Hilarious Concert Fails

November 23, 2013

In a perfect world, the show goes off without a hitch. You hit your mark when the pyro goes off; you spin your guitar over your shoulder in perfect unison with your bass player; you stick the landing when you do that backflip off the Marshall stack...but as we all know, nothing's perfect. We gently combed the internet for some of our favorite concert fails-- audience and performers. Do us a favor and learn from these folks, k?! We don't ever want to feature you on this blog for the wrong reasons.


Mind: blown. Banana: unconsumed.


What even IS happening here?!


Control Alt Delete.


Somehow I don't think this is the kind of advertising that Antares wants for Auto Tune.



To the dads of the world, you're doing great. Sorry you have to listen to this.






No, seriously?!!!


So maybe this is photoshopped-- it's still hilarious...


Davey does what he wants. Where he wants.



Bonus fail from the blog:

I've heard of playing behind the nut, but this? Whaaaaaat?!

    I saw linkn park at a show, the guitar player played “unplugged” have the show.  It was a guitar with a strat style input jack visibly no cable plugged in.  A year or so later the explode.

    The capo image is photoshopped, and the computer shot is obviously photoshopped.  And why didn’t you add the concert footage of Van Halen trying to play along to an out-of-tune sequencer on ‘Jump’? That has to be the funniest concert fail of all time!

    The fail here is that you posted this junk.

    What’s next, dancing-kitty videos? Skateboarding squirrels?

    I usually enjoy your blog, but not today…

    Does anyone else see the Wiggles as the crew of the Starship Enterprise gone horribly wrong?

    Yeah, the Nine Inch Nails one is actually part of the show. It pops up just for a laugh. Still funny out of context though.

    This whole article is disappointing to say the least. It’s something you’d see on a middle-schooler’s blog. I’ll chalk this one up to PGS falling into desperation to create more content even after running out of article ideas. Please go back to talking about gear.

    I think folks need to relax a little.. Funny stuff IMO.  I appreciate the effort PGS puts into this and they don’t owe it to us to make EVERYTHING educational.  After all, the email that promo’d this did have some other good stuff in it also.

    seriously guys,
    i have a sense of humour but i’m thinking you must be bored or something. this kind of stuff really belongs on some cheap as&‘d satellite t.v. channel and not on the website of a highly respected and deservedly popular shop such as yours. in a nutshell, this cheapens you. stick to what you do best.
