I had nothing to compare it to, and I was 16, so I was blown away... lol!

My first was Poison with Cinderella, Dokken and Slaughter in 2000. Still one of the best I've been to.


I saw that same show in Atlanta. I've seen Cinderella many times and that was by far the best show.

Priest on the Defenders Of The Faith tour with Great White opening. I was 12. First concert ever, I went with some highschool kids. My thought was "dang this is loud!" My friend said "way to break you in to going to concerts- Priest!!!" Also first time I heard cussing from the stage. At 12 years old I guess I was shocked to hear Jack Russell drop F bombs.

California Jam in 1974.  Tagged along with an older sister and the guy she was fornicating with that week. It was my very first concert ever.

At what they called Rock Superbowl in Miami, I was 12 years old, it was Journey headlining, with Aerosmith ( with Jimmy Crespo not Joe Perry on guitar) and Bryan Adams

Winger and Slaughter in the fall of 1990.  Kiss was suppose to headline, but cancelled because I believe Paul was sick.  Wasn't really a fan of those bands, but the tickets was free and I was like "What the hell".

It's interesting how the Hot in the Shade tour was the first "big time" show for so many people here. I've never understood the disdain for that album, even given the fact that it was essentially a bunch of demos put together with minimal work to make it something worthy of a release. Even if there a few duds I still enjoy the record quite a bit. From the footage I've seen of that tour, the band had a lot of energy on stage and the performances were on point despite any turmoil that may have been mounting on a personal level amongst band members.

I saw this tour too also with free trickers that were thrown from a roof by a radio station. I caught one ticket so I went by myself. Don't remember who opened but I've also seen Winger and Slaughter so it was prob those 2. I remember winger being quite boring but the music was good. Loved Slaughter and Kiss. Great show! I didn't know there was any turmoil in Kiss at the time I thought that lineup got along pretty well.
