Concerts can be a life changing experience.

When you finally get to see the musician who has played a massive part of your life standing before, you never forget it.

Or maybe you're just taking in a show because of an extra ticket, and it's just a night of jubilation.

It doesn't matter... there is nothing better than the energy of a live concert.

Unless that concert is tainted because the artist is a disaster.

And they turn what was meant to be a brilliant memory into an unforgettable nightmare.

Redditor iAmTheAntiPope1 wanted to hear about the shows people want their money back after attending. They asked:

"What's the WORST concert you have ever been to?"

I love concerts and I've been very lucky. I haven't had a bad experience. Yes, Adele cancelled but I had already seen her.

"Snoop Dogg 2010 Took him 4 hours to come out because he was watching the lakers Celtics finals. Then when it ended we walked outside and people were getting tear gassed."

Wigged Out

"The Wiggles last show in Brisbane (the original line up) my 3 and a half year old was crazy for them. She pooped herself in the first minute of the first song and then after I got her changed she decided the wiggles were the most terrifying thing she has ever seen. Didn’t even last the first half. What a waste of $80 plus $12 for parking. Didn’t even get to hear hot potato."

Fitty...

"50 Cent. Holy crap. We lived in a small Canadian crap town that was predominantly white and it was a big deal to a lot of people that he was coming. Show pretty much sold out. Dude has four or five other rappers perform as opening acts and then a guy who looked like 50 Cent."

"But didn't sound like him showed up and performed parts of songs for about 15 minutes and then walked off the stage. Literally 45 second parts of songs. It was amazing. People speculated for months afterwards that it wasn't actually him and that he ran into issues at the border."

Mudd

"Puddle of Mudd a couple years ago. They came on stage an hour late and Wes Scantlin was clearly f**ked up on something. He yelled at the audience to quote 'Suck a bag of d**ks' sang half the lyrics of two songs and stumbled off stage. Whole thing lasted maybe 10 minutes at most."

"Madonna @ Murrayfield Scotland in 2012."

"She was late coming on which wasn’t the best start. She was bloody awful singing live. The tickets were stupidly expensive and I’m pretty sure it wasn’t a sell out, there was loads of standing room left. She didn’t do an encore. Oh and the sound was terrible."

Oh Madge. I do have to say... as a true disciple... this tardiness issue needs to end. It's ridiculous!

Not into it...

"Metallica/Guns 'n Rose's tour, don't remember the year. They co-headlined and would switch who played first at the different shows."

"Body Count was the opener. Body Count played a good show. Metallica came out and rocked it. Guns n Rose's came out about 2 hours after Metallica finished their set, drunk, out of tune and generally not into it. We left about 20 minutes into their set."

Never Forget

"I was working as a stagehand for a Rockfest about 5 years ago, and the finale act of the entire festival was Rob Zombie. The show sold out and I was stoked to see a legend perform from side stage. However it was short lived, because after 1 and a half songs, Zombie's voice gave out and he had to leave the stage. There was a 3 hour waiting period and the audience was chanting for Zombie to come back out."

"But it never happened. The house told us to start tearing down the stage, and the crowd started to riot while me and the stage-crew went out front and began packing up the equipment. People were throwing stuff at us from the crowd, booing, and chanting (but I guess I would have been too if my $200 non-refundable ticket was wasted).Truly a memory I'll never forget."

Thanks Lupe...

"It would have to be Lupe Fiasco in DC two or three years ago. He played half his set and the just bounced without telling anyone. Even the staff were telling us he was coming back out. Probably waited like an hour and then the house lights came on and it was over. Thanks Lupe."

Oh Wu...

"I went to see Wu Tang Clan. Doors opened at 7, and I was there by 730. Show was supposed to start at 9. At 8 a DJ came on stage with his MacBook and played music 'to entertain us until the Wu is ready.' He played until almost 1am, and during this time he played six different versions of the song METHOD MAN."

"When the Clan finally came out on stage, you know who wasn't there? F**king Method Man. But I did get to watch my buddy literally pee on a guy who had punched a girl in the crowd, so it wasn't all bad."

"Amy Winehouse in Dubai, a few weeks before she died. She was so out of it she barely sang and left it to her backup crew to entertain the crowd. She was booed most of the concert."

It's highly believed that it is important to learn history as a means to improve our future.

What is often overlooked is that what is taught in history class is going to be very different depending on where you went to school.

And this isn't just internationally, even different regions of the United states will likely have very different lessons on American history.

This frequently results in our learning fascinating, heartbreaking and horrifying historical facts which our middle or high school history teachers neglected to teach us.

Redditor Acherontia_atropos91 was curious to learn things people either wished they had learned, or believe they should have learned, in their school history class, leading them to ask:

What isn’t taught in history class but should be?

So apparently we are in the endemic phase of this nonsense.

We have light at the end of the tunnel.

So what now?

Where do we go from here?

Normal seems like an outdated word.

How do we get back to normal though?

Is it even possible?

What are reaching back to?

Life pre-Covid.

Those were the days.

If only we could bring them back.

Redditor hetravelingsong wanted to discuss our new normal in this hopeful "endemic" phase. So they asked:

"What’s something random you miss about pre-COVID times?"

What do you believe?

Is there a GOD in the sky?

Is he guiding us and helping us?

Life is really hard. Why is that is a big entity is up there loving us?

Atheists have taken a lot of heat for what feels like shunning GOD.

What if they've been right all along?

Maybe let's take a listen and see what they really think.

The list of what irritates me is endless.
