YOUR FIRST CONCERT
« on: January 18, 2005, 05:07:00 pm »
My first concert was Twisted Sister when I was eight years old.  Me and my parents were living in Japan, and they took off for a fun filled week in Seoul.  I had a fifteen year old baby sitter who showed me my first nude-y movie (Porky's), and then took me to my first concert.  I was a little scared because I was into Neil Diamond and Olivia Newton-John.  I have never experienced anything like Twisted Sister before.  It was awesome!

Well, sorry for the redundency.  I haven't logged on in about a year.  Search option would be nice.  But you have to admit, it's fun to answer this question!

Was a freshman in high school, the Grateful Dead came to Merriweather which was right down the street from me.  Was a lot of fun, hung out before the show in the mall with all the tripping kids.  This was when they still did two good sets with songs that were not super slow.  1984.

My first was the worst concert of my life - I was 13 and HIM from Finland were playing one of their first gigs in Germany.. gosh, I was traumatized after that night.. it was like hell, to be in the middle of 2 thousand gothics who didn't care about being alive or going to die.. I just wanted to stay alive!!!!!

The Jacksons, Victory Tour, 1984 (or 85? Can't remember), 14th row on the floor.  I was eight. I went with my blind grandfather, who I'm sure didn't like the music but took me anyways because he knew I was a fan.

heh... my first concert was a bad Lyrd Skynrd tribute band called "Freebird" which played at a talent show at my school.
 
 My first REAL concert was The Who, sometime around the time "It's Hard" came out.
 
 And my first 9:30 show was Minor Threat and The Faith.  Good stuff.

Red Hot Chili Peppers w/ Silverchair and The Rentals opening @ USAir Arena. Don't remember if it was '95 or '96, but I believe it was in support of One Hot Minute.
