    Do you remember the first concert you went to? How old were you, and who did you go with?

    Best concert?

    And...the last one you've been to?

    Does Raffi count? I went to one of his concerts when I was 5. With my mom!

    First 'real' concert would have been Alice Cooper when I was 14.

    Best concert experience was Lollapalooza. The Ramones, Rancid, and Metallica just to name a few that day. But I think the last concert would have been Match Box 20 (and Train)

    Marianas Trench is coming to town. Its been a while since I went to a concert, might have to hit that one.

    I've only been to the one concert, Great Big Sea.

    It was just a couple years ago... I was probably 19 or 20 (it was a birthday/Christmas gift, I don't remember if it was before or after birthday).

    Very much enjoyed it, I'm just not a concert person.

    The first one I remember is Trisha Yearwood when I was like 14 or something.

    I think the best shows I've been to are OCMS. I would follow them around the world if I could. :)

    First was Toby Keith, I was 16. The BEST (by far) and last (also cheapest) was the Red Hot Chili Peppers. In October. It was amazing. Of course, they are my favorite band of all time. There was nothing special about the performance, it was just actually FINALLY seeing them live, singing, screaming, and dancing drunk like a maniac that made it awesome. There were a bunch of like 18 year olds just standing around behind and in front of us and me and my friend were totally losing our minds, lol. I bet they thought we were nuts. I didn't really care.

    My first concert was Britney Spears when I was 7 years old. We always find it funny because my outfit was a Disco Ball colored Tank Top & Jeans with sparkly horses on them. :p

    Best concert so far: Lady Gaga's The Monster Ball.

    Last concert, well, I'll just count Lady Gaga's Born This Way Ball, since I'm going on the 6th.

    :D

    First one I was forced to was Charlie Pride.

    First one I choose was Meatloaf.

    But my favorites have been Great Big Sea, those boy's can sing!

    Next is Weird Al in April, lol.

    First- Pete Segar when I was about 10. I was at the county fair with my family. Don McClean was scheduled to perform. He was there, but had laryngitis, so Pete Segar performed instead. Hubby & I have seen Don McClean at a dinner club 3 or 4 times since then, and at Central Park with Garth Brooks.

    Last one was Toby Keith & Trace Adkins almost 4 years ago. That was just a couple of weeks after we saw Trace at the Capitol on Memorial Day Weekend.

    The best? It's a toss up between the Garth concert at Central Park and the the first Toby one we went to (the one with Trace was great, but a couple of years before that we were something like 16th row. Any closer, and Toby's sweat would have dripped on us when he was on the "runway" part of the stage).

    First concert, I was 11, and saw a local radio station concert. It was shaggy, fat joe, Vanessa Carlton, shakira, LMNT, o-town, and others.

    First concert I saw by choice...not really a "concert" but a motion city soundtrack show when I was 14. Bayside and the starting line opened, but neither was signed at that point.

    Best was probably wilco in Central Park 2011. That might have been the last one, too, except local stuff.

    Nsync!! Back in 2001, so I was.... 10 years old.
    I went with my 2 sisters. BEST CONCERT EVAR.

    Last concert I went to was a few years ago. Also, it was the 2nd concert I've ever been to lol I don't really care for concerts. But anyway, I went to see The Starting Line and Four Year Strong. That was a good one too but I was pretty sick and felt like crap so didn't get to enjoy it too much.

    We went to see Sharon, Lois, and Bram (The Elephant Show) - my mom isn't sure if maybe we went to see Sesame Street and I don't seem to remember it so we're going with Sharon, Lois, and Bram. I think I was four or five.

    After that it was Boyz II Men, then NKOTB.

    I just remembered that NKOTB and Boyz II Men are going on tour together (with 98 Degrees but meh, I was an N'Sync girl at that point.) "The Package." And how badly I would like to go see them together. Like I'm all a flutter thinking about it.

    I just told my mom that and she said "So we just need Sharon, Lois, and Bram to open for them?" My eyes got all big and I was like OMG IF THEY WERE TOURING AGAIN I WOULD SO GO.


    Best concert ever was when I saw NKOTB ummm three years ago I think it was now. Just amazing. I saw them at the same arena I saw them when I was a kid, they came on stage the SAME WAY they did when I saw them as a kid... it was perfect. Amazing. And Jordan took his shirt off.

    Before that my best concert ever was Brand New, MxPx, and Dashboard Confessional. I bought tickets and was supposed to go with a friend up to Chicago. He had been up late the night before studying and COMPLETELY overslept, wouldn't answer this phone because he was just 100% out. My mom was out of town at a conference and I called her crying because I wanted to go so bad and I couldn't get ahold of my friend (this was before I had my own car.) She asked me when the concert was, told me to keep calling, and we'd figure it out when she got home. She came home from her conference, got right back in the car with me, and drove me to Chicago to see Dashboard Confessional. She HATES driving in Chicago (I'm the one who drives up there now) but she knew how much I wanted to go, so she took me. She used my friend's ticket and she stood all the way back by the seats while I was in the mosh pit for MxPx LOL. It was when the Cubs were in the MLB playoffs with Florida and they were playing that night. She stopped at a gas station to make sure she knew how to get out and asked if the game was over or not because she didn't want to get stuck in game traffic. The guy at the station said "No, it's the 7th inning still," and I immediately blurted out "WHAT'S THE SCORE??" LMAO. And the Cubs were WHOOPIN' up on 'em too. And my mom is all WHO CARES ABOUT THE SCORE I JUST WANT TO GET HOME.
    Coolest mom ever. I love her so much.

    I took her to NKOTB with me this past time since she took me when I was a kid. She had a blast but probably not as much fun as I did LOL. I tried...


    Last concert I was at, I got to see Daughtry a second time, free via the radio station (took my mom to that too.) And Safetysuit was the opening band AAAAAH SO GOOD. Daughtry is always awesome but OMFG SAFETYSUIT. It was amazing.

    I think my first one was Van Halen. Best one I ever went to was The Grateful Dead. People watching at that concert was the best! During my teenage years I went to so many concerts. Lots of good memories.

    Good lord, my very first concert was in 1999. Britney Spears opening for 98 Degrees. Coincidentally, the last concert I went to was Britney Spears.. but in 2012 and Pauly D was opening for her.

    The best concerts I've ever been to have been every The Hold Steady show. Bane is a close second.

    You'll be pleased to know that there's a summer tour occurring with the likes of NKOTB, BIIM & 98*.

    You can also bet your arse that my bestie & I will be in attendance at one of their stops. :D

    My boys get a kick out of the fact that their redneck mother listened to Kiss when she was a teenager.
