    Man, I don't know. Are we even in the right genre? I'll stick with it: Nickelback.

    That's the beauty of it, taking a shot in the dark.

    When you were in H.S.? That would've been the late 90s. Creed is too old.

    I'm gonna guess...Nine Inch Nails
    Creed was voted Billboard Rock Artist of the year 1998, 1999, 2000 But Maybe Vankl. is a Barry Manilow fan and we are all barking up the wrong trees.

    On a personal note I saw Creed December 1999 in Chicago .. The worst show I have ever seen... Scott Stapp was so F***** Up the band was booed off the stage.. The other members came out apologized and half an hour later Stapp came out gave some broke ass excuse sang a few more songs and that was it.. The crowd was going to riot.. the band said they would do a make up show but I'm still waiting for that to happen

    I remember hearing about that from friends. Never saw Creed in concert though, not really a band I cared for that much.

    Actually I personally hated them before the concert too. And that "show" didn't endear me to them either. I was there for the beer and because my wife loved that band.. I just enjoy live music of all types ...

    So here's a complete change of pace: Toby Keith.

    Let's see... a genre really would help, lots of music in the 90's.

    Shot in the dark #2: Hootie and the Blowfish

    Clue#3 - Alternative (Can't believe someone switched to country :p)
  • vankleekkwvankleekkw Posts: 404
    I am going to give a new clue each day making it a little easier each time. Clue#4 - The lead singer is bald
  • urbinourbino Posts: 4,517
    Somebody already said Smashing Pumpkins, so I'll go with R.E.M.
  • j0z3rj0z3r Posts: 9,403
    bald lead singer...? hmm.

    is it Live?

    Finally, somebody posted up what I was thinking from the outset. But I'm not in this game yet, so I'm just spectating.

    We got a winner!!!!!!
    Honestly I didn't think anyone would get it until the next clue or two, but congratulations. PM me your address and I'll get the sticks out on Monday.
  • j0z3rj0z3r Posts: 9,403
    I grew up on Alternative, so if there is anything I know, that's it.

    Pm sent! Guys, give me a little time to think up a question... I wasn't prepared to win this.
  • vankleekkwvankleekkw Posts: 404
    Thanks to all for participating and everyone had some really good guesses. For my first concert, Live was awesome. It was their Throwing Copper albumn.

    Everyone did have good guesses, since I have attended these guesses.

    The Offspring
    NIN - I actually fell asleep, but A Perfect Circle was awesome as an opening band.
    KISS

    Ok guys, I've got my question now... hopefully it is a bit more difficult than my last couple of offerings. I'm going to stay with the concert theme.

    So tell me, what was the last band I went to see live in concert? Here's a couple of hints, the band is around today with all the members from their best known line-ups, though they are best known for their 80's material. The concert was this year.

    Bonus: If you can tell me the opening band, I'll be giving a couple extra cigars as a reward. No hints will be given, however, for the opening act.

    And... GO!
  • rdnstnrdnstn Posts: 993 ✭✭
    I have two ideas. Don't know if either one is correct but I'll give them a shot. SO my first guess is...

    REO Speedwagon
  • j0z3rj0z3r Posts: 9,403
    No dice Ron. You'd probably have a hard time giving me free tickets to an REO Speedwagon show.
  • urbinourbino Posts: 4,517
    Van Halen?
  • j0z3rj0z3r Posts: 9,403
    Nope, but you're slightly closer with that one.

    Oh, and since I forgot to mention it, the standard one guess per person per day rule is in effect.
  • j0z3rj0z3r Posts: 9,403
    just a quick note, I've slightly changed the question as I noticed I said "all original members" when in fact that is not true, I've amended it to "all the members of their best known line-ups".

    Just wanted to clarify that, it really has no bearing on the answers thus far.

    And with that, I suppose we're due for a clue. This band was formed in 1976 in London, England.
  • rdnstnrdnstn Posts: 993 ✭✭
    OK, I will make my second guess.

    Iron Maiden

    I almost forgot the opening act, Lauren Harris (and Anthrax if you saw them in LA)
  • j0z3rj0z3r Posts: 9,403
    Ron, you monster.... nobody was supposed to get that for a couple days :D

    You made two guesses for the opening act.... I dunno about that.... Ahh, what the hell, I'll give it to ya.

    Pm me your address so I can get a little something out to ya.
  • rdnstnrdnstn Posts: 993 ✭✭
    PM Sent

    I had to put 2 guesses in there though because Lauren Harris is touring with them and Anthrax did the 2 shows with them in LA. I hope it was a good concert. I hear Iron Maiden is great live.

    Now I need to come up with a good game. Give me a day or two.
