I gotta have the most embarassing one...

MC Hammer

I think it was in '92 or something, I was like 10 or 11 (didnt know any better)

My first REAL concert (that I bought tickets to) was Tom Petty in I think '95.

Well, if you don't count the Osmonds or Sonny/Cher at a state fair when I was a kid... I'll saw Bob Seger in 1980. Today, that makes me think, "Icky."

KISS was it for me: I was 10 years old in December 1977. AC/DC opened - we booed 'em...

And, I too have seen The Who. They are touring again this summer. A list of places they are playing is right here .
Cool... Irvine sounds like a good possibility for me this year. Saw them in Oakland many years ago.

My first concert was Blue Öyster Cult back in the 70's.

Guns N' Roses, April 6, 1992, Myriad Arena, Oklahoma City.

Smashing Pumpkins, virtually an unknown band at the time (at least in Oklahoma, and compared to GN'R), opened for GN'R and were booed off the stage maybe 20-25 minutes into their set.

Billy Joel at Aloha Stadium in '87.

Front row, center. Still one of my favorite concert experiences ever.
