This is kinda started from another thread but a very good question.
Who did you see for your very first concert, where and with whom?
Mine was Bondie, Heart of Glass Tour, Greek Theatre when I was 15. It was a birthday present from my girlfriends and 6 of us went.
This was the start of what was considered punk rock and I was shocked by the look at the time. I had never before seen a baby diaper pin through the cheek of a person. hehehehe Now that would be considered blazee and wouldn't get a second look.
Jimmy Buffet, Long Island New York in either 87 or 88. So that made me 11 or 12. Jones beach, I think?? I just remember the stage being on the water and fish jumping EVERYWHERE!!! My aunt was mortified when "Why don't we get drunk and screw" was played....she tried to cover my ears!! LOL!!! When my Mom, home in CA heard we were at the show she was not happy Hahahahaha!! Now I am a PARROT HEAD!!!
Mine was Testament/Megadeath/Judas Priest - Pain Killers in San Diego at the Sports Arena.
I said on another thread that Stagecoach will be my 11 year old's first concert, but technically speaking, she saw Pink Floyd at the MGM Grand in Vegas when she was 3-4. She of course doesn't remember it though, so we won't count it.
She was adorable, sitting on the edge of her seat and rocking, it looked like she was banging her head to "Another Brick In The Wall"! That's my girl....
Michigan State Fair in Detroit in the 60s. Not sure who I saw in what order - but included Cowsills, Fifth Dimension, Arthur Godfrey, James Darren, Sergio Mendez, Paul Revere & the Raiders, Ed Ames, Willie Nelson, and many others who I will never, um, forget. In the 70s at the same state fair I saw Loretta Lynn, Buck Owens, Roy Clark, Bob Hope, and Roy Rogers & Dale Evans.
I'm LOVIN all you van halen people. that's my main squeeze band! saw them at the forum on the 1984 tour (i was 14)... then waited 23 looooong years to see them again. but it was worth it. went to all 4 LA shows and even sat in the front row for the last one. best night of my life. cherry on the cake of it was my husband caught the drum stick that ed threw out after he did a guitar solo with it. pretty sure i wet myself.
