Not at your high school cafeteria but a big show with thousands of people there....

Mine was Kiss- Slaughter and Little Ceaser in Weedsport, Ny in the Summer of 1990. Still not sure I've ever seen a more exciting concert.

You?

Yep, I'm talking about arena type shows. But if you've never seen one, list your 1 st club show.

My first arena concert was Loverboy with Zebra opening. Razz Good show though.


My first "metal" show was KISS with Accept opening in March of 1984. Excellent show.

Mostly came for Dio. But it was all good.

I'd have loved to have seen Cinderella and Dokken back in their prime.

This was the tour in support of Erase the Slate so Reb Beach was on guitar. They sounded great, but Don had injured his leg so he was on a stool for the show.

Cinderella was phenomenal on this tour.

I wish I could've seen the Hot in the Shade Tour! They had a great setlist for that tour. I was only 2 years old at the time though lol!

First big "rock" show was Huey Lewis and the News at the Spectrum in Philadelphia, probably around '85 or '86.

I can't remember my first "metal" show. Might have been Ozzy at the Spectrum too. Or Aerosmith maybe.

I think I saw that tour too. Poison and Slaughter were on the line-up too, weren't they?

I saw Cinderella back in '88 or '89, again at the Spectrum, touring for Long Cold Winter and then years later on that Dokken/Poison tour. The sound and set list was almost identical to the show 10 years earlier. Both great.

I saw that same exact show at Star Lake Amphitheater (now known as the KeyBank Pavilion) that year. I agree. It was a great show despite the rain.

George Thorogood And The Destroyers at an arena that was turned into a huge bar basically. At least 3000 people were there and he put on a pretty good show.

Mine was certainly not a metal show, but I would consider it part of the rock category.

Michael Jackson's "Bad" tour 1988 at the Forum in L.A.

My first Concert was Queensryche opening for Kiss on their Animalize tour, at the Aladdin theater Las Vegas nevada. Sadly, I didn't go to another show till iron maiden came around on their seventh son tour. Made up for it since, and have gone to well over two hundred shows. I pretty much stay away from the big ones these days though. Depends on the band, but I refuse to spend stupid money to see most bands.

I queued for about nine hours for tickets to the Bad tour. I didn't go to the show and had no desire to, I was purely there to keep my sister company sigh

Yeah, it was a big production rock show and he was still in his prime years back then. Before that, I always liked watching his Thriller video and Beat It was always a catchy tune.
