    It's very hard to calculate in time, because I took a bus, plane, car, train, and walked at different points in the trip, but Google Maps says ~5000 miles/~6600 km (from my house to Paris, counting all the stops and detours I had to make). Sounds about right.

    The only time I ever saw them was in Belo Horizonte, Brazil in 2008, I went by bus and it took me 17 hours to get there.

    3000+ miles twice. Took a plane Mexico City - Vancouver.
    The second longest, plane Mexico City - Phoenix and then Phoenix - Seattle

    No doubt I'll do it again and again!!

    About an hour, but I've seen them 3 times. When I was 17, I pushed my way to the front row and the crowd moshed and my ribs got hurt so badly it took half a year to fully heal. But it was totally worth it!

    I think the longest single trip was to Zagreb, about 18-20h in the bus, then short nap and shower, the concert in the evening and a couple of hours after the concert coming back to Warsaw with the bus
    And our tours, of course

    I counted;

    Home -> Train station (5,5km) car
    Train station -> Destination train station (178km) train
    Train station -> Friend's house (8,2km) bus
    Friend's house -> Pub nearby (10km) bus
    Pub nearby -> Bus station (1km) legs
    Bus station -> Airport (164km) bus
    Helsinki airport -> Berlin airport (1274km) airplane
    Berlin airport -> Taxi to hotel (8km) taxi
    Hotel -> Venue (1km) legs

    Also a bit of skating in Berlin center city, approximated lenght; 2km ice skates

    But if you count two weeks constant touring, that tops the kilometres quite a lot! 8 shows, lot's of countries.

    On the other hand, the closest one so far;

    Home -> festival area (3,5km) bike

    Total; 3,5km.

    Hoping for the next stop in the future;

    Finland (home) -> Sweden, Stockholm (about 595km) boat
