My first concert was Metallica's S&M show at Madison Square Garden in 1999.
Wow, that's dope!
Yeah the drummer is a super nice guy.
Also, my bad for replying so late, somehow missed the notification I guess.
My first concert was AFI at Radio Fritz on Oct 3rd, 2006. We were around like 30 people and after each 2 or 3 songs some of us were allowed to ask them questions... It was a fun experience.
Saw them a few days later (Oct 7th in Cologne). Sadly I don't remember much from that evening...
Marilyn Manson in 1997. I was 14 and my mum dropped me and my friend off and we almost skipped the show. We were terrified, we weren't into the whole both scene and just had standard 1997 teenage clothes on. We eventually found the courage to go in and the show was amazing. Needless to say our mum's had a few questions and were slightly worried after the show. I'm 99% certain that my mum didn't go home and just waited in her car round the corner for us.
Was that the tour that Thirty Seconds To Mars also played on? I saw that tour in NYC in 2005.
Loved that album... bought it three times since my parents kept taking it away.
Yup. However 30STM was only on the first half of the tour so the second half got The Black Maria. They were signed to Victory Records and I remember them being pretty good.
First concert was Radio 104 Fest in 99, put on by our local rock station, with a few kids from my travel soccer team. As a 7th grader, Orgy was my favorite band. They called it the big ass bbq, and I got a T-shirt and my mom wouldn’t let me wear it to school, so I had to sneak it underneath my sweatshirt or jacket. www.courant.com/news/connecticut/hc-xpm-1999-05-30-9905280018-story,amp.html
the first scene concert I went to was the finch/from autumn to ashes/senses fail/steel train tour in 2003. Steel train didn’t fit in, but I hadn’t heard of them before and liked them.
The first concert I ever saw was when I was 14--It was to see "New Kids On The Block"--This was before I discovered heavy metal music..I look back now and I am like, "Wow, they really sucked"...
Possibly the worst lineup one could construct? I thought P. Roach was heavy as fuck though. Also, Nickelback has banger after banger. Hinder and Saving Abel were atrocious and their career trajectories indicated so.
Nickelback / Papa Roach would actually be pretty fun, tbh.
I’d go see NKotB in a heartbeat lol
May 5, 2006. Fall out boy, AAR, Hawthorne Heights, and From First To Last. That was dope
fftf was a good show when i saw them, probably around the same time period. it was at the ottobar in baltimore and there's a balcony where sonny climbed up from the stage and hung off the side of the balcony over the crowd mid-song. i've been to a lot of shows there, but that's the only one where i had seen that.
Hanson at Great Woods in Mansfield, MA. June of 1998.
New Found Glory, H2O, River City High, RX Bandits @ the Electric Factory, 10/27/01.
Saves the Day, Thursday, Hey Mercedes, Whatever It Takes @ Club Krome, 11/24/01 (a matinee!)
Weezer, Saves the Day, Ozma @ First Union Arena, 2/9/02
Haha dirty lil secret I shall now reveal to the internet - I was 12(?) .. Jones Beach, Long Island, NY.... Fastball opening (actually still kind of like them), Lol, Sugar Ray and The Goo Goo Dolls headlining.... With parents in tow obviously ♂️♂️
I also went to that tour in Hartford. Right when the Goo Goo Dolls we’re big with “dizzy...” it was actually a great show
Haha I was too young, really. Also, it was pouring buckets. Ask me when I'm feeling less open and it's Pennywise At the Bowery lol
Jones Beach storms are the worst, too. My section got hit with lightning when I tried to see REM there on their final tour.
I do really believe, at least where I'm at, Jones beach has not a bad seat in the house for one of the larger venues
Totally agreed with that. And if the weather's good, it's quite an amazing place to see a show.
Roger Waters playing Dark Side of the Moon in its entirety back in 2006
Honestly, I think it was Bamboozle 2008
I remember seeing Aiden, Mindless Self Indulgence, Streetlight Manifesto, Red Jumpsuit Apparatus & Snoop Dogg
Love this thread! First big concert was the 2003 Honda Civic Tour on my 14th birthday w/ Good Charlotte, New Found Glory, MxPx, and The Movielife at the SJSU Events Center. Still consider it the best day of my life.
A few days before that I saw a local band called Flinch (not Finch) play my high school auditorium.
