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.


damn, you lucky dog. That's one hell of a way to start your concert going adventures 8)

Opening for Clapton was a band called Barnstorm featuring some cat on guitar named Joe Walsh.

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


JESS...

I had a feeling after meeting you a few weeks ago that you were a HUGE Debbie Gibson fan, lol!!!!!

It was nice to meet a fellow Jam Cruiser at that party though. I look forward to chilling again on the high seas in less than half a year...

And to answer this question:

My first concert was RUSTED ROOT (I am from Pittsburgh, which is where RR is from as well) on NYE '95 at the Civic Arena. To this day it was the biggest show Rusted Root ever sold out themselves. They actually sold over 17,000 tickets for NYE back in the early 90's, now, if they sell 1,000 on their own that would be impressive...

12/31/95 Civic Arena, Pittsburgh, PA
Back To The Earth

Come Down
Cat Turned Blue
Big White Bird
Infinite Space
Voodoo
Rain
Dangle
Tree
Cruel Sun
Laugh As The Sun

I also saw them next year oon NYE as well:

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)


That's awesome. A buddy of mine played his version of 'Thank You' during our wedding while they seated our mothers.

I wish I could have seen them live.

I believe it was Aerosmith, in junior high? Still young, obviously - went to the bathroom during "Dream On" because I didn't know the song. :oops:

Carrier Dome - Syracuse University
Syracuse, NY

The Rolling Stones
Molly Hatchet
David Jo Hansen

The American Tour in support of Tattoo You, sponsored by Jovan Musk(I believe the first corporate sponsorship of a tour)

Various ticket sales records were set, some of them still remain.

I was 16. I remember they had a cherry picker that lifted Mick up and out to the higher levels of the dome. There was also a ton of baloons released.

probably 72 or 73 they took my Jewish overnight camp,about 100 of us, to see Isaac Hayes (Shaft theme on the charts at the time) at the old Valley Forge Music fair outside Phila. Great venue that's gone now. The first show I bought tickets for Steve Miller Band at Temple U's Ambler campus about 20 minutes outside Phila. I believe it was my third for KISS... Spectrum Dec. 77. Maybe JC should do a KISS theme,not just the band: Prince song, kiss my ass, Kiss of the Spiderwoman, Just Kissed My Baby (go George)
