime a tour at all comes through is something of an event as opposed to bigger cities where shows every weekend or so is business as usual. That's what I mean.

    The biggest exception was when I made a three and a half hour drive to and from Des Moines several years ago just for Nekrogoblikon.

    Worth it.
