Default 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"....

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!!!!

Mine was 1992,Knebworth,
Genesis.
In support,Lisa Stansfield ! (remember her?)
and some irish band who where rubbish.
First gig this and it was amazing.There was meant to be one on the saturday aswell as the one on sunday that myself and two mates went to.But for some reason the saturday gig was cancelled.
Was an amazing performance,I waited until last year for them (genesis) to tour again.
