I actually had an artist from UK say this too when he played some shows here. Only they said it was more Brits complained about a 45 minute drive. Like that's minimum for me to see anything decent
@Chicken0War, that’s about how long it takes just to park at most decent shows.
@Chicken0War, Man, I drove an hour to college for just shy of two years. It's a 45 drive to most anything where I'm at besides a Wal-Mart.
@Chicken0War, the longest I've gone was 4 hours. With the group of friends that came, the hotel room, and it being on Halloween night it was definitely worth it.
@ThatOneShortGuy, i did 3 and a half. Boston, St Patricks day, hotel and concert. Was a blast would do again in a heartbeat.
@Chicken0War, the nearest GameStop is 50 minutes from me, a 2 hour trip is literally no big deal
@Chicken0War, same here. I live an hour outside Chicago and Chicago being chicago there are lots of good concerts and shows that go on so an hour drive, sometimes more depending on traffic, is standard
@ThatOneShortGuy, I did a 4.5 hour motorcycle trip for a show this summer so much fun
@Chicken0War, A 30 minute drive is me getting to work.
@Chicken0War, I now live in the desert so if I want to do anything fun, it's a minimum 2 hour drive.
Fuel’s taxed beyond belief in the UK.
The cheapest I’ve seen recently is ~£1.10 per litre which is about $6.75 per gallon.
Someone's not having a very g'day mate
I drove from my home in Texas for 9 hours to college, and I was still in Texas
In Europe, 200 miles is a long distance. In the USA, 200 years is a long time.
Canadians aren’t at the end of their driveway for 3 hours
Texans be like, it's been 3 hours, and we're still in Texas.
@Shodai Hokage, ha! It’ll take you three hours to get from the northern suburbs to the southern suburbs in Perth mate
@Shodai Hokage, West Australians leaving Broome to drive to Perth. Only a 23 hr drive.
@Shodai Hokage, 3 hours... almost 1/3 of the way across Victoria...
@Shodai Hokage, 9 hours for me. Texas too big
@Mr Bombastic, biggest difference is Australia is a continent, so comparing it to Texas isn't really the same, since it's a state.
@Shodai Hokage, a kilometre is still a kilometre, also I’d be comparing Texas to Western Australia, which is a state.
I'm lucky I live near quite a handful of venues like the House of Blues because we get a lot of good bands that come along and they're all within a half hour drive
I've drove 8 hours for a concert, 3 hours doesn't sound bad.
I drive a collective 3 hours for work everyday, and 20 minutes just for groceries so this is normal. Barely anyone big comes near me, hopefully they come to New Orleans, but usually Houston or something. Either way it's not unusual to drive several hours for someone you really wanna see.
Luckily all the venues for concerts over here are walking distance from bus and train staions
