    That's your first concert? hahahahahaha!

    My last concert was probably the Flaming Lips or the Roots. And of course, I HAVE TICKETS TO BACK TO BACK TOM WAITS CONCERTS!!!!!

    long story short, I rule. I've probably seen about 40 concerts in my short life...

    last time i saw a concert was in Washington last October (i think)...drove 3 hours to watch a 2 hour concert then drove back...but it was well worth it.

    Elan (Atias) was the opener and UB40 was the main show....love UB40, sucked that Astro wasn't there (had visa issues).

    would love to see UB40 again, but with Ali Campbell no longer with them, it aint the same. Might go see Elan with the Wailers next month though.

    I caught them several years ago in a small venue. One of the most entertaining stage shows I've ever seen. An opener of theirs was The Mooney Suzuki, who also put on a hella rockin show.

    My first and only concert so far was Rob Zombie in 2001. I'm really hoping to start going to more soon, so many of my music heroes are just getting older and older so I better see em now!

    40? Pah! I must have been to at least triple that. Does that make me rule twice as much?

    Just this year I've been to see Down, Korpiklaani, Turisas, Fairport Convention, I have 3 festivals coming up this summer, and Flogging Molly & DragonForce tickets already booked for later in the year.

    Y'all need to get out to more concerts!

    Huey Lewis and the News are a hell of a band and from what I hear are awesome live. I'd love to see them some day. You sure could've done a whole lot worse for your first concert.

    My first concert was so very, very long ago. Stryper was touring on the "In God We Trust" tour with Hurricane along for the ride. It was Hurricane's last date on the tour and they pretended to tear down all their equipment at the end of the set, but I was far enough away I could tell they were really being gentle with it as they laid things down.

    My last three concerts were Disturbed in Sioux Falls, Disturbed in Minneapolis, and Dethklok in Vermillion. My next concert is Dethklok again in Minneapolis.

    And there've been tons in between. But I'm pretty sure I win at losing for having my first concert experience be Stryper. Nobody can top that.

    My first concert was Warrant. It's like Stryper, but without God's approval. :( 

    But I'll see you at Dethklok!

    Slacker, I've probably been to double yours ;)  Although I've slowed down in the last few years. At my height at uni I was at gigs 5 nights out of 7 ;) 

    Last gig I went to was Reel Big Fish in Feb or March. Next one I've got booked is Dragonforce in September but hopefully I'll go to a few more before then :)

    I can't remember what the last concert I went to was... might have been Bush in '95.
