    Re: Your first concert?

    Led Zeppelin 1969. I believe it was the first US tour. You could buy the album at the door.

    Re: Your first concert?

    "Led Zeptlin" -- ask for them by name!

    I assume that's a different Genesis than the Peter Gabriel-led band, since they didn't hit the states until 1972.

    AC/DC & UFO at the Morris Civic Auditorium in South Bend, Indiana on 5/16/1979. Truly memorable!

    I bet that was cool. Steve Marriott, to me, was the best rock frontman of that era. Smokin' is a great record too.

    My first concert was March of 1984, Motley Crue and Ozzy.

    Pat,

    Seeing Marriot singing live was almost a religious experience. Besides his stage presence, and he was an itty bitty dude, his voice and control of it was unreal. I saw Pie on their next tour (Eat It) through Houston (12/3/73) and never again.

    Mid '74, I heard another voice/band that caught my attention. Some weird looking guy from Canada with a super high range, a guitarist that played really cool licks. and a drummer that was unworldly. My musical tastes took a definite turn and it wouldn't be long before Pie hung it up and Rush became the band I tried to see every time they hit town.

    Re: Your first concert?

    Chuck Berry, on his "they let me out of jail" tour in January 1964.

    Baggy 50's suit and duck walking like crazy with his cherry 345. Just brilliant.

    The Moody Blues had been way down the bill, but they had a Number 1 Record ("Go Now" - the old Bessie Banks number), so they got second on the bill.

    Bottom of the bill was the Graham Bond Organisation, with Jack Bruce on bass and Ginger Baker on drums!

    Re: Your first concert?

    This one -- the Beatles at Tad Gormley (City Park) Stadium - New Orleans in 1964.

    I was in the 5th grade, and the girl across the street had a birthday party -- two station wagons full of kids and moms. Unforgettable experience now that I look back.

    Re: Your first concert?

    I would have loved to have seen some of these bands you guys are posting about

    alas, I was born too late...

    I think my first concert was one of these:

    Tom Petty at Kingswood/Canada's Wonderland
    Triumph's farewell concert, at Kingswood/Canada's Wonderland
    Pink Floyd 1987 reunion concert, at CNE in Toronto

    I ended up with front row seats to Pink Floyd, after sleeping outside on the street for 3 days in Brampton, outside the Ticketmaster booth. there were a bunch of people there, was a pretty good time, actually :D

In May of '71 was Mountain with Mylon opening at Hampton Beach Casino. The Who at The Music Hall in June. Led Zeppelin at the Garden the night before I began my senior year of HS. The summer afternoon I drove in to get tickets for LZ, Alice Cooper was playing on the Boston Common for a buck. He played the whole "Love It To Death" Album". Mountain with Black Oak Arkansas maybe in December at the Orpheum.
    tough beating that first show..

    Re: Your first concert?

    Thought I would resurrect a past thread given the fond memories....

    Previously I replied that Humble Pie at the Alexandria Roller Rink in 1971 was my first bonafide rock concert....

    but I remember now the first real concert was Spirit w/ Randy California and Ed Cassidy, at Fort Hunt High School in 1969!
