The twenty best concert quotes of 2012

Categories: Lists

Brandon Marshall
10. Bruce Dickinson of Iron Maiden, Comfort Dental Amphitheatre, 8/14/12

"We've got ten semis full of gear outside, and half of that stuff -- well, one semi's worth of stuff is still in the truck, couple of special effects we can't get in tonight, sad to say. However, with a little bit of application and a little bit of burning down, you never know, they might have to build an extension on the place next year. Who knows?"

9. Billy Corgan of Smashing Pumpkins, 1STBANK Center, 10/16/12

"I have been known to be fickle -- a flip-flopper, maybe. A bit of a gig flip-flopper. Then we get around to playing a few classics at the end. In the beginning, they were just really good songs, and now they're classics. See, the funny thing is now we're playing good songs that one day may be classics. Ironic, isn't it, to have lived that long?"

8. Esperanza Spalding, Ogden Theatre, 9/26/12

"The birds and crickets are hipper than all of us."

7. Anders Friden of In Flames, Fillmore Auditorium, 12/10/12

"Life is too short to be drinking shitty beer."

6. Dennis Lyxzén of Refused, Ogden Theatre, 8/22/12

"So far we're doing really well -- not the playing, but the fact that we're still standing up."
