I don't mean the shows where you were still able to walk at the end, but the ones you just could not take and left. Shows where you and the rest of the crowd managed to get the band off the stage count.

Believe it or not, I walked out of a CSNY reunion show, late 90's, during Wooden Ships, because Steven Stills sounded awful, his playing was crap, and his voice was completely unintelligible, and Neil Young was overplaying and showboating, stomping all over the gig. Regretted it the next day when I read that Crosby and Nash pulled the show together and did a stellar acoustic set.

CSN at the San Diego State Ampitheater



Really bad stuff here sad to say....Very, very off key and out of synch....You would lean forward and look down the aisle to see if anyone else was hearing what you were hearing and........notice a lot of people making faces and flinching......Walked out, terribly disappointed.

Quite a few - I don't wait around if I'm not enjoying it!

Dan Baird, The Answer, Simon McBride, Johnny Winter and, most recently, Beth Hart are a few.

David Bowie.
JJ Cale. Band was an hour late. No sound check.
Waited 6 songs, and couldn't take it anymore.

A few thousand of us managed to get the Amazing Alex Harvey Band off the stage after 3 songs! Only time I've seen a whole venue boo an act off stage.

only recall leaving early on 2 shows, REO SpeedWagon at Poplar Creek in Hoffman Estates, IL. 1981, a little too wimpy for my taste back then and the huge crowd, bailed during encore break Def Leppard 1983 in South Bend, had enough of the poseing and pretty boy act, again left during encore break, had seen them in '81 with Pete Willis on guitar and they rocked pretty good. Dis-honorable mention 1978, Aerosmith 1978, terrible sound and performance,though we did stay til the end. The evenning was not a total loss, as Bon Scott and AC/DC had openned the show and were fantastic!.............Peace...........joe

The closest I've seen, I think, is Run DMC at the Crackdown show at Madison Square Garden in '85.

The audience was there to see the ABB, CSN and Santana - they didn't stand a chance! I thought it was kind of poor from the crowd as it was a benefit gig.

Off the top of my head I can think of a few. moe. at the Chicago Theatre in '07 or '08. I had just seen them a few years prior and I though it was really good. This was terrible. They played two nights. Had tix to both shows. I left the first night after about 45 minutes and didn't bother the second night.

Fleetwood Mac about 20 years ago outside of Detroit. The only people I had heard of in the band at the time were Mic Fleetwood and Dave Mason (who I really like). When they played Dear Mister Fantasy, which is one of my favorite songs, I went to the food court to wait for the next two bands. It was awful.

The only times I have walked out is when the artist feels the need to deliver a strident left-wing political lecture. Eric Burden and Manzarek/Krieger. Manzarek was particularly boorish.

Of course, most artists are politically left and I can tolerate some of that leaking through into the show (Patti Smith, Neil Young), but I paid to hear music, not get an unwelcome political lecture.

Walked out of my Second Allman Brother show in 1980 in Oakland...The had the "Keytar" player and it was simply awful

I did see Brent's First show.....Great show....saw the dead probably 10 times...only walked out the first show

Saw Jerry probably 25 times...walked out of 2 or 3 of those shows

Coheed & Cambria at the 20th Anniversary of Christmas Jam. I have no idea why they were there, but found them to be awful. We walked up in the concourse and waited until they were finished.

Steven Stillls. His voice was shot and he was just way too high to even be onstage...

Really? Not having been there I'm in no position to doubt you, but I really like the IL from this show. I was at Wanee a couple of weeks previously tho' and must admit to being unimpressed with the first show there..... maybe someone will disagree with me on that?
Back to the original topic, Rush in 1976, overblown nonsense I thought at the time, only went for support act UK alsorans Stray. Would probably enjoy Rush now.
Jonny Lang at the HOB in New Orleans in 2008.....God, that was terrible.

I know I've mentioned this before, but I saw Johnny Winter in 2000 and thought the guy should have been in hospital back then, never mind still being propped up to excruitiate his way through shows 13 years on!

........got to disagree with you re. Dan Baird tho' Gordon.

I left a Doobie Brothers show after seeing the opening act, the Dixie Dregs.

I would have left a Weather Report show (it was agonizing) but had gone with someone else who had the car keys.

One Upsmanship Department:

I fell asleep during a Grateful Dead show some time in '74

My wife fell asleep during TWO Grateful Dead shows in Houston.

One of them we were sitting in the 10th row with some radio station DJ friends of mine.


Years later I got even.

Took her to see Genesis at the Carrier Dome.

I fell asleep.


I walked out of a Beach Boys show in 75.

They were onstage wearing fur coats and singing Let's Go Surfing Now and we were burning outhouses to keep warm.

(Outdoor festival, rained most of the day, cold as hell after the sun went down.)

Doobie Brothers had finished their set with fireworks during China Grove.

Beach Boys didn't stand a chance following the Doobies.

I was there and did the same.

I alos took a break during Travis Tritt. We decided a "Tritt" was 45 minutes you would never get back.

I saw the Mule with Skynyrd and Nashville Pussy in Nashville. I went to see the Mule, it was the last time I saw Woody perform as he left us just a short time later. Nashville Pussy was horrendous, the Mule was spectacular, and Skynyrd was just awful. Left after a song or two.

I have a copy of that Mule show. It's still good.


Nashville Pussy opened or I wouldn't have been there for their set. They sucked like a Dyson Ball.

I also walked out of a Jeff Beck show when he was using a lot of loops and electronic gear. Jeff Beck is good enough to play without all that **** .

I went to a Derek Trucks Band/Eric Johnson show at the TLA in Philly. DTB opened and played a great set. Could only take Eric Johnson for 3 songs. The plus side in leaving early was that I met Derek and the band by their tour bus. Almost left a Dickey show after the first set in Collingswood NJ a couple years back. The show was awful. Looked like Dickey had a little too many but I stayed until the end.

The first was Van Morrison at Jones Beach in the 90s. He was horrible, and I had to work the next day.

The other was the ABB at Red Rocks in '09. The band was great, but we were in the reserved seating area, and were swarmed over by people who came down from the GA section behind us.
