attended? For me it was The J.Geils Band who opened for Humble Pie at The Fox in 1972. I was 15. I went with an older friend and I was nearly scared to death. The "hippies" with long hair and beards were quite a shock for me. But after J.Geils began to play I was cool with it all. Went out the next day and bought the J.Geils, Full House live album at a Treasure Island store.

I saw The Beatles in 1966. Chicago's Amphitheatre! I'm still hoarse! My second concert was The Stones. Nice Thread. Brings back memories. Sir Paul is The Halftime Show for The Superbowl with a hancpicked band he's toured and stayed with for the past few years. It should be a great show. And inThe Beatle Rumorville, he's touring this year and will be in Chgo. in Sept. We'll see.

ok...I had to post this for several reasons but perhaps the biggest reason was to give everyone a really good laugh...my first concert was Duran Duran in 1983 when I was 12. I won tickets to their concert and I ended up going w/ a whole bunch of girls from my school. However, I have to say that my next concert was somewhat cooler...not because of the headliner (Huey Lewis and the News) but because of the opening act..which was none other than Stevie Ray Vaughn.

go ahead..laugh it up..it's on me!

I remember seeing Humble Pie in 72 and 73 but I can't remember seeing them at the FOX. I thought that they played the Municipal Auditorium.
I had totally forgotten about TI stores the predecesor to Richway and Target and Wal Mart.

1st concert was the Allman Brothers Band Piedmont Park October of 1969.

I think the first real concert was Fairport Convention with my mom. I dont know the date and they played in a school auditorium. It was maybe 3 years ago. My first real big one will be this march!

Jethro Tull at the Chicago Stadium in '71 during the Thick As A Brick tour. Worst seats and by FAR the worst sound at a show I've ever attended. Wild Turkey, Tull's bass player Glenn Cornick's band, opened, with Tull's drummer Clive Bunker (one of the best) pounding the skins.

Might have been '72, but I was a freshman in HS so I think it was October of '71. Gotta go back and check.

Wrong again, Rich-wrong month (November) and wrong year (1972).

Right opener,though, Wild Turkey.

Rich, we called that the purple jock strap tour...

I did not see Tull until '73 when the Omni in Atlanta replaced the old Municipal Auditorium as the official concert site for the city in '73. It was one of the worst things to ever happen to concerts in the city of Atlanta.

I was 14, the year was 1975 and the band was Aerosmith - Toys in the Attic tour...or was it Rocks? They opened with Toys in the Attic, I remember that much about it. Went with my sister who was 17 at the time and some of her girlfriends. I used to love tagging along with my sister and all of her "babe" friends. I was the "cute younger brother," but when you're a hot 17 year old chick, it ain't cool to play with a 14 year old. I had fun, nonetheless.
