  • What was the first "real" concert you attended?

    Mine was Queen and Billy Squire at the Philadelphia Spectrum in 1981. I was 15. Great show. That was my first real concert.

    Now, I say real concert for a reason. I mean, if you walked into a bar for a beer and and old washed up band like Toto was playing, I wouldn't count that. So, because I saw Andy Gibb at Six Flags in 1979, that doesn't count. I was really there for the rides.

    I saw Tesla and Poison
    didn't care for Poision, but Tesla was great.

    Not sure when the date was, It was in the late 80's

    There are no stupid questions, but there sure are a lot of inquisitive idiots.

      about 7-8 years ago I saw Styx live with Bad Company and someone else I can't think of now.
      2 months later saw them again (bought my parents tickets but my mom was sick so I went with my dad instead)

        It was a year and a half ago when I saw Hinder at the Salt Palace.

          First one was REO Speedwagon. I think I was around 10-12 years old, and left with a contact buzz.

                You were 15? That must have been, what, a couple years ago? I didn't think the Fugees were still touring then.

                Alabama. Twentieth Century Tour. Erie County Fair. 1999.

                    Ten should not even be here.

                    We are lucky to have them, they the battle make.
                    Ah, but the one. One of them is a warrior.
                    And he will bring the others back.

                      Kiss, last year before they took the makeup off. I was 14 or 15 in Sioux City IA. They cracked the ceiling of the auditorium.

                        Todd Rundgren's Utopia, Santa Monica Civic Center, 1977, on a Friday Night during the Academy....I smelled of a certain green-leafy plant substance that did not quite conform with my academy haircut.

                          Life may not be the party we hoped for, but while we're here we might as well dance.

                            haha... you too? Except back then it was still Great Adventure.

                            First concert was Eric Clapton in 1983, I think, I was 13. Went with a friends and her older sister, didn't know many songs, but it was a great show.

                              My first was Elton John on his "Yellow Brick Road" tour. Maybe 1976?
