I would have been to young to remember my firt show. Some Jazz Fest, or show down in NO probably?

As for shows that I went to of my own accord, sad to say it might have been Kix opening up for David Leee Roth in 87ish. LOL. Next would have been the Rolling Stones. Then Rush. And finally, I went to my first dead show in 1990. It been sweet love ever since. :)

Review: ZEPPELIN IS LATE, LOUD, GOOD

Raleigh News and Observer
April 9, 1970 | By Gerry Ligon

Playing to an audience ranging from babes-in-arms to the "over thirty generation", Led Zeppelin put wings on Dorton Arena and piloted the audience on a musical tour from blues, to jazz, to boogie, to pure hard rock.

The performance had a very slow start. After waiting more than 45 minutes for the show to begin, the patient audience was rewarded with five minutes of ear-splitting feed back.

In order to avoid the echo within the arena, which Jimi Hendrix encountered recently, the performers had to present their music at their maximum volume. Because of this, the audience had to adjust to the powerful beat of sound.

However, anyone who arrived for the performance with a negative point of view had to be somewhat persuaded by the audience's acceptance of the reverberating sound. As in most rock concerts, each performer gave his solo.

Unlike most rock concerts, the audience spent a great portion of the show saluting the solos in standing ovations.Undoubtedly, anyone who refuses to listen to any music on his own phonograph above one-half volume, would not have lasted 30 minutes in the arena; but those who know how to listen to the rock and jazz of today were the ones who would not let the performers quit.

If this show is an example of how the music of today will be accepted in Raleigh, we can expect to see many more concerts of this type in the future. The reaction of the audience at last night's performance said so. (courtesy: Steve A. Jones)

There were two shows in the same month, fall 1991. My friends mom took us to see EMF at St. Andrews Hall in Detroit and then my other friend invited me to see Paula Abdul at the Palace of Auburn Hills, accompanied by her dad and his girl-friend. I used to really like the song Cold Hearted Snake when it first came out. :shock:

Debbie Gibson @ Madison Square Garden...I think in 1988. 2nd set was a FACE-MELTER! Out Of the Blue > Only In My Dreams blew the brains out the back of my skull :P

But the first concert I went to without my parents (as I credit as my first 'real' concert) was Phish in Holmdel, NJ 7/2/94

I bet it'll be a lot more than that - at least among the 40-something crowd. Around 76, Kiss seemed to be marketing to teenage or preteen boys - the comic books, action figures, stage theatrics, etc. For a lot of us that night, it was our first concert.

When I was 15, I was over it. My second concert was Foghat. Savannah, 1977-maybe.

Eric Clapton, Aug 4th, 1974, West Palm Beach, FL. It was the 461 Ocean Blvd tour. Keith Moon sat in for I Can't Explain. Pretty much set the stage for the rest of my music-loving life.
