I saw Black Sabbath (with Dio) in 2007 at a place called the Logan Campbell Centre.It's like an old theatre with a balcony upstairs.It's pretty much a concrete bunker and the sound quality was shite.I was disappointed with the choice of venues but I went anyway as I just had to see Dio and Tony Iommi etc.They were awesome....the sound quality not so much.I've been the martyr in previous years and not gone to concerts at this venue because of it's poor sound quality, but then I miss out on seeing a band I may never see again.Is it worth it the sacrifice?

I won't go to Deep Ellum.  I'm afraid of that place.  There are more violent crimes done to people there than any part of d/fw.

Definitely.  Chicagoland has tons of wonderful old theaters and some crappy new ones.  our biggest outdoor venue, the First Midwest Bank Amphitheater was built about 20 years ago and changed hands several times over the years because it is so horrible.  the site lines suck no matter how 'good' the seats are, the stage faces east so when the sun goes down the audience goes blind for about a half hour, and the lawn seats are like sitting in the next county.  they have a bank of speakers just for the lawn, so you get the stage sound AND the speakers, not at the same time.  it's painful to listen.

the last time we went there was for Ozzfest with Black Sabbath, Judas Priest & Slayer (2005?).  glad we did tho, cuz after the show we saw what now has become a famous ufo sighting called the Tinley Park Lights.  didn't think much of it until we heard Dan Ackroyd talking about it on Coast to Coast AM and then seeing a whole hour show about it on UFO Hunters.

Heaven & Hell plays the Charter One Pavillion next week and we're protesting going there because it used to be Meigs Field, the lakefront airport the idiot mayor tore up after 9/11 because he was paranoid about terrorists taking off from there to aim for Sears Tower.  if you have Flight Simulator, its on there.

and don't protest that venue....my sig is from the Judas Priest show there a couple weeks ago......only bad thing is they have a spider problem in the bleachers....get seats down on the floor. They were selling Heaven and Hell tickets for $10 at the Priest show.....no brainer.

hell, man, I know that's the REASON he gave, the little napoleonic bastard.  the casino is why they want to move the childrens' museum to an underground bunker in grant park and then turn navy pier into a casino.  daley and his old man have been playing Monopoly with this town for decades.  and the olympics bid is just their next dog and pony show.  it might be good for the city to have it here, but its an even better opportunity for him and his cronies to line their back pockets cuz the front ones are full.

the locust will refuse to play any show at a clear channel owned venue.  So if the tour that the locust are on is playing a clear channel owned venue i will not go.  Unless its the sickest show ever i will not go to any show that is at a club with an over like an over 100 capacity.  Go local/indie music!!!

yeah...went to the Priest show in bJuly at the Concord Pavillion here in Cali..

firs of all it was half the size of the Venue I normally go to..{Shoreline,MtView}..

2nd..was bout 2 hrs from where I live...I can got a nice venue 20 mins from my house or drive 2 hrs...
didnt like the way the venue sounded,the vendor area was way to small for the amount of people they serve,so the wait  was a lil longer then I was used too.the seats were small as hell,you were shoulder to shoudler with person nest to you..it was so un comfortable for us we opted for the lawn and gave up the seats...
so yeah I will past up The Concord Pavillion for Shoreline anyday...

Ba ha ha.
I saw Maiden at Concord in May last year.
I thought it was a funny little venue but it was my first overseas concert, first time I saw Maiden and I got right up the front so I had an absolute blast!
Talk about being in the middle of fucking nowhere though.
The neighbours wouldn't complain about noise as there aren't any!
It's even a 3 day hike from the carpark in to the venue itself!
I was a bit worried when ticket security asked me what I had in my pockets and was I carrying a knife!

Dunno. I saw Down at Bogarts in Cinci. Awesome for the most part, but when everyone started lighting up joints in a small venue it was almost unbearable.
