    hey

    So, in 1972, after missing Alice Cooper and the next week Led Zeppelin, I swore I was going to the next concert. I did. My first concert was David Gates and Bread ( Baby I'm a want you!) It would have been a footnote in history, but the opening act was the only time Steely Dan toured, back in the day! Good save, huh? Steely Dan was the first band I saw live at the Denver coliseum in 1972..... Best concert I ever saw, I was a junior in high school, 1973, billed as the last show ever at the Coliseum because they were opening Mcnichols Arena the next week, and the best concert I ever saw was when I had the pleasure of seeing Pink Floyd do Dark Side of the Moon! I am sure I will write a post about it later. The following week, I saw ZZ TOP open McNichols. hey, dudes and dudettes... share your first best and whatevers. Live music is awesome and uplifting. Brings out the tribal in us all.

        first concert....hmm....well the first one that i intended to see anyways was switchfoot/earshot. It was at the Louisville Cardinals stadium..i probably wouldn't have gone, but it was free, i was bored, and 2 of my friends and a really hot guy were going, so i couldn't pass it up...lol it was like..in...ummmmmm i wanna say august but im not sure
        ive been to other concerts, but not by choice..when i was younger i was forced to go to country concerts and on the fourth of july this year, the fireworks show i was at on the ohio river, Al green was there...not really sure who he was, but i hear he's somewhat famous. and there were drunk people dancing so it was great...an i cant really think of any other. but so far, switchfoot/earshot were the best (i preferred earshot)

            First was the Up In Smoke Tour with Dre, Snoop, Eminem, Ice Cube, Xzibit and Co. in Milwaukee. I believe that was 2000.
            It was definately the best too. Otherwise Outkast with Ludacris at the Rave in Milwaukee.

                        first concert

                        got out of the service (66-69) and my first concert was in the summer of 69. i had a chance to go to some arts and crafts fair in new york, but i told the other guys " i don't want to go to no friggin' arts and crafts fair"--- turned out to be woodstock, but i'm still glad i didn't go. we did take a ride up to a little town on the coast of maine and went to a concert at a civic center that was right on the beach. there were 2 shows, we went to the second one. the band kept jamming all night long into the early hours of the morning. they said during the show that they were going to miss their flight, but didn't care and kept on playing. i will never forget that night. i had never heard of that band before, and this show was the very first USA public appearance as they began thier USA tour, promoting thier first album simply named LED ZEPPELIN. thier first album is still my favorite, although now i have it on a digitally re-mastered cd. it still kicks.

                          The following week, I saw ZZ TOP open McNichols.
                          Cool! Didn't they close McNichols also?

                          and this show was the very first USA public appearance as they began thier USA tour, promoting thier first album simply named LED ZEPPELIN.
                          Wow! I don't think anyone can top that in my book......

                          For me first concert was Aerosmith and Guns-n-Roses in '87 I believe at Sandstone in KC. GNR blew Aerosmith away. What a great band they were.

                              I did not want to go overboard... but here goes. I sat in the 13th row, 13th seat, on the left side of the floor, that first show. Commander cody and his lost planet airmen, then flash caddilac and the continental kids, and the headliner was ZZ TOP and damned if they didn't have frigging longhorn steers on stage with 'em! Many years later, when they closed Big Mac down, the final show was ZZTOP! My buddy from highschool, who I sat next to the first time, we both took our wives and SHUT IT DOWN! We opened it, and closed it! What, 1975 to 2002? Funny thing is, that pink Floyd show was billed as the last concert at the Coliseum, but the Coliseum keeps going strong. ---Right after that, we got to see Commander Cody at a dive bar, he was playing the has been circuit, I loved it. I bought him a cheeseburger, and told him "Dude you were awesome in 1975. You remember when you opened McNichols Sports Arena for ZZ TOP? You were the first band to ever play there 'cause you opened! " God Bless him, the Commander looked at me and his eyes were tearing up, and he said" I did?" The dude burned a few brain cells along the way, since he wrote "Son, you gonna drive me to drinkin' if you don't stop drivin' that Hot Rod Lincoln"
                              I told him "Yeah. You did" I then told him all about it and he slapped my back. It was a good night.
