    My first concert was Aerosmith with, I believe, Fuel as the opener. When Aero toured again a few years later, with Fuel as well, I was supposed to see them, but lack of grades kept me from going. Ever after a friend had gotten me the tix.

    ..and what was with the "Bob Seger..but my first real concert was.." C'mon, I would love to see Seger live.

    hm... my first was Pukkelpop in Belgium, way back in 1994 or 95... my parents were desperate to see Neil Young. I think the first thing I saw was Rob Zombie but I'm not sure. it could be Mudhoney or Foo Fighters as well.

    wow! Cool to see we have a nice mix of young and old here.

    My first concert was Iron Maiden / Accept (Powerslave / Metal Heart tour).
    This was in the summer of 85, at Poplar Creek Music Theater, in Hoffman Estates Illinois.

    Not knocking Bob at all. He put on a great show and I'm glad I saw him. But Rush and Van Halen and AC/DC were what I was really into, and for me there was no way that "Hollywood Nights" could compare to "Xanadu" or "Eruption/Runnin' with the Devil" or "Riff Raff".

    BTW, I have to add my son to the first concert list. I took him to his first concert was last night - Iced Earth with Evergrey and Children of Bodom in Atlanta. How's that for a 10 year old's first show? :headbang:

    Naw man, I seriously think it is cool.
    It amazed me when I went to see Dream Theater this year how many young kids were there.

    When I was 13, there is no way I would have appreciated a band like DT (or any band that had songs over 5 minutes)

    My first concert was Iron Maiden on their "Piece of Mind" tour - I think it was '83. The Michael Schenker Group was the supporting act (AFAIR).

    My first show was Metallica way back on the Justice Tour with Queensryche opening in support for Operation: Mindcrime. The Rychers were accross the street at Tower Records doing a signing session.. I still have the O:M tape w/ all of thier autographs... that was the night that set me on the path of the eternal metalhead..

    Don Henley (of the Eagles) in 1999.
    After that, nothing aside from friends and such until Bruce Springsteen last summer. I've seen Opeth (with Moonspell), Dream Theater, and Evergrey/Children of Bodom/Iced Earth since then.

    My next show? OZZFEST with JUDAS PRIEST!
