I did just remember the first concert I took my one son to. He was a big fan of Chumbawumba when he was around 12, and I managed to score a couple tickets for him on one of the radio station caller # 9 give-aways. It was at the second seediest concert location in Columbus, on the OSU campus, so I was not letting him go without me. (For safety reasons, not because I like seedy establishments!) It was pretty fun for both of us, though it was weird, too, because the group was kind of a rebel radical group (in their own minds) and here was an audience full of middle-schoolers who liked "Tub-Thumping!" The band seemed more than a little disappointed. I think I had to let Corey miss school the next morning because the music started and ended so late and he was probably almost as excited about that as he was about the concert!

"I get knocked down, but I get up again..." I dare you to get that out of your mind tonight!

That's amazing! They were very close to NOTHING when I saw them in a crappy little concert at Bellingham!

Beach Boys (w/Brian Wilson) and Steppenwolf at Seattle Ctr. Coliseum in November of 1976. Quite a combo.

My first concert was Motley Crue opening for Ozzy! The tour was Bark at the Moon! I went with my brother and 12 other guy's! That's the only way I could go if I went with them! If my Mom only knew what we did! She never would have let us out of the house again!

Here in Minneapolis/St. Paul, when I was growing up, we were fortunate to have lots of clubs that catered to teens. Many of them had alcohol sections but people in those sections weren't allowed to consume their drinks in the non-alcohol sections. Some of the clubs that I vividly remember were the Lions Den, Mr Lucky's, Bimbos, Vincent Van Gogh Go, Depot (aka First Avenue), Withrow, Prom Center... just to name a few. So we got to preview many bands before they made it big.

Locally, the first bands I was exposed to were at a concert style venue during a battle of the bands at Aldrich Arena. The three bands I remember from that event were the Underbeats, Trashmen and the Fendermen. Thought you might enjoy some of these vintage links...

Of the big concert era, it would be either Jethro Tull or Led Zeppelin at the Met Center.

Grateful Dead at Madison Sqaure Garden in NYC - circa 1976 or 1977. After many Dead concerts, the exact year is not quite clear.

Very First Concert:
1967-Zubin Mehta conductor of the L.A. Philharmomic, conducting The Nutcracker Suite. Awesome, but the light show sucked...

Rock and Roll:
One of the following: King Crimson, or was it Yes, or was it Genesis somewhere around 1973-74.


Yeesh...I'm old

Come hear Uncle Ron's band

Well the first days are the hardest days, don't you worry any more
'Cause when life looks like easy street, there is danger at your door
Think this through with me, let me know your mind
Wo-oh, what I want to know is, are you kind?

It's a buck dancer's choice my friend, better take my advice
You know all the rules by now, and the fire from the ice
Will you come with me, won't you come with me?
Wo-oh, what I want to know, will you come with me?

God damn, well I declare, have you seen the like?
Their walls are built of cannon balls
Their motto is "don't" tread on me"

Chorus 1
Come hear Uncle Ron's Band, playing to the tide
Come with me or go alone
He's come to take his children home

It's the same story the crow told me, it's the only one he knows
Like the morning sun you come and like the wind you go
Ain't no time to hate, barely time to wait
Wo-oh, what I want to know, where does the time go?

I live in a silver mine and I call it beggar's tomb
I got me a violin and I beg you call the tune
Anybody's choice, I can hear your voice
Wo-oh, what I want to know, how does the song go?

Chorus 2
Come hear Uncle Ron's Band, by the river side
Got some things to talk about
Here beside the rising tide

[chorus 1]

Wo-oh what I want to know, how does the song go?

Oh man, I don't even know what was the first concert I went to. We used to go just about every weekend to Winterland in San Francisco. Lets see, maybe Santana and Tower of Power, or The Who, Grateful Dead (of course :p ) Elvin Bishop, Journey, J. Geils Band, Boz Scaggs, Blue Oyster Cult, Jefferson Airplane/Starship. In the 60s and 70s Winterland was the place to be, well also the Filmore, Cow Palace. Does anyone remember Days on the Green? Saw Pete Framptom, don't remember who else, was too high on those hallucinagenics to remember much

The last concert I went to was Bruce Springsteen, the best....cause baby I was born to run...

My first concert was the Jimi Hendrix Experience with Cat Mother and the All Night News Boys opening up. Minneapolis Auditorium and I was 16 years old. I'll never forget it......at least I hope I never do.

I saw Diana Ross and the Supremes in 1964. Partially explains my appreciation for live music as I was only 8 years old in '64.
