Your First Concert
Next Sunday is Mother's Day here in the States and I am going to see Rush by myself. My youngest daughter is adamant that she is not going because as she said "My first concert is going to be Saxon"....:D

And that got me thinking about my first concert which was Rush w/ Thin Lizzy on the 2112 tour, 1976 ( I was 13).

So, just curious, what was everyone's first?

And sorry if this has been asked before , I searched but did not see anything.

Well done to your daughter Gina! :)

Well the first band that I ever saw just happens to be Saxon, at the Rainbow Theatre in London in 1980. I didn't even see the support band, which were Lionheart. Maybe that is just as well because maybe if I had seen Lionheart, I'd be a die hard fan of theirs instead?! Good job I'm not because I don't think Lionheart even made it to 1981! lol.

My first gig was way back in 1982 as a mere 16 year old.

I saw Motorhead, Twisted Sister (their first UK show), Tank and a couple of other bands who I can't remember at the moment. The show was at Wrexham Football Club. Motorhead were good, but TS were awesome!

Seems like only yesterday, not 26 years ago!!!!
