Who/when was your first rock concert/The Who is Touring?

I just saw that The Who is touring?? I had no idea. Anyways, my first concert was The Who/Orange Bowl/1982 (I think).

When was your 1st show?

My very first concert was Triumph around 1985 or so.

I did see the Who also, can't remember when but it was some time after that.

I had gone to see a couple bands play... So, the first time I can remember going to see a band play, was probably to see a bunch of ska bands... Hepcat being one of them..(93 i think)

My first "concert" would be Pink Floyd ('94) though. I guess I define "concert" as several thousand people in the audience. (versus a show, which is a few hundred).

Was this before or after Veruca Salt was a big name? I went to some whole in the wall in a nasty area of DC to see some unknown band named Veruca Salt. I think there were 15 people there MAX. Fig Dish opened for them (and we know what happened during/after that tour).

This was shortly after their "breakthrough" hit "Seether" came out. They didn't have much of a following, and the lead singer came out in a dress and a gold football helmet on. Wierd.

They sucked too. Heh..

I saw the Live/PJ Harvey/Veruca Salt tour in 96 as well, only in Columbia, MD. Anyway....


First concert....hmm....think it was Guns and Roses/Skid Row in 1992. Embarrassing, isn't it?

I think my first concert was Sonic Youth in Minneapolis the fall of 1995.

Good show, great band live...would highly recommend them if/when they go on tour again.

Wait, no.. the Live / Veruca Salt / PJ Harvey tour was in Summer 1995. The only reason I know this was because I didn't have my license yet and had to have a couple friends drive. I got my license the following summer in 1996.

Robert Palmer, with Belinda Carlisle opening, in Austin, TX. In 1986, I believe (Riptide tour -- I still think "Addicted to Love" was a great single).

Not as embarassing as Kiss/Slaughter/Little Caesar in 1989 on Kiss' Hot in the Shade tour.

When I was in the womb I was at an Emerson, Lake and Palmer concert in Germany. My first concert out of the womb was Neil Young in 1976.
