At times obstacles get in our way to do something as simple as assisting to the performances of those bands we love and adore can be. Obstacles like exams, work, parents, age, money, etc. which make us renounce to the opportunity of listening to great bands live. It has happened to me with a few bands (I say few bands because my country has not been graced with the visits of many bands), bands like Hatebreed, Six Feet Under, Soulfly, Megadeth, Iron Maiden (well, I wasn't even listening to Metal when they got here but I will blame my ignorance for missing them then lol), Judas Priest, among others.

Here you can share with your fellow metalstormers your sorrow, your frustration of missing those concerts. Do not forget to tell us why you missed them.

As for me, the last concert I missed was Dream Theater playing at our capital. Why did I miss these Progressive Metal deities? I had no way of getting into San Juan that night so I had to miss it.

Protest the Hero/Tesseract/The Safety Fire/Intervals. My friend bailed and I didn't really want to go alone, since I've got plenty of chances to see Tesseract headlining back in England and I really don't like PTH. That, and work.

Hasn't happened yet, but I'm probably not gonna make it regardless. The Carcass show coming up in March, it's on a Tuesday, and I have night class then.

So, in other words you didn't miss it, because you actually didn't want to go?

Nadja, because I forgot.

Oranssi Pazuzu, because I was poor.

About a dozen local gigs, because I was lazy.

I missed Mastodon and Kvelertak a month ago (or so) for the same reason.

Stupid memory.

I blame my brain. I think it's because I only discovered Nadja were playing in my town within a week before they actually were. I don't think my memory likes short term stuff.

My problem was the opposite. I knew well in advance but had exams to focus on nothing going on in my life so I actually have no excuse. Kinda kicking myself over that too. Even though I couldn't care less about Gojira, Kvelertak and Mastodon are some of my favorite bands these days.

Well wouldn't call this a miss; would be a waste of time if you actually went!

Extreme Noise Terror, Rompeprop, plus the best local bands nowadays (Filii Nigrantium Infernalium, Trinta & Um, The Quartet of Woah!, Besta).

Some friends won their way to the finals of a national competition to perform for a spot in one of Portugal's biggest Music Festival. I've decided supporting them by being there was more important than my only shot at seing ENT live. Plus, their bass player was my ride, he was upset as well.

Deafheaven, they were literally playing just down the street from where I live, but I had to go to some stupid mothers day thing and make cards instead. FUUUUUUUUUUUU-

Also missed Kyleasa because when they came the person I was planning on going with was on a softball trip and they were too far out of the way (geographically) to go to on my own, Megadeth because Dave Moustain is a tour canceling dick, and Iron Maiden, because while Adrian Smith gave my dad ticket's after interviewing him for his visa, he was legally forced to turn the tickets down. I've never actually gotten to see a metal band, my luck has been terrible.

Bumping because I'm really annoyed at myself.

So Tesseract and Animals as Leaders were playing on Monday. I saw it advertised and was interested, but ignored it because I wasn't sure if I'd be in the area when they played. Turned out I was, but I only remembered the gig the day before... after it had sold out.

The real kick in the teeth is that Insomnium, a band I wanted to see even more, are playing tomorrow and I've done the exact same thing, word for word. Knowing my luck, the next time I get to see them will be when Daniel Tompkins leaves Tesseract again and Insomnium finally put out a bad album.

Opeth last week or so. I had just seen Steve Hackett three days before so I didn't feel like driving up to LA again, and I didn't have much money or time to get another ticket for them. At least I was able to see them last year though.

Hah, I used to live in Atlanta. It was the best time of my life for metal concerts.
Then I went back to Brazil.

The last gig I lost was The Bunny The Bear because I just found out on the same day it was happening. If I had rushed with luck I could have seen it but it was too much effort... I still wish I wasn't that lazy on that day though
