I do remember loving SOAD though

The line was

Main stage

Ozzy Osbourne (cancelled)
System of a Down
The Lost Prophets
Drowning Pool
Black Label Society

2nd stage

American Head Charge
Ill Niño
Hell Is for Heroes
Pulse Ultra
Me mother wouldn't let me go to that one.
"Apparently" the leaving certificate is more important than some gig. Hon!

My first gig was The Divine Comedy in Galway.
Left after they did the Fr Ted theme tune.

Mine was supposed to be Limp Bizkit in punchestown but that got cancelled after Fred f*cked up his back.

Ended up being Papa Roach with the murderdolls and hell is for heroes in the point

Green Day in The Point on their Warning Tour - 2000/2001?

My older brother took me along with him - he was 18/19, so I must have been 12/13.
He had a fight with my Mam about me skipping school after lunch so we could get into town early to queue for the pit, as there wasn't a chance I was missing out on the pit at my first concert.
We got the bus in and I remember "The Walk" to The Point (my brother is 6foot with long legs so I remember it being a struggle to keep up)

Green Day weren't the HUGE stars they became, so my brother was pointing to "Tickets still on sale" signs saying, "Poor Billie, one day he'll sell out huge arenas." We got into the barriers and he was chatting to all the security lads and sneaking me by to get as close to the first people in as possible.

The ticket guy ripped my ticket on the wrong end and the stub. I still have half my ticket in a photo album book

We got The Pit I had a fantastic time and wanted to go to as many gigs as possible then.

Pretty sure, I just condensed my Junior Cert English Essay in this post

I had the fun experience of bringing my big brother to see Radiohead last year in the 3Arena and his GF was delighted to get The Luas, as it seems she hated "The Walk" which completely brought me back to that night.

And now this evening, its Spice Girls in Croker with the girls

Edit: Yeah, that was a stream of consciousness - haha! Nice memories though, thanks OP

If you told me 10-13 years ago id see so many gigs in person i would not believe u anyway

first gig- Oxegen 2007 Day 1 (not many metal or rock bands on the day, Snow Patrol was the main reason i was there. Saw a good bit of Muses set before the bus home)

First metal/Rock gig was Metallica supported by Tenacious D in Marley Park on 20th Aug 2008. Dream come true at the time. Saw them a year later in the same venue, then not again til 2017 in Glasgow. Seeing them in Slane in 2 weeks time

I was there and also at Massacre, Morgoth and Immolation. That was a savage concert. McGongales had some great gigs, Morbid Angel and Unleashed, Carcass. Smoe nights.

Forgot all about this although don't think I was planning on going. Crazy to think LB were on the verge of headlining Punchestown

Metallica at RDS in 03. Was like 14, and I remember 2 things from that day.

1. Getting crushed so much during Battery
2. The Darkness being absolutely brilliant.
