Simple Minds was the first big concert I went to but when I was about 7 or so my Uncle took me to the circus where Anson Webber performed. (Yes, Potsie Farking Webber.)

I don't know. The person that got dragged to Lawrence Welk is some serious competition.
 
2012-05-11 09:19:41 AM
I'm not answering this because it's embarrassing. But rest assured, it was a really good concert despite who it was that gave it.
