Iwas at donauinselfest, an open_air festival in vienna with about 36,000 attenders on the biggest stage, the last 4 years. 8so the first time when I was 8 or 9) I never was at a concert for on single person but I'm possibly going to see peter gabreiel and pink floyd (or someone of pink floy who plays the wall) next year

You´re going to see Roger Waters!!?? (I take it that´s who you mean?)

How unfair!! :(

The Jacksons Victory Tour, 1984, in Chicago. Still one of my fondest concert memories.

The Jam. 3 December 1982, Wembley Arena. It was their farewell tour and I think tickets were about £5. I was 15.

Davy Jones of The Monkees in 1999 I was 9.

If you don't who they are…they were basically a tv show/music band based off The Beatles in 1960s.

Lets just say after that concert I stopped liking The Monkees and a few years later when I became a Beatles fan I despised them (The Monkees) because they didn't play their own instruments at first. Now I look back on the show/music as nostalgia of my childhood. My mom took me because I like the music and thought Davy cute, not knowing he was about 50 something then. What is funny, I got grossed about it then, but now I think Paul McCartney was cute when he was younger even though now I know he is 70. a-hard-days-night-paul-3

Edit: The first concert I enjoyed was 3 Door Down in Nov. 2003.

My first concert was Matthew Good Band in 1999, I was 16.  They are a Canadian Band who is no longer together.  It was a really good show, they played quite well!  The girls that I went with were pretty lame though, that was a bit of a downer.  People that were more into the music would have made it more enjoyable.  The tickets were pretty cheap, probably about $25.00.

 

 

"Please don't bring your banjo back, I know where it's been..  I wasn't hardly gone a day, when it became the scene..  Banjos!  Banjos!  All the time, I can't forget that tune..  and if I ever see another banjo, I'm going out and buy a big balloon!"

Trying to convince my parents to let me go to Roger Waters:The Wall in September. The main problem they have is that it´s during term-time and at the Wembley Stadium in London, plus the price (65 quid per person, I think). They understand how important music is to me tho, and particularly Roger (or rather his lyrics), so I might be able to go, I think – I hope.

All my favourite musicians are older than 60 so I want to see them while I have the chance, who knows, they might decide to retire soon and then I´ll never see them. I can´t stand the thought of that.

My first concert was the Beach Boys in 1980, but it was an outdoor show with my parents.  It was crowded, hot and uncomfortable, so they packed my sister and myself up early and we went home.

My first concert paid for with my own money was Cheap Trick with Eddie Money in 1988.  CT were enjoying their resurgence from the 'Lap Of Luxury' album.  I was in the 5th row and caught a pick from Rick Neilson.  No big deal, considering the number of picks he chucks out.  Still though…

E is for 'Ergent'.

I'm deciding I'm going to pull Rain off as my first concert, because they're much cooler. But I must say, they did very well portraying the Beatles, it was stinking awesome.

I am ridiculously jealous of you at the moment! I've only seen awful bootlegs of The Victory Tour :( I've never been to a proper ermagherdbigmegastar concert thingamabob but I've been to a couple of Irish-band gigs but my first concert would be Mo Hat, Mo Gheansaí (my hat, my jumper) a duo who sing in Irish and they are possibly the soundest lads I've ever met (and they do a savage cover of Hey Jude)

You arn't nosy, AppleScruffJunior! a-hard-days-night-george-10  I paid $275.00 CDN, which according to the money converter online is approximately $176 British Pounds.  I don't care!  I paid $165 to see him back in November and THAT was a bargain!  It's money well spent!! a-hard-days-night-george-10
