I'm completely unashamed to say that I saw Hall and Oates on that very same tour that Moriarty mentioned. I've always thought that they were unfairly lumped into that 80s/pop/wanker category.

Rush. The Roll the Bones tour in June 1992. I was 17. I was on cloud 9 afterward.

Never thought I'd feel that way again, but Radiohead at the Hollywood Bowl a couple years ago did. Amazing show. I've talked to other people about it and they feel the same way. :D

Hall & Oates. With Till Tuesday as the opening act.

Do I at least get points for being an Aimee Mann fan back then?


thats funny. you know till tuesday actually had like 3 or 4 records that just got buried because the record company wanted a followup to "voices carry". i never liked em, but weak nonetheless

Oh my God. Moriarty saw Black Flag. You lucky fucker. Who was singing? Was it Rollins by then?

My first concert was a bunch of shitty local bands, but they don't count, because they sucked. My first real concert was... *shudder* Powerman 5000, Static-X, and Dope. I offer no excuse except this: I was 15, and I was stupid.

Well, when I was five years old, I saw the original Jackson 5 in 1975. I remember the fros, the platform shoes, the dry ice. And Michael was still human. And Janet was practically a toddler. In my early teens, my brother took me to see Men at Work (Cargo Tour) and the Eurythmics (Touch tour). Just a year or so earlier, he had been lucky enough to see the English Beat, with REM opening! Since it was out of state, I wasn't old enough for that yet. I think my first without a family member was Prince's Purple Rain tour, complete with the bathtubs and flowers falling from the ceiling. Though my true high school concert going started with Tears For Fears, Big Chair tour. Soon after, I'd be seeing the classics Depeche Mode (both Black Celebration and Music For the Masses), OMD (Crush and Pacific Age), the Smiths (Queen is Dead), Erasure (The Innocents), New Order (Brotherhood), Peter Murphy (Love Hysteria - who oddly enough, did a cover of Purple Rain). What a great time!

You are my motherfucking rock and roll hero.

I wish I could claim I'd seen half those shows. The Men At Work tour. The Eurythmics tour. Prince's PURPLE RAIN tour. Holy fuck, man. The Tears for Fears tour. I prefer the first album, but I would have loved to have seen them at that one moment they were "huge."

Seriously. I hate you. I want to eat your brain and absorb the memories of these shows.

My first was in '99. The Rolling Stones No Security tour. It was a 17th birthday present from my dad. Other than the badass show, i remember this old man in front of me. He had to of been older than my dad who was 40 at the time. This guy shaking his body in the strangest way and i was mezmorized by his tie dye shirt. And he was passing a joint around with all of his old ass friends.

So I had a small dinner party a few weeks ago and this "first concert" question came up. My wife proceeded to mention what her first concert was. I think I told my story about my first. And then our special guest to the party mentioned that we "really" didn't want her to play along. We said poppycock (not really, but anyways) and encouraged her to reveal.

She then told us about how she was able to stand stage left during the Beatles first performance on the Ed Sullivan show. Her dad was a big wig at the network and that he let her watch the show from just offstage.

Holy crap. our mouths just hang open. That is the nuts. There is not a performance in the world that could trump that as your first concert.

Samantha Fox wrote:(full force)

Hello, it’s me again
Don’t you know it’s hard to keep a good woman down
But then again, maybe that could be fun
Sa-sa-sa-sa-samantha fox!

Ain’t it funny how when I say let’s go out
You’re always saying someone else will get me
What’s a girl to do - I like to have fun too
But you’re so jealous - you never let me

So how come you can leave - but when it comes to me
Always something I must prove
You know I love you - always thinking of you
But tonight - I’ve got to make that move

I wanna have some fun
Move my body all night long
I wanna have some fun
Move my body all night long
Working 9 to 5 each and every day
What your momma used to say - all work - no play
I know what to do - I think I’ll call my crew
Of course, I love you - but naughty girls need fun too

Could it be that I make you feel guilty why
Is there something I can’t see - no
I just don’t buy it - so don’t even try it
I’ve got to go in the place to be

I wanna have some fun
Move my body all night long
Working hard every day
So I ain’t staying home no way

I need it
I want it
Got to
Flaunt it

I’m not a prisoner - can’t you see
Unlock the door so I can breathe
Whenever it comes to you my dear
I say stay with me but you still go
So now I learn, it’s my turn

I want you to stay here with me
You can have fun with me
With you?
Yeah, with me!
Come on... I can have loads of fun without you
Without me?
Yeah!

Yeah, actually I'd go to that.

I went to the county fair every year when I was a kid. The Central Washington State Fair. The biggest names we ever got were the Oak Ridge Boys and the Smothers Brothers...

At the Oregon State Fair we got Richard Marx (twice!), Steppenwolf and Gallagher (yikes). The rest was all country. We'd have killed to see the Smothers Brothers.

Edit: Before you ask... no, I wasn't at the front row with a tarp at Gallagher. In fact, we left about half-way through.
