I'm sorry to be a b#tch but... I'm still in the meatalhead team right? If you are gonna be up front for a metal show, you'd EXPECT drunk guys flying towards you!!! If you can't handle it then save your money and sit in GA seats. One of my best friends just got a black eye and a big goose egg on her head at a Deicide show, BUT SHE WEARS IT WITH PRIDE!!!! Being broken in the pit is a badge of honor, especially if you were not that hurt. Now the whole being shocked by the chairs thing....sounds like a lawsuit waiting to happen. I would call the venue and let them know that happened, for the safety of others.

Mudvayne usually puts on a good show, hopefully the music was hammerin. Sorry to hear about the bad experience & hope you heal up very soon... got to watch the pit. I got into one at a GWAR show a couple years ago, talk about a grinder! I've learned to wear my leather to pits, it really helps protect. Well wishes to you & your friend.
Jerks in the pit are the worst!!! I got thrown 15 feet IN THE AIR at a Pantera concert by some drunk jerk and I was with three giant guys! This jerk came up behind me and just tossed me!! Couldnt move my arm for almost two months! Dont let it turn you off to shows tho, lots of awesome people there too!! Hope you heal soon!!!
Work like it's all up to you!! Pray like its all up to GOD!!!!

Oh I'm so sorry that happened to you! I hope your leg and foot are alright. Those injuries are never good come exercise time. Yikes! Doesn't sound like you had much fun at all.
No I'm not used to injury at concerts. I've been clocked once or twice by a crowd surfer's foot but it wasn't bad at all and sure as hell didn't ruin my experience. I usually only go to small venues to see bands like Joan Jett, Motorhead, and White Lion where I find a tamer crowd. We all get squished up near the front still but no moshers and very few drunks. I have to say that I also enjoy seats for the bands still playing the large venues. Nice personal space and usually a great view, and hey, cup holders! Always nice! hehehe great to be able to put down your beer when you've got both hands up and you're screaming your heart out. I hope you heal quickly and I hope this doesn't turn you off to all concerts. Try and bring a large male friend if you still want to go to the rougher spots. They deflect drunks quite well.
I brought my friend's sister with, we both got hurt.
We were up front towards the mosh pit should have known, but it got out of control last night. This drunk guy went to punch another guy, that guy ducked out of the way and the drunk guy punched my friend square in the face. She felt it right away and asked me if it looked bad, I said no at the time, when we left though, her whole face was swollen & a swollen lip. I tried my best to protect her and grab her to hang on so she wouldn't fall over. Then later on a bunch of drunk and not-so-drunk guys got out of control and pushed me over a chair. Not fun, my left foot feels like it's sprained and my whole right leg from my knee up is swollen & bruised. On top of all that, my friend says: Tina don't grab the chairs, but I did to hold myself up from being pushed over and I got shocked from them. Not just a little either, but you've seen the Bugs Bunny cartoons like that. She said it had something to do with all the beer on the ground and the metal on the bottom of the chairs and a current running through. It hurt so bad, I could see light and when I grabbed for the guy in front of me, I shocked him. I'm too old for this *hit, at least I felt like it last night. I'm sure you are all used to it right? Even hubby said he remembers those days, I've never been in a mosh pit until last night, probably my last time too. I went to have fun & rock out, not get beat up, oh what a night.
