your first concert

The video of the rockers in the other thread gave me an idea for a new thread.

Post your experience at your first rock concert. When was it? What band? Drugs? good or bad experience?

I will Start. I was 13 and the year was 73. I saw Jethro Tull at the Bayfront Center in St Pete with my neihbor girl and her older sister. I smoked about a dime bag and did half a hit of choclate mesc.

I remember when the lights went down everyone in the place lit a joint. This was my first experience tripping. Jethro tull seemed almost mystical and the place was surreal to me. The music was fucking outstanding and he did the whole aqualung album.  I remember  a smile glued on my face and feeling almost a magical element to the evening. It was just great.

As an adult about 10 years or so ago I went back to a Jethro Tull concert. He seemed like an old man and when he sang the lyrics you could tell he didn't believe them anymore. He sucked.

But that first night, that first concert, I will always remember as a special evening.

My first concert was in 7th garde, I saw KISS in Evansville Indiana with a friend of mine. His Dad and girlfriend took us, no drugs we wanted to get high I had two joints but could never get far away enough from his Dad to light up. The concert was great the were really quite the "Show" to see, I think it was 1979

I was 13 when my girlfriends older sisters boyfriend paid The Faction $100.00 to play on a half-pipe in Midland, TX.  Steve Caballero was bad ass.  they brought the Drab with them.  There were kegs of beer and I had some weed.   The police showed up and told the Drab to turn it down.  They turned it up, told the cop to fuck himself, and the show was then shut down.
So we moved everything to Arials (local Midland band) practice place and finished the show there.

Today Steve Caballero is a character on Tony Hawks pro skater video game.  The game features music from Reo Speeddealer, (now it's just Speeddealer because Reo Speedwagan sued them over the name.)   The first show I ever played was opening up for Reo Speeddealer in Lubbock, TX with a band called Gooey. (2 years after straight)  The Pornjunky DVD features clips of Speeddealer from when I booked them in Midland, TX.  
 :grin:
My first concert would have been KISS when I was in 3rd grade.  My family had just moved to Midland,TX from Phoenix, AZ.  I was planning to see Kiss in Phoenix, but moved before their concert. In Midland I found out they were coming there too.    But because Kiss was the great satan, church protesters got the show cancelled.  They did the same thing to Ozzy when I was in 6th grade.  In 8th grade I finally saw a big concert which was Sammy Hagar and Krokus

Hahaha... Ohhhh, the eighties. :grin:

My first concert was Black Sabbath in Jacksonville, FL in 1980 or so on the "Heaven and Hell" tour, RJ Dio on vocals, the rest of the band the original members.  I smoked some weed (definitely NOT TBPITW) and drank a beer or two.  The show was pretty good.  I saw them a year later on the "Mob Rules" tour, same lineup except no Bill Ward (Vinnie Appice, Carmine's bro, was drumming).  I think I saw Rush that year, too.  Didn't see many shows pre-Straight, but have seen literally thousands since.
