My first concert was at Chicagofest back in 1982 or 1983. I don't remember the year. My friends and I went to go see Cheap Trick and Joe Walsh perform in Soldier Field. My friends entered the venue before I did because they wanted to see Cheap Trick. I hate Cheap Trick so I walked around the outside of the stadium where a number of small stages were set up. I came upon this blues stage where this guy was just wailing on his Fender Strat like I had never heard. I sat down and watch him for about an hour and then joined my friends inside for Joe Walsh. A year or so later I heard that same guitar player on the radio. The guy's name was Stevie Ray Vaughn.

Chicagofest was cancelled by Mayor Harold Washington a few years later and I can't find records of who played there. Similarly, I can't find any information on a SRV web site that will corroborate my story. So I hope you'll take me on my word that my first show was Stevie Ray Vaughn. Sadly, that was the only time I got to see him. Like so many of our music heroes, he left us far too early.

I'm sure many will be able to trump this, but my first was Rush at the Erie County Fieldhouse in Erie, PA...I think Max Webster opened, not sure about that w/o rummaging up the stub, which I still have.

It was the Farewell to Kings Tour...I believe 1977.

My first was ZZ Top (Eliminator Tour) at the met center here in Minnesota. I was in fifth grade and I went with my dad and about ten other members of the Minnesota chapter of the Hells Angels. I remember how mad my mom was because I wore my new concert tee-shirt in my fifth grade school pictures the next day instead of the outfit she sent with to my dad's.

My first concert was on 2/17/79 Rush and Head East opened at Cumberland County Memorial Arena in Fayetteville,NC.It was a great show and the pot smoke was so thick you could cut it with a knife!Tickets were $7.00 in advance and $7.50 at the door those were great days.My second show was at the same venue a couple of weeks later it was UFO,Judas Priest and Humble Pie on the same bill for 9 bucks!!

Actually these were my first rock concerts when i was a kid my aunt took me to Neil Diamond it was a great show.But the above was my first rock shows.

my first show was johnny winter in central park in '77, first arena show was Zeppelin @ MSG for $14. Hendrix played across the street from house when I was a kid - and got booed off the stage because nobody knew who he was and they wanted the Monkees!

You win. Unless someone's first show was Woodstock back in 1969, I don't see anyone topping the Beatles on their first American tour.

Blue Oyster Cult with Bob Seger, Fall of '76, Niagara Falls Convention Center. Price: $6. It was good but I doubt if it beat the Beatles.

Actually an older friend of mine saw the Beatles in 64 or 65 and he said it was great being there but as far as live you couldn't even hear them the whole time for all the screaming!

It took a while to get to some good shows. But the first one was on invitation of a very pretty friend when I was very young: Information Society (honestly didn't even know who they were) They had a guy open for them who must have been a MJackson impersonator who I kept yelling 'beat it' to. He had a sparly glove and moonwalked. Not a good night for music to say the least, on South St in Philly.

Next was Billy Joel on the floor of the Spectrum; better but not quite there. Black Crowes opened for someone there too; that was the best early on.

A few yrs later I saw the Dead and then another yr or so the Bros. By then it was on! Oh it is still ON!!

I guess I am only as sick as my secrets: 1st concert (mind you, it was the 70's), was the Village People and Sister Sledge opening up at Madison Square Garden My Dad took me..I think I was 8 or 9 years old. I even remember how the cowboy rode on to the stage on a horse, the biker on a motorcycle, the cop in a cop car...You get the idea. Next show was a little better: The Police @ Shea Stadium w/ Joan Jett and REM opening.

my first show was The Who at Shea Stadium on their original "Farewell" tour in 1982. The Clash opened up...I remember it all being sponsered by Schlitz Beer...still great memories of that show...not a bad way to break a 12 year old kid in....
