In concert I have seen Fall Out Boy, Twenty One Pilots and the Stone Roses. The Roses were easily the best.

Where abouts did you see The Stone Roses? Wouldn't mind seeing them if I ever get a chance.

Saw em at a secret gig since my friends father knows Ian Brown, but not at liberty to disclose the location. They've split up now anyways I think.

My first concert was a group named Paul Revere and the Raiders. My aunt got tickets for my 13th birthday and drove me along with my 2 cousins. The Raiders were known for wearing full American Revolutionary War costumes. Here they are:

The lead singer Mark Lindsay was a tall American Indian who had a ponytail which was pretty exotic for the fall of 1966. The group was really good at building up the rock and roll energy. In particular I remember the last few songs. The second to last song was called Hungry. The song breaks into an instrumental solo and the guitarist and the bass player did that move where they are swinging back and forth playing in unison (I think it’s called lockstep). Then all of a sudden Mark grabs his mike stand and jumps between them. He’s singing at the top of his lungs about how hungry he is for his lady and then lets out a blood curdling yell “I can almost t-t-t-t-t-t-t-taste it”. That was it, everyone was on their feet in full-on mania, teenagers jumping up and down on their seats, waving their arms and screaming. They finished that song and before people could get back to their seats went into their current hit record Kicks. The intro is a great guitar lead that they extended 2 or 3 times past the length on the record. The performance, the volume (LOUD) and the pandemonium were overwhelming and to this day I still get a little rush every time I hear that song. For the encore they did a song called Louie, Louie that many groups were playing in the 60s. Someone had the bright idea of handing out free samples of a new product called Carnation Instant Breakfast at the door. It was a chocolate powder that you added to milk. The Raiders started messing around trying to dump the powder on each other. So of course the audience joined in as well. Brown powder was raining down in a cloud from the balcony and everyone’s hair and clothes were covered in it. It was really out of hand. I remember thinking I can’t wait to do this again.

It’s funny to think about this event because very soon after the rock concert experience totally changed. Just a few months later if someone started screaming and shaking at a concert people would assume they were having a bad trip.beatlemaniacs_02_gif

Completely agree. I've been on Roses' concerts several times and each time it was unforgettable, they are amazing

That's an awesome story @sigh butterfly !a-hard-days-night-george-9

I also have a story to share about the first rock concert I have ever been to: it was the opening concert of the Rolling Stones' No Filter tour in Hamburg yesterday.

All in all, it was magical! Without exaggerating, I can say that it has been the best day of my life and I won't stop smiling for at least three weeks now!beatlemaniacs_02_gif

Simply everything was perfect: the atmosphere was magnificent (I will never forget 84 000 people singing 'you can't always get what you want' when seemingly all I had ever wanted was happening at this very moment. What a spine-tingling moment!) And the Stones themselves were in an amazing mood too, Mick Jagger, for instance, danced and walked up and down the stage all the two and a half (!) hours (it felt like 45 minutes), he cracked jokes (also in German), made a Beatles reference, encouraged the audience to sing along and clap their hands, and stroke Ron's head in passing. Just every little thing he did showed the fun he had playing and the joy, it was infectious! Charlie Watts and Keith Richards didn't move very much (what a great surprise in the former's case, eh? He sat at his drumkit like a gentleman) but they continuously smiled while they were playing, as if they were in their own sphere. It really warmed my heart for some reason.

That was the set list, by the way, there were some nice surprises like Play With Fire and Dancing With Mr D and of course the obligatory classics which rocked hard as ever! One of my favourites was Miss You though, I put a video of it in spoilers, the bass and sax solo are stunning!

Not once does the diversity seem forced -- the genius of the record is how the vaudevillian "When I'm 64" seems like a logical extension of "Within You Without You" and how it provides a gateway to the chiming guitars of "Lovely Rita. - Stephen T. Erlewine on Sgt Pepper's

Wow, thanks for the cool review @Martha apple01. What an awesome first concert! I love the set-list, there is even a song on there that I would bet only Necko & Ron N. are familiar with. I just love those kind of surprises at concerts. I may behind the times but I have never read a Stones set-list in which Sympathy was the opening number. You need to come out with a lot of energy to start there beatlemaniacs_02_gif. As you said they all look really happy and genuinely enjoying themselves and your audience. That's going to be a hard concert to top paul-mccartney.

 

Your recollection of You Can't Always Get What You Want brought back a high school memory. I was in the audiovisual dept. and one of my responsibilities was to play music during lunch and such. During an all school sports rally in the gym I thought it would be cool to play music in the quad as students we're leaving. I went to the little broadcast room and cued up YCAGWYW. I heard a big cheer and rumbling noise and thought the rally was over so I started the song. I walked outside to check things out and ooops, the event was still going on and the principal was speaking. It didn't seem right to stop the song so I sat on a bench and waited. Just as Mick got to "but if you try sometimes, you get what you need!!!!" and the Stones started rocking out, the two big gym doors swung open and 3000 kids burst into the quad as if on cue.  I recall it was like watching a scene from a movie.

Saw my first concert in the last 4 years yesterday! The Bruce Dean Quartet, a decent commercial jazz combo, did a nice little outdoor set in the park. Nothing earthshaking but as good jazz as I'm likely to hear in this midsized Ontario city, 200km away from the Toronto area where I lived from 1989 until last month.

I remember George saying 'Blimey, he's always talking about “Yesterday”, you'd think he was Beethoven or somebody' - Paul McCartney
