Default Who/What was the first Concert you attended Live

Who got your cherry ?

Was just talking to a customer rep here at work and we started recalling our teen
years, and the topic of music came up. Turns out we both had the same kinds of tastes
for music and had actually attended some of the same Concerts (back in the day).
He was at the first concert that I ever attended with his eventual wife (still married to
this day). Just started trying to recall some of those first concerts I went to and wanted
to know which acts got your guys first live experience.

Rock, Soul, Country, Gospel, Blues, Blue Grass, Classical etc......

Who was it, and what year ?

Default Re: Who/What was the first Concert you attended Live

First live act I attended was Alice Cooper at the old Greenville Memorial Auditorium.
1970. I was a freshman in HS and went to the concert with a friend of mine. ... Totally
got me hooked on live Rock shows.
That same year, I went to see The Allman Brothers in Atlanta with my uncle and cousin.
It wasn't long before Duane died.

It was either Rush or Van Halen in '91 or '92.

They played about within a week of one another at the Carolina Colosseum. I remember Primus opened for Rush.

8/4/2000 - Pearl Jam with Sonic Youth as the opening band. This was in Charlotte at what is now called PNC Music Pavillion (was Blockbuster Pavillion at the time). I was a rising senior in high school and Pearl Jam was (still is) my favorite band. It is a very defining memory of my teenage years. The show was outstanding, not the best I've seen them, but definitely the most emotional show as it was one of the first after the Roskilde tragedy. I bought the bootleg when it came out and still listen to it regularly.

Saw ZZ Top in 1979 at the Coliseum. They were on the 'Deguello' tour, I believe.

I was hooked once I felt that base thumping me in my chest! Got to see them again in 1986(?) when they toured to support the album with 'Sleeping Bag'...

Yeah, I was quite a lucky teenager. I think my first three shows were FNM/Metallica/GNR, Paul McCartney and Pink Floyd. Followed by Jimmy Buffet, Steve Miller Band/Doobie Bros, and then the Allman Brothers. I wasn't a spoiled rich kid either. I paid for all my own tickets/transportation except Steve Miller(I won those tickets being the 9th caller to Fox 102.3...ON A PAYPHONE!!! I literally pulled the car over, inserted a quarter, dialed the number and was the winning caller. What are the odds of that?).

1997. I wanted to go to that one too, but my parents thought I was too young. Pretty sure that was their first major tour after Evil Empire was released.

Correct. Evil Empire had just been released. That's been 20 years now. Damn I'm getting old.

It's funny because I remember the Beatles coming through the South and the
concert they had in Atlanta, I was 11 at that time. I listened to their music and
liked it like the rest of the country at the time, but I also remember thinking to
myself "Why in the hell was everyone acting that crazy over these guys" ? Their
music was good but I couldn't understand the screaming, fainting crying and the
fanatical rush to the stores to buy their albums and paraphernalia the way most
of the country did. I got more into the Byrds and the Stones when they first
hit the charts than I did the Beatles ..........Until I got into my early and mid
teens. I started to realize what a FORCE these guys were, and what they had
done to the Rock Music industry. By then they had stopped touring and were
slowing falling apart as a band from personal issues. Wish there was a way
I could have gone to that concert in Atlanta and seen them that one time.
