Horslips in St. Mary's Hall, Portlaoise, sometime in the late 70's.
There's a gig listed here for 1st May 1976; maybe that was it, but I've a nagging feeling it was a year or two later:

Ozzfest 2002 with my father in Ireland (fair play dad for bringing me)

I was only 11 but remember it very well weirdly enough

Ozzy cancelled and I was super annoyed and didnt stay for Tool who headlined(I didn't even know them)

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

Either Focus or Elton John and Ray Cooper in the National Stadium, in the late 1970's.

Can't remember which of them came first, but both were great!

I didn't go to first concert until I was 19, Evanescence in Manchester, I didn't know what to expect with concerts, I was surprised at how loud it was, I don't understand why they need to be so loud in a small indoor venue.

First gig was Faith No More supported by Prong in the Top Hat. Around '89 I think. FNM arrived 2 hours late as they were filming top of the pops !
