What was the first concert (tickets sold) you ever went to? You didn't have to buy the ticket but it was an event that admission was being charged for.

But Pink Floyd, Giants Stadium is the first big one.

First one? War at the Santa Monica Civic sometime around 1970. The tickets were a present from an aunt. I was hip to Low Rider, and ready to go home after that.

First one by choice? Pink Floyd Animals tour at Anaheim stadium around 1977

Florida Gulf Coast Symphony in 1972 or 73, can't recall which, or whether is was Tchaikovsky or Rimsky-Korsakov.

However, I think you are looking at a different genre of music. In that case, it would be Crosby, Stills & Nash (Young already left).

My first true rock concert was J. Geils at the Boston Garden, November 1975. Later part of that show became part of this album:

Santana at The Dreambowl, about 1969. Perhaps the best I ever saw, and later, there were a lot.

K-SHE’S 5th Annual St. Valentine’s Day Massacre
Kiel Auditorium
John Kay and Steppenwolf
Spirit, Fool’s Face also

No easy to see the stage through the smoke and haze. It was billed as a big deal because Kay had been apart from the band for quite a while. And they totally rocked.

Joan Baez, Pepperland, 1971. Probably the same tour that Graylocks saw. Note the price...all tickets $2.

They really do it. It doesn't happen as often as it should, because scientists are human and change is sometimes painful. But it happens every day. I cannot recall the last time something like that happened in politics or religion." (1987) -- Carl Sagan

Even though Classic Rock is by far my genre of choice, my wife, then fiancé wanted to see Kenny Rogers.
So, of course I went. Early 80's, and it was a theater in the round. Band in the middle, Kenny rotated around
singing from different mics.
It was a good show.

Creedence Clearwater Revival, summer 1970, Jacksonville.

A great experience, and thereafter I thought all rock concerts would be equally stellar. Alas, I can barely recall that naive 17-year-old wearing the purple tie-dyed bell bottoms...Old Fogette

I remember those shows. I think it was 1972. I didn't get to go.

My first concert was The Jackson 5. My uncle gave me the tickets. That was in '71 I think. It was at the Hollywood Bowl.

Don't recall which was the first concert I went to, but do recall the first I paid for and didn't get to go because the date was cancelled. Tickets were for ELP during their Brain Salad Surgery tour in '73.

I’m going to date myself here... don’t laugh!

Ben Folds Five. I was 14. I won’t say what year it was, but it pretty early in their career and before they got kind of depressing. It was amazing! I soon went to an Offspring show and then saw Megadeth and lots of other stuff.

They Might Be Giants and Weird Al would end up being the artists I’d see the most times by far.

Missing Persons at Astroworld (had to buy tickets to get in) about 1981.

My first real concert was Black Sabbath with Ian Gillian singing, around 1983.

“Neutrality helps the oppressor, never the victim. Silence encourages the tormentor, never the tormented." - Eli Weisel

"To announce that there must be no criticism of the President, or that we are to stand by the President, right or wrong, is not only unpatriotic and servile, but is morally treasonable to the American public." - Theodore Roosevelt (1918)

"I don’t want to see religious bigotry in any form. It would disturb me if there was a wedding between the religious fundamentalists and the political right. The hard right has no interest in religion except to manipulate it." - Billy Graham 1981

"Politics and governing demand compromise. But these Christians believe they are acting in the name of God, so they can't and won't compromise" - Barry Goldwater

Cheap Trick, summer of 1978 at the Fox Theater in San Diego. Pat Travers opened for them. It was so loud, I couldn't hear very well for about three days!

Pink Floyd 11/1971, Jethro Tull 11/1971, Yes 12/1971 (co-billed w/King Crimson).
Spring of 1972 concerts were Moody Blues, ELP, and The Rolling Stones in the summer (I think).

All in Boston. It was a great time to see live shows performed by the best musicians ever.

From my post,February 01, 2014:
The Yardbirds featuring Jimmy Page playing in the gymnasium of my high school, Christ the King, Queens, New York, 1967. I was standing literally right in front of them for the whole set and have an original print of this photo, purchased from the school photographer along with an interview in the original school newspaper given by either Chris Dreja or Jim McCarty. I also have all their autographs on a napkin.

You're faking it! Nobody forgets their first concert, especially if it's a CSNY one.
