I'm sure this has been done here before, but....

Mine was Steppenwolf at the Macon Coliseum, sometime during the summer of 1972, I believe.

It is amazing what you can learn on the internet. I found this on the Mouse and the Boys' website. I now recall they were the opening act:

"One memorable moment was in the Macon Coliseum in Macon, Georgia. We opened for Steppenwolf. We ended our set and the crowd was asking for an encore. We went back out to do it and right in the middle of it Steppenwolf's Road Manager pulled the main plug on us and told us to get off stage. We left the stage but when Steppenwolf came on they were greeted with catcalls and boos that could be heard over their music."

It was either Steppenwolf or Three Dog Night @ the Louisville Fairgrounds. Can't remember which was first. My elder sister took me and my best friend because we were too young to drive. She insisted on leaving before the encore to beat the traffic. After that, I found another way to get there.

My mother paid $4.50 apiece. I was seated in the very last row. No joke. The LAST row. The Stadium seated 53,000 or so. I was closer to the band when they flew in by helicopter. Mom coughed up another couple of bucks the next year and I made it down to the first lodge.

Gentle Giant, Edgar Winter Group and Humble Pie at the Baltimore Civic Center late 1972 or early 1973.

The concert that changed my life forever? June 9, 1973 at RFK Stadium in DC. Doug Sahm, Grateful Dead and the ABB all for $7.50!

I just remembered that Wet Willie was also at that RFK show.

I hate this question and the first record album question b/c I don't have a cool answer. First concert would have to be Bon Jovi on their Slippery When Wet tour at the Omni in Atlanta. Must have been about 6th grade. Oh well, got better from there. (FWIW, first album I purchased with my own money was Weird Al in 3-D, but I usually try to play that off as a comedy album and my first music album was VH's 1984.)

And that's assuming you don't count the Beach Boys at Fulton County Stadium in the early-to-mid-1980s (the Atlanta Braves were the opening act, if that tells you anything about where they were in the standings back then - saw the Braves open for what was left of the Four Tops that same summer). But don't think that really counts....

The first album I owned was Led Zeppelin II, given to me by my cousin. The first one I bought was Iron Butterfly, In-A-Gadda-Da-Vida.

That was back when you could call the stadium and ask what time the game started, and they say, "What time can you get here?"
