El Pasoans Share Their Coolest Concert Experiences
Think of some of the shows you've ever been to; the feeling of seeing someone you've wanted to see is amazing enough. But sometimes you get more than what you expected. We've seen videos of fans partying on stage in El Paso before, but there are many more stories that we couldn't see. Some stories are truly unforgettable.
Speaking from personal experience, I've been fortunate to see some amazing concerts.
Being a huge Rush fan, seeing them live in 2012 in Phoenix was without a doubt one of my personal favorite concert memories. They recorded their Dallas show which later became a live album (you can see more live albums recorded in Texas here)
Another was seeing the Carnival of Madness tour in 2012; seeing Amy Lee perform with Halestorm was amazing.
But without a doubt the coolest was getting a signed guitar from Trans-Siberian Orchestra in December 2005. Not bad for a first concert.
But it's not about me, we wanted to hear from YOU.
That's why we wanted to know what was YOUR coolest concert experience. So that's what we did. We asked that question on our Facebook page & MAN... did we get a lot of cool experiences from both in & outside of El Paso, during the show & AFTER the shows.
We've seen people see crazy stuff happen ON the stage [like bonfires being set, lead singers nearly falling off the stage], some people were lucky to grab a drink with some musicians after the show was over, some were lucky to have some amazing backstage stories or meet & greet stories.
But you don't need to take my word for it, you can see what people have said [and some of the photos] down below.
