    Van Hagar, with Alice in Chains opening, 1991, Hampton Coliseum, VA.
    And we didn't even get mugged after.

    Suckiest concert was there, too - Smashing Pumpkins, Mellon Collie Tour. Up yours, Billy Corgan, for stopping in the middle of a song and trying to get a kid kicked out of the show for accidentally hitting him on the head with a glowstick or something. And then Jimmy Chamberlin killed the second drummer/keyboardist with heroin.
    I disabled signatures.

    Stevie Nicks, "Rock a Little" tour May 7, 1986 at the Baltimore Civic Center. Peter Frampton was the opener on that tour.

    Second show I went to was at the Civic Center, the Clash of the Titans tour. Anthrax, Megadeth, Slayer, and Alice in Chains. What an experience.

    Saw that tour in Charlotte... Brutal... Two cracked ribs and smile on my face the next morning.

    My first show - Ozzy at the B-more Civic Center! April 25, 1982. Randy Rhodes had died on March 19... By the time Ozzy reached us, he was on his second guitarist since Randy - Brad Gillis. It was still a great show, IIRC. :p

    I hate to do this, but this is what it was like many times I was there... >:) Even saw Priest a couple times there! (But I'm NOT in this documentary, Thank God!)

    HAHAHAHA As soon as I read "Capital Centre", I thought of "Heavy Metal Parking Lot". Have you ever seen the sequel with the Neil Diamond fans? :p

    Metallica opening for Ozzy. UTC Kenzie arena. July 29 1986.

    Cliff Burton was still alive (RIP). John Marshall was filling in for Hetfield as he had a skateboarding accident injuring his arm/wrist and could not play.

    Jake E Lee played guitar for Ozzy, was awesome.

    I somewhat remember that show more it seems as there were some people picketing about ozzy and the whole ultimate sin tour thing, picketers/parents calling him the devil and what not. >:)

    During part of the show some moron in the front row threw a huge drink on Jake while he was playing, he never missed a lick, security escorted the guy out.

    I recall other details about that evening but can't post about that B)

    Crap I am old :D

    Looking back, the 1st concert was Night Ranger opening for Kiss. Creatures of the Night tour, same venue. That one was in 83 :o

    Back then we called it the Round House, held about 11,000 people.

    A friend of mine went to school at chattanooga state university as a journalist major. CSU had a small college paper. he also did photography for the paper and always had press passes for the concerts, I was his supposed assistant. :D

    Wild times back then.

    Damn right I was! With "was" being the key word here :D

    In my mind I'm way over due to rip it up somewhere somehow.

    But then my knee's, back, hairline and way smarter then me wife reminds me to just sit back down and behave.

    I saw Fleetwood Mac in 1974, Bob Welch period coming to an end, quartet IIRC, very enjoyable concert in a string of really good concerts I saw in 74-75.

    The Beach Boys, Summerfest, Milwaukee, WI. 1987? We happened to be at Summerfest and they happened to be playing. Not planned. Got a bloody nose going after the beach ball being tossed through the audience.

    AC/DC, Rosemont Horizon. 1988. <--This was the first show I actually stood in line to get tickets for and it was a great show. Blow Up Your Video tour. I still have the program somewhere.

    Dave Matthews Band, Red Rocks, 1995

    That rendition of All Along the Watchtower was absolutely amazing to witness in person.

    No lying, very first concert attended.
    For first concerts, I think mine will take the cake...

    I doubt it..back in 70 I was visiting family in Cinci and talked two cousins into going to Ludlow Garage to catch The Allman Brothers Band in Clifton...Made believers out of them too...

    I wasn't sure if it was 67 or 68 so I looked it up and it was July 1968 I saw the Doors, not 1967. I'll never forget Morrison making faces at the cops around the stage. I was 17.
