Depeche Mode at Dodger Stadium in the early 90s. One of the best nights of my life.

JerseyTim: Smoky Dragon Dish: JerseyTim: They Might Be Giants

TMBG was the first concert I saw too. 1990. Same congressional district... it's like we're dopplegangers.

Where did you see them? I saw them in 1994 at Irving Plaza.

A few years later I actually saw them at an in-store at the old Tower Records in Paramus.


It was fall 1990, Flood Tour, Indiana University Memorial Union, Alumni Hall. I was right in front of the stage. I went to IU because I couldn't stomach the thought of going to Rutgers, BTW...

Hollyfeld: Foreigner (4), Billy Squire was the intro act. We got there late and missed almost all of Billy Squire (thank god!)


gryhnd: On my own: Foreigner. Bill Squire opened for them. Took my first serious girlfriend there. We discussed the finer points of "The Stroke" :D


Did we all go to the same concert?

The Evil Home Brewer: The Who.... Tommy


That's kind of like losing your virginity to a Victoria's Secret model. Make that all the Victoria's Secret models.

Everything else would be a letdown.

BubbaJones: The Tubes


/She's a beauty...one in a million girls!


//I was 16 and the girls on tour for that show were hot!
///Copped a feel of the girl in front of me in the pit...she let me do it the entire concert


That wasn't even one of their best songs. WPOD and What do you want from life? were some of the greatest tunes ever IMHO.
 
OOF
2012-05-11 11:18:55 AM
X, 1987.

I saw Eddie Money in KC a few years back and the last song of the set was take me home tonight. And then he encored with Take me home tonight. I am not sure he noticed.
 
2012-05-11 11:22:12 AM

Mudgen: mytdawg: Mudgen: Spirit, with Mark-Almond opening.

Spirit is still one of my favorites.

Mine too. "Papa" Ed Cassidy was about 45 when I saw them with the original lineup including his stepson. He was 89 last week, and was still drumming through at least 2009. As good as Randy California was, "Mr. Skin" was an act to behold in his own right.


Got some Jo Jo Gunne and Jay Ferguson records even. 1400 still on vinyl...
 
2012-05-11 11:24:16 AM
Dave and Sugar in Mesquite, TX 1977

I have no recollection of this concert. But I went back and listened to some Dave and Sugar and wasn't really impressed.
 
2012-05-11 11:26:54 AM
First concert-concert that wasn't like a local band or an orchestra or something was Bush. They were the favourite band of my best friend at the time, and we had made a pact to be concert buddies.

This thread makes me feel young, even though not really.

wolfzr2: Metallica - March '92 Roanoke Va.



Creepy.. that was the 2nd concert I ever went to. I was eleven.
 
2012-05-11 11:28:35 AM
Paula Abdul. Color Me Badd opened for her.

Ivana and Ivanka Trump had seats in front of me. I honestly thought with their money they could afford better seats...

If you can't remember how do you expect us to know?

Heart, Bob Welsh opened for them. It was around 77, 78.
 
2012-05-11 11:30:45 AM
Dolly Parton, in the early 1970's. I was around 8. Went because my parents were going, and took me along.
 
2012-05-11 11:31:28 AM

hillary: Frank Zappa.


Me too! 1984, Them or Us tour. I still have the tour shirt, assuming it hasn't decomposed at the back of the drawer it's in.

it's the concert I'm happiest to have seen, if that makes any sense. And that includes Nirvana at D.C.'s 9:30 Club in 1990, which is a close second.
 
2012-05-11 11:31:47 AM
Sex Pistols
 
2012-05-11 11:31:48 AM
Spin Farkin' Doctors.

(Cracker was the opener, I should have left after them.)
 
2012-05-11 11:31:55 AM
KISS in October of 1996 at the Palace of Auburn Hills. Deftones opened, I had just turned 14. Full makeup, costumes, original lineup, it was awesome.

You go to Depeche Mode at Dodger Stadium in the early 90s? You comin' out someone's bowel movement and that's ALL I gots to say.

Johnny Jellybean @ Frankie's Market, Hasbrouck Heights, NJ. 1958 or 59

Oh, you mean as a teen? That would have been either Gordon Lightfoot, or The Stooges opening for The MC5.

/Yeah, I'm real old
//My lawn, stay off of it

Robert Plant sometime during the early 80s.

fruitbatnt: Mississippi Hippie: fruitbatnt: Korn.....unfortunately

Powerman 5000 - the opening act way way better IMO

If you're talking about the tour they did in 2000, that was my second concert ever and first metal concert.

Yeah, that's the one. I rocked out to PM5K, left in disgust for Papa Roach (ughhhhhh) and came back for a relatively decent Korn show.


Yeah, PM5K was great at that show. I remember I bought their album after that. Papa Roach, of course, sucked. I was 14, just started my first band, and a huuuuuge Korn fan, so their performance was mind blowing to me. Just a few years later, I wouldn't even admit to liking them, lol.
 
2012-05-11 11:39:30 AM
U2. Rage Against the Machine opened.

what the heck is wrong with Korn now? they make pretty decent records. Issues remains a great record.

Michael W. Smith.

First, last, and only "rock" concert I've ever been to.

No, I didn't enjoy it. At all. About half because of TEH JEEBUS and about half because it was too loud to hear myself think.

I regularly attend the symphony and opera, however.

fark you.

Moonfisher: U2. Rage Against the Machine opened.


Can one OD on whining?

Another KISS Army member here: 1977, Birmingham Jefferson Civic Center. I've still got the ticket stub.

morgen_benner: Uisce Beatha: AbbeySomeone: Ted Nugent.

Me too. And up until that point, I thought the portrayal of women throwing bras (and panties) on stage was fictional.

catusr: Ted Nugent ... in early 1969.

But it was very many years after you, you win.

You probably both beat me...I didn't see Nugent until 1999 at the Rock Never Stops tour in Noblesville, IN. Nugent, Quiet Riot, Night Ranger, Slaughter...


Yup, saw him with Damn Yankees (don't judge me!).

Panties a-flyin' on stage, and him shooting his guitar with a flaming arrow after the encore. It was awesome.

F*ck it. Own your sh*t. I had a New Kids on the Block tape. I saw Dave Matthew's 4 times back in the day. Own it. It feels good.

Unless you are a hipster. than yeah. be quiet.

Eric Burdon & the Animals at the Cow Palace in 1964, The Beau Brummels were there too. Saw the Stones at the San Jose Civic Center shortly thereafter along with 5000 or so screaming teenage girls (who are now grandmothers). Went to many concerts at the original Filmore Ballroom and the Avalon Ballroom as well (Led Zepplin was REALLY LOUD there). Lots of others since too.

I guess I am really old [ :-( ], what the hell am I doing on FARK? Get off my lawn!
 
2012-05-11 11:46:05 AM
Well, shiat, this is what I get for sleeping in this morning.

My first concert was Robert Plant & Jimmy Page, on the "No Quarter" tour.

I was nine.

Michael Jackson (and the reunited Jackson 5). I was 7. It was the year after Pepsi tried to catch him on fire. Nosebleed section of Neyland Stadium, Knoxvegas, TN.
 
2012-05-11 11:50:01 AM
Bob Segar and the Silver Bullet band... sucked.
next was Ratt, didn't suck.
 
2012-05-11 11:50:59 AM
First arena show: Jimmy Page, Nassau Colliseum, October 28, 1988

Went to a couple of CBGB Sunday Matinees before that, though. Agnostic Front, August 21, 1988 (the show of their live album) and before that Side By Side, Gorilla Biscuits, Wrecking Crew, don't remember who else. That first CBGB show was one of the greatest experiences of my life.
 
2012-05-11 11:51:28 AM
Either Billy Joel or Journey....forget which was first.
