When was your first concert?

What band, where and when was it?

Mine actually is quite embarrasing, I was 11 and my cousin brought me to see Bon Jovi in the Point in 1995. I can't really remember much of it but I knew that the pyro-technics annoyed the hell outta me that night. Can't remember who was supporting them either so if ya know then please tell me.

Can't actually remember for certain which was first but it was either Queen at Slane or Metallica at the SFX in 1986.
Was a long time ago.

First gig I was meant to go to was Slane '92 to see Faith No More and Gn'R. But then I had a bloody music theory exam scheduled the same day and mummy-dearest insisted I go to that, so had to turn down the ticket I'd been offered.

First gig I ACTUALLY went to was SunStroke '95. The line-up consisted of Sponge, Mudhoney, Pennywise, White Zombie, and Soundgarden. I went to see White Zombie, followed by Soundgarden.

Zombie stole the show. Soundgarden were a major disappointment that day

The Bee-Gees when they last played in Ireland in the RDS, i was about 11 or so and was brought by my parents. The first concert that i actually bought tickets for myself was the Muse/Ash concert in Cork a couple of years ago.

My first was U2 with Ash for support in Belfast 98, and it was rather good ...

Slane, with Nickleback, I'm afraid. Sounded like fun when my girlfriend dragged me up. Strangely enough I enjoyed myself, whatever you say about Nickleback they do a decent show. Hoping to scrape enough cash together to see AC/DC in Milton Keynes in June. Probably won't make it.

My first proper concert was Ozzfest, which turned out to be a bit of a baptismal of fire, as I got punched in the head quite a bit, especially during slayer.
