Mr. PianoMan gave me this idea when he mentioned seeing Disturbed and Breaking Benjamin recently in concert.

So, what's the first/best/most memorable concert you've been to?

Who would you most like to see if given a chance?

I can only remember 1 concert I attended with my first wife about 1972 in Atlantic City, NJ on the old Steel Pier when we went to The Association. Sat in the front row next to the very large speakers. Another was not quite a concert but it was the live road performance of "Jesus Christ Superstar". Very musical and loud just the same.

I know I already said what my first concert was but I’d give my left nut to go back in time and see AC/DC performing Thunderstruck live back in their prime. I’m not even much of a classic rock guy but I’d kill to be there the first time they performed that

My wife and I have gone to a few large stand up comedy shows like Gabriel Iglesias and Jeff Dunham but never a musical act.

I'm actually going to my first concert next weekend. I won a pair of tickets to the Indy car race our company is the main sponsor for. I'll be taking my 7 year old boy, with Carrie Underwood doing a 60 minute show pre-race. After the race Kenny Chesney will perform a 90 minute show.

One I'd love to see live is Shinedown.

July 4 1973 Montrose IL Merle Haggard and his band did a outdoor concert. A flatbed trailer was the stage. It was awesome.

The first concert I ever went to was Jay Z's tour for the black album in November of 2003 in Madison square garden. I went with a group of friends and we had a blast.

Rob, you mentioned Shinedown. I think the lead singer is Brent Smith, right? That guy has an incredible voice. I’d go to one of their concerts in a heartbeat.

I'm not much for concerts but for a number of years I was going to the Toby Keith shows in Tinley Park, IL. One year happened to be on a holiday weekend which made for a much smaller crowd and a much happier me.

PJ that experience sounds amazing.

First was a Day on the Green at the cow palace in Oakland. Montrose, Kansas several other big acts. I was a kid, went with my older siblings. This was long before the wear your helmet generation took over.

Most memorable would have to be Tool in Denver shortly before the plandemic hit. Also though Art Garfunkel at the covention arts center in Colorado Springs.his voice was phenomenal and it was a small venue with good acoustics.

Favorite one that I've played in was either the Market Steet Fair in SF. Horrible time slot, early am, but when I hit my kick drum I could see the windows rattling in the storefronts. Attendance was about 20k. Redrocks had phenomenal sound. We played a weekend day slot where local bands would come up. Not much for Attendance but worth it for the sound alone
