Most Memorable Concert We’ve Seen In Lubbock – FMX Staff Picks
There have been some unreal concerts come through Lubbock. Some from many years ago while some coming this year. Lubbock is always a town that bands try to rock a little harder at because the fans truly appreciate the music here more than most places. That got us thinking here at the station, what are our most memorable concert we've seen in Lubbock. There have been a lot of great shows for us to choose from, and this wasn't a quick process. Without further ado, here are our staff picks for the most memorable shows in Lubbock.
He can't remember the exact year or date of the show, but the first time Korn played the big stage in Lubbock was hands down Wes' favorite show. He took over 24 hours of mulling and arguing with himself to finally come to the conclusion of this show being his most memorable.
Same exact show as what Wes was thinking. It took the Heathen a whole three seconds to say Korn for his favorite show. Once again, no one can remember the exact date of the Korn show, but it was something that remained in a lot of people's hearts here in Lubbock.
2002 Jagermeister Tour
Painman quickly recalled his most memorable concert as he went back to April, 2002, to talk about the Jagermeister Tour with Coal Chamber and many more. The reason he picked it was because we all witnessed Coal Chamber break up on stage following a fight between Dez and Meegs.
July 5th 2001 was the perfect storm for Lubbock. The ultimate lineup to ever hit the Hub City blew through to kick off the opening of the Lone Star Event Center. The lineup consisted of Disturbed, Papa Roach, Slipknot, Linkin Park and Mudvayne. Nuff said.
Rooster recalls the 2005 show that brought both Slipknot and Slayer to Lubbock. His reasoning for the show being his most memorable; "Dude, it's Slipknot and Slayer."
Our boss Dale said pick any Papa Roach concert and it's his favorite/most memorable/greatest thing ever. It's hard to argue with that because P. Roach does bring that extra Umph when they come to Lubbock.
Reverend Peyton's Big Damn Band
Our digital guy said his most memorable show was seen by maybe 20 people. Back in 2011 at Bash Riprock's 2, the Reverend Peyton's Big Damn Band brought the most exciting blend of punk, rock, country, blues and just about every other genre of music you could think of to the Hub City. He played the show with walking pneumonia but still destroyed the small crowd. Killer show that everyone missed out on.
