Since we've had an "All Time Favorite Concert Experience", how about everyone chiming in on their first concert?

For me it was the Doobie Brothers on their original farewell tour in 1977.

I'm not proud of this but for me it was The Monkees in Chicago in the 60's. :o

THE MONKEES!
I think i would be proud to say it. Were they a REAL band- maybe not, but the music that came out of that collaboration was impressive and still is today. Some of the less popular stuff is their best- "Zor and Zam"
How cool.

My first concert was a band called Bread ("Jelly" opened for them). Really,really wimpy stuff!

Yikes, not sure if I remember my first concert!! Either n'sync or a lynyrd skynynd/ zz top concert. Yes I know complete opposites. I went with two different friends. This would be like 97 or 98.

Cheap Trick - Syracuse 1980. I wanted to go to Kiss 2 year earlier but since I was only 10 my Mom said no. Seems cool of her now to let me go to see CT when I was 12. But I was pissed off at 10. I wanted to see Kiss damn it!


You freely admit that?...

I would have LOVED to see MC Hammer! I bet it was a show!!!

I actually had a real experience like that at a Judas Priest concert and was really confused.... for years until I found out Rob as SUPER GAY.

Again MC Hammer would have been less gay. ;)

It was either Metallica or Overkill in 92. I saw both but can't remember which was first. Overkill was better because it was in a club whereas Metallica was in a seated stadium :(

Yeah, RUSH! September 12, 1982 The "Signals" Tour. Back when Geddy still played his 4001 Rickenbacker (got a black one just like his when I was 16) back in '83. Laser lights and a 10 minute Neil Peart drum solo. (Back in the day drummers often did that in concert. No one really cared except other drummers.) Kicked ASS!!!

First concert was KISS... full makeup, jamming their asses off!!

Was also the first first time I ever got high. I was young enough my Dad had to take me to the concert The announcement came over the sound system that no smoking was allowed and once the lights went out people were lighting up all around us. He said I said something like all these people were breaking the rules then I just watched and listened in a daze. I remember the concert but not the buzz.
