Attended many a punk rock show. First "concert"? DEVO, Long Beach Arena, with X opening. Well, actually DEVO opened the show as DOVE, a flower-lovin' 60's, hippie- spoof. Weird.

What a great thread!! My First 'Real' concert? "Kiss, T-Rex and UFO" at the Aragon Ballroom, Chicago, 1974!! Yikes! What a first show! When I was a little kid, my folks took me to see 'The Osmonds' at some county fair in Illinois, but they don't count. Some later concerts were, Frank Zappa (about 15 times!), Dio, Ramones, Dictators, Rough Cutt, Jerry Jeff Walker, Tonic, Third Eye Blind. There were more, but those are the stand outs.

Oh Yes they dooooo-oooo!
Hey! The Osmond's is better than my DeFranco Family...at least you got the genuine article! I got stuck seeing The Osmond's wannabee's...little Tony DeFranco sure was dreamy though...

First concert - The Beatles! Saw them at Forest Hills Stadium in NY (now Arthur Ashe Stadium where the US Open is played). My older sister brought me. I couldn't really see them very good but luckily some girl had binoculars and let me use them so I could get a close up look at my beloved. I was sooo in love with Paul. The worst thing was that I could only hear the 1st 3 words of every song because the second they started singing the girls started screaming. It was still the best concert ever though. Talk about exciting. I was the envy of all my friends.

Cool! I know somebody else that was at that show. Funny, I saw The Cars at Forrest Hills Tennis Stadium in the summer of '84 right after I graduated high school. Wang Chung opened up for them. My cousin and I somehow got my aunt to pay for really good seats for us. All I can remember is that they opened with 'Hello Again' and about a third of the way into the show it started to rain. Fast forward to now: I saw Ric Ocasek play CBGB last week. After the gig was over he was doing an informal meet & greet in one of the rooms behind the stage. I told him that I saw him at that gig in '84, and he said "Oh yeah, I was just talking about that. That was the night I got shocked".

I don't remember THAT...

Great idea!

I first saw Sammy Hagar and Thin Lizzy in Sacramento in 1976. I was sad because Queen called in sick. My boyfriend was glad! He was a big Red Rocker fan.

Then I went to two Day on the Greens in Oakland in 1977.
First was Led Zeppelin, Judas Priest and Rick Derringer.

Next was the Eagles, The Steve Miller Band, Atlanta Rhythm Section, Heart and Foreigner. Wonderful day! I will be seeing the Eagles again soon here in Hawaii.

Some of you have seen some amazing concerts!

My sister would have killed to have seen the DeFrancos! What a great ear-worm song: Heart Beat it's a Love Beat...

May we cherish the memories!

Book of Love was the opening act, not that it matters much.


First concert was kiss at the Hollywood Sportatorium yeah was a dump in that the roof leaked and the parking lot turned to mud after shows and there was only one lane in the middle of nowhere at night. BUt saw the best bands there Rush Deep Perple so the memories are great. To show how things changed I saw Brian Adams, Sammy Hagar,Aerosmith, and Journey at the local minor league baseball stadium (Bobby Maduro Baseball Stadium) for $14!!!!! cant even get a souvenier now for that

An old post maybe some of us new people care add here.

ok not sure if it counts as a real concert but here it is:
Summer of 1974 I think. It was at The Mall in Arcadia Calif (Santa Anita Fashion Park) I went with my first girl friend, Susan I was in Love! " Shawn Cassidy" on the back of a flat bed truck. Oh the things we do (run run) for young love.

I followed it up later that summer with the Motor City Mad Man Ted Nugent.

Now I know I'm gettin old!

I believe it was 1976 .....dates are gettin unclear....besides, next to a pro musician I've seen SOOOOOO many concerts it's all just a blur!

ALICE COOPER (with special guest The Babys)
The Cow Palace - San Francisco
Welcome to My Nightmare Tour.....damn fun then and still a stand out after seeing all the biggest acts left alive after that date!

I go to a concert for the SHOW.... acoustically perfect, I can stay home and play the LP if they don't have a show.....that was how I felt about The Cars...loved the band, the music, was WAY into them but BORING live!

ALICE COOPER was like watching live theater, a monster movie and, (at that time of my life), awesome music!
