    Arlo Guthrie, summer of '64, Carnegie Hall. He was scheduled to perform in St. Lawrence just before Thanksgiving the year before - yeah, THAT weekend.

    Acoustics probably would have been better at SLU. We thought we couldn't hear him (first song) because we were in the nosebleed seats - but after he'd finished that song, a guy stood up and leaned over the first box and called out, "Hey, Arlo - we can't hear you!" Never did get MUCH better. At CARNEGIE HALL????

    One of the funniest was Arlo & Pete at SPAC a couple decades ago - picture all the same concert-goers 30 years later....trying to explain to their kids who these two old guys ARE!!!!

    Literally changed my life. In the 30+ years since that concert, there have only been a few that have come close.

    Default I should read for comprehension!

    Read "first" as "favorite". Doh.

    My first concert was a festival of sorts when I was a freshman at Ohio University. Lots of groups including Billy Preston and I can't even remember who else. I smoked a little wacky backy and HATED it! This was back in 1972 and I was 16.

    My way-cool dad took me to see Rick Springfield when I was maybe 10? I had a big crush! (ETA there are very few people in real life I would admit this to!)

    Great Big Sea at the Fesitval of Friends. Google is telling me it was in 1997, so I would have been 6!!! I vividly remember them playing "Donkey Riding" as the opening song. Of course, at 6, my parents were definitely there.

    My first unsupervised concert was Dir en grey - my favourite metal band. I lost my voice for days afterwards!

    Most recently, I saw Marilyn Manson, which has been a dream of mine since I was 5 years old. Love that man!

    Garth Brooks

    I was 16. He came to Richmond during the Fresh Horses tour and I went with my 4-H leader. Wait, it gets better. SHE insisted on making a poster that said:

    "We All Are Having A Garth-gasm. How About You, G?"

    We were sixth or seventh row on the side of the stage and he saw it. And he read it. And he doubled over laughing during "Beaches of Cheyenne". He does not lip-sync.

    Harry Chapin at a local high school in the early 70s. But that wasn't particularly memorable, since an old friend of mine had to remind me just recently that I had gone to it!

    Leo Sayer at Paul's Mall, a club in downtown Boston. I don't remember exactly when that was but I was definitely under age. My sisters spent quite a while getting me dressed up and made up to look older. I guess the concept of actually checking IDs wasn't big back then.

    And then finally, my first actual rock concert, the summer between high school and college. That was 1976. It was the Eagles, Fleetwood Mac and Boz Skaggs at Schaefer Stadium in Foxboro Mass. Now known by a different name but where the Patriots play. At least I think they still do.

    My big concert-going years were the 1980s. But I wasn't particularly well off financially so I missed some big ones. Still was an amazing time of my life and I look back on it fondly.

    I went to a Bayside/Valencia concert when I was 16. But my first hardcore concert experience was....Warped Tour.

    The first concert was Rick Nelson, at my college. He and the band were great, and the people who met him said he was really nice, and down to earth. It wasn't too long before he was killed.

    I also went to see John Denver twice also, and he was good too.

    Some of these are great!

    My first concert was, embarrassingly enough, Cyndi Lauper. Huey Lewis and The News opened. I was 12.

    ETA, Dispatcher, you lucky duck. What an experience!

    Simon & Garfunkle in Saratoga Springs. Think it might have been back in '67 - my friend was old enough to drive, so that seems about right.

    It was awesome!

    Bush in 6th grade, but more importantly, Hanson in 7th.
