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.

I really wanted to see orphaned land and bilocate when they came to the UK a few weeks ago but transport was a large issue for me as well as finding people to go with. .

I'm starting to consider going to gigs and concerts alone.

Not sure if this counts, was going to see Witchsorrow in Cardiff. But then watched Doctor Who in the cinema instead as have seen Witchsorrow before.

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.

Missed just about every gig for the last 20 months. It's called "having a small child and a wife only back at work part time" (I have to fly anytime a major band comes to Australia).

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