My dad took me to see George Thurogood & the Delaware Destroyers at the Philly Spectrum when I was 8.  
 I was 10 when I went to see Duran Duran because I actually liked them   :eek:  
 
 My son's first concert at 18 months: Bob Dylan at the Calvert County Marine Museum.  Since then we have seen Elvis Costello; Guster, Rufus Wainwright & Ben Folds at Wolf Trap as a family.  Jake is a pretty laid back kid at age 3 and loves all kinds of music.  I was actually considering taking him to see Wilco but I figure leave the serious rocking out to mom & dad.

my first:
 marilyn manson / jim rose circus / nine inch nails @ hampton coliseum (94)
 
 my first @ 930:  the orb may 97
 
 
 i never really bothered to try to go to shows before 94.  i didn't start keeping up with what was going on outside of my immediate area really until 97.
 
 i shouldn't have been so slack.  i missed out on a lot.

First concert was Iron Maiden's "Powerslave" tour in 1985 at the Aud in Buffalo. I was in 5th grade and my oldest brother took me. Twisted Sister was supposed to open but the drummers father died, so local Buffalo faves Talas filled in.

Hilarious....I saw him at some redneck heavy metal club in some godforsaken place called Pasadena maryland...it was his first tour in 88.  Circus of Power was opening up, but we missed them cuz we got lost as hell though.  Pretty cool show though.  I still have a soft spot for that first Danzig album, a guiltly pleasure I suppose.   I was a total misfit nut for most of my teens and 20's....
 
 A few months later he played at the old 9:30.  Maybe the most packed I ever saw the place except for maybe a Bad Brains show...
