Pearl Jam in Charleston. I think I was around 12 years old? I remember telling my brother I thought somebody farted because it smelled weird. Wasn't a fart...oh to be young and naive.

I have seen a lot of really really good concerts. But Motley Crues Girls, Girls, Girls sticks out in my head as the most craziest, over the top concert. It was a lot of fun. Pink Floyds last tour was amazing. Saw it at the new Dean Dome back in the day. ZZ Top was always top shelf.
I also saw George Clinton with all of his croonies..Parliment ect ect. They were fantastic also.

Does anyone remember the old Christian rock band Petra? They played at the Greenville Memorial Auditorium around 1990 or 91. I remember people from Bob Jones Univ. standing outside protesting saying all rock music was of the devil.

LOVED going to see ZZ Top anywhere they were. I saw them the first time in 1973
(Tres Hombres Tour). They opened a show for The J. Geils Band in Chapel Hill. At that
time they just did the show in blue jeans and T-shirts and some Damn Good music !
Next time I saw them was in Littlejohn Coliseum in Clemson (1977). That was the
Tejas Tour I think. Doobie Brothers opened for them (Damn Good Show). That's when
they wore the Cowboy hats and boots and the stage was made up like a desert scene
with dirt, cactus, cow skulls and they had the live coyote come out on stage. Loved the
music so much, that my (ex) wife and I bought tickets to see them during the same
tour at the Carolina Coliseum. Few years later was when they started to get into the
high tech stage shows and the music was more of the "New Age Blues" stuff they got
into. Started using the lasers and elaborate stage setups and lighting. That was in
Greenville at the old Mem. Auditorium. Styx and a Re-vamped Grand Funk Railroad
opened that show. My (now) wife and I caught them a few years later when they were
just starting the Eliminator Tour at the Carolina Coliseum. WOW....the stage and light
show alone were worth the price of the tickets.

I was at that one. If I remember correctly, it was only a few weeks into Fall semester and had no opening act. But you are correct, the light/lasers were worth every penny+ some. Cutting edge for the time.
It was my Freshman year at Carolina. A group of us tried our best to get some shrooms but it last minute fell through(chick didn't get there in time and dude had already left) Chick was a USC cheerleader we knew from HS who had the connections. Anyways, we are walking back up the hill towards campus after the concert and chick spots Dude and he ask her, "Y'all still lookin for some caps?" LMAO, I'll never forget it. Half of just went to our knees, hands toward sky, "WHY??!!" Long story short, we got our shrooms, loaded up on beer at the 7Eleven across from the Honeycombs, and watched the sun rise from the roof of Laborde....or Snowden. That part's fuzzy. HeHe

My favorite all time band in the Beach Boys. However, I was pretty young.

Ill say my first real concert and a group that I have seen close to 12 or so times is Jump Little Children.
