Too long ago to remember, it may have been the Beatles at Hammersmith Odeon, or perhaps earlier, the Stones, at Eel Pie Island, or the Yardbirds at I think something like Cooks Clique.
Aerosmith/Skid Row. I think that was 1990 and I saw them in Richmond, VA.
The Beatles at Dodger stadium. A neighbor boy's girlfriend had a conflict and so he asked me to go. I was thrilled until the girl on the double date gleefully mentioned I was only there because his girlfriend was busy. I was too nervous to enjoy the concert.
the first "big" concert I remember was driving to SF from N California to see the Dead Kennedys -- I was about eleven. Early 80s?
I was 14, and went with my friends on a Bijelo Dugme concert. This rock band was the best one in ex Yougoslavia state. Frontman Bregovic today makes film music. Arizona Dream with Johnny Deep is the one of movies he worked for.
Judas Priest and Dokken, June of 1986. I was sixteen years old and had the time of my life!
It was not actually a concert. hahaha!
It was just a fan-meeting... Lee Min Ho's fan-meeting here in the Philippines... but it's like a concert anyway...hahahaha! ^^
Lee Min Ho (A South Korean actor who is best known for his role in a Korean drama--Boys over Flowers-- as Goo Jun Pyo, handsome and a spoiled rich guy, leader of F4.)
Johnny Cash in about 1974 at Milwaukee Summerfest down at the Lakefront. I heard him sing "Man in Black" for the first time and will never forget the emotion of seeing him up front, live, on that small stage, singing that poignant song with black hat, black shirt, black boots, black guitar! It touched me DEEPLY and articulated for me, the principles my mother instilled in me and for which she herself always stood. It also confirmed what young people now call our "hippy dippy" protests of the Vietnam War.
I wear the black for the poor and the beaten down,
Livin' in the hopeless, hungry side of town,
I wear it for the prisoner who has long paid for his crime,
But is there because he's a victim of the times.
And, I wear it for the thousands who have died,
Believen' that the Lord was on their side,
I wear it for another hundred thousand who have died,
Believen' that we all were on their side.
I'll never forget that outdoor concert and will always be glad I went. Don't miss the concert you were meant to see.
I saw Cheap Trick and Survivor in the 80's. It was very exciting as I was a teenager. I also remember seeing Michael Jackson in Chicago, EXCELLENT show.
