The Bands We Want To See In Concert In Lubbock – FMX Staff Picks

Wanting a band to come play in Lubbock and actually getting a band to come play in Lubbock are two totally different beasts. We always want bands to come play in Lubbock, but there are always things that stand in the way of bringing the bands we want to see. Routing and cost are usually the two biggest factors standing in the way of bringing our favorite bands. That doesn't mean we can't dream just like you though. Everyone at FMX picked the one band they would bring to the Hub City right now, no strings attached. Check out the staff picks for the one band we'd bring to Lubbock this second.

Slipknot

Wes Nessman's Pick
 
 

They cost a lot of money are usually travel on massive tours, but Wes said if he could pick one band it would be Slipknot. We'll throw our horns up for that one!

Foo Fighters

Heathen's Pick
 
 

The Foo Fighters were also the Painman's original pick but he changed his mind because of their recent hiatus. No telling if the Foo Fighters will play another show, but the Heathen hopes their next show comes to Lubbock.

The Rolling Stones

Painman's Pick
 
 

Painman originally wanted the Foo Fighters but decided to go with the Rolling Stones. It would take the perfect storm to bring a band like the Rolling Stones to Lubbock. If they did come, we'd pay whatever the ticket price was, no questions asked.

Green Day

Driver's Pick
 
 

They're one of the hottest bands in the world and they're also the band Driver would want to see come to Lubbock. We promise Billy Joe that if he came to the Hub City to do a show, we wouldn't cut him short on time like at the iHeartRadio festival.

Motorhead

Rooster's Pick
 
 

Rooster's reasoning behind this pick? "It's Lemmy. It's Motorhead." Nuff said.

Red Hot Chili Peppers

Dale's Pick
 
 

Our boss made a solid pick with a band that desperately needs to come to Lubbock. The Red Hot Chili Peppers seem to be making a tour of Texas on their latest run of shows, but they keep missing the Hub City. Let's change that.

Rage Against The Machine

Bob W's Pick
 
 

Our digital guy decided to reach for the stars and get a band that plays the least out of everyone on the list. A RATM show in Lubbock might be the sickest show we've never had.

Volbeat

FMX Listeners' Pick
 
 

Every time we tease a show or announce one the name Volbeat comes up. When is Volbeat coming to Lubbock? Please bring Volbeat. Must have Das Volbeat. It's easier said than done but Volbeat seems to be the one band everyone one wants to bring to the Hub.
