Default have you ever seen Damien live?

I'm just curious, how many of you saw him live and how many didn't have that blessed occassion to see him perform live..

I haven't.. been a fan of his music since '06 and he was a never on a tour anywhere nearer than 1000 miles.. I guess now, if he'd come to Prague, I'd go through hell to get there.. doesn't seem that far anymore ( not that I moved about 200 km closer to Prague this year )

The first time I ever heard his music was at his concert in 2006 in L.A. I went for a friend's birthday with a big group. I fell asleep because I had been up since four that morning. I didn't connect with the music at all because I was so tired and pretty much missed the entire concert. I listened to his C.D. a week or two later and fell completely in love. I'm dying to hear him live again and actually appreciate it haha

I was fortunate to see Damien in Philly in 2004. It was phenomenal! I'd pay almost anything to see him again.

Yep, I was at the '07 Munich gig. Nice experience, especially because of the company I had

Nope. Almost did. I was going to go to a show in 2007, but it fell on Mother's Day and my mom is really crazy with tradition and such. So instead we drove two hours to buy flowers.

I've seen him 4 times now, but never with Lisa.

Toronto '06 (solo, acoustic); Toronto '07 (twice); Montreal '07 -- they were all great, but that first show (where my friend stole me a candleholder from the stage. god love the security guard that saw him leap onto the stage and walk away with it) and the one in Montreal were phenomenal (best encore ever)!

Rather appropriately, I've seen him live 9 times (1 in Ohio, 3 in Pennsylvania, 5 in NYC). Supposed to be 10 but livenation lost my ticket in the mail. Chatted with him/band after 7 of those but the other two times were out of state with someone else driving and they didn't want to stay after.

Went to see his gig once in Paris and once in Strasbourg, with miss Hannigan included in the pack. I'm happy I could saw this before the "accident". Saw him after march 2007 (when the "accident" happened), 5th of july, 2007, Paris again (Olympia), and it was good too. Total : 3 times.

But never got the chance to talk to him.
Waiting for this occasion to come the sooner as possible.

I saw him in Nashville at the Ryman. The Ryman is such a beautiful venue and the perfect place to see an artist! The sound was amazing! I think I remember not expecting it to be so loud, but it really was! He opened the show with the piano version of "Rootless Tree", which sounded incredible in the quiet, wonderful venue that is the Ryman Auditorium.

Yes, the brighton dome!!!!!
Excellent acoustic, magical night.
Delicate was sung "a capella" with no microphones.

It's a pitty there's no recording (as far as I know) of that night.

By the way, it was a kind of sadness when I saw a Huuuuge hammer limusine waiting for him at the end of the concert.

Sorry, can't seem to spell 'disapponting'.

Well, it was about 1-2 weeks after Lisa was out. It was not the same. The venue was too big, the audience too chatty, I arrived too late so couldn't see (or hear!) much, the set list was too run of the mill... Just disappointing after the first life-changing gig experience s'all.

It wasn't a HUGE venue, just larger than the first time (but same as 3rd time, but that was seated and more focused, AND THE AUDIENCE WAS QUIETER!) and the whole feeling was...off. Can't describe it any other way.
