I just hope that some day soon I can say I've seen Crashdiet!

Reminds me of when they first played here in the U.S. It was apparently a warm up show before they played at the Key Club, but it was at a little asian restaurant with this tiny stage and terrible audio. I'm not from California so when I pulled up to the address I was pretty confused until I actually seen the signs advertising the show.

It wouldn't have been so bad but there was a curfew in that part of town and they got cut off before playing their final song, so it kind of ruined the night and Simon was really pissed off! They tried to kick out everyone, but a lot of people hung out and waited around to talk to the guys. It was really a bad impression of their first U.S. show

Then the next night when they played the Key Club.. they kind of got cut off too because they had to play a really short set since there was like 15 bands on the bill and the guitar cord Martin was using was noticeably shorter than he wanted. I also heard a rumor that they were shorted some money by one of the venues!

I was so disappointed and thought they would never come back after such a terrible impression! But when they came back this year to the Whisky it was a whole different story. Best concert I have EVER been to.

Only 1. NYC... I'd never listened to them prior. I went because bunch of my friends were going, and I'd been kind of curious about them because I knew several people who were super obsessed with the band... So I wanted to check them out.. I ended up really loving the show & went on iTunes to buy their stuff the next day. Can't wait for them to play here again. :)

(not surprised if you don't tho, people never notice me haha :P)


To be fair though...they might just have looked right over your head ;)

Good thread :) Really fun to read all the stories and cool to see that so many have been to the same shows as eachother :)

I've seen Crashdiet two times...

15 April 2011 - Lisebergshallen, Göteborg
3 September 2011 - Granny Goes Street, Falun

Can't pick out a "best one" of the two though. Since the first time seeing a band you like is very special...but they only got 20 minutes and the other time they had a full set :)
Meeting fellow DïetHeads from the forum at both concerts was of course really great :) And seven of them in two shows ain't that bad right :)
Hehe, had my "fangirl" moment after the show in Falun when the band had walked off stage and gotten into the merch booth, greeting the fans and signing stuff. Didn't think I was gonna react that way but I sure did suddenly have a hard time to speak properly xD I remember studdering to Martin "I woou would like ttto buy a cd" and he looked both surprised and happy like he was thinking "that's odd, I didn't know these young folks bought CDs" :P

After that I communicated via very small words and mostly sign language that I would like them to sign the cd. They amazingly enough got what I was trying to say and so I got all of their autographs. I was very pleased, the end :)

However I just wanna say that I think it's simply wonderful how a rather small band like this can not only give joy through their music, but also through all the new friendships they help making :)

Always remember that you are absolutely unique. Just like everyone else.

21 January 2011 in Sweden on the Generation Wild tour. Awful sound, But they played territorial pissings.

And all that is holy, holy shall be...
Let the light bless and
let these words proclaim the blessing.
Let the seal be broken and let the light prevail

August 16, 2012 in Las Vegas! It was worth traveling 3,000 something miles!

The band before Crashdiet weren't all that great. They were more of a death metal band and I'm not too crazy about that type of music. Crashdiet's show was amazing! Afterwards, I met them and they are the nicest people I've ever talked too! :) I can't wait to see them again if their closer to where I live :lol:

Rockin' Hellsinki last summer, they played first as opening for HCSS and Mötley Crüe. Me and my friends stayed up three nights before the show partying in Kaisaniemi Park where the consert was :lol: Good times! Crashdïet was mayby bigger thing for some of my friends than Mötley, so it was totally over our wildest dreams when the band came to hang out in the groud after their set! One of these friend of mine even got Simme's autograph tattooed! And yeah, we all would do everything again if Dïet would come back to Finland :lol: 'coz it has been over like 7 months and still memories make me smile. What's better than that!?

it's no longer a work of art
don't let the moment pass you by!

I agree, but we've already done Noice so we'll probably come up with something new in case we'd need to throw in covers :P.

I wanna cover & sing "The money will roll right in", the Nirvana version, check it out if you haven't heard it already, great stuff :)

Well seeing Crashdiet live seems to be quite difficult to me: first, I miss them in december 2011 when they came in Antwerp, then Peter has his surgery so I missed them during the shout it out loud in March 2012 ... to miss them once again during the same festival in october (this time for personal reasons) ... But I could see them at least (and for the first time) during the Hellfest last year and it was a pretty good show!!! And this year, I won't miss them promise!!!! lol

Mine are:
First was in Nottingham @ the basement - April 2011.
On the Wednesday 13 tour in November 2011 - Wolverhampton Wulfrun Hall, Nottingham Rock City and Leeds O2 academy.
Also Dublin and Belfast in December 2011
Last gig was @ Huddinge Festival in June 2012

It was a shame Crashdiet didn't play @ Shout it out loud early last year! My favourite gig was the my first one. The worst was at Belfast!

My first time was in Madrid May 2011, I was in the signing session the day before. It was in a pub, and after the signing my boyfriend and I were speaking ( with my poor english language) with Eric and Martin about Morbid angel and Opeth. The waitress gave them an awfull beer and we told them, but they liked it. Peter brought me a signeg t-shirt because my boyfriend asked he by email if he could do it. Simon was "busy with some girls" ( you know what I mean).
The second time was in Hellfest Jun 2012, I had to wake up early to saw them, and after at night I saw guns and roses and met Martin and Peter.
The next time will be Madrid May 2013, I hope.
