    I love to see the generation gap amongst RJ guys. I so look forward in seeing what answers I will be getting for your very first concert you attended, and when it was attended.

    Mine was Kenny Rogers and Dolly Parton in 1979... Please dont hold it against me... LOL...

    late bloomer as far as concerts go but when I got started it took off.

    Saw Edie Brickall and New Bohemiams in 1989 in NYC when I was 19 and think I saw like 10 other concerts later that year

    I feel so young. It was in 2005. 99X in Atlanta put on free concerts during the summer and this one was Weezer. It was pretty awesome, they are very good live. It was also my first time riding MARTA if anyone knows Atlanta very well icon_eek.gif

    Fleetwood Mac.
    Tusk tour, 1980, Kemper Arena, Kansas City, MO
    They were totally coked out, and to this day, it was one of the best shows I ever saw.

    jprichva saidFifth Dimension, 1972, Pine Knob Music Theater
    Bette Midler, 1972, Masonic Auditorium, Detroit

    Wow, that was early Midler. Was she still with Barry Manilow? I caught the live TV performance that made her career on Carson's Tonight Show, as she herself states it did. She truly brought the house down, a legendary performance. I really like her.

    My first big concert was John Denver in NYC's Madison Square Garden, either in 1976 or 77, I can't recall. I was wearing coveralls, which enjoyed a short fad back then, just the thing for a Denver concert.

    And wore them to an executive corporate board meeting at CBS, Inc, a couple of hours earlier at "Black Rock," which got some shocked takes from the suits. But despite looking like a farmer I gutted the Vice President for Shareholder Relations, over an incompetent annual shareholder report he was about to publish, that we were reviewing.

    The head of CBS Press Relations later told me it was the most ruthless but skillful thing in a boardroom he had ever seen in his career. I should have stayed with CBS, instead of continuing my Army career and moving to Germany. One of my many mistakes. icon_sad.gif

    Strangely, I saw Denver again barely a year later in West Berlin, Germany, of all places.

    Dood, it's only a gap if you make it so . . .

    Leon Russell; @ the Forum in Inglewood, about 1971/72. I missed many of the "greats;" because, I didn't care that much- the radio was free ;-)

    Russell had 3 female back-up vocalists who were fantastic singers. In the midst of the concert, you should have seen the engineers scramble to find-and-fix a major blown fuse; Russell's piano was still amplified, so he kept on playing; after having mumbled something to the band, about "keeping cool a bit." He threw Tambourines into the audience, and I did not even come close to procuring one. Prior 2 the fuse incident, he had some modern preacher come out & "pitch" for about 5 min., or so; but it seemed that, even in the midst of the hippie-jesus-Freak era, his sermon was, largely, unappreciated by we, the modern pot-head generation.

    I don't recall if he played "Roll Away The Stone" but it still remains one of my favorites.

    First concert without my parents or friends' parents in tow was to see Rod Stewart at the old Tampa Stadium back in 1985. The Hooters and Starship were the opening acts. I remember having a great time and saw Stewart again around 1988 and more recently in 2005 I think.
