What was your first concert

Mine was the Verve Pipe when I was in 8th Grade and it was a decent show had good seats in the General Admission area right in front of the stage sang along to most songs.

If u dont know who they are they had one hit in the 90s The Freshman but they are from the Grand Rapids area so they filled a decent sized field house I still see them from time to time to only in a smaller club

New Kids on the Block at the old Philadelphia Spectrum. I was 8. My dad took me. Our seats were in the very last row at the top of the arena. It was my dad, me, and a zillion and one screaming teenage girls. It's no wonder my dad spent most of the night at the beer stand right by our seats.

June 1975, Atlanta Stadium, Pink Floyd; I was 15 and my older friend drove us. Rained like a mother and somebody got the baseball tarpolin out and we all stood under it. Never forget holding the edge of it and feeling the rain trickle down my arms (ah, redbud!). They did all of Dark Side and some of Wish you Were Here, which had yet to be released. And they had an airplane crashing into the stage; wow, man!

Me, too! At the Capital Center. But sans The Tubes, JCM, and Sammy Hagar. Then Bryan Adams got sick and he wasn't there either.....but Journey was awsome (at least for a 10th grader's 1st concert)

Early '81, Rush on the Moving Pictures tour. 13th birthday present from my parents.

Originally, my dad was supposed to take me. Neither of us was looking forward to that pairing. At the last minute, my mom had the brainstorm of giving my former babysitter - who at that time was this cool 19-20 year old chick - a few bucks to take me. It was great. In the words of Verbal Kint, "I got to make like I was notorious."
