It took me a long time to make a list of all the concerts I've been to and post it in the about me section. I'm talking about all the way back to 1964. Now that's all gone!?!?! I wish I had advanced notice of this so I could have copied it before you threw it away.

You can still get it. Go to your profile and settings and you can copy it out before they delete it. I had to do the same thing.

you can also use googlecache - my profile was younger in googlecache than in archive.org ;-)

Agree, would have been nice to be at least notified that this will be removed soon, and in general the sidebar was a nice thing that allowed you to customise your page a bit, creating a more community feeling.. But well, i'm probably too conservative ;)
Tip, tThere is a way to get it back, enter the URL to your profile in https://web.archive.org and pick a recent date, it should show an old version of your profile.
Edit: above comment is a better suggestion ;)

As long as it's 200 characters or under and doesn't use BBcode/HTML/anything like that, you can put it in your About Me section. In the settings, there is a box under where you type that shows you your old sidebar text.

I'm keeping it empty for now. If you can have only 200 characters without scripts or codes, what's the sense anyway?

Absolutely horrified!! As a user of last fm for the past 6 years, logging all the bands I've seen on my about me sections this is the worst! I also keep a physical gig log books but this is really bad and the site looks rubbish. just used it for new bands and logging gigs

Same goes for me, "only" 6 years though. Over 300 concerts, reviews, a collection of quotes and images, as well as customized "text" created from different band names. I cannot express how angry i am atm, the least you could have done was to notify us.

Same here. I've seen more than 550 bands. I'm writing them on Facebook now, but I can't post the link in the "About Me" section, so... It sucks

I agree completely with almost all comments stated above. Who know why they did this? Not only was it really nice to have a list of all the concerts where you have been but also for future concerts I looked at my last.fm concert recommandation agenda. That was the best concert agenda I had!
So please everyone give feedback to the last.fm and let them know that we really really would love to have our concerts back on our profile!
