Suing LiveNation, not the band. Have to wonder if the venue would have been a better choice, for failing to control the crowd and not stopping them from surging into standing room only.

I also fixed your title.

I will say that, of all the live shows I've been to in my life, Lamb of God's show (when they were touring off Ashes of the Wake) was by far the most violent and aggressive that I have ever been to. Annoyingly so. The music was amazing and the performance was awesome, but the crowd was completely psycho. Not just moshing or "hardcore dancing" or "making a pit" either.

I saw them once, can't remember where, but they seemed to be encouraging that. It was very obnoxious. You couldn't stand anywhere and just watch the band.

:agreed:

Sadly, this is just where a lot of metal has gotten to, and it makes me avoid a lot of shows. I don't give a shit about pits and moshing, since I'm there to watch the band and listen to the music. I place the blame squarely on the shoulders of dipshits like Phil Anselmo, who spent years berating fans for not being violent enough. That's why we have all these jackasses who show up to shows specifically looking to hurt people.

Welcome to about 75% of gigs in the UK :lol:

I'm not into it at all but I'm tall so I can usually find a vantage point and get a good view.

I dont think its really anyone in particular that's caused it. It seems more to me like a bunch of soft guys getting to act hard for a while. Get their shirt off and see how many people who aren't looking they can punch...

Totally. Superjoint Ritual was one of the craziest pits I've ever seen. Phil kept stopping songs midway and encouraging the crowd to get crazier or they'll stop playing again.

You're not wrong.

Lamb of God shows are usually quite tame compared to a lot of shows I go to. Apparently every venue in the UK now doubles up as a dojo.
