Public Enemy remains one of the very best live hip hop acts I've ever seen. I saw them a few times at DC's 9:30 club way back in the day when I got in with fake I.D.

I was lucky to survive.

It's great when a band is so kickass and have something important to say.

How about a Public Enemy/Rage A. The Machine/Beastie Boys tour?

A Public Enemy/RATM/Beastie Boys tour?

You just listed three bands with the worst-behaving audiences ever.

3:32 PM Spiffy D said...

Yeah Sauce, you're right about the audiences.

But one can dream.

However, I've been to crazy violent shows where the bands have been able to sort of calm the fans down by threatening to stop playing. And not serving alcohol would be a BIG help.

"You just listed three bands with the worst-behaving audiences ever." ------- I don't know where you guys live, but I can only speak of Public Enemy. I went to a PE concert in Houston during 2007 and I must say that everyone was well behaved. The crowd was more my age (30-40+), and seemed more socially and politically motivated. In speaking with the couple next to me, we all mourned over the past days of rap with a conscious and agnonized much of the rap that passes as music today. I assure you, we 40+ year old people were NOT brandishing weapons of any kind nor throwing punches. But that was just Houston, which happens to be one of the most crime ridden cities in the US.
