Default What was your first?

I thought it might be interesting to find out what everyone's first concert was. Mine was The James Montgomery Blues band,Nazareth and Deep Purple in 1973. It was at the Springfield (Ma.) Civic Center and tickets were $5.50 for general admission.

Foreigner, and a band called Zon, which opened for them many years ago at Exhibition Place in Toronto during the CNE (Canadian National Exhibition)

2 buds of mine and I went for the rides, games, etc, when we were 17-18 and had no plans to attend a concert but when a scalper spied us and pressured us somewhat, we took him up on it.

For a first concert, it was excellent, and one I'll never forget. Couldn't believe how loud it was.

Led Zeppelin. April 11, 1970, Kiel Opera House in St. Louis. A very eye opening experience for a 15-year old who had to bum a ride from a friend since I didn't even have a drivers license yet. We had floor seats but ended up standing on our chairs the whole night. I remember there were long drum and organ solos. They finished the set with an encore - Whole Lotta Love. It was incredible. Still love that song.

Chicago and the Beach Boys 1974...... and this is when Chicago still had some "nads" before all that soft rock crud that wrecked the band as far as I am concerned.

As far as Chicago goes,there's a really good concert from them on YouTube from Tanglewood (Lenox Ma.) in 1970. I would have loved to seen this show! They definitely had some nads!
Here's a link to listen to 25 or 6 to 4:

Here a link to listen to the whole Chicago concert:

The Police in Buffalo.
Talk about a power trio, the entire concert only had the three of them on stage. No additional musicians, no backup singers, nothing. Every single sound created that night was produced by Sting, Stewart and Andy alone. Truly awesome.

Foreigner and Billy Squire in the real Boston garden. 81 I think.. Must be because Black Sabbath was the second, and that was the mob rules tour.

I saw Squier in his first commercial band, Piper. WCOZ sponsored the show at the Orpheum, moved from the Paradise, and the tickets were 94 (radio station was 94.5). I bought ten and scalped them to my friends for $1.00. Opening act was The Babys. It was probably 1977. After the show I got up to go out and Roger Taylor from Queen was standing right in front of me. Queen was using the Orpheum to prepare for their 'News of the World' tour. Years later I was talking to Squier at an appearance for his acoustic album and he mentioned that backstage was filled with their gear.

My first show - Elton John's Bicentennial concert July 4, 1976 at Schaeffer Stadium, original home of the NE Patriots in Foxorough. Opening acts were John Miles and I believe Dave Mason. Miles had a minor radio hit at the time with "High Fly". He was bigger in the U.K.

I 'worked' at COZ answering phones for Cindy Bailen. I was working in college radio at the time - WUMB U/Mass Boston. I also worked as a bouncer at Spit when it first opened so I also knew Oedipus and Albert O. Cindy played the mainstream rock, but she was more into punk and new wave. We went to the Dead Kennedys at the Channel in 1980/81. Wildest show I ever went to. So oversold you could not move. We were able to convince the club people to let us stand behind the stage and watch the show. Just as wild from there. I am sure you remember the Channel.

An old roommate/coworkers brother ran security for the channel for a while.
Offered to put me on the guest list whenever, a connection I only used a couple times. One of them I casually said "I'm guessing with the band being popular there's no chance " "No problem, you want backstage passes?"

Played paintball with the bouncers a few times, they played once, hated the cheating from the other team. So they rented the field as a private party. Loads of fun. It was a bit strange though, most of my friends were computer guys and I was a mechanic so I was a bit stronger. At the paintball games and helping my friend move, I was the smallest guy on the field. Moving went from one group saying "wait for help before you roll the fridge down the ramp " (didn't need help or wait, small fridge already on wheels) To "Oh, Steve you can carry..... this lamp? "

I used to go to the Channel to get autographs of the musicians when they walked in. Easiest place ever as there was no other way to go in. I would walk in with the musicians and watch the sound checks - Leslie West, Tubes, Big Audio Dynamite, Rick James, John Entwistle etc. No one ever bothered me because they knew I would hang around, get my items signed and leave. Peter Lembo who managed the Channel, and the Stompers was a good acquaintance of mine. He was a baseball memorabilia/autograph collector. He knew I was one of the few true music autograph collectors in Boston. He also collected music items. He owned one of Elvis's cars. He later managed Matthew's Arena at Northeastern. His brother was an attorney there. Both were Pirates fans.

As a teen in Buffalo in the 70s all the bands came through there from nyc to other venues. I made a list of the concerts I saw and bands and the list was over 100 bands long. Honestly cannot remember my first but in the summer of 73s three stand out. June. Pink Floyd DSOTM. July Led Zeppelin. August Jethro Tull A passion play. Too, too many others to list. I may be old but I saw all the great bands.

That (Zappa) had to be awesome!

That was the most impressive 'first' I've read until...

Jim seeing Buddy Holly in 1958!!!

Either experience dwarfs anything I've experienced. WOW!!

The thing about seeing Buddy Holly was i didn't really go to see him, it was just that a girl I wanted to see was going to be there. However, after seeing Buddy and the Crickets, he became my favorite never to be replaced. Incidentally the girl was there and we did go on a date:>}

Face to Face eventually got a national contract and airplay ('10-9-8). Their lead guitar player became a member of Bob Dylan's touring band.
Aimee Mann found fame with 'Til Tuesday. One of the prelim bands that did not advance was Tennie Komar and the Silencers. In the late 90's and early 2000's I would see Tennie all of the time as she did the same type of legal research I did. I was probably the only person who knew she was a rock singer.

It was hilarious how much of an entertaining cheeseball he was and how everyone ate it up. Suddenly strumming his guitar with a bouquet of roses and all sorts of other things. Up front in the audience were countless women reliving their 1980's love for him, and shaking what they got. I turned to my girlfriend and said, "When 'Don't Talk To Strangers' was a hit, they were probably throwing their panties on stage. Now I'm afraid they're going to hurl their Depends up there!!"

I was such a dangerous hitter I even got intentional walks during batting practice.

Spelling "Yastrzemski" correctly without needing to look it up since the 1980's.

Well, mine I believe will be the first country music act. I saw George Strait in Billings, MT in 1990 or 1991. He played there both years, and in my memory I thought I saw him twice. So it's completely possible. I would have been 4 and 5 yrs old. I believe a picture of my sister being lifted up by a security guard to put a rose onstage was printed in the local paper.

In 1995, 1996, and 1997 my father was in charge of putting together the Marlboro Music acts at the Billings County Fair. Lineups brought in Tim McGraw, Faith Hill, Brooks and Dunn, Merle Hagfard, Little Texas, Diamond Rio, and REO Speedwagon among others. Those were memories of a lifetime. And to think my dad was in charge of one of the most popular events in Billings is still pretty cool.

It was awesome, A friend and I loved the at the time risque Just Another Band from LA and Live at the Fillmore albums, magical stuff for 13 year olds. We were almost folk heroes in junior high that year because our parents let us attend.
I saw Zappa one more time during his Joe's Garage Tour.
