In Spinal Tap when they all come up in those tubes / pods or whatever and the one dude's door won't open...that was funny.

Sorry, back to the thread.

These aren't band mistakes, but they crack me up...

I have a 92 ABB show (I can't remember the exact date) but someone in the audience (it's an audience tape) keeps shouting for "Southbound" through the whole show.

Then, they finally play "Southbound". The first thing I heard when they're done, is "PLAY SOUTHBOUND"... I was wondering where that guy was for the past 8 minutes of the show...

The other great thing is after "High Falls" or something on one of the June 2000 shows I have, someone shouts out "YOU ROCK DICKEY!!!" Well, apart from the fact that Dickey isn't anywhere on that show, it's also halfway through the show... I'm surprised the guy didn't realize Dickey wasn't there!

The first time Jimmy Herring sits in with the ABB in '93, Warren introduces him as Jimmy Ferring... Until they correct him.

"I always get a chuckle when I hear Gregg talk about being in Boston at Great Woods/Tweeter Center shows. Sure, it's only 30 Miles and it sounds better than "It's great to be back in Mansfield again!" - it just amuses me for some reason...."

All bands do that at various "Chicago" venues all of the time. You know venues that are in different cities, but near Chicago. In fact, I used to hear that at Alpine Valley in Wisconsin all the time. THANK YOU CHICAGO. And I'd be thinking, "dude, you're not even in Illinois!"

quote:
saw buddy guy a few months ago and when he played Hootiche Cootchie Man, he stepped away from his mic so everybody could yell "Son of A Gun!". He did this without warning so nobody really sang it. H then says somthing like "a Aww i'm not gonna let you f**k this one up!" so he started the song again and had everyone sing. He was pretty goofy the entire show, lot of fun!!


Nobody gets the crowd into it like Buddy. He did the same thing when he opened his show in Madison, WI a few years back. He walked out, started singing the opening number and staring at his feet. Then he queues the crowd to sing the titular line of the song "i just want to make love to you!" which they got right, to which he finally looks from his shoes to the crowd and says "hello, Madison." One of my favorite concert moments.

Right after that BB King took the stage and tried the same thing on "Caledonia". He gave the crowd three chances, but every time the lights went up to queue the crowd to respond with a "CALEDONIA!" the crowd just started cheering as if the song was over. That's one where the audience f'ed it up.

Well if we're talking about concert moments we heard but weren't there live...one of my all time favorite Keith Moon moments, of course 'meant' to be funny, when trying to get the crowd quieted down for the beginning of Tommy..."Quiet please (tap, tap, tap of a drum stick) quiet please...have a little respect, it's a F**CKING opera"
