Hey all, I was thinking about how psyched I am to see Pendulum open for Linkin Park in February and how lucky I feel to have seen opening bands like Silversun Pickups, Bloc Party and MGMT, which got me thinking... What is the worst opening act you've seen live at a concert? There's nothing worse than being at a concert and having to stand through a 45-minute set of music you just don't like. The impatience to see the headlining act only makes things worse. I can recall seeing Nine Inch Nails in November 2008, whose opening band was a Japanese psychadelic/experimental rock band named "Boris". The band's music was incredibly atmospheric and dream-like, which was probably great for those on acid in the audience, but it totally sucked the energy and mood out of the arena (for a brief time). I've never been to a concert with so many people standing around looking so confused and annoyed. It was agonizing having to wait through their setlist for NIN. Let's try and not do any band-bashing, mmk? Play nice.
